“Perfect Romantic Getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 July 2012

My husband and I spent our wedding anniversary weekend at the Gaslight Inn, May 2012. When I reserved the room online, I also reserved a romance package which included our choice of champagne or sparkling cider, something sweet, and a $50 gift card for dinner at a restaurant of our choice. We booked into the Lily room for the fireplace and the Jacuzzi.

We arrived a little later than planned (Baltimore traffic was not kind to us), and were greeted by Elizabeth when we arrived. Parking is sparse and rather hard to find but she explained that, if we couldn't find a space in their reserved slots, we could park in the public lot across the street and they would feed the meter for us. There was even a plate full of quarters for folks who needed to park at meters.

Elizabeth had an injured foot when we were there, but she still gave us a tour of the first floor, explained the snack bar and shared mini-fridge, and signed us up for breakfast. We understand the concept of 'first come, first served', so we didn't mind being signed up for the later breakfast. Another employee (whose name I, unfortunately, cannot remember... but she was very sweet!) showed us to our room and explained the amenities.

Waiting for us in the room was a bottle of champagne on ice, a box of hand-dipped chocolates and a small envelope addressed to us containing our gift card for dinner at the Farnsworth House. The Jacuzzi made the whole room worth the price. Everything was very clean and well kept and we noticed regular tidying of our room while we were out during the day. Admittedly, the bed was a mite uncomfortable, but we attributed that to us just not being used to it.

Breakfast was amazing both days: creme brule french toast with bacon and fruit on Saturday, and cinnamon toast egg cups with fruit on Sunday. We met a different group of fellow visitors at each breakfast; everyone was kind and talkative, and Elizabeth with her young helper always made time to join in the conversation or answer any questions anyone had. The atmosphere was just cozy and friendly and amazing.

We have been to several B&B's and (thankfully) have not had a bad experience in any of them yet. Currently, this B&B tops our list of favourites. We will absolutely be returning!

Our 2-night stay in the Violet Room was relaxing and most enjoyable. Though conveniently in-town the Inn is wonderfully quiet, something both my wife and I prize. Elizabeth was most helpful upon our arrival in suggesting some options for our visit to the battlefield and environs. The breakfasts were simply outstanding. We would highly recommend this inn to others, and in fact have already done so to my brother and his wife. At some future date we will return to Gettysburg and will no doubt again stay at The Gaslight Inn.

My husband and I spent 4 nights recently at the Gaslight Inn. It was our first experience with a B&B and it was wonderful! The location is central, convenient and quiet. The B&B was charming, very comfortable and spotless. The staff was courteous and professional. Becky and Elizabeth made us feel right at home. A different gourmet breakfast every morning - fantastic. We are looking forward to our next visit to Gettysburg and will definately stay at the Gas Light Inn!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Sweet William Room. Wonderful and quiet over looking the gardens. Definately reco...

Six of us spent a weekend at the Gaslight Inn in early May. We loved the location--downtown, but off the main street and high traffic areas. We were able to walk to great restaurants for lunch and dinner.. Our rooms were immaculate and beautifully decorated. The inn has a beautiful garden and patio area and elegant common rooms to enjoy. The staff was wonderful, providing us with information on activities and restaurants and always willing to just answer questions and chat.. Each morning we enjoyed a wonderful breakfast--the egg cups and the french toast were delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the porch--a great place for a glass of wine and conversation after dinner.Our husbands really enjoyed the refreshment bar (especially the wonderful cookies) . We will definitely stay here again when we return to Gettysburg!

My wife and I spent two lovely nights here and we were extremely pleased and we will stay again on future trips to Gettysburg. We thoroughly enjoyed the Garden Room which is the only guest room on the ground floor. It was clean, convenient and had its own door to the outside patio and gardens.
The staff made the stay very comfortable; they were friendly and accommodating and provided the most delicious breakfasts.
The location of the Inn is outstanding. You are a short walk to the center of town and near all of the quaint shops and within easy walking distance of Gettysburg College. Of course, you are also conveniently located to the battlefiels as well as the Visitors' Center and all of the best restaurants. You won't be disappointed!

We spent 2 nights in this beautiful inn. The rooms are beautiful,spotless,comfortable, the balconies off the 2'nd and 3'rd floors look over immaculate gardens and the sitting room is lovely. The inn is a close walk to charming downtown and a great home base for sightseeing. Breakfasts were delicious, and the cookies left out in the evening a real treat. I loved that the unoccupied rooms were left open so we could see all the different decor. If you are comfortable in a queen size bed, the sweet William room is gorgeous! Hope to return to this tucked away gem.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are probably a little quieter. We were at the front and heard cars in the morning...

Thirteen members of our family stayed at the Gaslight Inn for my father's 90th birthday celebration. All three generations agreed that the Gaslight was a terrific place to stay. The rooms are very comfortable and immaculate, the breakfasts are delicious and the owners are extremely helpful and gracious. They help with reservations and have access to excellent battlefield guides. The inn's location is perfect too-- in-town but very quiet.
