The cluster of surrounding history rests in peace and comfort here. We shall gladly return.

My wife and I came up for a relaxing weekend. We showed up later on a Friday, but the staff actually stays onsite until 9, making check-in a non-issue. The house has an old section and a new addition. Some rooms in the older part have a fabulous exposed stone wall. There was a TV in the room, but it definitely detracts from the charm of the room ( can't be helped ). If the inn had been fully booked, we'd only have 2 neighbors, the different kinds of rooms were intriguing. I think we have our eye on the Tack Room for our next visit. Breakfast was nice, but I was a little upset with the lack of options. Plates were nicely prepared on an individual basis, and items were not cold, but I think a few family-style options would have been nice. 24 hour coffee and tea station was also great! The inn is tucked away down a small access road, it was very nice to not be in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Gettysburg. 10-15 minute drive into town, made it still feel like a relaxing oasis. We'll definitely come back.

The room was fantastic, the hospitality could have been a little more personal. Other than that, it was a great stay.

My husband and I have stayed at many B&B throughout Gettysburg and this by far is our favorite. We loved the historian that came to speak was wonderful. We also loved visiting with the horses and all of the cats. The beds were very comfortable and breakfast delicious!
I am glad that you consider Battlefield B&B your home away from home. I hope to see you and your husband on your next trip to Gettysburg!
4.6 on February 03, 2016
We had a wonderful time, rooms were exceptional and clean. The staff was very friendly.If there was anything I would change, it would be more of a variety of breakfast .
Thank you for your kind response! I will submit your breakfast suggestion to our cooks. We are always looking for new ways to improve our customer's experience here. I hope to see you again, perhaps for your next Anniversary getaway.

My husband and I decided to get away for one night and booked a room at the Battlefield Inn B & B. I'm so glad we chose that one! The proprietor and staff were friendly, accommodating and knowledgeable about the activities and history of the area. Our room, Graham's Artillery, was warm, cozy and comfortable. The bed was like sleeping on a cloud yet not too soft. Our room was the original parlor of a 1809 farmhouse and included a working gas fireplace. Before eating a hearty and delicious breakfast, we were able to sit in on a talk from a local historian about the lives of civil war soldiers as an added bonus. We can't say enough positive things about our stay here but just know that we are already planning another visit (this time with friends) this coming spring. We definitely recommend the Battlefield Inn; it was all we could ask for in a B & B!! Pat and Glenn
Thank you for writing such a detailed and thoughtful review about your stay in Graham's Artillery. I look forward to seeing you and your friends in the spring!

Can't wait to go again
And we cannot wait to see you again! Warmest regards.
5 on January 11, 2016
We picked this place because they allow dogs and because it sounded great on the website but it turned out to be even better. The owners were very friendly, and accommodating for all the guests by cooking Christmas Day dinner which was above and beyond what anyone could expect. They also offered a music event and dinner the next evening which was really fun. We loved our brief visit and hope to go back soon.
Christmas is a particularly special time of the year to be visiting us here at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. I do hope that you consider coming again before next winter, for instance we do specialty breakfasts on Easter which many of our guests love to come for. Warm regards.

My husband, son, and I recently stayed in the cottage at the Battlefield B&B. It was our second visit, the first being four years ago when we stayed in the Texas 1st Infantry Room. We really like the place. The proprietors are sincerely friendly and accommodating, plus there are always interesting and friendly guests, folks from other parts of the country with an interest in the civil war so there are always lively discussions. This year we spent Christmas eve and Christmas at the Battlefield B&B. Because the proprietors have such a natural way with people it felt like coming home. Florence played Christmas songs on an old organ and had a spread that included an array of treats sweet and savory, and fresh hot wassail. Local friends stopped by for a chat by the fire and truly all felt well in the universe (no small feat!). Everything was clean and comfortable. Food allergies were easily accommodated. Overall, a very pleasant and relaxing experience. I definitely plan on returning.
I am glad that you stayed with us over the holidays, Christmas is always a particularly special occasion here at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. As a repeat guest I am very pleased to hear that you had such a wonderful second visit with us. I look forward to seeing you on your return visit!
4.6 on December 29, 2015
Our party of four had great fun staying here--fabulous proprietors and lovely interesting surroundings--Go there--You'll love it!
Thank you for your enthusiastic review! I hope to see you and your friends on future visits to Gettysburg.
5 on November 30, 2015
Very nice room. The owners and staff were always eager to help. We attended their Thanksgiving dinner, elegant table setting, wonderful appetizers and a nicely catered meal.
I am glad that you enjoyed having Thanksgiving dinner with us. I hope to see you again for another one of our special events. Coming up on March 17th we have the St. Patrick's Irish Concert and Dessert hosted inside the Solarium event venue. If you are interested call me for more details at 717-334-8804. Warm regards.
4.4 on November 23, 2015
I had a most relaxed and re-energizing time during my stay at the Battlefield B&B. The staff was gracious, as usual, and the hosts were warm & welcoming. Considering I travel with a Golden Retriever, I am quite impressed with the pet-friendly atmosphere. The history program was informative and provocative, stimulating further reading and interaction.
I am pleased to hear that you and your dog had such a wonderful time staying with us. I hope to see you two again in the near future!
3.6 on November 17, 2015
If you love history and are an animal lover, this is the place for you. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is great.
I as well as the entire staff of Battlefield B&B appreciate your kind and thoughtful review. Thank you.
3.8 on November 11, 2015
This was our third stay at Battlefield B&B and we continue to be amazed by the experience. The buildings have been expanded beautifully and the hospitality is second to none. The history event every morning before the terrific breakfast is totally unique and my son and I learn so much from them, and they are enjoyable. We never regret getting up early to attend them. I can't imaging staying anywhere else in Gettysburg as Battlefield B&B sets the historic stage perfectly.
As a repeat customer it is wonderful to hear that we have continued to exceed your expectations with every visit. I truly appreciate your kind and thoughtful review of your stay at Battlefield B&B. Thank you.
5 on November 11, 2015
The staff was excellent. Our room was clean and well appointed. The breakfast was second to none. Finally, the history talks before breakfast were so very interesting. Cannot say enough good things about this place. We will return in the future for sure.
I am very happy that you had as much fun as we did this year at Halloween. If you came for the paranormal definitely check our event calendar as we have those types of events all year long, such as the Haunted Battlefield Bash on April 1, 2016. I hope to see you again in the near future!
5 on November 08, 2015
My wife and I love Gettysburg and we always look forward to staying at the Battlefield B&B. Florence, Debbie and the entire staff have always provided a wonderful getaway from work. Our two dogs, Rusty & Mazie come with us making it a perfect vacation. Every morning before a scrumptious breakfast there is a Living History Presentation from gentlemen with a passion for the Civil War era. I highly recommend the Battlefield B&B.
5 on November 06, 2015
Enjoyed our two day stay! Loved the B&B...the staff was wonderful and breakfast was delicious!!
5 on November 02, 2015
I love traveling with my pets and this B&B is the best place to stay in Gettysburg area that accomadates four legged family members. We stayed 4 nights in the Swan Cottage and it was perfect.
5 on October 31, 2015
We really enjoyed our 2 night stay. Room was great. The History presentations in the morning were fantastic. They really set the stage for our journeys out into the Battlefield and town.
5 on October 26, 2015
Beautiful grounds, helpful staff, clean rooms, very tolerant of my kids (10,9 and 8) banging on the pianos and running around. Relaxed atmosphere, LOVE the outdoor cats. Great story telling by the inn keeper. I would definitely recommend this for your stay. PLUS Great history HERE!!
5 on October 24, 2015
We stayed here in October/2015 it was wonderful and what a nice restful vacation. We visited all the historic battlefields. The breakfast was great as well as the historians who talked every morning before breakfast.
5 on October 20, 2015
Our room was immaculate. Everything was perfect from the temperature in the room to the extra thick fluffy towels. Details were not overlooked here!!The grounds and garden were very serene. My husband, 2 German Shepherds and I enjoyed the back porch, especially in the morning. Everyone, staff and guests were very friendly. This truly is a home away from home. The breakfast was perfect, lite and fluffy pancakes, sausage, mixed fruit and coffee. This was our second stay here. We absolutely love it and will be back!'
5 on October 19, 2015
Went to Gettysburg for a night and the Swan Cottage was great for a couple or family that enjoys cooking and likes privacy. Stopped on the way to cottage and purchased ingredients for a great dinner. Also, very quiet accomodations was able to enjoy the front porch swing and massage chairs. Great place to visit and will do so in the future.

