Wonderful visit to Jacob Rohrbach Inn

Very nice visit to the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. Joanne and Paul were wonderful hosts and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. Wonderful breakfast and great conversation. We had the Clara Barton room which was very nice with a comfortable bed. We visited both Antietam and Harper's Ferry. Would recommend this B&B to anyone visiting the area.

My wife and I stayed for three nights. The house is a true testament to the civil war era. The breakfast changes daily and it is outstanding. It is done communal style with all 8 guests sitting at one table. Most of the guests are there to visit the Antietam Battlefield and even if you are not a Civil War buff you will hear some wonderful stories. My wife and I were there to visit Antietam but also to ride the C&O bike canal which you can access a few miles down the rode. Make sure you ask Joann to tell you the history of Jacob Rohrbach. One criticism; coffee is weak but I like strong coffee anyway.
Just as we'd hoped….

Very nice, pleasant visit. Excellent hospitality, relaxed. Inn was clean, and nicely decorated. Comfortable bed, which is key of course. And I was struck by how well organized was the operation, with appropriate confirmations in advance. The list of restaurants they sent us enabled us to make a dinner reservation at a really fine spot in nearby Shepardstown that we coudn;t have done at the last minute.

We stayed at this fabulous B&B for 4 nights in the General's Quarters. This room is their largest and includes a separate sitting area and an oversized bathroom. It is in a separate building behind the main house and has a private entrance. We visited Antietam and Gettysburg battlefields. Joanne and Paul were extremely helpful in helping to plan our days. They have a wealth of knowledge of the areas around Sharpsburg including restaurants, drives, and places of interest. The morning breakfast was beautifully presented, delicious and filling. We highly recommend staying at their Inn.
Want to stay again!

Beautiful Inn, close to Antietam Battlefield. The owner Joanne met us walking into the inn, we arrived a little earlier for check in, she got us all settled into our room, The Thomas Jackson room. We were traveling with our teenage son and Joanne set up an airbed for him to sleep on. The room was beautifully furnished and comfortable, clean and we had our own little back porch area to sit outside. Joanne was very helpful and informative on what was going on in the area, where to eat and how to get there. Unfortunately we didn't stay for the breakfast, wanted to get back on the road to continue our vacation. I do recommend this Inn, it's lovely, I'd like to visit again as a couple or friends. I think it would be a great little getaway.
