About Warren Dunbar

I bought this house in 2015 as a Home away from Home. I use it to get away from the hustle and bustle and just relax. Gorgeous views, surrounded by nature, and lots to do. I love my "escape home" in Harper's Ferry, and I am sure you will too!

Great fit for weekend trip

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed staying here for a quick weekend trip. Easy walk into town and quick drive to the National Park. We arrived just as the temperature dropped and a little snow fell. The drive and walk were shoveled for us which we greatly appreciated and the owner emailed to make sure we arrived okay. The home was clean, had ample furnishings, and easy to connect wi-fi. Lots to do close by: hiking, history, casino, great food, breweries, and wineries.

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time; it's a nice spot. The house is perfect for a family of four, with comfortable accommodations and 2.5 bathrooms. The location is really nice - it's easy to walk to town and downhill to the river. From there you can take the shuttle back to the parking lot and it's a short walk to the house.

The only drawback is the house is a little dark; could use some more lights and maybe a screen door to let more light in. The patio is a little weedy, though there's a nice propane grill we made good use of. There's a nice TV with DVD player and satellite TV. Overall it's a great house and location.

Nice family or friend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely, well furnished, large enough for a family or group of friends. It does have minimal silverware and may need plastic cutlery if you are a larger party. Quiet neighborhood, walkable for coffee, drinks, or food.

Ideal for both relaxation and adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time exploring Harpers Ferry. We also visited Greenbrier State Park in Md where the kids had a great time on the beach and swimming in the lake. The house was well appointed and a great place to kick back and relax after a day of adventure. We look forward to returning.

Not well maintained property close to downtown Harpers Ferry

  • 2 of 5

We were very disappointed in the house. It was dirty - crumbs on dining room table, sink was obviously not cleaned, and the refrigerator was disgusting. The very small and closed in patio was overrun with weeds. We had to clean the glasses before using them. The trashcan outside was full. The bedrooms and bathrooms were ok, and there was ample space in the house. But it is an arduous treck into downtown because of hills, so I thought it was misleading to advertise its accessibility by foot. There is no view from the house but the area is pretty and there are some nice restaurants.

Owner's Response: We have had over 100 guest stay at our property. 99 percent rave about how nice and clean everything is, and how much they love the location, as reflected in our other reviews. We spoke with our housekeeper, and strive to keep all our guest comfortable and happy. Obviously, you can not satisfy everyone.
