5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

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.

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

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. Me and my husband stayed in the McFarland Room while my kids stayed in the Sweney Room. The McFarland rooms bed was very hard and extremely tall (good thing they had a step ladder or... More

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

I made a reservation here and then had to cancel it for health reasons more than 3 months in advance. First of all they billed the entire stay to my credit card 3 months before my stay. Then they said they would cancel it and give me a credit and they billed me again plus a $100 cancelation fee, over... More

I was very upset when I read this review. There are a few things that are correct here and a few that are not so I feel the need to clarify, This gentleman did indeed book a reservation. Our policy at the Inn is that full payment is required for a reservation at the time of booking so we did... More

We did not stay the night at the Inn but did partake in having a quick lunch on the patio of this beautiful establishment. Our server was prompt at coming to our table and taking our order. Our food came to us in a reasonable time and tasted very good. My wife found her new drink here called Angry Orchard... More

Stayed here when went to Gettysburg for the fact it was "haunted" we had the Custer room. The room itself along with most of the rooms are made to be period pieces, full of vintage items, beds and furniture to get the 1800's feel. We didn't see any ghosts however the people in the room next to us claim to... More
