5/5 Excellent

Surround Yourself in History
The Riverkeeper Inn was chosen because of its close proximity to Harpers Ferry, Antietam Battlefield and Cemetery, and the Gettysburg Battlefield. The hosts, Bill and Robyn, are gracious and kind and they were extremely thoughtful. We also got to know their Golden Retriever, Chloe; she is such a sweet dog! The rental itself is comfortable; although, there’s not not a full cooking kitchen. Smaller, indoor meals are possible by using the crockpot or the toaster oven. (A refrigerator and microwave are also included.) Two bbqs are on the premises and available for cooking full dinners. We traveled a lot, so most of our dinners were at restaurants. The bathroom is functional, though spacious it isn’t. More importantly, take in their view!! Whenever we spent time on the property, we enjoyed the view of the Potomac River from their several outdoor spaces including the large, net-screened pergola. Our hosts were most friendly and hospitable. They would love to have us stay again and we just might, as we have more historical places to visit and more nature parks to enjoy in W. Virginia. Overall, we highly recommend this place for a couple.

5/5 Excellent

Cozy beautiful setting on the Shenandoah river
A clean, comfortable, well appointed guest house with access to spectacular riverside decks with glorious views of the Shenandoah river. The owner, William, was a curtious and helpful host, responding to questions and minor concerns in very timely manner. Our stay was so pleasant and restful!

5/5 Excellent

Great Location
Bill and Robin were gracious hosts. Bill immediately took care of issue with the downstairs television. And both inquired if we were satisfied with the accommodations. Neat, clean, lots of bright light, good water pressure and comfortable bed and pillows. This rental has a spiral staircase which can be tricky to maneuver, but in addition to railing there were also grip bars that helped.Our dog would not use them, but there was also an outside staircase that we used to get her upstairs.Neighborhood quiet and safe. Would stay here again.

4/5 Good

River Keeper
From the pictures on website thought the place was right on the water not behind the main house , the inside was what we expected from the photos , the interior stairs are tricky, spiral but hand rails were helpful, I took my suitcase up the exterior back stairs, got used to the steep spiral stairs , . The owners were friendly and helpful, wanted to use the canoe and kayak available but were quite unkept , the bottoms were full of water , so we didn’t use them , the owner addressed this issue and told us to turn it over to get rid of water and the hose was available to wash them off, the drive way to converted garage into a efficient apartment was very narrow , my husband backed up our car to apartment , the apartment was stocked with towels, dish towels, coffee , we bought our own, dishes , coffee pot, microwave, toaster oven, nice size refrigerator, one small bathroom on the first floor , bedroom and sitting room on the second floor , . It was adequate accommodation for a short stay , much more comfortable than a hotel, so we were happy with staying there after the initial disappointment that it was not directly on the water, but close enough to go down the driveway and enjoying the deck with table , chairs and nice swing , . It advertised as sleeping 4 but with one bathroom two people was perfect . Overall would give it a 4 stars , but did enjoy our stay

5/5 Excellent

Relaxation vacation
We had it all. We could go into town for dining and site seeing or stay at the cottage with access to kayak, walking, horseshoes, grilling, sitting on the deck overlooking the river. We had it all.
