First time at The Brick House Inn and was not disappointed! We traveled with our 17 year old , who loved the Inn and our room as much as we did. We had two full days of museums, and the Battlefield tour, and having breakfast on the patio was just perfect.Hosts Brian and Tessa were so nice and gracious. The best was the location walking to so many places. We cannot wait to go back!

We recently stayed here while attending a wedding in Gettysburg. My husband is the B&B type as he is a very private person. I love them, so finding a place to stay is always a challenge and a compromise. While looking at dozens of lodging options for our trip online, I came across the Brickhouse Inn. I immediately loved the online photos and location. My husband liked the reasonable price. Then we began reading room descriptions and came across the Carraige House room. This room is above the garage and has its own separate entrance from the parking area. It was the perfect room for us! We were located behind the main house, a short stroll through the beautiful garden to the dining area. It was the best of both worlds, with the convenience and privacy of a hotel, but all the comforts of a B&B that I cherish. Our hosts, Tessa and Brian, were fantastic! The grounds are enchanting and the location really is terrific, just a five minute walk to Lincoln Square, or a block in the other direction to more tourist shops and eateries. Very close to the historic battlefields. But the best part would have to be the breakfast! The food was better than I imagined it would be, and much better than most upscale restaurants I have been to. We will definitely be booking another stay at the Brickhouse Inn!!

Even the stroll from the free parking lot behind this beautiful red brick inn was an experience full of beautiful gardens and a incredible water feature. It was just the beginning of a relaxing stay punctuated by delicious breakfasts and gracious hosts. The Inn is located within easy walking distance of restaurants, pubs and shops. The room was quaint, furnished in period style that enhanced the feeling of stepping back in time. Our hosts arranged a licensed guide to meet us in the parlor and take us on an extensive and incredibly interesting tour of the battlefields. We really could not have had a more pleasurable time!

This has got to be the cleanest place we have every stayed. The bathroom was immaculate! My husband pointed that out right away. Also, the innkeepers, Tessa and Brian, were very sweet. They made you feel very welcome. They area also great cooks too. The breakfast was delicious. We will be coming back again very soon!

The Brick House Inn is absolutely lovely, Very comfortable, clean, great location, wonderful breakfasts, and delightful innkeepers. My husband & I thoroughly enjoyed our stay there.

My Wife and I, and my Daughter and Husband, spent two great days at the Brickhouse B&B in March 2013. Having read the glowing reviews of others, I was expecting an outstanding stay. (Something that can lead one to disappointment!) However, Tessa and Brian and the two houses proved to be everything promised in the reviews. The rooms were great, the breakfasts were delicious and the entire staff took whatever time necessary to make our stay a pleasure. Highly recommended! Jim McEleny, Murrysville, PA

This is our sixth stay at the Brickhouse and it never dissappoints. Beautiful rooms, lovely service and a top notch B & B. Tessa and Brian do a wonderful job and make ewveryone welcome.

My husband and I were at the Brickhouse Inn for the weekend before Thanksgiving for the 4th year in a row. Brian, Tessa, Lee, and all the staff treat you like family, the rooms are beautifully decorated and maintained as if they were staying there, and there are no words for Tessa's breakfast's!!!! Make sure you have the shoo fly pie and ask for the Apricot French Toast. mange, mange!!

Tessa, Brian and staff were wonderful hosts. The breakfasts were amazing and my fiancee loved the chocolate chip cookies. We have already recommended the Brickhouse Inn to a few people. We will definitely will be back. Hopefully we wil get to experiance a ghost next time.
5 on November 03, 2012
This was our first B&B experience and it was absolutely incredible. I will never stay in a different B&B in all of Gettysburg. The garden is wonderful, breakfast is out of this world and our room was incredible (Carriage house). We enjoyed this experience so much that we'll be making a special trip to Gettysburg next year with this wonderful establishment in mind. The Inn Keepers were very knowledgeable and eager to assist with anything we needed. I can't wait to stay in the Kentucky room for our next visit. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone who enjoys them.
4.6 on October 28, 2012
Only spent one night here, but wish we'd had more time. Brian and Tessa made us feel very much at home in this lovely and historical house. Baked goods and lemonade were waiting for us when we arrived, and the breakfast was very tasty too. I would definitely recommend the Inn to anyone visiting Gettysburg, and would be happy to visit again. Chris A, Toronto, On
5 on October 27, 2012
Our first stay at a B&B was at the Brickhouse Inn and it was wonderfull! Brian and Tessa were wonderfull hosts! The rooms were beautifull and clean, the food was awsome! We met alot of great people and made new friends that we will continue to stay in touch with. We will stay there again on our next trip and will reccomend the Brickhouse Inn to everyone! Thank you again for making this trip one of our best!!!! Charlene Russell/Bob Tack

Tessa and Brian are knowledgeable, friendly, welcoming and helpful. We arrived after a long drive and immediately took their advice to visit the museum and cyclorama. They are very knowledgeable about the area and services, and we had a wonderful stay -- including the "extra" young lady who sat with us for breakfast. The three of us -- ladies of a certain age -- enjoyed our trip and would do it again in a heartbeat!
4.8 on October 23, 2012
We had such a wonderful weekend at the Brickhouse Inn. The Inn is beautiful and almost everything is withing walking distance. Breakfast was delicious and the innkeepers and staff were so helpful and accomadating. We only wish we could have talked more, but we were out and about with so much to do in Gettysburg. Also Brian emailed me about my stay and answered all my questions, including where to dine to making our reservations. My family and i will definately be back.
5 on October 22, 2012
My hubby and I wanted a weekend getaway. After looking on the internet we chose the BHI for it's great reviews, central historic location and good rates. We also booked an Ultimate Gettysburg package and upgraded to a 3 hour tour, as reccomended. It was everything we could have wanted. Brian and Tessa are amazing. All the staff was extremely helpful and gracious. The back yard grounds are a slice of quiet paradise. The breakfast was imcomparable. Our one and ONLY issue: we booked the New York room which was fabulous , not to feminine for my spouse. BUT a word of warning, if you are not used to traffic noises (we live in the boondocks) you may want to book a room on the other side of the Inn for a better nite's sleep.. But, please, stay here. You won't regret it!

Great location and accommodations, helpful owners and staff, and wonderful breakfasts. Tom and Donna CT

WE spent a very enjoyable 2 days at the Brickhouse Inn. The room was very nice and comfortable with a gas firplace. Socially with the guest was very nice. We met quite a few new friends taht we hope to keep in contact with. Breakfast was DELICIOUS! Our hosts were great, anything with asked for, they were there to accomodate us. We would love to stay there again and visit all the great things in Gettysburg.

We had a lovely time at the Inn. The owners were very kind. The property is very well maintained and the New York Suite provided complete privacy in each room. The Maryland Room was lovely also. Definitely recommend

Delicious breakfasts and great hosts. Very convienent to shops, restaurants and even part of the battlefield - walking distance. Very comfortable and clean. Highly recommend a stay here.
4.8 on October 19, 2012
A wonderful place to stay, key to all of the points of interest. Brian & Tess are great hosts. Very helpful in arranging tours and providing information. Breakfast is fantastic. Try the kiesch, it is great. Check out the wonderful English garden yard. A great place to relax and have a glass of wine or beer. Don't forget the short ribs at "J" and try the Dobbin house.
5 on October 10, 2012
We were very happy with our stay. The room was attractive and welcoming after a day on the road and very well located for enjoying Gettysburg. The parking is convenient and the house beautiful. Breakfast was very good, although we didn't care for the (weak) cinnamon-tinged coffee. We made the mistake of taking a key away with us: owners were patient encough to allow us to mail it back, which we appreciated. Would definitely stay again, and recommend Gettysburg highly as a vacation destination.
5 on October 08, 2012
VERY HIGHLY RECOMMMENDED! The best location in Gettysburg--so close to the battlefield and all the action! Walking distance to great restaurants, shops and the downtown area, yet the inn itself with the garden and koi pond is a quiet, peaceful oasis away from the crowds. Tessa and Brian are the most gracious and welcoming innkeepers, and Melanie and Lee on their staff are absolutely wonderful. Everyone helped us make the most of our short stay and coordinated all the extras to surprise my friend with a delicious birthday cake. The breakfast is first rate and the hospitality gets an A+++. An added bonus is that the Welty House is a Civil War Building and there are bullet holes on the balcony--it was like having a piece of history all to ourselves during our stay.
5 on September 16, 2012
My daughter and I stayed at The Brickhouse Inn this July and we can't wait to go back next summer. Our stay was for 5 nights and we could have stayed longer! The Ohio Room was just our size and very quiet even with the traffic out front of the house. We were greeted by Melanie who assisted with all of our questions, including Gettysburg College. My daughter and I looked forward to the next morning's breakfast and to our delight Brian and Tess always served something different and tasty! The location of the Inn was perfect for us since we enjoyed getting our history during the day and ghosthunting at night! We loved the wrap around porch to share stories with other guests as well as the beautiful garden to read and cool off. We highly, highly recommend a stay at The Brickhouse Inn. May be we can get back there before next summer!
5 on September 09, 2012
My two pre-teen daughters and I stayed at the Brickhouse Inn for three nights. What an amazing experience! We booked the "Ultimate Gettysburg Package" and I'm glad we did. The service was fantastic. My daughter's and I had a vacation we will always remember. The food at the B&B was excellent, and the location is within walking distance of downtown Gettysburg. We also went on a ghost tour and took an authentic Victorian photo at the Victorian Photography studio. I want to thank Tessa and Brian for a wonderful stay. Please visit the Brickhouse Inn....you won't regret it. My daughters are already asking when we're going back there. We definitely will stay at the Brickhouse Inn again.
5 on September 06, 2012
Not only is the Brickhouse B&B a gem, but Brian & Tess, the owners are a treasure too. Their calm natures match the serene gardens on the property. They arranged a private battlefield tour for us and our guide, John Wiexel, was outstanding. Delicious breakfasts, beautiful restored buildings, prime location, top notch service and Victorian charm are only a few highlights of our stay at the Brickhouse Inn.
5 on September 03, 2012
We booked the Alabama Room in the Welty House the week before we arrived. The Inn was beautiful and quiet. We were met by Lee, a very friendly and helpful manager. Tessa and Brian were gracious hosts. The breakfasts were outstanding. We do plan on staying in the Inn again, and we are telling everyone we know that the best place to stay in Gettysburg is the Brickhouse Inn.

Awesome!! Saved our marriage could not have been any better! Michael and Rachel Fitzpatrick
5 on August 23, 2012
What a fabulous B&B! Our room (Georgia) was wonderful, the staff was very welcoming, and the ambiance of the Inn and gardens was serene and relaxing. Breakfast was delicious, also. We thank Tessa and Brian and their lovely staff for creating such a warm and inviting atmosphere.
5 on August 16, 2012
Every detail at this Inn was wonderful, very helpful people that were a delight to be around. Great breakfast in a wonderful setting.Should have stayed longer.

