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 West Virginia

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!!"

A great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for our girls weekend getaway. Close enough from the DC area to make it a short drive, but far enough away to relax. We loved the hot tub and the outdoor seating area. The house was very well maintained and up-to-date for a rental house. Plenty of room for 6-8 adults. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook multiple meals, and a large dining room table for us all to eat, talk or play board games. It was also a short walk to the River Riders main building. We did the zip line canopy tour, which was great! I would highly recommend this property for nice little getaway.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect "home base" for our adventure! Four intrepid hikers walked the B&O Canal Trail from Edward's Ferry back to Harper's Ferry, while the non-hikers enjoyed the nearby wineries. We found the accommodations to be clean, comfortable, and very well supplied. The hot tub was much appreciated by the hikers at the end of their 50 km trek. Laura was easy to work with while making the arrangements, and checking in after 5:00 pm was not a problem. Almost everything that we needed was provided; my only suggestion would be small bars of soap in the 2 showers. Overall, I heartily recommend this property.

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a larger group and were able to comfortably fit everyone and enjoy the Battlefields Inn. The hot tub was great, the grill worked well, and the fire pit was a great addition. Plenty of seating outdoors and indoors for everyone. The location is well-located if you're interested in the historical aspects of Harpers Ferry or the outdoors; but is also close to the wineries of Virginia. Overall, I would recommend this property for a large group or family.

Nice rental

  • 5 of 5

Battlefield Inn was very comfortable with plenty of room for everyone. We were a smaller group so had more space than needed, but could definitely see how you could sleep a lot more people for a great river riding weekend. Plenty of dishes and towels, along w/ an outdoor jacuzzi for relaxing evenings, plus a fire pit that we unfortunately never used. There was also plenty of yard area for the kids to play. The street the house is on dead ends around a curve into River Riders so there is some traffic going past for that but it wasn't bad at all. The freeway is nearby and could be heard some when outside, but inside the house you didn't hear it at all. There is only one TV in the house so if you have family that can't agree on what to watch then could be a concern, but there were several games and the jacuzzi so that gave us all plenty of options. Harpers Ferry historic district was very nearby, which was the reason for our trip, so made commuting there very easy. Would definitely stay here again if opportunity ever came up. Owner was easy to reach and responded quickly. Payment process was easy. Renzo was very polite and informative when took us to the house after check in, and responded quickly when we had a question about the upstairs AC, which turned out to be something simple for him to fix w/ the airflow.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house. Perfect for vacationing in the Harper's Ferry area. Booking was a breeze and management was very easy to work with. Our family will be booking again, hopefully, next year. The Adventure Park was a blast. Be sure to add on the "Superman" zip!

Tom, Kathleen, Rebecca & grandkids loved this place.

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.

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.
