The Harpers Ferry Suite
The Harpers Ferry Suite has a country colonial atmosphere evocative of days gone bye. It is located in the oldest section of the Inn which dates to around 1804. In the sleeping area it has both a double and a single bed. The sitting area features an antique writing desk and sofa bed. The room also has a private bath, separate outside entrance, and a private porch. Amenities include cable, LCD TV, DVD and Wi-Fi. Your own thermostat controls a practically silent central heating and cooling unit dedicated to your room.
Visitors to the Inn enjoy the town of Harpers Ferry, a short scenic drive from Sharpsburg down the old "John Brown Road". In 1859 John Brown rented the Kennedy Farm outside of Sharpsburg on the road to Harpers Ferry. Using the alias Isaac Smith and posing as a prospector he secretly hauled wagon loads of weapons through town to his men gathering at the farm. His aborted attack on the Harpers Ferry Arsenal was intended to free the slaves and provoke civil war.
