“Great getaway from DC!”
Reviewed August 24, 2013

My mom was visiting from Los Angeles and wanted to treat me to a weekend away from the DC grind. Looking at B&B's -- why wouldn't you want to stay in the same bedroom that Stonewall Jackson did?!? We had a fantastic time staying at the Jackson Rose B&B -- Phil greeted us with a smile and glasses of wine after our drive out from the city and the rest of the weekend went just as well. Deb & Phil made great breakfasts and Roy (their giant but extremely friendly dog) made the house extremely welcoming! We definitely recommend staying there for a mini-getaway!

The Jackson Rose is a wonderful B&B with very friendly owners in Deb and Phil add to this the historical association with General Stonewall Jackson and you have the perfect location to enjoy your stay in Harper's Ferry. My wife and I traveled to the US from the UK and we discovered the Jackson Rose through researching the internet. We were not disappointed. The booking arrangements were made through email with ease. On arrival we were met by Deb who was very welcoming and showed us to our room. Her and Phil's hospitality could not be faulted. They were both accommodating without being intrusive. The house itself is clean and sympathetically decorated and furnished in period pieces. For those interested and I assume this would be most there are an abundance of books on Jackson, John Brown and the Civil War in general to browse and peruse. There is a public room with TV and fridge for guests to use with their own refreshments. Breakfasts are served in a communal room with the guests from the other two rooms which made for friendly, interesting and stimulating conversation at breakfast. The breakfasts themselves were fulsome with plenty to eat and drink. For those interested the owners do have a large dog which is kept well away from the public areas. We like dogs and for the two nights we stayed we only saw it once. For those intent on visiting the NPS park of Harper's Ferry then the Jackson Rose is about a 20 minute walk although this is far better than having to drive to the Visitor Centre about 2 miles away and taking the shuttle bus.
I would love to have the opportunity of staying her again and would recommend it to everyone thinking of staying in Harper's Ferry.

We have been visiting Harpers Ferry for years but had never stayed the night. I found the Jackson Rose while searching for places to stay. I am very happy we chose it. The owners were very nice but not intrusive. We had a beautiful room, the Linden, and had access to the other areas of the home, the living room, porch, and a TV room which we didn't use. The breakfast was delicious and the company of the other table mates was something to look forward to. We will definitely be returning someday!

My husband and I stayed at the Jackson Rose during a getaway weekend to Harpers Ferry in May, and we absolutely loved it. Our room was very comfortable and secluded, and each morning's breakfast was incredibly delicious. There were homemade muffins and biscuits, still hot, and delicious lemon crepes with a fruit topping...and plentiful coffee. Deb and her husband are wonderful. We really enjoyed talking with the other guests (two other couples), too -- they were a lot of fun.

The B & B was a bit of a hike from downtown, but we enjoyed the exercise. When we would come back from a long day out, there would be something fantastic waiting for us at the B & B, like homemade ginger snaps and sherry. Amazing! It was also nice to be very close to two good restaurants for dinner, the Canal House and the Anvil, each a short walk away. We made use of the Jackson's Rose's great movie and game selection, too -- we took some Trivial Pursuit cards to our room and had a great time with the nostalgia.

I highly recommend the Jackson Rose!

Room Tip: While the Garrett Room involves more stairs and is smaller than the others, it's secluded and re...

We arrived hot, tired and stressed after a difficult time at Dulles. An hour after arrival the wonderful welcome, along with fresh lemonade and home made cookies, as well the serenity of our cool bedroom restored our energy and enthusiasm.
We stayed for 4 nights and each morning the breakfast was exceptionally good. One of the advantages of staying in a well-run B & B is the local knowledge the owners can give you, such as where to eat and where to park. Deb and Phil helped us get the most from the area.
Harpers Ferry is a lovely place to visit, and it is possible to walk into town and back from the B & B.
So, a lovingly restored house in a historic town, with exceptional hospitality and food. What more could one desire?

This lovely B&B was a sheer delight in every aspect. The late 18th century home has been beautifully and faithfully restored, and is warm and welcoming in every way. Deb & Phil are available when needed but never intrusive, so we felt like we were in our own home (with a few other house guests.). We were offered cold drinks and a small snack when we arrived, which made unpacking less of a chore. Even though all the rooms were filled with other guests, it was very quiet at night; the rooms must be very sound proof. There are no TVs in the bedroom, but a large one was in the cozy study. We enjoyed not having one so temptingly available, but if you have to have one in your own room, you won't be happy with this aspect.

The breakfasts were wonderful! Plenty to eat (too much?) and VERY tasty. Homemade jams and muffins, fresh garden peaches that were so juicy, tasty omelets, etc. Deb and Phil both do the cooking and obviously know how to do it well. The bed was comfortable and there were plenty of pillows. By the way, we were visiting during a serious heat wave, but this B&B was kept properly air conditioned and exceedingly comfortable. Such a delight to return to at the end of a hot day.

The inn is a short walk (1mile) from the Harpers Ferry historical area and National Park, for those who like to stroll. We parked in the park parking lots and took the shuttle.

We will DEFINITELY return to the lovely Jackson Rose!

Room Tip: We had the best room, called the Jackson Rose room. It was certainly wonderful.

This bed and breakfast was absolutely exceptional. The building itself and it's gardens are such a beautiful site to see, and the interior is also a pleasure to experience, but beyond that what makes this B+B so memorable are the hosts.

Phil and Deb were incredibly nice and warm, genuinely good energy. The breakfasts they serve here were the best I've ever had in any B+B or hotel I've been to. My girlfriend and I had come here as a relaxing getaway, but since we are active people, we couldn't help but exhaust ourselves each of the four days we had stayed, but every time we had a chance to interact with the hosts, there was a genuine positive interest in our experience with our entire trip. On the last morning, while savoring yet another incredible breakfast, Deb had asked if we had heard of a band/song that reminded her of Brooklyn (since we are from Brooklyn) we told her we hadn't unfortunately and thought that was the end of the conversation, yet a couple minutes afterword we start to hear a very beautiful song subtly playing in the background, and realized Deb or Phil had actually put it on for us to enjoy! It was such a heart warming experience... not to even mention the freshly baked cookies Deb had given us in the middle of our third day there while we were trying to rush to a local battlefield for a re-enactment...

Maybe I shouldn't mention this for future customers (sorry Phil), but Phil even in the very beginning while I was first trying to reserve a room months in advance, was gracious enough to work out a bulk package deal with me, knowing I was on a budget but would spend more than a couple of nights there. Thank you Phil.

This B+B is just phenomenal on so many levels, and the culture of the gracious hosts just absolutely warmed our hearts. We would without hesitation comeback to Harper's Ferry just to stay at the Jackson Rose!!!

Thanks again Deb and Phil and we hope to see you again!
