We really enjoyed our recent stay at the Lightner Farmhouse. The location was great. Only a few minutes drive from downtown Gettysburg. There were 3 of us and we stayed in the Pine Tree Suite. It was nicely decorated, spacious and very clean. The Innkeepers (Eileen and Dennis) were very welcoming and made sure we felt at home. The breakfast...

My fiancee and I spent three nights at the Lightner Farmhouse, with another couple, and her mom. We had a great time, the owners were very inviting and welcoming. The rooms were very comfortable, every comfort of home. The breakfast was delicious each morning, and Eileen was a gracious hostess. If you have a chance to stay in Gettysburg, I...

We stayed in the private cottage for two nights to celebrate our anniversary. Upon our arrival we were greeted very warmly by Eileen and Dennis who gave us a brief history of the house and walked us through the house to our cottage. You can really tell that they love what they do. The cottage was very clean and cozy....

This was our second trip to Gettysburg. We stayed in town at the Brafferton the year before and wanted to try a place outside of town. It's no inconvenience whatsoever being outside of town, as most of the main attractions (battlefields, visitor's center/museum, etc.) you have to drive to anyway. The Lightner is just a few minutes drive from town...

This was my first time to Gettysburg and I wanted some place other than a chain hotel. The hosts, Eileen and Dennis, made me feel so at home. I thought I was visiting good friends. My husband and I stayed in the Oak room, which faces the rear, on the second floor. I appreciated that the AC was just right....

This bed and breakfast is quaint and full of history. My husband and I truly enjoyed the night we spent there. The room (Birch) was comfortable and full of old fashioned charm. They also had wonderful nature trails on the property, which made for a relaxing evening stroll. The breakfast in the morning was also excellent and kept us full...

My husband and I have had many visits to Gettysburg. This was our first time at Lightner bed and breakfast. The room, service and breakfast were exceptional. We really enjoyed hiking on their trails and relaxing on the rockers on their porch. The gardens and grounds are beautiful. Eileen gave us several new ideas that made our stay memorable. We...

Our traveling companions, my wife and I were delighted with our stay at the Lightner Farmhouse. Our hosts, Eileen and Dennis were most gracious and informative. The hotel is a short ride from the visitor center just outside of town. When we toured downtown Gettysburg, my wife asked me why we did not book a hotel downtown? There are some...
