Perfect choice

We are from California and had no idea what kind of place Swope Manor would be. But from the moment we were greeted by Kyle in her earlier American dress until her hug goodbye we had all of the comforts and companionship of family. The rooms were above average, beautifully decorated and the breakfasts were outstanding. Too many B&B's serve too much food, Swope's was just right, but tasty and well presented. The free coffee, cookies and glass of wine were perfect after a long day in the Civil War battlefield. I cannot recommend it more. Barry Schulman


Always Perfect!

Great location, impeccable accommodations and a flavorful breakfast. Add the spirit of Gettysburg and you have a prefect retreat. Third visit to the Swope and we'll be back.


just outstanding - everything about it

Continues to improve

Our 3rd stay at the Swope and it's better each time. Last weekend we toured the Christmas Holiday House Tour & Tasting at various B&Bs. Others had a little bit of charm, but the Swope is in a total different class, and we proved why we'll never stay any place else. Not only is it the most charming, classy, comfortable, and elegant, it's a block from the square! And then you have a staff so friendly you feel like you're with family. Bruce's experience in the business shines thru with kindness, the ability to pick a perfect staff, and cook a meal like the best chef in town! Kudos to the owner! Chuck & Kris


Our Favorite Place to Stay!

This was our third visit to The Swope. We absolutely love coming here. The staff is great, the food is amazing, and the house is gorgeous. During each of our visits we stayed in a different room and each one has its own charm. They are beautifully decorated and have plenty of amenities. This past weekend we did the holiday house tour and we found that The Swope is the best by far. Can't wait to go back in the spring! Don't stay anywhere else in Gettysburg! -New York


2 night stay

I just stayed at the Swope Manor with my wife and were very pleased with the rooms and the entire place. It is best discribed as first class for a reasonable price. The furnishings in the bedrooms, the two sitting rooms, the dining rooms and the library are tastefully done with period furniture and the entire building is a clean and neat as humanly possible. The breakfasts are to die for ,simply excellent. Best B and B we have stayed ever.

My husband & I were treated to a two night stay at Swope Manor. We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay. What a lovely home. It was hard to imagine that so many guests were there at the same time because it was always very quiet & peaceful. The only time you knew how many guest were there was at the breakfast sit downs. The rooms were impeccable as was the service. Check in and check out was super simple too. The staff was friendly & helpful.

My wife and I have returned to the Swope Manor because of it's excellent location and comfortable surroundings. Gettysburg PA is a very special vacation stop and the Swope Manor only adds to the experience. Staff is very accommodating and the breakfast is always delicious! We will return!


Wonderful Experience!

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!
