Pleasant stay

4.2 on November 19, 2014

A charming place to stay. Our room,4,was small but comfy. Bed very comfy! Wallpaper torn in one spot and rust stains around sink drain but after all the house is old. Those things did not affect our stay. Breakfast was wonderful. Imaginative, hot, plentiful and delicious! Can definitely recommend this as a place to stay. One note, breakfast does not start until 8:30. If you are planning a spa visit don't book anything too early.


Wonderful mountain getaway...

Two nights in a peaceful, charming mountain B and B.....walking distance to historic town...nice places to eat...wonderful breakfast at the Inn....short drive to a view that was featured in National Geographic.....not to mention the baths and massages....¿¿


Anniversary Return!!

5 on November 05, 2014

My husband and I came to Highlawn Inn for our honeymoon 13 years ago and returned for our anniversary this weekend. This is a wonderful B&B. It is clean, warm and inviting. Mrs. Sandy and her staff aim to please their guests. They were very friendly, hospitable and always greeted you with a smile. They were very willing to cater to our ever need if asked. The food was outstanding with some items on the menu that we had never had before and they were wonderful. The town is very quaint and friendly filled with history and beautiful victorian homes. The inn is within walking distance of town and local restaurants and shops. It is also within driving distance to Harpers Ferry (our favorite). This is a wonderful place to stay....you will not be disappointed. We definitely will be back!!!!


Nice enough for a weekend

3.6 on October 30, 2014

Great location and clean room. The bed in the attic room we stayed in was not that comfortable.There is a lot of floral wallpaper and cats and that kind of thing so be prepared. Breakfast was disappointing. Its a buffet, and includes frozen fruit, packaged croissants, eggs not cooked to order but just scrambled and on a warming plate, a few homemade baked items that were decent. We contemplated going out to breakfast our second day there but figured the town might not have had anything better to offer so we didn't bother.


1st Year Anniversary

2.8 on October 29, 2014

The Inn is located in the old part of town. My wife loves the Victorian Ambiance and this Bed and Breakfast was just perfect. The Service was good for the value. The room was clean and tidy. The furniture and decorations were right on. The Breakfast was a little skimpy though with very few selections. We had to go out for breakfast after eating at the inn. A great experience but we will not return next year for our 2nd Anniversary....we will be searching for another Bed and Breakfast. Bob Miller

Innkeeper Response
While we applaud Mr. Miller for signing his name to this review we would have preferred the chance to please him while here. We could have fixed this couple several different items had they spoken to us. Failing any other choices to please they would have been given a generous discount.While we have a wide variety of different foods, this is what was on the breakfast buffet during their visit. Sat: OJ,sliced slab bacon,Scrambled Eggs,Sherried Sweet Potatoes, Spaghetti Squash with tomatoes and fresh Basil, Cranberry-Orange Scones, Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake, assorted fruit bowl and Croissants with assorted jams and jellies. Sun: Cranberry-Raspberry Juice,Assorted fruit bowl, Country Sausage, Scrambled Eggs, Herbed Potatoes with sauteed Leeks, Broiled Tomatoes with Hot Pepper Jelly and herbs, Marble Cake with Lemon Glaze, Apple Walnut Crumb Cake, Croissants and assorted jams and jellies.


Nice place, but could use some upgrades.

3.2 on October 22, 2014

FIrst be warned, the B&B is on a VERY steep hill. Also the gravel in the driveway is very loose. Over all a very nice place. My one complaint is that when we tried to use the Jacuzzi tube (which i beieve we paid a premium for) there was no hot water. We heard water running elsewhere when we came in and can only assume that the waterheater is shared between all the rooms. So I would not recommend paying for any room in the main house at least, that was advertised as having a Jacuzzi tub. I just dont think it's worth the extra expense.

Innkeeper Response
Responding to nice place ..... Our location on a steep hill affords us fabulous views of Warm Springs Ridge in the distance and minimal traffic noise from downtown.We were not told by this couple of a hot water problem, we have 3 50 gallon hot water heaters and have had only one occurrence over 30 years and that was solved quickly by our handyman who replaced a burnt element in one of the water heaters, we keep spare parts on hand for such problems. We just wish this couple would have told us of a problem and given us a chance to remedy the situation.


Relaxing getaway

4.8 on October 13, 2014

We stayed 2 nights for my birthday & had a great time. Sandy Kauffman is the best hostess. Makes everything so comfortable & welcoming. Very helpful with suggestions for dinner. The breakfasts are wonderful!


Five Stars all around!

This was exactly the image I had for a bed and breakfast from the staff and its wonderful hostess to the decor. Breakfast was a culinary delight with all the trimmings. The inn feels private even though it is downtown Berkeley Springs with it's lovely garden and spacious front porch. To say stately and gracious is an understatement. B. Greer


Great Honeymoon spot

4.2 on September 29, 2014

This was a second revisit to our honeymoon overnight of 25 years ago. We found the inn as quaint as before. This, no brand new hotel with shining fixtures, but it was a delightful departure from the normal hotel stay.


Best B&B

5 on September 04, 2014

I have stayed at several B&B's and this one is the BEST I've ever stayed at!! It was so quaint and the beautifully decorated! The breakfast was AMAZING!! It is a gem and so charming. Would recommend and would stay again! Thank you!!
