Beautiful Inn, close to Antietam Battlefield. The owner Joanne met us walking into the inn, we arrived a little earlier for check in, she got us all settled into our room, The Thomas Jackson room. We were traveling with our teenage son and Joanne set up an airbed for him to sleep on. The room was beautifully furnished and comfortable,... More

Great location for seeing the play festival at Shepherdstown, visiting the Antietam battlefield or doing river activities. Wonderful hosts, resh flowers and comfortable beds in the rooms, private balconies overlooking the pretty gardens, great breakfast, and, best of all, wonderful home-roasted coffee! Would recommend for romantic get-aways or get-togethers with friends.

Everything about our 1 day stay here was enjoyable and memorable. Joanne met us at the door and showed us our room. It was beautifully furnished in the 1800's style, and the bed was perhaps the most comfortable I have ever slept on (Antietam Room). She gave us tips about the restaurants in the area, answered all of our questions... More

Spent an anniversary weekend at this lovely B&B to do some area biking. Ideal accommodations; great room, lovely grounds, quality breakfast. Met interesting guests and the surrounding area is tops for riding. There may be more to do in Sheperdstown, but this is where you go to get away

We stayed at this lovely inn three nights and enjoyed every minute. We felt very welcome and comfortable. Ann was the temporary innkeeper and was very gracious, and also served delicious breakfasts each day. We biked the C&O Canal Trail one day and biked through the battlefield the next day. Also spent time relaxing on the porch, reading and petting... More

This inn is SUPER! The hosts bend over backwards to make sure you feel welcome. JoAnn met us at the door and showed us around. Our room was nice and the bed inviting. She advised me to watch a DVD about the Battle of Antietam and it was very helpful. Breakfast was very good and we enjoyed visiting with everyone-that's... More

We stayed in the Harper's Ferry Suite which was perfect as we had our 16-year old grandson with us. The TV was in a small sitting room separate from the bedroom, so the grandson could watch TV while we read and/or slept. Conversation at breakfast was lively and Joanne gave us some very interesting history about the house. The only... More

Stayed 2 nights while we toured Antietam, Harper's Ferry, and Monocacy. Extremely friendly owners, enjoyed the company of the other guests, breakfast was wonderful. Very accomodating - made me a special pot of cocoa! Only a short distance to the battlefield and lots of good eating in town, Shepardstown, and Boonsboro. Never had a bad meal. Hope the bikers got...

Great location to the battlefield and to a number of excellent restaurants. Hosts were great. Really enjoyed our breakfast "history lessons" about the battlefield, the inn, and the surrounding town. Had a great time.

We arrived around 5:30, and were asked whether we planned to visit the Antietam battlefield. When we said, unfortunately we are getting here so late that it just isn't possible. She told us that while the visitor's center was closed, the park would be open until dark and offered to lend us a CD of an audio guide to the... More
