Built in 1809, the farmhouse belonged to abolitionists Anna and Cornelius Houghtelin and was headquarters for General Merritt during the Civil War. The Solarium contains a fireplace designed by Victorian architect Frank Furness. Most historically, this property is known for being the site of General Merritt's encampment during the Battle of Gettysburg and is a privately owned part of the Gettysburg South Cavalry Battlefield.

The property became a bed and breakfast in 1994. The owners have 25 years of experience with hospitality, events, and weddings.

The Battlefield Bed and Breakfast is located on a 30 acre historic farm in Gettysburg, PA. We are one hour and 40 minutes from Washington, D.C. and one hour and 30 minutes from Baltimore, MD.

  • What a perfect Venue for our Vow Renewal getaway and Ceremony. Debbie and Florence were easy to work with and helped us bring to Life exactly what we had envisioned for our memorable, one in a Lifetime 10th Anniversary. The Bed and Breakfast welcomed us as soon as we stepped through the door! The Staff met our every need in a simple, unimposing manner. The aroma of the outstanding Breakfasts filled our room each morning and was such a pleasant way to wake up. There was a daily morning Historian who spoke each morning and gave us insight to Gettysburg. Mid-afternoon freshly baked goodies awaited us with Apple cider. And in the early evening, there was a Wine Social in the parlor, which was a perfect was to start our nightly activities. We would highly recommend this Venue as the perfect choice for a Wedding.

    responded with the following comments.

    Thank you so much, Marie. Your kind words are truly appreciated. It was a pleasure to assist you and your husband with your vow renewal. It was also a privilege to witness the love and devotion between the two of you. We wish you many, many more years of joy and happiness together. Debbie
