Why Laura Knott chose Harpers Ferry
This vacation rental is an obvious addition to our other ventures. Much care and attention to detail was involved in the modernization and restoration of this home for your enjoyment. We have many years of understanding our guests and providing them with a quality experience. You won't be disappointed.
No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
This home was great to accommodate a large family! The location is perfect with plenty to do closeby. The campfire ring was great for smores in the evening! Laura was wonderful to communicate with and even gave us some ideas of things to do.
Great size house, just minutes away from grocery stores and downtown Harpers Ferry. Didn’t realize house was next door to the river riders so Sunday when we checked in, the field right behind the house was packed with cars! However, weekdays it was quieter. Wish we knew the mega zipline was only opens on weekends. Missed out on that.
Bring extra paper towels and toilet paper, we only had one roll of each to start.
Overall we loved our stay and would consider this a traditional annual event.
Great Experience at Adventure Inn
This was a good choice for our annual family camp. It's the second year we did not choose tents and it was amazing at Adventure Inn. Close to great outdoor activities. Some of us spent some time at the river, which was refreshing. Close enough to Walmart for quick trips for forgotten or needed items.
Great for large groups!
Exactly as advertised. Kitchen well supplied with everything you need. Beds very comfortable. Lots of room. The only additions that would make it more comfortable would be more chairs in the bedrooms and gathering spaces and more surfaces to put things on.
Enjoyed our girlfriend time at the house. Very convenient location. Six women could have used more towels. Glad we brought some from home.
Would recommend this house to large family with plenty of space.
Girls Weekend Aeay
Fantastic stay. House was charming and although quite large, was still very cozy. The only reason the rating is 4 and not 5 stars is that we had some difficulty with the heating. The front room baseboard heater would not turn off or lower the temperature so that room was quite warm. And the upstairs was also warm. Furnace system was rather loud too. But these issues may be expected in an older home and it didn't deter us from enjoying our stay. The house was conveniently located for many of the winter activities in which we're interested. Would definitely stay here again! Thanks for sharing this lovely home.
