Who says you can’t stay at a B&B with your kids? The Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, is exceptionally family-friendly. Its location on a former battleground — now a 30-acre nature preserve — means there are plenty of areas for kids to blow off some steam. The inn also has a resident pony and horse the kids will love. During breakfast (complimentary to guests), a local historian teaches guests about the area’s past while kids dress up in Civil War-era garb to immerse themselves in the history.
All guestrooms are equipped with mini-fridges and complimentary Wi-Fi. Suites are available and ideal for families, and some accommodations have fireplaces.

This is an excellent bed and breakfast! From the minute we arrived the staff was friendly and helpful! The room was clean and very quaint! The morning historical lecture was extremely informative and entertaining! The breakfast was fantastic! Definitely worth visiting! We will be back!
I do not usually stay at B&Bs but I found this one and chose it because it was pet friendly. It was more than I expected. It is absolutely beautiful, the staff were amazing, the open areas for the dog to wander, wonderful food, and close proximity to everything made this place perfect. The room I was in was wonderful and the he bed so comfortable. I love the building and its history. I will definitely be back.
