“The Best Gettysburg Has to Offer”
Reviewed 15 March 2014

GENERAL: I have nothing but fabulous things to say about the Brafferton Inn and its owners and staff. I booked the Hoke Room in early March for my boyfriend and me. We were able to get around 25% off rental prices because it was the off season. Upon arrival, since it was the off season and not all rooms were full, we were upgraded to the Codori Suite. There was no obligation to do this and we really appreciated it. Staying at the Brafferton Inn was the relaxing break we needed and we were sad to leave. We hope to be back again soon!

SUITE: The suite was gorgeous with two high end bathrooms, a king bed, a living area with fireplace, and small appliances for a kitchenette. Everything was spotless and housekeeping was wonderful throughout our two night stay.

BREAKFAST: Included with all room rates is a full breakfast with multiple options that change daily. Everything we had for breakfast was delicious. My boyfriend said he wishes he could just stop in and pay for breakfast. As an added plus, each afternoon after 3pm there were fresh baked cookies in the lobby for guests to enjoy.

LOCATION: The location is also fabulous. Right in historical downtown Gettysburg within walking distance of a number of shops and restaurants. Once you're done with the battlefield, you can come back to your comfortable room and be close to everything.

PARKING: Two of the suites come with parking spots and there is on-street parking around the inn. There is not on-street parking overnight but there is a parking deck located directly behind the inn which is a convenient location. I would not consider the parking to be a reason not to stay here.

We are never disappointed when we stay at the Brafferton. It is the best bed and breakfast in Gettysburg. We stayed for the New Years Holiday and it was wonderful. The rooms are clean and comfortable. We love the rooms with fireplaces. They are so warm and toasty. You could not ask for more. Joan and Brian are wonderful host. They make us feel so welcome each time we stay there. We will be staying again in May, but this time we are staying at the house on Baltimore Street. We will also be back in Oct and stay in the Gettys Suite. I would highly recommend the Brafferton Inn to everyone. You will not be disappointed.

We spent a romantic weekend here using a B&B.com gift card. Their Winter specials make this a great weekend away int he winter months. The Room was very nice with a sitting room, couch and TV. large king sized bed and private bathroom with large whirlpool soaking tub. The food and environment were top notch.

Room Tip: We picked a room on the second floor of the Carriage House in the Lincoln Suite. Great room!

This review is long due, but I have not forgotten how our hosts at the Brafferton saved the day. Last July, my fiance and I were in town to watch the 150th reenactment of the Battle of Gettysburg. We were lucky enough to snag the Loft, and were so excited at the space, the original stonework, and the quaint charm that the entire inn held. (I should also mention the warm chocolate chip cookies that awaited us upon our return every afternoon.) We attended a reenactment on Saturday, and told Brian how excited we were to see the Sunday "grand finale" of Pickett's Charge. When we woke up the next day, I freaked- I lost the tickets! They must have been thrown out accidentally. These tickets were difficult to get, and I was in a panic when I went downstairs. I saw Brian and when he asked how our stay was going and if there was anything I needed (as he did EVERYDAY), I explained our dilemma. He told me to hold on and he'd see what he could do. After searching around the inn, rummaging through desk drawers in the office, and making phone calls, he walked up to me and handed me two tickets to the reenactment. This is the kind of hospitality that one should expect in a bed and breakfast, and all too often don't receive. If you stay here, they will make sure that you have the type of getaway that you will never forget. I will never forget Brian's courtesy and willingness to go the extra mile to help up have the best getaway weekend last year.

The Brafferton was lovely. The owners and staff greet you and give you a tour and the history of the house. The rooms are well kept and welcoming. They provide parking for your vehicle and have a small guest refrigerator on the second floor. The chocolate covered strawberries were delicious! (they make them- not store bought and you can tell). Nice location for walking the downtown "square" areas. They offered three choices for breakfast and upon check-in asked you to select your time preference for breakfast.
They also offer a loyalty plan.
Would love to stay there again!

My wife and I stayed here for two nights during the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address. We have been to Gettysburg many times, but this is the first time we ever stayed in town, and the Brafferton is the place to be! The innkeeper and her staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful, and breakfast is a real treat. We had a room at the top of the steps, with a bedroom and a sitting room. It's close to the center of town and we were able to walk to the ceremony and then continue on to explore part of the battlefield. We walked to bars and restaurants in town. I really like not having to drive, because the main streets can get crowded at times. Al in all, a great place to stay.

My fiance and I are repeat customers at the remarkable Brafferton Inn. It has everything we love from history and charm to delicious breakfasts and the most welcoming, accommodating staff. The rooms are beautiful and comfortable. The location is central and a short walk to many restaurants and shops. Brian, owner/innkeeper, even helped my fiance personalize his proposal by setting up some hometown items in the room before our arrival. The food is so amazing, I still rave about the lemon poppyseed puffs from our very first visit. We love the Brafferton Inn, and we will continue staying here year after year. Whatever your reason for staying, you will be sure to have wonderful memories here.
