Great Bed and Breakfast!

A wonderful place to stay in Gettysburg. Convenient location within walking distance to many attractions and restaurants. The owners were wonderful and breakfast was delightful both days of our visit.


Great first B&B experience

4.6 on September 11, 2018

We loved the history of the Welty House and the location to all that Gettysburg has to offer. The breakfasts were outstanding and Tessa and Brian were very gracious hosts. Their knowledge and recommendations helped to make our trip an exceptional one.


Perfect location,

4.0 on September 10, 2018

The Brickhouse is lovely B&B that is both historic and well located, with several restaurants and shops within walking distance. The antique decor gives a comfortable feel and the bed and bedding were superb. Despite very hot weather our room was always cool and comfortable, and I personally enjoyed the claw foot tub which reminded me of my grandma’s house. Behind the home is a beautiful garden, koi pond and waterfall. A delicious breakfast was served at outdoor tabes and we enjoyed watching birds, squirrels and chipmunks during our meal. By the way, breakfast includes desert! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to others planning a visit.


Utterly charming, would stay again

Beautiful gardens, wonderful service, fantastic breakfast, accommodating hosts. We had a wonderful time. Only issue was the air conditioning. It could not keep up with the heat of the room on the third floor.


25th Anniversary Trip

5 on September 06, 2018

We spent 2 nights in the Georgia Room for our 25th anniversary. It was AMAZING! We when arrived, we were warmly greeted introduced to the owners and then given a tour of the grounds and taken to our room. Luckily there is a small parking lot behind the property for off street parking. The room was beautifully decorated. Just remembered that because of her age, her bones creak (the floorboards) but this just added to the historical atmosphere. You will not get a more delicious breakfast feast anywhere! Eating the wonderful 3 course meal on the patio next to the waterfall and watching the small wildlife was my favorite experience. Very peaceful in the middle of Gettysburg. I’ve seen other reviews that complain about the small TV but there’s too many other things to do and see in Gettysburg to spend the day/night watching TV. You won’t miss it if you’re doing it right! The staff and owners genuinely care about your experience and you. We’re already planning our next Anniversary trip back to The Brickhouse Inn!


Gettysburg Getaway

3.6 on September 05, 2018

Lovely inn very conveniently located within walking distance to lots of shops, restaurants and some battlefields. I highly recommend using a certified guide for the battlefield tour which was conveniently arranged by our Innkeeper. Breakfast was a bit scant but aside from that it was a great place to stay. Highly recommended.


All you could wish for in Gettysburg

Ambiance and comfort abound at the Brickhouse Inn. Having had the opportunity to stay there several times, we have always found a consistent friendly welcome, plus pleasing decor, lovely grounds, and an outstanding breakfast.


Brickhouse Inn - Amazing Place

4.6 on September 03, 2018

Since staying in Gettysburg multiple times in the past, this has been our best experience yet. The Inn keepers are amazing and the Inn was perfect. Great atmosphere and perfect location in town. Highly recommend staying there. Will certainly return. A+ rating in my book.


Carriage House Room !

4.8 on August 29, 2018

This was my fourth time at the Brickhouse, each time in a different room. The carriage house room was great in itself; and its location next to the car park/parking lot was an important plus. Breakfast was, as in the past, fantastic. The location of the Brickhouse is great for proximity to the Dobbin House restaurant and its wonderful Springhouse Tavern, as well as close to the National Cemetery where Lincoln gave his famous address and where my parents are buried.


Return Trip!

5 on August 29, 2018

I stayed here a few years back and it is just as nice as it was then. The Breakfast on both days was so good. The Gardens are great to sit and relax in. Great location too!
