“Fabulous Hosts, very helpful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Located right in the Historic District of Harpers Ferry, it is a wonderful Federal style home that has been somewhat modified over the years. As I was the only guest, they gave me General Jackson's room. Jackson used this as his headquarters early in the war when he was in charge of training recruits. They serve a very nice breakfast, had lots of good recommendations for local restaurants and the best way to visit Antietam. Thy even had a beer for me the afternoon I arrived. Parking is off street and very handy for getting you things into the house. There are of course stairs. The town is right down the street and well worth the visit. The Battlefields require a car as they are spread over considerable distances.

Room Tip: Ask for the General's room. It was quiet and had nice views. No ghosts!

Our stay in the Jackson Rose room was perfect! Breakfast was incredible; even the jams are homemade! The Jackson Rose B&B included many historical photos, books, and movies. We came back from a hot afternoon walk to the river, and found a pitcher of delicious lemonade available--we really appreciated this. Sitting in the swing on the front porch in the evening, near the gardens, was very romantic. The owners are terrific hosts, and we hiighly recommend the Jackson Rose. Wow!

This was a real treat and added significantly to our Harper's Ferry visit. Deb and Phil seem to have found their niche in life with a harmonious and coordinated skill set focused on guest comfort, gourmet food presentation, decor, classical music and presenting themselves as just all around nice people. Outstanding food, outstanding location, outstanding rooms, outstanding service. I simply can not think of one thing to complain about......and this is unusual.

What a way to finish our weeklong bike trip of the Great Allegheny/C & C Towpath. Pushing our bikes up the final long hill (yes, pushing) we hoped not to be disappointed. We five middle aged women were ready to celebrate our success and the Jackson Rose B & B provided the perfect venue. Our host was more than generous and helpful (such as the offer of wine and help finding more) we lounged before dinner in a games/TV/den room and after dinner in a beautiful living room that took us back to a much earlier time of this majestic home's life.
Breakfast was the very best of our trip - individually prepared to perfection with wonderful home made jams. A real treat in a stunningly beautiful dining room.

We are thrilled that we found this place. Deb is fabulous at making the breakfast a feast of a delicious variety of homemade preserves, muffins, breads, and other surprise plates. The rooms have the "wow" factor. After a day of activities, you feel like you are going home...cleaner tho...LOL

Harpers Ferry is even better with The Jackson Rose.
Deb and Phil....thank you for your selfless hosting.

Wonderful rooms. Comfortable, spotless and charming.
Breakfasts were wonderful and the our hosts were very nice.
To top it off, the place was quite cool even on a 100 degree day.
Highly recommend it!

We arrived early to this destination and while they were not yet ready for us, they took the time to welcome us and make some suggestions for the rest of our day. we took their advice and borrowed the audio for The Antietam Battlefields. We spent Memorial Day remembering those who fought and died.
We returned to the B& B and just relaxed in its' beauty and history. Our room - the Stonewall Jackson room was comfortable and well decorated.
Breakfast was very good and made a good start for each day.
