      Historical Traveler Reviews Brafferton Inn Gettysburg

      Best BB we've stayed at!

      from

      We recently stayed for the 2nd time at the Brafferton. It even more enjoyable the second time because we knew the innkeepers already. The Hodges are fantastic hosts. Around as much or as little as you need them.

      The breakfast food was delicious both times we have stayed. The breakfasts are "gourmet" but not over-the-top.

      If you are looking for a great "low-key" place to hide from the kids-this is it.

      Location is great-you can walk to restaurants and a great little coffee shop.

      Their Civil War book selection has kept us both engrossed both times we visited.

      Rooms are quaint but have all modern convienences but most of all are CLEAN!!!

      Thanks for a great stay! New Cumberland, PA

      When in Gettysburg, stay here

      from

      The Brafferton Inn is a lovely B & B, centrally located in the center of Gettysburg. The innkeepers, the Hodges, made us feel right at home. The suite in which we stayed was large and comfortable. Given the age of the building, the room was well-appointed and clean. The breakfast the innkeepers made was delicious. The Hodges gave us some good advice as to where to sightsee during our stay.

      To get a good rate, I recommend staying mid-week, if you can. We had a great room for half the price we would have paid during the weekend.

      Just as a precaution, parking, while not a major problem, was the only minor inconvenience. In order to park near the hotel, you basically have to park in the garage across the alley behind the inn. This, of course, is the fault of the town, not the inn.

      Overall, this was a fantastic B & B, and we will definitely be back the next time we are in Gettysburg.

      Great Food and Service

      from

      My fiance and I took our first trip to Gettysburg and our so happy we chose the Brafferton Inn. The Inn was built in 1786, and has wonderful antiques and artwork throughout. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the Loft Suite, and highly recommend this room to everyone. It has the original floor boards, beams, and stone in an extremely atmospheric setting. The owners are wonderful, and were very helpful with ideas to explore the town. Most of all we loved the breakfasts. One of the owners is a chef, and we cannot believe the amount of food and the delicious recipes that were served to us. We are told this is definately the place to stay in town. We will be back!!

      Great First Experience

      from

      I recently took my first trip to Gettysburg. We stayed at the Brafferton because they have larger rooms for affordable prices. All negative reviews about this B & B prior to April 2005 should be erased form this website as the new owners are absolutely lovely. Upon our arrival they were very gracious and kind giving us a detailed tour of the entire building. They are very proud of their new "home". They also seem very excited to have us as guests in their establishment. Being in the same business, I was very impressed with their approach towards their guests. THey were also very helpful finding information on tours and restaurants in the area. Again, they are new to the area so were very interested to hear our opinions and experiences on all the places we visited. My one complaint was the size of the bathroom I had. I was with my entire family (a total of 3 rooms) so I realize that all of the bathrooms are not so small, but I think I would prefer not to stay in the same room. The afternoon cookies and tea was the best comfort food I could have asked for and the breakfast was absolutely amazing! I will definitely be visiting this B & B again.

      Nice place to stay

      from

      The Brafferton Inn is truly a lovely place to stay in Gettysburg. The rooms are all delightfully decorated in period furniture and the innkeepers are very helpful in recommending and making arrangements for good places to eat and for a tour guide of the battlefield. The food is very good. Here are the only downsides: The front rooms are a little bit noisy at night and, given the price and ambience, it is surprising that the only toiletry provided is a bar of cheap soap. The other thing is that you must pay for parking ($1 hour) which adds up rather quickly.

      Thumbs up for The Brafferton Inn

      from

      This was our 2nd visit to the Brafferton Inn, and it was still a great experience. Although it is under new ownership, Amy, Brian and Jean were very friendly and great to talk to. We truly enjoyed staying at their Inn and are looking forward to returning again in the future. The breakfasts that they prepared were as scrumptious as I imagined they would be when I was awakened by the lovely aroma that reached our room.

      Don't hesitate to stay at The Brafferton Inn. It is very convenient to everything.

      Home away from home

      from

      My wife and I have stayed at this Inn nine times over the past 6 years, As Civil War buffs, we appreciate it's convenient location and the feeling that the innkeepers are truly our friends.

      What a great experience

      from

      This was one of the best B&B experiences we have ever had. The owners were more than hospitable and helpful. They were happy to assist with dinner reservations and give information about local events. The breakfast was amazing and the room was historic, beautiful, and comfortable. We loved our stay and will be returning in the fall.

      Keeps You In the Gettysburg Mood

      from

      Our experience was quite the opposite of the other reviewer here. We felt very welcome. The owner was there when we showed up, gave us a detailed tour of the history and layout of their place - the oldest residence in town. The B&B is filled with antiques and is tastefully done. Breakfast was a wonderful fruit compote and blueberry pancakes.

      They even arranged us a battlefield tour guide and dinner reservations before we arrived (to our request). I would highly recommend - it's very atmospheric, made us feel we were still in the 1860s.

      Avoid the Brafferton Inn

      from

      We have stayed at a number of B&Bs in recent years. I can honestly say that we have never experienced such an unfriendly reception. The owners were unfriendly. The breakfasts were unremarkable and unimaginative. The afternoon offering was packaged cookies and instant tea. Little was offered in the way of suggestions of sights and activities. We were given a map of the area with a few things highlighted upon our arrival. No further interest in our activities was expressed.

      Day 2 - The Plan

      A travel blog entry by thebusseys on Apr 12, 2015

      Today the plan is, after we finish breakfast, we are going to get our photos taken using original photography equipment back from the civil war era. We will be dressed according to the period. After that, we will grab lunch to go and head down via Skyline Drive thru the mountains. Due to the weather in Charleston, SC we are no longer heading that way. We will be making our way to Knoxville, TN. Or as close as we can. Today is mostly going to be a driving ...

      Following the walk, we headed back to Chambersburg as it is now 5:30ish. We decided to hit up a local hole in the wall dessert place called Nathan Miller Chocolate for some coffee and desserts to take back to the hotel.

      Woke up this morning and boy are we sore. Who would have thought just driving for 7+ hours would do that. We are about to grab breakfast and then make the 30 min drive to Gettysburg to meet with our guide. Our guide is to provide a 3 hour history tour of Gettysburg and the surrounding area. Should be a learning experience. Then off to lunch and maybe the museum and/or a visit to the Amish country. That's still up in air. Anyways off we go until the next ...

      After a little duty-free shopping at Niagara Falls the night before, our first stop-off in the morning was to pick up our duty-free shopping before crossing the border and back on American soil. The border crossing was the quickest our tour director had ever experienced in the 24 years of directing tours. From the border we then trekked across the rolling hills of rural upstate New York and Pennsylvania. The European influence ...

      ... countries tried to preserve everywhere a battle in their history had taken place as a memorial open space? Half the land on the continent would be made up of battlefield parks.

      One of the goals of the NPS is to avoid unsightly development on and around park system units. The first time I visited Gettysburg in the late 1970s with my family there was a massive gray observation tower from which to view the battlefield, built in the post WWII years when big and modern ...
