“Great Digs in the Lower Town”
Reviewed August 21, 2012

I pretty much line up with the previous positive reviews. Having just returned from a night at the Stone House, I too can vouch for both the clean lines of the decor and the gracious nature of the Host. You couldnt have a more central location or relaxing atmosphere ....and breakfast, as you've heard, truly is phenomenal. Thanks for a great place to overnight Chris and best of luck with everything.

Chris has done a great job in turning his house into a quaint 3 bedroom place. He has done a very good job with his resoration and not your usual frilly place. Well located in downtown Harpers Ferry. Only problem we had was the RR was working on a tunnell and heald up trains during the day, then let them all roll..ALL night long.

Well appointed rooms that having a few thoughtful and interesting pieces in them - lots of space and very comfortable. Not the typical B&B with clutter and trinkets everywhere. Chris has done a lovely job restoring this old stone house. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of the Lower Town. Parking was included in our rate (which is a treat since it is otherwise $10/day at the National Park Service or train depot!) In the morning, we were able to walk to a great hiking trail and come back and shower before driving home! Highly recommend staying here. Should also note that there was definitely AC (it was over 100 degrees when we stayed there and it was nice & cool in our room!) as well as a television that was thoughtfully 'hidden' on the inside of a trunk.

The Stonehouse B&B is very convenient to the train station, which made it a logical place for us to stay on our train trip. The historic building is being renovated by the owner, so there are projects in progress in several of the rooms. Even with that, it was a delightful B&B.

It is very close to the National Park facilities, to the trails and to the rivers. We had a wonderful time hiking and visiting the National Park.

My historian husband and I had an absolutely delightful stay at this lovely B+ B. We love the dog and the musical instruments that show the character of the owner. The sound of trains and thunder only made it more interesting.

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.
