Welcome to the Brickhouse Inn

Located in downtown historic Gettysburg, PA, the Brickhouse Inn is a premier award-winning bed and breakfast. The accommodations at the Brickhouse Inn are located in two buildings. The larger of the two buildings (with eight guest rooms), a Victorian mansion, was built in 1898, and has been restored with authentic furnishings. The Welty House, the other building (with six guest rooms) was built in 1838 and was occupied by Confederate soldiers during the Battle of Gettysburg.
