The Best Gettysburg Hotels Pair Comfort With Civil War Battlefield History

Accommodations in Gettysburg are reflective of the characteristics of the town, definitively unique and well preserved. Many of them have one foot still connected to the past while the other is firmly grounded in the present. Don't be surprised to find just about every other inn, farmhouse, or bed and breakfast designated as a Civil War landmark. Gettysburg residents have known since 1863 the relevance of its small town and its responsibility to the nation. There are over six dozen establishments in the shape of historic inns, bed and breakfasts, hotels, motels, resorts, cottages, guest houses and even campgrounds, to accommodate the 3.17 million visitors who come to Historic Gettysburg annually. If you want luxury, the Federal Pointe Inn is your place. This 18-suite hotel used to be a high school. If you're looking to stay in the heart of the historic district or right on the battlefield, there's a place in Gettysburg for you. The Baladerry Inn sits within walking distance of Little Round Top, one of several strategic locations on the battlefield. If you love Victorian mansions, the Brickhouse Inn is an ideal bed and breakfast that delivers on several fronts. Located in the historic district, this inn is AAA rated and offers suites for its guests. For the more standard hotel stay, guests can rest their heads at the Wyndham Gettysburg conveniently situated just off the highway, 10 minutes outside of historic Gettysburg, offering modern creature comforts that everyday travelers have come to love.
