Historic 1776 Dobbin House Tavern and Gettystown Inn Review

Overlooking the spot where Lincoln gave his Gettysburg Address, this inn has period furnishings and four-poster beds. There are also guest rooms in two adjacent buildings. The Dobbin House Tavern ($$–$$$) was built in 1776, making it the oldest building in town. American and Colonial fare such as baked king's onion soup and duckling roasted with local apples are served in the tavern's six rooms with fireplaces and antiques. You can dine in wing chairs in the parlor, take your meal in the spinning room, or have dinner in your room. There's also the more casual Springhouse Tavern, with sandwiches and other light fare.
