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.
