A hauntingly good time

A very nice room with a great view from the balcony looking into the yard. Kept very well and clean. Given great advice about food around town and the history about the inn. Inn keepers were delightful, and breakfast was delicious.
Terrific Weekend Getaway!!!

Thank you for the great stay! Both Mary Ann and myself could not have imagined a more perfect weekend than what we experienced at Jacob-Rohrbach Inn. Everything was PERFECT!!! From the excellent accommodations, the incredible breakfasts, your wonderful hospitality to meeting new friends in our fellow guests, our first weekend away as a couple is a memory we will treasure for a lifetime! The questions is not will we be back, but when and how many more times??!!!
A place worth visiting

This historic inn is run by a very nice couple named Joanne and Paul. The building is situated on the main highway, and is about a 10-minute drive from Shepherdstown, WV (handy, since all of the restaurants and shops are located there). We didn’t stay in the main building – we reserved the private cottage which sits in the backyard, beside of the main building. It’s about the size of a very large apartment and has been renovated with a good-sized addition onto the original historic ‘kitchen’ building. It now has a roomy modern bedroom, bathroom, and small pantry area with mini-fridge and countertop. The cottage is comfortable and convenient to stay in, just a short walk to the main building where breakfast is served. Lovely landscaping and gardens complete the relaxing backyard. The cottage also boasts French doors leading to a sitting porch with rocking chairs. The resident cat, who has one non-functioning leg , likes to jump onto your lap. Joanne is quite friendly and loves to keep everyone engaged in lively conversation as she serves breakfast. The food is quite good and presented in an attractive way – fresh fruit, French toast, hot cereal, eggs, coffee, tea and so on, depending on dietary needs. Keep in mind that there are only a few downsides: (1) the air conditioning unit for the cottage is extremely loud and woke us up several times when we thought there was a heavy rainstorm happening, (2) the cottage is near the guest gravel parking lot and the side street, which happens to be near a biker bar, so if you’re a light sleeper, keep that in mind. We enjoyed this inn for the food and the convenient location to Shepherdstown, WV. Highly-recommended.
Great 2 Day Trip

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.
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.
