Hickory Bridge Farm Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 1 Orrtanna B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 15, 2014

My wife and I have been to Hickory bridge a half dozen times in the past 2 decades. The immediate thing I feel is relaxed, the smell of the restaurants garden, (herbs and spices etc.). Then you meet the boss, a great lady who makes you feel right at home. The area is great for walks, or runs, as it's seated on a back road. And while you're in the wooded area you are literally a mile or so from Gettysburg proper. The rooms are great, the beds and fixtures are also great. The breakfast's are delicious and plentiful. We"ll go back again later in the summer to unwind.

This was my first time to a bed and breakfast in over 20 years. The cottages are charming duplexes. The cottages were well equipped, clean and very comfortable.They each have a wood burning stove, air conditioning and porches with chairs which face a creek. The location was very peaceful and quiet. The owner was very kind and hospitable. The breakfast was delicious and fresh. We would have eaten dinner there but we stayed on a Monday night in which dinner is not served. I think dinner is served on weekends. This is a great place to stay if visiting Gettysburg which is 15 minutes away. My girlfriend and I chose this location to avoid the noise of staying in Gettysburg. I know I will be staying there again for at least 2 nights. I would highly recommend this B and B.

I came here for a Valentine's Day Banquet that my church had here. The food was so fabulous! I loved how everything felt so much like a home-cooked meal, but super high-quality. They have a nice little gift shop and great, great service! Sometimes they have live entertainment too!

We ate in the restaurant for the first time on a Friday evening. (We did not stay in the B & B.) The restaurant is in a restored barn that is beautifully decorated with lots of memorabilia and farm implements. Our meal was served family style by a very pleasant server. The food was outstanding and the service was great. She took time at the beginning to explain how the dinner would be served and all of our choices. The food was satisfying for everyone at our table. Desserts were great too. The pumpkin pie was delicious. The menus are published in advance so you can plan ahead... prices are fixed. There is no alcohol served.

By the way, there is live entertainment on most Fridays. The performer on the night we visited was a solo pianist who was great!

We stayed in one of the cottages far from the main property. Although the cottages are a little bit of a walk from the main house, the privacy was nice. Since two cottages share a wall and porch, it might've been a little awkward had we not been traveling and staying next door to our friends. The cottage room is comfy but a little rustic. Think more "glamping" and less hotel room. Due to the wood stove in the room there was also a pervasive smoke smell that did bother my allergies bit...

All that aside, we really enjoyed our stay. It is quite a drive from town, but with all the tourists it was kind of nice to escape. The innkeepers are charming and welcoming. Breakfast in the main house was delicious. We also enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The portions were ridiculous and everything tasted great. We would stay here again if traveling with friends.

We were on our way home from our honeymoon and wanted to extend it. Plus, my husband had never been to Gettysburg. Well, we almost felt guilty not doing more touristy stuff and visiting many of the historical sites. We were so relaxed and felt like we had our own little get a way. Mary Lynn and her staff were helpful and upbeat. The breakfasts were devine and dinner was great too. Plus, Mary Lynn even has a cookbook you can buy to bring those meals back home with you when you leave. We stayed in the main farmhouse and the accomadations were great. Whirlpool tub was so relaxing. We cannot wait to go back.
