“Great hospitality”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Room was clean, roomy, and well appointed. Breakfast was excellent, and the host and hostess were helpful, friendly, and informative. We enjoyed the area very much and found plenty to keep us busy during our stay. The only drawbacks were the somewhat lumpy bed (could sleep on it, just not as well as on a newer mattress) and feather pillows. More modern bedding would have made for a better night's rest. Otherwise, would go there again, especially for the nearby towns where the dining was excellent.

Room Tip: The larger rooms are worth the price.

If you are looking for a top notch place to stay in the Antietam area, we recommend the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. We stayed in the General's Quarters cottage, which was private, peaceful, and a wonderful combination of nineteenth century character and today's comfort and convenience. The hospitality is first rate and the breakfasts are awesome. We look forward to our next visit!

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. :)