We wish we had more time to experience the Battlefield Inn but loved our one night stay in Houghtelin's Hideaway. The "cave" bathroom was magical, the bed so comfortable and the breakfast yummy. We would stay there again.
4.4 on October 11, 2015
Battlefield B & B is a very comfortable, relaxing place to stay for your Gettysburg experience. The breakfast was excellent and the service top notch. The location, from both an historic perspective and as far as convenience are unbeatable.
4.4 on September 27, 2015
Enjoyed the stay at Battlefield B & B. However disappointed my slip on shoes disappeared from the patio that was right outside our room. I had left them outside due to grass and dirt on them and during the day they simply disappeared. Very surprised this happened there at such a nice place. Not sure we will be returning.
My most sincere apologies for the loss of your slip on shoes. We may be able to help you though. We have a pair of brown Rider brand flip flops here in our office that were left behind by a past guest. Do those sound like the shoes that disappeared during your stay? If so, please give us a call at 717-334-8804. We would be happy to ship them to you free of charge. Thank you.
4.2 on September 19, 2015
Second time we have been here for our anniversary and once again a good choice! Great spacious grounds with walking trails, warm cookies and homemade lemonade in the afternoon and a great room!
5 on September 17, 2015
wonderful bed and breakfast. Definitely will stay again.
2.2 on September 06, 2015
This is occupies a very nice piece of property and the original stone building is also very nice. The problem with this inn is the owners have not used these things to their full advantage. Furniture is shabby and uncomfortable. There's clutter everywhere. There are some interesting artifacts and such, but they are displayed poorly. Common areas are dark and cluttered as well. Staff is not what I'd call personable, with the exception of one of the women who serves the breakfast. I have been to many beautiful and welcoming b&b's, this is not one of them.
5 on August 30, 2015
The breakfast was amazing! We stayed at the swan cottage and I was very impressed! The house was a pretty good size-big enough to stay for a week or 2 let alone a few days. I told them I was a vegetarian and when we got there I also mentioned I'm hypoglycemic so I needed an egg along with any type of sweet breakfast like French toast or pancakes. The breakfasts were delicious and they added an egg to my French toast (I wish I had the recipe, it was so great!). My mom is gluten and lactose intolerant and they made her awesome meals as well. Everything was eaten! We loved the morning lectures on the Civil war, they were very interesting and informative. The staff was great and very personal and friendly. They were very helpful and if you needed to make any reservations they were there to help or answer any questions. If we come back again I'd love to stay at the Battlefield B&b again!
3.8 on August 30, 2015
Although the "registration" process put us off a bit (a sit down, go over the rules with a staff person who was nice enough, but a little awkward) was made up for by the incredibly entertaining and educational Historian's presentation before breakfast (Mike). The room had the basics and was clean.
3.8 on August 17, 2015
My stay at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast was nice. It was in a quiet, peaceful setting. The bed and breakfast has a lot of the old Civil War era charm inside. It was tastefully decorated and felt just like stepping back in time. There were a couple of minor issues in my room like the toilet clogging up a little now and then, but other than that, everything was perfect.
4.0 on August 16, 2015
Stayed here while on a birthday trip with my son. We both loved the place. My 10 year old loved it and is planning when we can come back! The historian was GREAT!
3.6 on August 14, 2015
Very nice place. Morning civil war presentations before breakfast were great. Only issue was sound isolation. Noises carry throughout the house and threfore people who talk loudly or talk after "quiet hours" in main house living room can easily be heard in bedroom areas.
4.6 on August 12, 2015
Nice place to stay, loved the view and the kitties!
4.4 on August 10, 2015
We stayed here for our 5th anniversary, and really enjoyed our stay.We loved that we were able to bring along our pup, and he was so welcome! He enjoyed running around the beautiful grounds. The morning history lessons were fun, and they were even so kind as to let us have a late checkout on our last day when there was no one scheduled to stay in our room. They allowed us to keep our doggie there while we shopped and ate downtown. We will be back!
2.8 on August 04, 2015
Cleaner apparently used our bathroom and didn't flush afterward. Apart from that minor issue, our stay was very pleasant. Breakfasts were great, and the morning lectures by experts on the battle/town/period life were excellent. Made the visit all the more worthwhile.
3.4 on July 28, 2015
Stayed two nights with our mini-dachshound. When we pulled up were met with about a dozen feral cats. NIce room, but not big. Only a small window overlooking the downstairs roof :( The kureg machine was nice, so was cookies at night, but the ice maker they had needs to be upgraded and the ckt bkr kept tripping when the microwave in use. Close to downtown. Breakfast was nice but they need more protien choices. The red panties found under the bed when we were leaving was a nice touch.
4.2 on July 25, 2015
Found this to be a pleasant experience. The room was comfortable & clean. We particularly like the history presentation in the morning before breakfast was served. The breakfast was not the best one we have ever had at a B&B but certainly wasn't the worst experience either. The place was full & I think having to serve everyone all at once really pushed them to their limit.
5 on July 01, 2015
Not only did we receive a lovely email to confirm our stay but a personal phone call as well! We knew then that this was a special place. We stayed in Houghtelin's Hideaway and what a room! Very clean and spacious with a wonderful ensuite and nice patio. The recommendation was for dinner at Springhouse Tavern (downstairs from Dobbin House) was spot on. The morning history program was a nice added bonus and breakfast was simply fabulous. With so much to do and see in the area I am sure we will be back and this is the place to stay!!
5 on June 22, 2015
Our Stay at Battlefield B&B was outstanding - can't say enough. Beautiful grounds and setting, lovely building and rooms, great breakfasts! The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. They really went out of their way to make us and our dog feel very welcome. The location was also perfect, as it was close to both the town and the battlefield.
5 on June 09, 2015
Wonderful stay. Exceptional staff outstanding service
4.8 on May 29, 2015
A Live History Lesson before a delicious Breakfast! Cookies & Lemonade in the afternoon after site-seeing! Coffee & Tea on the Deck as you enjoy the evening breezes before a delightful & comfy nights rest! Explore & Enjoy the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast!
4.4 on May 24, 2015
I was unable to partake of the breakfasts or the history talks due to the schedule of the dog show I was attending. I was very happy with my room, the public areas and the grounds. I hope to return soon with my husband so that we can explore the battlefields and enjoy your lovely B&B.
4.6 on May 24, 2015
staff very nice, friendly. very beautiful location. breakfasts were excellent, loved the history lessons in the mornings
5 on May 20, 2015
We loved this B&B. Christi was awesome. She really took the time to make sure we had everything we needed and pointed us in the right direction for meals. We loved her! The breakfasts were wonderful. Filled us up until dinner. The room was great and accommodated us very well. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to others. Thanks for a wonderful time.
5 on May 19, 2015
We had a very wonderful visit! The staff were very friendly and helpful and the other guests were a joy to talk with! The Historian gave a nice overview of how a soldier in those days would have lived. Glad we were able to stay at this bed and breakfast!
4.6 on May 18, 2015
Name the occasion - the stay will be worth every moment.
5 on May 05, 2015
The location, staff, room and breakfast were all perfect! We stayed in the converted barn and was lovely! Hope to get a chance to stay here again.
5 on May 04, 2015
We got married at the B&B 3 years ago (took advantage of their elopement package, which was wonderful) and now go every year for our anniversary. We LOVE the Battlefield B&B! We stay in the Tack Room, which is beautiful and tranquil and private. A little pricey, but worth every single penny for our yearly splurge. The food is incredible, people are wonderful, and ambiance is amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone!
4.6 on April 22, 2015
a b and b is the way to go....a professional and efficient staff staff and a historic period building....can't get any better
5 on April 22, 2015
