Barker House B&B: New Oxford B&B
Located 8 miles east of Gettysburg in the little town of New Oxford. Beautiful old home preserved by the owners. Food was exceptional. Their motto is "Come as guests and leave as friends" and it is appropriate. Bob and Elizabeth were very welcoming and accommodating. Great for antique shoppers!
Don't worry about eating too much of Elizabeth's cooking, you'll surely walk it off in Gettysburg.

CRICKET HOUSE: YOUR OWN LITTLE COTTAGE
What could be better than having your own home away from home ? For the same price of a B& B for two you can have an extravagance cottage all to yourselves . ….. and a few others if you wanted. Minus an overpriced B & B breakfast, it is all that you see it to be in their web site’s pictures http://www.crickethouseatgettysburg.com/ : Clean, homey, above customary kitchen, washer dryer, two new baths decked out with a steam room in one and Jacuzzi in the other, silky smooth sheets, TV in each sitting area/bedroom, hot tub, and best of all, a few blocks from the town square and a back entrance to the battlefield!
Private fenced yard with enclosed hot tub w/ heated walkway from house.

Gettysburg KOA: Just a little ways out of town
Any time I come to Gettysburg this is the camp ground I stay at. The service is wonderful. All of the staff are friendly and helpful. The bathrooms are clean and well stocked. Also the supply store has some menus from places to eat in town.
Camp sites are some what wooded with a picnic table and fire ring at every site. The gravel on the roads continues into all the sites.
One of the main reasons I come to this KOA over other camp grounds is because of the camping kabins. They have different styles of these running from your basic, which is really only good for sleeping up to 4 people and getting out of the rain but, they do have a min fridge in them; to a deluxe camping lodges. The camping lodges have a complete bathroom with shower, kitchenette with appliances and utensils, dining area with log table and chairs. However, keep in mind that these amenities are going to cost much more then a basic kabin which runs about $45 to $85 a night.
The tent sites, though, leave something to be desired. To me they seemed much smaller then other camp grounds that I have been to. Because all the sites are gravel there is a raised dirt platform for pitching your tent.
The camper sites can be either pull through or not, with the option of water and electric or water, electric, and sewer. Which are about about average in size when compared to other camp grounds I have seen.
A camp ground with families in mind. This KOA has many things to keep younger kids occupied when you are not out in town or at the national park such as; mini golf, heated swimming pool, playground, bike rentals, shuffleboard & horseshoes, and a pavilion which hosts activities like the all you can eat pancake breakfast every weekend. There is also a very small arcade in the supply store. Even a hiking trail that makes a big loop from one end of the camp ground to the other through the woods.
Additionally, bus trips to Washington DC can be set up from the main office. The bus picks you up and drops you off right from the camp ground.

Slocum Inn: Quaint and Romantic
This place is the model of the ideal country B and B. There are two bedrooms each with fireplace and bath in the separate cottage and two bedrooms with bath on the second floor of the original section in the main house. Our family had the second floor of the house. Though the two bedrooms were not huge they were certainly adequate for their use plus we had our own private bath to share.
Breakfast….. there’s another topic!!! The two breakfasts we had there that weekend were scrumptious. The innkeeper Carol really knocks herself out when she has guests. The first morning we started with a mixed marinated fruit cup with home made cinnamon roll. Then came the blueberry bread pudding that was so light and fluffy it was more like a soufflé. I should have asked for the recipe!
I actually like the simple fifteen minute drive into town. It too is picturesque in the daytime. Pay attention though when driving back at night you could miss the first turn.
The grounds/garden are so picturesque and offer a feeling of peaceful seclusion. Unfortunately, for us we were there in November and missed the use of the quaint circular outdoor pool. The rooms and common areas are absolutely pristine and classily decorated yet achieve an inviting hominess. The architecture of house itself has another personality through the original 18th century section and the later masterful additions that managed to fool you into thinking they were there from the beginning.

Gettysburg Battlefield: Civil War Stay
I came across an interesting site today...a Gettysburg Bed and Breakfast situated on 30 acres of battlefield. They have re-enacters to add to the experience.
I am looking more into this one, and will probably set a weekend to visit...and then I'll give detailed opinions...but in the mean time, you may want to check it out!
Guests say it's haunted...they leave it up to you to figure out...

Hershey Fur traders camp ground: very old place
Very nice facilities and a large plot of land given to the family by William Penn.
I always look for campground that have less sites with more acreage. This means you aren't crammed into a spot the size of a postage stamp. This campground fits the bill with clean amenities a pond ping pong tables and a Sunday morning Christian service on the site outdoors. It is also a short drive from Gettysburg and restaurants.

