“Friendly, Comfortable, Historic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Phil treated me to a little tour of his B & B when I arrived. I was exploring the Civil War and was curious about what daily life might have been like "back in the day". This was easy to imagine here in this excellently restored (neat & clean) house. Plus my hosts had put a looseleaf book on the desk in the Stonewall Jackson room where I stayed that had a detailed history of their house and a mini bio of Stonewall Jackson. Included in this book was a "Things to Do" list of nearby wineries and directions to the Harper's Ferry National Park which was located just down the road. Rangers there provide a shuttle bus to the historically restored town (a "must see"). Deb's breakfast, served by Phil, was delightful - there were homemade biscuits and homemade jams, omelets and good coffee - Deb and Phil are warm and friendly hosts and I look forward to returning to their B & B.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Jackson Rose over the Fourth of July. We had researched it ahead of time and found all the descriptions on their site to be true. It was even more lovely in person. We staying in the Linden room, which overlooks the back yard. The house is true to it's period. It is cool and clean and inviting. We walked down into the "lower town" several times. The location was great for our trips to Antietam and Shepherdstown. We also took time for a hike up to Maryland Heights - and highly recommend it! An added bonus for us was "Roy" the loveable, large dog of the house. Deb and Phil are careful to keep him from guests if they are not dog lovers...but if you ARE a dog lover, you have the joy of playing with him if you'd like. Deb's breakfasts were AMAZING - different each of the four mornings we were there - and they held us through the day until dinner. We hope to return, and highly recommend it.

This is an amazing B&B simply because of the age of the house and the history associated with the place. It was a very special experience to stay in the same room that Stonewall Jackson inhabited over 150 years ago. Phil and Deb are lovely hosts, the breakfasts were delicious, and the B&B is in an ideal location for exploring Harpers Ferry and Antietam.

My husband and I stayed here thru a "fluke". We were supposed to be at another B&B but unfortunately they had overbooked so they sent us here. What an awesome turn if events this was for us! The house, as well as the hosts were amazing and gracious. The history of this house is something I would love to come back and explore more thoroughly. If you are planning a trip to Harpers Ferry I highly recommend staying at the Jackson Rose - you won't be disappointed.

My husband and I stayed at the Jackson Rose for two nights this spring, and we are both in love with the place. We read the reviews here and it sounded so nice we booked a mid-week stay. The house itself is a historic landmark, Stonewall Jackson having stayed here in the early days of the Civil War. The decor is all wonderfully period - antiques fill the rooms and it all takes you right back to the 1860's. The hosts are Phil and Deb Hale and they are very welcoming and put you at ease right away. We stayed in the Linden room (large with a comfy bed) which overlooks the huge tree and garden gracing the back yard. The front yard had a large garden and it was all in bloom while we were there. Just lovely. The first day, after a scrumptious breakfast (Deb makes her own preserves and they are amzing) we strolled through Harpers Ferry and enjoyed the remarkably preserved historic town center. There are lots of hiking trails in the area and you have a choice between strenuous and flat trails. The second day, after once again enjoying a great breakfast we spent the day visiting the Antietam battlefield (which was very moving) and did a little window shopping in Shephardstown.
All in all it was just what we wanted; beautiful and relaxing surroundings, a lovely and historic home to stay in run by charming hosts, and a chance to brush up on our history. We will definitely plan a return visit to the JAckson Rose, we have already suggested a stay there to our friends in the DC area.

My wife and I chose the Jackson Room and it was very comfortable. Phil and Deb took great care of us. We were welcomed with a cool drink when we arrived and there were home-made cookies and sherry left out in the dining room to help ourselves to at other times. Breakfast was good with home-made jams and muffins with cranberries from the garden, among other things. We arrived in Harper's Ferry by train and Phil picked us up from the station a mile away from their home. Since we were returning by an early morning commuter train we were not expecting to be dropped back at the station. But we were very pleasantly surprised with Phil's offer to be up by half past six to drop us off again (with bagged breakfast). That was very kind and made our whole stay especially convenient and pleasant. There are a couple of restaurants a five-minute walk away from the Jackson Rose. It's a 20-minute plus walk to the touristy downtown area, which isn't very far if you don't mind walking. We don't drive much, and so it was convenient that Harper's Ferry was accessible by train from Washington DC. In all, I highly recommend the Jackson Rose.

We went to Harpers Ferry for a couple of day hikes on the Appalachian Trail. Although we left the Inn well before regular breakfast time our first two mornings, Phil put out fruit, coffee and fixins. Our third day we had the breakfast, and it was wonderful. We are mostly vegan, and they worked with us., Deb and Phil were fabulous hosts, and gave us a tour of the garden. The room was clean and quite comfortable. It was a perfect location to tour the historic district. We met several people who had stayed there multiple times, and can see why they return. We will too, on our next hike.
