We enjoyed Donn and Marie's lovely B&B. It was a great place to return to after viewing Harpers Ferry, Antietam Battlefield, or whatever. The breakfasts are terrific, and the house is attractive and comfortable. Sit on the front porch swing or in the parlor and have their afternoon snack.

We had a wonderful time. Our room, which was the least expensive was large and comfortable, and reasonably priced. The hosts, Donn and Marie, were lovely, and prepared a healthy breakfast each day. They welcomed us to their home as if we were friends. Will definitely stay again.

Not only a must on the list of any Civil War history buff, but a must for everyone! The inn is beautifully kept, and you are treated to the history of the home upon your arrival. Oh, and don't forget the snacks! The innkeepers are warm and wonderful, with lots of helpful hints on what to see and do. And... More

This place is first class all the way. When we arrived, Donn met us at the door, reviewed what we needed to know and offered us fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. He then sat us down in the parlor and explained the history of the home, including a meeting between Gen. Grant and Gen. Sheridan during the Civil War in... More

my wife and I just returned to Ohio after spending the weekend at the Inn. We felt that we were staying with old friends. The owners, Donn and Marie were extraordinary. Being a history buff, the story behind the inn is really neat and well described by the owners. This just made our visit to Harpers Ferry and Charles Town... More

We picked this B and B after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor. It was located exactly half way between a 16 hour road trip between Ct and South Carolina. We have stayed in other b and b's before, and would rate this number one on our list. The history alone is worth seeing and staying there will bring you... More

My husband and I stayed there for a couple of nights on our first weekend out without the kids in more than two years. We had a wonderful time. The place was beautiful, the history of the house really interesting, and the hosts went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. Plus Donn prepared some terrific gourmet breakfasts!... More

When parents take a break from parenting to reconnect with each other for a weekend, they are a better parent for doing it! And the kids might even miss you! :-) We hope you were refreshed and renewed! Thanks for coming!! We hope to see you again when you need your next GET AWAY FROM IT ALL!!!! All the best! More

My boyfriend and I recently took a trip to West Virginia and stayed at the Carriage Inn Bed and breakfast to celebrate his birthday. We had a wonderful time at the B&B. Don and Marie are wonderful hosts and the house is full of history and very comfortable. Don's breakfast was delicious! We will definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this B&B at least 20 times. We have family in the area and wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else. Beautiful rooms and property. Best of all, the proprietors are the best. We always feel at home and the homemade breakfasts served are top notch! We recommend the Carriage Inn Bed and Breakfast without any hesitation!
