Excellent stay with a surprise!
Feb 21, 2015 by: SailorJosh_C27 from Nottingham, Maryland
My partner and I had a truly terrific stay the night after Valentine's Day this year. When we arrived, the owner informed us that some of the water pipes had frozen (the outside temperature with windchill was around the single digits), meaning that the room we had reserved was unavailable due to lack of water. However, the owner graciously offered us the nicest room in the house, the Generals Quarters, which had been newly converted into a guestroom, for no extra charge. This suite features a gorgeous sitting area with windows looking out onto the field, forests and mountains, A luxury bathroom with soaking tub, shower, and plenty of space, and the room itself had a wood-burning stove that was roaring when we arrived. We had a very restful evening by the fire out in the living room watching a movie, and the owner surprised us with a bowl full of buttered popcorn right as our movie started. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful, particularly the spiced pear with Craisins, and the staff were incredibly friendly, welcoming and funny. Overall, an outstanding stay from a gracious owner on a beautiful property. Thank you so much!

Mark, Matt, and Tina were wonderful. The rooms are well appointed,very comfortable,tastefully decorated,and spacious. We loved the fireplace in our room. The breakfast was enjoyable and though we didn't have dinner the couples that did went out of the dinning room with smiles and said it was delicious.Our only negative comment is we didn't have a chance to say goodbye to Mark when we left. He was busy clearing the driveway from the previous nights' snow. Be sure to ask about purchasing some very good wine before you leave.
Cozy and beautiful setting

We have stayed here several times and always enjoy it. Gorgeous surroundings, nice rooms, friendly staff, delicious breakfast. Secluded and quite location. Close to battlefield, but you don't have to be a Civil War buff to enjoy your stay.
One of the best we have visited.

We spent last weekend at this B&B, and it was everything that it advertised. The rooms were huge; larger than any other B&B we have stayed in the past. The beds were very comfortable, and the private, screened in porch, attached to our room provided a beautiful view of the battlefield and the scenic area beyond. The ground were great for walking. It was far enough out (on a private lane) that you didn't hear the noise of passing cars, but near enough to Boonesboro, and Sharpsburg to be there in just a few minutes. The great room with a fireplace was so comfortable that it felt like home. You didn't have to worry about curling up on one of the leather couches. If you are looking for a place that is so historic you can't touch anything, this is not the place for you. If you want a wonderfully relaxing place with history right outside your room, then this place is a winner.
Beautiful Place to Stay

Beautiful views of the surrounding area and conveniently located to many historical sites. Whether you just want a quick getaway for the weekend or a longer stay for indulging your inner history-buff you can't go wrong. The rooms are beautifully appointed and have great features/views. We felt very comfortable and welcome there and couldn't have had a nicer stay!
