Though I didn't see Amy, I met Chris who was very friendly. I talked to him whenever we saw him. I just love to meet people. I... More

While driving back to Illinois after spending a week in Virginia, we decided that the mild late February weather might allow for a visit to Antietam Battlefield, so we made phone contact with Chris and booked the Stonewall Jackson room, sight unseen... Sometimes you just get lucky! This B&B is located in downtown Sharpsburg, only a couple miles from the... More

We stayed in the General's Quarters which is a stand alone cottage steps from the main house. The living room area is the original kitchen from the early days of the house's existence and thus has the original cooking fireplace. The sleeping area is very comfortable and the bathroom is quite large. There is also a sitting porch that looks... More

We stayed one night but still felt the unique experience of being so close to history. It provided a very unique perspective of the town and layout of the battle. I was especially moved by the experience of what Sharpsburg citizenry had to have gone through. Despite its antiquity, the house was perfectly appointed and comfortable and the hosts were... More
