Our Generals Quarters
Located behind the Inn, this large romantic cottage is completely separate from the main building, yet only steps away. Superbly crafted, the General's Quarters is built in the early 1800's tradition with thick masonry walls, stone foundation, and high ceilings. Featuring a handcrafted pencil post bed, a large bath with beautiful imported tile, and French doors that lead to a large private porch overlooking the gardens. The sitting area highlights the 1830's cooking fireplace, reflecting the building's origin as a summer kitchen. The General's Quarters provides the ultimate setting for privacy and romance.  Room rate is $205-$225

    I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. I didn't want to leave.
  • D Morrison - 10/16/2007
    This was the best B&B that we every selected. Actually our friends selected it. Joanna and Paul were excellent hosts and well informed. The breakfast was superior! I rate it 10 stars! We had a great time and the suite was well equipped, with flowers also, a nice touch. The DVD was informative also and the HD TV was great! Joanna and Paul made sure that our visit was comfortable and enjoyable. We recommend that everyone stays away from the Anvil House Restaruant in Harpers Ferry. The waitress (Heather) was obnoxious, disrespectful, and arrogant. Perhaps she is new to the field of customer service, but she was guaranteed a 18% gratuity (6 of us) and did nothing to earn it. We will never eat there again and warn our friends. We just picked the wrong restaurant. Nothing to do with the B & B.

    Innkeepers very friendly and knowledgeable about area. Breakfast was excellent. Would definitely stay there again and probably bring our parents.
