My partner and I drove from Toronto and knew that we were going to arrive late so I shot the Inn owners a quick email letting them know we were gunna arrive late and they were fantastic about it. The fireflies lit up the battlefield at night and inside they had cookies and tea waiting. The owners are extremely knowledgable about the area, and have books, schedules and contacts they can recommend for just about anything. They recommended ranger tours that are free and were really fantastic. We woke up for sunrise and the battlefield right outside the door with monuments and the eternal flame in walking distance. It was misty and no one was around. Very special experience, you don't want to go anywhere else.
My only complaint is that our shower was a tight squeeze in the O'Neal room so if bathing is essential to your happiness try for a room with a full tub.
Food was also great, as a vegetarian I had full satisfying meals that had a great healthy but also indulgent feel. Since its the 150 year anniversary all the programs are in full swing and there is a great energy there.
