“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

A great place to stay in Sharpsburg. The Inn itself is part of the local history and is within driving distance of other historic sites (i.e. Harper' Ferry) and recreation areas. Joanne, the innkeeper, was helpful, knowledgable and a very good cook!!! We had an exceptional dinner at The Press Room in Sheperdstown which is only three miles from the Inn.

We stayed in the Generals Quarters which was wonderful, a mix of old and new. The innkeepers were exceptionally hospitable with a great knowledge of the area. The stay was extremely memorable creating a oneness with our history. George and Alicia from Georgia

Fine place to stay! Sharpsburg is a sleepy little town right on the edge of the Antietam Battlefield. Nearby is Harper’s Ferry. A block away from the Inn is a pub that serves excellent pub food and is very hospitable. 3 miles away is Shepherdstown, WVa, where there are a number of fine restaurants and casual fare. The Inn itself dates from the early 1800’s, and is fully restored and upgraded. The rooms are large, all have private baths, and my room (Clara Barton Suite) also had a sitting room. The room was spotlessly clean, and all the amenities of home were provided, and I didn’t hear any noise from the other guests. One of the highlights was breakfast at 8:30AM, a feast of coffee, juice, fresh fruit, fresh baked breads and jams and a “main course”. Scrumptious. Joann and Paul were very hospitable and accommodating, and arranged for me to have a battlefield guide for the 2 days I was there. Looking forward to returning!

We had a wonderful stay at the Rohrbrach B & B, thanks Joanne & Paul. Also finding our Grove family owned the home way back was a plus. We definitely plan to return when we tour this area of Maryland again.

One of the best breakfasts ever, spacious and comfortable rooms, Joanne was caring and gracious - BUT, if you rent one of their bikes, if they still aren't providing a bike repair kit, take your cell phone and the phone number of the Inn. I got a flat tire 5 miles from the Inn and had to run the bike back most of the way to make a dinner reservation. I all worked out. Before the run, I was still feeling full from breakfast. :)

This B&B was perfect to really be part of the Civil War experience. If Antietam is part of your trip, the Jacob Rohrbach Inn is a perfect compliment to your trip. Joann and Paul were wonderful and helpful in helping plan this retreat. Great coffee, cookies and breakfast was outstanding. The house was so rich with history and the location was perfect.

Amazing room, perfect location, lovely helpful innkeepers. Great coffee and breakfast. Can't say enough good things about this experience. Fantastic find. We definitely will return soon. Not so happy with this Trip Advisor form however.
