We originally made reservations to stay in February but the Inn cancelled our reservations. They didn't want to tell us why, but eventually stated it was because the Ghost Hunter's television show was filming. We were offered no compensation for the cancellation. We then rescheduled for May 2-4. When we checked in, we experienced the same issues as others. The... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Farnsworth House. The only problem we encountered was at check in . The woman behind the desk let us stand there without acknowledging us for about 6 minutes while she talked on the phone (my husband timed it as he was getting annoyed) I am assuming it was a personal call...

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...

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
