Must Love Trains!!!

Amtrak, MARC and MANY CSX trains travel thru Harpers Ferry.

They do this at all hours of the day and night. While some may find the train noise disturbing, many find it relaxing and a joy.

We're hoping our guests are the latter.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Steve Sherry and Greg Dean That's us. 15 yrs partnered and recently tied the knot (thank you WV) We took pride in and Loved our little home for the last 15 yrs. 3 arduous years of restoration later and we're ready to share it with the world. We're lucky to live right next door in the Home we're NOW working to restore. While Steve commutes to work in Bethesda each day, Dean stays home doing K9 rescue. Our weekends are filled with friends and family often visiting. Recently we hosted the wedding of our oldest daughter.... ahh the memories. Pretty easy going and reasonable we'll strive to make your stay as wonderful as the last decade has been for us.

Why the Owner Chose Harpers Ferry, WV, USA:
Just like i believe there's someone for everyone, I also believe there's a place for everyone. Steve and Dean feel this village with it's Circa 1840 atmosphere is more than just home for them. In 2001, we met the most wonderful resident of Harpers Ferry, and then she sold us her home. 15 yrs later, we're still best friends with her.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Quaint and charming are two overused words, but they really do describe the B n B.
