About Laura Knott

We have been in the tourism industry since 1994 and the Battlefields Inn is our second vacation rental property. We also operate the Harpers Ferry Campgound. Because of our long history in the industry we understand the needs and desires of vistors to our area. Although we operate several other businesses, the vacation rentals are my primary focus personally so you will get the attention to detail you deserve.

Laura Knott purchased this house in 2011

Why Laura Knott chose Harpers Ferry

We purchased this home in 2011 and over the winter of 2011-2012, we totally refurbished this historical home to bring it up to modern standards. It is conveniently located near other Harpers Ferry attractions and our other vacation rental making it an easy combination for larger groups. The house has a huge yard and field out back which gives plenty of area for relaxing or playing. Every year in May we host the Harpers Ferry Half Marathon and kids fun run nearby. The starting line is right out front of the home.

What makes this house unique

The home has been beautifully restored while maintaining the historical character. It is convenient to all the Harpers Ferry attractions some of which are within walking distance yet the home is in a semi rural setting. We have 2 master bedrooms with king beds, one on the main floor that is handicap accessible. We also have an internet ready big screen tv, a hot tub on our covered back porch, gas fireplace in the living room, and a large front porch with rocking chairs for relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our two families had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. We toured the area and Thanksgiving day was enjoyed with our grandson and three of his college friends from Patrick Henry College around your dining room table. We loved having the assortment of spices to enhance our meals!!"

Great Spot for a Group Right Next to River Riders

  • 4 of 5
We had a group of 10 guys who used this spot as home base for our weekend in Harper's Ferry where we floated down the river with River Riders and hit Charles Town for "races and slots." It's the perfect location for any River Riders activity since you just have to walk across a field to get there. The house itself was clean and had the right amount of sleeping arrangements for 10, as long as you're willing to double up in king beds. It's not going to blow you away with amenities, and only two full baths is a challenge for a group of 10, but it worked well for us. The owner was very responsive as we approached out stay and even offered to mail a forgotten item after we left.

spacious and comfortable vacation home

  • 5 of 5
My boyfriend and I live in DC and wanted to be able to get away into the mountains to relax for the week-end. However, I was very last-minute with my planning--I called on Friday afternoon hoping for last minute availability for that very night/weekend. Laura (the owner) told me that she had had a late unexpected cancellation and would be happy to rent us the house for the weekend. She made the process of booking and paying for the house fast and easy. Our late arrival to check-in was accommodated without difficulty. When we arrived at the house, we were happy to find it clean and inviting. There would be plenty of room for 8 people (given that there are 2 master bedrooms and a 3rd bedroom with bunk beds). However, for 2 people, the house still felt cozy, because we stayed on the first floor which has one of the 2 bedrooms with adjoining full bath, the living room, the dining room, and the kitchen. The hot-tub really put us in relaxation mode. It appears to be newer, it is very clean, and it is located outside, but has an overhand roof so that we still could still enjoy ourselves even though it was snowing! All in all, the entire weekend was fun and the logistics of renting were a breeze.

Very Disappointing

  • 2 of 5
We are disappointed. We rented this house for 8 days. This house is not from a private owner. This house is from a very busy company, who is based next to this house, on a dead-end road. The company organized outdoor activities. That means that the open garden from this house is a very busy car park from the company. At the front of the house isn't neither a private space to sit. And in the weekend is the green at the opposite of the house a carpark for the Fleamarket. The company drives the people to the river whole day/evening long, 100 ? times a day buses, lorry's tractors, cars, motors, name it, and they drive along the house.
And then above all that, during the night you hear a lot, we mean really a lot, of traffic noise from the busy highway nearby. Even our house in Amsterdam has less noise.

We, a family from Amsterdam, Holland, Europe, choose the house for rest, for a private spot, nature, that is what the advert look like. Neither of all we got. We feel betrayed. We were in the understanding that we were corresponding/emailing with the owner, but when we made half of the payment, there wasn't any response from the owner at all, when we emailed for more questions. Now we now why. The company is very popular for their outdoor activities.They don't need to invest with good relations with house renters.

