“Gorgeous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014 via mobile

This was the first place we stayed on a recent tour of Virginia and West Virginia. It set a high standard! The house itself is fascinating: built in the early 20C with lots of quirky features. Be sure to take the self-guided tour. If my house was this lovely, I wouldn't want to share it, but I'm so glad Chris and Ed do. We stayed in Cedar which had views over the Potomac, as does the verandah at the back. Breakfasts are wonderful (fresh peaches in rosemary and honey syrup stick in the memory) and there's always a yummy (or sometimes rummy in the case of Ed's Jamaica on the Potomac cake) treat waiting in the afternoon. The house is within easy walking distance of the historic centre of Harpers Ferry and it and neighbouring Bolivar have plenty of dining options for a few nights. Hikes, such as Maryland Heights, are also nearby. A total delight all round.

My husband and I fully enjoyed our recent stay at Laurel Lodge with its interesting history; beautiful furnishings; clean, comfortable accommodations; delicious breakfast using local products; and convenient location within walking distance to Harpers Ferry attractions. We truly appreciated our gracious hosts, who made us feel welcome and respected our privacy while sharing their lovely home. We highly recommend Laurel Lodge!

My husband and I went for a romantic weekend getaway, and felt completely pampered. When we first arrived, it was a bit late and we had brought a picnic dinner with bottle of wine. The hosts gladly provided us with wine glasses, plates and silverware in a lovely little dining room all to ourselves. From the thick fluffy towels, fine linens, and gorgeous antiques, to the interesting and amusing historical tour of the property the next day, our hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home, relaxed, and entertained. The breakfast, served in a room with spectacular views of the river from up on high, was healthy but filling. The house itself is exquisitely restored. Quiet, but walking distance from the museums and shops of Harper's Ferry. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: The best views are the rooms to the back of the house. We stayed in the front room with queen bed; q...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Laurel Lodge and it was wonderful! The room was very clean and Chris was a wonderful host. Our view overlooking the Appalachian mountains was breath taking. We were able to walk into town and hike for a bit in the evening. Breakfast was delicious. My husband and I continued our anniversary trip to DC and realized we left our ipad in our room. Ed and Chris had already emailed us when we called in inquire! They sent the device immediately via certified/insured mail and we were so thankful. What a wonderful experience all across the boards!

Stunning B&B. Very comfortable and extremely atmospheric. The furnishings and decoration are of first class standard. Beds are so comfortable I wanted to take them home. The welcome and hospitality were faultless. Breakfast was tremendous and the coffee was excellent. With wonderful views and great history we thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

It doesn't get any better than this. The Lodge itself is spectacular, but the view of the Potomac is stunning. It was immaculately clean and comfortable. The breakfast is gourmet and the hosts are very welcoming. I travel here for business frequently, and I will be back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are comfortable, but Cedar View and Pine View rooms overlook the Potomac. Be sure...

Beautiful. Beautiful. Beautiful.

The Lodge was old built in the early 1900s. It has been renovated and period furniture graces the rooms. It was a pleasure to stay there. The view from the back porch was breath taking. We saw bald eagles right in front of us. The two course breakfast was wonderful. The proprietors very knowledgeable and helpful. You could walk from the lodge to Harpers Ferry downtown. You certainly felt at home. We definitely want to go back.
