We won a Gettysburg package trip as part of a charity auction and really didn't know what to expect. As it turned out, the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn is a real gem and one that we've thoroughly enjoyed. The staff is absolutely top notch, the rooms are comfortable and well appointed with (as you'd expect) a Civil War-era feel. The first-floor parlor is done in period style, with a late-nineteenth-century "coffin" piano and other touches. The dining room is beautiful. Breakfast (which was excellent) is preceded by an hour-long history lecture each morning, and these are by top-notch historians (retired museum directors and so on). The only downside is that they currently are doing construction of a wedding facility in the back and the construction was a little noisy after breakfast, but that's around the time that guests are getting ready to leave for sightseeing, so the Inn can't really be faulted. We couldn't have asked for a friendlier, better quality historic location in which to stay.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Unique lodging in an 1809 Civil War farmhouse on 30 private acres of the Gettysburg Battlefield. The farmhouse caters to history fans and vacationers with children and pets. Garden, Solarium, and Historic Barn Venue weddings and events are a specialty. Swan Cottage is a separate house with two jetted tubs and a full kitchen. The property is beautiful enough for the most romantic soul, and yet the inn has enough emphasis on history to satisfy the no-nonsense military history traveler. ... more less
