“Lovely Bed and Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

I saw a Groupon for this Bed and Breakfast. It was an excellent choice. It is a restored old inn which gives it charm and ambiance. We toured the new Gettysburg Battlefield Center on a cold day and we were grateful to find our cozy room and accommodating staff. Breakfast was delicious. They also serve dinner but we did not eat dinner here.

Room Tip: Our room was on the side and next to a road but we did not hear a thing.

Green Features: It Is perfect for a little get-away and to tour the surrounding area.

We've wanted to go to the Inn for quite some time now and took advantage of their spring deal. The deal itself was generous: nearly half price, two Gettysburg mugs with hot chocolate, a fruit and cheese plate waiting in the room for us, a $25 voucher to use at either of their restaurants plus we were greeted with a glass of champagne by the fire as soon as we arrived! We were in Room #1 and though we had no paranormal events we were still in love with the place. There are two lounging/reading areas upstairs plus an outdoor deck to sit and relax. The room was tastefully decorated, very clean, roomy....I had read reviews about loud trucks etc . It does sit close to the road. It is historic and is what it is. The historic is what we seek out and love. The air conditioner/heater runs and really does block out a lot of the car sounds. Honestly, it wasn't as bad as I was expecting plus I had my fan on too...bring a fan if you're concerned about car sounds. We ate the first night in the formal dining room. We tried foods that we had never had. It was an EXPERIENCE as well as a meal. It was exquisite. The second night we ate at Sharpshooter's grille. The food was equally good but less pricey and less formal of an atmosphere. All the staff were so helpful and kind. We didn't come across anyone who was less than what they should be. The Inn also takes Bed and Breakfast .com gift cards so that's nice too. Thank you for offering this wonderful deal and opportunity for us. We hope you continue to do so as we will return!

We purchased a Groupon for 2 nights, complete with a discount on the restaurant also. As usual, Groupon came through again. Very nice B&B, and loved having 2 restaurants right on the premises. We ate at the casual one the first night, and the fancier one the following night. Breakfast was OUTSTANDING. My only complaint was the lack of regular (not flavored) creamer in the room. Both days I had to go downstairs and explain what I wanted. FInally the second day they got it right. THe rooms in the front of the house can be noisy, as they are close to the road, just something to be aware of.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the road if traffic noise will keep you awake.

We took advange of a Groupon for a weekend getaway and couldn't be more satisfied with our stay at the Inn at Herr Ridge. We were greeted warmly and offered champagne immediately upon our arrival. Adored our charming room (#1) located in the original part of the inn and enjoyed the guest common areas. I was a little concerned about noise since our room faced the front and side parking lot but it turned out that it wasn't much of an issue for us but it may be for others...we would definitly stay in the same room again! I was happy to find in our room a Keurig coffee machine along with K-cups, tea, hot chocolate, creamers, sugar, etc. The common room had a refrigerator stocked with bottled water and soda. There was also a microwave. Afternoon tea and delicious cookies were offered in the common area. Very helpful and friendly staff. Tasty cooked breakfast along with a continental buffet. Had a wonderful dinner at the Sharpshooters Grille. This was our first stay here and looking forward to our next one!

Rooms were nice. We stayed in annex with family so had a homelike atmosphere. Excellent breakfast and dinner. Very close to downtown and battlefields. Only dislike was school buses in parking lot and mess behind the grille that is on the property.

We were given a gift certificate at Christmastime for one night at the Inn at Herr Ridge. We decided that the first day of Spring would be the perfect opportunity to pay a visit to historic Gettysburg and we were pleasantly surprised at how elegant the Inn turned out to be. We were met in the lobby by Sue who offered us a glass of champagne along with some historical information about the Inn. A split of champagne chilling in an ice bucket on the bureau was waiting in our room for us with a fruit and cheese plate. Room 9 was unbelievably spacious and included a microwave and Keurig coffeemaker plus a jacuzzi tub and luxurious robes and slippers. For breakfast, we had creme brulee French toast plus a buffet of fruit, cereal, yogurt, pastries, juices and coffee and tea. The staff could not have been more gracious or welcoming. Another surprise was the fabulous dinner we enjoyed at Sharpshooters - just across the parking lot from the Inn (owned by the Inn's owners). It took awhile for us to be seated but the food was definitely worth the wait. We hope to return to Gettysburg and the Inn and Sharpshooter's at a future date. We certainly enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: There are over a dozen rooms at the Inn. If Room 9 is any indication, they must all be fabulous!

My wife and I stayed for the weekend at historic Inn at Herr Ridge. Upon arrival, we were met by a friendly staff, and taken to our room. The staff, also provided my wife and I, with information of the historical circumstances, surrounding the inn during, the engagement of the Battle of Gettysburg. The room itself was clean and the hot tub was a welcome respite, after a long day of hiking the Gettysburg Battlefield. My wife and I enjoyed the outstanding service and highly recommend dining at the inn. The Inn at Herr Ridge is a great launching pad to explore historic Gettysburg and the surrounding area.
