“Makes you feel like you're back in the 19th century, only with indoor plumbing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. We have been to Gettysburg many times, but this is the first time we ever stayed in town, and the Brafferton is the place to be! The innkeeper and her staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and breakfast is a real treat. We had a room at the top of the steps, with a bedroom and a sitting room. It's close to the center of town and we were able to walk to the ceremony and then continue on to explore part of the battlefield. We walked to bars and restaurants in town. I really like not having to drive, because the main streets can get crowded at times. Al in all, a great place to stay.

My fiance and I are repeat customers at the remarkable Brafferton Inn. It has everything we love from history and charm to delicious breakfasts and the most welcoming, accommodating staff. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The location is central and a short walk to many restaurants and shops. Brian, owner/innkeeper, even helped my fiance personalize his proposal by setting up some hometown items in the room before our arrival. The food is so amazing, I still rave about the lemon poppyseed puffs from our very first visit. We love the Brafferton Inn, and we will continue staying here year after year. Whatever your reason for staying, you will be sure to have wonderful memories here.

We had a wonderful time spending the night here and stayed in the Codori room which was so wonderful, and I had made a request to have certain things in the room upon arrival and all were met perfectly.

We will be back upon our next return, thank you for a wonderful experience and making things so perfect for a romantic getaway weekend.

Room Tip: There were no complaints what so ever, we stayed in the Codori Suite, not far from town for a nice n...

We've been to Gettysburg many times, and this is THE place to stay! Excellent hospitality, the best gourmet breakfast, terrific accomodations! They always went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable.

This is one of the oldest building in town, which means lots of atmosphere, a celebration of history, creaky floors, and high-ceilinged rooms. We stayed in the Battle room, which has a minie ball still embedded in the fireplace mantle. The room is street-side and picks up a fair amount of street noise, which worked for us but will not be for everyone. Rooms away from the street were also available. From here, exploring downtown Gettysburg is very easy. Your morning starts with a really nice breakfast and the staff are knowledgeable and helpful.

I stay here everytime I come to Gettysburg. There a lot to bed and breakfasts to stay but this this is my favorite.
Not only you get a big breakfast, its so feeling you would not want lunch.
Try staying here. You WILL LIKE IT.

My wife and I wanted to meet friends from New Hampshire. My wife found the inn on line and reserved a two bedroom suite. The accommodations were wonderful and we all had a great experience. The inn is in the middle of town, an easy walk anywhere. They gave us a devious breakfast and good recommendations for things to do. I look forward to going back.
