I travel extensively throughout the States staying primarily at B&B's. I have been coming to the Battlefield Inn for the past 9 years. Each time I feel like it is a homecoming. The Inn is such a warm place to be - from the lovely breakfasts to the freshbaked goods in the afternoon. The staff are gracious and knowledgeable about the area. The morning history talks are always very enlightening; the Friday night ghost stories are usually scarey, expecially when one of the guests has had an experience (or thinks that the soldier's shadow on the stair is real!).
Overall the experience is totally enchanting, particularly so during the special themed weekends when everyone is encouraged to dress in period costume and enter into the spirit of the theme. The weekend of the Ball in January is my favorite. I will come all the way from Arizona in a snowstorm to attend that weekend!
I can truly say that for the kindness of the Innkeeper, the quality of the staff and overall ambience, this is one of my favorite inns in the country
- 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
