Recently completed a four-night stay at the Battlefield B & B, and couldn't wait to write a review. What a wonderful stay! We stayed in the General Merritt suite, which was beautiful and comfy and quiet. The breakfasts were unbelievable, and the other guests a pleasure (which is not always true in a B & B). The historical presentations each morning were a highlight -- one couple at our table said this was their favorite part of the entire trip to Gettysburg.
I'm usually hard to please, so there must be a negative, right? It's very hard to come up with anything bad to say about this B & B. It's a bit out of the way -- but that puts it far from the crowded tourist zone. It's allegedly haunted -- but that adds to its historical charm. There's a dozen cats roaming the grounds -- and my wife found one she wanted to pack in her suitcase and bring home. OK, the bathroom's not too deluxe and the shower is a bit weak -- did I mention we stayed in the part of the house that is nearly 200 years old! Did I also mention that this 200 year-old house was the only lodging on our entire vacation that offered free wireless access?
All in all, a top-notch experience. We'll be back!
