Description

Circa 1836. The handsome brick home located one block from the town square promises a getaway full of memories. The building itself is steeped in history having served as the home of a prominent Gettysburg family, apartments, business offices, a doctor's office, and lastly, a relaxing bed and breakfast. Thirteen guest rooms are featured at the inn. Homage to the inn's history is played out in some of the rooms. Miss Dorothy's Suite is an executive level second floor accommodation named in honor of a previous owner that wished to convert the building into a bed and breakfast; it boasts a king bed, electric fireplace, and jacuzzi tub. Relax under an umbrella on the patio with a book. Forgot to bring something to read? Guests are sure to find something on the floor-to-ceiling bookshelves in the library. The inn is pleased to host outdoor weddings for up to 100 guests, overnight retreats, and business dinners.

Miss Dorothys Suite

This luxurious second floor Executive Suite overlooking York Street is dedicated to Miss Dorothy, who was the previous owner of the home until 2012. Miss Dorothy purchased the 8700 square foot home in June of 2001 with hopes of someday turning the home into a Bed and Breakfast. Although, during her ownership she was not able to open the home as a Bed and Breakfast she used the home as an art studio and converted the Carriage house into her doll shop.

Prior to the outbreak of the Civil War an addition and a half story was added to the home as well as the ornate exterior moldings and trim around the windows and third story you see today. John Swope the son of George and Margaret also became a pillar of the community and in 1879 became president of the Gettysburg National Bank and was also involved with manufacturing and agriculture.

Honoring Major General George Meade, this attractive room has all the finishing touches of home. General Meade was a career army officer who fought in two wars prior to the American Civil War and rose through the ranks. General Meade was taken by surprise when he was given command of the Army of the Potomac by President Lincoln just three days prior to the battle of Gettysburg. Knowing that Lee and his Army of Northern Virginia were heading north, Meade began his pursuit of Lee to protect his country and Washington. Just days later would find himself in Gettysburg.

Longstreet Chamber

This deluxe room with its southern charm is named after Lt. General James "Old Pete" Longstreet who is one of the most notable Confederate commanders of the Civil War. Commanding the First Corps of the Army of Northern Virginia, his men at the battle of Gettysburg would fight at Devils Den, Wheatfield, Peach Orchard as well as the attack of Little Round Top. My old war Horse as Gen. Lee called him, Longstreet on July 3rd was the lead commander of Pickett's Charge(Longstreet's Assault) which is a day that changed the tide of the Civil War. After the war many of Longstreet's decisions and actions were very controversial to southerners and in 1895 he would publish his 800 page memoir titled "From Manassas to Appomattox".

Northern Spy Chamber

This stunning room was named in tribute to the delightful Northern Spy apple that once grew in the rolling hills and beautiful countryside of Gettysburg and Adams County. During the 1860's nearly every farmer had an apple orchard to use for the family and livestock. Because of the rich soil many of the farmers expanded their orchards and began selling apples as well as other produce. Today Pennsylvania is ranked as one of the largest apple growing states in the nation and our area has some of the largest orchards in PA. This eye catching room has everything you need for an enjoyable stay.