Absolutely gorgeous stay, perfect location - walking distance to just about everything. The house was beautiful, Tessa and Brian are wonderful hosts, very helpful. The rooms are beautifully kept and clean. Just perfect, we cannot wait to go back again!
5 on August 09, 2012
Go and stay here, right in the heart of walking to everything the Brickhouse B&B is an outstanding value for your money.
5 on August 01, 2012
Our stay at Brickhouse Inn, Gettysburg was truly memorable, in so many ways. The property itself and its amenities are absolutely superb. Tessa and Brian could not have been more welcoming and helpful, particularly after our unexpected run in with a deer! Breakfast in the splendid garden setting was a joy on each of the sunny mornings during our stay. The food was delicious and abundant - our first experience of Shoofly Pie!! If ever we manage back to Gettysburg, we will be sure to stay at Brickhouse Inn, and will recommend it to all and sundry here in Scotland. Many thanks indeed!
4.8 on July 25, 2012
First and certainly not our last visit to Gettysburg. It was wonderful! Everything we wanted and more. Breaksfast was always outstanding and Brian, Tessa and Lee was so helpful and made us feel at home. When we come back to Gettysburg we will be staying at the Brickhouse. Thanks again for our great experience in Gettysburg.
5 on July 25, 2012
My wife and I spent 2 days in Gettysburg at Brickhouse Inn on our Summer vacation. We were completely satisfied with every part of our stay. Brian and Tessa were kind and attentive and made our stay most memorable. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the staff even did everything they could to accommodate my wife's special dietary needs. The food was truly gourmet. Would stay again without any hesitation. In fact I wish it wasn't so far from our home or we would make it a regular stop. Thank you Brian and Tessa for setting such high standards. We have stayed in many B&Bs and the Brickhouse Inn is on the short list of our favorites. G&E, Chicago area...
5 on July 23, 2012
The Brickhouse Inn certainly is the premier B&B in Gettysburg. The perfect location provides easy walking access to many of the great attractions and restaurants. From the moment of arrival Brian and Tessa make you feel as a welcomed guest in the clean and comfortable historic homes. Beautiful gardens and a delicious breakfast will have you fueled for the day's activities. All staff are knowledgeable and helpful in any planning of activities/dining for first time visitors. The Brickhouse Inn will be our choice of stay anytime we return!
5 on July 23, 2012
My sisters and I just spent a wonderful weekend at the Brickhouse Inn. Since we currently live in 3 different states, we have to plan to get together. We are already planing to return to the Brickhouse Inn. The innkeepers, Tessa and Brian, could not be more gracious as well as knowledgeable about the area and, important to us, its restaurants. They gave us excellent advice for both Friday and Saturday night dinners. The inn itself is lovely, comfortable, clean and very centrally located for Gettysburg activities. Breakfast was delicious -- a leisurely way to begin a full day of sightseeing! There are lots of choices for B&Bs in Gettysburg -- we feel very fortunate to have found the Brickhouse Inn on our first try!
5 on July 05, 2012
This is a wonderful place to stay when at Gettysburg! It is close to the battlefield, close to many other attractions in town, and the innkeepers-Tessa and Brian- and their staff go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and pampered. A wonderful, and unexpected plus of staying here, are the beautiful flowers and tress on the property. They are a great place to relax after a long day on the battlefield. I highly recommend this inn!
5 on June 28, 2012
Our stay at the Brickhouse Inn was "total relaxation". The service, accommodations and food were all excellent. The staff are friendly and eager to assist in any way they possibly can. I highly recommend The Brickhouse Inn as THE place to stay in Gettysburg!
5 on June 19, 2012
The Brickhouse Inn is very lovely, clean and comfortable. The rooms are beautiful . Brian , Tessa and staff were wonderful, helpful and friendly. They arranged a Tour of Gettysburg Park for us with George Newton. What a womderful, informative tour. I plan to spend at least two nights on our next visit.! The location is great. We walked to town and to dinner. I would highly recommend the Brickhouse Inn. Carol Mosko Chester Springs, PA
5 on June 19, 2012
My husband and I both believe that this was the best B&B in which we have ever stayed. It is conveniently located within walking distance to the battlefield and to dining and historical points of interest. Our room was well-appointed and clean and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast, which was served in their lovely garden, was delicious and plentiful. They serviced cake and cookies throughout the day as well as a large selection of teas and coffee. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit to Gettysburg.
5 on June 16, 2012
Our stay at the Brickhouse Inn was nothing short of AWESOME. The rooms were quaint & beautiful. The service EXCELLENT, everything was in order (we had one of the package deals) and our host Brian was very knowledgeable. The garden was so pretty and well kept. We will be back and will have the Brickhouse Inn as our choice to stay, and next time we will stay for more than a couple of days. Deb & Bruce Gillette, Wy
5 on June 13, 2012
My boyfriend and I stayed in the Ohio room for 2 nights and we absolutely loved it! The most important thing to me was that the place was extremely clean and that made me feel very comfortable. The gardens and scenery are beautiful! Everyone was very nice and breakfast was delicious! The B&B is in a great location. It was nice to be able to tour the battlefields and walk around town and then come back to the room when we needed a break. I would definitely recommend the Brickhouse to anyone and I hope to return again! Thank you for a wonderful and relaxing stay!
5 on June 12, 2012
Our friends recommended the Brickhouse B&B Inn for our vacation/honeymoon. The location is perfect as there are restaurants and stores within walking distance, yet in your room or on the porch, you feel like you have stepped back in time. Tessa, Brian and all the folks at the Inn treat you like royalty. Breakfasts were perfect every day, they were so accommodating with my food allergies and the eggs dijon are a must have. In addition, of course desert after the main course just makes this whole experience beyond words. The rooms are neat and clean to perfection, yet you feel right at home. We will be back…..Christy and Donnie
5 on May 31, 2012
Beautiful facility. Poignant reminders of the war include bullett holes in the walls. Brian is very bright and hospitable. Breakfast is hearty. All in all a very fine place. The town offers little except the really interesting battlefield. Have Brian recommend a tour guide.
4.6 on May 31, 2012
On our recent stay we brought friends who had never stayed at a B&B before - it was a wonderful experience for all of us; our rooms were perfect. Brian, Tessa, and Lee were so accomodating and gracious throughout our stay. The Brickhouse Inn is an immaculate, historic, and guest friendly inn right in the heart of downtown Gettysburg. So many rooms to choose from - we have stayed in 3 different rooms so far and plan to visit again next year - it's hard to pick a favorite - we like them all! The rear gardens are serene and welcoming, right down to the resident frog in the pond - a perfect place to spend a little quiet time in the evening after a busy day on the battlefield. Breakfasts are good and pentiful and a fine way to meet fellow travellers with similar interests; Brian and Tessa made a point of visiting with their guests at breakfast and were so helpful in providing information on places to eat, places to visit, etc - they are a wealth of information. Thank you Brian, Tessa, Lee and the rest of your staff for your gracious hospitality and attention to detail which assured us of a pleasant, relaxing stay.
5 on May 25, 2012
If you are looking for a step-back in time to the Civil War, yet have all the comfort and enjoyment of today, this is the place to stay. My husband is an author and has found the Brickhouse to be a place of inspiration and relaxation. It has a wonderful garden with a bubbling stream and even frogs to make you feel like you are in a magical place! Breakfast is A++too!
4.8 on May 24, 2012
Outstanding service, helpful in in details of the day and interesting conversation with guests and owners alike
5 on May 14, 2012
We had a lovely weekend at The Brickhouse Inn this past weekend. My husband and I took my parents and it was the perfect choice. Brian and Tessa were the perfect innkeepers and were so attentive. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious each morning. The location was perfect and even though it was on a busy street, it was a refuge from the tourists down below. I only wish it were closer so that we could visit more often. If you ever find yourself in the region, it would be worth a few extra miles out of the way to stay there!
5 on May 06, 2012
We had a wonderful stay at the Inn. It exceeded our expectations. When I think of my first visit to Gettysburg, one of the the main attractions for me was the Brickhouse Inn. We will be returning to Gettysburg and to the Brickhouse Inn.
5 on April 27, 2012
This trip to the Brickhouse was arranged by our daughter inlaw as an anniversary gift. She made an excellant choice for our getaway. It was the details that made the stay at Brickhouse enjoyable. Staff at the Inn bent over backwards to satisfy our every need. Upon arrival all we had to do was pick up the tickets and everything was arranged. Breakfast was delicious, and an enjoyable time when we had the opportunity to get acquainted with other guests from all over the U.S. Joe & Janice Hartman
5 on April 22, 2012
I have stayed at many different B&Bs around the world and was blown away by the friendly staff, cleaniness of the rooms, and the delicious breakfasts! The setting of the Brickhouse was spectacular, you could feel the history all around.
4.6 on April 17, 2012
Although this inn is just steps from everything, it is a classic peaceful haven with two charming and delightful inkeepers. The only thing that seemed awkward was tables reserved for groups traveling together at breakfast, which made the rest of us feel odd. I understand why groups would want this and I don't see any other solution but it was the only off note in a delightful stay.
5 on April 06, 2012
The Brickhouse Inn was a pleasure to vist. We were greeted graciously and the place was very clean. The breakfast that was served each day in a quaint dining room was complete with fresh fruit, sausages, bacon, eggs, muffins and freshly baked breads, coffee, juice, and a delicious homemade dessert. We highly recommend this Inn.
5 on March 13, 2012
The Brickhouse Inn is awesome! Tessa and Brian are truly gracious hosts, and took care of our every need. Ditto for every staff member there too. The whole B&B is immaculate in every way and the food truly outstanding. The coffee is great too (and we are coffee snobs) :-) The location is the best in town. It's within a 1-3 minute walking distance of all major attractions except the battleground which is only about a 2-3 minute drive. Our certified guide met us right in the living room and drove us there. He knew everything about the battle, telling us in detail what happened at what time of day and names of all the officers. The attractions packages are great. Melanie (inn manager) made all reservations for us which was so very helpful. Everything was done and just waiting for us to arrive. We definitely recommend the Brickhouse Inn 1,000%! When we return, we wouldn't even think about staying at a different location.
4.4 on March 13, 2012
A fine Inn for a fine town. This was my first stay in a B&B and the Brickhouse Inn exceeded all expectations, yet I found it to be an excellent value. Would definitely stay again. Ryan, Maryland
4.8 on February 29, 2012
This was the first time we stayed at a B&B. We were looking for a short weekend vacation from Baltimore over President's Day weekend. We were very pleased with the spacious accommodations of the South Carolina room. The location was great, walking distance to all of the historic area restaurants and shops. The house and grounds are very well kept and must be beautify in the spring when everything is in bloom. Breakfast is a 3 course delicious meal every morning and the staff and inn keepers are very nice. We ended up booking a three hour car tour per their recommendations and it was well worth it. If we find ourselves in Gettyburg again, we will surely look to stay here as well as recommend it to friends.
5 on February 28, 2012
We spent a wonderful weekend here and enjoyed every moment of our stay. Warm, cozy and near all the history of Gettysburg, it's a must for the traveler who wants to get away and unwind! Breakfast was spectacular, and the Brownies and Green Jell-O were the best! Thanks Tessa and Brian for being great Innkeepers. See you in the fall.
4.8 on February 15, 2012
Spent two nights at this charming B+B. Most impressed with the overall cleanliness . The hospitality recieved leaves you with a most welcome feeling.The location could not be beat. Going there in the off season had maney advantages. I would recommend this Inn to anyone.

This stay was from 01/06/12 to 01/09/12. We had friends meet us there and we all had a great a time as always. Brian, Tess and the wonderful staff took care of our needs like we were family. Again, we will be staying at the Brickhouse in October, 2012.

This is our 10th or 11th year (lost count) staying in Gettysburg on New Year's Eve. As always, our stay was stupendous! That's why we continue to stay at Brickhouse each year. We had a complimentary bottle of wine + everything was great. They always accommodate my special dietary needs. Thnx Brickhouse for another wonderful stay!!

Our stay at the most comfortable inn--loved the hot water radiators--was enhanced by the thoughtful suggestions of our hosts. Absolutely follow their advice to hire a guide for Gettysburg battlefields, and the two restaurants we chose from the several they suggested both earn high marks.
5 on December 20, 2011
This was our second wonderful stay at the Brickhouse Inn. The owners and staff were gracious and welcoming. The room was beautifully furnished and exceptionally maintained. We will return again!
4.6 on December 17, 2011
We stayed in the Virginia room on a Saturday night in December. The accommodations were cozy and clean. The staff was super friendly and even booked our battlefield tour guide for us. Location was great, walking distance to the center of town and the Dobbin House Tavern (recommended dinner spot). Breakfast was very well done, and I really appreciated the carrot cake, cookies, and coffee available in the dining room throughout the weekend. I will recommend this B&B to anyone visiting Gettysburg, and I wouldn't think of staying anywhere else on my next trip out there!
5 on December 03, 2011
We spent 3 nights at the Brickhouse Inn and enjoyed it very much. It was our first experience at a Bed & Breakfast and it couldn't have been better. We chose to stay in the Victorian house and the room was very comfortable and the inside of the house itself was very nice and very well kept. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious and Tessa and Brian were great hostesses. We enjoyed talking with them very much. If we are ever in Gettysburg again we will definitely stay a the Brickhouse Inn and will recommend it to all our friends.

The Brickhouse Inn was a delightful overnite stay with gracious hosts and all the amenities. Wonderful breakfast to start the day. Clean rooms, period furnishings and genuine, friendly owners/hosts. 6 in our group and all very pleased (2nd stay for one couple). Location is perfect and easy parking in the rear. Overall an outstanding B&B.

My husband booked two nights at the Brickhouse Inn in the Georgia Room. It was a beautiful house with great accommodations. The staff was warm and welcoming and the grounds are great. (We will have to come back in the summer). We enjoyed the porch in the back of the Welty House. Overall a great stay, I would recommend and likely return back. Enjoy!

What can I say about our stay at the Brickhouse Inn. First of all, I cannot say enough wonderful things about our stay there. Tessa and Brian were so friendly and even went out of their way to know our names, even though they had a full house(s) of tourists to deal with. What attracted Carin and I to the Bickhouse Inn was the history of the place. On our first night there, we stayed in the Victorian House which was built around 1898. We loved the old time charm of the place, right down to the old fashioned door knobs! Our remaining 2 nights were spent next door in the Welty house. This was a special experience for a history geek like myself due to it being there at the time of the battle. The bullet holes in the walls of the house are a testament to that and really made the experience “real” to me. The rooms were furnished in such a way that one might think at it was 1863 and not 2011. Carin and I also loved the garden behind the houses. I refer to it as the oasis. Well shaded, the sound of the running water from the pond…. a great way to unwind and reflect after a day of touring the battlefield. No one could blame you for dozing off in the oasis. The location of Brickhouse Inn was also a deciding factor in choosing where we would stay. The Inn was so close to the battlefield!! Carin and I took a short walk each morning before breakfast to Cemetery Hill and Culps Hill. It was so nice to beat the tour buses there! To view each monument and let our imaginations take us back to 1863 was truly a unique experience. So, what can I say about the Brickhouse Inn? See above!! I could also go on and on but seeing and staying is believing.
4.4 on October 31, 2011
We had a wonderful stay at the inn with the October record falling snow. It is within walking distance of downtown so we could walk everywhere to eat and shop. The room (carriage house) was great, very private and very very clean. Can't wait to go back.
5 on October 27, 2011
This-our 5th stay- was, as always, a most enjoyable and memorable experience. Brian and Tessa do everything to make one feel special. The rooms are lovely and impeccably clean, the beds are very comfortable and the breakfasts are outstanding. The sitting rooms and outdoor sitting areas are inviting and peaceful. This year we did a 3 hours personal battlefield tour with a guide recommended and secured by Brian. It was excellent! And never question a recommendation given by Brian or Tessa about local restaurants or attractions...whatever it is, it will be worth your while. Get away from the hectic pace of everyday life and give yourself a treat with a stay at the Brickhouse Inn. K.Campbell...Pittsburgh, PA

As always, our stay at the Brickhouse Inn was superb. The Kentucky Suite is beautiful and our hosts took care of the little extras, from making sure a bottle of wine awaited us in our room to making our dinner reservations, that made this a carefree and truly relaxing getaway. Innkeepers Brian and Tessa are simply the best and breakfast, as always, was the exclamation point to a wonderful stay. We can't imagine staying anywhere else in Gettysburg.

