Make your Gettysburg "encampment" three minutes west of the GNMP battlefield along the very road where Lee & Longstreet planned Day 2's attack & where Hood's & McLaws' Divisions started south to launch it. Your host, a GNMP volunteer, will provide the historical & logistical guidance you need for an unforgettable visit.

The space

The guest bedroom and bathroom are private, located at the end of the main floor, while my bedroom and bath are upstairs. Your bedroom has a dresser, a double bed with new mattress (probably comfortable for just one person), and a Tempurpedic twin-size bed great for sleeping or sitting.

Guest access

For breakfast I am glad to share coffee, fruit, juice, cereal, and milk that I usually have on hand. If you want a fancier way to start your day, there are several excellent breakfast spots within an easy one to two mile drive.

Interaction with guests

I look forward to helping you maximize your visit to Gettysburg by sharing my enjoyment of the town and my knowledge of the battle and the national military park.

Staying with Rob was such a great experience, my husband and I are already planning a return visit. Rob is so genuinely kind and is a wealth of knowledge about not only Gettysburg, but the civil war in general. He's passionate and it shows. His house is very pleasant to stay in and he brews great coffee in the morning. Would give more than 5 stars if I could.

I couldn't recommend staying at Rob's place more. My dad and I went to check out Gettysburg (knowing little about the battle) and Rob gave us the scoop on everything from the battlefield to local eats. We were thrilled to have a host who could make personalized recommendations and enjoy sharing his knowledge about the battle. If you're looking to learn about Gettysburg, Rob's your guy.

Rob's place was fantastic. The location was very convenient for getting into Gettysburg and visiting the battlefield. The accommodation was had all the amenities we needed. What really sets this listing apart, however, is Rob himself. He was an especially welcoming host and his knowledge of Gettysburg and the battlefield was second to none. This combination of attentive hospitality and experienced guidance helped make our trip truly memorable.

Wonderful host, very clean and tidy accommodations. Also, enjoyed that it is not in town, quieter and more relaxing and a short drive to town. Robert was a most gracious host and even gave our Boy Scout troop a private tour which was interesting and educational. Our Scouts camped at a different location. Robert is a wealth of information and a polite and gracious host. We are looking forward to a return visit.

I stayed at Robert's BnB for one night during a brief stop over in Gettysburg. It's a very short drive into town from Robert's, just two or three minutes. Everything was as you would expect it to be, comfortable beds, good shower and bathroom, clean and tidy. Robert offered to have some breakfast ready for us, but we were off very early and just had a cup of coffee. Robert is a wealth of information about the Gettysburg area. I highly recommend talking to him if you intend to travel there to see the sites, before booking all the tourist-ey stuff. He will help you immensely. Thanks again, Robert!

Exceeds any reasonable expectation. Robert is vastly helpful and engaging. Gettysburg itself and the battlefield would be worth the trip anyway, but Robert makes it memorable.

I am an investment adviser, former teacher, and Civil War enthusiast. After growing up in Indiana and raising my family in Massachusetts, I moved to Gettysburg following many rewarding visits over the years. The place is magical--a small, charming college town with friendly people, a wide variety of great restaurants and shops, many cultural opportunities, and most important, a spectacular national park with unrivaled historic significance. If you have never visited here, you will be overwhelmed by the size and beauty of the park and awed by the hundreds of monuments that stand as silent sentinels to commemorate the brave men who fought on this hallowed ground. History is nowhere more alive than here, and I would love to help you get started along the rewarding path toward understanding and appreciating the many layers of our nation's greatest battle. I hope you will come and explore and catch the "Gettysburg bug."
