“I think we are spoiled now!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

My husband and I checked in on Friday 7/18/2014. We had never been to a Bed and Breakfast so we were a little nervous of what to expect. We were MORE than pleasantly surprised!!

We were greeted by Marie and were given a short history lesson of the house. We also got our first taste of Donn's wonderful cooking, fresh ginger snap cookies! We were then taken to our room, The Shenandoah Suite. It was BEAUTIFUL, just as clean as in the pictures! I really enjoyed the separate porch that my husband could watch tv in while I could shut the door and relax.

Listen to the dining suggestions and check out the menus in the folder provided in your room. The Mediterranean Grill was excellent, and we would have never picked this type of restaurant to visit if it had not been for Marie's suggestion.

Breakfast was served in the formal dining room and it was EXCELLENT! The first morning we had Caramel Apple french toast and eggs and the second morning we had a Spinach and sausage polenta. Donn really outdoes himself and you can tell he enjoys what he does.

We had such a wonderful experience at The Carriage Inn that I am not sure if another B&B could compare! Donn & Marie are such wonderful hosts and know how to make you feel at home. They have truly found their calling!

The only thing that could have made our stay better was if Donn was able to cook dinner as well!

Room Tip: The Shenandoah Suite has a separate enclosed porch with a door that you are able to close. Great for...

Very comfortable inn with lots of civil war history both at the inn and in the surrounding environment.
Banana bread was a welcome treat on checking in. The hosts were very helpful about getting us oriented about places to visit and dine. The copper beech suite was immaculate and we particularly enjoyed sitting in the enclosed porch. The jacuzzi was wonderful! Thank you Donn and Marie.
Just a little note to future guests that you may occasionally hear a train in the background during the night.

What a gem...! My fiancé and I didn't know what to expect when we arrived and boy were we pleasantly surprised! From the warm coffee cake (right out of the oven!) upon arrival to the impeccable room, lovely hosts, this was truly a trip we will never forget...! Thank you Donn and Marie...we will be back! (Christmas time maybe?) :)

I had previously read the reviews of the Carriage Inn and now I know why the customers are raving about it. We just got back from a 2 night stay, and just going to add to the accolades. Hosts Marie and Donn are wonderful, friendly, and helpful without being intrusive, they truly make you feel at home from the moment you arrive. The Inn is within walking distance to restaurants along a quaint Main Street, or even fast food if that is what you are looking for. But you won't want to miss the breakfast, its fresh hot and waiting for you when you pick your time! The Inn has a wonderful history, which the hosts are well versed in, and great scenery and attractions nearby. We particularly liked Harpers Ferry, which is only 6 miles away. And the Skyline Drive is about an hours drive to enter this wonderful scenic drive and National Park. Marie was gracious enough to show us the entire Inn, and its all lovely and the rooms are all large and spacious. We stayed in the Garden Room. All rooms have private baths. You can't go wrong with this Inn. I am craving Donn's scones, muffins and cookies! There are lovely touches in their hospitality and charm throughout.

We stayed at the Carriage Inn this past weekend and it was the most wonderful B&B we have ever stayed in. Not only is the location perfect, but Don and Maria are the most welcoming hosts. We will most certainly be back!

Had a wonderful stay at this historic B&B! Donn and Maria were the perfect hosts, taking as much time as we wanted to explain the history of the house (Headquarters for General Sheridan and a meeting place for General Grant and Sheridan) and surrounding area. Our room was very comfortable, neat and well appointed... and our breakfast was superb! A great get-away!

Everything that I have read in the other reviews is true of this Bed and Breakfast. The hosts are very welcoming, but never intrusive. My husband was leery of staying in a B&B, but he loved it. What makes this one so special is that is a house that has seen a lot of civil war history, which gives it character. The rooms are beautifully appointed. Even though we only stayed 2 nights, I felt more refreshed from our time there then when we take longer trips and stay in motels. I would recommend this establishment to anyone.
