My husband & I flew out from CA to visit our daughter in the Baltimore area. We decided to all spend the night in Harpers Ferry & brush up on our history. The Town's Inn was the perfect place to stay. The quaint old stone building (I LOVE stone!) added greatly to our experience of being in such a historical...

Stayed in the Mountain View room which is small and a bit difficult to get in and out of (banged my head a few times), but authentic to the era (circa 1840). Private bathroom is separate, but clean and functional. A visit to Harpers Ferry is like going back in time. A stay at the Town's Inn adds to the...

Wonderful experience for rail fans seeking a bit of old West Virginia. Great location with excellent view of historical colonial town. Just minutes walk to Shenandoah/ Potomac shores and Jeffersons Rock. Fantastic customer service, amazing food!

I'm only giving it 1 star because zero or negative aren't an option. First off I get that it's an 1840 building with low doorways and funkiness. However that doesn't begin to apologize for the squalid feel of the place. There were fruit flies in the room. The bathroom shower hadn't been cleaned in ages. The bathroom is one floor...

Karan is a gem. As stated, it's built in 1820, so expect that. For all the negative comments about upstairs footsteps, it being old and all imperfections...duh!! We appreciated the beauty of the old building. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars....and this is not innkeeper fault, although there is a sign on hostel door stating private room and directing...

Decided to visit with my wife for a mini getaway after seeing the inn on Hotel Hell.. Upon arrival, parking , unloading is confusing and difficult. You need to park down the hill at the train station after paying ten dollars and getting material to place on your dashboard. Reasonable fee, but car is not close to building. Our initial...

Two weeks ago I head over to Town's Inn with two other ladies. It was the nastiest place I have ever been in my life. Coffee mugs had layers of dust and horrible bad fungus smell all over the room. We were up whole night coughing and nothing good to say. If your a azmatic you will die . I...

We booked the hostel just for 3 of us, went in around 3.30 p.m. it was musty inside, couldn't rest in the afternoon inside the room even for a short time. Bathroom is a makeshift thing which is acceptable for an ancient property. Beds had red color microfiber sheets, couldn't tell if they were properly cleaned or not.. Worst came...

My friend and I were biking the C&O tow path and stopped at Harper's Ferry to spend the night. We had planned to stay at a hostel, but the hill proved to be more than my friend was willing to tackle after a full day of riding the trail. We happened across this inn which turned out great for us....

I stayed with a group of people in the hostel for a night on a recent bike trip. The room was worlds above what I expected when I booked-- a really neat space with historical vibe that slept 6 in comfort. I can't speak highly enough of Karen, the innkeeper-- she helped us with anything and everything that we asked...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
***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, 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. ... more   less
