“Battlefield B + B = The House of History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

Just stayed at the Battlefield B + B on March 25-27. I thought the experience was excellent, as did the two people staying with me. The highlight is that they have history programs in the morning from different guides and history workers in the Gettysburg area. I am not a Civil War buff, but I really enjoyed the insights these people had on the battle. The interesting thing was that you get much information at the battlefield, but the inn's presentations focus on other angles, which gives more of a complete picture of what happened in Gettysburg. We stayed in the 1809 section of the house. That area has an old-time feel, with the exceptions of the TV sets and modern bathrooms and gas fireplaces. Still, we liked those amenities. The staff is exceptionally friendly and helpful. The food is very good in the morning. The old part of the building has a ghosty feel - creeky steps and other things. We were there for two nights, and one night we went to the Civil war lecture series the inn is doing. The night we participated was on the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments. The speaker was very knowleable and very friendly. He was a retired judge who does history work in the area. He wanted us to ask questions during the presentation and to share our own insights. We had a nice discussion based on what we had learned at the end of his presentation. We are going back to the inn in the future because of the history focus at the inn. The dress in period dress in the morning, give a history lesson every morning, and have other opportunites for history events at the inn. And, the 1809 house and its barn were there during the battle and used by troops. We recommend the inn.

Room Tip: There are a limited number of rooms in the 1809 section of the inn. We wanted to be in these to get...

I was only here for one day, from the 26th of March until yesterday the 27th then I had to leave earlier then I wanted to meet up with my group. Even still, it was a nice place to stay in and was my first B&B experience. The staff was friendly, the room was nice, and as I walked the grounds yesterday morning before I walked back to where I was heading, they had very nice grounds. I would come back and stay longer next time!

The accommodations were nice but the owners talk about the Irish was terribly inappropriate. Don't knock the Irish from Maine and New York they were a big part in the winning the war! The facts were inaccurate and the comments were in poor taste.

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!
