Step back in time at The Jackson Rose Bed and Breakfast, an 18th Century residence listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Escape the hassles of everyday modern life amid the quiet comforts of this restored Federal-style home, in the very rooms that the Lee family once owned and that Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson chose as his temporary headquarters during the Civil War. From this home in 1861, Jackson wrote pleasingly to his wife of a fragrant rose climbing to his second story room - thereafter referred to as the "Jackson Rose" - and an “elegant mansion” and “nice, green yard.” Guest rooms include queen-size beds and private baths; the house features original heart of pine floors, gas fireplaces, high ceilings, front parlor and porch, rose and herb gardens. Our full morning meal, made with local fresh eggs and garden herbs, along with our homemade jams, breakfast breads, fresh fruit and Columbian coffee, will start your day off right.

My husband and I spent four nights at the Jackson Rose over the Fourth of July. Deb and Phil were gracious and welcoming - but gave us our space to come and go and do as we pleased. It was refreshing to return from our touring each day to a cool and comfortable room. Deb's breakfasts were absolutely delicious - and we enjoyed something different every morning. Much of what she served included fruit from their own yard and ingredients from local farms. The last afternoon we were there, we came back from a long, difficult hike to fresh baked molasses cookies and home made lemonade. We highly recommend the Jackson Rose and will be back to enjoy it again!

We are a retired career military couple who travel extensively and prefer to lodge in B & Bs. As history buffs--teacher and writer--to spend the night in the very room where Stonewall Jackson penned letters to his wife meant stepping back in time. The on-site hosts, Deborah and Phillip, made our brief stay in Harper's Ferry memorable as well. Without hesitation we recommend the Jackson Rose. Texas Travelers

Lovely home.Warm welcome from perfect hosts. There were lots of reading materials about the home and the area which is steeped in history dating back to George Washington. Breakfast was delicious and I would recommend this B & B to all! 12/28/11

The Jackson Rose was first class! The room was beautiful and amazingly kept. The service was superb and we couldn't say enough about the breakfasts! They were outstanding!! This was definitely worth every penny. We would recommend this B&B to anyone. We were 125% satisfied and can't wait to go back.

If you are going to Harpers Ferry for a historic tour, this is the place to stay. Absolutely gorgeouse decor. The food was excellent and the extra little bits of hospitality like the lemonad and cookies sin the afternoon and the cd they offered to lend us on our trip to Antietam just added to the overall experience. Wonderful hosts. Good location and beautiful rooms.

We enjoyed the Jackson Rose, where Stonewall Jackson spent time during the Civil war. A lot of history there and in Harper's Ferry.
