Venue Setting

Imagine staying in a real 1809 Civil War farmhouse on a beautiful 30 acre nature preserve on the historic Gettysburg Battlefield behind Big Round Top. 

During the Battle of Gettysburg, this was the home of abolitionist Cornelius Houghtelin. The historic farmhouse was used as General Merritt's Headquarters (Union Cavalry.) The historic barn was a field hospital. After Pickett's Charge, the farm was used as a Union cavalry camp. Today the Farmhouse is the location of Battlefield Bed and Breakfast Inn, a twelve room Inn on the Historic Gettysburg Battlefield. We have a beautiful 30 acre property that is an ideal picturesque location for a vintage or rustic themed wedding. The barn, built in 1820, is where we host Weddings and Receptions from May to October. We also have a heated and air conditioned indoor space called the Solarium Event Venue where we host smaller ceremonies, receptions, as well as cocktail hours. 

The Barn. Our 1820's Civil War barn can seat 130 guests. The barn has two bathrooms and a luxury guest room/dressing room for the bridal party. Our package includes the chairs for your ceremony, the tables and chairs for your reception, access to decorate the day before your wedding, 4 hours of music by one of our DJ's, as well as a two night stay in our barn guestroom. Our lawns and gardens are available for outdoor ceremonies. The barn is perfect for larger events between May and mid-October. 

The Solarium. Our newest venue can seat up to 90 guests. It features a fireplace with an antique 13 foot tall mantel and mirror, natural sunlight, and state-of-the-art lighting to create the perfect mood for any event. Multiple french doors allow your guests access to the wrap-around deck and dramatic stairway which descends into the wedding garden. The Solarium has two bathrooms and two luxury guest rooms/dressing rooms for the bridal party. The Solarium wedding package includes the chairs for your ceremony, the tables and chairs for your reception, 4 hours of music by one of our DJ's, and a two night stay in the two newly constructed themed Solarium guestrooms.

The bed and breakfast has 10 guest rooms in the farmhouse, one room in the Historic Barn, and Swan Cottage. The cottage is a private separate house with two Jacuzzi's, two massage chairs, a full kitchen, dining room, and living room.

There are three buildings and 30 acres that can used to create the wedding of your dreams. Our wedding parties can rent any or all of the buildings.

The Battlefield Bed and Breakfast venue is very flexible and loves to host unique events. We are child and pet friendly. Your dog can be part of your ceremony.
