A wonderful historic B&B on the outskirts of Gettysburg, run by Judy and Ken, who are the most delightfully welcoming and friendly hosts.
We stayed at the Inn in March 2012 (apologies for such a late review!) and had 2 rooms in the oldest part of the inn which were very comfortable and furnished in keeping with the period of the building. The ensuite bathroom to the Primrose Room was a little dated, but all worked perfectly, and totally what you would expect in a historic inn. Our teenage boys stayed in the only twin bedded room (Windflower) which was very spacious and comfortable, but the bathroom was just across the corridor.
The setting of the inn was very quiet and pretty and the garden/grounds would have been wonderful to sit in if the weather had been warmer. (We were there in March). You do need a car to stay at this inn, as it is probably about a 5-10 minute drive to downtown Gettysburg and all the attractions/museums/historic sites.
Breakfasts were delicious – and three courses if I remember rightly! – and there was also a table outside the kitchen with a large cookie jar where Judy always left some wonderful home-baked treats to enjoy anytime during the day, that none of us could resist!
There was a large and striking communal sitting room with very comfortable seating and lots of information about all the local sights and restaurants. Our favourite trip was to take a Segway tour (www.segtours.com) round the battlefields with a Park Ranger guide – it was brilliant! Not so fantastic, in our view, was The Dobbin House restaurant. It was reportedly one of the oldest inns and we were met by people wearing old-fashioned costumes etc, but the food was a real let down and extremely expensive for what it was. The Pub & Restaurant on Lincoln Square in Gettysburg was much better and $50 cheaper!
The other thing I would highly recommend doing is visiting the new Gettysbury Museum and Visitor Centre, which is absolutely superb – but allow plenty of time as there is so much to see and do!
