How amazing to stay in rooms that hosted Civil War officers and even Revolutionary War Era guests! The gorgeous building has settled over the centuries, so you feel the history when you walk over slightly tilted floors. The beds and amenities are all modern comfort without denting the historic charm. The owner and his staff are gracious, kind, and generous....

Clean rooms and great breakfast. Would be nice to have homemade snacks, coffee, drinks made available throughout the evening. The Owner was very nice and polite. I also received a call before our stay to confirm my reservation, very helpful.

Wanted a B&B in local area. Chose the Fairfield from online availabilities. When we got it, the character stood out immediately. It is right on the main road but had free parking along the side. It has a tavern/restaurant on ground floor. We were greeted by Kara who was extremely friendly and informative. She showed us our room - 3...

Great place to stay. We chose to stay at the Fairfield Inn when we brought our family to visit Gettysburg to help our children step back in time. We were the only guests on the night of our stay and the children (12 and 15-years-old) loved exploring the inn, looking for all the historical places and hidden treasures. This is...

My husband and I were visiting the area (both in our early 30s), and we decided on a historic B&B. We were so lucky to get the Three Colonels Suite.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Historic Fairfield Inn offers an enticing, warm, unique and memorable experience. It has been in continuous operation since 1757, and is one of the five oldest continuously operating inns in the country. Our rooms and suites are sumptuously decorated, and our food delicious. The restaurant is noted for our Chicken and Biscuits, and our Ham and Bean Soup (which is the same recipe as was served to the retreating Confederate forces on July 4th, 1863). Visitors to the Historic Fairfield Inn include Patrick Henry, Thaddeus Stevens, Robert E. Lee, and Mamie Eisenhower. This is a "must stop" destination for visitors to Gettysburg. ... more   less
