This tidy B&B is ideally located to experience Harpers Ferry in all its historic glory. Beautifully decorated in a sparse, hip and eclectic fashion, this ain't your grandmother's B&B. There's no chintz in sight. Instead, there are exposed beams from old canal boats in the ceiling, stone walls two feet thick, wood floors and dim, dramatic lighting. Your host Chris is casual yet attentive, friendly and easy to talk to. You will feel as though you are visiting a friend. The house is gorgeous, rustic and cozy...and has great books on the shelf. I wanted to stay a week just to read several of them. For an authentic Harpers Ferry visit, you cannot do better than Stonehouse B&B (no park service shuttle bus for you!). Can't wait to go back, walk the tow path and hike the surrounding heights. And, of course, enjoy a delicious breakfast and strong coffee with Chris.
