Great B&B

It was a great place to spend our anniversary weekend. Mike and Marji were hospitable, the food was great and the rooms were clean.


Girls Weekend Away

4.4 on April 20, 2016

We came to Gettysburg to do a girls weekend away and had a wonderful relaxing time at the Keystone Inn. Mike was very helpful and provided us with lots of information on local attractions. The Inn has a complimentary Gettysburg audio tour for guests to borrow. Keystone Inn is large, well maintained and even though there were six couples there we weren't on top of each other and it was a quiet weekend. Our group commented that it was a nice location, just outside of the busy downtown area. We had a great time and will be back. Highly recommend the place.

Lovely AND convenient!

Our stay was very, very nice. We wanted to be near town, but not actually 'downtown' with the hassles of parking, and this location was perfect. We definitely could have walked, but chose not to because of timing for our dinner. The house had been restored to its grandeur years back, and Mike has been doing an excellent job keeping it looking its finest. He prepared a wonderful breakfast for us, and it clearly shows that he takes pride in his cooking. We also thoroughly enjoyed our conversation with him during our visit. We stayed in the General Reynolds room which was very, very comfortable.


Perfect Accommodations, Hospitable Owner, Reasonable Price

My girlfriend and I decided to plan a last-minute weekend getaway to Gettysburg (which I would highly recommend to anyone). I found the Keystone Inn the night before we drove out there and was able to easily secure a room despite the last-minute nature of this trip. And I am very satisfied with what we got. Mike, the owner, was very courteous - offering us brownies upon checking in and giving us a brief tour of the house and room. The accommodations were very clean. The breakfast he cooked for us the next morning was delicious. And, on top of all this, the pricing was extremely affordable. I would highly recommend this B&B to anyone, especially if you are looking to remain close to downtown (it's only a 5-10 minute walk from here).


Amazing B&B!

My husband and I spent this past Valentine's Day there for the weekend and loved this place! Awesome service, extremely clean rooms/home and great food. Loved it so much we are planning to make it a tradition to stay there every Valentine's Day!


great experience

Inviting environment. The rooms were very quiet. Removed from the beaten path but within walking distance of town. No town noise or traffic. Good parking available. Liked the low music that played in the dining room....would have been nice to pipe that low volume music throughout the hallways. Would definitely return for a future stay!!!

This was our third time staying at the Keystone Inn. As always it was a pleasant experience. It is located in a quiet neighborhood but it is still close enough to all of the attractionns, battlefields, dining, and shopping. The innkeepers make sure that your stay is enjoyable. Excellent rooms, and the meals were first rate. Joseph & Susan Seaver

The location was nice and quiet compared to other some other B&B's we have stayed at in the area. The room was very clean and well kept. It was very pleasant chatting with the our hosts.

Three for three!

This past New Year's Eve was our third New Year's Eve at the Keystone Inn. We like the General Greene Suite on the top floor with in suite bath and second smaller room with a second TV. My wife gets up before I do and this lets her putter around, get the news and read without waking me. This place makes you feel comfortably at home, and what a home! The rooms are warm and comfortable. The General Greene suite has a gas fireplace and small heater in addition to the radiator heat. Even though we are on the third floor, the hot water comes up very quickly and there's plenty for a nice shower. The towels are fluffy and there's shampoo if you forgot yours. On one of the stairway landings, Mike has an "Honor System" collection of personal hygiene items, OTC pain medications, and toiletries, just in case……. I don't know where Mike and Marge store all of the Xmas decorations after Xmas, but it must be a very big place. Wow. The Xmas decor really adds to the already beautiful house. Keystone is a nice walk away from the square in Gettysburg. The house is brick built and very, very sturdy. That translates into a very quiet atmosphere. Hanover street is not a main road so traffic noise is virtually non existent. There's plenty of parking around the house, even when they're completely booked. Breakfasts are plentiful and tasty. We're not much into sweets in the morning and Mike (the main cook and bottle washer) knows that and has a nice balance of nutritious offerings. We always enjoy talking with other visitors at breakfast. He always leaves cookies or brownies under glass in the dining room for afternoon or night time snacks and there's always a large variety of tea and hot chocolate available in the dining room and a large coffee urn. He and Marge know the good places to eat. We like Sidney Willoughby Run for fine dining and Food 101 for more casual but very good food.
