Amazing Stay at Gettysburg

4.8 on August 29, 2018

I have stayed at this b&b before, but most recently stayed in the Codori Suite and it was amazing. From the furnishings, to the comforts, to the luxury, just a wonderful experience. Very clean and accommodating and within walking distance to the square. The breakfast was delicious, the service was excellent. You do not want to miss staying here!
