    This was our second stay here and I cannot say enough about it. We stayed there shortly after Christine and Todd had bought the Inn - and they have kept all the good things they were doing back then and just improved on them! Of course, they always say "location, location, location" and that truly applies here. IF you can manage to roll out of bed early in the morning - take a walk - you are right on the battlefield. The rooms are lovely and comfortable - the food great - Charlie is wonderful as always - and this time we met Ralph the tour guide who we enjoyed thoroughly in our personal tour. I hate to recommend a place because I dont want to be blocked out of a place because it gets too popular - but there is no way NOT to brag about this place!

    Soooooo amazing. Inkeepers are great but the grounds are truly amazing. Just outside of town and very quiet. They really keep it that way. There are quiet hours (night) and no tvs. Lots of outside places to read and picnic. Great views. Right on the battlefield. Place can also be a bit creepy/fun for those interested in ghostly activity. I mean, it is on a battlefield!! Totally recommend it. Great prices too. Fully cooked breakfast.

    If you're thinking about staying in Gettysburg, do not overlook bed and breakfasts. This one is priced competitively with the chain hotels and it's located right on the battlefield. It's quiet and I wasn't annoyed by other guests.

    Great customer service. Breakfast was amazing. The web site is very professional also. This is a great place to stay if you like dogs!

    I do not eat bacon and the hosts prepared a breakfast sans bacon for me. My husband loved the egg dish that included bacon. Everything at breakfast was labeled and simple to find.

    The Doubleday Inn is located ON the battlefield in the area of the first day of battle. They are located right outside of town which makes for a quiet and relaxing stay. The sunset view is great but the sunrise is my favorite. I wake up early each stay just to watch the sun rise over the hill in the background.

    The grounds are well kept and there is a lovely garden in the back. Truly ideal to throw down a blanket and enjoy a picnic on the battlefield.

    There are chairs in the backyard to relax with a book. A side porch with more seating. Also a 2nd story deck with tables and chairs. Grab a bottle of wine and enjoy the view. Or grab a book to rewind down from a busy day.

    The Inn is decorated wonderfully. Great artworks depicting the War, a cozy couch to sit upon. Love staying during the colder months when they have the fireplace going. The dining area is setup beautifully.  They provide wine glasses and everything else you might need. There is also a small fridge for our use. I've kept a few bottles of beers in there and the other guests were respectful of my items.

    I love the snacks they set out during the day. Usually some sort of homemade cookies along with a variety of tea packets and hot chocolate. You truly feel special the way the Inn Keepers provide you with everything you need to feel right at home.

    And the breakfast. Boy do they treat you well with a fresh made delicious breakfast that is filling. I've stayed at a few B&B and their breakfast is my favorite. They will accommodate your food needs with pleasure.   I also love sitting at the table with the other guests for a morning talk over breakfast. Everyone who stays there are the friendliest people I've met.

    The nighttime are quiet hours and everyone respects that. There are no TVs in the Inn. Plus, who needs one when you are visiting such a historical site?

    The rooms are prepared and decorated with care. You are free to roam around to check out the others so long that they are empty. I've stayed in four different rooms so far. My goal is to stay in each one. I will not go into detail the rooms-- all that info can be found on their professional and informative website.

    The prices are competitive with the area and not a wallet breaker. If you are visiting Gettysburg this is the place to stay.

    Christine and Todd run a superb B&B. They are sweet, caring, and professional. If you have any questions about the area don't hesitate to ask. Christine is a town guide as well and Todd is pretty much an encyclopedia about the battle.  Oh, on Wednesdays and Saturdays they have a guest speaker come in for a talk about the battle. Such a great time to sit around and ask questions about the battle.

    Last but not least is Molly, the Inn's golden retriever. They like to joke that everyone comes to see Molly. She is a wonderful dog. Grab a tennis ball and throw it around for her in the backyard.

    Overall, the Doubleday Inn is my home away from home when I visit Gettysburg. It's everything and beyond that you would expect from a B&B.

    This place is a true gem. I cannot recommend it highly enough.  This was our first visit to Gettysburg and I could not wait to stay here...and my husband and I were NOT disappointed.  Todd and Christine were so wonderful and gave us great insider tips and recommendations. We would not have had the same amazing experience without them.  Our room was VERY comfortable, spotlessly clean, and overlooked the battlefield.

    Some other highlights:

    It's ON the battlefield. Beautiful views.  
    Amaaazing homemade breakfasts. Hearty yet refined & served on china.  
    You get a copy of the auto tour to use with your stay.
    Wonderful conversation during and after breakfast with other guests and our wonderful hosts helped us process and better understand certain parts of the battle, which was an integral part of the experience for me. You can't get that anywhere else!

