The Battlefield Bed and Breakfast at Gettysburg

Joyce Faulkner shares her comments about the Battlefield B&B. If you visit Gettysburg, this is a great place. Thanks, Joyce, for painting a picture of a delightful vacation stay.

grounds are well-groomed and beautiful -- perfect for meditation or

wrap-around deck. Plates of fresh cookies and pitchers of lemonade
fuel long walks and power naps.

Florence and her staff see to your comfort and safety while providing
you with the materials for a fun and relaxing educational vacation.
