We booked a two night stay at Lily Garden as part of a road trip revisiting some of the areas we had enjoyed several years ago. We walked into Lily Garden, took one look around and called to see if we could add a 3rd night. It was really that nice. They have made some obvious accommodations to the Covid 19 situation, eliminating the breakfast, but providing a generous shopoing list of items you can prepare yourself in the well appointed suite. One option was a quiche prepared by Owner/InnKeeper Shawn with your choice of ingredients. A great choice and totally delicious! With the microwave, it was quick work to heat it up, pair with some fruit and bagels and enjoy. Off street parking was another plus! Harpers Ferry itself was very enjoyable. Most shops were open. A few restaurants were not but we found some great dining right in town at the Rabbit Hole (incredible crab cakes) and went back for three meals. The National Park sites were all closed, but you can see a great deal just walking around and the grounds themselves were open. We walked across the river and hiked a bit on the Canal tow path. Lots of old memories! We also enjoyed the many trains passing through town ! Highly recommend a trip to Harpers Ferry and a stay at Lily Garden.

I love this B&B! It was cozy, comfortable, and I felt right at home the minute I walked in. There was so much to do in the vicinity I stayed an extra 2 nights. I love being so close to the Appalachian Trail. Owners were extremely kind and accommodating...one of the best Christmas vacations I ever had!

Tammi and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit. It was a fabulous experience made near-perfect by coming home each evening to the Trundle Suite, and waking up each morning to an amazing in-suite breakfast to fuel the coming day. You can't possibly imagine it until you've lived it. And you must. And living it is. Harpers Ferry is a joy. Don't take this the wrong way, but, well, it's the Kevin Bacon of destinations - you cannot begin to imagine everything that has transpired in and the history that has visited this little hamlet. It is a bona fide slice of America. And the Lily Garden B&B pulls it all together. We were beyond delighted.

Lily Garden, located in historic Harpers Ferry, is a quiet B&B conveniently close to the National Historic Park. We stayed in the Carriage House Suite. The suite was roomy and comfortable. The Carriage House suite was rustic, nicely furnished and clean. Appreciated the kitchen and sitting area after a long day of hiking and touring Harpers Ferry. There was plenty of amenities available for our use. We experienced a couple of hiccups when we first arrived but they were quickly resolved. Thank you, Shawn! It had a quiet backyard area with ample space to walk our dog. We felt comfortable leaving our dog in the suite (crated of course) while we hiked. The only suggestion we have is more attention is needed to detail on the property, especially the backyard, and on the porch located off the Carriage Barn suite. It could have been a little more neater, but, the interior was clean. That being said, overall, Lily Garden is a good place to stay while in Harpers Ferry.

Dear Debra and Dave, thank you for your kind thoughts! We're on the final phase of upgrades to the yard, this being the 5th. Since getting the property in 2016 we've completed 25 phases of repairs, modernization, and upgrades to the cottage, gardens, and property. Everything that we bring in goes to these costs and it leaves little room to keep the gardens perfectly attended to at all times. We'd hire a staff person to do everything for us but we have only two suites and all of our proceeds are going into upgrades and the preservation of the property. The cottage had many upgrades and repairs and the house dates back to the 1810s. And we've traversed a laundry list of things already with more major preservation projects coming. This year you saw the results of major upgrades to the water garden that include blooming lotuses and 10 other varieties of blooming water flowers. We offer many things that most B&Bs don't do -- private apartments, family stays, breakfast made to order and delivered (just to name a few) -- and for the most part our guests love how we do things. We are also a family business and, again, on account of the costs of preservation, along with our own full-time jobs and family matters, we cannot afford the time or cost of perfectly sculpted gardens at all times. Please keep in mind when booking our place that our apartments open to the outdoors (not to a shared interior space) and that we like the rugged and wonderful picturescapes of historic Harpers Ferry. It's an oasis from a busy world and we love how we do things at Lily Garden BnB! All our best, Shawn

My wife and I stayed here one night on a bicycle trip from Pittsburgh to Washington DC. We stumbled upon this little gem surfing through the recesses of the internet and we are so pleased we found it! We shared in the smaller apartment on the ground floor which suits two people, but no more. It is cosy (not tiny) and has the most wonderful patina of life and wonderful local clutter (and I mean clutter in the best possible way). It is at the top of the hill and an easy walk into town. The breakfast was great, the Keurig machine was well stocked and the ambience of this place was just right. We'd recommend it hands down. If you like corporate glossy rentals with hints of Architectural Digest in the design .... ehhh, you should go somewhere else. If you enjoy real, local, grassroots properties and you aren't a giant fusspot this place will make you very happy.
