We spent three nights staying in Joanne and Paul's lovely home. From the start we were made to feel welcome and our hosts couldn't have been more helpful with books, pamphlets and advice to help plan our visit. We chose the Antietam room. It is a good size, lots of cupboard and drawer space and with its own private porch...

We spent the weekend at this charming B&B in historic Sharpsburg, a stone's throw from Antietam Battlefield. We chose the spacious General's Quarters room with its separate entrance, private porch facing a beautiful garden, queen-sized bed and double pull-out couch, ample bathroom, mini fridge, Wi-Fi/HD TV/DVD, with ample parking in the back. Joanne and Paul, the owners, couldn't have been...

We were very impressed with the historic inn. It was full of charm and Joanne made us very welcome. The delicious home cooked breakfast were much enjoyed. Joanne was very informative about the history of the area. We would certainly stay there again and will highly recommend anyone who is looking for accommodation with a special feel. Christine W.

We had a wonderful time. Excellent room, delicious food, and gracious hospitality. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast, we enjoyed it immensely. We highly recommend staying at the inn if you are planning on visiting the Sharpsburg area.

While away on a girls weekend, we have never been as welcome anywhere as we were by Joann and her husband. Traveling from Northeast Tennessee, we were arriving late, and Joann was very accommodating and letting us arrive when we did so late at night. The next morning, we had a brilliant breakfast, and great conversation with the other guests....

We (my wife, son and I) were heading down to Harrisonburg, VA, to visit JMU and decided to stop at Antietam for the first time.

Joanne and her husband make you really feel at home in this 5 room B&B. The inn has its own historic value and Joanne will teach you about its place in that period. Fabulous breakfasts. Rooms have private entrances and there is room outside to relax with a bottle of wine after a day touring Antietam. Just 2 miles+ miles...

This was our first stay in Antietam. I'd been looking at the Jacob Rohrbach Inn online for a few years and finally made reservations for my husband’s birthday. We stayed in the Antietam Suite, and our friends stayed in the Clara Barton Suite. It worked out great for us because of the adjoining door between the rooms. We found the...

We enjoyed this Inn. The beds were comfortable and the room was charming. We spent some time in the living room drinking our wine and munching cookies that Joanne had made. Breakfast was good, but overwhelming. Joanne went out of her way to accommodate our vegan daughter and we appreciated that. And on the morning we left there was snow...
