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

Stayed at this establishment due to the historical significance of the building, and also thought it would be somewhat exciting to stay in a purported 'very haunted' room. The room itself is very tiny (you must expect this though, as it is in the original portion of the building, and has been unaltered), and the décor appears to be original... More

Thank You for staying with us. I am sorry to hear that you had issues with the noise in your room. The Sara Black room is our most popular room and indeed it is located in the front of the property facing Baltimore Street so the noise level is a bit more than in other portions of the house. I...

We stayed just 1 night at the Farnsworth Inn and that was 1 night too much!!! We booked the Custer Room in advance and it was a huge disappointment. First of all the room is located next to the garden, I.e. You can't open any curtains let alone the window until the garden closes at 11pm if you don't want... More

I am not sure how to respond to this review. It is unfortunate that nothing was said about any of the problems this couple incurred until check out. It is true that this room is located outside in our Garden Area and we do serve dinner out there so you will see Guests from your window. As far as the... More

We stayed at the Farnsworth House inn on July 29th -30th. First time we stayed in a B & B let alone a haunted place.

Thank You for your review. It is always great to hear when a guest has a great experience. At the present time we do not offer any packages for Ghost Tours but that is certainly food for thought. We hope you will stay with us again in the future. More
