“A restful retreat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2012

This wonderful b&b has it all, great rooms, beautiful surroundings, friendly service and great breakfasts. Only a few miles out of town, it is beautifully decorated with all kinds of things to do. Our only disappointment was that we were expecting a fireplace and it was an electric lamp. Don't expect bathroom toiletries. Our room was huge and comfortable, the bed was very comfortable, there is a kitchen just for guest use and coffee tea always available, movies ( including the movie Gettysburg). We got to see almost all the rooms and each was beautiful. The three ponds outside our window with great landscaping greeted us each day.

Room Tip: The commanders quarters and the generals quarters overlook the ponds.

The Inn at White Oak is conveniently located just a short drive from the center square in Gettysburg. The setting is spectacular with a view of a most picturesque landscape. All of the rooms are well-decorated and quite spacious, not to mention very comfortable. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating.
The breakfast will keep you going for much of the day.
The Inn at White Oak is the perfect spot for a couple's getaway. I've stayed in many B&Bs over the years and this is one of the finest.

We just spent five days at the Inn at White Oak for all of the Remembrance festivities and had the most marvelous time. We enjoyed the parade, the live history, and the ceremony where we heard Spielberg speak and thought the entire event was wonderful. The icing on the cake was our time at the Inn at White Oak. We have heard a lot about this Inn so we were excited to get a reservation to stay and it certainly lived up to all the praise it has received! The Inn is jaw-droppingly gorgeous and the attention to detail is amazing. It is impeccably clean, the location is perfect, the guest rooms are each stunning and the breakfasts each morning were different and each to die for! We couldn't pick a favorite breakfast! We made a reservation before leaving for Remembrance weekend next year and we highly recommend this Inn!

After a busy Thanksgiving week, my wife and I were looking for a place to get away, relax, and look back at a big part of our history. As soon as we walked into the Inn at White Oak, we were greeted by the smells and decoration of the holiday season. Sam and Jillian greeted us and immediately gave us a tour of our room and the property. We stayed in the Commander's Quarters which has huge floor to ceiling windows, along with a wonderfully comfortable king size bed, and a huge bathroom with a great soaking tub. On our first morning we awoke to the deer playing right outside our window and we took advantage of the breakfast in bed option. Jeannie and Jay (Mom and Dad) presented us with a delicious breakfast, and a little history of the property. They made us very comfortable and feel like part of the family. We have stayed at many bed and breakfasts, and this one is at the top of our list. The landscape is beautiful and we plan to be back to see it when it is in full bloom.

My husband and I recently spent five days and nights at The Inn at White Oak. We were overwhelmed with the beauty of the home and the property. Jillian, Sam, Jean and Jay were wonderful hosts. The Inn is impeccable, our room was a dream come true and our breakfast each morning was delicious and filling. We took advantage of the spa, the billiard room, the theater and the lovely walking trails. We hated to leave and look forward to staying here again.

My husband and I stayed at The Inn at White Oak back in June when we were in town for a wedding. This is one of the best bed and breakfasts we've ever stayed in. The room was exceptionally clean and beautiful and the breakfasts were out of this world delcious!! Make sure you're hungry though because there is a lot of food.

We were looking to get away for some r and r - what awaited us was beyond our expectations. The hosts were very gracious and treated us like family. The rooms, breakfast, spa and grounds are spectacular. Words cannot describe our stay at the Inn.
