We traveled with friends, another couple, to visit the Gettysburg National Military Park. We spent 3 nights at the Barker House, and could not have been happier with the hosts and the B&B. The beds were very comfortable and the house interesting and charming. Elizabeth and Bob are as friendly as can be, and quick to make knowledgable recommendations about restaurants and things to do. We had a delicious breakfast each day. The breakfast was so large, we skipped lunch every day. When I had a medical problem one day and stayed at the B&B while my wife and friends went to Gettysburg, Elizabeth and Bob were very concerned, and made lunch for me so I would not have to go out. They are just very caring people. The location was perfect for visiting the National Military Park, which is a short drive from New Oxford. We will sometime return to New Oxford for more touring in the area, and will stay with Bob & Elizabeth when we do.

Thank you Bob and Elizabeth for a great stay! Beautiful home and incredible breakfasts! It feels like you are staying at a friends home not just a hotel. The furnishing are very much from the period of the home.

Our first Bed and Breakfast experience and it was wonderful from the start.
We came with our friends and the four of us never expected the warm and heartful welcome we received. From the moment we arrived two of the sweetest people greeted us and began telling the house history. Elizabeth and Bob as we know them now, are not only attentive to your needs they cook a great breakfast as well,and what a beautiful table setting! Our nights were spent on a lovely porch exchanging our days events and hearing stories of the historical area and many interesting happenings that come with running a B&B. We hated to say good-bye as we came as guests and felt we left as FRIENDS. Jim and Mary

Thank you for the kind words. We really enjoyed having you as guest. It was especially nice for me as we had Orange County, NY ties. Lots of good memories.

Meeting folks like you and making new friends is what Innkeeping is all about.

We look forward to seeing you again.

You can't beat New Oxford as an easy access point to Gettysburg, Adams County, and Hanover. The other reviewers are correct - Bob and Elizabeth are great hosts and fountains of knowledge about the area. You'll find there is a lot to do in the area; we spent three days there and didn't do everything we wanted to do. I would highly recommend the Barker House as an alternative to staying in Gettysburg and we hope to return there soon.

Bob and I are very pleased you had an enjoyable experience.
Yes, there is a lot to do. September has the WWII Re-enactment with 100+Germans occupying New Oxford.
November 22 is Chamberlain weekend. Check out our web site or call for more information.

We wanted a bit of quiet as we began a frantic road trip vacation and we were not disappointed.
Elizabeth and Bob were gracious hosts! And they were so attentive to our needs that we felt as though we were staying with friends. Breakfast each morning was a treat and so hearty that a two meal day would have been very possible. Their home is a lesson in history and well maintained. We were close to everything we wanted to do and far enough away to avoid the hustle and bustle of a tourist town. So much to do was within walking distance in New Oxford. This was the perfect place to stay. Richard and Jacquelyn

Room Tip: From a cottage to charming rooms, the choices are premium. Stairs are part of each sleeping choice.
