We stayed in the General's Quarters which was perfect for a family of four (with school age children). Joanne shared the interesting history of her historic home during our visit and also provided us with a DVD about Antitetam which we watched before visiting the battlefield. She provided a bunch of options for dinner and detailed directions. As an added...

If you enjoy a great B&B this is the place. Joanne is a warm and friendly hostess, the breakfasts are delicious, and the area is full of activities. We have stayed here many times over the last ten years, and love to visit the Inn, and Joanne and Paul.

Joanne did a great job of explaining the history of the home to us and made a fantastic breakfast for us. The room we stayed in was beautiful with the feel of a civil war home except with all the modern conviences. I'm hoping to have another chance to visit the area and if so I'll be sure to stay...

We recently took a weekend trip to visit the Antietam Battlefield and one of the highlights of our adventure was our night at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn. We stayed in what used to be the outdoor kitchen, beautifully renovated and charming, with a sitting porch overlooking the back garden. Joann is a great hostess and a terrific cook. We were...

We made last minute plans to stay hear a week before our anniversary. They were so accommodating. The Antietam room on the 2nd floor is awesome. You get a huge porch that overlooks the garden. They roast and brew their own coffee! One of the many exciting things at breakfast.

From lively, Civil War-themed décor to lavish, lovingly-made breakfasts, this was the best of the B&Bs we've visited. Joanne & Paul worked hard to make their guests happy and comfortable, but made it seem effortless. Always homemade cookies in the dining room and breakfast recipes from Better Homes and Gardens (or possibly Southern Living). The grounds and garden were at...

My wife and I stayed at the JR Inn during a weeklong getaway which included DC. It is really a fabulous old home with fascinating early 19th C. and Civil War history behind it.
