“Better the second time around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

My wife and I returned to this location two years after our first visit. The experience was again outstanding on all points. The hospitality of the owner (Mark) and staff was fantastic. The room was large and comfortable, the meals tasty with large portions. We will be returning very soon.

The hospitality, delicious food, and beautiful facility made this 2-night stay the highlight of our journey exploring historic Civil War sites.
Each evening we treasured our time in front of the roaring fire in the great room with mugs of hot chocolate &/or glasses of wine. The inviting well-appointed bedrooms were fully equipped with gas fireplaces, well-lit reading and writing areas, and large tubs. What more could one ask!
Mark and his staff presented guests with picturesque and delicious full-course breakfasts enjoyed by all. We will definitely return!

We spent 3 splendid nights in this bucolic farm house inn. Our visit to at this inn and enchanting part of Maryland exceeded our expectations. We are already planning our return visit. We loved our large totally relaxing bedroom (with fireplace and large tub) and the bed was more comfortable than our own bed! Mark and his staff were the perfect hosts – making us feel welcome, providing travel tips, ensuring the common room fireplaces were ablaze and even offering complimentary wine and spirits. There is so much to do and see in this Maryland countryside- something for everyone! We recommend a short drive to historic Harpers Ferry and of course Gettysburg. Oh, and did I mention we got married during our visit and Mark and staff went above and beyond to make it special?

Room Tip: Any room will be well appointed, quiet and totally comfortable!

Mark is a friendly and fun host who lives up to his own personal expectations of great service and strives to accommodate his guests. The rooms were beautiful; rustic and luxurious at the same time. A warm cozy atmosphere, with a huge fireplace in the great room and books all over the place. We found it everything we would want and more. We've already booked our next stay!

We stumbled upon this place and were extremely pleased! Very comfortable, beautiful, bucolic setting. Great quiet place for a getaway, romantic or otherwise. Food was fine; typical B & B fare. Hosts were gracious and engaging. If you want a TV in your room, you might as well go to Motel 6; if you want a nice place to either get some alone time or enjoy your significant other, this is the place!

Room Tip: We stayed in the "Battlefield Overlook room." Great view. I think all rooms have screene...

Stayed two nights to attend the Contemporary American Theatre Festival at Shepherdstown. We were very comfortable in the 'Overlook ' room and the air conditioning managed to cope with the crushing heat wave. We appreciated the screened porches both downstairs and off our room, as well as the fridge stocked with cold sodas, wine and beer. The room was clean, free of the dustiness and clutter found in some b and b's. The room could use more light to read by.

Keeping in mind that this is an expensive (almost $300 per night) place....
Breakfast at 9 - in practice considerably later -- was too late, and took too long to serve. It would be better to accommodate guests' preferred time. Since several previous commenters have mentioned this same issue, I am wondering whether the establishment is even paying attention to the feedback they are getting.
The place has a pet cat and rooster that are both loud and intrusive. These animals cross the line from 'quirky and charming' to ' unpleasant and obnoxious'.
It is odd that they would have placed the noisy main AC unit right below the rooms overlooking the view. Similarly, building an inn from scratch, why put the washbasin in the bedroom instead of within the bathroom ?
Anyway, overall, a pleasant, quiet, discreet, nature-oriented place.

Room Tip: Choose the rooms overlooking Antietam, not he parking lot.

Sorry to have fallen short of perfect. I just became aware of the way Trip Advisor works and the things that people say that are good and bad and that I can respond to them. One thing about the internet, you don't have to talk to someone, you can write anything. Most of our guests love the layout of the rooms and come here for what we have to offer. 95 Acres of seclution, peace and quiet. Sorry about the rooster, I don't know what happened but he must have gotten out. He has been taken to another farm and is very happy. The cat is an outdoor cat - "Mr. Meowsers" friendly and effectivly in charge of fending off small 4 legged animals. He is sweet and kind and I don't like cats, but have adopted him and love him a lot. The majority of our guests love him too. The AC Unit is over 50 feet away from the Inn and can hardly be heard. It is even covered and shielded from the rooms. There would be no better way to deal with it other than turning it off. None of the porches overlook the parking lot, but the Garden room dose face in that direction but buffered by a pond and beautiful garden. Warm Regards.
