Can't say enough about our experience. You are our hero for going out of your way for us.... Excellent service and great place to lay your head. Tire blow out and no place open, thanks to Laurel who came to our rescue! !! Jean and Anne

Room Tip: I never stayed at a hostel before, all in all it was a great experience. will stay here again.

Laruel was again wonderful to work with. She provided our family with a shuttle to our starting point for our backpacking trip on the Appalachian Trail. Her hospitality and attention translate to her business. We highly recommend her to anyone. You will not be dissapointed in her hostel or her shuttle services.

Laurel picked up three weary, muddy, foul-smelling cyclists from the C&O canal towpath (me & 2 friends) and chauffeured us to the hostel. She was a lifesaver, and that was just the beginning. Comfortable, clean, and a great breakfast. We slept like babies, and woke ready for another 50+ mile day on the path. The Tea Horse is great, and Laurel is very special.

Room Tip: We had the 3-bed downstairs room and it was quiet, no stairs to climb, easy access to the street, ha...

My girlfriend and I stayed here to end our trip on the C & O towpath and ended up using Laurel's Shuttle Service back to our car. Not only was she kind and helpful, but her accommodations were excellent. Very clean and comfortable..she sets the standard. Added bonus, of course, waffles with orange juice and fruit for breakfast hit the spot in the morning. Highly recommend the Teahorse Hostel.

My family was hiking the Maryland section of the Appalachian Trail over spring break. We arrived at Laurel's lovely hostel after driving in from Cincinnati. This was my children's first experience staying in one. After a great nights sleep in a clean and comfortable guest room we woke up to a great breakfast of waffles, fruit, juice and coffee. Laurel then drove us in our car to Pen Mar park where we began our hike back to Harpers Ferry. We then were able to hike from Pen Mar to the Tea Horse Hostel where Laurel had our care waiting for us.

We really had a fantastic time at this hostel and it was a great start to our trip.

Laurel stayed up late for my late arrival. Very clean, welcoming place to stay for a hiker. Breakfast is included in price and was very good. Will stay there next year on my thru hike! Harpers Ferry a cool place to visit.

For those of you who have not hosteled before this wuold be a great introduction-but be warned that this will also be one of the best. Laurel has it down. A veteran traveler herself she has taken her learned experiences form her trips and brought back the best into this warm, friendly, squeaky clean hostel. Hot showers (x2) comfortable beds, warm rooms, locked bike storage and did I mention it is all REALLY clean? When we were there Laurel offered to drive us out to a dinner stop as we had just finished a leg of the C&O and were pretty beat. We didn't take her up on this as there is a quality restaurant right next door and a decent Italian place within walking. But the offer was genuine and appreciated. The waffle and fruit breakfast, hot coffee and ice cream in the fridge were all well done. Laurel truly loves this business and enjoys talking with the quests and making everyone welcome. Great stay!

Room Tip: there are two rooms, one larger and with more beds than the other, but both are quiet and peaceful.
