... few days. We watched a movie on the Disney channel the afternoon and I did more blogs and uploaded lots of pics.
We had Chinese for dinner at China House in Littlestown. We got there before 6. There was only one other customer when we got there but by the time we left it was full.
I had egg-roll and Seafood War Bor- lots of scallops and shrimp and crab stick with broccoli, onions and carrots on sizzling ...
... home to eat over the next day or so. We got home just as thunder storm hit and grabbed a few items of washing off the line before retreating inside.
After the storm subsided Gabrielle, Chey and I went to the Taneytown Library to print our Greyhound ticket from Miami to Orlando. (The website did not offer the option to pick up the tickets at the Greyhound Station in Miami although it had for the one ...
... 40 - blue crab, shrimp and snow crab. I had 6 'small' crabs they were $1.50 each and came with a green salad, plenty for me. Large crabs were $70 a dozen. Gabrielle had clams and Marie had Surf and Turf - shrimp and steak. It cost us $100 all up for 4. Great.
Then back to Gab's place. I had a nap sitting on the couch while she connected the WIFI then did a bit of blog and into bed about 11.
... With ammunition very low, he gave the order to fix bayonets and they charged down the steep ridge. The charge pretty much finished the men from Alabama, and earned Chamberlain (a college professor before the war) the Medal of Honor.
There were 100 or 1,000 other men on both sides just as brave, but he certainly represents the amazing sacrifices of the three day battle. I cannot remember any historical place I have enjoyed as much as Gettysburg.
... and a wonderful pile of steamed shrimp, while we watched Michigan win their game.
We walked a bit around the town square...I passed up a cupcake!, saw the Wills House where Lincoln stayed the night before he gave the Gettysburg Address, and headed back for a last look. I wanted to go to Cemetery Ridge for a better angle of the sun. There is a wonderful statue of a pregnant woman working in the field, the "Women's Statue" and I had a better feeling ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Brickhouse Inn Bed & Breakfast Gettysburg
Great B&B--cozy and comfortable
We really enjoyed our stay at this B&B. Our room was very comfortable and cozy. It has a great location--walking distance to all the shops in town. Breakfast was great--the shoo fly pie is the best! Very clean and private. The bathroom was really nicely redone. The innkeepers do not live in the house, but right next door.
The B&B was extremely clean and tastfully decorated. The cookies and lemonade was very good especially since I am not crazy about lemonade. Inn owners recommended places to eat also have a book with restaurant information and menus. We stayed in the New England Suite which was a very nice room. The water pressure is outstanding no place has ever had good water pressure. Though we could hear some street traffic it was quiet in the room. The only drawback for a person would be if they have arthritis, leg, knee or hip problems the claw tub with shower is up off floor and you have to be able to lift your leg about 3 feet to be able to get over the claw tub wall. The shower is tall enough for some who may be up to 6ft 5 in. They also have a closet titled "guest services" which has some supplies in case you left anything at home I needed bandages and was nice to find some to keep me from having to travel out to a local store. The staff and owners were very nice and also professional. Definetly my favorite place to stay in Gettysburg to date.
Loved this B&B
This is a wonderful place to stay - walking distance to shops and The Dobbin House - great chocolate chip cookies and very accommodating owner - we had to leave before breakfast to catch a flight and he gave us pastry/apple/cookies to go - great room with fireplace - if I go back I'd probably stay in the main building since the weather was bad and it would have been nice to just go right downstairs for breakfast.
A perfect B&B
As good as a B&B can get. We stayed in the Ohio Room. Located on the 3rd floor - it was a bit of a challenge getting our heavy suitcase to the room. But the room was spotless, the bed comfortable, and the house is beautifully preserved. The breakfasts were first rate. We liked the location - very close to the battlefield and in walking distance of the best restaurants and the town square. A perfect place to stay.
Can't say enough great things!
The Brickhouse Inn was fantastic! They are centrally located to great food and all the Gettysburg attractions. The Visitor's Center is in walking distance. Breakfast was delicious each morning, and I can't count the number of fresh chocolate chip cookies I ate each afternoon. My husband and I are already planning our next trip to the Brickhouse!
Have been staying at the Brickhouse twice a year for four years. it is a spotless, warm old inn. The innkeepers , Craig and Marion are wonderful and are always there to offer information and answer any questions you have. The breakfasts are delicious and different every morning. It is within walking distance to everything. The beds are so comfortable. The rooms are full of period antiques. Marion makes homemade cookies for you every day and there is coffee, tea, beverages and chocolates in the dining room for you. It is just the best b&b I've ever stayed at. Don't forget the wrap around porch with rocking chairs you can sit in while watching and listening to the horse-drawn carriages go by. Recommend it highly! It is not supposed to be haunted, but I do have a few pictures with orbs, and streaks of white light in the house.
A great first B&B experience!
Our first experience at a B&B. I'm glad I found the Brickhouse Inn. Not only did they have a great January (1/23 & 23/2004) deal, but we had 5 1/2 inches of snow on Saturday to wake up to. The Inn was very, very clean. We went with another couple and we had the Delaware room with a fireplace and they had the room upstairs with a fireplace. It was great. The breakfasts were fantastic, especially the Baked Apple Pancakes, shoo-fly pie, and fresh fruit. We enjoyed the big house, it was beautiful and the antiques made you fell like you were part of history. The evening snacks (chocolate chips cookies) and beverages were great. It was a very relaxing weekend. If you get a chance to stay here you will not be sorry.
5 star review

Attention to detail!
Having stayed at hundreds of B&B's throughout the US, the Brickhouse Inn ranks among the top 10! The place is immaculate, the antique furnishings beautiful and the food fantastic. The attention to detail and the hospitality of Craig and Marion is just out of this world. We will return many times over. RG
What a Great B&B!
The Brickhouse Inn is situated in the historic district within walking distance to everything. The innkeepers are great hosts, the Inn was tastefully decorated, the rooms were spotless and the breakfast was out of this world! We will be back!Jan & Jeff
