Super surroundings and Outstanding Hosts!!

5 on August 02, 2016

We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay! The California Suite was comfortable and well appointed. The dining room had a cafe motif that was warm and inviting. We especially liked spending time on the screened front porch under the fan, watching the locals walk by . The Inn is located just far enough away from town so that the crowds aren't oppressive, yet close enough for a midday walk on a warm summer day without breaking a sweat. Best of all, there's Alex and George, who are caretakers of the tallest order as they catered to our needs and fixed us breakfasts you read about in books - both delicious and artful in their presentation. George can pick a few tunes, I have found. So we both learned a few songs from the other. You can't go wrong hanging your hat at the Raphael Inn. We'll be headed back there again soon!


A Great B and B for your Visit to Gettysburg!!

The Raphael Inn should be your Gettysburg address--especially if you love dogs! Heidi and Olive, the resident dogs, welcome to you the Inn with lots of opportunities for petting and playing. The Inn is well located close to Gettysburg College and a few blocks from the center of Gettysburg--all very walkable. George and Alexandra, your hosts, are full of knowledge of the area and share lots of advice on what to see and where to eat. Your will love the delicious breakfasts at the Inn--fresh fruit, omelettes, french toast, pastries--fantastic. The rooms at the Inn and very comfortable and lovingly decorated. Don't miss out on this Inn--Heidi and Olive would miss you!!


Fabulous Host

4.8 on June 29, 2016

My wife and I have stayed at several Bed and Breakfast Inns over the years. Truthfully, they have all had similar accommodation. What makes one B&B stand out over another is it's Hosts. George and Alexandra went to lengths to make our stay as wonderful as possible. The food was fabulous, but it was their warmth and hospitality that made the weekend special. I would highly recommend the Raphael Inn to anyone who is planning a getaway to Gettysburg.


Great place to stay

5 on January 04, 2016

Rooms were clean and very tastefully decorated. Owners were very warm, hospitable, and friendly. I would definitely recommend this inn to other travelers. The breakfast was delicious too, and the owners were very accommodating when planning the menu, as my husband doesn't eat typical breakfast food.


Breakfast to die for!

George and Alexandra were the most gracious hosts we've had in a long time! The inn feels like Grandma's house, very comfortable and inviting. Alexandra's breakfast's were works of art and almost too beautiful to eat but too good not to!


Great Place to Stay!

We had a great stay at Raphael Inn. George and Alexandra were gracious hosts. They were extremely helpful in giving us suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to eat at. Its a very delightful eclectic place to stay.


Wonderful Bed and Breakfast

My husband and I stayed at Raphael Inn and I highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast. We met our hosts who were very attentive and made sure our stay was perfect. Our room was very comfortable, we slept well, had a nice sized TV mounted to swivel toward bed or living room. At the stairway landing, a fridge stocked with cold drinks and water for guests on their way out for the day, as well as chocolate candies and other snacks. The breakfasts were excellent and served in 3 courses, delicious fruits, tasty breads, and main course. Alexandra shared her secret with us for the best bacon I've ever had. I tried it and it works!! Every morning the presentation of our breakfast was wonderful and so plentiful we did not stop for lunch. I cannot say enough good things, but one of the best parts is the wonderful hosts Alexandra, George, their Wonder Dog Heidi, and little Wonder Olive. Thank you for making our stay memorable.

Great Bed and Breakfast in Gettysburg!

The Raphael Inn in Gettysburg is a fantastic Bed and Breakfast inn. The hosts, George and Alexandra are helpful and full of information about local sights and restaurants. The breakfasts were outstanding--omelettes and French toast with delicious fresh fruit. Most importantly,there are the two canine hosts of the Inn--Heidi and Olive, known as the "Wonder Dogs". If you are missing your own pets while vacation, Heidi and Olive are there for lots of petting and playing. Don't miss out on the Raphael Inn on your trip to Gettysburg!!


Couldn't be better!

Everything you would expect in a B&B and more. The food was exceptional. Assistance in seeing the sights was beyond our expectations. Our room was clean and comfortable. Our hosts were accommodating.


Exceptional Hosts

5 on June 04, 2015

Alexandra and George are exceptional hosts who go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and comfortable. Alexandra rates a 10+ for offering suggestions about places to visit beyond the immediate area and for setting us up with an excellent tour guide while in Gettysburg. Our trip would not have been nearly as memorable without her friendliness and ideas. Very pleasant, comfortable, clean and great attention to detail.