Farnsworth House Inn: Haunted Gettysburg
We didn't get a chance to stay at the Farnsworth House Inn, but here's what I've found. We found out about the Inn on Haunted PA.com]. It's supposed to be one of the most haunted places in Gettysburg. The attic of the Inn was used ot fend off Union troops advancing on Cemetery Hill. There are bullet holes in the building, and is reputably haunted by a number of ghosts. You can stay in the haunted rooms, or not. They also have "haunted tours" out of the Inn.
The tavern is still in use, as an eatery and bar. Period fare, or just fair. I wasn't impressed by the tavern, it was highly commercialized. Perhaps after sundown it may feel different.
This is an historical building, used during the battle here. Look for the bullet holes in the walls...and if your fies are disappearing, just blame it on one of the ghosts!

The National Homestead: History and ghosts
The National Homestead at Gettysburg was constructed in 1869 as a dormitory for a school for soldiers' orphans established in 1866. Among its first students were the children of Sergeant Humiston who was killed at Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. He was found on the battlefield as a anonymous dead Union soldier clutching the photo of his three children. By publishing this photo in newspapers he was identified. The story of Sgt. Amos Humiston of the 154th New York Infantry and his death at the Battle of Gettysburg led to wide publicity. The photo had also produced national outpouring of donations. This donations made it possible to built the school. The Widow Humiston was the first matron, and 200 students attended before the school closed in 1877.
Many stories are told about the orphanage being haunted. Are the stories true? Maybe you can find out on one of the many ghostswalks on offer in Gettysburg.

Quaker Valley Orchards and Guest House: BEST ACCOMODATIONS FOR FAMILIES
If you are looking for room to SPREAD OUT, and not taking out a second mortgage before you go....... THIS IS IT! Besides the standard one bedroom (w/ 2 beds) and bath, there is a cute entryway next to the ample kitchen and a large living/dining combo room w/ a sleeper sofa and regular sofa. In addition, there is a coat closet in dinning area and a nice size walk-in closet in the bedroom that could be used to store suitcases out of the way. With the rollaway and crib you can fit up to a family of six (though they do say a five max).
After going into Gettysburg and seeing the traffic and the noise from the ghost walk tour guides in the evening this definitely the more peaceful place to stay!
The only thing I could say bad about the place is that the bathroom could use some updating but, is cleaner than most hotel rooms with maid service (there is none here but a change of towels everyday).
Breakfast is not served which, is a PLUS in my opinion because they are usually overpriced and kids never eat it anyways. The kitchen is fully stocked with all appliances, dishes, pots and pans, dish soap and towels (no dishwasher), paper towels, coffee and the Orchard's own brand of can peaches and apple cider. There are a few stools in kitchen, a six place dinning room set and seating for four out on the deck over looking the apple orchards.
The farm needless to say is picturesque and looks to be decorated by the owners according to the season, which only adds to the charm of the place. The only animal on the farm is a large (but lovable) Newfounland dog. Check them out on their web site (complete with pictures) www.quakervalleyorchards.com or go the Gettysburg convention web site for the link.
The deck furniture adds to the space of the place and the owners have their own children and a play area with a few swings and slide that you could ask to use.The furniture looked like they just bought it brand new, the rest appeared to be restored or faux antiques. Though we were not able to take advantage of it ourselves, there is fishing gear in the coat closet for the pond and fruit picking in the orchard probably 20 steps from the back deck. If your a city dweller and it is a clear night go out on the deck for the most star lit sky your probably ever see!

Farnsworth House Bed and Breakfast: Gettysburg's Haunted Bed and Breakfast
The accomodations were great and the staff was very friendly. We stayed in the Jennie Wade Room, our friends stayed in the Shultz Room. Our rooms were done in a victorian style, with a old fashion atmosphere. Our stay was nice and quiet. After breakfast, the hostess took all of us to the attic and told of some of the ghostly happenings that have been experienced through out the house. Sad to say none of us experienced anything. Maybe our next visit we will encounter a ghostly spirit - who knows. This picture was taken from inside the attic - this is the window from where the sharpshooters were located.

Gettysburg Pond View Farm Inn: Gettysburg Pond View Farm Inn
Regular rates are $85.00 per night, although if you stay 4 nights your 5th night is free.
Aug. 5, 2010 NOTE: The owner has contacted me that the info on this page is incorrect. This is no surprise since this info is 10 years old. If they contact me with updates, I'll make the appropriate changes.
This is a cozy, Civil War era, brick farmhouse located about 6 miles from downtown Gettysburg. With only 3 guest rooms, your stay will be peaceful. The rooms have been recently renovated and all have queen beds. The owners are very accomodating and will do whatever they can to ensure you have a wonderful stay. Breakfasts are light consisting of fruits and muffins.
