We stayed in the 1757 room. It was a large suite with everything you could want. The staff were very friendly. Everything was clean and well kept. We had a great time talking with the owner and the staff. They are very professional and the historic nature of the Inn was great. The food was terrific for both breakfast and... More

We stayed in the J.E.B. Stuart room which was quite large with a massive modern bathroom. Everything was very clean and the staff was extremely friendly. It was only a short drive to Gettysburg and given the high cost of bland "chain" hotels in Gettysburg, the Fairfield Inn was a real value. We were there to attend a Civil War... More

The Inn is as comfortable & inviting as the first time we stayed there a number of years ago. The age & uniqueness of the structure make up for any lack of modern amenities (excluding the TV), which we really don't miss to begin with. We stayed in the Major Strarr room this time and the sleep was perfect, which... More

We had a great time at the Fairfield Inn. We stayed in the Patrick Henry room. The room was clean and comfortable. John Kramb, the owner, is a great guy. I really enjoyed talking with him.

Stayed at the inn with a group of friends, which allowed us the inn to ourselves. My room was comfortable, especially loved the bath towels. Had a small problem with the tv, but was quickly corrected. The breakfast was very good and more than what I expected. Because this is an old inn, you do have some uneven floors and... More

We stayed at the lovely Historic Fairfield Inn for two nights, Tues 3/18/14 & Wed 3/19/14. Though it was our first time at the Historic Fairfield Inn, inn keeper John Kramb and Terry the chef, made us feel like old friends returning once again. As we were the only guests on these two off-season, midweek nights, we kind of had... More

We enjoyed our stay...the dinner theater magic show was excellent. The location is great if you want to stay in an historic property while visiting local wineries and Gettysburg. Our stay was comfortable for a bed and breakfast.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Historic Fairfield Inn offers an enticing, warm, unique and memorable experience. It has been in continuous operation since 1757, and is one of the five oldest continuously operating inns in the country. Our rooms and suites are sumptuously decorated, and our food delicious. The restaurant is noted for our Chicken and Biscuits, and our Ham and Bean Soup (which is the same recipe as was served to the retreating Confederate forces on July 4th, 1863). Visitors to the Historic Fairfield Inn include Patrick Henry, Thaddeus Stevens, Robert E. Lee, and Mamie Eisenhower. This is a "must stop" destination for visitors to Gettysburg. ... more   less
