Hospitality Room and Living Room

Tillie Pierce House Inn is an upgrade from a traditional B & B to a Boutique-style Inn.

Our guests will enjoy our generous continental sit-down breakfast and our unique 24-hour Hospitality Room (conveniently located on the first floor off the formal dining room).

We offer a wide selection of Keurig coffee, tea, hot chocolate, milk, orange juice, and bottled water, as well as fresh baked muffins, breads, fresh fruit, granola, and pastries. And of course, a delicious mid-afternoon treat!

As so many of our guests run on different schedules while visiting Gettysburg, Having a hospitality area that guests can access at any time has shown to be preferred by travelers (at least in the context of the Tillie Pierce House Inn/Gettysburg). This alleviates the misconceptions about a “continental breakfast” as a full, sit-down, communal meal.

Our guests absolutely love the flexibility, convenience, and of course, the amenities!
