We stayed at the Towns Inn for Memorial Day weekend and although the staff and accomodations were nice, the inn was quite noisy at night. There was a very loud train that ran several times at night and kept us up. Also the Inn is on the main street in Harpers Ferry. Also the bed was poor quality and was on a decline so you felt like you were falling over all night.
The price was a little high for what you get (no breakfast is included, and the ONLY restaurant that is open in the morning was very overpriced for the value...a side of bacon was 5 dollars!)
Staff was very nice and helpful and it was one of the only b&bs in the area that let you bring a child.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- ***Rates starting at $120*** This family-friendly historic Inn (circa 1840) is located in the center of the Harpers Ferry living history village situated at the confluence of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, just steps from the C&O Canal Towpath and Appalachian Trail, as well as the storybook train station served by Amtrak and MARC trains. Open from 6 a.M. - 10 P.M. Every day of the year, the restaurant on the first level of the Inn offers indoor and patio dining featuring popular cuisine, including homemade specialties and healthy options. Also on the first floor is a Sundry / Snack / Supply Shoppe which has been described as a "high-end convenience store, a mini-health food store, and an old-fashioned country store with local products." The second floor consists of two bedrooms with beautiful slate-tile private bathrooms. A parlor containing a treasure of books, toys, and games is situated on the third floor, along with another bedroom. Free WiFi is available. Step outside and enjoy river views, river sports, hiking, bicycling, museums, shopping, and more in this quaint town that is adjacent to the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park and surrounded by other national parks, farms, and Civil War battlegrounds. Although located only 60 miles from DC, the Inn is "a world away" from life in modern urban and suburban cities. We invite you to travel "over the river and through the woods to Grandmother's house" for relaxation, recreation, and retreat. ... more less
