Thank you for considering Red PatchBed & Breakfast as a place to... stay in Gettysburg. Gail and I would like to welcome
you to Red Patch. As you can see, we have a historic home, an interesting history and a somewhat unique location as we
are located in the National Park, and on the Battlefield, right on Confederate Avenue just down from the Seminary.
Red Patch is not only a Bed and Breakfast, it is our home as well. We hope you will enjoy the use of the common areas of the house with us. The Living Room, Victorian Parlor, Dining Room and the Library as well as the privacy of your bedroom. There are always a variety of coffees, espresso, teas, cookies and hot chocolate available in the Butler’s Pantry. You are free to enjoy our company and that of your fellow guests should you choose to.
When the weather is right, we offer the great relaxation opportunity of “porching”. Sit and relax on our front porch with a view of Confederate Ave, and the Witness Wall and Cannons across the street marking the 1st day’s action of the Battle of Gettysburg. Right here, Dorsey Pender’s troops charged the wall which was defended by Union troops before the line broke and they retreated back to Cemetery Hill.
In the evening, you can just sit, relax, and let your mind wander back in time and soak in the history that is all around you
If you enjoy the outdoors, you are already in the Park! Just walk down the front steps and turn right toward the Seminary or left towards the McMillan House, North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia Monuments, or walk towards the wall.
Experience the Battlefield as few others can by staying at Red Patch, the summer home of the late Brevet Major General Charles Collis. Commander of Collis’s Zouaves (114th Pennsylvania) and recipient of the Congressional Medal of Honor.
