Lovely Place to Stay!
Jun 19, 2013 by: Judy Y from
We recently took a weekend trip to visit the Antietam Battlefield and one of the highlights of our adventure was our night at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. We stayed in what used to be the outdoor kitchen, beautifully renovated and charming, with a sitting porch overlooking the back garden. Joann is a great hostess and a terrific cook. We were traveling with our adult son, and we all loved it.
Awesome historic B & B on the edge on the Antietam battlefield!

We made last minute plans to stay hear a week before our anniversary. They were so accommodating. The Antietam room on the 2nd floor is awesome. You get a huge porch that overlooks the garden. They roast and brew their own coffee! One of the many exciting things at breakfast.
The best B&B experience we've ever had
Jun 07, 2013 by: ProfessorMDR from Lexington, Kentucky
From lively, Civil War-themed décor to lavish, lovingly-made breakfasts, this was the best of the B&Bs we've visited. Joanne & Paul worked hard to make their guests happy and comfortable, but made it seem effortless. Always homemade cookies in the dining room and breakfast recipes from Better Homes and Gardens (or possibly Southern Living). The grounds and garden were at their early-summer best, demurely colorful. There were even garden bunnies who greeted us in their early evening silflay. We will never go anywhere else if we're in the area; it couldn't get any better than this.
Great getaway to a superb B&B

My wife and I stayed at the JR Inn during a weeklong getaway which included DC. It is really a fabulous old home with fascinating early 19th C. and Civil War history behind it. Joanne and Paul were excellent hosts and the breakfasts were delicious (and ample). Although we missed the Memorial Day parade along Main Street on Saturday, we chose to take bicycles following the old canal towpath to Harper's Ferry- what a fun ride! Total distance was almost 27 miles and quite workout through beautiful riverside scenery (a treat for us, being West Texas desert rats). We wholeheartedly recommend the Inn to anyone with an interest in history and wanting to revisit "small-town America".

This was the last stay on our 17 day trip through Virginia, Tennessee and Maryland. This bed and breakfast is lovely and Joanne and Paul are great hosts. We were made to feel so welcome it was a really lovely end to our wonderful trip. Joanne's breakfasts are delicious and the cookies just melt in your mouth. We stayed in the Clara Barton room which was lovely with its separate sitting room. Joanne retells the history of the house in a really interesting way and we loved the story over breakfast. We enjoy a communal breakfast where we always meet interesting people. The DVD in the room about the Antietam battle is a nice touch and gives you a good preview before venturing on to the battlefield itself. Joanne is so helpful with local information, restaurants, places to visit and other things to do. The bed and breakfast is a fantastic place to visit and stay. It's a mark of the welcome that you receive here that you leave feeling as though you have made new friends. We would have no hesitation in recommending a stay here.
