Trip Advisor Great 2 Day Trip
Oct 18, 2014 by: Dave D from Butler, Pennsylvania
my wife & I had a great stay. Great rooms that were very clean. The breakfasts were excellent. Enjoyed the conversations with guests after breakfasts. Joanne & Paul were very knowledgeable and helpful with anything we needed. We would go back again if in the area & would recommend this place very highly.

Trip Advisor Just as excellent as our first stay seven years ago!

This was our second visit to the Jacob Rohrbach Inn and it as very bit as good as it was when we visited seven years. The rooms are big and have all sorts of interesting artefacts. Breakfast is fantastic with home made cakes, bread, preserves and even coffee made from beans roasted at the inn. Joanne and Paul are not only excellent hosts they are also very knowledgable about the area and the American Civil War.. We stayed in the Antietam room which is upstairs. Although some may feel it is pricey, it is worth every penny/cent.

Trip Advisor A Great Surprise for a Last Minute Stay
Oct 03, 2014 by: Michelle D from Chesapeake, Virginia, United States
What a wonderful place to stay! This was a last minute reservation, but so worth the stay! Being a bed and breakfast owner myself, I tend to look closer than most. This place was just want I hoped for. Close to my point of interest (Antietam), wonderful hostess and host (Joann and Paul) and an amazing historic home (1802). I got the pleasure in staying in the 1820 Summer Kitchen. It was comfortable and wonderful having my own private place in the house. I arrived later in the evening, but Joann spent the time taking me from room to room, showing me this wonderful house. I couldn't help but wonder at who might have walked through these halls. With Antietam just a few short miles from this Sharpsburg home, I am sure the Civil War touched this house as it did those in Gettysburg. Breakfast was amazing! Pumpkin Cream Roll, Omelet, and Home-Made Bread with Home-Made Grape Jelly and Earl Grey. Since I was the first in for breakfast, Joann and I compared notes and talked about her 16 years in business! Paul shared their many artifacts that have been uncovered on the property. A quick walk about and off I went to my point of interest. It was a delight coming to this home and I would highly recommend a stay.

Trip Advisor Great B & B

We stayed at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn for the first time this past weekend at the recommendation of a friend. We wanted something close to the Antietam Battlefield. The owners, JoAnn and Paul are wonderful hosts. We stayed in the Thomas Jackson room which we chose due to it being on the first floor. The room was very spacious, comfortable, clean and nicely decorated, including period antiques. There are plenty of area related magazines to read and some DVD's in the room as well. The bathroom was clean and well supplied with all the essentials. There was a shower stall rather than a tub which we didn't mind at all. You can sit outside on the front porch for morning coffee or on the rear patio overseeing the backyard garden area as well. The breakfast each morning was delicious with fresh pastries, jams and jellies, fruits, bread, sausage, eggs, waffles, juices, coffee and tea served. Paul and Joann have a great deal of knowledge of the surrounding areas history as well as their home which dates back to the very early 1800's. We wouldn't hesitate to stay with them again and will certainly do so on our next visit to the area.

Trip Advisor Fall stay
Sep 27, 2014 by: Fred L from Saint Paul, Minnesota
Together with our good friends, we stayed at the Rohrbach Inn this September. It was a wonderful experience and we all enjoyed the hospitality, the well organized and stocked room (info, free DVD's etc.) and the very tasty breakfast, which was accompanied by a short history up-date on the Inn and the area. Also had an excellent recommendation for a dinner out in Sharpstown at the 'Press Room', which was well above average at reasonable prices. We'd recommend the Jacob Rohrbach to any of our friends and relatives.
