A good October!

This has been a good October for The Brickhouse Inn B&B. It's usually our busiest month, but we were hit this year by the government shut-down that closed the National Park. Although some guests cancelled most of them came anyway and had a great time. The public road through the park were open and guides took tours. Fortunately, the Visitor Center remained open, because it is owned by the Gettysburg Foundation.

Last October (2012) we were affected by Hurricane Sandy, which caused quite a lot of cancellations. So neither 2012 nor 2013 have been as good for us as October 2011. However, this November will be a record for us, in terms of occupancy, and so will the whole year 2013.
