If you are a Civil War buff, as we are, and you are visiting the Antietam battlefield, as we have on several occasions, there are only two places to stay--the Inn at Antietam, which is located on the battlefield, and the Bavarian Inn, located a few miles away on the Potomac River in Shepardstown, West Virginia. We have stayed at the Inn at Antietam on three occasions, the penthouse twice. Bob and Charles are superb hosts. The breakfasts are wonderful. In three days, we had plenty of time to cover the entire battlefield, visit the adjacent National Cemetery, nearby South Mountain and the Pry and Douglas homes, shop in Shepardstown and take a trip to historic Harper's Ferry. Read the new book, "The Long Road to Antietam" by Richard Slotkin, then check in at Inn at Antietam and visit the Cornfield, West Woods, Bloody Lane and Burnside's Bridge and it will all come to life before your eyes. Sharpsburg hasn't changed much since 1862. Oh, and don't forget to stop at Robert E. Lee's headquarters. He would have loved to stay at Inn at Antietam.