Loved our visit to Gettysberg and the opportunity to share it with our dog, Rufus. The in was a highlight of our stay.
4.8 on April 17, 2015
Had a great family stay at this B&B and will definitely will be going back! The staff was welcoming and available, the food great and the history lessons so engaging my 11 year old wanted to learn more! Perfect getaway!
4.4 on April 15, 2015
The inn is beautiful and historic. The grounds are well maintained and our room was spotless and the exposed stone added a special ambiance. The service was friendly. Breakfast was delicious and a good portion. The inn is close to the battlefield and Gettysburg, but not in the center of town, but I would definitely recommend it for a quiet beautiful stay, and its excellent paths along the property.
4.4 on April 10, 2015
This is the second time I've stayed here and it was great both times. I did miss seeing Jacob the donkey and heard the same speaker as I heard last year, but all in all it is a wonderful place to stay. We stayed in tack room both times may have to try a room in the house next time.
5 on April 05, 2015
Battlefield Bed and Breakfast is a wonderful and unique experience. The staff are outstanding and very customer service oriented. The rooms are clean, beautifully decorated and make you feel right at home. This bed and breakfast provides so many thoughtful touches and creative experiences!
4.0 on March 27, 2015
I decided to book Battlefield B&B, since my husband is such a Civil War buff. He was not disappointed. The room was part of the original house and the breakfast talk by a Civil War expert was very captivating.
4.4 on March 16, 2015
We were the only people there for the first and third nights of our stay. We received excellent service and the food was outstanding. Just a small note that some of the outlets in the room we stayed at the second and third nights need to be replaced. They do not hold a plug, as I plugged my phone in the recharge overnight and the plug fell out and it did not charge. I then noted that several of the outlets are loose. The window coverings might need to be updated. Overall our stay was excellent as always. Thanks for your hospitality.
5 on March 12, 2015
So happy I found this place, our stay was wonderful and cant wait to go back Diane
5 on March 10, 2015
Visited with my best friend on a quick trip up to Gettysburg and back the next day (from DC). Really enjoyed our time there! The staff was sooo friendly, the rooms were great, the grounds--beautiful, and the history talk the next morning was amazing! Definitely coming back (hopefully in warmer weather) to enjoy this beautiful location again.
4.8 on February 21, 2015
Nice place. Large parlor room that would be great for a family gathering or intimate wedding. Only negative was that I thought it was closer to the main part of the battlefield.
Thank you for staying with us. To help orient future travelers, we are two miles from the Peach Orchard and the heart of Pickett's Charge. We are on a privately owned part of the South Cavalry Battlefield in an original 1809 farmhouse and the cavalry monuments are along our driveway. The whole park is 8 miles across and it takes 20 minutes to drive from one side to the other. The Visitor Center is also about 15 minutes away. We hope to see you in the future.
4.0 on February 19, 2015
The B&B was quaint and charming. Great historic old location. The room was comfortable and the staff was very nice. The breakfast's we had each day were fantastic. The historical speaker was very informative. Very close to historic battlefield which was easy to get to. The only negative was the showers were not very good. Water pressure was sporadic, tempature fluctuated and the water flow even completely shut off for several minutes during the shower. That was not a pleasant experience.
4.4 on February 10, 2015
We had a lovely stay for our 51st anniversary. Nice place. We must come back when the weather is warm and not wet so we can explore the property. Like the fact that it is pet friendly. Have relative that do not go to places like this because of their animals.
We have so much fun with our guests with pets that we are committed to making this part of our specialty. There is nothing like adorable dogs to bring guests together. Thanks for staying with us and sharing your anniversary.
5 on February 10, 2015
Had a wonder visit. Gen. Merritt's room was cozy and the fireplace was awesome to warm up by after walking around the snow covered battlefields all day! Innkeepers were very helpful and pleasant, and excellent cooks. Breakfast was outstanding both mornings of our stay. Can't wait for a return visit.....Stayed with some great people, and made some new friends. Thanks much for a terrific, relaxing time!
5 on January 29, 2015
We really enjoyed our stay - the innkeepers were so welcoming, as well as the other guests. Had two programs, which were very entertaining & breakfast was delicious! The massage chairs in Swan Cottage were wonderful! Will have to come back in summer!
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed the amenities of Swan Cottage. I anticipate your return once the weather warms up.
4.6 on January 24, 2015
We had an amazing stay. Highly recommend to all overseas travellers (we are from Australia and those from the USA) made to feel very welcome. Close to all facilities and the battlefields. Plenty of room for the dogs and the beautiful breakfast made fresh each morning fantabulous. Highly recommend the history presentations each morning every one is different.
5 on January 21, 2015
We stayed at the cottage for two nights and loved it.
4.2 on January 13, 2015
Excellent destination, lots of activities, great breakfast.And 15 minutes from Liberty Mountain Ski and Golf
Do consider staying with us again if you are headed this way for skiing. We'd love to have you.
4.4 on December 26, 2014
We had a wonderful time ... the cottage was lovely, breakfast was fantastic, the staff was terrific. We will be back.
I am glad that you enjoyed our Swan Cottage as well as our amenities. I look forward to seeing you when you return.
5 on December 04, 2014
We had a wonderful stay at Battlefield B & B. They treat our dog like a valued guest, loaned us dog food bowls since we had forgot to bring ours along. Each morning they had a historian present a program on some aspect of Gettysburg. The first day was on the civilians of Gettysburg and the second day on the life of a Union soldier. I had the opportunity to fire a replica Springfield rifle like they used throughout the Civil War. Both presentations were interesting and informative without being boring. Both my wife and I enjoyed our stay and look forward to going back again.
I am glad that you and your dog had such a comfortable visit here. We are very proud of our morning history programs and I am delighted that you found them informative. I look forward to seeing you on your future trips to Gettysburg.
5 on November 19, 2014
The General Merritt's suite was absolutely beautiful. The fireplace was a great finishing touch in an already cozy room. The breakfast was delicious, filling enough for even the pickiest of palates. All staff were incredibly friendly and willing to help as needed. All in all, a great stay!
It is good to hear that you enjoyed staying in the original farmhouse. Our breakfast cooks appreciate the compliment. I hope to see you again on your future trips to Gettysburg.
5 on November 16, 2014
We were so impressed by the whole experience. We loved the history presentations every morning and we were so interested to learn about the action around the south cavalry battlefield. We had never heard of it in any of our previous visits to Gettysburg. The location was just a few minutes from downtown and was beautiful. We loved that we could bring our dog, and she had lots of running room on the property. The breakfasts were delicious and very well presented. We will definitely stay here again.
Thank you for your review. I am glad that you learned new things about the south Calvary Battlefield from our history presenters. I look forward to seeing you and your dog on your return trip to Gettysburg!
4.6 on November 07, 2014
What a wonderful place to get away for some relaxation and fun. Loved playing with all the cats and strolling around the grounds. Will absolutely be back!
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you felt relaxed on your trip. I look forward to seeing you on your return trip to Gettysburg.
4.2 on November 06, 2014
A short overnight to try to catch the fall colors. A few days too late, but the ambiance of the tack room located in the barn made it worthwhile. Loved the animals at our door (and so did our dog), and the old stone walls. The morning history talk by a civil war renactor before breakfast was thoroughly enjoyable, and the breakfast was great! We and 6 other guests from New Jersey, California, and Austrailia lingered at the table sharing life stories without being rushed along by the staff. Very relaxing; next time we'll stay longer and see those fall colors!
I am happy to hear that the staff helped you relax and unwind during your stay here. I look forward to seeing you on your next visit.

