Farnsworth House Inn
Ranked #13 of 23 Gettysburg B&B and Inns
Reviewed 2 July 2003

On June 28th my husband and I had dinner reservations at the Farnsworth House for 7:00 pm.We arrived at 6:55.Our hostess muttered a profanity when we told her our last name as she crossed us off her list. I should have taken this as an omen.We were finally seated at 7:10. At 7:25 a waitress came up to us and apologised for the long wait. She said that there was trouble in the kitchen and someone would take our order shortly. Ten minutes later someone finally did take our order. My husband almost walked out. Things went better from here. The food came fast after the order was taken. The salmon was good, the shrimp alfredo fantastic. However, we highly doubt that we will eat here again. We also had reservations for the ghost stories downstairs. The storyteller was like a 45 rpm record being played on speed 78. What we could understand was interesting. She was sorry that she had to cut the stories short because she had to do a ghost walk. At the Farnsworth House, $$$$$$$ is first, service is second.

Went on Farnsworth House Inn Ghost Walk, had been there about a year ago and enjoyed it very much, this time it was horrible! Guide smoked smelly cigar while telling stories that weren't very good anyway. Emailed to suggest guide not smoke on tour (and of all things a cigar!) and they didn't even bother to respond. Guess they want your money more than your repeat business. Heard they are a different company now anyway. Former company is somewhere just up the street and now called Sleepy Hollow, we'll go there next time and get satisfaction like before and much better stories, not cigar smoke! And the Farnsworth even raised their prices! What a joke.
