Individually decorated bedrooms, spacious private bathrooms, and elegant, tastefully furnished suites and parlours invite you to relax. Proud to be Celebrating and Serving Fine Food & Spirits to travelers and guests for 256 YEARS! Built nineteen years before the Declaration of Independence, The Fairfield Inn was originally the Mansion House of Squire Miller, an original founder of the town. In the 250 years that have passed, the Mansion House has hosted many famous Americans such as Patrick Henry, nephew of Squire William and Isabella Henry Miller, Thaddeus Stevens, Generals Robert E. Lee & J.E.B. Stuart, Baseball Hall of Famer Eddie Plank and The Eisenhowers. When the Battle of Gettysburg was over, the Confederate Army retreated West through Fairfield. General Robert E. Lee and his officers stopped to eat at the Inn. After touring the Battlefield, we invite you to retreat to our style of history and hospitality. Unwind in one of our luxurious suites or guest rooms. Sip hot spiced cider by one of our eight fireplaces or have a drink in Squire Miller’s Tavern. Enjoy seasonal specialties on our front porch or dine in the original Mansion House.

My wife and I stayed in the J.E.B. Stuart guest room which was very nice. Terry the head chef cooked a delicious Thanksgiving meal and John the owner is a heck of a nice guy. We will be staying there again in the near future.

I do appreciate the ambience that I feel as soon as I enter an historic establishment. It was quite obvious that the proprietor has taken a good effort to maintain an American Icon. I will visit again as soon as my travels take me Gettysburg, Pennsylvannia, Victor Palo.
