The last day of December 2015 was rainy and cold at the historic town of Harper's Ferry; the Shenandoah River looked engorged and distended by the rains, the trails of the Harper's Ferry National Park were too slippery for our inappropriate shoes, and the small but cute train station held a few visitors in the mist. The train station was... More

Inn needs to be updated, nothing special, very old and numerous trip hazards. Dining establishment needs a great deal of work, none of our meals arrived at the same time and meal components arrived late. Would not recommend. Entry arrived later than sides

This is an very old, rustic, poorly maintained, dirty establishment. We stayed in the Mountain View Room. There were cobwebs all over. Every surface seemed covered with knock knacks with a cluttered feel. The bathroom is awful. The shower is not separate from the commode and soaks everything in the room. The shower curtain is little help. The queen bed... More

Harper's Ferry is amazing and the Town's Inn an integral part of the fabric. You need to know before you stay that this is an old building, so it's not wheelchair accessible and the floors aren't level, but so long as you accept that then the place is just fine. Where they fall down is they don't seem to know... More

This property is right in the historic district, just steps away from all of the NPS buildings, restaurants, and sights. I had my two sons (9 and 6) with me and we stayed in the Friendship room. It was a really cute room, with a queen and daybed (and clean). Most B&Bs won't allow kids, but this place does (technically... More

We went to Harper's Ferry after a day of tubing on the Shenandoah. We saw people eating out front of The Town's Inn and decided to give it a try. It was a beautiful evening so we wanted to sit outside. We sat on the back patio. It doesn't have any views and you can tell this is an historic... More

My 9 year old grandson and I traveled by train from Baltimore. Arriving at the Town's Inn was a fine way to continue the adventure. In late August the staff was thin (summer student help having left) so we had to be patient about waiting for food service. But everyone was very courteous and cheerful. The 1840s building, and especially... More

After meeting a lady on the street, we talked to her, she said she was a local and we asked her where a good place was to eat. She recommended 'The Towns Inn', so we went there. Slowest service ever. After the confusion on where to enter, we got seated in a back smelly, dirty looking patio. A man took... More

Our family of five enjoyed the best rest on our bicycle journey along the C&O canal at this lovely inn in Harper's Ferry. The staff were accommodating and friendly and catered to our every need. Highly recommend this cozy establishment to anyone needing a getaway from the hustle and bustle.

We were looking for a period experience and this fit the bill. The location is simply unbeatable. We slept in the Potomac Room which had a day bed and a double. There was not a private bath in the room but there are two full baths at the end of the hall. If you enjoy a dated atmosphere and are... More
