COVID-19 Update

As always, the safety of our Dobbin House staff, visitors and community is our top priority.  Consistent with Pennsylvania Governor Wolf’s call to combat the spread of Covid19, the Dobbin House Tavern, Gettystown Inn Bed and Breakfast and Country Curiosity Store will temporarily close to in-house dining and will reopen as soon as allowed by the governor. All reservations and events for the near future are canceled.

However, we are OPEN with a TAKE OUT MENU that combines your favorite dishes from the Springhouse Tavern and the Alexander Dining Rooms.  Our no-contact ordering is as safe as it is easy to enjoy the delicious Dobbin House meals you are craving. We are currently open Thursday 4pm - 8pm, Friday 4pm - 8pm, Saturday 11:30am - 8pm, and Sunday 11:30am - 7pm. 

Hurrah!  As of Friday, May 22 Governor Wolf has opened up our county and we can now move about more freely.  Restaurants are still limited to Take Out only but more businesses in Gettysburg are now open.  Be assured we are continuing to take all necessary measures to use best practices in deep cleaning our locations with disinfectants and are following all protocols set by the Center for Disease Control.

The health and well-being of our guests, staff and community is paramount.  As the current crisis unfolds, we will continually evaluate the situation, taking into account guidance from the CDC,  Pennsylvania agencies and local officials.  Updates and changes will be posted to this page.

Guests that have reservations at the Dobbin House and Bed and Breakfast during the closure
period may reschedule their visits for a later date or receive a full refund.  Call the Dobbin House (717-334-2100) for rescheduling, refunds, questions or concerns.

This closure has gone on so long.  We are lonely and miss you and look forward to the day when we  welcome you back to the Dobbin House.
Until then, may the Lord bless you and keep you safe.