We stayed for our annual Ghost Hunting Tour...was in the Grahams Artillery Room. Clean, neat and comfortable. Staff was always willing and able to accommodate any of our needs. Food was delicious and the other guests were a pleasure to meet and talk to. The inn is lovely and I really was looking forward to seeing a ghost...well, maybe next year....It was a very nice and relaxing three days. And the cookies were out of this world!!!! Thanks for the good time...
I love hearing from paranormal investigators. It's a shame that you did not get to see a ghost on this particular trip, maybe next time. I am glad that you had such a positive experience with our staff during your stay here. I look forward to seeing you on your future ghost hunts.

Enjoyed wearing the old clothes and feeling like we were back 150 years ago. Nice people, great history lesson and excellent gourmet breakfast. We even took home the cutest little kitten you have ever seen.
Thank you for giving our kitten a loving home! I hope you visit us again.

The history seminars at 8am were excellent. You don't get to choose your breakfast, one breakfast was served for all (no options). The rooms were cleaned daily and were well done. Our dog liked to have the run of the place (indoors). She had a great time!
We actually do have breakfast options available upon request. This is done at check in when the evening host asks about your dietary needs. at breakfast. Thank you for your review.
3.8 on October 21, 2014
Our favorite thing was the history presentation each morning. I wish we had stayed one more day and we could have had a more relaxed visit. As it was we were in such a rush to get to the battlefield that we didn't get to enjoy the inn fully. Just 2 somewhat negative comments. The water pressure in the shower was not good at all. The older iron in the room left stains on my white shirt and i had to get a newer iron. Thank goodness I had Shout To Go and was able to get the rust stains out. Personnel were very friendly.
We have since removed this iron from the Seventh Georgia room. My apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you for your review.

This was our second stay at the Battlefield B&B. As always, the morning classes about the Civil War and Gettysburg were great. The breakfasts are outstanding. A nice way to start your day at the battlefield. One thing that Florence needs to stay away from in the future however. During our stay, the B&B allowed a political group come in that turned into a rally. Not a good idea. The group was noisy until 11:00 PM with political signs and radical propaganda left behind. A negative on an otherwise nice stay. When staying at the Battlefield B&B, make sure to take the Miss Betty Haunted Tour. You end up at the B&B's barn that was used as a field hospital during the battle. The tour is very interesting and a nice way to complete your visit to the battlefield.
Yes, we learned out lesson on this group. We understood that it was going to be a folk concert. The music was entertaining but the rally outside was totally unexpected.
5 on October 07, 2014
I have never enjoyed a vacation more than staying at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. They treated us like family. The breakfasts were delicious served by extremely capable servers. I felt so comfortable there, it is beautiful and I can't wait to return.
Thank you for your review! I look forward to seeing you on your return visit to Gettysburg.

We had a wonderful time at this charming in. The history lesson and breakfast were both superb.
I am glad that you had a wonderful time staying with us! Thank you for your review.

The facilities were lovely, the hosts very gracious. Starting the day with a presentation by a licensed historian about Gettysburg was terrific. Both presenters we met were very knowledgeable and enjoyable. Breakfasts were wonderful. Although the BB & B is located a bit from Gettysburg proper, that added to the relaxation because it was so quiet and restful.
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed our history presentations and breakfasts. I like to think that our location is close enough to all of the main attractions while still remaining tucked away in the relaxing countryside of Gettysburg. I am happy to hear that you feel the same way.

Great B&B! Historians were excellent! Awesome quite location right off the south end of the park.
I am glad that you enjoyed our historians as well as our grounds! I hope that you visit us again soon.

Everything about our stay was outstanding, from the staff to the history talks, to the room and the breakfasts. So good in fact that we extended our stay by a day!! Steve and Chris.
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you stayed an extra day with us.

I was traveling with my dog and this was the best place I have stayed with a pet.
I am pleased to hear that you and your dog had such a great experience staying with us. I hope to see you and your dog again!

The service is second to none! This was a wonderful room and vacation! My girlfriend and I loved staying in the Tack Guest Room! We were treated like family by the staff and they graciously worked with us on any requests we had. We will DEFINITELY be staying again in the future!
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Tack Room. I look forward to seeing you on your future trips to Gettysburg.

Couldn't have been happier with our stay! We stayed in the Tack Room out in the barn and were overjoyed with the room and setting. We chose this bed and breakfast as it was the only one in the Gettysburg area that accepted young children. What a wonderful experience! The grounds were lovely, the room was set up for our sleeping arrangements with the sleeper sofa and even a pack and play that was provided and set up when we arrived. We had a private patio next to the horse stables with a separate entrance. The history program that morning was excellent and the children got to fire a real musket! Breakfast was phenomenal and cookies and lemonade were available in the evening. Coffee and tea was available anytime. The staff was great and we are already planning our next visit! Thanks for a great getaway that was private yet close to everything!
I am glad that you and your children enjoyed the morning history program as well as the snacks and breakfasts we offer. For future reference the particular history program that you participated in is offered on Mondays and Fridays, with Mike Chambers. I look forward to seeing you again on your return visit to Gettysburg.

We stayed only one night unfortunately but Cristi was a wonderful host & we felt right at home. I had the best sleep there of our whole trip, wow that bed is comfy in the Texas Infantry room! I love the morning story telling and the cozy breakfast. We had done the ghost tour with Betty as well that conveniently ended at the B&B. I will definitely stay there again when we visit Gettysburg in the future. My husband & two teenage daughters loved it as well.
I am glad that you enjoyed our friendly staff and comfortable beds. I hope to see you again on your future trips to Gettysburg.

1803 Farmhouse that has been made into a B&B. Many aspects are original. Some walls are paper thin, so be forewarned. You can bring your dog, but they have 9+ cats, which could be interesting. Breakfast is served with no choices. Historical lecture before/during breakfast was very interesting. Staff friendly and helpful. Overall a very worthwhile experience.
Thank you for your review! We do offer variations on our breakfast, however you have to specify that you have a preference for specific breakfast foods at check in. Otherwise breakfast is a standard set plate for every guest. I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed the morning history program. I hope you come back to visit us again on a future trip to Gettysburg!

A friend and I did a last minute trip to Gettysburg for the farmer's markets and such. We usually come with a larger group and either camp or do a motel, and have doing so for the last 6 years or so. Since it was the two of us I found the last room at this B&B and booked it. I was NOT disappointed. The grounds, the atmosphere inside the home, everything was so quaint and cozy. There are period costumes in the parlor that were fun dressing in and taking pictures. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast.
Thank you for reviewing us! I am glad that you enjoyed trying our period costumes on.
5 on August 27, 2014
This was a really charming B&B. We loved the historical aspect of the B&B. The talks that the local historians gave in the morning were really informative about this time period. It really added to our stay. Also the sit down breakfasts each day were delicious. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly and the warm cookies in the afternoon were really a nice gesture. This B&B was close to town and right next door to the battlefields. I would highly recommend it and will stay here again on our return visit.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! I look forward to seeing you on your return visit to Gettysburg.
3.8 on August 20, 2014
Very pleasant. The history talks before breakfast area nice touch, as are the numerous cats roaming around outside. The grounds are lovely.
I am glad that you enjoyed our grounds as well as our pets. Thank you for your review.
4.4 on August 15, 2014
With a Civil War vacation in mind it was fun staying at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. They were very accommodating by providing us with breakfast when we had to leave very early one morning. I would definitely come back or suggest this B & B to anyone going to that area.
I am happy that we accommodated all of your needs during your stay here. Thank you for the recommendation!
4.8 on August 12, 2014
I can not say enough good things about the bed and breakfast. We were so tired from a crazy busy week, and the track room was so comfy. The horses, donkey, and other farm animals made us smile. The history lesson I the morning was unique and special. The breakfast was so yummy! The grounds were a beautiful place to walk our dog. My favorite part was the huge bathroom. The pictures on the website fo not do the tack room justice.
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay in the Tack Room! We will certainly consider your suggestion to upload some more pictures of the room to our website.
5 on July 29, 2014
We arrived and immediately were welcomed and shown to our room. Which was even nicer than represented on the web site. The porch access to the barn and the horse, pony, and donkey really thrilled our dog. She enjoyed making friends and watching the animals. Breakfast was tasty, hot, and filling. We are already planning our return trip
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! It is good to hear that your dog enjoyed the company of our animals. I look forward to seeing you and your dog again on your return visit.
4.4 on July 26, 2014
The Battlefield B & B was terrific. We were traveling with our dog, and they made us all feel most welcome. It provided a really authentic feel to our visit. While our room was small it was perfectly adequate, and the common areas and grounds were absolutely beautiful. The best part of it was the one hour history session each morning. We heard two which were quite distinct and added a lot to our visit. The staff was wonderful and really were helpful. The grounds and animals made us feel like we were on a farm and we could begin to picture the part this historic Inn played in the battle. The breakfasts were delicious and they provided coffee, tea, drinks and snacks throughout the day. What a better place to stay compared to the chain hotels in the area!
I am glad that you had such an enjoyable stay with us here at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. I am happy to hear that our history programs and ambiance successfully immersed you in the culture and history of Gettysburg.
5 on July 24, 2014
Very much enjoyed my stay. The house and grounds are beautiful and historic and everyone was so welcoming and accommodating. Breakfast was absolutely delicious. It was lovely to be able to include my dogs in the trip.
I am glad that you and your dog enjoyed your visit with us.
5 on July 22, 2014
Plan to come back so peaceful and beautiful setting. Everyone was so nice, Breakfast was excellent. And got to love the animals.
I am glad that you enjoyed our breakfast and our animal friends. I look forward to seeing you again!
4.8 on July 18, 2014
This was our second time staying at the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. We stayed with our children and it is never a problem. Family pets are allowed and welcome here also and there are a lot of cats on the premises. The hosts/hostesses are very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is to die for! Our only complaint this time was our room was a little warm and there was no way to regulate it ourselves. We would HIGHLY reccommend this bed and breakfast.
I am happy to hear that you and your family enjoyed our breakfasts. I also appreciate your recommendation.

