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!

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!

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!
