My husband and I stayed here September 1-4, 2013. We stayed the first night in the Jackson Room - the wonderul spacious first floor room were you step UP into the bathroom - cool! Then for the remainder of our stay we were in the General's Quarters - a beautiful separate suite in the old summer kitchen. Both rooms/suite were beautifully decorated, immaculately clean, with all modern amenities - yet evoking the period of the Civil War. As we love history, this was perfect for us! Only minutes away from Antietam, Harper's Ferry, Frederick, etc. The grounds were also beautifully landscaped and maintained. The inn keepers were warm welcoming and VERY knowledgeable about the area, restaurants, etc. The breakfasts were fabulous - and the portions were not overwhelming. We even met the resident cat - Dusty- who was sweet and loved to be petted! We walked to Bender's Tavern each night for dinner and to Nutter's Ice Cream shop (each only a 5 minute walk)for ice cream which we enjoyed eating on the porch of the General's Quarters. We highly recommend Jacob Rohrbach Inn for serenity, outstanding customer service and wonderful accomodations. We hated to say good-bye!
