I stayed at the Town's Inn last night and after re-reviewing some of the negative reviews I feel it's important to set the context for potential guests. We absolutely adored this place despite a number of areas that could certainly be nitpicked by a traveler with high expectations. I feel that anyone that claims "this is the worst place I... More

The Town's Inn is well situated right in the middle of Harpe's Ferry. The initial impression of the exterior is very charming and makes you feel like you are staying in the middle of the old/lower town. Parking: The Parking situation is difficult in this part of town. We had asked for one of the Inn's two private spots as... More

Built in 1840, The Towns Inn is in the heart of historic Harpers Ferry but here's a tip if you have trouble walking: you need to be able to negotiate small hills and steps to really enjoy Harpers Ferry. The inn is close enough to walk everywhere to see historic sites that figured in the Civil War. The beds are... More

We stayed here on our recent Bike trip from Pittsburgh to DC. This place is simply a must. Harpers Ferry is one of the most beautiful towns I have seen in the States, and The Town's Inn definitely completes the picture. Its full of charm, very welcoming hosts, and good beer. Nothing bad to say about it.

We were not staying there but picked it to have our dinner. Our food was good, homemade food but you have to order a la carte (if you want veggies or anything you have to order them separately). Their mac and cheese was very creamy and good. The dining area is small (room for maybe 10 - 12 people) but... More

Wonderful historic inn. We stayed in the Appalachian Room which had a private, newly remodeled bath. The shower/tub is awesome, but ran a little low on hot water too soon. The staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, cozy and inviting. The restaurant has the best hours in town, but we could not utilize it because was booked... More

We spent two nights at the Inn, and it was a very mixed experience. The location is great - a five minute walk from the Amtrak station (albeit up 60+ steps - the town is built into a mountainside). In the off season, the Inn's restaurant also may be the only place open (we had a rainy day with most... More

This B&B is fantastic! The owner and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. They are a joy to be around. The Inn is a quaint, old house, which brings with it both the good and the bad. :) It's beautiful, but you have to work to find space for electronics needing to charge and space to hang clothes. Each room... More

We went camping on a winter night near harpers ferry and wanted to warm good food in the morning. Nothing seemed to be open until we got here. Great coffee and comfort food. Everyone was very friendly as well.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
***Rates starting at $120*** This family-friendly historic Inn (circa 1840) is located in the center of the Harpers Ferry living history village situated at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, just steps from the C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail, as well as the storybook train station served by Amtrak and MARC trains. Open from 6 a.M. - 10 P.M. Every day of the year, the restaurant on the first level of the Inn offers indoor and patio dining featuring popular cuisine, including homemade specialties and healthy options. Also on the first floor is a Sundry / Snack / Supply Shoppe which has been described as a "high-end convenience store, a mini-health food store, and an old-fashioned country store with local products." The second floor consists of two bedrooms with beautiful slate-tile private bathrooms. A parlor containing a treasure of books, toys, and games is situated on the third floor, along with another bedroom. Free WiFi is available. Step outside and enjoy river views, river sports, hiking, bicycling, museums, shopping, and more in this quaint town that is adjacent to the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and surrounded by other national parks, farms, and Civil War battlegrounds. Although located only 60 miles from DC, the Inn is "a world away" from life in modern urban and suburban cities. We invite you to travel "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house" for relaxation, recreation, and retreat. ... more   less
