Amazing first time stay at a B&B!

5 on February 22, 2018

My boyfriend and I stayed over Valentine’s Day weekend in the Texas Room. WOW this is the first B&B that I’ve ever stayed in and I think they might have set the bar too high!! A warm welcome from Brian started the trip out right and then Tessa showed us around the dining room and to our room in the Welty House, including asking if we needed any recommendations on things to do or reservations to make for the weekend. The room was immaculate and the bed was SO comfortable. Given 2 choices for breakfast time (8:30am or 9:30am) I think we should’ve went with the later one because the bed was so nice and we didn’t want to get out. You do have to walk outside quickly back to the Victorian House for breakfast. Breakfast is a 3-course meal. Starting with fresh fruit or fruit/yogurt depending on the day. Then moving on to a sweet or savory course depending on the day… Saturday was a cinnamon apple cake/pancake creation, served with bacon. And Sunday was a ham/spinach quiche served with sausage and potatoes. So so good. Then you can have dessert if you want! On the sweet day, we opted out, but on Sunday we had the Shoo-Fly Pie and Apple Crumble. The Texas Room is located on the first floor, right inside the main door to the Welty House. You do hear street noise, and you will hear your neighbors above you, but I expected all of that. The bathroom was small, along with the shower… but that showerhead was amazing. Great water pressure, which is normally hard to come by in hotels. The Inn itself is in a GREAT location. 10 minute walk to “downtown” and there’s some cute shops immediately across and down the street. I’m thinking we may have to make this an annual Valentine’s weekend getaway!


Welcoming hosts and lovely place

Wish we could have stayed longer. One night was too short. Loved the place and the hosts.

Wonderful Excellent B&B

Perfect spot in the center of it all

The staff, from owners to managers, were amazing. Friendly, talkative and enjoyable. The room was clean and the linens smelt so fresh! The breakfast was phenomenal and the seating provided a comfortable atmosphere to spark up conversation with the people you ended up dining with. There were fresh baked snacks provided each evening as well as coffee, hot chocolate, soda and water available anytime, day or night. The location is perfect for walking to multiple historic sites, as well as many different shops. Within walking distance to the Dobbin House, the strip of museums down Baltimore Street and multiple ghost tours. Have stayed in a few other B&B's in Gettysburg and this will be our "home away from home" each year forward!


Outstanding B&B

Our stay at The Brickhouse B&B

4.6 on November 10, 2017

Recommended by friends, we arranged to stay at the Brickhouse at the beginning of a cross-country tour of US 66 and return. Our three-day stay was everything we expected. Brian and Tessa and their staff were so accomodating that we felt like family. Located a stones throw from the Gettyburg National Battlefield and within walking distance to great local restaurants, staying at the Brickhouse was an excellent beginning to our 30- day adventure. We will certainly stay there again when in Gettyburg.


Outstanding B&B; lovely owners

This B&B is spectacular! I can't say enough of it. The owners, staff, rooms, breakfast were exceptional! Great location - you can park the car and walk to a lot of places. This place does not disappoint!
