If you are looking for a classic Inn to spend the night and have some great home cooking, this is the place for you. Karan was very welcoming and did everything she could to make us feel completely at home. The location of the Inn is just far enough up the hill for a great view of the historic town and rivers, but not too far up the hill that you feel removed from the historic section of town. The staff are all very friendly. We felt it was a great value for the money. This is not a hotel chain so do not expect that type of experience. This is an authentic Inn, with a real Inn keeper who is dedicated to her patrons. It's not perfect, but that's what makes it great.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ***Rates starting at $120*** This family-friendly historic Inn (circa 1840) is located in the center of the Harpers Ferry living history village situated at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, just steps from the C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail, as well as the storybook train station served by Amtrak and MARC trains. Open from 6 a.M. - 10 P.M. Every day of the year, the restaurant on the first level of the Inn offers indoor and patio dining featuring popular cuisine, including homemade specialties and healthy options. Also on the first floor is a Sundry / Snack / Supply Shoppe which has been described as a "high-end convenience store, a mini-health food store, and an old-fashioned country store with local products." The second floor consists of two bedrooms with beautiful slate-tile private bathrooms. A parlor containing a treasure of books, toys, and games is situated on the third floor, along with another bedroom. Free WiFi is available. Step outside and enjoy river views, river sports, hiking, bicycling, museums, shopping, and more in this quaint town that is adjacent to the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and surrounded by other national parks, farms, and Civil War battlegrounds. Although located only 60 miles from DC, the Inn is "a world away" from life in modern urban and suburban cities. We invite you to travel "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house" for relaxation, recreation, and retreat. ... more less
