A gem in Harper's Ferry

5 on November 11, 2012

I only hesitate to recommend the Laurel Lodge because I don't want too many people to find out about it. The house is special and unique. The views are breathtaking. Ed and Chris truely make you feel like valued guests in their home. The lodge is spotless and tastefully decorated. The only problem with rating the food you're served for breakfast is that there are not nearly enough stars. We can't wait to go again. Sue and Garry

Our third stay.

Always a high point of our vacations---warm hospitality, great food and one of the most peaceful and beautiful views you'll find anywhere.

It lived up to its reputation

My fiance, Scott, and I stayed at Laurel Lodge last weekend. My son, Keith, and his wife, Caitlin, spent the weekend there as well, so that we all could celebrate their 2nd wedding anniversary together. I had read 58 five star reviews prior to booking our rooms and the skeptic in me could not believe that every single person gave it such a glowing review. It sounded too good to be true. In fact, we all agreed after our stay that it was all of that and more. The breakfasts, prepared by Ed with loving care with locally sourced ingredients were outstanding, the view of the forest from the back porch was spectacular, the fall colors of the leaves were gorgeous, and Chris was the perfect host. He pays attention to every detail to insure that every guest feels welcome and comfortable. The extra touches, like the delicious homemade cookies that were always available with unlimited coffee and tea were the icing on the cake. In addition, Harper's Ferry is a wonderful weekend getaway with much to offer: history, nature, shopping. It truly has something for everyone. We had such a wonderful time that our family plans to come back in the future. We even talked about making it an annual event. We have all stayed in other b & b's in the past and this one far surpasses any of the others in so many ways. I highly recommend Laurel Lodge. It will be well worth your time to travel there and we look forward to returning in the future.

We should have planned to stay longer

We stayed only one night at Laurel Lodge while attended the five plays at the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown WV. Chris was an excellent host. He gave us a tour of the house, inviting us to enjoy the porch overlooking the Potomac River or make ourselves comfortable in the living or dining rooms. Complementary water, tea, and coffee all day with cookie often available. Our room. Cedar View, provided a beautiful view of the river and hills beyond, it was clean and tasteful with a comfortable queen bed and lovely down pillows. Breakfast was generous and delicious. We may book again to enjoy hiking and the river before next July - but certainly then.

We have stayed at Laurel Lodge a number of times now. We come back for the friendly people (Chris and Ed) and the fabulous breakfasts. We highly recommend it to anyone looking for a B&B in Harpers Ferry.

True 5 star service!

Before booking i was a bit skeptical of all the 5 star reviews, but two nights and breakfasts made me a believer!

A great place to stay in Harpers Ferry

A fantastic place to stay. Chris was very friendly and gave us a full history of the house. Our room was spotless and beyond comfy with an unbelievable view out the back of the house. Breakfast to say the least...totally Y-U-M-M-Y. It is clear how much work and effort Chris and Ed have put in to this place. I highly recommend that if you see yourself traveling to Harpers Ferry, to consider staying at Laurel Lodge. You will love your stay!

It was truly a pleasure to stay at Laurel Lodge. Our room with private bath faced the gorge. The bathrooms were clean, the linens fresh, and the towels fluffy. Breakfast far exceeded our expectations.
