“Excellent!”
Reviewed June 12, 2013

Stayed in the Old Orchard Guest House for three days in June 2013. Superb location and superior accommodations. It was so nice having the entire house to ourselves. Spacious garage and nice, cozy garden were especially nice surprises. Checking in was easy and convenient, and we had excellent communications with Brafferton staff as needed. This location was top notch. Super convenient for exploring the battlefield, town and surroundings. An easy walk to shops, restaurants and in-town attractions. Very clean, comfortable and spacious.

Room Tip: With the Old Orchard Guest House, you get the whole house. Excellent for families or two couples tra...

We are so glad you enjoyed our guest house, the Old Orchard. We renovated and opened the house in July of 2012, and have met many nice families, such as yourselves. Hopefully you can come visit us again in the future.

This was a nice stay - the service was good and the staff very helpful, and the location in the middle of town was very good. The room was a little tired, but quite good on the important points (shower, bed, etc.). We had a room in the back of the inn, and slept well with absolutely no noise.

Our family recently had the wonderful experience of staying at the Brafferton Inn. We were in Gettysburg for our daughter's graduation. I had planned way in advance and reserved 3 suites. The location allowed us to walk to most of the events, activities and restaurants we attended over the weekend. We were in a building just adjacent to the main inn which turned out to be great since we were in and out all weekend. The breakfasts were amazing. My youngest daughter was ready to move in! Great experience! Would highly recommend it!!

We stayed in the suite which had all the amenities of a 4* hotel. I liked the hardwood floors throughout and the new bathroom had a 5 spray shower with double sinks. There was Keurig coffee maker in the parlor and in our suite for that nice blast first or last enjoyment of the day. We never really stay in our place too long but to sleep but it was nice to get going on a large plate of food and start out the day with a good meal we did not have to think about finding. Large muffin, meat, eggs, potatoes, fruit juice and coffee. Made 3 different ways each day for a variety. (omelot, scrambled with vegetables etc.) Brian was an excellent cook and we walked away very satisfied! Also, liked the restaurant style service.

However, it was 50 yards from the square of Gettysburg and that was what we came to enjoy. We could have easily stayed in one of the smaller rooms and had the same AMAZING LOCATION AND SERVICE.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Brafferton Inn last October for 4 days while visiting and touring the Gettysburg area. They are centrally located to everything and we were able to walk to just about everything we wanted to do. The Inn itself is beautiful and has every updated amenity you could ask for while perfectly maintaining the historic feel. The owners were wonderful. Very helpful and inviting. Very comfy beds. The breakfasts were AMAZING! The peaceful garden in the back was perfect for reading a book and having a cup of tea. I cannot say enough about our stay. I highly recommend this B&B if you are visiting Gettysburg. Definitely felt like home away from home for 4 days. You will not be disappointed!!

Whenever I go to Gettysburg, I stay at the Brafferton Inn. They continue to improve the properties, and it is always very well maintained. The innkeepers are genuinely helpful and ready to offer suggestions or answer questions. The breakfasts are always good. This time we stayed in the oldest part of the house, built pre-Civil War. The only thing I would say is if you are tall, like my husband 6"2", you may have to watch your head clearance coming up the steps. The age of the property is part of it's charm. It has been here since the Battle of Gettysburg. I have also stayed in the carriage house section, there is the same attention to detail, the same quaint furnishings, and excellent linens; it is always a pleasure to stay here.

We have stayed at the Brafferton Inn many times. We visit the area 3 or 4 times a year and we stay here every time! We enjoy everything about the inn; from the owners, employees, location etc. We have stayed in many of the rooms and suites; each one is so tastefully decorated, cozy, clean and comfortable. The dining room is one of my favorite rooms and the breakfast has yet to disappoint us. The location of the inn is fantastic for sightseeing in the town, walking to the college campus, dining at many restaurants and browsing in the cute shops. The innkeepers have created an inn that makes you feel as if you've stepped back in time; yet with all the amenities of a nice hotel. Did I mention the homemade cookies every afternoon?

Room Tip: Rooms in the back are quieter, though we haven't had any problems with too much noise.
