So many positive things have been said about the Doubleday Inn that there really isn't much new to add, except to say that they were absolutely correct. We prefer staying in B&B's, and have had wonderful experiences in all of them, from Hawaii to Gettysburg. This was top notch in our book. Todd and Christine are terrific hosts, very helpful with advice and they run a beautiful place in a peaceful, historic location. And Molly, the canine Diva, was quite graceful with all of the guests and very open to any back scratching offered. The breakfasts were to die for - the breakfast casseroles and caramel French toast were unbelievable. In the evenings, cookies and hot water with a wide selection of teas and coffee were available, if you had any room left after dining out.
The location is not within walking distance of town unless you walk a lot, but this was not a problem. Parking wasn't difficult anywhere in the area, but that will change when the festivals are in full swing, I suppose. We liked being slightly outside of town, but able to get to any attraction quickly and easily. The added bonus of watching hummingbirds, chipmunks, rabbits and even foxes on the grounds was fun.
One of the highlights for us was discussing the battle with Todd and Christine. They have a great wealth of knowledge about the strategies used by both sides and why they were used. Their insights of the officers personalities, relationships and what the troops were experiencing were very thought provoking and really brought the humanity of the battle alive. They truly love sharing their knowledge - what a treat!
My only disappointment (but not my wife's) - no ghostly appearances. But then again, none were promised.
Treat yourselves and stay at the Doubleday Inn.
We had the Colonel Devin room on the 2nd floor, which had a beautiful view of the day one battlefiel...