Even though the weather did not cooperate for my surprise trip for my husband to Gettysburg, we had a great time. The Inn was cozy and friendly. We met some really nice people from all over the country. The garden/patio area was really nice (wet, but nice). Everything was clean and well maintained and such gracious hosts. We will certainly be back for our next trip.

My husband and I would recommend this B & B to anyone. Rooms clean and comfortable food was very delicious and the staff was very pleasant and everyone smiled and was very helpful. They made you feel at home.

Our group of friends visited Gettysburg last week. We did our homework and chose an inn carefully. The glowing comments by other guests were not overstated--this place is outstanding in every way. I was greeted by Lee, a lovely young woman who was polite, articulate, and professional. She showed me to my room, a beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, and very quiet room with a porch overlooking the lovely garden. The brick wall ouside the room bear scars and bullet holes from the battles. Breakfast was delicious; tea and coffee were available 24 hours in the parlor, and homemade cookies and cake was offered every afternoon. A highlight of my stay was having dinner with Lee. When she learned that my friends wouldn't arrive until the following day, she invited me to join her at a nearby restaurant. I felt very welcomed. Thanks to all at the lovely Brickhouse Inn. I will return.

This was our third trip to Gettysburg within the past 5 years and all three times we have stayed at the Brickhouse Inn. Tessa and Brian are warm and friendly and made us right at home. The atmosphere is perfect for the time period of the Civil War and brings history to life. This is always the first place we contact when planning a trip to Gettysburg. The breakfast are fantastic and we are never disappointed. I recommend highly.

The Brickhouse Inn was everything you look for in a B & B. Wonderful knowledgeable hosts who helped us navigate the area, make suggestions and reservations and provided top notch service and breakfast to get us on our way. We cannot wait to return for another visit.

In Gettysburg, there's no better way to enjoy the area than to stay at a B&B, and stay we did - 5 days. We are the honeymooners, and not to be mistaken with the "Kramdens". After plenty of discussion about where to go and stay for our honeymoon, we decided to descend on Gettysburg. We scoured the internet to determine which of the B&B's would be the best option for us and came across The Brickhouse Inn. The reviews we read, and not to mention the website, were convincing enough for us. We were not disappointed. We decided to stay in the Texas Room, which is on the front of the Welty House. There's no better way to experience the history of Gettysburg than to stay in a place that stood in the line of fire during the Battle. The Welty House still bears the scars of war on its exterior. The service was outstanding. Prior to our arrival, we were allowed the option of choosing which seating we would prefer for our breakfast. Breakfast did not disappoint, and the staff attentive. One does not leave the table hungry, unless by choice. We would recommend the Shoofly Pie, which is a wonderful way to end breakfast. We would also recommend enjoying one or more of the special add-on packages. They do not disappoint. If you are planning a surprise for your special someone, the staff takes great pains to ensure that it is a surprise. Finally, we found the staff to be extremely helpful and welcome to questions and comments. We recommend The Brickhouse Inn and look forward to our return someday in the future.

This is a wonderful place to stay, a friendly historic bed and breakfast. They made the reservation for our guided tour of the battlefield, which was one less thing for us to arrange and the guide was everything we would want. Martha Hughes

We spent two lovely nights at the Brickhouse Inn. The gardens are just lovely, and we were fortunate to chose a room that opened to the back porch/patio and also to the front porch. The room was very clean and furnished with wonderful antiques and a fun claw-foot tub. We were able to dine on the patio at breakfast with our friends and were served with a smile. It was a wonderful weekend - we will be back for sure!

Every year on the way to the beach we drive past Gettysburg and my poor husband always comments that he would like to stop there some time on the way back and explore Gettysburg. He is always met with "NO, NO, NO", from other family members. So this year, I told him for a retirement present we were going to Gettysburg for an entire weekend, just the two of us, and he could do whatever he wanted, and explore battlefields to his hearts content. The Brickhouse Inn exceeded our expectations. Wonderful location, we could walk to so many things, very clean and most comfortable beds. Delicious breakfast and cookies and drinks were an added afternoon treat. The weather did not cooperate and we didn't get to enjoy the garden's like we hoped we would, but that was out of Tess's control. We will recommend this inn to all of our friends and hope to stay again in the future when we can enjoy their beautiful outdoor gardens.

Our stay at the Brickhouse was The Best. The staff was friendly and could not do Enough for us. We stayed in the Kentucky suite and the room could not be any nicer. The Inn is in a great location with many restaurants and shops in walking distance. The food was excellent and the gardens were beautiful. We are planning to return every year for our anniversary .

My husband and I live in the DC area and wanted a quick getaway without the children :) The Brickhouse Inn was perfect!! It was beautiful and immaculate and we were greated warmly when we checked in by Lee she gave suggestions about where to eat for dinner and what to do in town my only complaint is that we only stayed one night!! The breakfast was delicious and Friday evening there were fresh baked cookies and spice cake and we sat out in the beautiful garden and had a lovely evening cannot say enough good things about the brickhouse inn we will definately be back to stay longer!!!!

For the 1st time visiting Gettysburg we had a very enjoyable time made more special by staying at The Brickhouse Inn. The owners were always happy to help with everthing we wanted to know and places to visit. the breakfasts were awesome, the staff very friendly and helpfull. We cannot wait to come back next year. Thank You for the great time Sally and Benny Bender

I recently stayed again at the Brickhouse Inn and as soon as I entered the back gardens I had the feeling of being home. I had forgotten how charming and peaceful the gardens are...a place of refuge after a busy day. Brian and Tessa have furnished the inn with comfortablility without sacrificing novelty and the historical setting. I stayed in the Virginia Room which was perfect for one or two adults --cozy without being crowded. The proximity of the inn to downtown as well as to the Battlefield is also an added plus. Every time I enter or exit through the wrought iron gate in front of the inn, I feel as though I'm traveling back to the 1800's...but without the hardships. I will always choose the Brickhouse Inn as my first for lodging when visiting the area. I wish Brian and Tessa and all the kind staff much continued success. Jackie Beattie Long Island, NY

The rooms were expertly decorated, extremely clean and neat, the gardens beautifully maintained and the porches and the rocking chairs very inviting. The breakfasts and afternoon refreshments wonderful!! The Inn is centrally located and a very easy walk/commute to all the local attractions. Tessa & Brian were a wealth of information and assistance! We ate at the Dobbins House, The Pub downtown Chambersburg Square and Mama Ventura's. The food was good, atmosphere particularly good at the Dobbins House. The only problem was that our stay could have been longer!! What a treat; hope to return sometime soon! Mary, NC

We came to the Brickhouse for our honeymoon and couldnt have asked for a better place to start and end the day. Brain, Tessa and the entire staff were extremely nice and welcoming. The location is also within walking distance of anywhere you might want to check out. Breakfast in the morning was great also. Definitely coming back and would recommend to anyone heading to the area!

My husband and I stayed in the Georgia Room with a balcony over looking an amazing garden.The room was sparkling clean and the bed was sooo comfortable. We had the best breakfast on the patio and planned our day.Tessa and Brian were always there to help with suggestions of places to visit.Dinner at the Dobbin House, a Ghost Tour with Miss Betty, a horse back tour of the battlefields with General Lee and a Victorian photo were the highlights of our trip to Gettysburg. We hope to return soon.

My wife and I are completely satisfied and happy with everything about our stay at the Brickhouse Inn. Not only were Brian and Tessa very polite but all of our reservations were already made and in place when we arrived to the different venues that we selected to go to and attend. This was our first experience with an Inn and we will DEFINATELY be coming back. From the first class breakfast on the patio to our last goodbye we are completely satisfied and will miss the Brickhouse Inn until our next arrival!!!

This is our 2nd time there and we love it! The rooms are immaculate, perfectly decorated, breakfast is so special. We love sitting on the porch at night with your home cooked cookies and lemonade. What a great time, we will be back. Dawn Pearce

My wife and I discovered the Brickhouse Inn shortly after it initially opened for business and greatly enjoyed our nearly annual visits. We were unnecessarily cautious when we were informed that the business changed hands. Over the past years we have come to enjoy our stays even more with the consistency of service, cleanliness, and kinds words from Tessa, Brian and staff. We have provided family members with gift certificates to stay and we both look forward to continued visits to the Brickhouse and friends.

My husband Tommy and I stayed the last three days of our honeymoon at the Brickhouse Inn and had a wonderful time. Tess and Brian...the whole staff...are absolutely wonderful! The breakfast was great and the room was so clean and comfortable. We cannot wait to go back next year.

My Wife and I were very pleased with our stay, the Illinois room was wonderful, and every breakfast was outstanding. We will stay there on our next visit.

We stayed recently at the Brickhouse Inn and found it to be an excellent choice for our first visit to Gettysburg. Tessa and Brian were great hosts. The breakfast was different every morning and was superbly prepared. The gardens were beautiful and well maintained. We stayed in the North Carolina Room and it was lovely, spacious and very clean. The public areas were wonderfully appointed with period furnishings, paintings and maps. Brian was very knowledgeable about the Gettysburg Battlefield and local spots. We recommend the Brickhouse Inn very highly!

My husband and I don't travel a lot, but when we do, it's important to have the right accommodations. The Brick House Inn was an excellent place to stay. It was very clean and comfortable. The breakfasts were a complete meal! The hosts were very friendly and helpful. The grounds well maintained and a pleasure to relax in. It was within walking distance to a lot of places and activities. We definitely would stay there again and highly recommend it to those who like a more intimate, quiet place to stay. The only deficit was being on a main road, the motorcycle traffic was loud if you're not used to city noises.
5 on July 28, 2011
We brought our bicycles and left our car in the inn's parking place during our stay. The location is ideal - there are lots of shops and restaurants within a few blocks. Gettysburg is such a wonderful little town - so much to see at the national park and do downtown. The cemetary is a block away and the natl park visitor's center a short ride away, on the road where the inn is located. The breakfasts were worth 5 stars. And there was iced tea, water, hot coffee and tea, cookies and cake available all day in the dining room. The room was perfect, all the nice touches and comforts. The bathroom looked like it had never been used. Plush linens. All the best. The backyard and patio, where we ate breakfast is shaded, surrounded by beautiful shrubs and flowers, a bubbling brook, so peaceful and beautiful. I can't imagine a nicer place to vacation. Cathy Becker and Tim Birney, Harrisburg PA.
5 on July 23, 2011
This inn is impeccably maintained, the location is perfect since you can easily walk to town as well as to the shops and attractions on Steinwehr and Baltimore streets, the innkeepers are fabulous, and the breakfasts they served each morning on the outdoor patio were wonderful (as were the freshly baked cookies and cakes in the afternoon). There is also a beautiful secluded shaded lawn behind the inn with a fishpond, stream and waterfall, and comfortable adirondack style wood chairs for relaxing. The entire experience was fabulous and i'd highly recommend it!

We have been to Gettysburg many times, but this was our first experience staying at the Brickhouse Inn. We were very pleased with all aspects of our stay and our accommodations. We were in the Carriage House and found it very quiet and private. The meals were out of this world delicious! All of the people were friendly, helpful, and most gracious. Thank you for a wonderful stay. We definitely will return here.

My wife and I enjoyed a 4 night stay at the Brickhouse inn. Tess and Brian along with the rst of the staff were great. Brian helped us book all the tours and even arraigned a private tour guide, the guide cost $50.00 but it was money well spent getting a private guide to take us around the battlefield. We will definitely go back again.

The Brickhouse Inn is a fantastic place to stay while in Gettysburg. The Inn itself sets the stage for the historic journey of revisiting one of our Country's great Civil War battlefields. The Innkeepers have tastefully decorated the rooms in keeping with the historic era, while providing all of the amenities desirable today. The rooms, patios and gardens are comfortable and provide a quiet, tranquil atmosphere... all surrounded by beautiful flowers and trees. The food and snacks at the Inn were delicious. We were given excellent advice on where to dine and what sites to see....and, they offered to make arrangments for anything we wanted to do and see. We have stayed at many bed & breakfasts over the years and the Brickhouse Inn is definitely one of the best. We definitely recommend it and plan to visit again.

Our 3 grown children purchased a stay for us at the Brickhouse Inn for our anniversary. What a treat! The inn is beautiful, as is the outdoor dining area and surrounding gardens. This is a historical building - the room we stayed in still had bullet holes outside on the balcony area. The rooms are comfy, clean and welcoming. We sat out on our 2nd floor balcony in the evenings, enjoying the chocolate strawberries and wine that we were also gifted with. Breakfasts are SOOO good! We ate outdoors on the patio with "our neighbors". Parking is off street. The location couldn't be any better - within walking distance of the town attractions and close enough to the bus tours and museums that you can walk there too. I would definitely recommend staying here for a special getaway!

