Description of the Inn

Find out all 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. Located on the main street of town in the middle of the historical village, the Inn is well equipped to accommodate retreats, reunions, special events, and fun-filled getaways for families, couples, and individuals. Gather for meals, meetings, or just relaxation in the common areas, which include the beautiful stone patios that surround and connect the two buildings of the Inn, the Parlor in the Heritage House at 179 High Street, and the Marketplace Country Store & Self-Serve Café in the Mountain House at 175 High Street.

LODGING: Each of the eight guest rooms in the Inn is unique — but all rooms have a fridge (about 3.5 cubic feet), a microwave, a coffeemaker, and complimentary coffee and tea. Six of the rooms have private bathrooms, but only three of these rooms have the private bathroom en suite. The other two rooms share one bathroom. All of the rooms are family-friendly — and two of the rooms are pet-friendly. The prices of the rooms range from $79 to $210.

MARKETPLACE COUNTRY STORE & SELF-SERVE CAFE: The Inn offers year-round dining and shopping (6:00 a.m. – 10:00 p.m. daily). The Mountain House contains a self-serve Café featuring food from fine vendors and homemade specialties. Seating is available on the patios and on the balcony. The Café in the Mountain House has indoor seating, as well. We will happily prepare customized picnics and gift baskets. The little Marketplace Country Store features hiker resupply products ~ local snacks and beverages ~ local arts and crafts ~ gifts ~ toiletries ~ souvenirs ~ books ~ and more!

OLD TOWN PATIO GRILL: Features inn-credible grilled specialties (including slow-cooked brisket) and house-made sides on weekends (weather-permitting) from mid- March through mid-December. Outdoor seating is available on the patios and balcony.

SPECIAL PACKAGES: Special packages can be arranged featuring recreational activities such as outdoor sports and tours to nearby wineries and breweries. The Inn also features educational activities through the American Health & Heritage Adventure

Academy (AHHAA), which is located on the premises. The Academy provides
customized educational packages for individuals and groups with special interests. Courses are taught by local residents who live and work in or near Harpers Ferry, for example National Park Rangers, Appalachian Trail Conservancy staff, Shepherd University professors, and many other talented and gifted people who are eager to share their expertise about health, history, and our American heritage (including music, art, drama, and more) with visitors to Harpers Ferry. Any visitor can savor self instructional activities. See www.ExperienceHarpersFerry.com to learn more about this amazing village.
