The Inn is situated in the heart of historic Harpers Ferry, which is located at the confluence of the Potomac River and Senandoah River and is surrounded by the Harpers Ferry National Historic Park (http://www.nps.gov/), the Chesapeake and Ohio National Park (http://www.nps.gov/co), and the AppalachianTrail National Park (www.nps.gov). You will find a cluster of private shops andrestaurants, museums, rivers, trails, and the Amtrak / MARC train station within a few steps of the Inn.
