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

We stayed at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn for two nights and greatly appreciated the comfort, charm, and friendliness of the inn. The owners were so welcoming and helpful, especially when we had car trouble and needed assistance. They were more than gracious and made a difficult situation much easier to deal with. Chris is an expert on the history of... More

My wife and I recently spent three nights at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The building is historically interesting and quaint. Our room was generously sized, with comfortable beds. Many rooms in the Inn are being "refreshed" as I write this, so it should only get nicer. The innkeepers, Amy and Chris, were friendly and helpful... More

The Jacob Rohrbach Inn B&B is right in Sharpsburg a historic town relatively preserved as it was at the time of the Antietam Civil War battle fought there on Sept 17, 1862. The best part about staying here is the people. Proprietors Amy and Chris Vincent are very friendly and helpful. One of the other guests' car broke down while... More

We stayed one night, and could not have been happier. The room and common spaces are very well maintained, modernized, and exceptionally comfortable while retaining their historic charm. Chris and Amy were very welcoming when we arrived and provided great recommendations for nearby restaurants and activities. The amenities and room made for a very relaxing night after spending the afternoon... More

We loved this Inn! Sharpsburg is a small town, and this Inn fit the bill. We were met by the Innkeepers with coffee, snacks, drinks, etc. and our room was on the back of the house, snug, spacious and quiet. We could walk to our restaurant for dinner and then to The Nutter Ice Cream Shop for the most delicious... More

Lovely home run by a very likeable and knowledgable couple, willing to share conversations about the history of the area. Breakfast was a treat! A short drive to the battlefield, and they provided the audio for the drive. Rooms are clean, and grounds are lovely. Would go back without hesitation.

The innkeepers, Amy and Chris Vincent, we so gracious and made my ten year old daughter feel right at home. We stayed in the General's Headquarters behind the Inn. It is a fantastic old summer kitchen made into a special get-away with a private bath and reading area. They were very helpful in us locating a delightful restaurant in Shepherdtown... More

Loved our 2-night stay at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn! Chris and Amy are wonderful hosts (Chris even packed us a "to-go" breakfast when we had a very early departure one morning!), and we definitely recommend staying in The General's Quarters...so private and cozy! Although the weather was a bit too chilly for a planned bike ride, the Inn offers bicycles... More

This was a lovely place for a winter weekend of exploring Antietam and Sharpsburg. The historic home is cozy and interesting and the accommodations quite comfortable. The highlights were the amazing breakfasts and the knowledgeable innkeepers. We had our son with us (ten) and it was a great trip for him.
