Gettysburg is the most visited battlefield in the United States and a top tourist destination. The Brickhouse Inn is the premier bed and breakfast inn in Gettysburg, ranking #1 out of 22 B&Bs on TripAdvisor™. This wonderful Gettysburg bed and breakfast for sale is just 1.2 miles from the Gettysburg National Military Park Visitor Center and a short walk from the shops, restaurants, museums and galleries in the historic downtown. Guests can walk and explore the battlefield right from the Inn’s door. A great location and very high level of guest satisfaction drive the Inn’s outstanding financial performance year after year.
The Inn is comprised of the 1898 Victorian House, and the 1838 Welty House (once occupied by Confederate soldiers). The historic brick buildings sit side by side and share a lovely landscaped garden with spacious brick-paved patios that create a serene courtyard atmosphere. At the back of the garden is a two-story Carriage House with a large guest room above and an office below. The Inn’s parking lot has 14 off-street parking spaces.
The Victorian House features two common rooms, two dining rooms, two adjoining kitchens (functioning as one) and a guest powder room. A wrap-around porch provides covered seating for guests. There are two suites and two guest rooms on the second floor, and four guest rooms on the third floor. The Welty House features three guest rooms on the first floor and two guest rooms and a guest suite on the second floor. Front and back porches provide covered guest seating. Guests have breakfast and other refreshments at the Victorian House or on the patios.
The 15 guest rooms vary in size and configuration: all have private bathrooms, TV with satellite service, WiFi and individually controlled heat and cooling. Guest room amenities include fireplaces, vintage claw-foot tub-showers and/or private porches. Furnishing and décor are in a comfortable eclectic antique style (See room descriptions). Gettysburg zoning permits the owners to live off-premise. The Inn’s strong room revenue and a favorable rental market make this an attractive option. Alternatively, the Carriage House could become owners’ quarters, should new owners choose.

Activities beyond the battlefield abound and include wine & food tours, museum and house tours, themed festivals, spa services and abundant shopping. Local investment in Gettysburg’s tourism infrastructure is strong. With high ratings, a great location and a long history of solid profitability, new owners will take over a thriving bed and breakfast business.
