#8 of 11 B&Bs / Inns in Harpers Ferry
***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.

Our two-night stay at Town's Inn in the heart of Harper's Ferry was wonderful! The Shenandoah bedroom and attached sitting room occupy the entire third floor, with a private bathroom located on the second floor (other rooms have private bathrooms on the same floor). The beds were comfy, and the window air conditioners and fans kept the room cool and well-ventilated during a couple of very warm June days. The home is more than 100 years old; Karen the owner has restored and remodeled, and it is clean and comfortable. If you are looking for a Hilton or Marriott hotel chain feel, this may not be your place but for us, it was well worth the location and accommodation, for walking the town and exploring its shops and outdoor dining at a number of restaurants. If you are biking, you can lock your bike on the enclosed back patio out of street view. Parking is just down the street at the train station, but you can park temporarily in front of the Inn and unload. That was not a huge deal for us, nor were the stairs to our room. We felt very welcome by Karen and her daughter and family, and have no hesitation recommending the Inn.

My friends and I did a wine and brewery tour for my birthday and while booking the tour stumbled upon this inn. It was the best find ever!! We booked the 1820 suite that fits up to 8 people. It was cozy and very comfortable and a great price for the night. The owner Karen was so helpful and kind. They have a great cafe that makes the best pancakes ever. The location is smack in the middle of Harpers Ferry downtown so it was great to be able to walk around and explore. I would definitely recommend this inn for anyone that wants a quaint relaxed place to stay and especially for larger groups. Thanks Karen!!!!!

Great place to get some lunch and get out of the crowds. Good chatting with the attendant. Kinda of hidden up the stairs. Small counter area, fits about 6 - 8 total. Part store, part cafe. Try the pepperoni rolls.

Delightful, charming, quirky. Our stay in this 1840 home checked all those boxes. Room heated by tiny electric fireplaces. Plenty of towels and blankets, REAL coffee mugs (not appear cups) fridge and microwave tucked into the corner so you can pretend it’s 1840! Our room had an en-suite bath. Other rooms have a dedicated bath each, but it is down the hall or down a flight of stairs. All of this is clearly stated on the website when you book. Smack dab in the middle of historic down town. Loved it and will be back!

Room Tip: Choose the Appalachian room because of the charming but non-working fireplace and en-suite bath.

Over Christmas I retreat to Town's Inn bc it offers the charm of yesteryear. Each room is unique in size, character and amenities. You will not find a hot tub, but you will find history & hospitality.
