We made reservations in April for our August dinner. The menu is short on selections. There are two kinds of pot pie, regular or game. One each, seafood, steak, pork chop, ham, vegetarian. The food was cooked to order. It was hot when it arrived. It was tasty. The atmosphere was nice.

Spent the night at Farnsworth House Inn. Our party rented three rooms: Sarah Black, The Sweeney Room and Jennie Wade. The first two rooms were in the original building, while Jennie Wade is in the courtyard. All three rooms were charming and clean. We enjoyed tours of the attic and cellar, both tours were informative and engaging. We didn't experience...

My 12 year old son and I took an impromptu trip to Gettysburg for ghost hunts and while we only stayed for one night, we chose this place because it offered some tours and the grounds looked really cool. Wasn't disappointed in any way. The bed was a little hard but the room was really decked out to meet the...

We stopped in to the tavern at the Farnsworth House on our recent trip to Gettysburg, basically to see if anything had changed for the better. It was 5pm on a Tuesday afternoon and on entering the bar we immediately detected the scent of a lit cigar. Upon inquiring with the bartender, we found out it was the owner's cigar...

I have staid once previously at the Farnsworth House Inn. During my first stay, we spent the night in the Sarah Black room (which is, without a doubt, absolutely haunted, from the rattling doorknob to the other strange occurrences during our overnights stay). But for this stay, my sister and I spent the night in the Lincoln Room. This room...

The Farnsworth House is a bit more commercial that other B&B’s in town. We never did meet the owners since they have a full staff for check-in and the restaurant.
