I have stayed twice at Lightner Farmhouse in Gettysburg, and both experiences were wonderful. My wife and I have always enjoyed visiting historic sites, and the fact that Lightner has it's own history was fantastic! Built in the 1860's, the rooms have a lovely old country feel that added so much to our experience.
Both rooms we stayed in were very well kept and had there own mini water jugs with cups and a TV. The beds were quite comfortable, and the bathrooms were clean and contained high quality hypo-allergenic hand soaps as well as the typical shampoo, conditioner, and facial soap. My wife particularly enjoyed the tile in the bathrooms, the rest of the rooms were original hardwood flooring.
The Inn is owned by a husband and wife, Dennis and Eillen Hoover, who were very kind, and assisted us every time we even mentioned anything. Eileen, in particular impressed us with her knowledge of Gettysburg, she apparently used to give guided tours there! Breakfast was nice, and the couple was very accomodating, even asking the night before if there was anything we really wanted to eat, or if we had any dietary restrictions. There is a common room with a mini fridge filled with sodas and beers free for the taking behind an authentic wooden bar.
We had a lovely stay, and plan to go back. There is still much of Gettysburg we have left to see! I would reccomend this inn to anyone.
