#7 of 10 B&Bs / Inns in Harpers Ferry
Travelers' Choice
***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.

We stayed here while riding the GAP/C&O, and it was a fun place to stay. The owner was away and in her stead Glinda and Casandra were extremely welcoming and friendly and ready to get us set up with whatever we needed. We stayed in the Mountain room and it was cozy - all that we needed for the night. The private bathroom was not en-suite (our fault for making that assumption) but the in provided robes to help with that. I rated it 4 rather than 5 only because the bathrooms aren’t all en-suite. But it’s a 200 year old house, so that comes with the territory. Otherwise, it’s a unique inn that is cozy and in a fabulous location (beers and dinner at the Rabbit Hole, literally across the street), and the people who run it could not be nicer or more helpful. I’m so glad we stayed and will do so again.

Cycling the C&O spent a night here and enjoyed our stay. Friendship suite was right off the front porch, great for us due to convenience but perhaps not for those seeking more privacy. Room was pleasant with comfortable main space, bath was a little tight but to be expected for an old building like this. Up the stairs in front of building will take you to the lobby and a shop with some food items and snacks which came in really handy for us to stock up before setting out on the bike trail. Bike storage area behind the hotel. Would recommend to anyone looking to ride the C&O.

Considering the cost, I feel the average rating is appropriate. The town is a busy one and this hotel meets the need of most - it was clean and close to the sites. For me, it was also one of two inns closest to the bottom of the hill. I did pay extra for an en suite shower and toilet - the shower itself was dark as there was no internal light and dark curtains (note to hotel: consider a clear curtain to solve that issue). My room was redone within last 5 years or so and featured two comfortable looking side chairs that expertly held my bags. The rest seemed pieced together - while it might fit the period look, it was more functionally than stylish. There are no outlets near the bed. There’s also a window air conditioner, which worked well. However the single curtain panel made it difficult to shade out light - did so after careful placement but it wasn’t wide enough to be totally effective. The photo shows the view from that window. The staff was friendly and offered to hold my bags in my room which was being cleaned in preparation for my stay.

Our family of four, with two boys 15 and 11, stayed at The Town's Inn for two nights during our trip to Harper's Ferry. The inn was built in 1840 and was only steps from the NPS Harper's Ferry museums and sights. We loved having the chance to wake up early before the NPS shuttles began to run and walk throughout the park without having to battle crowds. To see Harper's Ferry in the quiet of the morning was truly wonderful. Upon our arrival, parking was a little daunting but the innkeeper was more than happy to help us navigate and our stay was certainly worth the initial challenges. Our room, The Shenandoah, was comfortably appointed and was attached to a common sitting area but we had that space all to ourselves during our visit. I would 100% recommend this inn to my friends but I would caution them that this charming inn would be challenging for people with mobility issues or who have difficulty with stairs. Our room was on the 3rd floor and the staircases are authentic to the period so steep and narrow. Our private bath was on the second floor so we had to go up and down the stairs to use the restroom. Having the restroom detached from our room was a new experience but certainly did not hinder our enjoyment of the stay. We made some great memories at The Town's Inn and in Harper's Ferry and would encourage anyone who values authenticity over luxury to plan a visit. This charming, cozy, and welcoming inn is definitely worth the trip back in time.
