“Homey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 October 2011

Set back off the street, with a lovely grassy lawn and large old trees, the inn's front porch was a very inviting place to sit with morning coffee or evening tea (of which they offered a fine selection, including decaf). Urns of hot water and coffee were always available. Perfectly situated for historic walking tours or leisurely strolls around the beautiful neighborhood. Comfy chairs and plenty of space in our room made us feel like we were in our own home. Arriving after dark, we felt welcomed by the warm lighting in the entryway and our room, as well as the sweetness of the innkeepers and the goodies available for a snack. Decor was tastefully done and not overdone. Innkeepers' delight with the home's history was infectious. We could easily stay there a full week, just relaxing and enjoying the ambiance.

I've stayed at the Carriage Inn several times, each time in a different room. It's hard to say which would be my favorite. The Robin's Nest is on the top floor and is a delightful getaway! The period decor is elegant, yet warm...not at all stuffy. The hosts, Donn & Marie, have a knack for making one feel as though they are a long lost friend and incredibly special. There's an atmosphere of kindness and happiness, but one never feels intruded upon. The food is delicious and special dietary needs are met with grace. This is a must for anyone traveling through the area. Whether a history buff, hitting the tracks, antiquing, or heading to DC, secure a room today!

Room Tip: Only one room on ground floor, the rest are on the 2nd and 3rd. If stairs are an issue let them kno...

Donn and Marie are wonderful hosts. Lots of history in home and around the neighborhood. Breakfast was amazing.

We ran away from home overnight, and this was a delightful place to do so! Very convenient to the Charles Town Races, without being at all like that grimy, over-hyped neon atmosphere. A beautiful place!

Very nice hosts, interesting bit of history, and good food. The afternoon coffee and dessert was spot on - nicely presented and tasty. If you are a light sleeper, select a room in the back of the inn to avoid traffic/train noise.
