“Great B & B!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

This was my first time staying at a B & B and I loved it. We stayed in the Nest room, which was a standard room with a private bath. The location is good. It's not right in the middle of the main historic area, but close enough for an easy walk or bike ride down to the sites. There are 2 great restaurants only about 3 blocks away which are less crowded than in the main part of town.

A nice touch was the back deck which we were welcome to sit on and enjoy our wine while watching the many birds feast on the bird feeders.

Room Tip: While I did not see the other room, I understand the Forest room is quite extensive. If you are loo...

All I can do is echo what most of the other reviewers have said, and tell you that the West Ridge Hollow B&B is excellent! Ask for the forest "room," and you will actually get a whole private suite which includes a spacious living room, outside deck, pool table, and even a sauna. All this is for the same price you would probably pay for just a bedroom at another B&B. The West Ridge Hollow is located in a quiet neighborhood, but not far from the Harpers Ferry historic district. Hostess Peggy was full of tourist advice. She cooked delicious breakfasts. The first morning it was scrambled eggs with fresh salsa, and the second morning we had blueberry pancakes. We will definitely return the next time we stay in Harpers Ferry, WV.

My husband and I stayed at the West Ridge Hollow B&B for three nights for a long weekend getaway. The location was perfect! It felt like you were tucked away, but so close to everything downtown. Our hosts, Peggy and Jay, are fantastic, so welcoming and hospitable. We almost felt like we were staying with family. They were so kind in giving us ideas of things to do downtown, from hiking trails, to the best tours and restaurants.

Not only were our hosts absolutely amazing, so were our accommodations and breakfasts. The room was cozy, extremely clean, and beautifully decorated. The view outside our window was breathtaking! There was also a porch to sit and relax. If you love the outdoors, there are hiking trails right outside their back door.

This B&B is the best. Period. We definitely can't wait to come back again this year!

I stayed two nights -- the first was spent in the room upstairs since the Forest Room wasn't available that night. That room is a standard guest room with a private bath. But the second night, we moved down to the Forest Room. I am still amazed at this room, which encompasses the entire downtstairs, with a bedroom, kitchen, living room, not to mention a sauna, pool table, and a private deck that leads down to hiking trails. It it incredibly spacious and fun, making it the prefect place to relax and unwind. Peggy also owns an adorable dog who came to greet us when we arrived. I would definitely recommend the Forest Room to anyone who is looking for lodging there.

The pictures don't do this place justice. We stayed in the Forest Room, which is the lower level of their house, completely private and very nice. We were pleasantly surprised at how spacious, comfortable, and tastefully decorated the space was. The bedroom has a super comfortable tempurpedic mattress and really nice linens. There's a second room that has a pool table, a couch and a flat screen TV on the wall. It overlooks a forested area and has a deck off the back to hang out on. Peggy and Jay were fun and gracious hosts. We stayed there 2 nights and each morning we were served a really nice breakfast (eggs and bacon with fruit one morning, pancakes, yogurt and fruit the other morning) complete with coffee, juice and a copy of the Washington Post. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing retreat in Harpers Ferry.

Very friendly people, excellent breakfast. However, it is a room in their house. It looks no different than any other house on the street. I would equate it more to staying at a friends house than a bed and breakfast. We felt very awkward coming and going, and spent most of the time there in our room. There was nothing wrong, just be prepared for the experience.

My favorite aspect of this place is that you don't just get a room--you get an entire floor complete with a deck where you can relax on a hammock and there is a pool table. The breakfasts are excellent, especially the pancakes with fruit. Since the B&B is at the end of the road next to the woods, it's quiet and private. It's also just a couple of blocks away from two very good restaurants, the Canal House and the Anvil. At any given time, there are only two sets of guests, making it a more intimate atmosphere.

Room Tip: I would strongly recommend the Forest Suite downstairs.
