Whether you love the cold weather or not, we all need to get away during the winter. And, if it is going to be a little colder outside, or maybe a little snowy if we’re lucky, there’s nothing wrong with finding a wonderful place to stay and cuddling up for the weekend.
To help you get started with a few ideas, here are ten of the coziest winter retreats around Gettysburg.
This charming bed & breakfast is a wonderful spot to escape. Located on a historic farm that served as a field hospital during the battle of Gettysburg, you will be taken to a slower time of life, where just enjoying each other is enough. Looking to snuggle up by the fire for an afternoon or evening, consider the Marigold or Shamrock rooms, both are a cozy setting complete with fireplace.
Check in to this 23-suite, upscale boutique hotel and you won’t want to leave. Luxury has never been so cozy. Sink into the king-sized bed in what feels like a royal room. Want to share a cocktail? You don’t even have to leave the hotel – Just stop downstairs to The Pointe Pub for a great drink and food selections. Once the borough high school, Federal Pointe Inn is located within walking distance of historical attractions, shopping and dining.
Located right on Lincoln Square, Gettysburg Hotel provides a great setting, rooms to get snug in, and public spaces that bring the destination to you. When making reservations, consider one of the hotel’s Premier Rooms, complete with fireplace and Jacuzzi jet tub. One Lincoln, the hotel’s on-site restaurant and tavern, is serving up something delicious at every meal. If you want to explore but don’t want to pull the car from the garage, walk to restaurants, dining, and attractions. You can even catch a ride with Freedom Transit to the National Park Museum & Visitor Center for a day of history or to the Outlet Shoppes at Gettysburg for a day of shopping.
If you are looking for a cozy getaway, consider a stay in the 1757 Guest Suite at the Historic Fairfield Inn. Climb the stairs to this guest room, which is part of the original home built by Squire and Maggie Miller – the founders of the town of Fairfield. Your room includes a quaint, private parlor, whirlpool tub, fireplace and a wall of window seats. Sit and relax, enjoy your favorite book or your favorite glass or wine. Just 15 minutes west of Gettysburg, be sure to discover the history of the inn and the battles that occurred in Fairfield during the Civil War.
Located close to Lincoln Square, The Gaslight Inn is a peaceful getaway close to the downtown scene. The 1872 home is elegantly restored into nine rooms that are complete with queen or king sized beds, private baths, jacuzzies, and a fireplace.

The Lodge at Liberty Mountain Resort is the place for your winter retreat. Get active on the slopes then hit the on-site salon and spa. Take a swim in the indoor saltwater pool.

This will be a getaway for the history books.
Forget a cozy room, The Lodges offers your own personal warm and cozy lodge with hardwood floors, rustic antiques and comfy furnishings. Enjoy relaxing with the on-site spa or a cocktail at their Gloryridge Tavern. Spend time exploring the property or take a short drive into town to enjoy all that Gettysburg has to offer.
