Love this place

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.

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

Cozy treasure.

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!

Perfect getaway

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.

Peaceful and Relaxing
