“Perfect romantic retreat close to DC, lovely house, gracious hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

My boyfriend and I stayed at West Ridge Hollow in July. The house is beautiful, and well-appointed. The decorations are tasteful but very interesting; and everything was extremely clean, comfortable, with a lot of thoughtful touches that made our stay really great. The bed in our room was heavenly... we have a good memory foam mattress at home, but we both thought that there was something just amazing about the bed in our room.

We stayed in the Forest room, which had a private patio with hammocks, as well as a pool table and sitting area. On one of our days there, we went whitewater tubing, strolled around Harper's Ferry for a bit, got back to the B&B, washed up and headed to nearby wineries. We had did wine tastings, had dinner at one of the wineries, and then came back to the house... where we relaxed on the hammocks outside and played pool... just a wonderful combination of an active and relaxing day, and the stay at West Ridge Hollow was a big part of our great experience.

The owners, Peggy and Jay, were wonderful hosts. Peggy customized our breakfasts according to our request, both were really helpful with directions, information about the area and stuff like that, and they were also laid back and made us feel comfortable.

The one downside is that it is quite a hike from the "downtown" Harpers Ferry area-- about half an hour on hilly terrain. But I'm not even sure I consider that a downside, considering that parking in town is plentiful and there are 2 solid restaurants (one fancy, one pub-ish) a very short walk from the place anyway.

We will definitely stay here again when we are back in the area... we loved it!

W. Ridge Hollow is an unusual b& b experience in many ways. The hosts have filled the space with exquisite art objects from Mexico - a different kind of americana. We stayed in a suite that included a porch with hammocks and a sauna. The privacy was refreshing. So was the hospitality and food - farm-fresh eggs with pico de gallo and avocado. We will definitely try to visit again! Muy linda!

Our stay at West Ridge Hollow B&B was a much needed restful escape from the city. Peggy, her husband and Bones the dog all treated us with warm hospitality. If you're looking for a clean, friendly and comfortable escape from the every day race, West Ridge Hollow B&B is perfect. Great location, large space, tasty breakfast and kind and knowledgeable hosts. Thank you for making our stay in Harpers Ferry so memorable!

We would highly recommend West Ridge Hollow--clean, beautiful, quiet and accommodating. This B&B is in a scenic, quiet neighborhood. We got a great dinner recommendation and enjoyed the short walk and the delicious dinner. We stayed in the lower level of the house and had a lovely room with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom and access to a deck, pool table and TV. Very relaxing. The proprietor was very hospitable and packed a fabulous breakfast for us since we had to depart very early. We were riding our bikes and had an ambitious schedule to keep, so she offered to drive us to the bike trail which saved a good bit of time. Loved it and would go back if we find ourselves in Harpers Ferry again!

We stayed there about a month ago. The pictures don't do the place justice! We stayed on the bottom floor so we had an entire level to ourselves. We had a nice sized bedroom, full closet, bathroom (that we did not have to share with anyone) kitchen area, sauna, pool table (which plays great), living room with a flat screen tv and the best part was a walk out porch with hammocks and a comfortable bench. It was so beautiful there. The back of the house is nestled into the woods. It is a very relaxing place to be.

The place is really well maintained and you could not ask for nicer hosts. Jay and Peggy were awesome! I have to tell you too that the breakfast they made was out of this world! Everything was prepared fresh, zero short cuts. I have not had a breakfast like that since I was a kid at my Grammy’s table. They sure do put on a great spread!

My other half has a serious fishing problem. Peggy went out of her way to find the best spots to fish. They are lovely people with a great B&B. I don’t think I can say enough great things about this B&B or Jay and Peggy. You’re missing out if you stay at another place. I can’t wait to go back!

My husband and I stayed at West Ridge Hollow for a getaway weekend. We had the upstairs bedroom which has a private bath. It was clean, beautifully decorated and very peaceful. The B&B location is at the top of the hill in Harper's Ferry so the view is full of trees and there was a wonderful breeze. We took a walk from the B&B through town all the way to the restaurants and historic area. We enjoyed the stroll and stopping into the stores along the way, but note that it is about a 20 minute walk - especially the uphill walk back to the B&B. The breakfast was delicious and the hosts were very friendly. We would come back again!

My husband and I recently stayed at West Ridge Hollow for two nights while we were cycling on the C & O trail and can say it was one of the best B & B experiences we've ever had. Our "room" was really a suite with living room, full bath, porch, hand built sauna and full sized refrigerator. The space was exceptionally clean and well appointed without being prissy. The proprietors, Peggy and Jay, were extremely helpful without being intrusive, suggesting places to visit, things to do and their favorite restaurants. They also provided an area in their garage for us to store our bicycles. Peggy fixed a healthy and delicious breakfast, including her homemade tomatillo salsa. We felt that they went above and beyond to make our stay enjoyable.
The Hollow is tucked away in a quiet cul de sac, looking out into a beautiful woods. Perfect for traveling with family, friends or for a romantic getaway. I would absolutely return and recommend to friends!
