My boyfriend and I stayed in the Schultz room part of the original building, very Victorian era. It was really cool to stay at a place that has soooo much history to it. Its in walking distance of all of the shops and the square. If that wasn't enough, it was even cooler to stay in a haunted house

Loved the history of the building. Wait staff very friendly. The food was all delicious. (We ate in the dining area). Loved the Civil War period food/atmosphere. The pot pie and ham are both phenomenal. Will be back when in town.

If you want to feel the history surrounding you as you visit Gettysburg, then the Farnsworth House Inn is a good place to have dinner. Waiters are dressed in period clothes and the menu features some "Civil War" era food as well. We enjoyed the well appointed dining areas. The food was good and we really liked the unusual items...

On a recent tour, we had an included three course meal here. The service was prompt, friendly and efficient, and the food was delicious. The steak That I had was huge, tender and cooked perfectly. We had a " retired union soldier " as an after dinner speaker and he was exceptional. It was a great meal and a great... More

My girlfriend and I come to Gettysburg at least 1-2 times a month. And we always stay here. Not only are the workers nice but they go above and beyond. We stayed here for the first time for our anniversary and they gave us a free book about the house. The food is amazing. The rooms are all amazing. We... 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.
