      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.

      Overall
      We had a great time in the camper and enjoyed the warm beds and running water. I also really enjoyed watching a movie each night with the kids. It was nice being warn in the camper and laughing with the kids. I would have liked not being surrounded by dance music but we just ignored it.

We were hoping to walk around the National Mall a little bit that afternoon so that the next day we could focus on all the museums. Unfortunately we got to D.C just as rush hour traffic was starting and ended up stuck in the worst deadlock for over an hour. Chris ...

      We left Gettysburg discussing of our next trip back and what other activities we would want to get into. I look forward to going back as I feel there is so much more to see.

The park is huge and would take all day, or possible two, to hike around the entire park. My advice, take or rent a bike and ride the trails. It is possible to drive from outlook to outlook, but parking often becomes a problem. Unless you're a Civil War Historian, I strongly recommend hiring ...

      On Tuesday the 5th we visited the new Visitor Center and did the audio guided auto tour of the Military History Battlefield. We were here about 20+ years ago, also stayed in this KOA (same owners). Very nice campground convenient to Gettysburg sights. It was an impressive day beginning with perfect weather. The new visitor center’s Cyclorama depicting the Civil War Battle at Gettysburg is very ...