My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's over the years. The Brickhouse Inn rates with the best. Why? Because the room we stayed in was all we expected. Because Brian and Tess are personable and genuine hosts. Because it's location puts you in the center of things. Because the setting in the backyard is simply special. There's more ... but you get the picture.
5 on June 09, 2011
The Brickhouse Inn exceeded our expectations in every way. This B & B is run with the professionalism and attention to detail that you would expect from a 5 star boutique hotel but has maintained all the warmth and hospitality you would expect from a Bed and Breakfast. The rooms are beautifully appointed but also function well: enough light to read by, lights that dim, ceiling fans, air conditioning, television, Wifi, etc. all without depleting the charm of the tasteful antique furnishings. The breakfasts are interesting, generous and elegantly served in a casual atmosphere. The Innkeepers are also only too happy to help with organising tours, guides, dinner reservations and anything that you might require during your stay. We stayed at many B & B's in many states on our trip and the Brickhouse Inn rated number one with us.

This was our second stay at the Brickhouse Inn and I will not stay anywhere else when visiting Gettysburg. Brian and Tess are so welcoming and pleasant you will feel right at home. The rooms are always clean and the garden in back is beautiful and well kept. It is nice to sit at any one of the numerous tables in the garden in the afternoon or evening to enjoy a glass of wine and just relax. The garden is well light at night. I have a food allergy and Tess always accommodates my needs with a breakfast that I can eat. The Inn is located at a perfect place in town where everything except the Visitors Center Museum is within walking distance. Give this place a try and you will be glad you did. I would give more than 5 stars if I could. Randy & Annmarie Danielsville PA

My husband and I went for a short getaway and were just delighted by our accomodations. The house is historically decorated and has beautiful gardens. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the private balcony sipping tea in the evenings. The breakfasts were very good and the afternoon sweets hit the spot after touring the areas sights. The hosts were friendly and accommodating. We are very likely to return in the future.

Our son has taken an interest in the battles of the Civil War, so our family decided to make a trip to Gettysburg. What a memorable experience to spend a night at the Brickhouse Inn and know we were sleeping in a house that was there during the Civil War! The Inn is perfectly situated in downtown Gettysburg and is walking distance to the Cemetary and numerous other attractions as well as restaurants for dinner. The owners and staff are wonderful, breakfast was scrumptious, and the gardens are beautiful. If you are travelling to Gettysburg, you must spend a night at The Brickhouse Inn!

This has been my 4th stay here at the Brickhouse (4-29 to 5-1 2011) and as always it was wonderful! Our host & hostess are the sweetest people and always asking if everything is alright and do we need anything. The rooms are impecably kept and breakfast is always delicious. It's my only choice for a B&B in Gettysburg, it's walking distance to just about everything. My usband & I have been coming to Gettysburg for about 7 years now and we have stayed at other B&B's but have not had the same experiance as we do here. We will definatly be coming back again & again!!

We stayed in the main house of the Brickhouse Inn in Gettysburg during the Spring Break in March. What a wonderful surprise! The hosts - Tessa & Brian were so welcoming, friendly, informative and helpful. The attention to detail was truly great, the breakfasts were excellent, the location very central and the rooms were tastefully decorated. It was such a pleasure after a chilly day of sightseeing to return to this historical Inn to find hot coffee & homemade cookies awaiting us in the beautiful dining area! We will definitely return to the Brickhouse Inn in the future. Thank you to our wonderful hosts for a memorable stay. SB

This was our first B&B experience. The Brickhouse Inn is the perfect location to stay when visiting Gettysburg. The central location makes it a pefect place to walk and explore the town. Rooms are very clean and have everything you need. It takes you back to a past time, but gives you all of the amenities of a modern hotel. Brian, Tessa, and the staff do everything they can to make your experience memorable. They help with tour info, restaurants options, and any other questions or requests you may have. They cook a wonderful breakfast each day. Also, there is always a snack and beverage available for you. Whether you are in town for sight seeing or just getting away and want to relax on the porch or patio, this is the perfect place to stay. I cant say enough positive things about The Brickhouse. I highly recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area. Marc and Julie Newark, DE

Brian and Tessa are gracious host that go above and beyond to make sure you are well cared for. What a wonderful place to relax and rejuvinate after traveling eleven hours. We prefer this to a hotel any day! With the personal care and attention we will be back as soon as we can. Thank you!

This was a weekend suprise birthday getaway for my husband and our first B&B experience. WOW! They, (Brian, Tess, staff), somehow make each guest feel like they're the only guest in the place! It was beautiful, clean, and the food was out of this world! I've never suprised my husband as well as I did this time and I can't take any of the credit, except by booking the Brickhouse Inn. Thanks again!

Our first trip to Gettysburg was fabulous mainly due to The Brickhouse. We were greeted by Brian and immediately knew we made a great choice. He was very proper, yet warm, and invited us to put our bags down so we could enjoy some fresh afternoon baked goodies. We stayed in the North Carolina suite, which had a bedroom, private bath, sitting room with rocker and a day bed, and also our own balcony overlooking the gardens. It was very nice to have all that space to relax. The room was immaculate, and the bed very comfy. Breakfasts were phenomenal with a fruit start, main course, AND a dessert! I've never had a dessert for breakfast but it was a sweet ending to the meal. The Inn was very helpful in arranging a private guide for a tour of the battlefield and also a ghost tour. The location is close to the visitor center, restaurants, the circle with shopping, and the battlefield. We walked to many places. We loved everything about the Brickhouse and would definitely stay there again if we make it back to Gettysburg.

As frequent patrons of B&Bs, my wife and I were not disappointed with the Brickhouse Inn. The Inn consists of two beautiful brick buildings perched close to the edge of the battlefield and conveniently located near shopping and dining. Had the weather been a bit warmer, most of the town of Gettysburg would have been readily accessible by walking. We stayed in the Kentucky Suite in the older of the two buildings that was present during the battle. Our room was quite large, with a bedroom and a separate sitting room with wing back chairs, both with faux wood stove fireplaces. The bathroom was also spacious, complete with a large claw foot bath tub. Off of the bathroom was a private balcony with rocking chairs, although it was a bit too cold during our trip to enjoy that space. The exterior wall of the balcony bore the scars of bullet holes from close fighting during the battle of Gettysburg, which was a really interesting historical connection. The breakfasts were also excellent, with a terrific variety. Each breakfast was three courses, including a choice of dessert, which we have never seen at a B&B. In the afternoons, there were fresh baked cookies and cakes served with coffee or tea in the dining room as well. Brian and Tessa, the Innkeepers were very gracious and helpful with recommendations on dining and making reservations for tours or meals. The grounds of the property were also very well maintained, including a waterfall, pond and large outdoor seating areas. Given that we stayed at the end of March, we didn't get to see the full effect of the property, but the gardeners were preparing for spring flowers, which must be incredible. Overall, this was one of the best B&Bs that we have ever stayed in. We would absolutely come back and would recommend it to anyone.

My daughter and I recently had the wonderful opportunity to visit this delightful B&B while on an overnight visit to Gettysburg. Brian and Tessa, the owners of the Inn, are meticulous when it comes to details from the atmosphere of the main Inn to the individual decor of the guest rooms. Everything is so clean, neat and tastefully done. We stayed in the Texas Room and I must admit the canopy bed was as big as the state of Texas; we even needed a stool to get into the bed! Brian was extremely knowledgeable about local venues to visit and especially great places to eat. He recommended the Dobbins House, we followed his suggestion, he made an immediate reservation and, needless to say, we had a superb meal there. Tessa's breakfast the next morning was another delightful way to start a bright, new day. We feasted on a selection of teas, juice and coffee along with delicious melons topped with rich yogurt, quiche, sausage, muffins and, with little room left for any more, ended our breakfast with shoe-fly pie and a lemon tart. Talk about being satisfied! We hated to leave such a wonderful stay at the Brickhouse Inn and my daughter and I are awaiting another return in the not too distant future! Deborah and Eliza Mc.

Charming historical b&b with a great location. Breakfast was delicious and the hosts very helpful. The personal guide that Brian set up for us was a highlight, helping us to understand the battle at a reasonable price. Linens were the best I've ever slept on away from home.

We had an outstanding stay at the Brickhouse Inn over the weekend of Feb. 26/27. Our hosts were very pleasant to deal with and were extremely helpful and cordial. The Inn itself is beautiful, spotless and very comfortable. I only wish we had been able to stay there in warmer weather, as the outside sitting arrea and garden looks very inviting. well done!

Could not say anything didn't exceed our expectations. The house was gorgeous, done in beautiful taste and exceptionally clean and cozy. I felt we were the only ones staying there when we were in our suite - could not hear anyone else even though the place was very full. My husband said they were the nicest people at any bed & breakfast we've stayed at - and we've stayed at alot! The breakfasts were delicious and they even catered to our 11 yr old, who would rather not have anything gourmet. There's also so much to do in Gettysburg, even in Feb., which is off season. Skiing & tubing is 20 min. away and of course all the history! Some of the museums were closed but there was still so much to do and no crowds! Would stay at the Brickhouse again in a minute.

I travel to Gettysburg 8-12 times a year and I have stayed in just about every Bed and Breakfast in the borough. The Brickhouse Inn is without rival in terms of comfort, hosptiality, well appointed rooms, amenities and charm. It's central location to the battlefield as well as the town of Gettysburg is excellent. The Welty House, part of the Brickhouse Inn's room choices, played a role in the battle and also appears in the now famous photo of the processional up the Baltimore Pike just prior to Lincoln's Gettysburg Address. Tessa and Brian are superb hosts and a delight to converse with. I will be staying at the Brickhouse much more frequently on future visits to Gettsyburg. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to weekend in Gettysburg and stay no where else but the Brickhouse Inn.

My Wife and I stayed at the Brickhouse Inn for Valentine's weekend which was also her Birthday weekend and had a fantastic time. Brian and Tessa were very gracious host and went out of their way to ensure everything was perfect for each guest. Breakfast was delicious and filling. Brian and Tessa's dining recommendations were spot on. The first night we just wanted something easy and quick, so Tessa recommended Tommy's Pizza which had to be some of the best Pizza we had ever eaten. Brian had made reservations for us at The Dobbins House for Sunday evening and it was outstanding the food was well prepared and the ambiance was perfect for Valentines Day. We will be going back to the Brickhouse Inn

We had a marvelous stay with Brian and Tessa. From late changes to our room due to our daughter coming with us after booking a room for just us, to calling my cell when the housekeeper found a camera we forgot after we had checked out in a hurry to catch us before we left the area, the service has been amazing. The breakfast was incredibly delicious, as was the carrot cake and cookies waiting for us in the kitchen after our arrival - yum! The room was very comfortable and was impeccably clean - you could soak up the history just by standing inside and letting the antique decorations and architecture mesmerize you back in time. Gettysburg itself is a must see destination for all Americans to truly understand the impact of what happened there on today's world. There are a number of excellent restaurants and shops right within walking distance, but a short drive will also take you to even more interesting places including a surprisingly bargain laden outlets. A short walk will put you right on the battlefield, complete with statues and cannons to help your mind jump right into the action. For the ghost hunters or curious out there, I can't think of a better place to go for experiencing the supernatural - and that's all I'm going to say, other than to be sure you try out some of the ghost tours offered - they are truly marvelous. This B&B truly complements the spirit of the amazing town of Gettysburg, and should be considered as important as part of the overall experience as the educational battleground bus tour. You will be very pleased with your accommodations and hospitality offered before and after a busy day experiencing everything Gettysburg has to offer.

The stay at the Birckhouse was very pleasant. We stayed two nights in the NC Suite... very nice, very clean, private bathroom was immaculate. The room was cleaned and towels changed after the first night. The food, however was just OK. The first morning was wonderful... apple pancakes. However, the second day was hit-or-miss... warm egg salad on a toasted English muffin. I hate egg salad, and by the time they never asked if I wanted something else... they just cleared my plate away with everything still on it. They also put cheese on my wife's dish... they asked at check-in if any one had any dietary restrictions, and she told them she is lactose intolerant. No big deal. All-in-all, the stay was great. We would absolutely stay there again.... we'll just be sure to check the little white board with the next day's breakfast menu. Coffee, teas, and cookies stay out all night, though, and you get a three course breakfast... so you won't go hungry, even if the main course isn't appetizing.

This was a very romantic anniversary get away for my husband and I. The room was beautiful, clean and comfortable. The atmosphere of the Bed and Breakfast was warm and inviting. The staff and their service was wonderful. The breakfast was delightful. Lovely experience!

I would highly recommend Brickhouse to anyone! I consider the Inn an excellent combination of historic and modern; great for experiencing the atmosphere of Gettysburg without the stuffiness/"antique shop" feel of some other Bed and Breakfasts. The location is absolutely unbeatable for visiting the Battlefield. We stayed in the Carriage House and the quality of workmanship in the construction was remarkable. The same applies to the Inn as a whole. Breakfast was delicious, exceptionally well prepared and presented, and of considerable portion size. Brian and Tessa are superior hosts (who doesn't love listening to UK accents!) and no detail was left unattended. A uniquely professional operation...and an excellent value to boot. We will be back.
4.8 on December 23, 2010
It was a peaceful and quiet stay. The hosts/owners were very personable and caring. They took care of us right away. The food was quite good. We enjoyed our stay very much and will seriously consider a return visit when we go to Gettysburg again.

