History lovers, beer buffs and families will love Gettysburg in Pennsylvania, for its idyllic hikes, breweries and famous battlefield sites, where the Civil War raged in 1863. There’s plenty for those with pets in tow, too, with dog-friendly trails, restaurants and wineries, even ghost tours. You’ll be guaranteed a warm welcome at these pet-friendly hotels, bookable with Culture Trip, as well.
This hotel, just outside downtown Gettysburg, has thought of everything. Guests at the hotel can enjoy a heated indoor pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre, games room and an on-site movie theatre screening the latest releases. When it’s time to explore further afield, a free shuttle service will whisk you downtown. Dogs under 50lb (22kg) are welcome for $30 (£22) a day.
It won’t break the bank to bring your pet to Gettysburg at this family-owned inn situated between Steinwehr Avenue and Baltimore Street. Pets can stay for just $20 (£14) a night in rooms which have wood-look flooring to guarantee hygiene. Ask for one on the first floor with a balcony and its own entrance so you can head out for walks without disturbing anyone.
It’s easy to explore the Gettysburg sights from this contemporary hotel at the crossroads of US 15 and US 30 in the Gateway Gettysburg Campus. Visit the National Military Park and Eisenhower National Historic Site, then enjoy the indoor pool, whirlpool and all-day restaurant serving Starbucks coffee. A maximum of two dogs per room are welcome for a nightly charge of $50 (£35).
Cats and dogs under 100lbs (45kg) can stay for $30 (£21) a night at this welcoming property off US Highway 15 and Route 97. There are plenty of places you can enjoy with your four-legged friend nearby including the Adams County Winery and Gettysburg National Military Park. Owners are looked after too with complimentary tea and coffee, a cosy fireplace-warmed lobby, indoor pool and freshly-baked cookies available all day.
This newly-built Best Western hotel is within walking distance of the Gettysburg National Military Park and Soldiers’ National Cemetery. Many rooms overlook the battlefield and Pickett’s Charge and there’s a fitness centre, indoor swimming pool, shop and laundry facilities. There’s no need to leave your pet at home while you get your history fix either: dogs up to 50lbs (23kg) are welcome for $30 (£21) a night and water bowls can be provided.
This budget hotel, off Routes 30 and 15, has all you need for a great stay in Gettysburg with your pet in tow. Two animals of up to 50lbs (23kg) can join you for just $12 (£8.50) a night and there are grassy areas on the property. Rooms have fridges and microwaves so you can cook basic meals without needing to find pet-friendly dining and all guests are entitled to a free, eight-item breakfast each morning.

Since you are here, we would like to share our vision for the future of travel - and the direction Culture Trip is moving in.
Culture Trip launched in 2011 with a simple yet passionate mission: to inspire people to go beyond their boundaries and experience what makes a place, its people and its culture special and meaningful — and this is still in our DNA today. We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way. That is why we have intensively curated a collection of premium small-group trips as an invitation to meet and connect with new, like-minded people for once-in-a-lifetime experiences in three categories: Culture Trips, Rail Trips and Private Trips. Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day. Our Rail Trips are our most planet-friendly itineraries that invite you to take the scenic route, relax whilst getting under the skin of a destination. Our Private Trips are fully tailored itineraries, curated by our Travel Experts specifically for you, your friends or your family.
We know that many of you worry about the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways of expanding horizons in ways that do minimal harm - and may even bring benefits. We are committed to go as far as possible in curating our trips with care for the planet. That is why all of our trips are flightless in destination, fully carbon offset - and we have ambitious plans to be net zero in the very near future.