The Battlefield Bed & Breakfast was the perfect spot to spend our wedding night. The staff were all very helpful, and friendly. The grounds well maintained, the rooms charming. My only regret is that we didn't stay longer. So much to do, met some wonderful people that were also guests . I highly recommend the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. Lincoln & Paula Cross
4.6 on July 13, 2014
A wonderful, historic bed and breakfast on the battlefield. The rooms are very nicely set up and the staff is the best I've come across for customer service. There's a nice sitting room area with time period clothing and has a certain essence of 1863 to it. Can't wait to come back!
Thank you for your review! Our staff appreciates the compliment. We hope to see you again soon.
5 on July 07, 2014
This was one of the best vacations in Gettysburg, PA my wife and I had. The best part is they are pet friendly. We were able to meet two dogs who enjoyed their stay as much as their parents did. Each morning at 8 AM there is a history presentation. For Ghost Hunting enthusiast the barn and the rooms will keep you busy. All in all a great vacation and we will be returning to the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast Inn.

I love having the barn animals nearby and the pation outside

I enjoyed the stay. The cottage was too close to the main road. Service and breakfast was great! Interactions with others over breakfast was enjoyable.
4.2 on June 30, 2014
We enjoyed our room and the grounds. The flowers were beautiful! Our breakfast was outstanding too! But the coolest thing was the historian/story- teller in the morning. He was informative but did not make it boring. We loved him! Definitely keep this event at the inn. We also went on a candle light tour which ended in the barn at the B&B. Our guide's tour name was "Miss Betty". We recommend her too! Thank you to all staff!
4.8 on June 29, 2014
My family stayed here for three nights, and didn't want to leave! Our 10 and 7 year old sons wanted to stay another week. Our 20 month old daughter also had a great time. The rooms were spacious and authentic. The breakfasts were outstanding! Loved the daily history lesson. Can't wait to return!
4.8 on June 23, 2014
Lovely rooms and house! The food was good quality and the staff were friendly. Definitely going back next year. All the cats are a fun unexpected addition to the experience.
4.8 on June 22, 2014
This is the most amazing place to stay in Gettysburg! You're close to town, but far enough away to really "get the feel" of Gettysburg. Not to mention it's located ON the battlefield...an extra bonus! The grounds are picture perfect, the house and barn are beautifully kept, and there are some animals you can interact with as well. Not one complaint, and I'm very critical!
4.0 on June 14, 2014
Very nice B&B. The 1 hour historic presentation prior to breakfast was excellent
4.2 on June 09, 2014
This was the first time we stayed at a hotel with our dog and the Battlefield Bed and breakfast was the perfect place to stay. We stayed in the Tack Room which was in the barn, which worked well with a dog. The room was very comfortable and the breakfast was very good. The morning history program really added to our visit to Gettysburg.
5 on June 08, 2014
We had a most wonderful stay and enjoyed every moment of it! it was beautiful, entertaining and educational. So enjoyed talking with the other guests and the owners. Cannot wait to come back and see the gorgeous room they are building on!
3.6 on June 06, 2014
Was very comfortable and homey. Did not get to spend much time because of exploring Gettysburg! The only downside was the tea event that was going on and we felt like we were intruding when going to and from our room. Other guests mentioned this as well. Other then that it was a great place to visit and we will probably do it again. Our first time at a bed and breakfast. Thanks for the memories!!

Staying at the Battlefield B&B will truly enhance your visit to Gettysburg. The house was there during the battle, just outside the National Park, and it's surrounded by a beautiful large yard and fields with a big, picturesque barn and a menagerie of farm animals that add ambiance to your stay. Breakfasts are exceptional, beautifully prepared, presented and served, and each morning guests will enjoy presentations from local experts, including reenactors, on the battle's and area's history that set the experience of the National Park in meaningful context, particularly helpful for visitors who know little about either topic. The accommodations are comfortable, cozy and homey. This isn't your typical antiseptic hotel. Your room (There are ten from which to choose.) is furnished with period antiques, and you'll find interesting artifacts throughout the common rooms. Given the high quality of the service in all respects, the Battlefield B&B is a bargain. We've stayed twice, and we are planning to visit regularly, as much to enjoy the place as to experience the endless variety of Gettysburg itself.

We truly enjoyed our stay with our 7 month old puppy. LOVED the character of the Tack Room. Amazing grounds...picture perfect! Close enough to Gettysburg but far enough away from the traffic and noise of being right downtown. The breakfasts are INCREDIBLE! We are so glad we chose this bed and breakfast.

The Battlefield B&B Inn is located in the heart of Gettysburg, minutes away from the battle fields. The Inn does it's best at catering to one's needs, the rooms were comfortable and quaint, and the period talks quite interesting and informative. I would have liked to have had breakfast served during a time slot such as 7-10am. As it is, there is one sitting at 9am. This was late for us - one breakfast was excellent, the other so so. I'm not sure why they don't have a little buffet for early risers. Other than that, the grounds were very pretty and nice. For pet owners it is ideal.
4.8 on May 12, 2014
This stay was so much more than we expected. The history talks in the morning are excellent, and well worth getting up for! The staff can not do enough for you...so rare today to find people so willing to go out of their way for you. Highly recommend this as a wonderful place to stay when visiting Gettysburg. We WILL be back!
5 on May 05, 2014
The staff is helpful, friendly and accommodating. The morning history lessons are informative and a welcome change from ordinary B & B's. The breakfast is scrumptious and hearty. This is my second time staying at this B & B and my third visit to Gettysburg. I will stay here again for my next visit.
5 on April 26, 2014
We initially picked this bed and breakfast because of its dog friendliness. We were amazed to find it offered so much more. A history talk every morning, delicious home style breakfast, 30 acres of land to roam, located directly on the Gettysburg battlefield and incredibly friendly staff. I can't say enough about the greatness of our stay here. Highly recommended for anyone traveling with pets or anyone at all!
4.8 on April 12, 2014
We arrived much later than we planned, nearly 9 pm, but the inn keeper was waiting for us and gave us a full run through of the room and services. Only complaint was that the room colder than we like and we couldn't figure out how to adjust the thermostat or if it even worked at all, there was an electric fireplace but it did not appear to work either. The hot water in the shower was iffy. The breakfast food and service was wonderful and the best part was the 8 am talk about civil war medical care. We only planned to spend one night but would come back again to enjoy the property more fully.

My wife and I and our ten year old grandson stayed in the Battlefield B&B Inn while visiting Gettysburg. Our grandson is an avid history buff and quite knowledgeable in spite of his age. He absolutely loved the historical significance of the Inn. He spent an hour or more searching for battlefield relics in the fields on the farm. Our room, Reilly's North Carolina Infantry suite, was a perfect fit! Beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished we slept well after a Gettysburg tour in the rain! In the morning the Civil War history talk from a reenactor was excellent and very informative. He answered questions from all including our inquisitive ten year old. The final highlight was the opportunity to fire the actual Civil War era musket. A delicious and delightfully presented breakfast was served by period costumed servers following the morning program. What a beautiful activity filled stay we had. We will be returning! Our grandson has already asked his Dad to take him back to Gettysburg and stay at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn.

