Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Idyllic spot to relax!
Rock Spring Retreat is a beautiful spot to get away with family and friends. It is a very easy 90 min drive from DC and we had such a wonderful visit. The house has charming historic details and comfortable modern amenities like large new bathrooms, a big functional kitchen, strong wifi, and classy design. The house slept our big group comfortably and we had a wonderful evenings enjoying the beautiful grounds and watching the sunset. You’ll love it here!

Impeccable!
There are not enough adjectives to describe this gem! We planned a family trip to visit my sister in Shepherdstown and found this beauty on Airbnb…what an unbelievable find! Tom and Walt were amazing hosts with the most impeccable taste…their decorating will leave you in awe and their hospitality was above and beyond with so many special touches from the finest in linens, fully equipped kitchen with cooking spices, wood for the fire pit, speakers throughout the house, access to Roku TV and the list goes on and on. The property is absolutely breathtaking! The worst part of staying was having to leave…we’re already dreaming of when we can return!

Modern comforts in an historic house on a stunning property
Rock Spring really has it all. The house has old world charms, but brand new bathrooms, new kitchen and ample living space. We loved the huge living room, but the study was my favorite room and the sun room was the perfect spot to watch sunrise or the horses in the distance. The property has a beautiful pond, a small hedge maze and a rustic barn and old salt house. The host was incredibly attentive to our questions and had everything perfectly in place for our arrival. Highly recommend Rock Spring Retreat!

Perfect historic getaway in scenic West Virginia
We just finished a perfectly relaxing weekend at Rock Spring with friends. It's not only easily accessible from Washington, DC but also just minutes' drive from hiking, tubing, and shopping in Harpers Ferry. The recently and charmingly restored farm home is a beautiful space with plenty of room for large groups or families. As a baker, I was pleasantly surprised to find a well equipped kitchen with all the basic tools to cook for our group. The grounds are idyllic with plenty of space to relax and dine outside or toast marshmallows around the fire pit next to the garden maze and pond. Also, the owners could have not been more hospitable and responsive. They clearly understand how to make their guests' stay as easy and pleasant as possible. We would highly recommend Rock Spring to any of our family and friends for future trips.

Perfect place!
What a lovely place to spend a weekend or more! I can’t wait to be back. The farmhouse is incredibly renovated while still keeping the personality and beauty of the pre-civil war house. The beds were maybe the most comfortable things I’ve slept on…I may need to find out where they got them. The small touches such as the tote bag were thoughtful. Can’t recommend this place enough. I only hesitate to share because I don’t want it booked every time I need an escape.
