From the moment we were greeted and shown to our suite, Chad and Carrie were the most gracious hosts! The view from our suite was spectacular both at night and during the day! The Ledge House was a peaceful oasis surrounded by gardens and the sounds of songbirds! My friends and I were sorry to have to leave!!! We will return to this unique and comfortable home away from home!!!

Beautiful place, comfy bed, huge bathtub to soak in, DELICIOUS breakfast. Fireplace burning when we arrived was delightful. We've been here twice and had a great time on both occasions. The couple is super sweet and even let us borrow their car to go to dinner in the next town over! Watch out because lots of harpers ferry closes down in the winter. Also, the train comes through the town intermittently. We thought it was charming but if you are a light sleeper, may want to choose a different town.

Suite 2 is spacious and clean -- and has a private balcony with a breathtaking view found nowhere else. Perfect for our group of three people. Comfortable sitting area downstairs. Location is very convenient to the historic lower town area -- within easy walking distance. Carrie is a friendly, knowledgeable and gracious hostess, and cooked us a filling breakfast both days we were there. My sons and I really enjoyed our stay.

This property sits on the ledge overlooking Harper's Ferry! The view is breathtaking! The room was very comfortable and we enjoyed the garden tub! Breakfast was delicious! You can walk down to the historical area from the Ledge House if you don't mind a trek through a little spot of woods. Lovely setting, great accommodations and a great little town to visit! We'll be back!

It could be because it was the Holiday weekend, but all we got for breakfast the first day was scrambled eggs and a slice of cheese cake. No toast, no orange juice, no fruit, no spring water. Second day was a good omelet but again no toast, no orange juice, spring water and only a fist full of strawberries. For $145 a night, I expected a lot more. Also there was no housekeeping service. That didn't bother me as much as the food. The room was lovely, the view was fantastic. The lady who made us breakfast was pleasant. But before you go, if you expect a good breakfast from a relatively pricey B&B, make sure you know what's on the menu.

If I had to imagine the perfect B&B, this would be it! The owners were friendly, warm, and welcoming. I loved my spacious, clean, and attractively decorated room. I also liked that this B&B had a more relaxed style and not the overly frilly decor that a lot of B&Bs have. The bed was so comfortable and the bathroom spacious and ultra-clean. The views were outstanding and the location at the top of a hill overlooking the town and the rivers was so peaceful. My room overlooked a koi pond with a fountain and I loved the sound of water at night. I will definitely return here and recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet, peaceful, beautiful place to visit.

Nothing beats a morning cup of coffee on the spacious deck of the Ledge House, which overlooks historic Harper's Ferry, the intersection of the rivers and the railway bridge. The rooms are spacious and well-maintained, the breakfast is delicious, and the owners are friendly and professional. Harper, a friendly tabby cat, presides over this relaxing atmosphere.

We would definitely recommend this place and plan to stay here again. Chad and Carrie are wonderful hosts who made us feel right at home. Chad even built a fire in the fireplace for us when we came back from dinner. We two couples stayed in Suites 2 and 3, very clean, comfortable, and private. Breakfast was delicious. For us bicyclists, it was quite a climb to get there but well worth it. Great views, but bring earplugs to muffle the sounds of the trains, which run throughout the night.

My boyfriend and I just spent a couple of days at Canal House Cottage. Pro: Canal House Cottage could be lovely and private. It was very clean. Con: It is not within walking distance of the downtown and it has a terrible view of the back of a cafe. However, the real problem is that it just did not seem to be well maintained - burned out lights, non-functioning DVD player, no way to find out the password for the internet, no soap in the bathroom, no heat, etc. But what makes this a bad review is the fact that they just would not give us toilet paper. When we arrived, we told the proprietor, Carrie, that there was no toilet paper. She apologized and said she'd send someone right over with some. 5 hours later, we begged the Canal House Cafe for a roll of toilet paper. They apologized and promised to get word to Carrie that we needed more. The next day: still no toilet paper. We spoke to one woman on the phone and left a message on Carrie's voice mail. No one ever even called us back. Some amenities are luxuries - some, like toilet paper, are necessities. There is nothing romantic about saying, "Honey, I need to go into town so I'll have something to wipe with." Maybe we caught them on an off day?
