Destination guide

Explore history from a Harpers Ferry cabin rental

West Virginia cabins in the historic town of Harpers Ferry offer a nostalgic escape. Known for the National Historical Park that documents the history of the small town, you can explore an array of Civil War heritage sites like the John Brown Wax Museum and the site of the Niagara Movement.

Things to do

History comes alive: a civil discourse on the Civil War

In the mid-1800s, Harpers Ferry seemed to be at the center of it all. It's the town where John Brown famously led his 1859 slave revolt and the site of the Civil War's Battle of Harpers Ferry. Visit museums detailing the city's historic past, walk across a battlefield, or tour preserved buildings from that era, including churches, forts, taverns, and blacksmith shops. Need a break from the carnage of war? Treat yourself to some retail therapy at an upscale boutique shop or settle in for a leisurely meal at a cozy little eatery.


Time to start hitting the old dusty trail

Move beyond the historic town center and sign-up with tour groups for an afternoon session of whitewater rafting. Those in search of something a bit more low-key may enjoy a day at the river with nothing more strenuous than tubing, kayaking, fishing, or canoeing. Work your way into the mountains and seek big adventures as you zipline, rock climb, and mountain bike through the dense landscape. Enjoy the great outdoors just steps from your Harpers Ferry vacation rental as the famed Appalachian Trail cuts right through the heart of town.


Sunny skies to snowy days: changing seasons see it all

Things heat up in the summer when temperatures climb to the high 80s with humidity to match. Mild seasons include the spring and fall when daytime highs land between the mid-60s and 70s. Rain falls steadily year-round but keep your galoshes handy for April, the region's wettest month. With nearly 21 inches of annual snowfall, Harpers Ferry's totals fall below the national average but it's still enough to bust out some winter boots. While daytime temps remain in the mid-40s in the winter, your Harpers Ferry vacation rental offers relief in the evening when it can dip below freezing.

Natural features

A vintage village set against snaking rivers

The Potomac and Shenandoah Rivers set the tone for the area's laidback landscape as they quietly converge at Harpers Ferry alongside lofty cliffs. The surrounding scenery is just as calming, as battlefields that once sounded with canons are now nothing more than sprawling meadows interrupted by the occasional squeak from a chipmunk. Across from the Potomac, instead of transporting coal, the sleepy Chesapeake and Ohio Canal now features quaint boat tours. In the fall, vibrant colors paint the hillsides of the surrounding Blue Ridge Mountains, while in the winter, snow-covered terrain invites visitors to embark on a leisurely snowshoe walk.
