I booked a Lieutenant’s Lodge, named Indiana, for one night in Gettysburg for my family of 4. We booked the larger side of the lodge, the bedroom, kitchenette and living room were all one unit with the Corporal's Quarters Room on the other side of the double doors.
The beds were quite high off the ground, but it wasn't a hassle. They were soft and incredibly comfortable. I booked 2 queen beds for my eldest to sleep with me in one bed, my husband in the other and my youngest in his pack-n-play, I didn't know that the sofa turned into a sleeper. Once we arrived I found out the sofa converted, so my husband and I were each treated to our own luxurious bed.
The bathroom was incredibly large and very clean. There were loads of extra 'bath sheet' sized towels in the linen closet. The bathroom amenities were really lavish, I had to take them all with me. The water temperature and pressure was wonderful, the water got almost too hot. Having a window in the bathroom was nice too, for natural light. For those who complained about the maids not changing the sheets and towels everyday, The Lodges are trying to be green and save on water by only changing bed linens and towels when requested by putting the "change the linen markers" on the towels and bed.
The dishes and flatware were really nice, they didn't appear to be heavy duty restaurant quality dinnerware, which gave the room more of a country feel. Having two cold bottles of water in the fridge were nice as well.
We didn't get to enjoy much of the cabin because we arrived late and left by 11:00 the next morning. I would have loved to curl up on the sofa in front of the fireplace and enjoy a movie or a cup of tea, we just didn't have enough time. The furniture all looks original though, not like normal hotel furniture. The art was a really meaningful and thoughtful touch, they were all Civil War paintings.
The continental breakfast was nothing special. It's a continental breakfast, so if you're expecting eggs, sausages and lattes, you're expecting too much. There's a nice selection of pastries, cereals, fruit, yoghurts and drinks. The 4 of us definitely had our fill. My only complaint, like many others, is the seating at for breakfast--bar height tables and unstable stools.
I really liked the location. I loved being so far from the hustle of the town. It was nice to sleep in a back country location, my mind truly relaxed. Driving through the countryside only added to our excitement as we got closer and closer to the downtown.
All in all, I loved it at The Lodges at Gettysburg. I will be back for sure.
