Valentines Weekend Getaway

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!

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!


A wonderful weekend getaway!

Excellent service and accommodations! We had a wonderful time! Breakfast was delicious!


Wonderful B&B

5 on May 27, 2015

My wife and I stayed in the Gettysburg Suite for our 15th anniversary and it was fantastic! The room was very clean and spacious and the bathroom was amazing with both a tub and a large shower. The meals were delicious. The service made me feel like I was at a 5 star restaurant. The courtyard is beautiful and well manicured and the pictures (or lack there of) do not do it justice. We spent a relaxing evening in the courtyard around the fire after a day of walking about. My Compliments to all the staff on a giving us a great experience for our first time in Gettysburg. This B&B will not disappoint you!

Beautiful B & B

Beautifully restored B&B in heart of Gettysburg. Walking distance to shops, restaurants, etc. Delicious hot breakfast served in the morning, inn keepers were very friendly and there was always a variety of beverages available along with a tasty bakery item each day. We really enjoyed sitting on their lovely deck overlooking the private garden. Very nice.


Outstanding