My husband and I fell in love with the Battlefield B&B and will not stay anywhere else when visiting Gettysburg ever again!!! It only took us 2 hrs once we arrived to decide we wanted to stay an additional night at the B&B...lucky for us our room was available for another evening!!! Breakfast was amazing and the staff was so amazing and helpful. My husband enjoyed his 60 minute massage that I had set up for him prior to us arriving! The room, and grounds were beautiful! They had ghost stories at night and history lessons in the morning which was a nice addition to our stay!! My husband and I enjoyed it so much that we decided that we will be making a yearly stay at the Battlefield B&B for our anniversary!!! What a great stay very clean and I would recommend it to anyone!!!
4.0 on September 23, 2013
My husband and I stayed at the Battlefield B&B in September 2013. We had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and nice. The food was outstanding. We especially liked the history lessons each morning. We would go back again.
4.6 on September 06, 2013
This is a great place to stay! It is only 10 minutes from the downtown area with the shops and about the same amount of time to the museums, battlefields and monuments, and even the college. I loved how it wasn't overcrowded (in fact I was the only one there the one night)! The cats, horses, and mule were also good company. The staff was helpful and yet they give you plenty of space to come and go as you please. I would recommend this B&B to anyone!
5 on August 22, 2013
Our stay at the Battlefield was so very nice! The Inn was beautiful, as was our room. Our Innkeepers could not have been nicer. The breakfast ( and cookies) were yummy. Breakfast was made even better by the information colorfully provided by Mike Diamond.
4.2 on August 22, 2013
This is not your normal bed and breakfast. So do not expect the usual. You are greeted by cats, a couple of horses and a donkey, and your host. Very laid back environment. This is one of the most homey and enchanting places I have been to. Very peaceful to walk the farm area. I am all for luxury when I stay away from home, but I wouldn't trade this place for anything. The facilities are authentic, clean enough, and quirky enough to be really interesting. We went for one night, and stayed for two. The morning speakers, who come at 8:00 AM to provide stories and insights on Gettysburg, are well worth the stay. Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the lesson before breakfast. We were fortunate to enjoy some very nice guests during our stay and all were real history buffs, so you can have a great conversation before you head out. My only concern about giving this place a good review is that I will not be able to secure a future reservation! You will love it.
4.4 on August 21, 2013
Our second stay here and it was as wonderful as the first. My grandson (14) made sure to set his alarm to get up for the morning history. Both the grandchildren loved the breakfasts and I am not sure if they left any cookies for the other guests. We will be back again. We love ghost hunting in Gettysburg.
4.6 on August 05, 2013
We simply booked the room but then the staff called us to make sure we did not leave tours to chance. They booked the tours for us and we didn't miss out. Each morning the B&B brought in a Gettysburg historian for a presentation before breakfast lending more meaning to some of the areas we visited. Food was delicious, ambiance excellent. We'll be back since there is still so much more to see in Gettysburg and we will return to Battlefield B&B. They go above and beyond.
5 on August 04, 2013
I stayed at Battlefield B&B just after the 150th Anniversary of the Battle this summer. The staff was pleasant and the food very nicely done. Evening snacks were a plus. I enjoyed the history from the themed rooms, to the artifacts in the inn, to the daily historian talk. This is why I went, and I was not disappointed. The easy access to the Battlefield was a tremendous bonus.
4.8 on August 01, 2013
The history presenters were all certified Gettysburg guides. All were retired veterans, who had a real love of their chosen topic areas. The grounds are very peaceful, and the farm animals added a nice touch to the former working farm. Breakfast was delicious and the chef accommodated special dietary requests. The staff is friendly and makes you feel right at home.
5 on August 01, 2013
Our family stayed at the Battlefield B&B as a large group. The staff was very kind and welcoming. The rooms are all beautiful and the beds are great. The farm was a delight to the children. The breakfast was beyond delicious. The staff makes you feel so at home. If I could rate it at 100 stars it would not be enough.
5 on July 31, 2013
We stayed in Reilly's North Carolina Artillery and it accommodated our family of 5 perfectly with the attached 2nd bedroom. We were greeted by Francesca and received a wonderful tour of the grounds and house. The chocolate cookies that greeted us that evening were a welcome and delicious treat! Breakfast was amazing as well. Old fashioned values and kindness made our stay wonderful! And the "soldier" who his presentation was just awesome. First time we ever shot a musket! Very fun. Would recommend this B&B to anyone traveling to Gettysburg!
4.6 on July 31, 2013
My wife and our three daughters stayed at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast for a single night last weekend. All the staff were friendly and helpful, and we had an excellent breakfast on Sunday morning before heading back out to the battlefield. The lecturer was informative and obviously new his subject well. We would recommend staying at this B&B if you are looking for an interesting, family-friendly, pet-friendly accomodation.
4.6 on June 14, 2013
The Inn is terrific! Staff is great and breakfast was a pleasure. We really enjoyed the pre-Breakfast talks by local guides. It was very helpful to be able to bring our two small dogs. The grounds are very nice, although we didn't enjoy the outdoors because of the rainy weather. The location is good - just 3 miles to town. Very quiet at night, which was preferable to dealing with crowds in downtown Gettysburg.
4.6 on June 13, 2013
We recently had our wedding at the B&B and rented out the facilities for the whole weekend. It was a great experience, ALL the staff was warm and helpful and I would easily recommend this to anyone. We stayed in the Tack Room and it was a great time. If you are scared of insects or don't like farm animals I would advise against staying in this room because it was a bit buggy and the farm animals were a bit noisy. I didn't mind because it added to the experience. The tack room's bathroom and tub were gorgeous and we were very happy with the wedding. They allowed us to use the inn for the rehearsal the night before and we had a fire the night after the wedding. If you are looking for a shabby chic barn wedding this is the location to do it at!
4.8 on June 06, 2013
My son and I enjoyed our two night stay in the 2nd US Dragoons room. The extra bed was very comfortable. The food was delicious! The pre-breakfast one hour Historian's presentation was great! The more one learns about what happened on July 1st, 2nd and 3rd 1863, the better the experience. We have read several books and have been interested in any Civil War programs on The History or Discover channels. Staying at an inn with "Field Hospital" history added meaning and understanding to our time in Gettysburg.
5 on May 10, 2013
Of some 40 B & B's we have stayed in the past few years, this was number one. Circumstance played a part, but we were totally satisfied with every aspect of our visit, even the simple things like rain hitting on the roof. Many thanks to Jason, Sandra, and of course Florence who puts it all together. Bill and Pam of Pittsburgh, Pa.
5 on May 09, 2013
A beautiful location with friendly and helpful staff. I spent one night but wanted to stay longer. Breakfast was amazing! Homemade snacks are left out during the day for the guests. They are helpful in directing you if you are looking for things to do. They also have events for the guests. I would stay here again and highly recommend if you are in the area.
4.8 on April 29, 2013
Everything was great the only thing that could have been better would be the bed. It felt like it had been there since the civil war. Not comfy at all.
4.8 on April 22, 2013
We stayed in the Tack Room in the barn.....wow..what a gorgeous room!!! Our dog loved the horse and farm animals outside our patio. The Civil War programs were very good and add so much to the visit. Staff is wonderful....a very peaceful and lovely setting....quiet and relaxing.
4.8 on March 19, 2013
Our stay at the Battlefield B&B was awesome! We were told to make ourselves at home and we did. We loved the staff, they were professional but very friendly. It was like visiting with an old friend. Our room was very clean and beautiful. We were told we could go in any room that the door was open and we did explore the house. Everything was clean, and very pretty!!! The food was delicious and well presented. If you want off the main drag this B&B is for you! We are country people and this B&B was just on the outskirts of town, which we loved. We did feel right at home there and will be coming back to stay again sometime!
4.8 on January 02, 2013
We enjoyed a very special weekend at the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. The Inn is elegant and cozy and the staff is exceptionally accommodating. We enjoyed ghost stories by the fire along with cultural and historic morning programs. The dining, a culinary experience, is something you must experience for yourself. Ms. Tarbox and her staff go above the norm in providing guest with a unique experience.
5 on November 12, 2012
My son and I stayed at the Battlefield B&B during our field trip on the civil war. The location was superb as was the food. The down-right, at-home feel was wonderful for winding down each evening. The civil war presentations were informative and fun. Our presenters don't know it, but they were shown in a high school civil war presentation that my 11 year and I presented. Thank you, Battlefield, for the perfect place. I'd like to come back just to stay there again. Whitne - Bountiful, UT

