Wonderful stay at Battlefield B & B

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.

Innkeeper Response
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.


Great stay, great service!

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.


loved everything about it

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.

Innkeeper Response
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!


Relaxing Get Away

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!

Innkeeper Response

Enjoyable visit

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.


Battlefield B & B

5 on November 04, 2014

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...

Innkeeper Response
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.


A great place to stay.

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!

Innkeeper Response
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.


Visit from Georgians

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.

Innkeeper Response
We have since removed this iron from the Seventh Georgia room. My apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you for your review.
