Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Brafferton. The Innkeepers and staff were beyond friendly--they made us feel right at home the moment we stepped through the door. And knowing we stayed in such a historical Civil War home made the stay even more enjoyable. We would not hesitate to stay at The Brafferton again when we return for another visit to Gettysburg!!
A friend and I did a last minute trip to Gettysburg for the farmer's markets and such. We usually come with a larger group and either camp or do a motel, and have doing so for the last 6 years or so. Since it was the two of us I found the last room at this B&B and booked it. I was NOT disappointed. The grounds, the atmosphere inside the home, everything was so quaint and cozy. There are period costumes in the parlor that were fun dressing in and taking pictures. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the Battlefield Bed and Breakfast.
This was a really charming B&B. We loved the historical aspect of the B&B. The talks that the local historians gave in the morning were really informative about this time period. It really added to our stay. Also the sit down breakfasts each day were delicious. The staff was extremely welcoming and friendly and the warm cookies in the afternoon were really a nice gesture. This B&B was close to town and right next door to the battlefields. I would highly recommend it and will stay here again on our return visit.
Overall a great stay at an historic inn. Breakfast was plentiful, but somewhat unimaginative. Floors in bedroom sloped, and bed sloped making sleeping difficult. Sloping floors understandable in an inn of this age. Had dinner there one night which was delicious.
My husband had wanted to visit the Gettysburg battle fields for several years. Although I was not too interested I decided to surprise him and booked the trip. I found the Brafferton Inn on trip advisor and based on the reviews thought it would be a safe choice. The Brafferton exceeded our expectations! We stayed in the Garden suite and it was perfect. We brought our son along and all of us agreed that it was top notch. The suite was spacious, impeccably clean and the beds in the both the king and twin bedrooms were the most comfortable of any place we've stayed. The suite was air conditioned and always felt comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked--right down to coffee for the Keurig as well as fresh creamer in the fridge! Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order every morning. You were given a choice of three entrées in addition to fresh fruit, orange juice and wonderful muffins. The innkeepers- Joan, Brian & AmyBeth were so welcoming, always available but never intrusive. The Brafferton is centrally located. Walk out the front door and there are shops and restaurants only steps away. The battle field and other key historical sites are all within 10-15mins drive. Also, the Majestic Theater is a 5 minute walk from the back of the inn which we enjoyed a movie at. We chose to see the battle fields via scooters, which was my husband’s idea. I was leery of the novel idea but it turned out to be the best option. GettyPeds is located just up the street from the inn and it was a blast. My husband rented a scooter and my son and I rented scoot coupe. We had a tour guide and he was fantastic. Be sure to go to the Diorama and Seminary prior to touring the battle field. I would go back in a heartbeat and highly recommend the Brafferton Inn. Gail O. Halifax, MA
I can't imagine a more perfect experience. It was very cozy and we wished we could have stayed longer. We look forward to our next stay and wouldn't consider going elsewhere. Thank you for thinking of all the details and making us feel so at home.
Really lovely home and grounds that are maintained immaculately by Nancy and Bill. The neighborhood is very peaceful as well. We stayed in the loft room for one night and had a great time. Nancy and Bill are very friendly and it was a great pleasure chatting with them. Would definitely return if we are ever in the area again.
We were fortunate enough to stay 2 nights in the Ohio room at the Brickhouse Inn on short notice. It was the best decision we could have made. We decided on the package deal which included a 3 hr. private tour of the Battlefied. Susan our guide was fantastic. We could have listened to her all day. Brian and Tessa the owners, are wonderful warm people. The first morning we thought it was a bit cool to eat outdoors on their beautiful patio, so we opted to eat indoors and this did not pose a problem at all to the staff. I am not a breakfast person but I could become one if the staff cooked for me daily. Food was outstanding. We were on the third floor which was not an issue for us. It was quiet and cozy. The bed was comfortable, the room an ample size, clean and neat and had everything you would ever need. We were within walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We will certainly be returning and I can't imagine staying anywhere else.
The Brafferton Suite at the Brafferton Inn exceeded our expections! The suite was spacious and comfortable, the breakfast was outstanding and both Joan and Brian were helpful and gracious hosts.
We had a great one night stay in the town of Gettysburg at the Brafferton Inn. The staff is professional yet warm and welcoming. They offer a great breakfast in a colonial setting that is charming and inviting. We would definitely stay again!
From the moment you walk in you are welcomed and treated like a VIP. They do everything to make you feel welcome and comfortable. We stayed in the Garden Room and found it to be wonderful! It was quiet, comfortable and beautifully decorated. And breakfast was astounding! The food was superb, and there was plenty of it. Plan to skip lunch! I can't wait to visit again!
Just spent the weekend at the Raphael. It was a wonderful experience. Alexandra and George go above and beyond to make you feel at home. The location was great for us. We could walk to many of the restaurants. I highly recommend staying there.
My dad and I took a father-son trip to Gettysburg. We absolutely loved the Mary-Penn B&B. First of all, it is extremely cool how historic the building is. It's a farmhouse built in 1740 with the second floor put on using bricks thrown off as ballast in Baltimore Harbor in 1793. It's in an absolutely lovely setting (surrounded by 900 acres of farm) away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Bea and David are extremely nice and were wonderful hosts to us. (David even drove us to see an original marker laid by Mason and Dixon in the 1700s not far from the property. The breakfasts were huge and delicious (and this is coming from a big eater). We stayed in the William Penn room which was really nice and great for us because there was an annex with a twin bed that I slept in. I was a little concerned the inn would be too far out of town, but it's not. It's close and the setting is so lovely and private it's worth the extra short drive. (Also, downtown Gettysburg is a little overrun with fudge shops and haunted tours for my tastes.)
