Sweet & Darling Place

4.6 on June 23, 2016

Met family for a weekend and reserved two rooms: Lovers Loft & The Garden in "Aunt Pearls" adjacent lot from the main house. Lovers Loft may not work for those over 6ft as it has slanted roofing in areas. The Garden was roomy and a little larger than the Loft. Breakfasts included for two and included a combination of eggs, traditional breakfast meat options, and cut fruits. There was also coffe cake-type options, and one or two other items that changed, such as grits/corn dish and baked tomatoes and asparagus, seasonal type of options. No lunch of dinner available at this location. Rooms and breakfast settings all very Victorian.


Lovely spot for a weekend

4.2 on June 20, 2016

We stayed in the back room with the side porch. A little noisy in the evening because it backs onto the kitchen. But that is a small complaint for what was a lovely stay. Walking distance to the springs themselves and downtown. Easy access for getting elsewhere. Very friendly host and fabulous breakfast. We booked the Friday night of Memorial Day weekend because it was the only night she had available. So glad we could get in (and she was willing to take a one-night stay with such a busy weekend coming up!). We'll be back - for longer next time.


A charming home

5 on June 15, 2016

My mother and I stayed recently for the weekend. The home was exceptionally clean, everyone was very pleasant. The towels and sheets were nice and they had nice toiletries in the bathroom. We had the large front bedroom with a king bed and a day bed in the main house and the room was very spacious. The water temperature and pressure were good. Breakfast was good with a wide variety. I have pretty basic tastes so I had eggs, meat and a croissant both days but they also had fruits, breakfast veggies, cakes and other assorted goodies that my mother enjoyed. Neither my mother nor I cared for the coffee which was...not exactly flavored, but flavory sweet roasted or something. We like more plain coffee. The only thing we would have liked to have had that wasn't available was an ice bucket for the room and access to ice, however there was a water cooler in the parlor so that was nice. All in all a pleasant stay and we would stay again.


Awesome Experience

We go every year for our Anniversary. Sandi makes the best breakfast. Wish she would have a recipe book. They are all so nice there. You feel like it is your home.


Romantic first get away

4.0 on May 25, 2016

My boyfriend and I booked the spring fling and received 2 nights lodging, 2 breakfasts, wine and cheese upon arrival, $100 gift certificate for A local restaurant and $100 goofy certificate for a local spa, all for $500 The room had its own whirl pool tub and a claw foot tub. It was so beautiful and perfect. The food voucher was good for alcohol and enough for a bottle of champagne and a surf and turf. Our first weekend away was one to remember because of Highlawn :)


Innkeeper nice, but rooms very dated, beds hard

3.0 on May 04, 2016

We stayed here for a quick get away. Room was large, whirpool tub nice. The beds were very hard and the breakfast was basic, not gourmet. Staff were nice and welcoming.


Very Relaxing and Warm Stay

4.8 on April 24, 2016

My husband and I celebrated our 23rd anniversary and we planned a last minute getaway using the Spring Fling Special. The Inn was very warm, clean and the Innkeeper Sandy was friendly and accommodating of our last minute request. We were unable to stay the two nights but we thoroughly enjoyed the time spent. The breakfast was plentiful and delicious. I wish we could have experienced the second morning breakfast but we had to leave too early. I would definitely stay again given the right package. The Spring Fling Special allowed for a wonderful spa experience and dinner at Tari's. Oh and the cats welcomed us as soon as we arrived and purred to our touch. It was great!


A cat lovers B & B

4.0 on April 23, 2016

We had a wonderful nights stay Blackie the cat slept with us we are cat people and loved being there. The hilltop view of Berkeley Springs was awesome. Sandy's breakfast was one of the best that I ever had at a B&B. Loved the shops and restuarants in the village. Take the drive up hill to castle and look out to see 3 states. Would love to go back in the fall. Spring was beautiful also.


Beautiful B&B with Furry Friends!

4.6 on April 18, 2016

I thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast with the cats! And the cats greeted me when I came in, too, which was lovely. The room was so beautifully decorated and cozy! And the breakfast was unsurpassed - the presentation was exquisite and the flavor equally so.


Idyllic Victorian Getaway!

4.8 on April 18, 2016

Spent two nights at the Highlawn and enjoyed it immensely! From the Victorian details to the sumptous breakfast I loved it all. I also was pleased at the location, as it was within walking distance of downtown. Will definitely visit again.
