“A comfortable home for a weekend away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2014

Charming, historic mansion with comfortable rooms and common areas located conveniently near old town Harpers Ferry.

Deb and Phil were friendly, hospitable, and made many efforts to make us feel warm and welcome, from the open use of their movie collection to the offerings of cider and cookies in the afternoon. The breakfasts were plentiful and deliciously homemade, better than we have had in many restaurants. Deb and Phil's big dog Roy was also happy to have us.

The whole experience was lovely and we absolutely recommend the Jackson Rose for anyone stopping through town.

I may have found the perfect option for stress-free travel to DC. I booked my first stay based on other reviews and was happy to find everything precisely as perfect as promised. The train station is less than five minutes away, and the 6:50 train gets you to DC in time for 9:00 meetings--without navigating beltway traffic. I've stayed upstairs and it's quiet and comfortable. I'm sure I'll be back.

We stayed one night at the Jackson Rose and really enjoyed the history of the building and the incredible hospitality of Deb and Phil. They (and their great dog, Roy) were friendly, welcoming, and made us feel welcome. We're really glad that we decided on the Jackson Rose and will stay there again if we return to Harpers Ferry.

We were picked up at the train station by Phil who gave us a brief over view of Harper's Ferry on the drive to The Jackson Rose. Deb showed us to our room and soon returned with wine and nuts for us to enjoy while we settled in. Breakfast both mornings was fantastic and we also took delight in the sherry and ginger snap cookies still warm from the oven which appeared on the dining table late Saturday afternoon.

My wife and I recently visited Harpers Ferry and chose to stay at the Jackson Rose B&B due to its historical significance. Being a former history teacher, I requested from Deb (her and her husband Phil are outstanding hosts!) the Jackson Rose Room which is where "Stonewall" Jackson stayed during the spring of '61. It was already reserved but we were still glad to be able to stay at the house. To our surprise, upon arrival, Deb lead us to the Jackson Rose Room and shared that "another couple canceled their plans and I knew you wanted to stay here." So we got to stay there after all.

The B&B is very well done and a beautiful place inside and out. The room was fantastic in comfort and decor. Our two night stay was superb as we shared the place with a nice couple from Philadelphia who stayed on the same floor. We had a shared TV room on the same floor and a shared living room with fireplace downstairs that Deb graciously started a fire in as we perused some books about the Civil War. Each room has its own small bath.

Though our stay was in December, the property was still gorgeous. We hope to go back sometime in the summer or Fall to see everything in full bloom. Again, it was still an amazing stay. Deb and Phill served breakfast each morning as we, and our visiting neighbors, had fruit, handmade muffins, French toast and juice on morning one and fruit, handmade muffins, sausage and omelets on morning two. They did a fantastic job as both breakfasts were delicious.

The home is less than 1/2 mile from historic Lower Harpers Ferry and within a 30 minute drive to Antietam Battlefield and historic Shepherdstown. The Harpers Ferry Battlefield is within a couple minutes drive.

It was like stepping back in time and made our weekend in Harpers Ferry that much more meaningful. We read many of the comments left behind in the memory book in the room and NOT ONE person made a single negative comment about the Jackson Rose.

It was worth every penny! We will stay there any time we return to visit Harpers Ferry.

Thanks to Deb and Phil for a great getaway!

We really enjoyed the friendly welcome and delicious breakfast. The history of the Jackson Rose was clearly represented. Our room was nicely decorated in the historic period. Everything went well during our stay. Deb and Phil are excellent hosts. We hope to return to a truly wonderful B & B experience.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Jackson room facing the rose garden.

Very nice, very historic B&B just outside of Harpers Ferry, WV. It's a short drive or a medium walk down hill to the town. Hosts were very pleasant, engaged in making the stay enjoyable and then staying out of the way. Breakfasts were excellent and there were some very good cookies waiting when we got back in the evening.We were there out of season, but it was still a very enjoyable time. But be forewarned: the Jackson Rose is the highlight of the trip. There isn't much in Harpers Ferry or the surrounding area unless you like the local history and a tour of Antietam battle field. If you are a hiker or biker you will be well rewarded. There is the casino in nearby Charles Town, but it is a sad, sad place. Even nearer Shepherdstown is more enjoyable even though it is smaller, probably because it is a college town. A little longer car ride will take you to Frederick MD, and there are some vineyards over the border in Virginia. If you are going to the area, stay at the Jackson Rose.

Room Tip: Any of the rooms are fine, but if private TV is important to you, get the Garret room. We did not ha...
