My wife and I spent the weekend of February 22nd with Eileen & Dennis at the Lightner Farmhouse. It was an awesome experience. They are such great hosts, great cooks, and so accommodating. We were celebrating the anticipation of our first child and I asked Eileen to put together a small care package for my expecting wife. For breakfast on... More

We stayed 3 nights at The Lightner Farmhouse in May 2013. This was our first trip to Gettysburg. The B&B was close to the battlefield and close to town. We stayed in the Chestnut Room. Our hosts, the Hoovers, were very knowledgeable and helpful about area attractions and were willing to give helpful hints. Breakfasts were delicious and presented nicely.... More

Our family of 5 had a fabulous 4 night stay at the Farmhouse over Christmas 2013. I had looked on the internet for somewhere special for Christmas as we were holidaying from Australia! I found a few places but the Farmhouse stood out from all the others. My husband and I were in The Oak Suite and our 3 children... More

My husband and I spent two nights at Lightner Farmhouse last week. We were visiting Gettysburg National Park for the first time. The location of the Farmhouse couldn't be better. Very convenient to both the Park and the downtown area. The owners were warm and welcoming and very helpful. Our room (the Maple room) was quiet and comfortable. Delicious breakfasts.... More

We spent one night at Lightner Farmhouse recently. We really enjoyed the beautiful home and grounds. The owners took us through the house and gave us a brief history which was really interesting. We hiked out behind their house to the brook, which was very nice. Breakfast was delicious. I would recommend this B&B to anyone.

My wife and I decided to visit Gettysburg for the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, Never having stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before, we had no idea what to expect. I never told my wife that I booked the Lightner B&B, she was so shocked when I pulled into the drive way. We were greeted by their son... More

We were greeted warmly by Eileen as we entered the house. She gave us and another couple a quick tour of the home, and the history behind it. Our room was the Maple Room upstairs. It was cozy and comfortable for our two night stay. The room was very clean with a lot of attention to detail like the crock... More

We had such a pleasant stay with Dennis and Eileen, they were kind and caring, wanting to accommodate us in any way they could. Our whole experience was superb. To get away from the noise, hustle and bustle of the Gettysburg crowd was fantastic. Their location was close and easy to find, definitely a plus. My husband and I were... More

We were extremely pleased with the facilities and our hosts (Eileen and Dennis). The breakfasts were delightfully prepared by Eileen and Don (her son). We all enjoyed Betsy, who helps there and also does paranormal tours (for guests only...)... Whether you are a believer or not, it is definitely a worthwhile evening. Great location. We will certainly stay here when... More
