Do not trust them with your reservation
My mother just called me crying. She and my dad had booked a reservation at Quite the Stir months ago for the 150th Anniversary (in July 2013). She recently saw on Facebook that this B&B was telling people it "was knee deep in reservations" for this big historic event and said it shouldn't be missed, so that reminded my mom to confirm her reservation. She was emailed that everything was fine and the room was reserved. Then, very quickly thereafter, she received a second vague email (which she forwarded to me) that claims unforseen personal circumstances are forcing the owners to cancel her reservation. Of course, by now, all other B&Bs are booked solid. The owners apparently aren't impacted by these same "circumstances" today (as people are staying there, they are hosting events and they are even posting Facebook updates about new landscaping enhancements) but somehow these "circumstances" will impact them a year from now (and after a call for more reservations!!!). They offered no remedy. My parents have dreamed and saved go attend this once-in-a-lifetime event, and could have booked anywhere due to their early planning. Now, they are left in the cold. I'm am appalled by this place. Terrible!!!

Travel Tips for Gettysburg
Tour the battlefield either...
Tour the battlefield either with a guide or the auto tour. Don't miss the High Water Mark, Little Round Top/Devil's Den, or the Eternal Peace Light My friend, Jim, and I watched the sunset from the top of Little Round Top. It was absolutely glorious.
Don't take ghost tours ...
Do not take a ghost tour if you find being yelled at by teenagers offensive. It is literally a past time of local high school kids to yell boo and stupid things. Take this from a past high school student.
As we drove along the back roads and throughout Gettysburg's military park, we came across hillsides filled with Black-eyed Susans. Clusters and clusters of these deep yellow flowers seemed to grow everywhere, creating lovely waves of color.
Finally, I asked Jim to stop the car so I could jump out to photograph these pretty posies. Black-eyed Susans seem to do best in country settings, but some people can grow them in their gardens. I've never had success growing them.
When I see these flowers, I never fail to think of walks we took as children which carried us along an abandoned trolley line, passed farms and apple orchards where Black-eyed Susans cropped up near our path here and there.
Sachs Covered Bridge
Sachs Covered Bridge was built in 1852. The bridge was used by Confederate troops when retreating to Virginia after the Battle of Gettysburg in July 1863.
In 1996 floodwaters swept it from its abutments. The County of Adams rehabilitated the bridge by supporting its trusses with steel beams and by raising its elevation three feet.
Located on Marsh Creek on a dead-end park road off Pumping Station Road in Gettysburg. It is closed to cars.
Culp's Hill more to see
At this location there are things that can be seen that would not be considered off the beaten path, however looks can be deceiving. On my trip last year I went up the tower that is located here and notice that I could see a few monuments back in the woods that were not visible from the road. All that is needed to get to them is take the marked hiking trails. However a word of caution the trails are pretty rough and steep at points.
There were about four monuments hidden back here. One of which was for Ohio, did not get a picture of it because I ran out of batteries.
Located on Slocum Ave., take Confederate Ave. south or Baltimore Pike south both have ways to connect to Slocum Ave.