    I could go on and on about how our visit was wonderful, homey, informative, delicious, amazing, enjoyable...but you should just find out for yourself!

    Trust me and stay here on your trip to Gettysburg!!

    Todd and Christine are fabulous hosts. They are truly warm and welcoming people. The Inn itself is inviting and beautiful, and there's nothing like waking up to views of the battlefield. Can't wait to come back.

    Todd was so nice! We checked in with him on a Friday and he made us feel so welcome and at home, and gave us a map and guides to local restaurants and the battlefield. We met Christine the next day as she was out of town when we checked in and she was equally welcoming and friendly.

    Did I mention the Inn is ON the battlefield? It doesn't get much cooler than that. They have an audio tour which you can borrow, but we were only staying overnight so it wasn't really in our schedule, since it is a really long tour.

    I had not been in a bed and breakfast before and it was a very welcoming and highly enjoyable atmosphere. The bed was fantastically comfortable, it was hard to get up for breakfast! By the way the breakfast was AMAZING, all the reviews about it are true.

    Not to mention Todd makes the meanest plate of cookies you will ever have in your entire life. Check out their website, its awesome and I literally was able to make a weekend itinerary completely off the information they had on it.

    This was an amazing inn!  The breakfast was beyond words amazing and everything was just right.  The inn is right on the battlefield with outside seating and a hammock.  Molly was the best part!  :)

    Outstanding! Right on the battlefield with a charming ambiance and gracious innkeeper  . Our group of 8 gentlemen enjoyed every bit of our two nights at the Inn . Rooms are very nice with large private baths . Comfortable and appointed in
    Period detail . Fantastic breakfasts and coffee , tea and cookies in the afternoon. After seeing other offerings in Gettysburg why would you stay anyplace else ?

    Had a great time here.

    Highly recommend it.

    Where else can you stay right on the battlefield?

    Wish we could have stayed longer. The owner was very friendly ( and a fan of rye) and the dog was a sweetheart.

    Really nice, clean welcoming place to stay. Todd and Christine know their business and how to keep their guests happy. The prices are about as expected, and the breakfasts were well prepared.

    I contacted Todd ahead of time to arrange for the Bell-Jefferson room. It has a queen sized bed in a good sized room. The bathroom had a claw-footed tub that has been around for a few years- in a good way. The room came with a guidebook of the battlefield along with a CD-Rom that could be taken with you as you toured the field. We also made arrangements for our friends to stay in the next room- the Robert E Lee room. They were also very comfortable in their similar room.

    Todd also made arrangements for a licensed guide for our tour of the battlefield- his recommendation was perfect for us- Rich Kohrs. I highly recommend his services.

    Breakfast both mornings was available a couple of minutes before the 8:00 scheduled time. We needed to drive over to Philly the 2nd day and appreciated the effort in that regard.

    We will definitely be trying to stay at Doubleday again. The only thing we missed was the dog that they advertise on their website. They had to put him down a month or so before, and you could tell they were still in mourning.

    At first, it was kinda annoying, & overwhelmed @ all the information when we got inside, that we just want to get in our room and RELAX or in my case, PEE!  If you know what I mean?  I can understand, that part, because I'm a vendor and when someone approaches my booth, I give them too much info, bit by bit forgetting to breath . . . .  then they walk away, or stay & buy.  That was what it was like entering the room.  LOL

    The room we were in, was big, the bathroom was bright, I have a settee, and a window, big enough to add another bed!  There's only room for one comfy chair in the bedroom, so I let my husband keep that room to 'himself'. He likes the soft comfy chair anyway!  The room was facing the Battlefield, and the 'ghost' house across the street.  But don't let that spook you, like it did me, after my husband gave me the 'history' to read about the farm we're staying in.

    The breakfast was delicious! Hey, what can I say?  We're in the middle of the Battlefield, that happened in 1863.  And it's all right there in front of our noses!  It took about 3 mins. to drive back to town, and you can see the Gettysburg College from the back porch.  

    I can't find anything negative about this place.  Oh, wait there is! The walls are 'paper-thin', I could hear the guy next door breathing in his sleep. And my husband & I have to whisper, we tend to talk LOUD always!  I'm sure, they'd be writing about hearing loud footsteps downstairs, from us, because he tends to have BANGING footsteps as he walks.  Remember: this is a house, not a hotel, B&B are all like that!

    I visited the room Bob Hope stayed, and it was a little bigger than my bathroom!  I didn't even take photos. I wanted to!

    Note:  I heard Dolores & Bob had separate rooms. The reason why their marriage lasted so long!  Have separate bedrooms, folks! :)
