My husband and I stayed at the Lightner farmhouse for 2 nights and it was wonderful. We stayed on the 3rd floor which was two rooms. The place was so clean and so well decorated. I loved the floors and the original wooden beams. Even though it is a very old house, the updated things such as air conditioning fit...

We are so glad you appreciated our quiet, outside of town location. It is exactly why we choose the property 12 years ago. The Pine Tree Suite is the room I jokingly call the Penthouse Suite because it sits at the top of the house and I agree it is quiet and cozy. Please come again when you can!

Eileen, Jason and Dennis were great. The breakfast was homemade and delish. Our room is old (expected from an inn that old) but the amenities were excellent and the rooms are clean and quaint. All the attractions are nearby and everyone is super nice and lovely.

My wife and I stayed at the farmhouse during our summer vacation. It is the BEST accommodation in the area, nice comfortable clean rooms, 24 hour Coffee, Tea and cookies, excellent breakfast (cooked by Jason to perfection). Excellent hosts who will help you at every turn. I cant recommend this b&b enough.

We booked here for one evening after spending a day on at Gettysburg on the battlefields. It was lovely, our room had its own exit onto the veranda, we spent the evening sitting in rocking-chairs just reading and chilling. Having eaten at lunchtime didn't even feel the need to go out having had one of the lovely complementary coffee and...

We arrived at the Lightner Farmhouse on 9/3/16 and found that pictures do not do this gorgeous property justice. My husband, daughtern and I were promptly greeted and welcomed by Eileen and Dennis, who were so friendly and open that we felt right at home. Fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies were on-hand as Eileen told us the history of the house....

Fabulous B & B!!! Eileen, Dennis and Jason are not only excellent inn keepers but interesting and friendly people. They pay attention to the details making everything perfect. Eileen shared her vast knowledge of the history of the Farmhouse and the Lighters, which was interesting and informative. If you want a great b&b experience full of Civil War history and...
