The Dobbin House Boasts Several Dining Options

As a lover of history and delicious food, I'm thrilled to tell you about the Dobbin House Tavern in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This place is steeped in charm and offers a fantastic dining experience.

Stepping inside, I'm given a choice of dining options to fit my mood. Maybe I want the casual atmosphere of the Springhouse Tavern or the cozy pub vibe. For a more elegant meal, the Alexander Dobbin Dining Room calls my name, with its six rooms and seven fireplaces! No matter where I sit, I know I'm in for a treat – the menu boasts spit-roasted chicken, mouthwatering drunken scallops, and Maryland Colony crabcakes.

But the Dobbin House transcends mere dining. It's a slice of living history. I could spend hours exploring the cocktail bar, the country curiosity store, or even the spinning room. Even more fascinating are the historical elements woven into the building – the grand staircase, the area's first library, and even a secret hiding spot from the days of the Underground Railroad.

If you're a history buff like me, don't miss the free tours offered every Sunday. These hour-long guided tours are packed with fascinating stories. Plus, you can explore on your own and see original details like the railings, sections of unrenovated walls, and even bullet holes left over from the Civil War.

All these experiences have earned Dobbin House well-deserved awards. We're talking the Mobil Guide's highest accolades, plus recognition for the best B&B and the area's top menu. They even make what many consider the region's best deli sandwiches! With five charming guest rooms and its historic restaurant, you won't find a more unique place to stay and dine in Gettysburg.
