Beautiful, welcoming home

  • 5 of 5

We were only there for the weekend. Everything about the house and this wonderful town was welcoming. The house is uniquely beautiful and allows you to feel the wonderful history of this area. Everything was clean, well stocked and comfortable. A joy to stay here. I would recommend a longer stay as there is so much to see and do in the area and the house invites you to relax and enjoy the ambiance of the town. Thank you Deborah Fleming and Harpers Ferry for welcoming us and making us feel at home.

Wonderful home; Great location

  • 5 of 5

We felt like we were home. Two couples stayed although there was room for more. The house is very nicely decorated with nice furniture. Deborah even put up a Christmas Tree for us. The kitchen had a good selection of dish, pots and pans.

Great location. We had multiple nice walks - down into the main part of town, as well as to other neighborhoods and trails.

Hint: The king size bed on the third floor was very comfortable and had a nice variety of pillows. There is no dresser on the third floor but with the dormers there is enough floor space to lay out suitcases and such and still get around easily (well with a little bending to get around some low ceiling areas - it is the third floor after all). Practically speaking the bath on the third floor is just for that room. It was very quiet up there and I'll pick that room again the next time we visit.

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.