This B&B was excellent -- from the hospitality to the decor to the breakfast. I hope to return someday.

Very attentive and accommodating innkeeper. Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay in Gettysburg.
5 on December 06, 2010
We were fortunate to stay at the finest B&B in Gettysburg. Brian & Tessa make you feel "at home." The inn is centrally located -- we enjoyed walking to all attractions including the battlefields. We will stay here again.

As long time students of the battle we expected Gettysburg to be a valuable trip, but what we didn't expect was the additional benefit of The Brickhouse Inn. We stayed seven nights and found the breakfasts and the visits with other guests to be one of the highlights of the trip. Our many trips to the battlefield were inspirational and all that we had hoped for, but we enjoyed coming home to the Inn throughout the day for rest and the many pleasantries it offered. We particularly enjoyed the afternoon teas (and treats) along with visits with other guests, and with our hosts, Tessa and Brian. The home sits on Baltimore Pike which saw much of the battle flow up and down the street, the cemetery, and nearby Culp's Hill. We were able to walk to all of these places from the home, and the old town of Gettysburg is equally convenient. The rooms were well-maintained and very clean. The garden was lovely. Even though we are from California, we look forward to another stay at the inn again on a future trip.

This inn has it all, history, hospitality, and convenience. Wonderful rooms & comfortable beds. We highly recommend.
4.6 on November 23, 2010
We have visited Gettysburg many times, but have never stayed in such style. We have always wanted to stay at the Brickhouse Inn, but have never had the opportunity until now. The inn was beautiful, the rooms were comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious, and most importantly the innkeepers were most hospitable. They made us feel right at home. We are looking forward to staying there again next year.
4.6 on November 23, 2010
Our 4th stay here for the annual Remembrance Day Ceremonies. This B & B is spotless, the staff works tirelessly and is friendly, the breakfasts are served hot and are a culinary treat. The place is quiet and perfectly located walking distance to the best food and the battlefield. I wish I could stay for Christmas ! The heat in the rooms is adjustable as well, nice to be able to take the chill off. We enjoyed the afternoon treats with warm cider as well ! 5 stars.

We had a great experience staying at the Brickhouse Inn in Gettysburg, PA. This Inn is conveniently located to the the Battlefield, the Visitors Center and the town with its shops and restaurants. The rooms were immaculate, the breakfasts were well prepared, the Inkeepers were very helpful and friendly - It's hard to imagine anything better in this price range. We will definitely go back when we were travelling in that area. We highly recommend this B&B!

The Brickhouse Inn was a wonderful place to stay while visiting Gettysburg! The rooms were clean & comfortable. Breakfast was amazing & the staff were very friendly. We would stay again!

We have stayed at the Brickhouse Inn twice - we loved it so much that we brought our aunt & uncle with us the second time. Highly recommended. Beautifully decorated rooms, delicious breakfasts and within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. I especially loved the desserts that were available during the day along with coffee and tea. Thank you Tessa and Brian!

This was our second trip to Gettysburg and it was better than the last. The Brickhouse Inn was awesome. It was absolutely beautiful!! The garden and patio area in the back yard were amazing. We went with three other couples and we were all 100% satisfied. The Texas room was so romantic, we loved the high bed! Breakfast was great, the staff was very friendly, we will definitely stay here again!

The Brickhouse Inn is fabulous! A beautiful house, wonderful food and lovely landscaping. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts on the patio and I loved the water garden in the back. The inn is very clean and homey. Be sure to enjoy a cookie in the afternoon. Brian and Tessa are a great source of info for what to see in Gettysburg. They and the Brickhouse are wonderful.

The Brickhouse Inn is lovely. It's impeccably clean and tastefully furnished. Located in the heart of the historical section of Gettysburg, we could walk to many of the sights and shopping. The garden landscape was beautiful and inviting as we enjoyed relaxing on a lovely summer evening. Our hosts, Brian and Tessa, were so attentive and nice and do their own cooking each morning for breakfast. You won't find a buffet here - delicious served food and something different each morning. It was really wonderful. We had never been to Gettysburg before, so we took advantage of the option to have Brian arrange tours for us. He did a wonderful job and we had a hassle free weekend.
5 on July 13, 2010
As always Brian and Tessa are excellent hosts and the staff is very warm and friendly. If you needed anything all were willing to be sure to help. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are just lovely with the beautiful flowers and the pond--it is so peaceful to sit there at any time of the day or night. The breakfasts are delicious and filling. We have stayed here many times in the past and enjoyed every moment. I would recommend the Brickhouse Inn.
4.2 on July 13, 2010
We arrived on Friday, 07/09/10 and were welcomed by Brian. He showed us to our rooms and gave us general information about the Inn and places to visit and/or eat during our stay. We stayed in the Ohio Room and it was so quaint. Loved the decor of the room. We stayed two nights. Breakfasts were wonderful .. fresh fruit, main course, desserts. Sat. it rained so we ate inside, but Sunday we were able to eat on the back porch surrounded by the beautiful gardens. It was one of the nicest B&B's we've ever stayed it. Sitting outside in the garden in the evening sipping wine was so relaxing. We didn't want to leave. We'll go back again, soon I hope.
5 on July 12, 2010
We selected the Brickhouse in in Gettysburg, PA because of the location and found it to be an unexpected delight in all the other ratings areas. It was immacuately clean, hosts Tessa & Brian were more than accommodating in helping us book tours and restaurant reservations, the room we had was in the Welty house and provided much privacy and quiet, and the breakfasts at the Brickhouse were absolutely incredible 3-4 course meals. We hit the B&B jackpot on the first try and I can honestly tell you we would never consider staying anywhere else but the Brickhouse Inn while in Gettysburg, PA. We highly recommend it! Sally & Bob Reinertson

My husband and I stayed in a B&B for the first time this time. We were married in Gettysburg PA last year and went back for our 1st anniversary. We discussed to stay at the Brickhouse B&B. What a wonderful decision we made. The innkeepers, Tessa & Brian are delightful, charming and make you feel welcomed. The inn itself is charming, clean, convenient to shops, dining and the town in general. We will definitely be going back. Thank you Tessa & Brian for making our 1st our anniversary special.
5 on July 07, 2010
We had a wonderful stay and would recommend it to our family and friends. The gardens are beautiful and since the weather permitted we were able to have breakfast outside and make some new friends. The location was perfect. Thanks to our gracious hosts for a great stay.
5 on July 06, 2010
My husband and I have been staying at the Brickhouse Inn for over 13 years several times a year. The Innkeeper, Tess and Brian are delightful and go out the way to make you feel welcome. Their staff is ready to lend a hand and will do any thing for you from dinner reservations to battlefield tours. As the guest you are made to feel that you are the most important guest staying at the Inn.
4.4 on July 05, 2010
The outside gardens were beautiful and a nice cool place to relax with a complementary glass of iced tea after a day of touring Gettysburg.
5 on June 28, 2010
This bed and breakfast is really well located (you can walk to just about everywhere), the gardens and grounds are beautiful and the rooms are very nice. Breakfast was served in the garden one morning and inside due to rain the next day. The shoo-fly pie was delicious. We stayed in the Alabama room and the only improvement we would make is to add a light on both sides of the bed for us in bed readers. We would definitely stay there again and loved our short vacation in Gettysburg.
5 on June 27, 2010
I booked this Inn as a special gift to my husband for Father's Day 2010. The Inn exceeded my every expectation. The Innkeepers are absolutely delightful and made us feel as if we were at home. The room was cozy and a welcome sight after full days of sightseeing. I would highly recommend this Inn to anyone interested in visiting Gettysburg. The location is ideal for getting to all of the local sites (we hardly moved our car once we arrived). You are in walking distance to everything wonderful (restaurants, shops, cyclorama, and National Military Park). Overall - an excellent decision if you're thinking of booking. We will definitely return.

Staying at the Brickhouse will make it tough to stay anywhere else in Gettysburg!!

Tessa and Brian do a fantastic job hosting you in this wonderful bed and breakfast. The rooms are very nice, clean and so comfortable for relaxing. The breakfasts are 5 star and made with herbs from the garden...which by the way...the garden is breath taking and a great place to read a book or just relax after a long day! Don't miss your chance to stay at this lovely B&B!

Really appreciated Brian making sightseeing and eating arrangements. We didnt' waste time dithering about. Where to go, what to see, dinner, etc.
5 on May 20, 2010
This happened to be my wife and I's first Bed and Breafast experience and no way will it be our last. We emailed Brian a few days before we were to arrive and asked if we could get some of the tickets from our package that we also ordered he was more than happy to do this. The room was amazing and the foos was great also. Brian and Tessa went out of thier wat to make sure everyon had a great stay. they reccomened thing for us to do places to eat, along with making our reservations for dinner 2 of the nights we were there. My wife and I would reccomend "The Ultimate Gettysburg Package" if you have never done it. we had a great time and look forward to returning in the future.
5 on May 14, 2010
We stayed 3 nights at the Brickhouse Inn and didn't want to leave. The house is everything you expect from a bed and breakfast and so much more. Every room is immaculate, the furnishings are beautiful and the food is just delicious. Brian and Tessa are terrific innkeepers and want to make sure that their guests are making the most of their visits by seeing the very best of everything in Gettysburg. We loved the location of the inn. We were able to walk to many of the local shops, restuarants and historical sites. We definitely want to stay here again and visit Lancaster, Hersey and DC!
5 on May 07, 2010
Every stay at a B&B has exceeded the past experience and this was the best yet! There was not a thing that could have been any nicer - the wonderful hospitality, exquisite food, superbly comfortable rooms, and beautiful surroundings - all to make this a truly memorable weekend!
5 on May 03, 2010
My husband and I spent this weekend at the Brickhouse Inn and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Brian and Tessa are the most hospitable hosts and go out of their way to make guests' visits special. We were extremely impressed with how beautiful the B&B was, its central location, and how great the food and service were. Breakfast was served on the patio, a delicious meal with table service and special details. We were celebrating my parents' 40th anniversary and we asked them for a lot of assistance in helping us to make it a surprise, including hiding a cake and making separate reservations for dinner and a ghost tour for an extra guest, my brother, who joined us late as a surprise to my parents, while keeping it a secret from my parents, who made the original reservations. They also kept a cake for us that we brought, and provided everything we needed to serve the cake out on the patio for my parents. They were the most accommodating and gracious hosts, and we could not have asked for a better experience! We highly recommend the Brickhouse for anyone visiting Gettysburg!
5 on May 02, 2010
My wife Lynn and I had stayed at the Brickhouse on our first anniversary in 1995. We wondered whether it would be the same when we stayed in February of this year. Well it wasn't. It was much better! Brian and Tessa were fantastic and very helpful. The room was wonderful and the food spectacular. We hope to return soon.
5 on April 29, 2010
We had soured on B&B's, but because of our stay at Brickhouse, B&B's are back on our list of options when we travel. The service, location, and historical connection to the Gettysburg experience were ideal.
5 on April 20, 2010
The entire weekend was one to remember. Not only were Brian and Tessa wonderful, the rest of the staff were also a pleasure to deal with. The rooms were cozy and the breakfast was delicious. We will visit again!
5 on April 14, 2010
The best Inn during our East Coast visit. Brian and Tessa could not do enough for us; they were great. Breakfast was delicious, inn immaculate. A must for anyone visiting Gettysburg.
5 on April 10, 2010
We loved the Brickhouse Inn in Gettysburg. Brian and Tessa were welcoming and friendly. They were so helpful in arranging a tour of the battlefield for us, and also for giving us great recommendations for restaurants. The breakfast was wonderful and served in a beautiful dining room. Our room was clean and comfortable. I recommend this inn highly.
5 on March 30, 2010
Lovely owners and fabulous breakfast!! Can't wait to visit again! We are keeping in touch with the friends we met there!!

This stay was our eighth at The Brickhouse. We recommend it to all our friends who are coming to Gettysburg. The staff and management are like family and you feel like you are at home here. David & Lindetta Williams, Stephens City, VA

My husband and I chose the Brickhouse from an excellent review in Select Registry and we were very glad that we did. From our warm greeting at arrival to Brian helping us carry luggage to the car when we left, we were pampered throughout our stay. The location is perfect for walking to all the sites and restaurants. From our gracious bay window on the third floor (South Carolina room) we could just imagine the intensity of the Battle at Gettysburg happening all around us. Evidence of the impact of mini balls and cannon fire can be seen on the exterior wall of the house next door which is also part of the Brickhouse property. We also could imagine Lincoln walking past the inn on the street just below on his way to deliver the Gettysburg Address. A picture of this event is featured in the parlor and it clearly shows the Brickhouse annex building. Our room was elegant and comfortable, and spotlessly clean. The housekeeping staff even re-made the bed after I had made it before we left the inn for the day. On a very special note, Brian and Tess volunteered to serve us breakfast an hour before the other guests so we would be on time for a family funeral. That is service extraordinaire! The breakfast food was delicious and presented on beautiful dinnerware. We appreciated the hot tea, coffee and cookies in the afternoon. We visited in the winter and look forward to another visit in warmer weather when we can sit outside in the garden to enjoy breakfast. We would love to see the waterfall and koi pond that Brian built himself. We will always choose the Brickhouse Inn when we visit Gettysburg.
5 on December 23, 2009
We absolutely adored the Brickhouse! We come to Gettysburg every year and we normally stay at a different B&B, however it was booked this year. Thank God! We decided to go to the Brickhouse after reading the reviews. We will never stay any where else!!!!! I miss it!
3.8 on December 15, 2009
The breakfasts were not what we expected from a B&B. there were no selctions or options other than what we were served. I expected a selection of hot or cold food with fresh fruit and various bread, rolls, muffins. The food we were served was very good but limited.
4.6 on December 14, 2009
Beautiful well-kept B&B with a drop dead location in Gettysburg. You can walk to restaurants, shops, and historical attractions. Great innkeepers!