I have stayed here on a few occasions and I plan on returning in about a month. There are not enough words in a thesaurus to describe the experience you have here, starting with the scenic drive up. The rooms are beautiful, the beds are surprisingly comfortable, and the bathrooms are fully stocked with toiletries. The breakfasts are every foodies fantasy. The aroma wafting from the kitchen will definitely rouse you from your slumber and to the dining room for 9am. Ms. Tarbox, and the staff , are wonderful people, who manage to make their presence known when you need them, yet, seem to blend in with the surroundings so you truly feel as if you are home, rather than in an establishment. -Vee Panzeri

This was my first trip to beautiful Gettysburg, PA and my travel companion's 15th trip. He is a Civil War history buff and battle re-enactor. We frequently stay at B & Bs and Battlefield B & B was just delightful!. This historic home, located on the edge of the battlefield itself, is well-kept, lovely period decor and furnishings yet having all the modern conveniences. The grounds and surrounding acreage is beautiful with maintained trails for walking and exploring. We especially enjoyed the hour long living history presentation prior to breakfast each morning! Breakfast was scrumptious, hearty and beautifully presented. My favorite was the raspberry crumble muffins! After exploring the sights one rainy afternoon we enjoyed the comfort of the parlor reading and relaxing. While we did not have children with us I very much appreciated how family friendly Battlefield Inn B & B seemed to be. There were shelves loaded with games for all ages, books, costumes of the Civil War period to put on and take photos, tv, and lots of outdoor areas to explore. We very much look forward to another stay here!

Our trip to Virginia and Pennsylvania included as many Civil War Battlefields as we could fit into one weeks time. Battlefield Bed & Breakfast truly added a great ambiance to this "bucket list" trip. Swan Cottage was divine and accommodated the three of us perfectly. The gourmet breakfasts were beautifully presented and some of the best I have ever eaten. However, the biggest surprise was the Civil War stories told daily by the very knowledgeable speakers. This included sharing ghost stories on Friday night as well as firing a vintage rifle musket for the first time. An extraordinary visit to a magical place, thanks, The Silva's

My Husband and I were quite pleased with our stay at The Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. We had never been to Gettysburg before, and had plans of staying at 3 different locations during our trip. We loved the Battlefield B&B so much that we extended our stay there! It was so nice and peaceful there, and the breakfasts were absolutely amazing! The staff were very nice, and the homeade cookies in the afternoon were also a nice touch. I would highly recommend the Battlefield B&B for anyone staying in Gettysburg!!

The staff and setting are simply wonderful. We have brought our dog with us and the inn is so accomodating to pets, treating them as members of the family. Breakfasts are outstanding! The lovely farm setting just adds to the appeal. You won't be disappointed. Just a short drive to the center of Gettysburg.

My husband & I are looking forward to our next trip to this amazing bed and breakfast. The innkeepers do a wonderful job at making you feel welcome. Our room was beautiful as were the grounds & we really enjoyed seeing all of the animals they look after. Great breakfast too!

Staying at the Battlefield B&B was a real treat. The location is wonderful, the food is delicious, the rooms are so comfy, but the best part is the unique history provided in first person before breakfast each day! I was slow to get down the first day, and that was a mistake! Don't miss it!

Had two wonderful days/evenings at Battlefield B&B! The room was charming and very comfortable. Morning Civil War lessons were a big plus. Breakfast was well presented and quite tasty. Lots of little things added up for an A+ rating in our book. Would definately stay again when visiting the area.

we loved the wonderful breakfasts with freshly picked fruits and leaves on the plates. They were extremely accomodating for food allergies and needs. (I have food allergies, sodium restrictions and a vegetarian in my 4 person family group), the morning history talks were amazing & my 11 yr old son especially appreciated the muskat shooting

The location on the Emmitsburg Road perfect for access to everything to do with the battlefield. Everything is either 19th Century or made to look so and even with all the memorabilia it was incrediably clean and fresh. The breakfasts were not to be missed as the food and variety was excellent. Perhaps the greatest added value were the morning history presentations. Each of the lecturers brought thier passion for the history of Gettysburg to life and each engaged the guests. We also enjoyed the ghost stories on Friday night but slept through any paranormal activity that may have occurred. The minimum to take in Gettysburg is two full days.

We visit Gettysburg often, and we always stay at Battlefield Bed & Breakfast. We love the historic ambiance-the rooms and charming and cozy, the breakfast is fantastic. Especially impressed with how members of the staff will sit down with you and discuss Civil War history. The morning "living history" presentation is unique. And if you're into the ghost thing, Friday night ghost stories are lots of fun. Don't get too nervous though-we've stayed there many times and haven't seen a ghost in our room yet...

We got married at the Bed and Breakfast. Florence and the staff were very accommodating. They let us check-in early so we could get dressed at the inn. They supplied the cake and beverage. They even have a Reverand that marries people at the Inn so we didn't need to find one. The place is beautiful. They have land to take walks on. There is a pond so you can hear the bullfrogs at night. The place was clean and the staff was very friendly. Breakfast was wonderful. They always have hot tea, coffee and cookies for you to drink and eat during the day. The one day the cookies will still warm. We stayed in the original part of the farm house. We loved the hardwood floors. We loved that we felt at home. The inn is a wonderful and comfortable place to stay. Florence even sits and talks to the guests at night. The view from the living room is beautiful. I can't express how happy we were that we choose to get married at the inn and stay there for a couple of days. We will definately go back for our one year anniversary.

We recently spent 3 nights at the Battlefield B&B in Gettysburg; a beautiful farm on the southern edge of the Battlefield itself. A little outside the hustle and bustle of downtown and the tourist activities, but we found it a plus -- it captures the real feeling of old Gettysburg. Yet you are only 5-10 minutes from anything you'd like to visit. The inn is lovely, and beautifully renovated. Filled with vintage charm and antiques, yet the suites are modern with private baths, wi fi, cable TV and air conditioning. Our suite was immaculate, with a very comfortable bed (and I am picky!). We were greeted (on an unseasonably hot March day) with a picture of cold lemonade and delicious homebaked cookies. Each morning features a lecture by a fascinating local scholar or history expert, followed by an AMAZING gourmet breakfast -- not the typical buffet. French toast with bananas foster -- asparagus quiche and slovenian sausage. YUM! Breakfasts are plenty filling enough we never wanted lunch, either. Best of all, Battlefield B&B not only accepts, but lovingly welcomes dogs. We often travel with our border collie, and have been turned away at most B&Bs, and nicer hotels, and stuck staying in mediocre motels. It was a real treat to stay in an AA+ facility, AND have our dog treated like a valued family member. We also enjoyed Friday night ghost stories, and a Saturday night visit from a paranormal investigation team -- the activities at the inn (free!) were so great, we bypassed similar "for pay" activities in downtown. Highly recommended for anyone visiting historic Gettysburg, but also a nice treat if you are passing through, and just want a relaxing, romantic vacation that makes you feel like you stepped back in time. I imagine this would be an incredible place to hold a wedding -- reunion -- or for a honeymoon couple (besides the inn, there is an adorable separate cottage).
5 on March 10, 2012
Every aspect of our stay was wonderful. The food was delicous, the morning history talks were interesting and fun. The rooms were comfortable and elegant. Friday night ghost talks were entertaining and set the tone for our first evening in Gettysburg. The beautiful parlor with the fireplace was the romantic setting for our wedding proposal...we will be back soon. Definately where we will spend our honeymoon.

We hadn't been to Gettysburg since the new National Museum opened at decided to stay over at a B&B. The first thing we did was arrive on the wrong day - our reservations were adjusted without a problem. Battlefield B&B is nicely secluded off the road and the farm is beautiful, even in the winter. Our accommodations in Lancers 7th were perfect, and the areas downstairs were both comfortable and authentic. Food - great! Staff - Great! We had a relaxed, comfortable stay and hope to return in the Spring. Beverly & George Mehaffie

The Battlefield Bed & Breakfast was the first B&B I ever stayed at and that was 3 years ago. My family and I have been coming back every year since then. Florence and the staff make you feel very comfortable and welcome you like you are part of the family. The house and the property, well it's amazing! To actually stay in a true Civil War house and walk on the battlefield where so many lost their lives is an experience we will never forget. My daughter and I take a walk every morning, it's so quiet and we love to walk around the pond and take pictures of everything we can. The rooms are quiet, private, clean and beautifully furnished with Civil War era items and there is a story behind every door of the house. It's wonderful to hear the stories and history lessons that are given while being dressed in the clothing of the Civil War era. My son & daughter even got to fire a musket one morning before breakfast, it made their day. It truly makes you feel as if you are living in that time. The food is delicious and homemade fresh, my son can't wait for the french toast, he says it's the best he's had. The sights/tours of Gettysburg are only a 5 minute drive from the Battlefield Bed & Breakfast and extremely easy to get to. Once you stay here, you will understand why we come back every year! Thanks to you Florence and your staff for everything you do to make your place so special to all of us!

