for many reasons
Welcome to The Town’s Inn
Located mere steps from the rivers, the trails, the train station, the shops, the restaurants, the museums, and much more — the Town’s Inn is a place for all seasons for many reasons!
Our goal at the Town’s Inn (“the Inn”) is to serve individuals, couples, families, and other groups who want to savor the recreational, educational, cultural, and social activities available in this idyllic setting that has not changed much since 1783 when Thomas Jefferson wrote: “The passage of the Patowmac through the Blue Ridge is perhaps one of the most stupendous scenes in Nature… This scene is worth a voyage across the Atlantic.” We hope you enjoy your visit to this well-preserved national treasure that includes both the historic town and its exquisite natural setting!
About The Town’s Inn
The Town’s Inn consists of two pre-Civil War stone residences: the Mountain House at 175 High Street (circa 1820) and the Heritage House at 179 High Street (circa 1840), located in the heart of Lower Town (the historic market district of Harpers Ferry), a block from the Amtrak train station and a few steps away from not only the museums of the living history village (NPS.gov/hafe) but also the C&O Towpath (NPS.gov/choh) and the Appalachian Scenic Trail (nps.gov/appa), which offer bicycling, hiking, river sports, and more. Harpers Ferry, West Virginia (almost heaven), is located at the confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah rivers, approximately 60 miles from Washington, D.C., and Baltimore, Maryland, and provides a nice balance for urban/ suburban lifestyles. The mild temperatures year-round make the Inn a place for all seasons, for many reasons. The average high temperature in February is 45 degrees, which makes winter getaways especially appealing.
