“A very relaxing stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 May 2014

When I wanted a couple of days away I looked into reasonably priced accommodations, I stumbled upon the canal house cottage online and was surprised at the price, considering it was essentially a home away from home. My experience has been wonderful!! It's a quiet private location, with an amazing restaurant right out front! The canal house staff are very kind and the food is amazing! Having a full kitchen at my disposal was also convenient for the times I just wanted to stay in. I recommend the cottage for a quiet gateway that's close to Harper's Ferry and other historic sites!

We had the pleasure of staying here while we were visiting Harpers Ferry. The owners and their family were just delightful. The breakfast was outstanding and the view was spectacular. Though the place needs a little TLC it was comfortable and appointed well. Bring your earplugs though, anywhere in Harpers Ferry you'll hear the trains constantly.

Room Tip: Suite 2 has the best view.

We just returned from a couple of nights at the Ledge House.The house itself is not the most elegant place in which we have stayed- BUT...the experience we enjoyed in staying at this B & B was one of the best (and we have been to dozens of b and b's). Carrie, the hostess, is a flexible, relaxed host, who makes you feel like you are visiting extended family members. You come and you go as you pleased...one guest even cooked herself dinner in the kitchen! You can walk to Lower Harper's Ferry, Bolivar Heights, Virginius Island, the C & O Canal, or hike beautiful (but a little strenuous) Maryland Heights! Stay inside and enjoy the beautiful view from the breakfast table or outside on the deck! You can come and watch trains go by, take a picture of the sunrise, or look for the hikers on the cliffs of Maryland Heights (or take the hike yourself)! The confluence of the Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers is one of the most breathtaking vistas I have ever seen (as noted by Thomas Jefferson!).
We delighted in eating tasty breakfasts while drinking in the lovely locale; you can see both Virginia and Maryland from the Ledge (in West Virginia). The household chickens will delight you with their child-like antics or picnic on the deck for a relaxing rest after an exhilarating hike!

Within 45 minutes, you can enjoy day trips to Boonsboro (the 1st Washington Monument), quaint Shepherdstown (the 1st established town- eat at the Blue Moon Cafe where the stream runs through to the Potomac!), and Antietam Battlefield (Bolivar Heights Battlesfield is within 10 min.). I wish we had 1 more day to enjoy a slower pace, but we did it all! Drive through all 3 states in 2 minutes or take a few days to enjoy the beauty of God's creation.

Room Tip: We stayed in Suite 3, which has the same beautiful view of the trains and confluence of the Shenando...

My husband and I stayed in suite 1 on a Sunday and Monday nights. The house is charming and provides ample indoor and outdoor space for relaxing. The breakfasts were great. It was an easy walk to the trails, which is the main thing I wanted to do/see on the trip. If you are looking for a quick and very relaxing getaway, the Ledge House is the place to go.

Room Tip: If you want a private entrance, go with suite 1.

My boyfriend and I wanted to get away for a few days since I am a teacher and my spring break just started; he, unfortunately, doesn't get a spring break anymore. We found the Ledge House B&B online and from the moment we got there, fell in love. Carrie, the owner, is so inviting and an excellent cook. We had the smallest room in the house, but it was still roomy and had an amazing view of the river and mountains. It was great to be a quick walk from the town as well as part of the Appalachian Trail. The Ledge House is definitely a must stay in Harpers Ferry.

Room Tip: Smallest room is quite cozy, but the other two rooms have en suites which is nice.

We stayed for a Friday and Saturday night and couldn't have had a better time. The area is quaint and the Ledge House is charming. We were given delicious, home-made breakfasts in the morning and the owner provided great activity and destination recommendations. View was awesome in the mornings!
