About Laura Knott

We have been in the travel industry for 18 years as the owners of River Riders an outfitter just up the street. We have operated the Harpers Ferry Campground as well.

Laura Knott purchased this house in 2010

Why Laura Knott chose West Virginia

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.

Beautiful & Spacious!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot rave about our experience enough! Everything with this home was so easy & convenient that it made our long weekend that much more enjoyable. The home is a lovely, lovely gem & very comfortable. We felt right at home & thoroughly enjoyed our time there.

Because of our wonderful experience, we're aiming to make this the annual gathering place for our family. Can't wait to visit again!

Comfortable house makes for a fun weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 4 couples meet here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The beds are very comfy (although the one king bedroom does not have any bedside lamps, so I could not read a book at night) and the house is quite roomy. The hot tub was a nice amenity - & it was in good condition, not a gross one like we've had in a different rental.

The 8 of us biked the C & O canal and used River Riders for tubing & whitewater rafting for a fun weekend . Just be aware the coffee maker can take 45 min- hour to brew a pot of coffee 😕򕐊Renzo (property manager) was great & always quick to respond to any questions/issues we had. We did wish there was another couch in the big fireplace room in the back so all 8 adults could sit together comfortably.

We would definitely consider staying here again if we come to Harper's Ferry another time.

Great house for a family get together!

  • 5 of 5

The Adventure Inn was a perfect setup for accommodating our family while visiting the Harper's Ferry area. We had plenty of space for the three adult couples and two little children that stayed here. The house was very clean and in a great location. We were in town for a family reunion and it was so much better than staying in a hotel. And the River Riders were only two doors down for our river rafting trip. Thanks for making our stay such a treat!

Wonderful site for our family get-together

  • 5 of 5

We found the Adventure Inn to be a large, comfortable, well-maintained house convenient to food, hiking, and activities in Harper's Ferry and Charles Town. It was the perfect size and configuration for our family to celebrate Memorial Day and our baby's first birthday, with a generous great room, quiet living room, and sleeping quarters for 14 (we peaked at 8), including two master bedrooms. The hot tub was a nice touch. Thank you River Riders!
