About

Antietam Overlook Farm is a 19th century-style farmhouse on ninety-five acres atop the Blue Ridge range overlooking the Antietam National Battlefield and historic Sharpsburg, MD. The view is extraordinary with rolling mountains falling away into nearby Virginia, West Virginia, and Pennsylvania. The farmhouse offers a special ambiance featuring rustic wood finishes, stone fireplaces, French lace curtains, and antiques. All of our spacious suites include fireplaces, plush Queen sized beds, and private bathrooms. All but one of the suites offer private screened porches and sitting tubs located in the bedrooms. Our live-in Owner/Chef-Mark, prepares a three course gourmet breakfast for 9am every morning, and guests are encouraged to linger and socialize.

Best B&B we have stayed in!

4.2 on November 02, 2014

We spent last weekend at this B&B, and it was everything that it advertised. The rooms were huge; larger than any other B&B we have stayed in the past. The beds were very comfortable, and the private, screened in porch, attached to our room provided a beautiful view of the battlefield and the scenic area beyond. The ground were great for walking. It was far enough out (on a private lane) that you didn't hear the noise of passing cars, but near enough to Boonesboro, and Sharpsburg to be there in just a few minutes. The great room with a fireplace was so comfortable that it felt like home. You didn't have to worry about curling up on one of the leather couches. If you are looking for a place that is so historic you can't touch anything, this is not the place for you. If you want a wonderfully relaxing place with history right outside your room, then this place is a winner.


Excellent Getaway

4.6 on October 08, 2014

Antietam Overlook Farm provided a perfect weekend getaway. We were able to have the perfect balance of activity and relaxation. The battlefield offers plenty of opportunities for educational exploration and Antietam Overlook Farm was the perfect hideaway of relaxation.


Wonderful Stay!

5 on October 01, 2014

We stayed at this lovely location 19 - 21 Sept. They were exceptionally accommodating in every regard. We decided at the last minute to visit Antietam and departed from home not sure what our loading arrangements would be for the weekend. We called at 6:30 p.m. on our way up from VA, and Molly graciously booked a room for us that evening and through the weekend, (This would have been impossible at other B&Bs we have visited.) Despite our late booking, we still found fresh flowers greeting us on our arrival. The facility is well-furnished, warm, and inviting. The view from the top of the mountain is simply beautiful, and the staff could not have been more pleasant and engaging. I must also comment on the food. Molly's cooking is, in a word, divine! Three-course breakfasts were served every morning, inclusive of homemade bread and jams/jellies. Thankfully, they have a little "store" from which you may purchase some of these delicacies. I purchased a complete set for myself and some for my family, as well. We are enjoying them still. This is genuinely a wonderful place to stay and will absolutely be our choice on our next visit to the area.


Top Experience

4.8 on September 14, 2014

The private acres surrounding the inn are fantastic with some excellent views of the Antietam Battlefield. The wild life abounds including deer, wild turkeys, a wonderful mix of birds tempted to come close to the inn with a series of feeders, as well as domestic ducks and chickens. The breakfast included dessert!


In the Hills

3.0 on September 04, 2014

I give this B&B an OK, It is clean and neat, but definitely not a culinary destination.. The room was quite comfortable, but the rough-sawn cedar boards on the walls and ceiling were just not well done, which gave the room a sloppy appearance. It does sit nicely on a mountain top, over-looking the battlefield, but the grounds were not well kept.

Innkeeper Response
We realize that not everyone sees the beauty in natural wood or in home-cooked hearty meals, but the vast majority of our guests do. We prepare all home cooked meals from scratch, just like Grandma used to – down to home baked breads, cookies and desserts. Our inn is made with rough sawn hard and soft woods. They are not perfect, like wood paneling, but do change size and color as they age. The grounds are mowed and edges trimmed weekly, the flowers are watered a few times a week and the flower beds are weeded. With rain during the week, the grass grows faster but the grounds are maintained.


Lovely Inn

4.2 on August 27, 2014

Stayed only one night. The Inn sits on a ridge and has lovely views. We had a nice screened in porch which allowed us to sit out in the evening for our cocktails. We did have to drive a ways for dinner. We got something to go and brought it back to the room to enjoy on the porch as well. The room is very spacious, clean and comfortable. Very happy with our decision to stay at Antietam Overlook.


Loved it!!!

Beautiful view and gracious hosts!!!


Wonderful Civil War adventure

4.4 on July 20, 2014

My husband and I went to Antietam and Harpers Ferry for a Civil War weekend...hired a guide to take us around and had a great time. Our stay at the Overlook was just great! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We watched the sunset on the screened-in porch with a glass of wine from the guests' refrigerator. Just delightful. Up on that ridge, seemed as tho we had escaped civilization, but it was just a short distance to the Antietam Visitors' Center, and Harper Ferry. The three course breakfast was really special! The best part was the blueberry crisp with icecream!! We didnt even get hungry for lunch! Thanks


Too short!
