As my review title suggests, we are closet history buffs and enjoy learning about our country's past which prompted our visit to Gettysburg. I booked a Presidential Lodge at The Lodges with the Galloping into History package for my family of 4, children ages 15 and 21. The view from our lodge was beautiful, and the lodge itself was rustic with modern convenience. Our lodge had plenty of breathing room as it had a bedroom/living room area, kitchenette, separate bedroom, and bathroom. The small patio was perfect for stargazing and wine sipping. Continental breakfast is included. The staff was knowledgable and friendly. For the galloping part of our package, we chose the 2 hour horseback ride. It was a fun way to learn about our country's history! We had one issue during this stay: On our first night, the shower was backed up. It took 2 phone calls to get somebody out to fix it, but I get the feeling that this is not the norm. I recommend this hotel
for history buffs who like to get away from it all. There is plenty of history to explore nearby. I also think this area is best for older kids because they will appreciate the stories that are told.
