The operator of this establishment has been very frustrating for me to deal with. She has a phone # listed on her website which I called to set up a reservation and later I had to call back and cancel the reservation. I made this call more than a week in advance which is what is required to still get...

Experienced radical hospitality, a much needed retreat and respite from TV, technology and stress. Delighted in an all at once Spring springing in Harper's Ferry after our deep South's early display of azaleas and then followed by the very late arrival of Spring buds and blooms in Michigan so 3 Springs this year. Afternoon arrival by train from DC direct...

The Town's Inn was exactly what I was searching for during my weekend in Harpers Ferry. The Inn is situated right in the heart of the historic part of the town. It has a small outdoor table to sit on a nice warm sunny day. The restaurant is OK with friendly staff who are also your bell boys and your...

We took our 13 year old twin boy and girl to Harper's Ferry to enjoy the rich history that this area has to offer. The Mountainview Suite at the Town's Inn was the perfect place to relax after a long day of travel. The staff were amazing, incredibly helpful and kind, making our family feel completely at home.

We went as a family with three small kids. The two ladies who run the inn are very sweet, warm, ands welcoming. The location is wonderful, right in the historical Harpers Ferry town. It was neat to stay in a historical home. The breakfast was yummy.

Spacious yet cozy in the Mountain View Room. The room had so much character and great potential for a family of four. Unfortunately, there were a few major issues. First, there is a full-time tenant who lives upstairs with a family and a dog You can here everything from below and the worst part is they smoke throughout the evening...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. My wife, two daughters, and I stayed here Thanksgiving night. We hiked during the daylight and had Thanksgiving dinner in the evening then hiked in the morning again.

After a long day on the road visiting 22 unique artisans in 8 different locations, we arrived at the Town's Inn for the evening. This historic Inn (circa 1840) has been undergoing some remodeling and updates, but melding the old and the new quite nicely. We were greeted by Karan Townsend, the Proprietor, when we arrived and she showed us...

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
