Battlefield Review

4.2 on August 28, 2014

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for reviewing us! I am glad that you enjoyed trying our period costumes on.

Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

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.

Innkeeper Response
I am glad that you enjoyed your stay with us! I look forward to seeing you on your return visit to Gettysburg.

Very nice B&B

Civil War Vacation

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.

Innkeeper Response
I am happy that we accommodated all of your needs during your stay here. Thank you for the recommendation!

Vacation with my family and dog!

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.

my dog first vacation

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

Innkeeper Response
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.

Perfect place to stay in Gettysburg

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.