The house is basic, very well cleaned, not with any cosy detail, but everything was there. The beds were good, the bathrooms as well, including a lot of towels, and the hot tub was okay. So that makes the two stars.

We think this house is not for a family, this is for boyscouts, girlscouts, or group of friends, groups that can't do any harm at all at the house. Or..Perfectly made for Riverrider adventures guests. Just for a few days. We really think the owner (read the company) should have told all their activities in our first email conversation, and recommend us to look further. We really regret the choose of this house for our USA adventure.

Great home base for our vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is a very nicely remodeled property that served as a cozy home base for our family vacation in the region! The home was very clean and well maintained. It served me, my wife, and our three teenage sons well during our weeklong stay.

You can tell the owners have put a lot of energy into remodeling this property. Here are a couple of highlights:

Comfy beds: Everyone said that the beds were very comfortable. I know the bed in the master downstairs was very nice.

Wifi: If you are like our family....this is a must, even on vacation! The wifi, I believe, comes via Comcast cable and was reliable through the week. Used multiple devices with no problems. We even hooked our Apple TV up to the flatscreen to enjoy some Netflix a few evenings.

Hottub/back porch area: This was my favorite. The house has a nicely sized hottub on the back porch with direct access from the downstairs master bedroom. We used the hot tub everyday after our tourist adventures. I also really enjoyed the back patio area with grill and patio furniture. Watched the deer drinking coffee every morning.

Kitchen/Dining room: A nicely remodeled and laid out kitchen. My wife liked every bit. The only drawback was some lower than expected water pressure at times. We also enjoyed using the dining room table for family meals each day. Good set up!

Location: We used the house as home based for the week. From here we drove into DC to tour the mall (75 minute drive); toured Antietam battlefield (25 minute drive north); enjoyed the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum at Dulles (70 minute drive); and spent a day at the Harpers Ferry National Park (2 minute drive). So much to see an do.

Harpers Ferry is a hidden gem of a visit. Beautiful nature, lots of interesting history, close to amenities like grocery store, movie theaters, highways.

We enjoyed the house and will strongly consider using it again to see more of the area.

Thanks to Laura and others who made ours a memorable stay!

Much better than a Hotel for a long stay

  • 4 of 5
I enjoyed my time at the Battlefield Inn, the proptery was clean and very functional. Great location close to River Riders. The staff was very helpful with any issues we had during our stay. All in all, this was a much better option than a hotel.

Relaxing getaway!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5
The weekend spent here was highly enjoyable and relaxing. The hot tub was wonderful after a long day of white water rafting. While your visiting I highly recommend the canopy tour at River Riders. The house is beautiful inside and the beds were sooooo comfortable, just like being at home without all the work!! I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the front porch in the evenings and there is a local flea market and fruit stand within walking distance. The town of Harpers Ferry is also just a short drive away and we had a beautiful day sightseeing there. Thank you so much for a much for a memorable weekend!!!

The 'Battlefields Inn' is located in the center of the School House Ridge Battlefield where the largest surrender of Union Troops occurred during the Civil War. Stonewall Jackson's troops marched right through the area where the Inn is located during the Battle of Harpers Ferry in September 1862.

The Inn is also near River Riders offering whitewater rafting, zip line canopy tours, aerial adventure parks, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, biking, teambuilding, summer camps for your kids, hiking, climbing, and fishing.

Free access to the deep water Potomac River for your boat at the Harpers Ferry Campground is included with your rental.

It is 5 miles to the Hollywood Casino at the Charles Town Races, 2 miles to the town of Harpers Ferry, and 15 minutes to Shepherdstown. The Appalachian Trail and entrance to the Harpers Ferry National Park are about 1 mile away.
