We booked this Bed and Breakfast after seeing it mentioned on the History Channel. No ghosts here and the stories the workers tell you are a joke. I felt stupid after the first day because the room was not worth the money and the ghost stories were childish. The first day we had a Shock beer for $5 in the...

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay and you didn't have any haunted experiences. Not everyone has a ghost encounter when they come here. I hope that you decide to come and see us again and give it another try!

We stayed at Farnsworth Inn one night - Sunday October 2nd . The staff at the Inn was great - especially Bonnie and her daughter at breakfast !! We stayed in the McFarland Room - as we had heard this and the Sara Black rooms were the best for paranormal activity. It did not disappoint . Mr Sweeney (sp) and...

The Farnsworth Inn was excellent. The room was spectacular, the bathroom was amazing, and the staff were friendly and accommodating. I stayed with a friend for a "girls weekend" of ghosts and Gettysburg. We didn't experience anything "ghostly," which was just fine with us, but we had a great stay! The Inn is located directly across the street from an...

We stayed overnight at this inn… And we did not sleep at all. If you're looking for a spooky experience, do this. I don't know if I would do this again because we were all so scared ha ha… But what a great experience and story to go along with it. We took the mature tour with Mike and it...

We stayed one night at the Farnsworth House. Our room, the Eisenhower Room was lovely. I loved all the little personal touches in the room and bathroom. I wished that it was a King bed but we managed. Our other party stayed in McFarlane Room. It was beautiful too! It was too dark in the room was the only complaint....

Great food and historic atmosphere. The pumpkin fritters are amazing. Reasonably priced fine dinning. You should make reservations ahead of time to ensure seating. Our waitress, Victoria, was wonderful and attentive.

Everyone we encountered was very nice and helpful. We had dinner in The Sweeney Tavern and our waitress Heidi was great. That evening we did the Mourning Theater tour with Morgan and she was very nice and you can tell she has such a passion for history and storytelling. We stayed in the Custer Room which we found to be...

The grounds of this beautiful place are spectacular. Sadly the service was inferior and the place smelled like cigars and looked a bit dirty. The servers and other employees disappeared when needed. And we saw and heard them chatting with each other with some racy language. The food was okay but nothing to write home about. Maybe next time we...

Had a late lunch here at Sweeney Tavern before starting a tour of the Gettysburg battlefield. Ordered a slippery chicken pot pie and a local cider, and everything came out as expected. The inn has a reputation for being haunted, hence its iconic status in town. But I wouldn't go out of my way to eat here. Having said that,...
