I felt a little overcharged for our stay-the room was very nice and clean and the breakfast was wonderful, but not outstanding.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We are happy you found our inn to be clean and enjoyed breakfast. Not really sure what you mean by being overcharged. Please contact us if you think there was an error in billing you.

Great stay!

This place is amazing! We stayed in the suite that included 2 bedrooms, a fully functional kitchen and living room. This would be perfect for 2 couples or a family of 4. Spacious bathroom with a shower that has 2 shower heads and a double vanity. Breakfast was incredible and filling. They provided 3-4 options each morning and even were able to accommodate food allergies. I highly recommend this place for your stay in Gettysburg. Perfect location and lovely stay!


Labor day weekend stay.

Highly Recommend!

The Loft Room has high ceilings with exposed beams, original floors and exposed brick & stone walls. This suite is in the attic on the third floor and very private as no other guests on the third floor. Breakfast was delicious. Joan and Brian and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. Location right in town was convenient to shops and restaurants. We parked in the public garage located just a few steps behind the inn. We completely enjoyed our stay at the Brafferton Inn.
