The Hoover Family owns and runs the Lightner Farmhouse. We quickly realized when we arrived that they formerly ran the Cashtown Inn. Eileen welcomed and greeted us right away. She provided us the history of the Lightner Farmhouse with just the right amount of information. We were given a quick tour of the house, received our keys, and received information about activities available during our stay.

We loved that they had a historian available to talk about the Lightner Farmhouse and the events that occurred during the war at Gettysburg. If you are into paranormal investigation, Betty Roche is amazing and extremely fun and knowledgeable (we loved our tour with her).

Most of all we appreciated all of the small touches that the Hoovers provided during our experience. We don't want to spoil them for you, but trust me they covered things well.

The food and service at breakfast was perfect! Well exceeded our expectation. Jason is an amazing cook / chef. There is only so much you can do for breakfast and it was delicious. Not to mention Jason was very friendly and great to talk to.

We look forward to going back again in the future.

We stayed at Lightner Farmhouse in April with several friends. It was the second stay for my wife and I. Both visits were could not have been better. We stay in B&Bs quite a bit and the Lightner Farmhouse rates at the top of our experiences. Eileen was extremely helpful in finding us find an experienced guide on both visits. Most people come to Gettysburg for to learn about the battle and the historical aspects of the house are well documented. All of that, combined with exceptional hosts and delicious breakfasts, make this a must for anyone visiting Gettysburg.

The folks who own and run this little gem are wonderful! They were very gracious to our group and treated us like family- we used their kitchen for our supplies, they had great and delicious breakfasts,and they made fresh cookies daily. It was a wonderful historic place to stay and I would again. I slept like a log. A few miles outside gettysburg so removed but only a few minutes drive. The barroom downstairs was great for us to hang out in.

My wife and I spent the weekend of February 22nd with Eileen & Dennis at the Lightner Farmhouse. It was an awesome experience. They are such great hosts, great cooks, and so accommodating.
We were celebrating the anticipation of our first child and I asked Eileen to put together a small care package for my expecting wife. For breakfast on Sunday morning, she had a small vase with fresh-cut pink flowers (since we're having a daughter), wrapped up with a cute little bow, placed on her plate. So cute and precious.

Thanks Eileen & Dennis. It was a great experience!
