As a friend and psychic medium of the Farnsworth House, I happen to be well-known here due to my abilities. I have stayed overnight a few times and hope to stay again. Every time I visit Gettysburg, PA, a town I love, something always happens, and it never ceases to amaze me. I've had many different encounters for as long...

We went to have a ghost tour and get Away. The Ghost Tour Guide failed to show up. the room was dusty and we had to fix the toilet twice ourselves. We were very disappointed. We also did the Mourning Tour which was okay but kinda disappointing also. Dinner at Sweeney's (on SIte) was very nice and fair priced. We...

My husband and I are amateur ghost hunters so while visiting relatives in Gettysburg we booked a night at this historic inn. We were impressed with the period furnishings in the McFarland room and were told a few stories by the young lady who led us upstairs. The bedside table had accounts of past guests experiences with coins stacking themselves,...

They make much to do about this bring haunted, but that's it. The food is average. The place is certainly not haunted. All of the beds are 18th century style and very high. Not good for older people or infirmed who don't want to climb high. The Lincoln room has no door for the bathroom. The staff was friendly. I...

I stopped in the Farnsworth House with my lady friend for a drink after a day of sightseeing in Gettysburg. Oh boy, was it a mistake. The bartender was absolutely terrible. Let me elaborate. First, when we sat down at the bar, we waited a long time to be greeted and served. Second, the bartender was loudly discussing her problems...

Stayed in the Jennie Wade room which was comfortable and filled with period decorations. There are journals filled with writings of experiences of past guests that are interesting to read, you can add to them if so inclined. Breakfast, included in the price, was enjoyed in the dining room. Eggs over easy, toast, bacon and home fries were delicious. Coffee...

Every visit has been phenomenal! The food is consistently delicious and with generous portions. The staff are pleasant, friendly, and accommodating, reflecting the ambiance of the historic character of the Inn and the town itself. During the warmer months there's a wonderful, cobbled outside area to enjoy your meals. The inside reflects even more of gracious dining. The prices are...

We are 10 hours away and the only thing we could think about was getting to the Farnsworth ! The staff, Inn, and food are OUTSTANDING. Paranormal hunts right from the Inn are a must. Great location...right in the middle and walk to everything. We were there in 2013 and 2016 and will return again.....

Friendly staff, Nice Room. Ghost Hunters: I put my ghost hunting stuff in the closet area. While I was doing that, I heard a woman's voice. Was it a ghost? Not unless they know about cell phones. Floors creak. Walls thin. Last morning I was laying in bed and heard loud scratching. Ghost? Animals in the walls? Guy next door....
