The Farnsworth House is truly haunted and the Shultz's are wonderful people. Libby the granddaughter should be running the whole place, but the grandfather, bless his heart, doesn't have a clue on how to run a business. He hires and trust people that shouldn't be working in hospitality. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone!!!

We had 4 of us at dinner, my dinner was very good, but my niece's was awful. It would have been nice to have taken the meal off the bill. The server was very nice, but very slow. We will more than likely not eat there again.

I loved the farnsworth! My husband and I, stayed in the Belle Boyd room. Loved it! The room was beautiful and the jacuzzi tub was awesome! We had to ask for service a lot because I guess it was the "off season" and staff must have been limited. If you are the type of person that depends on service or... More

I initially heard about The Farnsworth House Inn, in historic Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, through the Sci-Fy channel's "Ghost Hunters,"and have always intended a visit, so during my jaunt through the area, I made a point of stopping in to see the place first hand, and booking at least one night there, to experience my inner "Para-Norman,"and wander the hallways, of the...

First off I wanna say after reading all the past reviews I was a little worried about staying here. BUTAfter staying the night I will say... This place is Great!!! The staff was friendly and very informative about the local interests. Our Night began with a nice meal at Sweeny's pub. Then we did the ghost hunt. We had the... More

Myself and 6 friends stayed here this past weekend for my sisters bridal party trip. We have been to Gettysburg before, but never stayed overnight so the Farnsworth House was our first choice. We made our reservations 4 months in advance. Carrie in the office was phenomenal with helping me plan everything we wanted to do from the ghost tours... More

The amount of history surrounding this property is amazing. The owner provided a private tour for my myself and my husband which was so informative. This man has more Civil War knowledge and stories than anyone I've ever met. This family has devoted their lives to the town of Gettysburg and to this house. Not sure if people who are... More

I've been to Gettysburg numerous times and have always grabbed food at the Farnsworth Inn and have always wanted to stay there. I looked at the prices and was surprised how affordable it was especially since it's located in the heart of the town within walking distance of almost anything. They also have a parking lot which I found very... More

First of all I have to admit that I did not do enough research on this place before making our reservation. So, I take some of the responsiblilty for my dissapointment. With that being said... I hate to say that this place gets a thumbs down in the aspect of being a bed & breakfast. Let alone a haunted b... More

Let me begin my saying that my husband and I have enjoyed many good meals and fun times at your establishment over the last few years. It was always a highlight of our trips to Gettysburg. However, things have really changed. Saying I was disappointed in our visit on September 4, 2013 is such an understatement. We had built up... More
