We stayed at Quite the Stir Guest House over Easter Weekend. The location of the bungalow is great and the place itself is simply gorgeous! It's much bigger than we expected and the decor is absolutely fantastic! We had so much fun dressing up in vintage clothes, listening to Frank Sinatra and pretending we lived back in the 1940's. There...

Quite the Stir was really great to us during our stay in Gettysburg. The innkeepers were great and saw to all of our wishes. The back yard was an unexpected plus and our family enjoyed the seating and a chance to play croquet. (We all tried the pushmower.) The whole place was really beautifully decorated to the decade of 1940....

Hello, I must say that during our stay in the Gettysburg we came upon this quaint gem. It made me feel so warm and cozy, yet elegant and sheik. I HIGHLY recommend Quite the Stir. I hope that though, when I pass back through,that it's still available. Just couldn't keep a beauty like this hidden. Thank you Quite the Stir...

Highly recommend this classic B&B! Our stay offered us all the comforts of home and was quite a very nice place to settle down and unwinde after touring the Battlefield. Added plus + was the decor, which was original, fun and truly remiscent of a time not ever forgotten.

Celebrated our anniversary at Quite the Stir this year and we already decided we will definitely stay here on all of our anniversaries and any chance we can get to Gettysburg.

We stayed at Quite The Stir in early July 2012 and found the guest house and amenities to be quite amazing. The house is filled with a charm, was immaculate, and we found ourselves more at home during this vacation than any other. Our kids enjoyed a chance to check out the history throughout the entire place. My wife and...

My husband and I planned to visit for the 150 Anniversary in July of next year. In fact, I booked multiple reservations in Gettysburg as we were planning early and knew hotels would book fast.

This place is simply wonderful. Great location... comfortable beds...lots of neat touches. AND that doesn't even include the incredible experience of being surrounded by times past. The owner is great to work with and made sure we had everything we needed. We will be sure to stay here again if we find our way back to Gettysburg.
