“A Wonderful and Welcoming Experience”
Reviewed 5 May 2009

From the moment we arrived at the Brafferton Inn, we were treated like family. Our hosts were very welcoming, the inn was beautifully appointed, and our room was a restful retreat. Oh! and the breakfasts were divine, too. The place is immaculately clean as well. If/when we return to Gettysburg, The Brafferton Inn is where we will rest our heads, without a doubt.

Tim & Joan great hosts & provided excellent service. Chamberlin Room cozy with private bath across hall. Still was private enough. No TV in room so bring good book. Clean & great location middle of downtown. Quiet on back side of house. Outside patio nice to sit if weather is good. Great breakfast, coffee always available, Wi-Fi in living room. Parking somewhat of a pain - had to park in deck behind house or feed parking meter from 8 to 8. Fair value considering location, good breakfast, feel of privacy, attention of owners and met some other nice guests. Would stay at the Brafferton again.

My husband & I were given a gift certificate from our children for our 25th anniversary. (I was looking online & saw that they were having a special for the month of March - reduced rates for the king & queen suites. We chose the Brafferton Suite which is a beautiful room with a king size bed, fireplace, small sitting area, a jacuzzi tub, small fridge & microwave. There was also a separate shower. The room was decorated very beautifully and was cozy. There was also a balcony available to use had the weather been a bit nicer.

The service at the Inn was outstanding, starting with a tour of how to get around the Inn and the parking situation. (Our room was actually separate from the main Inn so we had to walk outside in the morning for our breakfast.)

In the morning we had fresh fruit for breakfast, a yummy lemon poppy seed muffin, and then our choice of a ham/sausage casserole with potatoes or raspberry cheesecake french toast. There was also coffee, tea, and orange juice.

My only complaints would be the following: we only had 1 year to use the gift certificate; our room was above the street so we heard a lot of traffic noise (especially since it snowed that night and the snow plow trucks kept rumbling past); there was a sign hanging outside the one window and it squeaked everytime the wind blew; the blinds didn't shut much outside light out of the room.

I planned a 4 day getaway with my hubby as he had never been to Gettysburg. He loves anything to do with the Civil War. After checking out all the B & B's I decided on the Brafferton. How exciting it was when we got there. We were met by Brian one of three of the owners. He was delightful. Proceeded to show us the property which by the way has 18 bedrooms in 4 buildings. We decided on the Brafferton Suite. It had a king bed, glass fireplace that could be used from either the bedroom or sitting room. The TV was also on a swivel that could be seen from either room. It has a 2 person jacuzzi, fridge and microwave. The suite was understated as I had seen from a picture on the internet. We had 2 choices for breakfast each morning that Brian made starting with a fruit cup(all fresh), homemade pastries or potato pancakes and various entrees. In the 4 days we were there everything was superb. I cannot say enough of the Brafferton and will return often. We have stayed at many B & Bs and this one is by far at the top of our list. Check it out you won't be dissapointed.

We stayed in the Brafferon Suite for 2 nights. The room was huge and spotless. The bed was wonderful and the whole decor was just lovely. As stated it is at the front of the property and if traffic noise bothers you just bring some ear plugs. Parking may be an issue but worth every bit of the trouble you may have. It is all worth it to have such a great room. The inn keepers are very friendly and helpful and the breakfasts some of the best we have ever had. It is served elegantly and relaxed in the beautiful dining room. If you are trying to decide where to stay in Gettysburg you will not regret picking the Brafferton.

We had a wonderful weekend at the Brafferton Inn in Gettysburg. The inn was lovely and comfortable - we stayed in the Battleroom which was in the front of the house - on the website it states this room can be noisy - well it was a little noisy but such a lovely room it was worth the noise. The Inn is located in the heart of Gettysburg - after touring the battlefield we parked our car and walked everywhere. Our hosts were great - they helped with recommending restaurants and making dinner reservations for us. Breakfast was fabulous! We had a wonderful stay and can't wait to visit again.

My husband and I just spent a long weekend in Gettysburg. The Brafferton Inn was wonderful! The staff was very friendly, service was excellent and the location was perfect. The Inn is located downtown making it an excellent choice for biking or walking to dinner and the Battlegrounds. Breakfast was delicious and the afternoon cookies and coffee were a great treat! The gardens provide an relaxing retreat to read or plan your next days activities. We stayed in two different rooms and both were decorated beautifully. We enjoyed the fireplace and the jacquizzi tub. We will definitely be returning to the Inn again.