My husband and I decided to visit Gettysburg, PA for the first time. We decided to stay at a B&B for the first time as well. What an absolutely good time we had. What beautiful room we stayed in and the food was delicious. It was above our expectations. Cannot wait to come back!
5 on November 23, 2009
This was our first time in Gettysburg and our first time at a B & B. I would have to say that this is a very welcoming and lovely place to stay. The rooms, grounds and common areas are very nicely kept. There is many small, but thoughtful details that were also attended too, that surprised me. The location is perfect. And Tessa was very accomodating in trying to arrange for guides, reservations etc. Breakfast was also delicious. I would recommend this inn very highly. Can't go wrong on this one.
5 on November 13, 2009
The Brickhouse Inn consists of elegance, old world charm, cleanliness and polite staff, breakfast was wonderful. Very accommodating!
5 on October 31, 2009
I cannot rate this B&B highly enough. The attention to detail, the clean and spacious rooms, the excellent breakfasts - I could go on and on about what is so great about this inn. My husband and I have stayed here 4 times in the last 3 years. If you are going to Gettysburg, go to The Brickhouse Inn - you will feel as though you have been transported back in time yet enjoy all the "perks" of living in the 21st century. The inn is close to everything, and anything you'd like to do can be arranged by the innkeepers - they truly care about your stay and will do whatever they can to make sure your visit was everything you expected and more!
5 on October 27, 2009
Quite simply, the most charming and hospitable B&B in Gettysburg. The suites are a cozy haven after a day of touring. The innkeepers are friendly and very accommodating! Breakfast is sumptuous!
5 on October 20, 2009
My family and I, 6 of us total, stayed at the Brickhouse Inn October 15-18. Between the 3 couples, we rented 3 rooms for our 4 day 3 night trip to Gettysburg. My boyfriend and I have visited Gettysburg many times and have stayed at different B&B's each time. This was our first stay at the Brickhouse Inn and it will definitely not be our last. Brian and Tess were two of the nicest Inn Keepers we've met. The food was delicious each morning. Two people in our group were creatures of habit and don't like to try new foods. Unlike other B&B's we've stayed at, that won't stray from the already planned breakfast, Brian and Tess were more than happy to accommodate our two picky eaters and made regular pan cakes for them each morning. The first morning, after eating some bacon and loving it, we asked if there were any left overs and Tess threw some more in the oven for us. The next two mornings we didn't even have to ask. She always made extra bacon for us and we loved it. On Saturday, we had two local friends joining us for the day. I asked Brian if it would be a problem if they joined us for breakfast that morning and without hesitation I was told it was no problem. The rooms were very charming, clean and full of character. The entire house was so cozy and had such a warm feeling about it. We all hated to leave. My boyfriend and I are returning in July and cannot wait. Of the 6 B&B's we've stayed at, this is the only one we will be returning to for another stay. We were that impressed with the entire experience we had over the weekend. I would highly recommend the Brickhouse Inn.
5 on October 20, 2009
Great location, super innkeepers, yummy breakfast, immaculate rooms, everything you could want from a B&B!
5 on October 20, 2009
Tessa & Brian are charming hosts; you feel as if you were visiting family. The inn & rooms are cozy & clean, the breakfasts were an ultimate dining experience to remember!
5 on October 14, 2009
My wife and I just returned from our sixth visit to the Brickhouse Inn and our stay was memorable as always. Brian and Tesse are most gracious hosts and the rooms of the inn are immaculate. Breakfast is always a treat and the food is fantastic complete with the traditional shoe fly pie. The gardens of the inn are beautiful and surround the place with color. We always stay in the Welty House which was there during the Civil War and still bears the bullet scars in the brick. The battlefield is within walking distance of the inn. If you walk behind the inn near the school you can access a path leading to Culp’s Hill. We always like to take this path during the evening as being surrounded by the monuments in the solitude is truly a spiritual feeling. The rocking chairs on the porches of inn offer a relaxing spot to people watch. The rooms are furnished with antique furniture making you feel as if you have gone back in time. The Brickhouse Inn is a place where you will enjoy history and where you will always want to return.
5 on October 07, 2009
A well-maintained, clean, comfortable, beautifully deorated and landscaped facility; tasty and delectable breakfasts; entire staff helpfu, courteous and hospitable; Brian, co-owner/innkeeper, knowledgeable of area, made us feel like we were the most important people on earth, very professionally operated B&B, including arranging for guides and making restaurant reservations.
5 on October 07, 2009
The Brickhouse Inn is the place to stay if you are planning a reunion for friends or family, or just want to get away for a few days in gettysburg. the location is perfect for sight-seeing and fine dining and the owners are eager to help you make your viit memorable. the guest rooms and public areas of the inn are well furnished and immaculate and the breakfast each morning was varied and delicious!

This was our first experience at a Bed and Breakfast and the Brickhouse Inn has become the “gold standard” from which we will judge all others. From the moment we entered the gates, we were made to feel welcome and comfortable by everyone on the staff. Our bedroom was sunny, comfortable, and clean. There was a book listing local attractions, tours, and restaurants, which was up to date and useful. Tess and Brian were quite helpful with arranging guided tours and directing us to wonderful dining experiences at area restaurants. We loved the Inn’s location which was ideal for a quick walk to the town center or to view the historic battlefields of Gettysburg. Our thanks to everyone at the Brickhouse Inn.

We were very pleased with the Brickhouse Inn and Gettysburg. The host presented us with a terrific suite -- everything comfortable, including the bed and porch, etc. The breakfast was superb and our table mates were very pleasant. We would go back again.

We stayed at the Brickhouse Inn in August 2009. It was a lovely experience. The room, gardens, breakfast, staff and owners were all delightful.

Found the Brickhouse Inn thru the Gettysburg Visitors Guide. It is a beautiful old house with great personality. We were amazed how quiet the place was even with almost full capacity. We especially loved breakfast in the back gardens and spending some quiet time on the rocking chairs on the side porch. A perfect place to relax after a long hot day touring the battlefields. It is also conveniently located and we were able to walk to many attractions. Breakfast was delicious and served as a multi-course meal. We did not get the opportunity to meet Brian but Tessa was a very gracious host. We had our trip planned months in advance and only stayed 2 nights with our schedule jam packed. Next time I would let the Brickhouse make some recommendations on local attractions. Others in the house did so and were very pleased. We look forward to staying again.

I was taking my 12 year old son on a trip to Gettysburg and wanted to stay somewhere with historical value. I was extremely pleased with our room and the service. My son was excited to stay somewhere that was in the middle of the action during the Civil War. If you want a trip back in time, but with all modern conveniences then this is a perfect choice for you. The yards are spectacular as well for any nature lovers.

We have stayed here before and it feels like home. the food is very good. The owners are very welcoming. The room was comfortable and beautifully decorated. Great place!

This was our first time staying at a B&B and my husband felt like he was in his own house. We could sit on the front porch or in the parlor at night chatting with other guests. The owners asked if we had any dietary needs; they were very accomodating. The Maryland room was beautiful and the location is perfect right in the center of everything. I would highly recommend the Brickhouse Inn.

We loved staying at the Brickhouse Inn! Brian & Tessa are lovely and gracious hosts. They made us feel very much at home. Great breakfasts and convenient to many nearby shops and restaurants!!
5 on August 16, 2009
Having picked the Brickhouse Inn out of the Gettysburg visitor's website, I hoped for a pleasant stay and our three days there exceeded our expectations. The warmth and hospitality of the staff, the fluffy towels, comfortable bed and beautiful spotless rooms, the gourmet breakfasts, and mingling with the other guests was wonderful, plus there was historic Gettysburg to explore! My husband and I completely enjoyed every moment of our stay.
5 on August 07, 2009
This was my first experience at a B&B and the Brickhouse has certainly set a standard for others to meet. The hosts were friendly and gracious, there to help you if you needed it, but save you your privacy. Our room, the New England Room, was wonderful: clean, plenty of room, and very comfortable. Breakfast was a real treat out on the terrace surrounded by a beautiful garden. I look forward to staying there again!

The Brickhouse Inn in Gettysburg, PA is truly a little bit of heaven for the tired traveller. Good food, hospitality & wonderful staff make this an "A+" B&B.
5 on July 30, 2009
Brian & Tessa make you feel "welcome home", not "welcome back". Their love is felt throughout your stay. God willing, we will be back every year for many years to come.

My sister and I stayed in the Texas room in the Welty House. It was well maintained, very clean and very beautiful. Brian and Tessa, the owners, are absolutely wonderful. They remembered everyones' names and were very hands on. The rest of the staff is just as nice. The breakfasts are delicious and eating on the patio was very nice and relaxing. For anyone who wants to stay in Gettysburg at a very nice place, you must stay at the Brickhouse Inn! Not only are the rooms beautiful, but the gardens in the back are breathtaking! I can't wait to go there again!
5 on July 15, 2009
My husband is a graduate of Gettysburg College and had been coming back to Gettysburg over a 55 year period and has stayed in just about every type of accommodation there is over the years. He has never found anything more comfortable and the staff more friendly than at the Brickhouse Inn. I must say, I concur with his sentiments. the inn is our lodging of choice whenever we are in Gettysburg overnight!
5 on July 15, 2009
I would not stay anywhere else in Gettysburg! Charming inn with exceptional innkeepers. immaculate...great food...cozy rooms...beautiful gardens...wonderful breakfast...great location...affordable!

5 on July 04, 2009
Our visit to the Brickhouse Inn was a truly wonderful experience! Our innkeepers, Tess and Brian, immediately made us feel right at home; they are an amazing font of information, not only on Gettysburg, but also international travel and culture. We could have chatted for hours over a glass of wine on the back patio. There, we were surrounded by the loveliest gardens and a babbling waterfall pool, which gently cascaded down the yard! Our Alabama room in the Welty House was so comfortable and immaculate and beautifully decorated with period antiques; we slept so well, it amazed even me! The inn was in a perfect location to walk in both directions – to the battlefields and to the square, to the bookstore and interesting little shops across the street and most of the restaurants in the area. Our Battlefield tour with John Weixel was so animated and informative and just a marvelous experience. We also enjoyed the Ghost tour with Miss Betty and came out of it with many “orbs” in our photographs – spooky! We even splurged with a Massage by Ruth – such pampering! It was also so nice to chat with the other guests; they were such a wonderful and interesting group. We were sad to have to leave, but the quote, “Today we make tomorrow’s memories….” is certainly appropriate. The Brickhouse Inn will always be a part of our special memories and we plan to return one day for more adventures and relaxation – and good company!
4.6 on July 02, 2009
Can't say enough good things about the Brickhouse. The owners made our stay something wonderful. The location is perfect, within walking distance of shops, dinning, and downtown. They suggested a national park guide for a personal tour, which really brought the Gettysburg experience home. A+ all the way!!!!
5 on July 01, 2009
Brian and Tessa, owners of the Brickhouse, are excellent hosts! Rooms are beautiful, breakfast is delicious! They go out of their way to make our visit complete!
4.6 on June 26, 2009
My boyfriend and I stayed at the Brickhouse for two nights. We stayed in the North Carolina suite of the main house. This room had two rooms - one with a queen bed another room had a daybed-plus a balcony with two rockers where you could sit and look over the gardens and the street. Both breaksfasts were yummy and served in one of two dining areas with other guests. We took two tours: a ghost tour with Miss Betty and a 2 hr guided battlefield tour with George Newtown-both arranged, as well as our dinner reservations by Tessa, Brian or Melanie. We will return for their great service and location.

The inn was beautiful! Centrally located to town and Battlefield by food or car. Great innkeepers and breakfasts! Met some nice fellow travelers.
4.6 on June 16, 2009
This place is great. The Inn Keepers are wonderful. The place is clean and well kept. The grounds outside are kept up, the breakfast was good and they had a lot of people to serve and was able to do all of them the same time.
5 on June 09, 2009
My wife and I have stayed at the Brickhouse Inn for many years. The rooms, breakfast, and owners are all terrific. We consider it our home away from home. We enjoy sitting on the rockers on the porch and breakfast outside during the summer is wonderful. Afternoon cookies and a cool drink after a wonderful day on the battlefield is just right. You can't go wrong staying at the Brickhouse Inn. The staff are helping and friendly. Everytime is a wonderful experience.
5 on June 09, 2009
I highly recommend!

Brian and Tessa were most gracious and provided a clean and well appointed suite. The location is excellent and within walking distance of perhaps 5 or 6 restaurants. All in all, the Brickhouse is an excellent choice in a very busy town, in fact, the best in town.

Our first B&B experience. Beautiful landscaping and outside patio - Terrific location -walking distance to all the sites. Immaculate. Brian and Tessa went out of their way to accomodate and please.

