Anniversary Weekend!

5 on October 04, 2016

My husband and I stayed at Hickory Bridge Farm about 18 years ago, in the cabins. We thought they were charming. Our kids booked a stay for us this year for our 30th wedding anniversary and it was wonderful. We stayed in the Master Bedroom, which was warm and cozy. Such a beautiful place to stay and visit. Next time, we'll try to restaurant!! Thank you for a wonderful weekend!


Great place to stay for an anniversary

4.0 on July 04, 2016

This is a great place to stay for your anniversary. I only have 1 recommendation. It would have been nice to have a mini fridge in our room. It was very hot and everytime we went for ice out of the fridge downstairs it was empty. A typically hotel room would have one so if the management would put one in that would be a cheap improvement.


Lovely B and B

Cottage in the woods by a stream

4.6 on June 16, 2016

Our time at HBF was a really enjoyable experience. We spent 4 lovely days in one of the cottages at HBF, and dined with them one night at their restaurant. The setting is idyllic: wind in the trees; and water burbling in the creek that runs through the property. The local rooster is an over-achiever, however, so keep the windows closed if you want to sleep late. The main house dates to the 1700s, plus a newer addition, and has been beautifully refurbished. The cottage was a comfortable duplex in woods a short walk from the main house, recently updated, and right next to the creek. It has AC that works well, but we turned it off to enjoy the wind and water sounds at night, and we were perfectly comfortable despite daytime temps in the 90s. Breakfast was delicious and generous. Pleasant breakfast companions each morning were all from within 1 hour of Gettysburg and all repeat visitors, which reinforces our sense that HBF is a superior B&B experience with a great reputation in the area. Dinner (a separate charge) was hearty country food, well-prepared, with unlimited portions: you may want to skip lunch before you go, and you should make a reservation. Mary Lynn and her team were lovely and helpful. If you're fussy about room services, you may want to talk with staff up-front about your expectations. Everything started out spotless and well-supplied, and the cottage porch was swept daily, but the inside was not cleaned, towel refresh wasn't entirely consistent, and basic supplies (shampoo, TP) were not replenished during our stay. By day 4 it was noticeable enough that we would have asked for a cleaning and resupply if we had been staying an additional day. (Given their responsiveness to our other requests, I am sure that, if we'd asked, they would have taken care of it.) Not a big deal for us, but if it's the kind of thing that bothers you, maybe better to say so up-front?


Relaxing weekend!

We spent Saturday Square Dancing in Fairfield. Hickory Bridge Farm was a great resting place before and after a day of dancing. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was delightful. The hot tub was very relaxing Friday night. The breakfasts were filling and delicious. We look forward to returning in the future.


Hickory Bridge Farm - A country weekend getaway!

5 on June 03, 2016

A party of three couples stayed in the 3 of the 4 cabins located on the beautiful Hickory Bridge Farm for the Memorial Day Weekend. The cabins are located in a area that sits back from the main farm and alongside a babbling brook that flows throughout the property. One of our party had been to the farm before and had dined at the restaurant however it was a first visit for the rest of the party. The cabins were nicely decorated with a queen size bed, full bathroom with shower, and many amenities common at a hotel. There are two cabins together for each cottage however you did not hear the couple next to you. A full breakfast was served on a back porch of the main house overlooking the forest and fields of this breathtaking farm. We had four breakfast meals of which one was delivered to our cabin on Sunday in the form of a continental breakfast with fresh fruit, pastries, and coffee. The Hickory Bridge Farm is known throughout the area for its family style meals that they serve throughout the week. Reservations are requested so that the staff can plan for the family style meal based on the number of people dining. We chose the Saturday evening meal which was a highlight of our weekend adventure. Mary Lynn Martin and her staff are accomodating, friendly, and were readily available for any of our requests. The Hickory Bridge Farm is located about 15 minutes from Gettysburg, and a little over an hour to Lancaster and Amish Country. You will not be disappointed in this Bed and Breakfast. A quiet gem in the beautiful pa countryside!


Fantastic B&B

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Hickory Bridge Farm. We stayed in the cottage and loved it. Such a pretty room, quite, clean and so cozy. The staff we wonderful to us. Very accommodating. The food was fantastic. We loved our weekend away and would recommend to anyone.


Charming Bed and Breakfast!

5 on May 19, 2016

We were pleasantly surprised in so many ways to find the cottage that we stayed in. Although it looked a little rugged at first, it was anything but rugged inside! It was very homey and it felt like we were out in the middle of nature with a babbling brook right outside our door. The breakfast was excellent! It was a great find!


Wedding weekend

3.8 on May 18, 2016

We stayed in the Master Bedroom of the main house. The room was very spacious and provided a beautiful view from the private balcony. The bed was large, but a bit too firm. Additionally, the coffeemaker was sub par and produced very bland watered down coffee. Perhaps a centrally located Keurig or other higher end coffee maker would be better. We were very excited about the fact that breakfast would be delivered to our room on Sunday. The breakfast consisted of sticky buns, blueberry muffins, pineapple, and orange juice.Our only complaint was that we wished the B&B had added a meat or something savory to tone down the carb/sugar overload. Overall, the B&B is a good value located in a beautiful country setting.
