I was super excited about spending two night here but overall it missed some marks. We stayed in the South room at the Hawthrone House. The house itself is very nice. The entrance is very inviting. Our room was on the first floor. That was the BIGGEST mistake of them all. Our first night we had the building to ourselves that was nice. The room has a nice fireplace although the flame was turned down as low as possible and could hardly be seen. It must vent outside because it didn't generate heat. The first night our room was boiling hot. The hostess said we could text and she would adjust the heat with her phone but at 1 am that would be rude. We ended up sleeping with the balcony door open so as not to roast. The vents were in the bathroom it seemed so we closed that bathroom off to decrease the heat too. The bed as not terribly comfortable - it sunk in the middle meaning it has seen better days and either needs flipping or replaced. The bathroom was dated but nice enough. Water pressure and temperate were perfect. That first night we went to the dining room for dinner. I have done many dinners where you pay a flat fee and basically get what you get because it's supposed to be amazing. We were sat in a room with a fireplace. The fireplace was not lit and it was freezing in that room. Who wants to eat dinner in 3 layers of clothing. Our waitress was amazing and eventually after the second course she attempted to light a fire that burned out before dessert but at least she tried. It would be nice if there were 2 selections fo each of the courses. The salad was beets which are not the most loved food in the world. Our second course was pork belly on sweet potato grits. The grits were hands down one the best things I have eaten in a long time and the best part of the meal. The scallops were not seared that well and overall just average. Our dessert was not sweet and the granola on top was a bit too earthy for me. Our last night the Hawthorne house filled up. You can hear every movement above you. The floors are so loud and the people above us didn't go to sleep. We could hear their conversations and literally everything.... I was just plain horrible. Our room was boiling hot again too. At 3 am they were still stomping around up there. Finally at 6 am we couldn't take it anymore after no sleep and got up and came home. It was a waste of a night. I don't suggest staying in a room where there are people above you. Overall the staff were nice and the room was average. The space is nice and I respect the historic nature of the building. Was dinner worth $200 not at all. The quantity and quality were at best a $120 meal. We got the room at a fair price. Not sure I'm thrilled with the $25 cleaning fee. Shouldn't that already be factored into the price of the room?? It's not a room for rent on Craigs list.

Came here on vacation. This is a very out of the way B&B but well worth it! It feels like a tucked away refuge from the overall city - great relaxing getaway! The grounds are very beautiful, and there's a resident goose lurking around the place. Excellent food and service - everyone here was at the top of their game and went the extra mile to be friendly! Perfect place to relax either outside or in the room! Will definitely be back here again!

A wonderful place to stay if you are in the Charles Town/ Harpers Ferry area! The main inn/restaurant itself is on a beautiful property, but we stayed at a farmhouse location which was also really nice. Our room (Sunset Suite) was very spacious, comfortable, and very clean. The breakfast every morning is also very good. We made dinner reservations one night which I also recommend.

Just about mediocre everything. And that's giving them a pass due to COVID. Room: We stayed in one of the cottages. Nice enough, but very "no frills" considering the price we paid. Only two towels in the bathroom, a lightbulb above sink burnt out, no additional blanket for the bed, shower head spattered out water and the device was not sturdy, no tea in the room though plenty of instant coffee. It would have been nice to have better soap, seemed more Quality Inn than "inn" quality. It's the details that Hillbrook Inn misses. Dinner: The food was quite good. Very good! But not worth the $300 and $50 tip for two people and one wine pairing. We called ahead and advised one of us is gluten-free. The only accommodation was to remove the gnocchi. No alternative. Wow. Service was OK but slow. Breakfast: What a joke. Who serves oatmeal AND grits? Way too heavy. Juice was from concentrate. No 1% or 2% milk for coffee? Really? Fruit was limited. Again, no gluten-free accommodation even though they knew it. At the end of both breakfasts the server presented us with a bill. We were confused. So was the couple at the table next to us. Breakfast, we were told, was included. She didn't return to the table so we went to find the server. She said some people like to pay. I said why, since it's included. She didn't have an answer. We were presented a bill again for breakfast the next morning. It just seems unnecessary, and confusing. Service: Overall, service is OK. Don't expect anyone to answer the phone if you need something. I understand a stripped staff is present because of COVID. But because of lack of attention to the guest, the entire experience feels empty. For what it's worth, when I finally did get ahold of the front desk to place our breakfast delivery-to-door order for the next morning, when the food arrived it was not at all what we requested. Though delicious, it wasn't what we asked for. When we received the bill for our stay, the inn charged us $10 for breakfast delivery to our room. Never were we told there would be a charge. I emailed staying so and they were quick to remove it. But again, why even charge? Why not make that charge clear? Spa/Massage: I've had about 200+ massages in my lifetime. In the States, Asia, Mexico, Argentina, etc. Our couples massage was just OK. I wasn't asked the level of intensity I preferred nor any bod part I'd like additional focus on. When I asked if she could go deeper into my shoulder, she said that would constitute "deep tissue massage" and would cost extra. Sheesh, talk about spoiling the moment. Afterwards we were asked how much tip we'd like to leave. The massage therapists asked, which was slightly uncomfortable. I said $15 per, yet on the bill the next morning it was converted into 15%. Not the end of the world, but again, Hillbrook Inn missed the mark on caring for the details. The Grounds: Very lovely, clean, expansive. Well cared for! In the end, we had an OK time. But for the $235/night room charge, a $300 dinner, and lack of attention to detail, we'll be staying elsewhere for our next getaway.

This inn has wonderful grounds and is very quaint, but I thought it was way overpriced at $380/night. The room we stayed in was reminiscent of a tiny European hotel room - small and an attic room. Bathroom was a converted closet. Bed creaky, a bit shabby, fridge loud enough that we unplugged it during the night (a first we've had to do that in years of traveling!). Breakfast in the AM was not bad but not great. I wouldn't have been put off and we did enjoy our stay but does WV demand higher prices than FL beachside resorts?
