My nephew and I were there May 19th-22nd, 2017. It was our first trip to Gettysburg and I cannot tell you how wonderful the Lightner Farmhouse was. The Hoovers and Jason were just delightful. The rooms were great, the food better! What a fantastic experience! We are very grateful. Thank you!!!

My husband and I spent the weekend at Lightner Farmhouse for my birthday. We loved it! We stayed in the Pine Tree Suite which was so spacious and charming and very clean! The room had windows overlooking the property and books you could read and enjoy. It had a Keurig, which my husband enjoyed. Breakfast was delicious both days and...

We had the Walnut Cottage at the back of the B&B. Quiet, peaceful and very nice. Overlooks the grounds from a private porch. If it had been a tad warmer this is where we would have spent the evening. Easy quick trip into the battlefield area. Sorry our schedule only allows us to spend one night. Cookies are great!

We stayed for two nights in the White Oak Room. The room has a full, private bathroom. The property was clean and attractive and very nicely appointed. Breakfast each morning was scrumptious. Highly recommended.

This was a gem of a find! The farmhouse is away from the road to usher in a quiet start to everyday. Eileen was sure to ask about any dietary restrictions for the morning breakfast and it was scrumptious every morning! The Walnut Cottage had a separate entrance, private deck, and a view of the meadow. It is close to...

Spent the night ghost-hunting on Friday the 13th. We are locals (York) and the visit was a birthday gift for my wife. The staff was wonderful and because it was off-season we had the run of the house and our pick of rooms. Basic ghost hunting equipment is available for rent (compass, flashlights, K2 meter) and the caretakers provided some...

The farmhouse made our trip to Gettysburg even better. The accommodations were very clean and comfortable and Eileen and her family were very helpful and friendly-it was a great meal in the morning-we would definitely stay again.

Husband planned a get away weekend for us. (2 adults and 2 teens) We stayed in the attic suite which featured a separate bedroom for the adults. The adjacent suite for the teens featured a tv, fridge, daybed and trundle bed. Both girls loved this space. Our bedroom was spacious and very comfortable. The home itself is lovely. Fixed up...

We visited Lightner Farmhouse for one night on 13 October 2016. From the moment you turn off the main road, you can feel the history and atmosphere that surrounds this historic farmhouse. We were made very welcome by the hosts Eileen and Dennis and introduced to the history and setting of the establishment. We chose to stay in Walnut Cottage...

Really enjoyed staying here, the owners were pleasant, the grounds were well worth a wander in, the room was lovely and we enjoyed having a porch to sit out on. We laughed at the leopard print gown and enjoyed all of it. we didn't get to see any ghosts, but that was fine too, we did get to meet the...
