“perfect little retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Stayed in the Tack Room. It was very very comfortable. No Ghosts....lol. No complaints at all. The staff was very friendly, the guest historian every morning with breakfast was fun to listen too, and the barn cats were very cool. Staying in the tack room gets you very close with Jacob the donkey and the two horses, as you step out on your patio, and their fence is right there! The off key rooster is good for a laugh too!

When I return to Gettysburg, I will def be staying here again!

Room Tip: The tack room is located in the barn, away from the main house, so you get your chance to get away a...

We simply booked the room but then the staff called us to make sure we did not leave tours to chance. They booked the tours for us and we didn't miss out. Each morning the B&B brought in a Gettysburg historian for a presentation before breakfast lending more meaning to some of the areas we visited. Food was delicious, ambiance excellent. We'll be back since there is still so much more to see in Gettysburg and we will return to Battlefield B&B.

Room Tip: We toured the honeymoon suite in the "barn". If you can afford it, go for it.

Our family can not say enough good things about the Battlefield bed and breakfast. The staff was so welcoming and kind and the accommodations were fantastic. The breakfast was amazing. This is the place to stay in Gettysburg.

My husband and I spent one night at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn earlier this month and had a wonderful experience. The B&B is quaint and homey with staff that goes out of their way to be accommodating; the room we stayed in was the Hart's Artillery Room and was incredibly romantic. We asked for a suggestion about where to have dinner and they suggested the historic Dobbin House Tavern, which was exactly what we were looking for. Breakfast the next morning was a tasty diet-buster and so filling that we weren't hungry for lunch! The only negative was that the people staying in the room next to us came in late and were very very loud - but any hotel/motel/B&B can have loud guests. Would I recommend this place and go back - absolutely!

Room Tip: All the rooms look lovely but the Hart's Artillery room was quite romantic.

We stayed at the Battlefield B & B in mid July. This actually is a very historic house from the Civil War and at one point, troops set up camp on their property during the battle of Gettysburg. You can see the artifacts left over on the property after the troops left!
We were so impressed with the hospitality, the room & the food. However what sets this B&B apart from others, is the educational value it adds by bringing in speakers to teach the guest on some aspects of the Civil War in Gettysburg. Each morning we had a different gentleman come in authentic dress to share with us their vast insights. This really added to our vacation in this area of the country.
A fun addition to this B & B, was the Civil War costumes they had on hand for you to dress up in to take pictures :)
Loved seeing the many kitties that roam the property (farm).

My husband and I stayed here in July 2013, and had a wonderful trip. We had our large dog with us, and the staff was so accomodating. We stayed in the Georgia 7th Infantry room, which is off the dining room and very private. The only other room up there is a massage room, which is not used at night. The linens were clean and crisp, the room was spotless and the bath towels where fluffy. Breakfast was amazing; omlets, potatoes, and apple cobbler one morning, french toast, potatoes and blueberry muffins the next and for our last breakfast we had scrambled eggs, potatos, cranberry muffins, tradidtion sausage gravy and biscuits. Then there were homemade cookies, iced tea and lemonade every night! The one hour history talks each morning were fascinating, and my husband was thrilled to be able to shoot a musket. There are 30 acres to walk your dog, which you need to clean up after (garbage can with bags is on the porch. There are 30 outdoor cats, so if you are bringing a dog, you need to be aware of this. You can bring your dog to the talks and keep them with you at breakfast as long as they are on a leash. What a wonderful place to stay, we will be back!!!

Can't say enough about this property had a great stay. My room was out of this world living in history. The speakers before breakfast amazed me with their knowledge of the battle and the Civil War. The staff were friendly and always on hand to help. Breakfast was plenty and good traditional fare. This Inn is also close to all attractions, a stay here is an amazing experience.
