We love to go away close to Halloween and wanted a place that was easy to get to, educational, and a little scary. The Lightner Farmhouse B&B was all that and more!
The B&B was a private home at the time of and used as a hospital during the Civil War. It's just beautiful inside and out. The innkeepers are very knowledgeable and friendly. The home outdoors looked lovely although the weather was pretty stormy so we couldn't explore too much. Oh, and the food was yummy!
They have someone come in and give a sortof ghost story type of thing in the basement. I thought it was pretty lame but my husband liked it.
While they don't really play up that the house is haunted we really believe it is! We were both awakened at about the same time each night we were there by strange sounds in the hallway. It sounded like someone dragging something heavy across the floor (a body maybe?). Then even more nerve-wracking was the sound of someone trying to get in the room (turning and shaking of the knob, etc.).
The Lightner is a short drive from the city itself and from the battlefied. We really encourage people to stay there if they're going to Gettysburg.
