“Perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

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.

We had an excellent stay at the Stone House B&B. The proprietor was fun, accommodating, hospitable, and he cooks one heck of a breakfast. The house itself is charming, has rustic yet hip décor, and has an excellent view of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers. The immediate area around the house has a number of entertaining options visitors should take advantage of, including restaurants, historical tours, and nature trails. We highly recommend the Stone House B&B for your next getaway.

The Stonehouse B&B is located right in the heart of the historic district, within a stone's throw of one of the most breathtaking views on the east coast - the confluence of two rivers and three states: the Potomac meets the Shenandoah and WV, VA and MD form the boundary. We saw trains come and go into and out of the tunnel carved into the cliff from our breakfast table. Chris served us what he calls "Christmas Breakfast" which was a puffy egg and sausage bread pudding. Along with grilled pineapple and plenty of juice and good coffee, it was a wonderful breakfast. The B&B is authentically restored and furnished simply with pieces that look to be of the period except for the vintage motorcycle parked in the living room. Our beds were very comfortable and the temperature inside was just right, especially by the wood stove, where we sat and chatted with Chris for quite a while as his dog, Cane, dozed nearby. We really liked Chris' personal style and philosophy. He likes to cook food he has grown, drink wine he has made himself, and live a simple life. As we were leaving, we watched him prepare and hang meat jerky in a homemade smoker. As in many small towns, night life mainly consists of seeing friends over a meal, which is what we did at the Press Room in nearby Shepherdstown (reservations necessary). In the rooms, we found books we would actually like to read and none of the clutter and cutesy knick knacks that are often found in many B&Bs. The lower part of Harpers Ferry where the Stonehouse is located is mainly taken up by historic preservation exhibits managed by the Park Service. Literally next door and across the street visitors can walk into the building where John Brown staged his famous raid, go up the hand hewn stone steps to the church that served as a hospital during the Civil War, and walk inside a restored general store, bakery, horologist's shop, and other restored structures, all for free. The Stonehouse has only been open for a few months, but we believe Chris has made a fantastic start. We are B&B owners ourselves, and give Chris high praise for the quality of his restoration and his hospitality.

My fiance took me to Harpers ferry WV for my birthday this past monday, we stayed at the stonehouse bed and breakfast Monday night, what can I say It was like staying with a close friend, Chris is one great host he makes you feel very welcome and his dog is great, Rooms were very very clean and nice and down to earth and the view was outstanding of the mountain, Breakfast was out of this world, my fiance went down hour before I got up and just hung out and spoke with Chris, when I came down he had coffee juice, and a great egg souffle and fresh fruit for us, so in a nut shell if you want to go and feel like your at home or your best friends house the Stonehouse Band B is the place, oh and it's right down town with parking out back.
