Our last visit left us dreaming of our next stay at QuiteThe Stir Bungalow. We were not disappointed, during our return visit to Gettysburg last week. Once again we are thinking of our next visit. Jolene and her staff personalized the Bungalow for us from rose petals in the bedroom to Glenn Miller playing the soft sounds of the 40's... More

Jolene makes you feel so welcome. It's amazing, but when you rent the home, you are the only couple there! It's your own little retreat. She encourages sifting through boxes, trying on the vintage hats and clothing. Very close walking to the square. Beautifully decorated and landscaped!

Stayed there for a night with my wife while in town for a wedding. We absolutely loved Quite the Stir and were sorry we didn't stay longer. This is really more than a Bed and Breakfast, as you get the entire house to yourself. There are two bedrooms, a study, kitchen, dining room, living room, and two screened in porches.... More

From start to finish this sweet house impressed us more than we imagined any place ever would. Jolene really was an extraordinarily accomodating hostess and her research on history showed here. Quite the Stir stands out as the best, most uniquely and relaxing stay we've ever enjoyed on any trip.

For lodging in Gettysburg that provides lavish comfort, exquisite attention to detail and unparalleled privacy in an ambiance of home-away-from-home comfort, Quite the Stir bungalow B&B is quite the right choice! My husband and I stayed at "QTS" from October 28 to Nov. 3rd, 2009. It was seven days of vacation that was greatly enhanced by our lodging at QTS.... More

An accidental find on our last minute trip led us to Quite the Stir. We fell in love with the inn.It offered up quite a pleasurable experience of both luxury lodging and engaging history. Immaculate surroundings and presentation was beautiful.

This is a tribute to WWII in the form of a Bed and Breakfast. Splendid! The guest book reads with some who's who travelers and some write they are keeping Quite the stir a Gettysburg secret for themselves. Seriously, everyone needs to take a look at what a typical All-American Home of the forties looked like (with movie star charisma... More

This is the Crowning Jewel of Gettysburg places to stay, we've all got to admit. An early Christmas reunion with family took us here after seeking a lodging that offered us just enough room to gather and celebrate. Plus, the web description offered an innovating clever theme to visit midway with our family in another state. And, true to the... More

Amazing! That describes our suprise at this sweetheart of a B&B. The comfort factor, truly romantic and privacy aspects in themselves are amazing. This cozy place puts immaculate on the map. With an apple crumb pie waiting for us, the innkeeper gave us an education and history of a true bungalow when she saw how amazed we were at this... More
