I just went to the Farnsworth for lunch over the weekend, and as they brought me my check to sign my bill they gave me a Pilot Precise V5 pen to use. I love these pens and use them all the time in my classroom. Seriosuly, well done Farnsworth!!! Most places use cheapo Bic pens. I am definetely a customer... More

What a wonderful Bed and Breakfast. We have never stayed in one before. Everyone was very friendly. The tavern was great as well as the breakfast in the main house. The food was excellent and Jim gave a great ghost hunt tour. I would come stay here again in a heartbeat. Love, love, love this place!

We had no problems at check in, but were lucky that the owner happened to be right there to help along a new employee. Subsequent dealings with the front desk were also fine. Our room, the Sara Black Room, was nice--keeping in mind that this is a historic house. Yes, the floors creaked a bit, etc. but we found the... More

The worst over ever been treated with bringing groups to Gettysburg. Constant sales staff turn over and not one of them knowing what the other had said. You'd think a contract would count but it doesn't. If you book with them good luck. Hope it goes better for you.

What's all the buzz about? The ghost I guess. On a recent trip to Gettysburg we decided to have lunch at the Farnsworth House, and what a mistake!. After being seated it took 10 min. For out waitress to take our drink order. And why is it always "we are short a person today". Well to get to the point... More

The Farnsworth House is a true gem. It is steeped in history that you will want to unfold during your visit. Because of it's proximity to the Civil War battle, ghost fans will also love this place. The current owners have worked hard to maintain a period look and ambience and have done this successfully. All the rooms are different... More

Check-in was a breeze. We arrived two hours early and luckily our room was ready and we were allowed to check-in. Stayed in the Shultz room which is in back of original house. Had read in the little notebook in the room about the guy whose shirt went missing, but nothing happened while we were there. It was very cozy... More

First time in Gettysburg and had a wonderful stay at the Farnsworth House. I wanted a haunted experience, however the spirits were quiet the weekend I was there. My friends had an experience of hearing voices and was missing a shirt they laid out on the bed (gone), never found, waiting to see if it shows up sometime soon. The... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights in the Custer Room while visiting Gettysburg. My husband suggested staying there as he had previously visited Gettysburg as a child and wanted to stay at the Farnsworth because of it's history. The room was very cozy and the bed was comfortable. We ate at Sweeney's Tavern which is on property and the... More

We actually didn't get to try the food because the restaurant had no record of our reservation. It was a busy Saturday night and they simply could not seat us. That is disappointing but understandable. It is, however, unforgivable to be called a liar by the manager who refused to believe we had actually made reservations.
