This B&B/Restaurant has got to be the biggest rip off we have ever experienced. The service was awful, the room filthy, the air conditioning didn't work and it was overpriced! All they care about are their ghost tours. Everyone was so horribly rude to us, yet everywhere else in town, the business owners were cordial. We about roasted to the... More

I'm shocked about some of the reviews I have read about this place as our experience was wonderful. We had 2 rooms in the newer portion of the inn...the Custer room and the Jennie Wade room. The bathrooms had doors and the rooms were clean. The free breakfast was very good and we did eat at the tavern one night... More

Fortunately, I did not stay at the Farnsworth Inn as a guest but made the unfortunate decision to dine there with my mother....Let me say, first and foremost- We will not be back!! The waitstaff was good, but the food was absolutely disgusting... They start you off with pickled watermellon rines and some kind of bread soup that is only... More

Everything you need to know before you stay at the Farnsworth...We stayed 2 nights in the Sara Black room to attend the paranormal investigation. I would not do it again. Our room was like a fire trap. There was a broken outlet and the outlets that did work had all the lights plugged into old extension cords. There are no... More

The hotel is haunted, no doubt. The paranormal night was a bit hokey, too crowded (23) and everyone was encouraged to speak a lot which only caused the ghosts to quiet down or go away. We connected with a ghost in the upstairs sitting room. He was calm, but persistent. The light meter registered 2 and 3 lights intermittently for... More

Our stay was amazing! Nice room, nice people,...but unfortunatly we were there during the mega snow storm of the year (3 FEET OVER NIGHT!),so everything was closed in town and at our hotel, but we had fun anyway. We stayed in the Eisenhower room, and something really creapy happened to us. Me and my mom were getting ready to leave... More

The staff was friendly, the food was delicious. The only room for improvement is that the bathroom shower could be cleaner. I went with the intentions of getting creeped out, but I am hard to scare. Well, I had to experience it for myself. Footsteps near my bed for hours, and something shoved the corner of the bed where I... More

My wife and I first stayed at the Farnsworth House in June of 2004. We were in the Jennie Wade room (now called the Eisenhower room). The first night there was very audible footsteps in our room, right around our bed for 15-20 minutes! The second night was freaky! We were sitting in the sunroom wathing TV, (rooms then had... More

We stayed at the Farnsworth two years in a row( 2007,2008). Admittedly, we were drawn somewhat by the stories of paranormal happenings on the property. We have stayed in the Sweeney room and the Sara Black. This inn does have a charm to it. It also has some quirks. I think having a curtain instead of a bathroom door adds... More
