My girlfriend being interested in ghosts, I booked a room for us at Farnsworth House recently as it is billed as one of the most haunted places in Gettysburg, if not the entire state of Pennsylvania. Be advised, don't stay here if you are "dead" set on experiencing paranormal activity as we did not at all the night that we... More

We stayed prior to Christmas and based our entire stay on getting a reservation here. We aren't much of the "ghost hunters", but I can assure you this place will make you believe. The weather was incredible for the time of the year so we enjoyed the strolls through town and the fire pit at the outdoor bar in the... More

We stayed two nights in the Lincoln room. We decided that it was an inconvenient room for a B&B. First, the lighting was rather low; good thing we had our Iphones. The location of the room was fine, it was not in the brick portion of the property. Our issues were: 1. there was only one medium size rocker in... More

We LOVED this place!!! Not only is the staff so friendly and hospitable but the food was wonderful! They serve all these little extras that we weren't expecting like pickled watermelon rind (which was new and SO DELICIOUS) and spoon pudding (?) Which I need the recipe for because it too was amazing. I had their game pie, again just... More

I stayed here for 2 nights while in Gettysburg. The experience of staying at a location that was there during the Civil War was a HUGE draw!! This was my 1st time at Farnsworth House. My sister liked that idea, plus the idea that the place is haunted. The rooms are very small, beds are not very comfy. Its a... More

We had a great experience at this bed and breakfast. Ideal location, great food in tavern and dining room. Breakfast was consistently well prepared. Kayla, our waitress for breakfast was wonderful! The tavern has real replicas from the 1993 movie Gettysburg with movie playing all the time. This really enhanced the whole "Gettysburg" experience for us.

This was our 3rd trip staying at the Farnsworth House, the first 2 times in the 1990's. We used to love it there! Things have really changed for the worse. Our "garden" room was right next to the door to the Sweeney Tavern, so people came and went all night and several times people tried the door knob - I... More

Food is very good and service is excellent. Have been taking large groups here for years and they always accommodate. Apple pie is delicious. Located in the heart of Gettysburg. Be sure to note the civil war bullet holes on the side of the building
