Exceeded expectation

  • 5 of 5

This house was everything we hoped for. It was beautiful and quite comfortable. We enjoyed the front porch and screened in back porch so much. As advertised it is walking distance to the restaurants and shops in Harpers Ferry. Both the Appalachian Trail and the Harpers Ferry National Park are very close and easy to access. This area is rich in history and many beautiful little towns are only minutes away. We picked Harpers Ferry because it was close to Baltimore and DC for easy access. This is a great place to stay to enjoy the beautiful countryside of this region.

Wonderful home for creating wonderful memories

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home for the gathering of our family. We loved the home. Big kitchen for cooking, large dining room for eating, grill outside with beautiful patio, front porch perfect for evening sitting and talking to people as they walk by, bedrooms were wonderful, bathrooms were beautiful, upstairs attic bedroom was amazing. Great location to many historical sites and the AT. If this house could talk it would tell about the wonderful time our family had in this home. Miss Deborah was a wonderful hostess. I recommend this home to everyone.

Great time with family at lovely home in Harpers Ferry

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time! Love the house... big beautiful with plenty rooms, porches, patio to enjoy the quiet evenings! We hiked into and out of Harpers Ferry, walked the little bit of Appalachian trail around Jefferson Rock, visited the National Park, white water tubing on Shenandoah and Potomac! It was all fantastic for myself, two sisters, brother in law, nieces and nephew! Many thanks for your lovely home in most beautiful country! Tess Martinez Washington DC

House is located in historic village of Harpers Ferry on a quaint, charming street overlooking Potomac River; featured in This Old House Magazine. Enjoy kayaking, tubing, rafting, and fishing on Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers; enjoy hiking on nearby C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail and biking, and horseback riding on C&O Towpath (can cycle all the way to Washington, DC and Cumberland, MD). Harpers Ferry National Park and historic Old Town are a short walk away.

There is much history to be explored in the town and surrounding area, as control of Harpers Ferry switched many times between the North and South during the Civil War. You can visit museums and exhibits and see where John Brown's raid took place in the National Park. A civil war buff's dream location.

Great home base for day trips to Washington, DC, by car or train, to Antietam and Gettysburg Battlefields, and to historic towns of Shepherdstown, WV, Frederick, MD, and Leesburg, VA.

Harpers Ferry is nestled at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers and surrounded by breathtaking mountain and river vistas. Thomas Jefferson said that the view from the promontory named for him overlooking the Shenandoah River was worth a journey from Europe.
