Historical Visit

3.6 on October 28, 2014

Enjoyed wearing the old clothes and feeling like we were back 150 years ago. Nice people, great history lesson and excellent gourmet breakfast. We even took home the cutest little kitten you have ever seen.

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!


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.


Review of last weeks stay

4.0 on October 21, 2014

This was our second stay at the Battlefield B&B. As always, the morning classes about the Civil War and Gettysburg were great. The breakfasts are outstanding. A nice way to start your day at the battlefield. One thing that Florence needs to stay away from in the future however. During our stay, the B&B allowed a political group come in that turned into a rally. Not a good idea. The group was noisy until 11:00 PM with political signs and radical propaganda left behind. A negative on an otherwise nice stay. When staying at the Battlefield B&B, make sure to take the Miss Betty Haunted Tour. You end up at the B&B's barn that was used as a field hospital during the battle. The tour is very interesting and a nice way to complete your visit to the battlefield.

I have never enjoyed a vacation more than staying at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. They treated us like family. The breakfasts were delicious served by extremely capable servers. I felt so comfortable there, it is beautiful and I can't wait to return.

Innkeeper Response

September bliss

4.0 on September 21, 2014

The facilities were lovely, the hosts very gracious. Starting the day with a presentation by a licensed historian about Gettysburg was terrific. Both presenters we met were very knowledgeable and enjoyable. Breakfasts were wonderful. Although the BB & B is located a bit from Gettysburg proper, that added to the relaxation because it was so quiet and restful.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review! I am glad that you enjoyed our history presentations and breakfasts. I like to think that our location is close enough to all of the main attractions while still remaining tucked away in the relaxing countryside of Gettysburg. I am happy to hear that you feel the same way.


Labor day - great visit!
