Welcome to the Gaslight Inn

The Gaslight Inn, a Gettysburg bed and breakfast, provides uncommon attention to details - arranging a private tour guide, helping you select a restaurant for dinner, making certain your wine is chilled, or making arrangements for a carriage ride through the Battlefield.

An in-town oasis, The Gaslight Inn is conveniently located just one block from Lincoln Square, the center of Gettysburg, PA and one block from East Confederate Avenue, the Culps Hill area of the Battlefield.

Gettysburg 150th Anniversary

The Most Famous Small Town in America

The Battle of Gettysburg was the turning point of the American Civil War. For three hot days in July 1863, our small Pennsylvania town was the scene of hard-fought battles, esteemed bravery and the bloodshed of 51,000 men.  

With a much needed Union victory, many historians agree that it was on these hallowed grounds that our nation was saved, and deem the Battle of Gettysburg as the defining moment that changed the direction of the war and the morale of the nation. After nearly 150 years what happened in Gettysburg is not forgotten. We invite you to visit and walk in the footsteps of history.