Our stay at the Brickhouse Inn was absolutely perfect! Beautiful room, perfect atmosphere, delicious food, quiet, romantic- the perfect getaway! I would recommend this B&B to everyone!
5 on May 12, 2009
Even before our arrival, our host Brian was so helpful in making arrangements for our stay. Our accommodations were wonderful. We felt like we were visiting family. The location of the Inn was so convenient to all venues. Gettysburg is such a lovely town. We will definitely recommend the Inn to our friends and return ourselves.
4.6 on May 11, 2009
The innkeepers were decidedly hospitable and very intrusiveness. The meals were well-prepared and the atmosphere very welcoming. I will definitely return and highly recommend others to stay at the Brickhouse Inn as well!
5 on May 11, 2009
The inn far surpasses any B&B we have ever stayed at from New England to California! It was one of the most relaxing, comfortable places I've ever been. The staff was always working hard to please. We have already made plans to return!
4.4 on May 08, 2009
Brickhouse pays great attention to detail from check-in to check-out. Lovely baked treats, delicious gourmet breakfast, and inn that is in fresh it looks like it has just been refurnished!
5 on May 07, 2009
This was our first stay in a Bed and Breakfast and we enjoyed it so much! It is right in the heart of Gettysburg and we could walk everywhere! Brian and Tessa are great hosts and the food was wonderful! They even catered to my husbands dietary needs without us even asking! We can't wait to go back and would recommend this B&B to anyone! Erin and Allan - MD
5 on May 07, 2009
We had (the wife and I) a wonderful time in very historic Gettysburg. The Brickhouse Inn was immaculate and Tessa and Brian were terrific hosts. We toured the battlefields and ate at 2 different restaurants and the food was great. We'll be back for sure and will tell others too boot.
5 on May 06, 2009
I spend every Memorial Day weekend at the Brickhouse. I honestly wouldn't consider any other place. Its ALWAYS clean and cozy. Brian and Tessa are the absolute best !!! You will NOT be disipointed!! Barry, Arkansas.
5 on April 30, 2009
We stayed at the Brickhouse for 2 nights (4/17 & 4/18). We stayed in the NC Suite. Couldn't have ended up happier with our choice. The innkeepers were extremely friendly, attentive, and helpful. The food was great. The room was beautiful, clean, and very spacious. The location within the town couldn't have been better. I definitely give it in an A+ and hope we can make it back on somewhat of a regular basis. I am sure there are equally nice places in Gettysburg but I can say without hesitation that you can't go wrong picking the Brickhouse.
5 on April 25, 2009
My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay at the Brickhouse Inn. Brian, Tessa, and the staff were all wonderful and helpful. All of the recommended restaurants and tours were perfect. Our room was the South Carolina room, which was spacious, but had a cozy feeling. The entire house was very clean and well kept. Each morning, a huge, delicious breakfast was served for all guests at the inn. We enjoyed the opportunity to chat with other visitors... what a great experience! We highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. If we ever get the chance to return to Gettysburg, we will certainly stay at the Brickhouse Inn.
4.4 on April 22, 2009
my mother sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff was friendly helpful and the room was clean and comfortable. Definately recommend!
5 on April 20, 2009
This was my husband's and I first stay at a B&B and it exceded our expectations. The owners are wonderful and all guests we sat with at breakfast were great. Clean, cozy, and a friendly atmosphere. What more could you ask for? Would highly recommend.
4.8 on April 19, 2009
Innkeepers Brian and Tessa have outdone themselves in paying close attention to the finest details. Our room was beautiful and immaculate with all of the amenities, yet tastefully done in keeping with the historical theme of the inn. I'm a clean freak and it certainly passed the test. Breakfasts were plentiful and delicious. Brian and Tessa went above and beyond by providing restaurant recommendations and reservations and tour arrangements. The Brickhouse Inn is the perfect location for walking to pretty much everything you would want to see or do. It was our first trip to Gettysburg and the Brickhouse Inn but it won't be our last.
5 on April 17, 2009
Brian and the gang were wonderful. Beautiful place, cozy and ultra comfortable bed and very calm and peaceful setting. Breakfasts were fabulous!

Warm and elegant Victorian charm surrounds you at the Brickhouse. The innkeepers are attentive and gracious hosts who are attuned to the needs of every guest. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully appointed. We will go there again and often!
5 on April 13, 2009
The inn is beautiful, and I plan on visiting again in the summer time. The food was great, and the rooms were immaculate.
5 on April 09, 2009
Our experience at the Brickhouse Inn was fantastic. We originally only booked one night, but once we arrived it was too hard to leave, so we stayed over one more night. The rooms are beautiful and incredibly clean, and the breakfasts are very filling. There is tea available 24/7 (even when you arrive at midnight!) as well as homemade cookies. We were fortunate enough to get to speak with Brian quite a bit, and he was the most gracious host we have ever met. We've stayed at our share of bed and breakfasts, but this one stood out. We will stay at the Brickhouse Inn the next time we are in Gettysburg for sure! Thanks!
5 on April 09, 2009
Beautiful historic inn with a very friendly, courteous staff. Room very clean and comfortable. Highest recommendation for your visit to Gettysburg, PA.

The Brickhouse Inn is really a find. The rooms were absolutely immaculate, the innkeepers are friendly and helpful, the breakfast was fantastic, and the inn is charming. Within walking distance of the main square of Gettysburg and many restaurants. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed here for a weekend getaway and it was our first time at a bed and breakfast. The breakfast was amazing, I even got the recipe to make it at home. Brian and Tessa were so very sweet and very helpful with planning our weekend. We stayed in teh Kentucky suite which was wonderful and so clean too!! We came home refreshed and we can't wait until we can go back again.
4.2 on January 14, 2009
We enjoyed the atmosphere and the conversation. The owners were gracious and fun. The B&B was comfortable and with all the amenities we could need.

Fantastic breakfast and great location - right in downtown historical Gettysburg! I would most certainly stay here again!
4.2 on December 30, 2008
By the time we booked the only room left was the Virginia Room which was the smallest room at the inn. This room turned out to be perfect for us and we loved it. We spent much of our time away from the property but when we returned in the evening it was a welcome respite. The bed was comfortable and the shower refreshing. The bathroom was fairly large for a smaller room and we didn't feel cramped at all during our stay. Each morning we were welcomed by a scrumptious and more than filling breakfast to start our long days touring Gettysburg. The shoofly pie was great but the absolutely best part of the breakfast was the raspberry tart. They were also wonderful at accommodating special dietary needs. The property itself was wonderfully maintained inside and out. We were there in the cool of the fall but would love to return in the summer and lounge in the back yard/gardens. Lastly, the location was perfect. You can step out the door and head in any direction on foot and see the sites or find a great meal for lunch or dinner. Thanks Tessa, Brian, and everyone else that made our stay so pleasant.

Having read so many glowing reviews here, we had high expectations for our trip to the Brickhouse Inn in Gettysburg. While there was nothing terrible about our experience, we just did not find it to be as personable or intimate as we'd expected. Firstly the Inn is very large, 14 rooms, and as a couple we felt a bit lost in the shuffle. There are specific times for breakfast which we didn't like having to choose the day before, it would have been nice to have a range of times so you could sleep in a bit if you wanted in the morning. Also, the breakfast area is very tiny to serve so many people. We felt rushed and cramped, enough so that we skipped breakfast the second morning. The staff here is very pleasant but they are just that, staff. You don't get the feeling like you are staying in a home like you do with most b&b's. The owners were not present during our stay. Again, not terrible but not what we were expecting. Melanie was a gracious hostess, but she had a lot to handle with so many guests. The location is good if you want to be right in the middle of the downtown, the traffic was a bit noisy at night but didn't stop us from sleeping. The rooms were small but comfortable and everything was exceptionally clean. The parking situation left a lot to be desired, the lot is small and at the top of a hill, there are a lot of steps to negotiate. Not a huge deal for us, but I imagine it would preclude older folks from staying here. There was no type of concierge or bell person to assist with bags. While you can walk to several restaurants from the Inn, the battlefield does require a car to see all of it, so you have to worry about parking every time you return. Overall we felt a bit let down by our experience here. If you are comfortable with a more anonymous, less personal b&b stay then you will be fine here. Gettysburg has a lot of choices, and next time we will be finding a more intimate b&b to suit our preferences.
4.2 on December 10, 2008
A group of four couples came together, and the Brickhouse was very accommodating to our group. We spent a lot of time together in the parlor, and felt very at home. It was great!
5 on December 09, 2008
We stayed at the Brickhouse Inn the last week of September 2008 (am a bit late writing the review) and we could not have asked for a more perfect vacation - - due largely to our stay at this phenominal B&B. The stately home and adjoining Welty House (where our room was located) stood just a short walk from the quaint downtown area and all the fun places to shop and eat. Given our perfect weather, we were happily walking the town each day and literally, our car didn't have to move from arrival to departure. Being an older, married couple, we enjoyed the quiet charm of the neighborhood and the lovely gardens surrounding the residence. We had never stayed in a B&B and were a bit nervous, especially since we are smokers and you definitely would never ever smoke in this amazing home. But the comfort and welcome given to us by our hosts, Brian and Tess, put all of our fears to rest. The beautiful back patio which was just a step out of our door from the Alabama Room, was comfortable and inviting. When we wanted to smoke, this was the place to step to and it was perfect for us. Our Ghost Walk and DC Tour were pre-arranged by our lovely hosts and all that was left for us to do was unpack and enjoy every moment. From our Alabama room to the parlor to the gardens to the diningroom, we floated through that "other worldliness" that was the Civil War era. For a trip to Gettysburg, there was just no other way to go in our eyes. We were so sad to leave and vowed that we would return - and often - if possible. Don't miss a chance to have this experience. We guarantee you'll want to go back to the Brickhouse Inn.

Tessa, Brian, and Melanie were excellent hosts. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We stayed over the Remembrance Day Weekend. The rooms are beautiful, exceptionally clean. The owners and staff are wonderful. Anything you ask is handled immedicately with a smile. The location is the best. Breakfast each morning was much more than excpected both in taste and quantity. We have stayed at other B&B's in Gettysburg and this is definitely Number 1!!! We have already booked two more weekends and can't wait to go back and take family and friends.
5 on November 21, 2008
The accommodations were just wonderful. The owner, Tessa, was a joy in herself- we felt so much like we were in out own home. We will be returning!
5 on November 16, 2008
We had never been to Gettysburg and wanted to be close to the battlefield. We got that plus so much more at the Brickhouse. Tessa and Brian were fabulous from the start. Brian talked me through room options (we were in "Kentucky" which was great). Tessa recommended things to do, including recommending a tour guide for a battlefield tour who was unbelievable.....we've travelled around the world, and this tour was the best we've ever had. They recommended seeing a Civil War home/museum just up the street which gave a great glimpse into what was happening 'in town' during the war. And their dinner recommendations were all tops. But probably the best surprise was the breakfast. By far the best "B&B breakfast we've ever had. All around a great stay. Thanks so much!!
5 on November 13, 2008
There is no better in Gettysburg and we have stayed at several! But.... once we stayed at Brickhoue we never went anywhere else!! We are now on our 8th-10th visit to Brickhouse and we LOVE it!!! Brian and Tessa are the best! The rooms are clean beyond belief and very charming. The breakfasts are awesome and delicious. The location can not be beat! We love it there and consider Brickhouse our Gettysburg home-away-from-home!! Thanks Brian and Tessa!!!!

To stay in a pre-Civil War home on the slope of Cemetery Hill, where part of the battle was fought, was awesome!! Bright, elegant, hospitable, comfortable, and convenient to both Battlefield and old town, was awesome!!

fantastic fall colors added to a beautiful, quaint B&B, breakfast fit for royalty, and the excitement, agony, and finally thrill or Gettysburg! A great getaway- great vacation!
5 on October 25, 2008
My husband and I visited the Inn for the third time recently and as always, we were very impressed with every aspect of our stay. The rooms we've stayed in are quite large, yet very cozy and decorated as though it were the 1860's. When you go into the bathroom, you will find it is completely modern and very clean. Tessa, Brian and their staff do an incredible job of making their guests feel welcome and pampered, but there is still tremendous privacy. The breakfast menu is always a treat - it is home cooked, very hearty and perfectly presented (the raspberry tart is AMAZING!). After breakfast, we like to spend some time in the rocking chairs on the front porch, or we wander around the beautiful garden. We encourage anyone looking to fully experience Gettysburg to stay at the Brickhouse Inn - you will NOT be disappointed.
5 on October 24, 2008
Charming accomodations, gorgeous gardens, fabulous food! The Brickhouse Inn is a home away from home. You can bet, we'll be back.

The Brickhouse Inn meets the criteria of a 5 star hotel and still possesses all the charm found in B&Bs.
5 on October 18, 2008
My husband and I stayed here for one Saturday night last June. We stayed in the Texas room. It was a wonderful room at the front of the Inn. We had no problem with noise at all--slept great! The Inn has a great location. We could walk to everything. They have plenty of parking in their own lot out back so we just parked and walked everywhere. The breakfast was wonderful!!! Brain and Tessa were great hosts. We will be back!!

I have been going to Gettysburg for over 40 years, always staying at a motel. Before I was married, my wife & her aunt always stayed at B&B's. They finally talked me into staying at one. I am hooked, or like a fish will spit the hook if the B&B's in the future do no live up to the standard that the Brickhouse Inn has set. Ron & Barbara Biss

This B&B has been the most impressive of all the B&B's we've found!

