Very nice, very historic.

The inkeeper, Joanne, was very warm and inviting. She sat at the table while we ate the wonderful breakfasts she had prepared for us and told us of the history of the Inn and how it figured in the Battle of Antietam. This is the one, most important thing about staying at the right B&B - getting to chat with the Innkeeper at a personal level. This isn't anything you can get at a hotel.
Beyond the call of duty

My partner and I came to the area for the JFK 50-miler. We were in just for one night. Joanne greeted us at the door when we arrived. We stayed in the guest house, and it was perfect--wonderful historical charm blended with modern conveniences. The week before we arrived, Joanne sent us a list of local restaurants. The one we selected (Domestic in Shephardstown, WV) was excellent. When we told Joanne how early we had to leave the next morning, so offered to prepare a bag of food we could take with us. That bag of delicious food made our day!! We are very much hoping to return for a longer and more leisurely stay very soon.

This was our 1st B&B. It was recommended to us by our daughter who had stayed there last year. We stayed in the General's Quarters. We felt so at home there It was a lodging by itself. Very pleasant and comfortable. The breakfast each morning was delicious. Fresh fruit, juice, home made baked goods along with anything from waffles, french toast, scrambled eggs, Apple strudel was out of this world. We enjoyed talking with Joanne each morning covering various topics. Joanne also supplied us with travel information to where we intended to go each day, providing maps and other travel materials. In our lodging Joanne had a book of various places to have lunch and dinner. which was a great help being strange to the area. I highly recommend staying here. Joanne was a great hostess along with us enjoying her company during breakfast. A. truly hard worker who strives to make her guests most comfortable.

My husband, granddaughter and I stayed at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn over Veteran's Day week-end. The beds were very comfortable and we slept like logs (and we both have trouble sleeping, especially away from home). Joanne made a delicious breakfast both days we were there. She also gave a wonderful talk on the history of the Inn, and we all hung on every word! My granddaughter (14) said she wished all her teachers were as good as Joanne as it would make learning so much easier. Joanne made sure all the guests were introduced to each other and we had a wonderful time talking together, sharing our plans for the day and relaying our experiences the next morning. We also appreciated Joanne for arranging a private tour of the battlefield. Our guide (Bob Murphy) was friendly, humorous, and very knowledgeable. His guided tour will help us in our goal of turning our granddaughter into a history buff! Our stay was memorable and we look forward to going again!
Just what the doctor ordered!

My sister accompanied me on a memory trip in honor of my 50th Wedding Anniversary, The Jacob Rohrbach Inn is in the area that my late husband and I often visited. The stay at the Inn was a perfect getway and the inkeepers, Joanne and Paul, helped to make it so. I so enjoyed the delicious breakfasts seated with a group of ten people in a family-like setting. We stayed in the General's Quarters, a charming comfortable cottage. I am already considering the chance to return again in the spring.
