March 2014 - The ambience (at the Fairfield Inn) was fantastic, as well as the character of the waiter – food was excellent – very lovely to be here. Food was exceptional! Kudos! – Linda B.

December 2013 - What a wonderful restaurant! I just discovered it tonight on a web search, and quickly made a reservation. The new owner of the Fairfield Inn (from Adams County Winery), provided a gracious tour, including some fascinating bits of history. Imagine an Inn (yes, there are beautiful rooms as well), in constant operation since 1757. Much of the original features still exist, and the numerous stories about the building as well as the town, and a very special “secret” room, where escaped slaves were hidden during the Civil War are all there for you to soak in. Don’t forget to leave a penny in one of the stone walls and make a wish! All of them are collected at the end of the year and donated to the Salvation Army. For such a great cause, how can your wish not come true??? – Erica S., Maryland

July 2013 - My husband and I stayed in the JEB Stuart room at The Fairfield Inn for the last two days of the 150th reenactment of the battle of Gettysburg. Each room has a story to tell, and for history buffs the slanting floors, original farmhouse, antiques and ghost stories are part of the authenticity of the experience of staying there. Kudos to John, the new owner, for keeping the history alive. We found our room to be comfortable, the mattress firm, the linen and bathroom very clean, the television and wifi working, and the staff friendly, knowledgeable, and very accommodating. We had a lovely dinner in the dining room seated next to the old hearth (loved the biscuits!) and had an after dinner chat with none other than President Lincoln ( a local reenactor) which added a wonderful dimension to the meal. The breakfast was large and satisfying. It was nice to retire to Fairfield each evening to avoid the large crowds in Gettysburg during the reenactment, and we found the drive time back and forth to be brief. All in all our stay at The Fairfield Inn was wonderful, and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again during our next trip to Gettysburg. – Stacy G., Kentucky

July 2013 - We stayed here the first week in July during the 150th anniversary celebration/reenactment of the great battle of Gettysburg. We had the Major Sam Starr room way up on the third floor. It’s the smaller of their rooms but well appointed and even has a Jacuzzi. Other rooms are quite a bit larger and all are period furnished and decorated. The whole experience was fantastic – well beyond fabulous. Staff is wonderful and service was tops. This place had the best bath towels of any on our three week trip! Staying in such an historic place brings all kinds of emotions. To think Lee and his officers stopped there for dinner on their retreat from Gettysburg is simply awesome. We had Lee’s menu selections a couple times and it’s delicious. In fact, General Lee and his wife (living history buffs) stopped in during one of our dinners and gave us a detailed insight into their private lives, marital squabbles, and coping with the war and Lee’s absence from home. That was quite a memorable event…. All their dinner, lunch and breakfast offerings are very good — really great restaurant! It is a lovely respite from the bustle of Gettysburg tourists and only eight miles down the road. Loved every part of it and wish it wasn’t so far from us so we could get back more often. – Steve F., Louisiana

2013 - I wanted to stay in a place near Gettysburg that wasn’t just another ordinary run of the mill hotel or motel. The Fairfield Inn fits this category in more ways than one; this is a place with a great history to it especially from the Civil War and before. The rooms were extremely clean and bear a strong resemblance to hotel rooms of the 19th century but with the modern comforts that we would expect today. In terms of price, it is great value considering that one would most likely pay more for the same type of accommodation in Gettysburg itself. The staff were wonderful and friendly. The restaurant served good food and is fairly good value in comparison with what one might find in Gettysburg. If you like a quiet location within 15 minutes of Gettysburg, with an illustrious history, and something different from just another motel or hotel this is the place for you. – Greg, Canada
