Just spent a 3-day weekend at the Stonehouse, which was a great place for what we wanted. Because it's in the lower town, we could have one of Chris's wonderful breakfasts and then a peaceful walk around the town or down by the river before the crowds arrived. After walking around the area, which is quite up-and-down, we went back to our room for a nap and/or a book before dinner. Unlike a lot of B&B owners, Chris doesn't fuss much and we never felt the place was off-limits during the middle of the day.
The only drawback was the noise from passing trains, even at night - which is the trade-off for the great location. And it won't stop us from staying at the Stonehouse on our next trip to Harpers Ferry.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
