“This is one of the best B&B’s we have ever stayed in. Eileen, Dennis and Betty are wonderful. They are so informative about the area and spot on with their recommendations of places to experience. The breakfasts were wonderful and the chocolate chip cookies were a wonderful afternoon treat. We enjoyed our morning brews each day after breakfast on the comfortable porch. Gave us time to plan our activities for the day in a relaxed atmosphere. The Inn is located far enough out of town to not experience the traffic noise and yet close enough to be into town in a jiffy. We recommend the Lightner to anyone traveling to Gettysburg.”
