I stayed at the Teahorse for a week in March. Since this is off-season for the Appalachian Trail, there were several nights I had the multi-bunk room to myself. The couple of other guests who stayed were pleasant and fun to talk to. I went to Shepherdstown each day to do research in Robert C. Byrd's papers. Laurel was a great and friendly host, and willing to chat about my research (which of course was just about all I had in my head at the end of the day). The hostel is technically in Bolivar, WV, but just a short hike down the hill to Harpers Ferry attractions.
