Late Arrival

4.8 on April 12, 2014

We arrived much later than we planned, nearly 9 pm, but the inn keeper was waiting for us and gave us a full run through of the room and services. Only complaint was that the room colder than we like and we couldn't figure out how to adjust the thermostat or if it even worked at all, there was an electric fireplace but it did not appear to work either. The hot water in the shower was iffy. The breakfast food and service was wonderful and the best part was the 8 am talk about civil war medical care. We only planned to spend one night but would come back again to enjoy the property more fully.

Highlight of Our Spring Historical Vcation!

4.8 on April 07, 2014

My wife and I and our ten year old grandson stayed in the Battlefield B&B Inn while visiting Gettysburg. Our grandson is an avid history buff and quite knowledgeable in spite of his age. He absolutely loved the historical significance of the Inn. He spent an hour or more searching for battlefield relics in the fields on the farm. Our room, Reilly's North Carolina Infantry suite, was a perfect fit! Beautifully decorated and comfortably furnished we slept well after a Gettysburg tour in the rain! In the morning the Civil War history talk from a reenactor was excellent and very informative. He answered questions from all including our inquisitive ten year old. The final highlight was the opportunity to fire the actual Civil War era musket. A delicious and delightfully presented breakfast was served by period costumed servers following the morning program. What a beautiful activity filled stay we had. We will be returning! Our grandson has already asked his Dad to take him back to Gettysburg and stay at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn.

Absolutely The Best!!!

My husband and I fell in love with the Battlefield B&B and will not stay anywhere else when visiting Gettysburg ever again!!! It only took us 2 hrs once we arrived to decide we wanted to stay an additional night at the B&B...lucky for us our room was available for another evening!!! Breakfast was amazing and the staff was so amazing and helpful. My husband enjoyed his 60 minute massage that I had set up for him prior to us arriving! The room, and grounds were beautiful! They had ghost stories at night and history lessons in the morning which was a nice addition to our stay!! My husband and I enjoyed it so much that we decided that we will be making a yearly stay at the Battlefield B&B for our anniversary!!! What a great stay very clean and I would recommend it to anyone!!!

Quaint B&B

4.0 on September 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Battlefield B&B in September 2013. We had a wonderful time. The rooms were clean and nice. The food was outstanding. We especially liked the history lessons each morning. We would go back again.

Labor Day Stay

4.6 on September 06, 2013

This is a great place to stay! It is only 10 minutes from the downtown area with the shops and about the same amount of time to the museums, battlefields and monuments, and even the college. I loved how it wasn't overcrowded (in fact I was the only one there the one night)! The cats, horses, and mule were also good company. The staff was helpful and yet they give you plenty of space to come and go as you please. I would recommend this B&B to anyone!
