Charming Country Inn with Remarkable History

Like Forrest Gump, the Inn at Herr Ridge has played an improbable variety of roles in one quiet life. The property was built in 1815 as a tavern and public house, and is said to have been a hideout of infamous robber Davy Lewis. Though it was thought to have housed a brothel and counterfeiting ring, the owner later put the property to good use as a stop on the Underground Railroad. When the Civil War broke out in 1863, the house was converted into a wartime hospital. In the following decades, the building passed through several hands before current innkeeper Steven Wolf took ownership in 1977 and restored it to a cozy bed and breakfast.

The inn occupies a rural patch of land between the battlefields of Gettysburg and Caledonia State Park. Each of the 16 guest rooms reflects the country setting. In room 1, the queen-size canopy bed is draped in white, flowing gauze, and leafy vines hang from the canopy rails. There’s a hunting-lodge theme in room 9, which boasts hickory-wood furnishings, a fireplace, and a two-person jacuzzi tub.

There inn boasts two onsite restaurants. Sharpshooter's Grille is a lodge-style sports bar with microbrews, wings, and a raw-bar menu. Herr Tavern Restaurant is a more upscale affair. The Tavern's chefs source produce and meats from local farms to craft meals such as braised pork belly and cornish game hen stuffed with sausage.

Gettysburg, Pennsylvania: Small Town Steeped in Civil War History
