My family stayed at Artillery Ridge and it was more than we expected. We stayed in the 5th Wheel Camper and it was very comfortable, clean and had everything you could want -TV, Radio, Micro, Stove, Fridge. We packed our own food, so we saved a good bit.
The staff were warm , friendly and very helpful. It was very quiet and peaceful at night with exception of a horse neigh every once in awhile - which we enjoyed because we love horses.
Speaking of horses, we took the 2 hour ride into the battlefield. We were given headsets and it was narrated along landmarks and you were given history throughout the ride. The horses were great and very calm. There were four attendants with our group, which made us feel comfortable in case something were to happen. They all were very pleasant and answered any questions you may have regarding the horses, the battlefield, etc. We saw all kinds of wildlife on our ride including fox, groundhogs, deer, rabbits. You really feel like you are back in time.
It was very close to everything - Battlefield, Shops, Museums, Resturaunts. There is a nightlife with quite a few taverns and pubs, plus plenty of ghost tours.
We can not wait to return and are planning our next trip there in a couple on months.
All in all this is one of my favorite vacations and I will be back soon.
