We arrived at the Carriage Inn after several days visiting Frederick MD, Gettysburg PA and Harpers Ferry WV. We had been immersed in history, visited welcome centers and taken private tours of the battlefields. Imagine our surprise when we learned that we would be sleeping a house that held several generals and important civil war meetings.
The B&B is artfully decorated with period furniture, historical books & history books to read, civil war prints on the walls, and beautiful arrangements of flowers and other memorabilia.
Beyond this wonderful feeling of being in a southern mansion during that time period, the welcoming warmth of the managers made our short stay a special one. From the smile that greeted us at the door, the beautiful room we slept in, and the complimentary tea and soda, to the delicious breakfast, we felt like cherished guests.
