Friendly staff, excellent breakfast, nice quiet location with easy parking. Easy drive to town and the visitors center. We stayed two nights and particularly enjoyed seeing the goats, sheep, ponies and many cats...some friendly

The first night we stayed there the temperature in the room went down to 50. I guess thats why they keep 5 blankets on the bed. Next morning I complained abouth the temperature in the room and they gave us a portable heater. They said someone must have been playing with the thermostat. Next night the room was 90 degrees even after I unplugged the portable heater they gave us. Also the second night our powere went out twice. The people in the adjacent room lost their power at least three times and they also told me the first night their room was also freezing cold. I could not in good faith recommoedn this place to anyone else.

Lorenerol, Owner at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn, responded to this review, March 5, 2013
Unfortunately, the heating system had a malfunction the weekend that this guest stayed. We have remedied this with the guest in question. We immediately got help from a heating specialist that we trust. We are now in the process of adding hardwired baseboard heaters to several of our rooms so that the guests can have individual control over their room temperature. This should not happen again. The project should be complete by March 11, 2013. This should not be a concern in the future. Please feel free to give us a call if you have any questions about this episode. Your innkeeper, Florence Tarbox

My husband and I have been to Gettysburg several time. This was our first trip with our dog in tow. The Battlefield B&B is the ONLY B&B near Gettysburg that is pet friendly. And they really mean it; responsible pet owners and their pets are fully accomodated. We stayed in the Tack Room, which is seperate from the main farmhouse. Very convenient with direct access to the extensive grounds which were excellent for a walk after the fantastic breakfast. The history lecture before breakfast alone is worth the stay at the Inn. The finishings in the room were tastfully done and there was plenty of room for all our needs. Despite the frigid winter temps the room was toasty and they provided an additional heater to keep the beautifully tiled bathroom warm. The experience was fantastic and we hope to stay there again.

My dad and I come here a few times a year, and every time it's fantastic. The breakfast is phenomenal, as well as the people you meet during it. The presentations are accurate and entertaining. I love playing with the cats too! If you're thinking of coming to Gettysburg, stay here!

My husband ,14 year old son and I had a wonderful time visiting Gettysburg this past November for the first time. Staying at the historic Inn really made us feel like we had the complete civil war experience! We enjoyed watching a movie in the parlor in the evenings and loved being able to turn on the fireplace in our bedroom on the cold nights we were there and the bed was very comfortable. Everything was very clean, the windows overlooked beautiful property and it was peaceful! In the mornings we didn't mind getting up early to hear the different historians as they were so interesting! The breakfasts were generous and as delicious as they were beautiful, with something different served each day. We have raved about this Inn as well as the whole Gettysburg visit to all our friends and family!! We defintely plan on coming back!

Room Tip: we stayed in General Merrits suite and loved it!!

Stay here if you want authenticity and a cozy, comfortable feel. The presenters were knowledgeable and personal. We loved eating breakfast each morning while meeting other guests. We met people from as far away as Germany. What a fabulous experience for my 11 year-old son for whom we took the trip. It was a home school civil war field trip. It's the perfect place. I will come back again.

Our overall experience was wonderful. The rooms were comfortable and clean, the service and the staff exceptional.The gourmet breakfasts along with the history discussions over coffee while waiting for breakfast made this very special place even more special. The fact that we could bring our dog along made it perfect. We plan on returning sometime soon.
