My husband and I so enjoyed our visit with Alexandria and George at their very lovely B&B. As a B&B owner myself, I have nothing but praises and highly recommend 'THE RAPAHEL INN' for your stay. The location is excellent. The rooms are very comfortable and the hosts go way beyond their duty to make sure your every need is satisfied!! They are a wealth of information about the town of Gettysburg, with very good advise on local restaurants, shopping, museums, antiquing, battlefield etc. The breakfasts were delicious and the presentation beautiful! The hosts are in their element and it is obvious in their warmth and genuine hospitality. We also so enjoyed Heidi; her quiet presence and gentleness were also welcoming! We have traveled to Gettysburg at least 6 times( or more) over the years and this was the best!! Thank you for a memorable weekend!

My husband and I had a wonderful weekend stay at the Raphael Inn. We were celebrating his birthday with a weekend in Gettysburg. We had never been there so didn't know what to expect, but our two nights at the Raphael Inn were really the best part of our trip. It was the comfortable, welcoming and beautiful home away from home.

My Dad and I stayed about a week ago and it was great. Alexandra and George (and Hedi the wonder dog) just try and make it the best stay ever and it really was!!! Best place to stay if you are looking for a bed and breakfast that's for sure!

Talk about an experience! This is the best bed and breakfast I've ever been to, and it will be the standard for all future ones.
* For my review with integrated photos, go to http://meponine.blogspot.com/2012/07/b-raphael-inn.html. I'm having trouble getting photos into this review on TripAdvisor.
I happened to stay in 2 different rooms during my stay. Both rooms were meticulously decorated, well furnished, and truly offered the B&B experience of a lifetime. Walking distance to town center, and 2 cute dogs to keep you entertained when lounging around. Parking either in driveway or on street via a guest pass the inn supplies.
First is the Evangeline room, which is freshly painted in this gorgeous purple with a theme of flowers and birds. It's perpetual spring in this room. The view from the rocking chair in the room revealed the wonderful ceiling work, giving a modern and refreshing feel. The white bird cage is a nice accent against the bold paint color, and many butterflies adorn its surface.
On the dresser is an old style radio that can actually play cassette tapes, and the inn keepers provided various music tapes for your listening enjoyment. Also on the dresser is a nice lamp, with a glass dragon fly hanging off of its edge. With the main ceiling light off, you can really see the line shine through the glass and provide a certain air of magic.
The curtains were hand made with a semi-see through printed layer and a plain layer that allows light in while providing privacy.
There were little above door village house decorations on the door frame between the room and the bathroom, and there was even a mini park bench with a mini giraffe to the right of the dresser.
This is true attention to details!
The main entry way is styled with a Paris cafe theme. In other B&Bs, the breakfast is just basic continental. At the Raphael Inn, be prepared for a feast for both the eyes and the mouth.
On my first day I had an early morning, so couldn't stay for sit down breakfast. The inn keepers made a special effort to pack me a "boxed lunch" that consisted of a sausage & egg bagel sandwich, a chocolate muffin, an apple, a bottle of water, and a bottle of orange juice! I didn't even realized until later the apple was both cored and cut in half for my convenience. Such hospitality!
The next day I was able to enjoy sit down breakfast and was presented with a gorgeous fruit plate before the main course of waffles and bacon arrived.
The Raphael Inn does not take breakfast lightly, and they are very good at it indeed. I think I had the best 4 days of breakfast I've ever had on any vacation I've ever taken here.
It happened to be with the scheduling of things, I needed to switch to a different room during my stay. I moved into the California Rose Suite which had a king size bed and a futon couch. The bed had a foam layer and I melted right in.
This room has a nautical theme, and used treasure chests as night stands as well as the coffee table next to the futon. The little sitting area by the bed has mock fences as if on the beach, and the closet had a wall paper reminiscent of being in a wood hut. There were little "treasures" all over the room, including a small treasure chest filled with "gold coins" (werther's originals). The book ends on the coffee table were nautical themed, and even the books were seaworthy adventure books like Robinson Crusoe, and Treasure Island.
Every last detail was accounted for, and my experience at the B&B really could not have been better.
