The area around Harpers Ferry is uniquely rich in culture, history, scenery, and recreational opportunities.  From kayaking the Shenandoah and biking the C&O Canal Towpath, to retracing the footsteps of John Brown and the campaigns of Jackson, Sheridan, and Early, to square dancing in Shepherdstown and horse racing in Charles Town, the area offers the visitor an incredible mix of things to do. Relax at our modern Bed & Breakfast while you enjoy all that this historic and scenic area has to offer.
