Of couse we'll be back

Sweet Janice greeted us and offered refreshments while she concluded receiving a previous arrival. What a gratifying way to be welcomed. It would be difficult to name just one favorite during our stay: Our room was well organized, very clean & accommodating of the "stuff" we brought with us; iced tea & cookies enjoyed while sitting on the front porch; a comfy bed in a lovely room where we controlled the temperature setting; breakfast customized to dietary restrictions.. the list goes on. This was our third visit. Sometimes you find your memories sweeter and a follow up visit falls short of expectations. With this visit we created more memories AND a strong intention to return again.

The Brickhouse Inn did a wonderful job providing customer service. I had to ask for an ice pack and they were quick to respond and even followed up with me on it. We also were going to miss breakfast due to an early tour. They packed us a to-go bag. We were in one of the smaller rooms and there was still a lot space.


Brickhouse Inn is Amazing

We had a wonderful stay at the Brickhouse Inn. The staff was personable and kind. The breakfasts were delicious, something new and unique each day. Our room was clean. We loved everything about our stay especially the afternoon cookies/pastries that are put out for the guests. We will return in the future.


Wonderful

We had never stayed at a bed & breakfast. The Brickhouse Inn was a great experience. The grounds are beautiful and the staff was so pleasant. The breakfasts were unbelievably delicious. We would definitely stay again. So many sites and restaurants were within walking distances


Relaxing ambiance

4.6 on June 16, 2016

Three days recently enjoyed at the Brickhouse was not nearly enough! The room was large, nicely furnished and very clean. The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, so different from the norm. The garden was beautifully relaxing. Cordial hosts Tessa and Brian saw to every need and provided excellent information about what to see and do in Gettysburg. I would stay with them again were I to return to Gettysburg.

Best B&B I've ever experienced

5 on June 08, 2016

I can't say enough great things about this place. My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary with a stay at the Brickhouse Inn and it exceeded my expectations! We stayed in the Illinois room, which overlooked Baltimore street. We loved knowing that Lincoln himself passed right by our room on his way to make the Gettysburg Address. And, ours was the room you can mainly see in the photograph of this famous 'journey', which they show you in the check in process. Fun facts to hear! The room was comfortable, clean and inviting. Along with the history and character, you also have modern conveniences. Even the water pressure was great lol! I was concerned about how well we would sleep because we are spoiled with a tempurpedic mattress at home, but we slept great! It's not at all an old crappy bed, quite the opposite, in fact. The breakfasts were amazing! The food is like 5 star dining, with a full 3 course meal to start your day. And in the afternoons they have goodies and cake in the common room, daily! I love cake, so this was heaven for me. The staff is super friendly and always striving to go the extra mile to make your stay the best possible. I give this 5 full stars without hesitation. If I were to state a few downsides, let me reiterate that they are very minor. My husband would have liked it if our room was connected to the main building, instead of in a separate building. But I see why they kept the originality of the structure. I would have liked the windows to be able to open. But the AC and heater were completely adjustable to your liking, so we were still always comfortable. The only bad part of our stay was a rude couple from Australia we tried to avoid, but that's hardly a fault of the B&B! We've stayed at other B&B's in the past, but this is by far our favorite!


Exceptional place to stay in Gettysburg!

My husband, son and I recently spent a night at the Brickhouse Inn. Our arrival time was much later than we had planned due to traffic problems. (It was Memorial Day weekend and we were travelling from New Hampshire). The staff was very accommodating and gave us specific instructions on how to get to our room as there would be no one available that late at night. Our room was beautiful - we had the New England Suite. It was so comfortable and clean! In the morning we had the most delicious breakfast! The owners greeted us at breakfast and even helped serve! It was such a beautiful morning - we were able to dine outside! We purchased the tour package which included a 3 hour personal tour of the battlegrounds. It was very informative and interesting. I hope we have the opportunity to go back to Gettysburg soon and if so, we will definitely be making reservations at the Brickhouse Inn. The Carroll's Sunapee, NH
