Our stay in Sharpsburg, MD was perfect. We are so happy that we chose the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. We fell in love with the Inn, our room and Amy & Chris Vincent. Our room was immaculate, the gardens are beautiful and serene. Each morning breakfast was served and the culinary delights were out of this world. Amy sure can cook. Chris & Amy always made sure we were happy and taken care of. Doug & I enjoyed their friendly conversations. We were sad that we had to check out. We will definitly go back in 2021. It is a dog friendly Inn. Thank you Amy & Chris for making our stay at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn absolutly perfect.

The room was great! It had a balcony to sit and enjoy the view of a well manicured back garden. It was very clean and we felt very safe from the current pandemic around us. You can't beat the location with amenities in walking distance or very short drive. The food was fantastic. Bring your appetite to breakfast cause it is a hard one with delicious home made scones or bread. Amy and Chris are very knowledgeable on the lovsl area, nearby restaurants, and the nearby Antietam Battle Field. Will definitely go there again.

This should be a MUST STAY if you are in the area. In addition to the superb location, lovely grounds, and large, spotlessly clean rooms, you get to enjoy a gourmet breakfast that is never the same thing twice! Chris and Amy obviously take a great deal of pride in a job well done and do it in a friendly and engaging atmosphere.

We have stayed at the Rohrbach Inn before and this was the BEST yet. The lovely gardens provide wonderful outdoor space for relaxation, and breakfast if the weather is really nice. The rooms are amazingly comfortable with all the amenities you might need. They are quite sensitive to the current COVID situation and the Inn and rooms were MORE immaculate than ever before. They take all the necessary precautions to ensure you have a wonderful and healthy stay. You can rest assured that every surface will be clean and sanitized. Come to Antietam, and enjoy Chris and Amy's hospitality at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn.