We were there for a paranormal investigation, in Gettysburg of all places. Steeped in history, there was a history talk every morning and a Friday night ghost story. The breakfast was purely amazing. We had some paranormal experiences, but who in Gettysburg doesn't? The Inn is a bit off the main road, on 30 acres of Civil War Battlefield, one of the only battlefields still in private ownership. Florence and her staff were delightful. There was always fresh coffee and cookies out. Lots of history in that place.

This "haunted" Bed & Breakfast, located on the actual Gettysburg battlefield. Not to close to downtown and not to far away from Sachs bridge and other key areas of the Battlefield for those interested in ghost hunting. Ms Florence, took to the stage, wearing her Civil War era dress, spinning scary ghostly stories on Friday night. Her dramatic improvisations during the readings added a frightful twist to the spell-binding tales. The atmosphere of the inn was just perfect, from the personalized welcome for each guest by the innkeeper to the "storybook - looking" black lab named Mollie, that belonged to one of the other guests in this pet-friendly establishment. Even the grounds on this 30 acre piece of American history were outstanding. My friend and I walked the entire property or should I say, were led by the "purr guides" which were the cat pet staff who seemed to know the entire grounds as well as the human staff did. A serene and frozen pond, covered with a fresh dusting of snow lined one edge of the property. Known for its bright green lilly pads in the spring, some say you might see the faries and sprites that hang out at the pond if you have a quick eye. We especially enjoyed the warm ambiance of the inn's interior, with beautiful antique furniture and a slight smell of apple pie baking. Our room was Reilly's North Carolina Artillery Suite and it was perfect. The two rooms in the suite were more than accommodating for us and we loved the queen-sized bed and the double beds in the other room, should we have any of the inn's ghostly apparitions join us during the night. Breakfast was perfect and hand-made for each guest by the inn's Chef David. The meal was absolutely delicious and all of the guests sat at one big table, like a family, which is how the Inn Keeper, Ms Florence's hospitality makes you feel.

Wonderful weekend - gracious, thoughful and caring hostess. Beautful surroundings. Only disappointment - we did not get to meet the resident ghosts.

This place was hospitality w/o pretention. Every question was answered, every service was provided, and, best of all, it's dog-friendly. I just loved it here! If you come, I'm pretty sure you won't be disappointed.
5 on January 11, 2010
Great, friendly atmosphere. Loads of things to look at. I needed a place that would accomodate my pets. I did an online search. Once we arrived at the Inn, the rooms and the animals in the barn were absolutely pleasing to us. But the thing that stands out is the friendly, hospitable innkeeper.

We have stayed in many B & B's in our travels and most were a positive experience. Florence and her staff at the Battlefield B & B have made our visits to Gettysburg the best inn experience ever. We feel right at home and because we can bring our dog, Fawn, our vacations are complete. Can't wait to go back next year. Howard and Susan Chambers, Almond, NC

I have stayed here 5-6 times before, usually 3-4 days at a time. Obviously, I would not repeat so much if I did not like it. The location is great, right on the south end of the battlefield. Only 3 miles from town, yet so comfortable, quiet and peaceful. One of the best features is the morning history program. One hour each morning of a fascinating program about some aspect of the battle, the war, life in GB etc. It really adds to your trip, you will often find it really ads to the experience of Gettysburg. Then, a family style hot and hearty breakfast, and plenty of it. Even though a B and B, the owner does not live there, so it more of an Inn in a farmhouse. It is old, so if you need 2009 spit and polish forget it. I see some have criticized the hot water, or lack of. I once had an issue, but I think they have solved any problems, and the water was hot, and plentiful. I have seen upgrades though the years to the bathrooms. They now have satellite TV in each room, which I never used, and also Wi Fi, which, yes, I used. (dinner reservations, links to things to do, keep up with email). I commend them on adding WiFi, no more dial-up! Above all, Florence and her staff are a treat. Cheerful, helpful, they go out of your way to make you comfortable. I'll be back, it's almost like home!

My husband and I stayed in Grahams Artillery. And we had an amazing time while there. We were there last December 27,28,29 2008. We heard some bootsteps in the room above (empty by the way). The room was cozy and inviting,the staff was welcoming and very nice, the food amazing. And my husband proposed to me that week. So yes it will always be my favorite place. :)!!!!!

It is hard to describe our weekend wedding at the Battlefield B&B without sounding cliche. Florence and her staff went above and beyond our expectations and made our stay a perfect one. If you are looking for a place to have a memorable wedding, as well as to enjoy all the history that Gettysburg offers, this is it! We got more than we expected in terms of quality, service and friendliness. Thank you so much for everything!

I travel a lot and don't usually call home, but I did so three times on my visit in August to tell my mother about the place. I knew she'd love the ghost story night and morning histories as much as I did. Now it's October and I'm taking her with me to experience the Battlfield B and B Inn.
5 on August 28, 2009
We have stayed in many B and Bs. The Battlefield Inn offers comfort and beauty. It is homelike. The breakfasts are superb. They offer a lesson on Civil War history each morning and they are very informative and entertaining as well. I loved every moment of our stay. They allowed our Scottish Terriers, who also had a great time exploring the beauty of the farm. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. There was no stuffiness but very gracious and warm. We will return and highly recommend The Battlefield Inn.
5 on August 24, 2009
The room was large and clean. They were well prepared for the guests by providing drinks and snacks. They were very informative for the best places to visit. Breakfast was phenomenal! Best of all, pets are welcome which made this B&B a rare jewel.

Visiting gettysburg's Battlefield B&B is like taking a vacation in history. dating back to 1809 this Inn is charming & exudes personality. A must see for all coming to Gettysburg.
4.8 on July 27, 2009
We were here in July 2009 and loved this out of the way B & B. It is next to the South battlefield, but away from the noise of town and the main battlefield. (but not far) We stayed in Rush's Lancers, and were very impressed. My husband never wanted to go to a B & B, but has already booked another visit. The history presentations in the am and the ghost stories Friday night were very nice extras.

I had a mid-week getaway and enjoyed this inn tremendously. The 8 AM history lesson followed by a wonderfully presented breakfast topped off the lovely rooms and friendly staff. I'll be back to this one!
5 on May 18, 2009
We were so pleased with our stay at this picturesque family friendly inn. Staying with 2 6 yr olds and their grandparents, we were able to meet all interest levels. The B&B was a perfect setting in spring, with specialized programs for all ages and interests. We felt very welcomed and the staff went out of their way to accomodate our dietary requests. The food was superb, and the presentation was beautiful. My children received experiences on the farm that they will remember for a lifetime, and we want to make this a regular holiday event.

This bed and breakfast took me instantly back to grandma's house. We had vertually free run of the house and property just as if it were our own. The decor, routine and morning stories made it feel as if you were immersed in the actual time of the Civil War and Gettysburg Battle. Hostess very gracious, breakfasts gourmet! Highly recommend for a laid back enjoyable vacation retreat.

Rustic setting, Enjoyed informative talks each morning, great for Civil War bluffs! Food was good. Fireplace in room didn't work, hot water was when it wanted to work.But we were very comfortable. We were there for Thanksgiving 2007, dinner was wonderful, Staff was very nice.
In 2009, we switched to a tankless hot water heater. We are saving energy while improving service! The hot water is endless. All the fireplaces have been checked and are in good working order. You can relax by the fire or soak in the tub! Hope to see you soon!

We were overwhelmed with the meals that were put before us. The staff went above and beyond to make everyone feel at home. The informative speakers that came to the breakfast table every morning was the best insided information anyone could ask for. Really enjoyed the Ghost stories and friendliness of the staff. Just minutes away from everything to do and see, Great location.

My husband, grandson and I really enjoyed out stay here. The staff is excellent. Van did a great job with the ghost stories and morning presentation. Would highly recommend it. Also, outstanding breakfast.
