“Great House, Great Location!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

My wife and I had an absolute blast at Stonehouse B&B in Harpers Ferry. You walk out the front door and you are in the heart of everything. Chris has done an amazing job restoring the 1800's house and his taste in decoration was spot on. It doesn't feel like grandma's house but you sure feel at home. Awesome heart pine floors and exposed beams, this place is cool from top to bottom. We've stayed in other B&B's in the past and have enjoyed them, but this one is very special. it's easy to see the care that Chris has put into his place and easy to feel how he and Cane, his great dog, makes you feel at home. Our room was great and the breakfast was out of this world. We can't wait to go back this winter and sit by the awesome wood stove and sip mulled wine!! Ask Chris about the awesome hiking trails right out side his front door

Just spent a 3-day weekend at the Stonehouse, which was a great place for what we wanted. Because it's in the lower town, we could have one of Chris's wonderful breakfasts and then a peaceful walk around the town or down by the river before the crowds arrived. After walking around the area, which is quite up-and-down, we went back to our room for a nap and/or a book before dinner. Unlike a lot of B&B owners, Chris doesn't fuss much and we never felt the place was off-limits during the middle of the day.

The only drawback was the noise from passing trains, even at night - which is the trade-off for the great location. And it won't stop us from staying at the Stonehouse on our next trip to Harpers Ferry.

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.
