We spent two nights at the Farnsworth House and the best thing I can say about the stay is that it's over!! Our room was disgusting!! When I look up in a corner and see cobwebs and dust on light fixtures I know that surfaces may be clean where you can see them but it's the other areas you can't... More

This is not only a quaint bed and breakfast, which we wish we had stayed at, it is also a wonderful restaurant and beer garden! We ate dinner at this wonderful, historic property and had not only amazing "period" foods, but a lovely server with an amazing sense of humor! Stella was a delight and made our dinner all the...

This was our first stay at a bed and breakfast. We were very pleased. We stayed in the Jeremy room which was small but comfortable. Having two doors lead into the room was a bit odd but it wasn't an issue. Kayla was very friendly at breakfast and we enjoyed our food options. I left stuffed every morning. We tried... More

Overall the staff at the Inn were fantastic and helpful, we had breakfast and dinner at the Inn also and was completely satisfied with the meals and service. The rooms were comfortable but unfortuntely the bathrooms are outdated ( circa 70' / 80's ) We also wish there wasn't so much noise driving by the Inn , between dump trucks,school... More

I just spent the night here this past summer, Aug, 2014. I was treated extremely well. Everyone treats their guests as if they were family. It was very comfortable. I was even scolded, well sort of, in a motherly way by a great lady as I checked in, for not having dinner! I was in a hurry to be part... More

Just returned home from our Gettysburg trip. We had an excellent stay at the Farnsworth House. It was quiet this time as far as ghosts are concerned- a few little things but not like other times we've been there. But ghost experiences don't always happen the same way. Either way, the service was excellent and we could have done our... More

Thank you very much for your wonderful review. I would have to agree with you about negative reviews. We can not be all things to all people and therefore we do not try to be. We simply try to give each guest a memorable and positive experience. You mentioned several of our staff members in your review and I am... More

I absolutely love this inn! When I called to make my reservation, Tony was so helpful. He didn't make me feel rushed. Then when I checked in, he actually showed me some of the rooms that weren't occupied. It was so nice of him to take the time to do that. He explained how some objects are moved during the... More

My friends and I visited the Tavern for lunch and within a few hours two of us were horribly sick. Both of them ate the same item. we called the Tavern to advise them of our concerns and were told that they would not do anything as no one else called to complain. I would NEVER eat at this establishment... More

We stayed in the Lincoln room. Horrible experience. Hot august day, the AC did not work. We ended up leaving in the middle of the night as we couldn't take it anymore. There was a horrible odor in the room for most of the night. Smelled like a sewer issue. Gave my wife and I headaches.

I was very troubled to hear of your experience at our Inn . The Lincoln room is one of our deluxe guest rooms and one of the most popular we have here. When a guest has an issue I would assume that you would draw it to the staffs attention. We have Guest Service Representatives on duty daily from 9... More

Where do I begin? I had booked the Sara Black room (Extremly noisey, on the side that faces the street) in January and a day before we were to arrive I checke the website to see what the room had to offer us. I noticed the price was $20 cheaper a night, we booked it for 4 nights, so that's... More

I am sorry about the issues you had during your stay here at the Farnsworth House. We did indeed run a special in August for any room booked DURING the month of August. It did clearly state on our website that prior bookings were excluded from that offer. I apologize for the confusion. As far as the issue with your... More
