Pet Friendly B&B

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.

Great stay

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.

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.

Best B&B in Gettysburg

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.

Great Stay - Kids will have a Blast!!

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.

Wonderful get away!!

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!'

Weekend Getaway

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.

Wonderful Wedding Night Getaway

4.0 on October 16, 2015

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.

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.
