Stayed at the Farnsworth House one night for my niece's 16th birthday. We booked four rooms for our group of 8 (Sweeney, Eisenhower, Shultz and Jeremy). All the rooms are appointed with beautiful antique furniture and very comfortable bedding and excellent breakfast included. I was disappointed there was no bathroom door in the Sweeney room. The staff was very welcoming... More

We stayed her twice, once in Sara black room and once in Lincoln room, both rooms were OK. The best part of the hotel is going down in basement for stories. Also did and dinner were they talked about the town at war time, that's was good to.

A group of us got together for girls night out and we had dinner in the Dinning room. It was fantastic!! Big servings and GREAT service and even more important, the food tasted great. The ambience of this place is really special. Because it is fine dinning, it is a little more pricy than I could afford to go to... More

Every time I'm in Gettysburg I have to visit the Farnsworth House Inn. My last visit, I stayed in the Sweeney Room. It is very tiny but no complaints there as the feel of the house is worth every minute. Expecting more paranormal activity, nothing worth mentioning other than I did smell a very strong floral scent a few times... More

Great stay. Beautiful furnishings. Excellent service. Tavern is just ok. Couldn't use the Dining room as it was booked. Close to all sights and scenery. Check in from Courtyard of log building next door. Would do it again!

We had dinner one night and then stay here another night. The dinner entre was quite good (some kind of game pie) but the apple sauce was a disappointment - seemed to be from a can or jar. Everything else seem authentic and was very good. The rooms are beautifully and eccentrically decorated, very "Civil War chic". My room was... More

We were told we HAD to come. It was awesome food. Don't know about that. We're 15 into a 630 reservation and the woman who is the person seating everyone is slow as molasses and its ridiculous and sad. Next time eat somewhere else.

Let me say, everyone was seriously SUPER friendly. They make you feel very welcome. The rooms are small, but nice. They actually gave us a choice even though we literally called hours before showing up. We had the Jeremy room which was supposed to be pretty active usually for paranormal activity. But sadly, we had none. The bed was comfortable... More

We decided to spend our last night in Gettysburg at the Farnsworth. Although I tried to do as much research as I could on the accommodations, I will know next time where the best rooms are. We stayed in the Jennie Wade room, which I didn't know at the time was not in the main brick house, it is by... More
