What a BEAUTIFUL inn! No detail was spared. The original woodwork and character was kept throughout the entire Inn and beckons you to adventure into every room. Rich and Carol, the owners, are very friendly and helpful. Being a short drive from Gettysburg, it was the PERFECT Inn to relax after a very hot day viewing the battlefields! The aroma of homemade cookies welcomed us upon our arrival, a nice treat! Breakfast was DELICIOUS, and plentiful! The history of the Inn was extremely interesting. After a brief conversation with Carol as she presented us our room, we discovered we had something in common! We grew up in the same town , bringing back fond memories! Carol's craftsmanship is to be envied, as she made the most beautiful window dressings for the Inn, as well as the fabulous quilts! AMAZING! Carol, Rich, and The Bechtel Inn!!! We'll DEFINATELY return!! And HIGHLY recommend!!!

Stayed here with my husband for our anniversary weekend and found the Bechtel Victorian Mansion Inn through a B&B website that I get "Hot Deals" from each week. We stayed in "Beaulah's Boudoir" and it was absolutely beautiful. It is the only room that has a king size bed and is located on the 2nd floor; even tho I am physically challenged, my husband took my walker up the stairs each time we went in and out of the Inn. The Inn is located on the main road through town, so if you stay in any of the rooms at the front of the Inn there is going to be road traffic noise. Also, the Inn is literally right across from a beautiful church with a bell tower, and the church bells ring out each hour, 1/4 hour, 1/2 hour, 3/4 hour and there is a multi song "Carillon" (sp?). It was interesting and pretty to hear since we live in the suburbs of Washington, DC but it took me a little while to get used to it!! The owners Rich and Carol were so wonderful and so friendly and made us feel so welcome from the get go. And boy, can Carol cook a mean breakfast! One morning, we had a puff pastry stuffed with sausage and veggies that melted in our mouths and the next morning we had thick slices of French bread that were baked with sliced apples, cinnamon and sugar. Mmmmm Mmmm Mmmmm! And Carol had homemade cookies out all day that were so yummy. The Inn is only about a 15-20 minute ride from Gettysburg, so I don't understand why people would choose a square white walled hotel room over a beautiful room in this Inn?!?!?! We took time before we left to take pictures of the Inn and even got Rich and Carol to pose for a picture! This will be my next scrapbooking project. If you are looking for a beautiful house full of Boyds Bears and collectible Boyds dolls, a delicious breakfast each morning, and wonderful hosts to take care of your every need, then the Bechtel Victorian Mansion Inn is the place to stay in the Gettysburg area!!

This bed and breakfast is an exceptional Inn to stay at. The decore is beautiful with original woodwork throughout. The Innkeepers told us the history of the manion as well and some local history. We stayed in the downstairs suite, which has a sitting room and cherry woodwork. Breakfast each morning was a gourmet treat and just delicious. We highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.

The mansion is beautiful, and the innkeepers have decorated with Victorian era antiques throughout the house. We stayed in the turret room -- the turret is open to the outside and makes for a wonderful place to sit either in the evening or in the morning. The bed was comfortable, the breakfast plentiful and delicious, and the innkeepers themselves both helpful and gregarious. Note that the average rate cited on TripAdvisor of $100 is a little low, but that the rates here are in keeping with the area (and maybe a little more reasonable).

We thoroughly enjoyed our 3-night stay at the Bechtel Victorian Mansion! The innkeepers, Richard and Carol, are very friendly and hospitable. The breakfasts are delicious - loved the orange French Toast! The rooms are very clean and they each have a private washroom. It's about a 15-20 minute drive to the Battle of Gettysburg re-enactment and about the same to the town of Hanover, which provides great shopping and dining options. Would stay again and recommend to everyone!
