“Next time, we'll stay longer!!!”
Reviewed June 20, 2011

We stayed one night in the Mary Rutherford Room at the end of a weeklong Civil War battlefields trip. We were hoping just to wind down and relax before a long drive home. We could not have made a better choice! The Inn is located in the historic district, and it's a just a short, pleasant walk to restaurants and shops in the center of town. Donn and Marie are wonderful hosts. Donn will tell you the fascinating history of the house (which is on the Civil War Trail) and Marie will be sure that everything is just perfect for your stay. they serve a delicious (and filling) breakfast in a lovely formal dining room, and have coffee, tea and cold drinks available at all times. The rooms are elegantly decorated and totally comfortable...combining historical ambience with modern amenities like wi-fi. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

We arrived at the Carriage Inn after a long chilly day at the Summit Point raceway. The inn is tastefully decorated, and the grounds are well kept. We were cordially greeted by Donn, who gave us the history of the house, a great recommendation for dinner (Dish in Charles Town), then allowed us to relax and regroup. We stayed in the Mary Rutherford room, and really enjoyed the comfortable bed and gas fireplace. Breakfast was savory and satisfying, and Marie was nice enough to wrap up our muffins (one of several tasty parts of our meal) for a mid-morning snack, since we needed to be back at the track. We felt welcomed and well-treated, and will return when we get a chance, hopefully for a more leisurely visit.

Room Tip: Toward the back of the house, less street noise.

Donn and Marie made our stay at the Carriage Inn the best ever. The food was terrific. They were so helpful with restaurant selections and directions on great places to go. We stayed four nights in the Shenandoah Suite. By the time we left it felt as if we were leaving a favorite cousin's house. Donn and Marie know the history of this bed and breakfast which they share. It makes your stay more interesting. Charles Town is a town that has something for everyone. A quaint main street with an historical walking tour, as well as, a casino and horse racing. We enjoyed the Civil War Battlefield, Harpers Ferry, Oatlands Plantation and visiting local wineries. This was a relaxing and enjoyable trip.

Donn and Marie do a great job of making their guests feel at home.. The history of the home is rich, the furnishings beautiful, the rooms spacious for a B&B, and the breakfast was excellent.

We can't even imagine a better place to stay than there. First Donn and Marie made us feel like family from the first moment, and that carried though the whole stay. Second, the house has a history that puts you right into the Civil War and Donn and Marie know the facts. Thirdly, each breakfast was better than the last. We had a wonderful time and were made to feel like it was our home too, which was so nice.

Built some twenty years before the Civil War began, this historic home makes for a great stay. If your in Charles Town for history or the casino you will not be disappointed to stay at the Carriage Inn. Donn and Marie are wonderful people and make you feel at home right away. I was on a genealogy mission so Donn got his computer out and helped me locate some cemeteries. Would have had a hard time without his help. We have stayed in over thirty B&B's and we rate the breakfast in the top five. Everything was over the top delicious! Donn and Marie's hospitality is second to none. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: All the rooms are large and cozy.

My wife and I just got back from a quick trip to Charles Town to have dinner with a number of friends at the Race Track. We decided to stay overnight and selected the Carriage Inn based on reviews posted here. "Outstanding" is an understatement. Donn and Marie are consumate hosts who go out of there way to ensure you enjoy your stay. I can't say enough about both of them. Gracious is a perfect description. The rooms are reasonable priced, and the Inn is just a short two minute drive to Charles Town Races. We stayed in the Sunrise Suite. The room was fairly spacious and the bed very confortable. We have definitely found our place to stay for future visits to Charles Town.
