At The Manor on Front, my boyfriend and I stayed in the Wilson Room. It was just perfect for a couple getting away for the weekend. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was sparkling. I appreciated that they brought us all new towels each day. I felt that the breakfast's both morning definitely added value to our stay. We headed out stuffed each morning. Mike and Sally were gracious hosts offering to get whatever we may have needed. We'll definitely be back again!
It was a wonderful stay at the historic Bed & Breakfast!! This place is one of the truly magnificent and historical places to stay at in all of Gettysburg believe me!!! I can't wait to go back again ASAP. Also last but not least the coffee and chocolate chip cookies were amazing!
We stayed 2 nights in the walnut cottage and will definitely be returning with our kids next time! The Hoover family could not be more gracious friendly warm informative and welcoming! The breakfast is scrumptious and if you don't leave full that is on you because my husband and I left full and satisfied and able to skip lunch. The setting is just delightful peaceful and away from town but still so close you are anywhere you want to be in 10 minutes or less! We saw deer in the early morning and enjoyed Jezabel the cat who joined us on the porch. The room was spacious warm and inviting and self serve offerings of coffee tea and cookies was delightful. Highly recommend this establishment!
The farmhouse is well kept and comfortable. You can tell that the owners take pride and a lot of time in the upkeep. We stayed on the third floor which is the 2 room suite. A few extra stair steps but worth it. Breakfasts were so good.
We chose the walnut cottage to stay in and after a day full of traveling, walking and etc it was heavenly to sit on the porch and enjoy the peacefulness and country beauty of this establishment. The innkeepers were warm, inviting, and knowledgeable and extremely accommodating! The cottage was comfortable, tastefully decorated, and just wonderful - my husband got up early one morning and was sitting on the porch petting the friendly cat Jezabel and watched the deer in the meadow. The breakfasts were satisfying, tasty and left you full. I cannot say enough good things about our experience other than we will be back this time with our kids!
We had a very warm and inviting experience during our stay at the Lightner Farmhouse B&B. Eileen and Dennis were wonderful and very personable. This B&B stood out from several others we have stayed in because of the little extra's that were provided: Bathrobes in the closet, cotton balls, qtips, soap and shampoo in the shower and a blow dryer just to name a few things. The breakfasts and baked goods were delicious. Hearing about the history of the house and the importance it played during the war was a great treat from the Historian. The whole experience was perfect and added to our visit. We will be talking about this trip and the Lightner Farmhouse B&B for a long time. We have already recommended the trip to friends and family and strongly suggested they stay at the Lightner Farmhouse B&B.
I stayed for a quick overnight business trip and chose The Manor on Front specifically because it was not a typical big box hotel and because of the obvious dedication to preservation. It was fantastic and a great value. The Inn has been lovingly restored and is quite comfortable. The views of the river in the morning and evening are quite soothing, especially after travel. I plan to return with my husband for a leisure trip.
My husband and I along with a friend of ours stayed here a couple of nights. It was a first for all of us in a B&B. It was just wonderful, our standards had been set. It was like being at home with all the peace. Just outside of all the traffic with the beauty of the grounds. Eileen, Dennis and Jason were so friendly just like family. Breakfast was wonderful. I would stay again in a heartbeat. It certainly made for a wonderful trip.
We could not have chosen a more wonderful B&B for our Gettysburg trip! The home is living history, brought to life by the innkeepers, local history buffs. We enjoyed the quiet rural setting which is within a few miles from the Gettysburg VisitorsCenter and downdown. We would return in a heartbeat!
My husband and I have been coming to the Gettysburg area for over 15 years, our first B&B stay was at the historic Cashtown Inn, which at that time was owned by the Hoovers. We followed them to the Lightner Farmhouse when they sold Cashtown. We would never dream of staying elsewhere, their hospitality is unsurpassable. The atmoshere is relaxing and welcoming, Eilleen and Dennis go out of their way to make your stay just perfect. Once you stay at the Farmhouse you'l know what we have experienced.
I picked the Manor on the Front for a business event and will be back for pleasure. The home is lovingly renovated with every attention to detail and that is what inspired me most to stay. The view of the river is striking and peaceful, especially at sundown and sunrise. The rooms and the common areas are very nicely done, very clean and every little detail has been added for comfort, down to fluffy robes. I highly recommend it and so glad to see the house was saved from a bulldozer. It's a treasure.
We had a fantastic experience at Lightner B&B! Never staying at a bed and breakfast before, my husband and I were not sure what to expect. Eileen and Dennis were amazing hosts, very knowledgable about the area, and served amazing breakfast. We would definitely recommend this place to anyone.
As members of the Gettysburg Foundation's 1st Corps, my husband and I travel to Gettysburg, PA often, and our favorite place to stay is the Lightner Farmhouse. The property is beautiful, it's quiet, and the location is super convenient to the Visitor's Center and stores. Most important, though, are the owners, and how welcoming they are. Our last visit inluded a very early departure for a tour of Antietam, and they made the extra effort to make us breakfast before we needed to leave, a full 1-1/2 hours before the usual time . It's these 'little' things that really make our stay there so great!! Can't wait to go back!!!
I went up the first time for my 50th birthday as a present to me and I've been back every year but one. The owners have become friends and the atmosphere is peaceful and enjoyable. The owners do a wonderful job at helping you to enjoy your stay, with pointing out good places to eat and if there is something special going on in town or near by. Looking forward to next year.
We only stayed at the Front Street Manor one night but based on our stay would definitely return when visiting Harrisburg. Beds and pillows were very comfortable. The Richey suite has an adjoining room which our daughter and husband stayed in (shared bath) Breakfast was delicious and dining with other guest allowed for many conversations about how each guest came to stay at the Manor. You will not be disappointed with any aspect of this Inn if you chose to be a guest
My husband and I stayed at the Lightner Farmhouse B&B for the weekend while we attended a family reunion nearby. Eileen and Dennis were very welcoming even when we arrived very late due to our flight delay. Eileen provides a historical discussion of the home's origins and the Gettysberg area on Saturday mornings. The breakfasts are very good, especially the cinamon and nut waffles and the zucchini and pineapple bread. Coffee, chocolate chip cookies, and bottled water are available at all times. The farmhouse is beautifully maintained and guarded by their outside cat, Jezabell. Even though the temperature in Gettysberg was very hot during our stay, the air conditioning in our room was great. We plan to return.
We very much enjoyed our stay at the Bear House B&B. George was an exceptionally accommodating host who made us feel welcome from the moment we arrived. We enjoyed sitting on the deck in the evening with cheese and crackers and fresh blackberries, and the breakfast was huge and delicious. The York Peppermint Patties and Hershey kisses were also a nice, local touch. Would highly recommend.
We love Lightner Farmhouse B&B! It is beautiful and quiet. Eileen, Dennis and Jason are the best! They make you feel like family when you stay. It is the only place we stay when we are in Gettysburg and we come every year. Jezabell is an great kitty too!
We stayed at the Lightner Bed & Breakfast. The farmhouse was so full of charm and history. We had a private entrance to our room. The room was very inviting as we're the common areas. The Hoover family was warm and gracious as well as very knowledgeable. The food was delicious and filling. It is a little outside of downtown and back off the road. I would recommend this for anyone looking for a lovely getaway. Thank you for a marvelous time!
