Gettysburg Bed and Breakfasts
Try the Gettysburg bed and breakfasts, and you won’t be disappointed! There are different types of places to stay. Some are more private than others are, but all are intimate and offer a unique way to experience the area during your Gettysburg vacation.
The most famous bed and breakfast Gettysburg offers is the 10 room Farnsworth House Inn, well-known for its ghosts. The Farnsworth is also known for its Tavern with Gettysburg movie relics, fine dining restaurant with period dishes and costumed servers (and with the option of garden dining by a stream!), bookshop and gallery, and Mourning Theatre giving two nightly performances in the house cellar. Could they possibly fit anything else on the little town lot?! It’s an excellent use of space with a very intimate feel, and I find it incredible that there’s so much there because it doesn’t feel crowded. There’s ample parking directly behind. The dining room has a children’s menu, but overnight inn guests must be 16 or over.
If you want a unique experience with the kids, try the Gettysburg Battlefield Bed and Breakfast located up a gravel driveway, just behind a hedgerow on the South Cavalry Battlefield. It’s near Boyd’s Bear Country. They have 8 guest rooms and 3 common rooms. There are daily history presentations, Friday night ghost stories, and farm animals. It’s more like a homestead bed and breakfast. Costumed staff serve a 2 course breakfast, and there is afternoon tea. This B&B allows leashed dogs that don’t whine when left in the room, so it’s a good choice if you travel with pets! If you would prefer to not have any children or pets around during your stay, that can be arranged when you make reservations.
If you are planning to tour the Gettysburg battlefields on bicycle, the Doubleday Inn is a good place to bed and breakfast Gettysburg. It’s located right across the road from park ground and within sight of the Eternal Light Peace Memorial. They have a bicycle garage for guests, and there’s a place to rent bikes nearby. They serve afternoon tea, and on most Wednesdays and Saturdays, a licensed battlefield guide stops in for discussions.
If you want something more private without shared meals and common rooms, get the Gettysburg bed and breakfasts feel at the James Gettys Hotel. Their suites have a private bathroom and sitting room, and a continental breakfast is delivered to the room.
There are many more Gettysburg bed and breakfasts to discover. These are just my favorites that I’ve found so far. The Raphael Inn Bed and Breakfast looks interesting, too! I need to stop in and check it out. Or maybe you have a review to share?
