Located on a tree-lined street of stately historic homes, The Beechmont has welcomed business and leisure travelers since 1986 with exceptional hospitality and thoughtful extras designed to meet your needs. Strolling through the garden guests are awed by its centerpiece, a 140-year-old Magnolia tree. A well-stocked library and parlor offer a backdrop for relaxed conversation, while well-appointed, spacious guest rooms assure a comfortable stay. Guests often stand outside our front door and imagine the street filled with Confederate soldiers under the leadership of General Jeb Stuart clashing with Federal troops led by Generals Kilpatrick and Custer. Historians note the clash in Hanover, site of the first battle on free soil, prevented General Stuart from reaching Gettysburg until the third day of its battle. Most guests explore Gettysburg (just 14 miles west of Hanover), hunt for treasures in numerous antique malls, discover wineries and farmers markets while meandering through southern York County, enjoy golf outings on championship courses, and explore the hills of southern Pennsylvania while hiking or bicycling. No wonder contented guests return time and again, where your stay is comfortable and free of daily demands!
Magnolia is an expansive room on the first floor. Wingback chairs offer a place to sit and read or enjoy conversation. A marble fireplace is sure to please, as is the television with cable. The bathroom was remodeled to include a two-person custom shower with body jets.
A private entrance off the garden leads into this two-room suite. There is a small refrigerator in the closet off the sitting room furnished with a small sofa and comfy chair for reading. The bedroom features a king-size bed, television, gas logs in a corner stove, and a wall of windows for lots of light. The jetted shower is perfect for easing the stress of a long week at work!
This two-room suite is reached reached by its separate exterior staircase with private porch (wonderful for morning coffee). The sitting room has two chairs, small refrigerator and television with cable. The separate bedroom has a queen bed and the bathroom features a jetted shower.
Chestnut is an expansive room on the second floor overlooking the front of the inn. It features a custom jetted shower and heated bathroom floor, a king bed, television with cable, and a wingback chair and love-seat for reading and conversation.
Birch is a bright sunny room that greets the morning sunrise. It has a four-poster pencil post queen bed, and television with cable. The sitting room has a second television and queen sleeper sofa. A luxurious whirlpool tub and custom shower with body jets will sooth tired muscles and calm frazzled nerves.

I stayed in the Beechmont since the usual hotels were full because of area events. I was in town for business and wsa given a rate for business. It was great experience and the breakfast were incredible. I also got to give Sarah, their rescue dog treat everyday and had the opportunity to spoil her. I can say that this was the most relaxing time I have had on a a trip. Highly recommend. This Inn is also part of the Select Registry Bed and Breakfast which has the highest of standards. Stay there and you won't be disappointed. Mike Schwenk

My husband and I were invited to an elopement at the Beechmont this past weekend. EVERYTHING was AMAZING!!! This was our first time at a B&B, as our friends have visited many B&B's. Kathryn was a wonderful and gracious hostess! She was sooo knowledgeable about EVERYTHING in the area. The elopment was BEAUTIFUL! Kathyrn cut some beautiful roses and made a bouquet for the bride and her maid of honor. SHe made the boutineres and she game me some roses too, just because! Kathyrn also suggested a place called Bud's at Silver Run for dinner. AMAZING! When we came back to the B&B, there were fresh cookies waiting for us! I told my husband that I felt like a little kid again! I felt right at home. :-) The room (The chestnut) was beautiful and the bed was comfy! I could have slept all day! The shower was wonderful! I can't say enough about this amazing place, except~~Go! experience it for yourself!~~

Very thoughtful and tasteful owners! They really bend over backwards to make you comfy. Love the water/soda fridge for guests and the fridge/ wine glasses& opener in the room. Breakfast was fantastic.

We've stayed at the Beechmont many many times, and each visit is always exceptional. The rooms are incredible, as is the entire property. Breakfast is unbelievable. And, the hosts...totally magnificent! Our most recent visits were in mid-June 2011 and early July 2011. As I recall, our first visit was about 4 years ago, and we've returned at least once per year since.

The Beechmont Inn was an accidental find for us since all of the Gettysburg B&B's were booked for the weekend we planned visiting. We found the Beechmont in nearby Hanover; a short, scenic drive from Gettysburg and couldn't have been happier. Kathryn was a gracious and hospitable hostess from the moment we walked in the door. Her breakfasts were delicious and sustained us for the better of the day. In fact, one of the days except for an afternoon snack, we didn't need to eat until dinnertime! The room was very clean and the grounds are lovely. We stayed in November so it wasn't condusive for dining outdoors, but that means I have an excuse to visit again during the warmer months. I definitely recommend the Beechmont Inn. (p.s. Kathryn's daily fresh baked cookies were a delicious evening treat after a day of sightseeing!)

This was our 4th stay at the Beechmont Inn, and it did not disappoint! Kathryn is a gracious and knowledgeable host of this beautiful inn. Breakfasts are one of the highlights of our stay - from the coffee/tea to the smoothie and fruit course followed by an outstanding entree; different each day and great conversations with fellow guests, many of whom have been coming here for 10+ years. Our favorite room is the Magnolia, but we also love the Garden Gate (private entrance) and the Birch - each have jetted showers - wow - you just want to stay in the shower forever! The rooms are thoughtfully appointed, roomy, immaculate and the beds are so comfortable! Freshly baked cookies every afternoon/evening and a guest refrigerator off the library, along with wifi access, games and books provide all the comforts of home and more. Kathryn is a wealth of information and is always happy to assist in reservations for dinner or a Battlefield guide, etc. We feel welcome and relaxed, a great B&B experience. Check out her 2009 innkeeper award in the libray - well deserved!

Apricot Stuffed French Toast
Yum. Is there anything better than French Toast with made-from-scratch caramel syrup? Well, maybe Pineapple Upside Down French Toast? Or Spice Pancakes with Lemon Sauce? Kathryn is one of the Eight Broads in the Kitchen (read their blog!) and loves to prepare a breakfast that gets you going in the morning. It all starts with a fruit smoothie and fruit course, followed by a special egg dish, warm-from-the-oven baked goods, sides of bacon or sausage from an area butcher, and freshly brewed hot coffee or tea. Special diet? Just let us know in advance and we'll do our best to accommodate your restriction.
