Hillbrook is a nice locally owned inn just outside of Charles Town, West Virginia about 5 miles from the casino and horsetrack and ten miles from Harpers Ferry town/National Historic Park. This area provides the attractions I just mentioned in addition to great hiking, rafting or other water activities and the motor car raceway. If you are looking for a place away from the hotels in town by the casino, this is a great option. The Inn is nicer than an average bed and breafast for a number of reasons. One, it is larger. Two, they have a real restaurant with full service bar. We ate 5 course dinner one night it was very good as well. Three, the rooms are spread out in multiple buildings. In addition there is also a spa at the inn (we didn't try it as it was booked but it looked nice). The grounds are beautiful at about 17 acres, completely fenced in with deer, geese, birds, etc.. easily seen and neighboring properties have horses. A very nice peaceful setting. The staff took a lot of pride in making a good introduction and being attentive to our service needs. If you are in the Washington, DC , Baltimore or Richmond areas and want to get away for a weekend this is a good option. If you are used to staying at hi-end luxury resorts and eating at the top ranked restaurants touted in your city magazine or paper, this might come in below your expectactions. Keep in mind everything is priced accordingly. One negative aspect of our trip was we stayed in the downstairs suite of the main building. This is an almost 100 year old part of the property. There was a room above us. Just about every move those guests made, we heard. In addition, new guests or those coming in with questions and walking around the main house and the dining room section next to our room are easily heard. You may want to request a room in the other buildings to avoid this. They have a great website that provides an accurate overview of the property and their service offerings.
