Step back in time to 1914, to a lovely solid brick Victorian. Enjoy the spacious rooms; the wrap-around porch; the summer porch overlooking the Victorian garden; and much more. The setting is Ranson, West Virginia - the neighboring hamlet of Charles Town,WV. Nestled in the Shenandoah Valley, The Robinson House guest home offers an alternative to a motel and to the bed and breakfast inns. Our guests have the opportunity to rent the entire home. If you are a business traveler; vacationing in the historical Shenandoah Valley; or just in the area for a get-away weekend, you can enjoy the amenities and privacy of your home away from home.

The Robinson House is the perfect setting for the couple wanting to experience the historical flavor of the area; for a family attending a wedding, or reunion; the business traveler; or a writer needing quiet inspiration.

About Joyce Garrison

A native of Delaware and the Eastern Shore of Maryland, Joyce was educated at Bob Jones University in Greenville, South Carolina. She has made West Virginia her home for 43 years. She and her husband purchased The Robinson House in 2005 from the former owners who were moving to a retirement community. The plan was to make the home into an extended stay. After working on the home for over a year, Joyce decided she wanted to share the history of the area and house with others. Thus was born the idea of the 'guest house' - a home away from home. The home is Joyce's version of a bed and breakfast without actually serving breakfast. Gourmet food is stocked in the refrigerator and guests enjoy the home and food at their leisure.

Joyce Garrison purchased this house in 2005

Why Joyce Garrison chose Charles Town

Too many old homes are destroyed to make room for parking or offices buildings. I wanted to preserve an example of quality craftsmanship and character that is lost on newer homes today. The Robinson House has the original woodwork and varnish; plaster walls; light fixtures and bathrooms. It does have updated electric, plumbing and heating (heat pumps).

What makes this house unique

One could say The Robinson House is my doll house! I love the wrap-around front porch with the rocking chairs; the rose garden; the old flower beds filled with perennials from a by gone era and the fish pond. The home represents to me a special time in history where life moved at a slower pace and people cared about their friends and neighbors.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! The Robinson House is absolutely beautiful and everything was perfect for our stay. We really appreciated how you went out of your way to prepare for our stay and to make us comfortable while we were here. Your definitely went above and beyond! God Bless,

Beautiful Home......Amazing Owner!

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband and another couple stayed at this beautiful historic home for a weekend of adventure. We arrived Friday evening to a very clean and comfortable home. The amount of detail that the owner has poured into this home is amazing. Once you enter you can tell how much she loves this house and you cannot help but to love it too. The yard and pool are also very well maintained and we were sad that we did not get a chance to take advantage of the pool. This location was perfect if you plan on tubing or checking out the horse races.....or just relaxing. The extra touches, like the yummy chocolate chip cookies and filled fridge, makes the stay even more enjoyable. Thank you Joyce for everything- we do look forward to coming back again!

Joyce, the owner of the property, is perhaps one of the kindest, most considerate hosts I've ever met. She was so sweet and accommodating. The property is in pristine condition and incredibly well stocked. Joyce goes above and beyond all expectations for a rental of this kind. Stay here. You will not be disappointed.

Charming Victorian!

  • 5 of 5
Ample room to spread out for our family of 5. Home has many amenities and is within walking distance of beautiful historic Charles Town. Highly recommend this property, the owner extremely thoughtful, (replaced propane tank on grill promptly), and knowledgeable of area. We enjoyed Mediterranean Cafe which we walked to, and learning that John Brown was tried in the Court House. Also close to Sleepy Hollow golf course , good family golf.

Great!

  • 5 of 5
Everything was really great! The rental was super clean & in a great location! Judy provided lots of historical information on the home and the surrounding area. She even had a dozen eggs, scones, coffee and other breakfast necessities for us to cook the next morning! Minutes to the race track, Shepherdstown, and Harpers Ferry and very convenient. I highly recommend!!

Owner's Response: I always appreciate hearing from our guests and knowing they enjoyed their home away from home. From my travels with my husband and friends, it's a pleasure to arrive for a get-away to find the refrigerator filled with treats and knowing you will wake up to fresh brewed coffee. Plus, you don't have to dress for breakfast - come as you are and anytime you chose! It's your home away from home. Happy travels!

Charles Towne home

  • 5 of 5
The home was beautiful, so comfortable, spacious, relaxing, very clean, filled with amenities, well-stocked refrigerator and cupboards, close to many historic and fun things to do. Beds were very comfortable with an assortment of different types of pillows. Plenty of bath linens were available. The owner was so helpful and really attended to every need. The pool was fun, clean and the gardens were beautiful and so conducive to relaxation.We had a wonderful time here and hated to leave this beautiful and beautifully decorated home.
