About this property

Entire place

You'll have the entire home to yourself and will only share it with other guests in your party.

Family-friendly, centrally located, quiet, updated, historic home built in 1890.

Historic vacation home in Harpers Ferry
The Spy House is rich with history and has been lovingly updated by Its owner. It was built in 1890 in the Federal style and has been adapted for modern living with an open-concept living room and kitchen.

Any cook will feel at home in the well appointed eat-in kitchen. You can enjoy a relaxing meal around the large handmade farm table. You will find a heavy-duty gas stove, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops.

The master bathroom features a vintage clawfoot tub and the guest bathroom was recently remodeled. Each of the three bedrooms has a comfortable queen-sized bed.

The house is situated on Camp Hill, is less than a ten minute walk to downtown historic Harpers Ferry and the train station. There is no downside to being so close to the action as even on the busiest of days in the Ferry, it remains quiet at the Spy House.

One of the house's former residents was suspected of being a spy for Germany, investigated and arrested by the FBI in 1945, and soon after pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit espionage; hence the name, the Spy House.

Please note that nightly rates are based on 4 guests; add $50 per night, per additional guest.

Comfy and clean
The house is spacious and well appointed. In the midst of a remodel, but still clean and the work being done is meticulous. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms had good lighting and water pressure. Close to historic Harper’s Ferry so you can walk everywhere. AT access a block away. Thanks Jay!

5/5 Excellent

Cozy, comfortable, great location.
The Spy House provided a wonderful place to stay in Harpers Ferry. Right in Historic Harpers Ferry, only minutes from restaurants, hiking, history. The owner, Jay, was extremely helpful, friendly and responsive. The house was very comfortable, even in this summer's heat. We loved the kitchen and the open concept. Jay is continuing with renovations to this gem which will only make future stays even more wonderful.
