This unique historic (circa 1840) inn 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.

We choose The Towns Inn as a meeting place to pick up kids and have a mini trip with Grandparents. Our stay was delightful. The Inn is so charming, the third floor room exceeded our expectations. Food was wonderful-- home cooked. Inn is centrally located in town. Will definitely come back, hopefully with our bikes!

I have stayed here twice so far. The rooms are small, but clean, and the staff is very helpful. The best part about it, however, is its amazing location just a short walk from the train station with a great view of the town and landscape beyond right from the front porch.

Only for folks who love historic buildings! Lush bathrobes make the trip down the hall to your private bath a cake walk.

Get off the Applalacian Trail on C&O bike trail. The Town's Inn is central to everything and within budget.

We stayed in the Town's Inn for 4 nights in the first week in July. The buildings looked wonderful and the room was better than we expected. The weather was very hot and the window unit did a great job. A bit difficult to sleep considering the thin walls and the nearby train station, but it was a wonderful spot for visiting the town of Harper's Ferry. Karan is such a nice woman and we felt very welcome. We only ate breakfast at the Inn's restaurant which was great the first day but not entirely great the second day. It's a nice little spot with spectacular views!

After almost 4 decades of serving as a professor of English for Speakers of Other Languages and professional work in law and real estate, I became an innkeeper to serve my family (5 grandchildren!), friends, and other visitors to Harpers Ferry, a place that is truly a national treasure.
