It was because we saw the Living Social (half price) voucher of $165 for this B&B that we decided to visit Harpers Ferry for 3 days. What a delight! From even before we arrived, we felt welcome and comfortable. Debbi even called me to say we could get in the room earlier than planned so we were able to get settled around noon and then head off for an afternoon visiting the Historical Site. It worked out so much better because she is very knowledgeable and gave us advice on what to do and in what order to do it. (My review of Harpers Ferry itself explains our three days' of great sightseeing.) The site closes down at 5 pm and fine dining doesn't exist in Harpers Ferry (though the Anchor Restaurant about 7 blocks form the Inn is fine), so it's nice to have a pied a terre to rest before going out for dinner.
This is a lovely old house which has been turned into 4 suite rooms, 3 upstairs and 1 down, each with a sitting room. Debbi had picked the Fenwick Room for us by phone based on our level of comfort (a claw foot bathtub and shower combo) plus a sitting room facing the back of the inn. EAch room is very comfortable, tastefully decorated with a King size bed. In my opinion, the Fenwick is the nicest because it is the largest and quietest (facing the back). The Remington and Wager rooms face the front and the street. The McKenzie room on the first floor has a private separate entrance on the back but don't book it if you like to sleep in--the inside door opens on the dining room and folks can be noisy at breakfast.
Our package included a wine and cheese platter which we thoroughly enjoyed on our separate porch sitting room for the two nights we were there. There is a space heater so it's cozy. I was suffering from broken ribs but the bed was so comfy, I enjoyed my first full night's sleep in two weeks. We were able to come and go as we pleased with a key to the side door and parking in back.
Breakfasts were gourmet--so much for that diet I was supposed to be on. Coffee was ready in the parlor by 7:30 and breakfast at 8:30. Apple crisp to start, followed by French toast and bacon. The second day it was broiled grapefruit with maple syrup and almonds, followed by cheese casserole. Yummy.
We will definitely stay here again and I have suggested this as an anniversary trip for my daughter. There will not be another Living Social coupon until year' end, but the package at $330 (including wine and cheese) or just the room for two nights at $250 is a great value.
