Historically Decorated Bedrooms

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2009

A Sentimental Journey B&B only has five bedrooms but each is an experience in itself. They include

- "La Belle Epoque" with 21st Century comforts and the opulence of the late Victorian era;
- "String of Pearls" with WWII furnishings and decor;
- "Age of Chivalry" decorated with WWI memorabilia including original WWI posters, a relic display, turn of the century phone, and a doughboy uniform;
- "Moonlight Seranade" with an art deco bedroom set, original WWII posters, and personal items of the period; and
- "Flying Tiger - CBI Room" with Flying Tiger and Ranger art in memory of the men who fought in the CBI (China, Burma, India) theatre in WWII.

My room was the Age of Chivalry.

Directions: One-half block north of the intersection of Baltimore Street and Steinwehr Avenue, i.e., about three blocks from the National Cemetery and five blocks from downtown

Lobby Decorated with Historical Memorabilia

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2009

There is a comfortable lobby with a fireplace which is decorated with historic memorabilia. The World War II mannequin was dressed in an Army Air Corps uniform just like my father used to wear. The mannequin was realistic enough that I kept thinking that a real person was standing there when I walked in.

Directions: One-half block north of the intersection of Baltimore Street and Steinwehr Avenue, i.e., about three blocks from the National Cemetery and five blocks from downtown

Comfortable Front Porch

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2009

The front porch is right on Baltimore Street. It is a great place to sit in a 1940's glider or a rocking chair and people watch. See also a videoclip.

Hidden Gem in Gettysburg

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on December 29, 2009

I am a little hesitant to put A Sentimental Journey B&B here, since it was such a "find" and I want to be able to get a reservation when I return. It is a small B&B (five bedrooms) but clean, reasonably priced (for Gettysburg), has really hospitable owners (Barbara and Steve), and is in a great location next to the Rupp House and about a half a block south of the Farnsworth House. I am not the only one who thinks that it is a great place to stay; it gets excellent TripAdvisor reviews. In fact that is where I discovered A Sentimental Journey.

It's a former duplex townhouse that was built 65 years after Lincoln passed by on Baltimore Street to give his Gettysburg Address. One side is the B&B and the other is the Aces High Gallery with all sorts of memorabilia. See also a videoclip for how Baltimore Street looks today.

A Sentimental Journey is run in a unique way. There is no fancy, sit-down breakfast. Instead there is a kitchen stocked with continental breakfast items, fruit, snacks, juices, coffee and tea that is available 24/7. That way Barbara and Steve can have a family life after 5 PM and before 10 AM. However, they can always be contacted at 717-337-0779 (10 AM - 5 PM) and at 717-642-5188 (5 - 10 PM).

Unique Quality: A Sentimental Journey B&B has so many unique features that I shall do separate tips on them. They include the historically decorated rooms, the memorabilia in the lobby, and even the front porch which is right on Baltimore Street. There is off-street guest parking in the back (accessible from the alley that also runs behind the historic Dobbin House).

Directions: One-half block north of the intersection of Baltimore Street and Steinwehr Avenue, i.e., about three blocks from the National Cemetery and five blocks from downtown
