Great location to the battlefield and to a number of excellent restaurants. Hosts were great. Really enjoyed our breakfast "history lessons" about the battlefield, the inn, and the surrounding town. Had a great time.

We arrived around 5:30, and were asked whether we planned to visit the Antietam battlefield. When we said, unfortunately we are getting here so late that it just isn't possible. She told us that while the visitor's center was closed, the park would be open until dark and offered to lend us a CD of an audio guide to the battlefield. While we had to rush a bit, we were able to see much of the sites and get a good feel for what happened there and the significance. She also told us that Shepherdstown, West Virginia, just across the Potomac, was W.Va.'s oldest town and had a number of nice restaurants. So right after our drive through the park, we drove there to have dinner. A quick stroll down old bricked sidewalks, and a number of good choices. The House itself has a lot of character, the accomodations were very comfortable, and the breakfast was great. The guidance that we got though, is what made us feel as if we had visited the area rather than just passed through.

Room Tip: Our room was great, next to the door to the balcony, where it would have been nice to sit and relax if we had had time

We stayed here a night while visiting Antietam and just prior to a long bike ride back to DC on the C&O Canal Trail, and had a wonderful time in this historic and friendly inn. The next morning we awoke to a superb and hearty breakfast to start the journey home.

The inn is a charming old house, right in town for easy walking to restuarant and ice cream shop, and just a few minutes' drive from the battlefield. Rooms set up as suites with sitting areas, lots of space for relaxing. Well furnished with everything one needs from hair dryer to flashlight and Kleenex by the bed, along with good TV and DVD, complimentary bottles of water. Joann is very friendly hostess and excellent cook. Delicious plentiful breakfast -- crumbcake outstanding. She is also knowledgeable about history of the house and the area. A good experience all in all. Would go back.

We enjoyed our room at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. It was spacious, clean, well appointed and we slept quite well. Since we stayed two nights, we had a chance to rate breakfast based on more than one experience. Both the soufflé and the quiche were served cold, or room temperature at best. Everything else, juice, coffee, breads and fruit were OK. I'd skip the cold stuff.

The Inn's website led us to a tour guide for Antietam battlefield. Bob is a gem who tailors his approach to his clients. Very worthwhile!

Your review says it is for a stay in May, but actually it was a weekend in April that you arrived in the same car with Bob H (next review) . We are sorry you didn't enjoy the entree's, however you said nothing at the time, so how could we fix it?
