Nice, cozy, quiet experience. Well appointed amenities. Good location in the center of Gettysburg. Check in was efficient and helpful. A small hotel in a historically significant structure. An in-room prepared breakfast was a nice touch.

There are two reserved spaces in front for unloading and a parking lot behind just for the hotel. You go through an alley to get there, The staff is very friendly and helpful and will explain.
