“Good, but could be better”
Reviewed October 11, 2004

This place is nice, but a bit overpriced. The grounds are in excellent shape, and it really is a very relaxing, peaceful setting. But, for $275 a night I expected the rooms to be cleaner and the rooms to be a bit more comfortable. Dinner was excellent, and well worth the price.

I appreciate your review of the Hillbrook Inn. We are sorry to hear that your visit was not as good as expected. I am the new owner and took ownership on October 18, 2004...just days after your visit! We have spent the last five years making several changes and updates from your last visit to bring the Inn up to a new standard. We hope that in the future you will consider visiting Hillbrook again!

Definitely a 5 Star B & B.
My husband and I stay at B & B's whenever possible
and Hillbrook Inn is one of our favorites. We have stayed here several times and have loved it every time we're stayed. It is located just outside of Charles Town WV near the quaint little village of Summit Point. Charles Town is a great location for touring Northern Va, the Shenadoah Valley, Harpers Ferry and Sharpsburg. Charles Town has a thoroughbred horse racing as well as a casino.
Hillbrook Inn's country setting is absolutely beautiful. There is a stream running through the yard feed by a spring that begins at the house. The lawn is lush and has many places where one can sit and read or just enjoy nature. There is a family of resident ducks, as well as visiting geese and other wildlife.
The European Inn ambiance is exquisite. The owner has furnished the inn with art she has collected from her many travels around the world and has tastefully decorated each room. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are very comfortable which is a must as far as I'm concerned. Some rooms offer whirlpools which is also nice.
The staff is efficient and very friendly which is another must. The chef makes absolutely wonderful breakfasts using fresh herbs and if you're lucky, the owner will treat you with one of her special dishes.
The Inn offers a 7 course evening meal including wine. I have not tried the evening meal, but have talked with fellow travelers who say it is an experience that is not to be missed. I plan to make the evening meal a priority on my next visit. The Inn is a little pricey, but definitely worth the money. Needless to say we love staying at the Hillbrook Inn and plan to return again and again.

Thank you for all your kind words! The previous owner was a outstanding Innkeeper that loved Hillbrook. We both have a passion for the property and although we have done updates and enhanced the Inn, it still holds a special charm that always existed. Most of the furnishings are the same and we still have the same phenomenal staff...which is truly a blessing!
