Where you’ll be

Harpers Ferry, West Virginia, United States

Harpers Ferry has incredible natural beauty including hiking trails, biking, charming small towns (especially ours), tons of fascinating American history -- and peace and quiet.

The Appalachian trail comes right into town, and Harpers Ferry is a major watering hole for "through hikers"-- people hiking from Georgia to Maine. River rafting companies are a ten-minute drive from town.

The area is historic: John Brown's raid took place downtown in 1859, and historic Storer College, created in 1865 to educate freed slaves after the Civil War. "Lower town" (also called "The Ferry") remains in quaint civil-wart-era style with both operating and historic shops and restaurants.

Some highlights you can still see around town: The arsenal that John Brown in an attempt to launch an armed slave revolt and the key battlefields fought by Union and Confederate armies. (Bolivar Heights and Antietam are among the famous.) The buildings that housed Storer College, and frequent civil war reenactments by the National Park Service.

Among many interesting local towns are Shepherdstown (the home of Shepherd University) and Charles town (where John Brown was executed.) Both feature historic sites, cute shops, and a variety of restaurants.

I am taking up the host torch on my own after losing my wife, who adored hosting. I am an environmental chemist who enjoys the garden and building furniture. I love to spend time with family, especially my newborn twin granddaughters.

During your stay

I live in the house too, but respect all my guests privacy. I am available for anything you need before and during your stay, including recommendations to local restaurants and the best trails.
