I have to start by saying that I LOVE old buildings with history-- and I was thrilled that this inn was built around 1840--- the character in the architecture, with so much stone, and the beautiful thick wood floors-- just beautiful. The room was lovely--...More

We wanted to stay close to the train station since we did not have a car. The room; no place to hang your clothes because the innkeeper had her personal items stored in the closet. There was no bathroom in the room, but the bathroom...More

Lovely little inn, clean and generously hospitable host and staff. These people know how to make you feel at home. We took care of ourselves by staying here, and then took a little more care by having breakfast at the neighboring cafe. Great breakfast. Best...More

The inn was really comfortable, staff very friendly, and location was perfect. We really enjoyed the stone wall in the shower room and the balcony overlooking the river and the town. We plan to visit again!

About
Description
***Rates starting at $120*** This family-friendly historic Inn (circa 1840) is located in the center of the Harpers Ferry living history village situated at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, More just steps from the C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail, as well as the storybook train station served by Amtrak and MARC trains. Open from 6 a.M. - 10 P.M. Every day of the year, the restaurant on the first level of the Inn offers indoor and patio dining featuring popular cuisine, including homemade specialties and healthy options. Also on the first floor is a Sundry / Snack / Supply Shoppe which has been described as a "high-end convenience store, a mini-health food store, and an old-fashioned country store with local products." The second floor consists of two bedrooms with beautiful slate-tile private bathrooms. A parlor containing a treasure of books, toys, and games is situated on the third floor, along with another bedroom. Free WiFi is available. Step outside and enjoy river views, river sports, hiking, bicycling, museums, shopping, and more in this quaint town that is adjacent to the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and surrounded by other national parks, farms, and Civil War battlegrounds. Although located only 60 miles from DC, the Inn is "a world away" from life in modern urban and suburban cities. We invite you to travel "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house" for relaxation, recreation, and retreat. Less

The Town's Inn is close by but if you need help with the luggage the owner of the hotel may be able to find a solution. The Town's Inn is not a B&B but there is a coffee shop at the hotel that opens at 6am.
