Guest Review

Lisa says: “The private bedroom and bathroom were beautiful and spotless. The view of garden from the bedroom window is gorgeous. The room also had many books and guides for attractions and hiking around Harpers Ferry. When I woke up in the morning the dining room table was fully set for breakfast with toast, bagel, many varieties of cereal, yogurt and fruit. Coffee was made and everything I could have wanted for breakfast was at my fingertips. I have to say, Curt made some of the best coffee I’ve ever had. I had coffee on the lovely screened in front porch with Chonga, the cat.”
