I stayed for two nights in a private bedroom with a separate private bathroom. The views are great from everywhere in this inn. It's a great meeting place for those hiking on the Appalachian Trail. The proprietress is quite knowledgeable and helpful about things to do in Harpers Ferry. I enjoyed my breakfasts in the cafe. While preparing to go... More

This hotel is brilliant after being done up by Gordon Ramsey. Chic and welcoming, friendly staff, nice food. The location is lovely too. The owner is a sweetheart. It has been totally transformed and looks fantastic. Would recommend it to anyone.

We stayed here with our three children. We had a nice room with bathroom and beds for everyone. The dinner next door was outstanding. The owner was very friendly and the cafe breakfast was tasty. We would love to come back. The location is very central. Great place to visit.

Located in downtown of beautiful Harpers Ferry, Towns Inn will make your stay a quite adventure. It's this 18th century style building with cozy rooms and an extremely hospitable staff. We stayed there for two nights and didn't feel like we were in a hotel due to a very homey environment. Needless to mention, that we absolutely fell in love... More

When I reserved owner didn’t tell me we would have to carry bikes w/gear up stairs to 295’ high bridge to cross Potomac River from C&O Towpath. We are 70 years old. John from café at the inn graciously carried our bikes w/gear up and down for us.

My wife and I enjoyed everything about our mini-moon at The Town's Inn and will certainly return. The location, service, food and ambiance were exactly what we were looking for. We have been raving about our stay and recommend it highly. We stayed in the Appalachian Room in the Mountain House for two nights. The room was clean and in... More

Stayed here while riding the C&O. Stayed in the Friendship room. Has a hidden gem on the 2nd floor - cross between a country store and convenience store with food and drinks for purchase and a breakfast/lunch/snacks made to order menu. Staff was very friendly. We locked our bikes to the front fence right outside our room with no issues.... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
***Rates starting at $120*** This family-friendly historic Inn (circa 1840) is located in the center of the Harpers Ferry living history village situated at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, just steps from the C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail, as well as the storybook train station served by Amtrak and MARC trains. Open from 6 a.M. - 10 P.M. Every day of the year, the restaurant on the first level of the Inn offers indoor and patio dining featuring popular cuisine, including homemade specialties and healthy options. Also on the first floor is a Sundry / Snack / Supply Shoppe which has been described as a "high-end convenience store, a mini-health food store, and an old-fashioned country store with local products." The second floor consists of two bedrooms with beautiful slate-tile private bathrooms. A parlor containing a treasure of books, toys, and games is situated on the third floor, along with another bedroom. Free WiFi is available. Step outside and enjoy river views, river sports, hiking, bicycling, museums, shopping, and more in this quaint town that is adjacent to the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and surrounded by other national parks, farms, and Civil War battlegrounds. Although located only 60 miles from DC, the Inn is "a world away" from life in modern urban and suburban cities. We invite you to travel "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house" for relaxation, recreation, and retreat. ... more   less
