“Great Inn”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

My wife and I stayed at Swope Manor March 13th - 16th. What a great place to stay.The Inn is beautifully decorated, and Van Richards ( our host) was great. He gave us a tour of the inn when we arrived, and explained the history of Swope Manor. We stayed in the Dorothy Suite, which we highly recommend, there is some road noise, but nothing that will keep you awake at night. The food was very good. The location of Swope Manor could not have been better, within walking distance of everything. The parking garage is located one block behind the manor. Our next trip to Getyysburg will include a stay at Swope Manor.

Room Tip: Swope Manor location on York street ( Route 30) will have some traffic, as well as the fact that iti...

The Swope Manor was a cozy, romantic bed & breakfast. We have been to many of these but by far this has been our favorite. Van the innkeeper was kind enough to take time and welcome us into this this historic home. We loved every second we where there.

Our stay at Swope Manor was absolutely wonderful! The rooms were beautifully decorated with ornate antique furniture and the impeccable service makes this inn a definite return stay when we visit Gettysburg again!

My husband and I stayed at Swope Manor for New Years Eve. What a great choice for a place to stay! The rooms are immaculate, the food is good, and the entire place is very welcoming - like the inkeeper, Van. He is a knowledge trove of the history of the house, which was fascinating to us since we love history. They are located only 2 blocks from the square so it's close to all the activities that were occurring. We are already talking about going back!

Room Tip: We were in the Southern Spice Room and friends were in the Miss Emily Rose Room. Both were beautifu...

Absolutely wonderful!! The Swope Manor B&B is outstanding, we stayed at the beginning of October for a long weekend. The house is recently renovated/ restored and is immaculate!! It is blocks away form the town square so its easy to walk to dinner and shops. All of the rooms are comfortable, spacious, and all include a private bath. Vaughn was very welcoming and happy to help you in any way. We will definitly be back!!

This is an amazing property. Recently opened in May, not one detail is overlooked. The hospitality is second to none. We were going to Gettysburg for their annual Holiday House Tour. Swope Manor was on the tour and we were welcomed to arrive early to get the complimentary bands needed for the tour. Even with all the hustle and bustle of the day to come, Van the innkeeper greeted us and welcomed us very graciously. He took the time to give us a tour, tell us the history of the house and show us to our room. We stayed in the Miss Dorothy Suite which was very welcoming, clean and spacious. We got to see many of the other rooms, all were very nicely decorated, clean and inviting. Breakfast was delicious and a special dietary request was met. Parking is directly behind the building in a safe, cover parking garage. Great shopping and dining are only footsteps away from the front door. We try hard to stay in b&bs whenever we travel. This was by far the best one we have stayed at. If some street noise is a concern, request one of the many beautiful rooms not facing the street.

We stayed in the Lt. Pohlman Chamber for Remembrance Day weekend. The breakfasts were delicious and the room was beautiful. The B&B is right in the center of town with lots of restaurants and shops within walking distance. Van is very hospitable and made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would definitely stay here again, I would warn people with bad knees not to book this room because it is on the third floor with lots of steps. There are plenty of other gorgeous rooms that are either on first or second floor.
