About Laura Knott

We have been in the tourism industry since 1994 and the Battlefields Inn is our second vacation rental property. We also operate the Harpers Ferry Campgound. Because of our long history in the industry we understand the needs and desires of vistors to our area. Although we operate several other businesses, the vacation rentals are my primary focus personally so you will get the attention to detail you deserve.

Laura Knott purchased this house in 2011

Why Laura Knott chose West Virginia

We purchased this home in 2011 and over the winter of 2011-2012, we totally refurbished this historical home to bring it up to modern standards. It is conveniently located near other Harpers Ferry attractions and our other vacation rental making it an easy combination for larger groups. The house has a huge yard and field out back which gives plenty of area for relaxing or playing. Every year in May we host the Harpers Ferry Half Marathon and kids fun run nearby. The starting line is right out front of the home.

What makes this house unique

The home has been beautifully restored while maintaining the historical character. It is convenient to all the Harpers Ferry attractions some of which are within walking distance yet the home is in a semi rural setting. We have 2 master bedrooms with king beds, one on the main floor that is handicap accessible. We also have an internet ready big screen tv, a hot tub on our covered back porch, gas fireplace in the living room, and a large front porch with rocking chairs for relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our two families had a wonderful time in your beautiful home. We toured the area and Thanksgiving day was enjoyed with our grandson and three of his college friends from Patrick Henry College around your dining room table. We loved having the assortment of spices to enhance our meals!!"

Great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had a battlefield weekend with a mix of adults and kids. The place is exactly as described and perfect for what we wanted. We had a great time and really enjoyed the house and the area. A bonus for us (given we were there for the history) is that just across from the house is a place where John Brown used during his attempted uprising.

The only thing to note is that there is a very busy road nearby - we didn't notice it most of the time but it was very visible when we were out at the fire pit. That said it didn't diminish our enjoyment of the fire pit or our stay at all.

Thank you!!

Spacious, well appointed, details not overlooked

  • 5 of 5

Better than expected. I've found often that pictures on the website don't live up to the actual. I'd say the opposite here. The furniture, bedding, etc.. all looked in great condition. Towels plush, little amenities great. Location close to town and highway. It was off season, so no issues with the rafters. If you walk a couple hundred yards from the house, there's a little cemetery unmarked there; headstones from the 1800's. A part of history right there. Thanks for a great little getaway.

Great weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. It's a lovely house with lots of little touches that make it feel like a home away from home. The fireplace is super cozy and the hot tub is so relaxing.

Easy convenient getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Battlefields Inn was a perfect fit for a guys weekend out. The house was clean, well stocked, and comfortably furnished. Lots of information easily found in the house regarding local attractions and eateries, and lots of convenient utensils and pots and pans to use. The fire ring and hot tub are awesome additions, and the location is convenient to everything. River riders right down the street, for the adventurous at heart, or Hollywood casino ten minutes up the road for the even more adventurous. Will definitely return!

The 'Battlefields Inn' is located in the center of the School House Ridge Battlefield where the largest surrender of Union Troops occurred during the Civil War. Stonewall Jackson's troops marched right through the area where the Inn is located during the Battle of Harpers Ferry in September 1862.

The Inn is also near River Riders offering whitewater rafting, zip line canopy tours, aerial adventure parks, tubing, kayaking, canoeing, biking, teambuilding, summer camps for your kids, hiking, climbing, and fishing.

Free access to the deep water Potomac River for your boat at the Harpers Ferry Campground is included with your rental.

It is 5 miles to the Hollywood Casino at the Charles Town Races, 2 miles to the town of Harpers Ferry, and 15 minutes to Shepherdstown. The Appalachian Trail and entrance to the Harpers Ferry National Park are about 1 mile away.
