We stayed one night on a short weekend getaway from Washington DC. The innkeepers were extremely gracious and provided everything for our comfort. The rooms were quiet, spacious and immaculate and were equipped with DVD's and lots of reading material relating to Antietam. The common parlor was stocked with snacks and beverages as well as more historical information. The breakfast... More

My parents, husband and myself went here the first weekend in June to celebrate my birthday and we were all super impressed with not only the beauty and attention to detail the innkeepers kept in regards to the aesthetic of the interior and exterior of the inn, but their care and attention to detailing in making us feel right at...

This was our second stay, and the first time we learned that new innkeepers had bought it earlier this year. They rearranged and updated the dining room, did some painting, and updated some of the fixtures and amenities in the room. Last time, we stayed in the General's Quarters, which is a separate dwelling near the main house. This time,... More

Our room was big and cozy. Our breakfast was gluten free and very good. I can't say enough about the Inn. We really enjoyed our visit and we are already talking about going back. We were able to walk to dinner, with options right in town.

We stayed here after playing golf nearby with another couple. Both rooms were very comfortable. The grounds are lovely, lots of color with a beautiful flower garden and pots of annuals scattered around. The new owners are spending a lot of time selecting appropriate paint and furniture for the interior and doing a terrific job. Breakfast was fabulous, way too... More

We planned a visit to Antietam Battlefield and chose to stay at The Jacob Rohrbach Inn because it was nearby. We found it to be a wonderful experience. The property was a beautiful,historical home dating back to 1804. It was updated, well maintained and spotless. The proprietors made us feel like family, and the gourmet breakfast was outstanding. We stayed... More

We stayed here over the Memorial Day weekend and enjoyed it very much. We were in the Antietam Room and found it charming and comfortable. It was upstairs and there was an outside porch with comfortable chairs affording a view of the spacious yard which was alive with birds, rabbits and squirrels and neatly tended gardens. The owners were very... More

We recently stayed at the Inn. It was a wonderful experience. The room was incredible. The owner Chris made us feel welcome and we really enjoyed talking with him. It has every amenity you could ask for. The yard was really nice and we had our own private porch. We went to the battlefields and went to dinner in nearby... More

My girlfriend, her son and I stayed here over the Memoorial Day weekend and were very pleased. Inn keeper Chris Vincent was very welcoming. We stayed in the General's Quarters and it was great. Sharpsburg was pleasant and unassuming. It's proximity to Harpers Ferry, Antietam and Shepardstown, WV was very convenient. Other than some loud motorcycles at times, it was... More

Let me start this review by saying this was my first B&B experience. Up to this point I have avoided B&B's as I value my privacy and had a perception staying in one would be like staying in someone home with that not quite comfortable feeling. In this case I was in Sharpsburg to visit the Antietam battlefield and wanted... More
