Where do I begin? First off the staff was amazing! They were always there to help us with any request or need and we’re very flexible in helping us to problem solve and ensure the day went smoothly from beginning to end. The best part of the Battlefield B and B is they have rooms available to your guests to share the entire weekend with them. The barn was amazing. The perfect venue for anyone looking for a unique rustic wedding (not to mention the amazing civil war history weaved throughout the property) Will be recommending Debbie and her staff to all of our friends looking to not only tie the knot but to have an amazing weekend surrounded by friends and family that they will remember for a lifetime. Ps did I mention the breakfast is to die for??? Will be returning to the B and B every anniversary, loved everything about it! 10/10!!Sent on 07/06/2019

Best Value For Your Money
We got married at the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. Debbie was incredible to answer any questions and to help with any part of the wedding. On the day of the wedding Debbie, Connie, and the staff were so easy to work with, and helped make the whole experience as stress free as a wedding can be. The staff really did make you feel like you were a part of the family. The day before the wedding we were permitted to come and drop off everything that we needed for the wedding and begin setting up. The barn is absolutely beautiful, to the point where very little decor is required. We had the DJ (Then We Danced), lights, tables with tablecloths, chairs and more all included in the price along with two night stay for two rooms. We found this to be the most beautiful and the best valued venue.Sent on 09/10/2019

Helped us to have a PERFECT day!
My husband and I had a perfect wedding day. I can actually say it was perfect because of Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. The staff was absolutely fabulous. The owners, Debbie and Florence, met with us a few times before our wedding weekend to go over details and help make sure we were on the right track for planning. On our wedding weekend, the amazing staff members were there to help us decorate, show us to our beautiful rooms, answer any questions, and were just *there* to help us with anything Friday. On The Day Of, we had support and help from wake up until the final guest left. We were able to relax and enjoy every moment without worry about any of the technical details (we didn't even have to clean up the reception area after the party! The employees gathered everything for us and took care of it!). They also have AMAZING breakfasts!! I can't say enough about how much I loved having my wedding at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast. It was truly the perfect day which was purely because of the amazing, caring, loving people at Battlefield Bed and Breakfast.Sent on 09/03/2019
Love this venue! The barn was lovely and the property holds excellent photo opportunities.
If you are considering a venue in the Gettysburg area, the Battlefield needs to be on top of your list. This beautiful setting is second to none and their professionalism is unmatched. We have been lucky to capture some of our favorite memories at this location with a winter wedding in 2014 that is still one of the highlights from that year. While many venues are not known to allow photographers to use their property except for the day of the event, the Battlefield allows us to not only shoot engagement session there, but also other types of photography. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this venue and is one of our favorites in Central PA
Battlefield Bed + Breakfast is an absolutely gorgeous venue! :)
