Cashtown Inn

This is one of many posts on our trip to Gettysburg last 4th of July. While we were there we drove to Cash Town to eat lunch at the historical Cash Town Inn. This is where Robert E Lee had his troops before they went into Gettysburg. He actually wanted to fight the battle there because the mountains were at his back. He had a headquarters at the Cash Town Inn which was a hotel at the time.
Over the years it was left empty & was scheduled to be torn down but a couple bought it, thank goodness, restored it & it is now a thriving B&B. They also have a restaurant there that is open to the public (not just the guests staying there), but you need to make reservations ahead of time.

We knew about the Cashtown Inn from an episode of the SciFi show Ghost Hunters. So we called before we left on our trip to reserve a table. The food was fresh & awesome! I had Cauliflower Bisque that was prepared from locally grown cauliflower & my husband had the Seafood Bisque...that was my favorite. I had a Crab Cake Sandwich with salad & to top it off, chocolate cake for dessert. Cashtown is only 8 miles from Gettysburg so worth the drive!

They also have rooms available for families, so if you are not afraid of ghosts (they have been seen there), it is a great location to stay. They actually say every building in Gettysburg has ghosts due to the war. For more posts on Gettysburg click on our "Family Vacations" label.
