Wonderful Experience!

5 on June 27, 2016

We had an opportunity for a quick one night getaway. Since we live only about 1 hour from Gettysburg, it seemed like the perfect place to go... We were SO pleased with our choice of the Swope Manor. We felt like we were getting the most for our money. The week-night rate was very reasonable, and we called to make the reservation so we could use our AAA discount, and saved another 10%! We chose to stay in the Cabernet Chamber because it boasted a queen bed & jetted tub. The room was clean and very pretty with decorative paintings on the light fixtures and a unique painted bathroom sink & toilet -neat and unique touches! Also, the jetted tub was just as relaxing as I hoped it would be! The Cabernet Chamber had a little traffic noise, but nothing that kept us awake. It was in close proximity (one block) from the center of town (Lincoln Square), which made it perfect walking distance to many shops, attractions, and our personal favorite eating spot - The Pub. Overall, the house was quiet. I liked that the stairway was carpeted. It eliminated any noise of anyone going up and down the stairs. The house was a little confusing to navigate...there were little hallways all over the place. But once you got the hang of it, it wasn't too bad. Breakfast was AWESOME! The employees of the B&B were very nice and accommodating. The recipes for their breakfasts were shared with the guests, which I thought was very sweet! Overall, my husband and I would definitely stay here again. We would recommend this B&B to anyone looking for a relaxing atmosphere to enhance your historical Gettysburg vacation!


Our First Bed and Breakfast Experience

5 on June 20, 2016

This was our first bed and breakfast experience and it was over and above our expectations. We stayed in the Miss Dorothy Suite. The room was inviting, relaxing, clean and very comfortable. The entire house was beautifully decorated. Each morning Bruce's breakfast was better than the previous. Most important to us was the attentativeness of the staff. They were sincerely concerned with our enjoyment of Gettysburg. We are looking forward to our next stay and would recommend it highly.


Beautiful home with convenient location

The rooms at this B&B were very lovely. We stayed in Miss Dorothy's suite which faces the street. The bed was comfortable (although the pillows had a liner which was loud) and the room spacious enough for a family of three to stay comfortably. The staff was helpful and friendly. The breakfast delicious. It is an easy walking distance from restaurants and shopping.

Excellent B&B, breakfast Wednesday was lots of fund with the friendly folks at the table! We got special service on Thursday, as we had to be gone before the regular time for breakfast, in order to meet for our horseback tour. This house is right in downtown, so be prepared for street noise.


A place you cannot go wrong with if you are staying at Gettysburg

The Swope Manor is one of many bed a different breakfast places at Gettysburg, however it stands from the crow with its excellent staff service, spotless cleanliness and value for your money. They offer one of the yummiest breakfast we've had in years and the rooms are beautiful with this Victorian style that makes you feel like you are back in time. We are very pleased with our stay and we will be coming back next year for sure!

Best B&B in Gettysburg. The breakfast is delicious, and the rooms are beautiful. The staff were courteous and helpful. The history of the building is interesting, and it is very convenient to great restaurants and taverns. We will be back for sure!


love it here!

This was our second time staying here and both visits were wonderful! Everyone is always very friendly and helpful. Our room was spotless and comfortable. Everything is decorated beautifully! We'd be happy to stay here again in the future.


An excellent experience!

Maria and Bruce were amazing. She welcomed us and set the tone for our stay. Bruce made us a delicious breakfast. Both were pleasant and personable and made the stay memorable. The home was absolutely amazing. We loved it and will return to the Swope Manor for our future stays in Gettysburg

Not totally happy with New Years Eve stay

3.2 on January 10, 2016

This is an honest assessment of the Swope Inn from this past New Year's Eve from neither friends, family, nor staff. First let me say the Inn is very well kept and the rooms are comfortable, however, being an old and historic it has its limitations on noise. The staff should direct the guests to refrain from long, loud, discussions and/or bickering in the hallways outside the doors of other rooms. We were able to clearly hear a minor argument between other guests outside our door. Secondly, the holiday we spent there was New Years Eve .... a decidedly late night event, yet the greeter did not offer us anything but an 8 am breakfast ...take it or leave it. Not even a mention of compensation should you not desire a such an imposition as that early morning breakfast. The Inn had a later breakfast that was being taken up by a party of 16 guests leaving the 6 guests who were left to choose between a few hours of sleep before breakfast or sleeping in and eating elsewhere...again....no mention of compensation. When I booked the room there was no mention of the large party for breakfast nor that there wouldn't be any other accommodations made for anyone else. It appears to me that this policy only benefits the Inn staff and is very unprofessional since Breakfast is often half (or more) of the experience. There should have been another table utilized in any one of the 3 large common rooms downstairs. Therefore, I cannot recommend this Inn for New Years Eve. It just seemed lazy and inhospitable to guests whose sole purpose in choosing an upscale Bed and Breakfast is to be indulged.


Best in Gettysburg!

5 on October 20, 2015

Probably the most meticulously decorated rooms in Gettysburg and each suite/room has it's own newly renovated bathroom. Great attentive staff and a quality breakfast to start your day. It's not the highest price place to stay - just the Best!