Our stay in the Brickhouse Inn was a memorable experience. We were in the Maryland Room, it was beautifully decorated, very CLEAN and the bed was very comfortable. Tessa, Brian and Melanie were gracious and sweet hosts. We stayed there in the summer and the gardens were an oasis, well maintained, lovely trees and had delicious spots to sit and relax. The breakfasts were really good, the coffee was awesome. Gettysburg is an important historical and mystical place that all Americans should visit and the Brickhouse Inn is THE place to stay, make sure you let Brian and Tessa arrange a battlefield tour guide for you. We plan on returning soon.

absolutely wonderful stay, lovely Host and hostess.Loved talking to Brian about the gardens and the fish pond. Spotless house and bathrooms. Food was terrific. So peaceful sitting in the garden sipping cinnamon coffee. We loved the shopping, the food, the corny ghost tours and actually encountered something other than human....would we return? You bet...can't wait to do it again. The Delaware room was so nice, the bed comfortable and for all the goofy people ho complain about having to walk a few steps from the parking lot ...phooey on you. This is Gettysburg for goodness sake. You must walk if you wish to see anything. Kudos to Tessa and Brian for adding Class to an often numbers kind of game. I am homesick for The Brickhouse Inn!!!!!

We just got back from a 2 night stay at the Inn and I could not have been happier with our stay. The rooms were immaculate, the beds were extremely comfortable, and the location is perfect. The weather was so nice that we got to have our breakfast served to us outside. The setting is beautiful, lovely flowers and plantings and a waterfall. The food was so delicious, everyone there ate every bit that was served to us. I will tell friends to stay here and we will return. Brian and his staff were the absolute best!! Thank you

Brian & Tessa, the Inn Keeper's, were very pleasant and helper. They suggested a tour guide for the Battlefield and we took the time. Made it feel like we were part of the battle.The Kentucky Room was very comfortable and for the first time in all of our travels we didn't have to use our own pillows !! The breakfast each day was a treat. Check out the history of the Inn it will surprise you. The grounds and location were prefect. Traveling from a big city to a quite Inn will relax you in every way. We will be telling all of our family and friends about this quite B & B surrounded by all the history of Gettysburg. Thank you again Brian & Tessa. We were there June 22-24, 2008. D & K from Tennessee

What a truly amazing Bed & Breakfast! We have gone to many over the years, from California to the NY Islands, but this was honestly one of the best ever!!! All of my special requests, celebrating my wife's doctorate degree, were met with outstanding service. The Lemon-Lemon cupcakes were a top-notch delight and were certainly a grand surprise to my beautiful wife. We loved meeting Brian at the back of the home with his arms elbow-deep in topsoil preparing the garden for the summer. What a lovely gentleman he is! Not only did he spend the time to give us a tour of his lovely house, but gave us some history of the area and dining and event recommendations. His choice for Ghost Tour WAS the BEST!!! And our reccommended tour guide, Mr. George Nelson, was a true delight. He had such knowledge and passion for the history at Gettysburg that there is no better way to see the Battlefield in our opinion. The rooms of the Brickhouse Inn gave you a true feeling of living in the days of yesteryear with all of the creature comforts of modern day. Our balcony from the North Carolina Suite was outstanding and it became a morning ritual to sway in the rocking chairs while watching the cardinals swoop through the back gardens. The breakfasts were worthy of the top cooking shows on the food network! Any special request was met and all glasses were kept full with the utmost of service. Simply a delicious way to start the day! The in-laws were also very pleased with the entire stay at the Brickhouse Inn. Having never planned trips ahead of time, they were so thankful that their amazing son-in-law :) took care of everything...especially getting them the New England Suite right down the hall which they adored. All in all, we will most certainly be back again, hopefully this autumn. Cheers to Brian and Tessa for creating an amazing destination for travellers to remember and treasure as a place they can call a second home.

We were very pleasantly surprised to find that the Brickhouse Inn exceeded our expectations. Our rooms were lovely and perfectly clean…the beds very comfortable, and the grounds beautiful. We very much enjoyed your staff and the delicious breakfasts we were served. We, of course, enjoyed meeting and talking to the two of you, as well…wish we’d had more time to exchange stories! All in all, the service was excellent, the people delightful, the food delicious, and the accommodations perfect for our needs. Thank you very much. If there was any downside at all, it was the street noise once or twice in the front room…and with my arthritis, I had a bit of a problem with the stairs to and from the parking lot…however, I walked up and down through the grass and past the fish pond which turned out to be much easier! Neither of these problems spoiled our visit in any way… George Newton was most knowledgeable about the battlefields, and we took advantage of the new visitors’ center…plus we toured the Eisenhower Farm. Our dinners at the Dobbin House and the Cashtown Inn were enjoyable and the history at the Cashtown Inn was very interesting. I speak for my whole group when I thank you for your hospitality and for making our time in Gettysburg so memorable.

This was our second visit to the Brickhouse Inn. Everything was perfect. The Kentucky State was spacious and wonderful. Innkeeper Tessa was gracious welcoming and attentive to all our needs. The Brickhouse is so convenient to everything- you can walk to the Battlefield, restaurants and shopping. The breakfast at the Brickhouse superb-We'll be back!!

We happened on to this treasure and would highly recommend it to anyone. It was one of the best run B & B's we've ever stayed in. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast delicious.

My fiance and I recently spent a weekend in Gettysburg, and stayed three nights at the Brickhouse Inn. It was by far the best hotel/bed and breakfast experience we've ever had. The Inn truly brings forth an old-world charm, and Tessa and Brian are simply delightful. The breakfasts were superb, and left us too filled to eat lunch. The Inn's central location made for a very short and convenient walk to the numerous shoppes and sites in Gettysburg. We would definitely recommend the Brickhouse Inn to anyone traveling to Gettysburg.
4.8 on March 04, 2008
This is a great Bed & Breakfast! We love the history in this house. The rooms are so beautiful. The innkeepers are so helpful and kind. Our favorite B&B by far!

My husband and I truly enjoyed our two nights at the Brickhouse Inn. It's only fault was the MASSIVE, delicious breakfasts they serve...I could barely walk away from the table :) My husband was impressed enough to purchase the cookbook they sold as a gift for me! We visit Gettysburgh every year and were enthralled the the perfect location...we hope to visit again summer '08!

My husband and I very much enjoyed our beautiful stay at the Brickhouse Inn. This inn is in a great location for seeing Gettysburg attractions. It is a lovely accommodation and is kept immaculately clean. Because it is run in such an orderly manner, the normal chaos of traveling was non-existent and we enjoyed our historic surroundings without a care. The innkeepers were friendly and very helpful in giving us useful information to make our trip a memorable one.
Hi, Thanks very much for posting your review of the Brickhouse Inn. We really appreciate that you took the time and trouble to do this. It will help us a lot by encouraging guests to stay with us. We're glad you enjoyed your stay, and hope that you'll come here again one day. Best wishes, Brian

We loved our first stay at the Brickhouse Inn – from the knowledgeable and gracious hosts,Brian/Tessa and staff,to the privacy and cleanliness of our lovely room, the Delaware, in a historic home with lovely, tranquil gardens in the heart of downtown garden–our stay was so very pleasant. Having made prior arrangements, our room had a bottle of chilled wine waiting as well as tickets to a ghost walk and tickets for ice cream sundaes. Great home cooked breakfasts each morning and lively conversations with other guests. Brian’s suggestion that if we walked to Culp’s Hill from the Inn, we could get a better perspective of the significance of the battle fought there was right on! While on our walk, we met several local folks who were so willing to point out things to look for which made it even more memorable from a historic point of view.

We fully enjoyed our stay at this inn! Best of all, it was VERY clean and well-decorated—also the Innkeepers were VERY friendly and organized. The food was delicious also!

The Historic Gettysburg area. Close to everything. Charming Rooms, excellent food and wonderful innkeepers.

One of the best that we have ever used—domestically or internationally. Extremely convenient location; very clean; great outdoors; excellent service and breakfasts and great attention to the small things that make a B&B outstanding.

Beautiful Inn! The Brickhouse Inn was most comfortable, impeccably clean, and very well appointed. The location can't be beat...you can walk to almost anything, historical sites, great restaurants and cute shops. Brian arranged the drive along tour which is the best way to see the battlefields. Trust his recommendations for dinner as well. Breakfast, although tasty for me did not allow any choices (some of my friends had issues) and the one sitting did not allow for sleeping-in. I only mention these things so readers don't think all these reviews are entered by Brian and Tessa's friends or relatives! Don't forget to write a comment in your room's journal. (Check out mine in the Tennessee room) Overall, a wonderful property and one I would love to re-visit.

Everything was excellent! Well done!
5 on August 08, 2007
My wife and I recently stayed at the Bickhouse Inn and and from the time we booked our stay, the owners offered helpful advice and suggestions regarding touring the batlefield and places to dine and they offered to schedule reservations for us. The inn itself is spotless, comfortable and exudes history and the staff were polite and extremely helpful, plus the food was exceptional. We plan on going back to visit Gettysberg and we will be staying at the Brickhouse Inn again.

We had a wonderful stay! We walked to historical sites and great restaurants. Brian was extremely helpful, arranged an excellent battlefield tour guide, and was a font of local information. The room had porch with a view of the well-landscaped lawn and gardens. The breakfast and afternoon treats were great!
5 on May 30, 2007
My husband and I stayed at the Brickhouse over Memorial Day weekend and absolutely loved it. Our stay was great from beginning to end. The owners arranged our battlefield tour guide, offered to make dinner reservations, and we quite attentive. We stayed in the North Carolina suite, which had its own porch with rockers. We were taken to our suite by the inn keeper, Brian, and he tended to all of our needs. The inn provided great afternoon snacks and the breakfast in the morning was served on the terrace by the inn keepers and the other staff. The garden was beautiful. We will definitely be back again.

One place we plan to revist...charming bed and breakfast inn with wonderful host and hostess. We were pampered and made to feel right at home in every way. Cannot remember relaxing so very much. Thanks to Tessa and Brian, our new English friends in Gettysburg, PA

We enjoyed our stay very much. It is a beautiful house & setting. The atmoshpere is amazing. It's very close to everything.

This B&B is one of the best we've had the pleasure of enjoying. The Innkeepers and staff are very friendly & accomodating. We had a wonderful weekend. The breakfasts were a great way to start the day and were very well presented. The location couldn't be better, we walked to most of our destinations while we were there. The rooms are super comfortable and immaculatley kept. I even walked barefoot in the room and I never do that when I'm away from home! :) Beautiful place, can't wait to go back!
4.8 on May 12, 2007
The Brickhouse Inn is perfect for seeing Gettysburg on foot - Lincoln Square, nice restaurants, ice cream parlors, Cemetary Ridge Battlefield and the National Cemetery are all easily "walkable", and the Brickhouse staff is great at providing directions and suggestions. The staff is also exceptional at providing delicious breakfasts! A wonderful B&B, and one we look forward to staying at again.
4.6 on May 11, 2007
The Brickhous Inn was wonderful. The owners Tess and Brian are the nicest people as was everyone on their staff, especially Karen who greeted us on arrival. It is perfectly located for everything you might want to do at Gettysburg. Walking distance to outstanding restaurants, shops, and nice "watering troughs" for the ole war horse in you. Brian and Tess were full of superb recomendations for anything you may want to partake in while on your stay. The house and grounds are beautiful, plenty of off street parking, great patio for chating and a glass of wine in the evening. Extremely clean and fresh with very comfortable beds. Nice variety for breakfast so each day is something different. One day we had a horseback tour of the battlefields scheduled that conflicted with the breakfast schedule. The Brickhouse folks made us a breakfast to go. Just give them warning the day before and they will be happy to accomodate any special needs. GREAT place and people.
4.6 on May 07, 2007
Our first stay at a Bed and Breakfast and it was outstanding! It was quiet, the rooms were incredibly clean, the breakfast was out of this world, and Brian was very helpful with suggestions. Also, the inn is within walking distance to almost everything. Would definitely recommend and hoping to visit again ourselves.
4.4 on May 07, 2007
Great location, great people. Spent the weekend and despite a full house, all was in order and perfectly maintained. Beautiful grounds as well.

My husband and I stayed at The Brickhouse May 1-2. Our only regret was we did not stay another night! This was our first B&B experience and it was truly wonderful! Brian and Tessa were so nice and welcoming, we felt as though we were visiting old friends. Brian was kind enough to recommend several eating places, which ghost walk was the best and the best way to learn about the battlefield. Tessa had snacks out to munch on all day, lemonade, cold water, hot for tea or coffee, and the best peanut butter cookies! Yummmm! We stayed in the Kentucky room which was so nice,there was a seperate sitting room and a wonderful porch with rockers,that looks out to the garden. My husband and I utilized the porch for long hours of relaxation. Did I mention the bathroom has a claw foot tub? Truly relaxing! Another nice touch was the journal in our room. I sat and read through all the wonderful entrees from past guest. It is a great way to get ideas and recommendations for things to do. The breakfast was excellent, fresh fruit,breakfast cake, and the best egg,cheese,muffin recipe. Sorry I don't know the proper name of the dish but what I do know it was great! Of course you must follow up breakfast with a piece of shofly pie, again, outstanding! And finally last but not least, The Brickhouse is in walking distance to everything! We are planning on returning again next year. Thank you Tessa and Brian for making our first B&B experience a truly wonderful and unforgetable one!
