Our room was spacious, very comfortable and quiet. As my husband said, " Good shower, comfortable bed, wonderful breakfast and a great location. What more could you ask for?" I'll add that Chris and Amy were delightful hosts and extremely helpful. Thank you both.

The Rohrback Inn is a lovely historical B&B. Amy and Chris Vincent are both charismatic and energetic hosts who clearly have a passion for the inn and for creating a warm and inviting retreat for their guests. The property is meticulously maintained and the hospitality is organized and thoughtful. Both Amy and Chris were able to help with advice or...

My husband and I stayed in the General's Quarters to get away for the evening. We checked in around 4 and Amy and Chris (and Zoey and Maya of course!) greeted us. Amy and Chris were very knowledgeable on the entire area! They were willing to help with any Antietam battlefield tour recommendations (Chris even does a tour himself!) as...

We went to Sharpsburg to visit Antietam. Sharpsburg is not a great metropolis but the Jacob Rohrbach Inn is a gem. It is a beautiful historic building with parking in back (entry is also in the rear). Our room was large and very comfortable with a nicely appointed ensuite. The common space was nicely done with coffee always available. The...

Chris and Amy really made us feel like family during our two day stay at the Inn. The accommodations were fantastic and very clean, bed was super comfortable and the rooms were well maintained. We had a small TV, DVD player, cable and DVD's that covered much of the local history and enhanced our stay. The breakfasts were delicious and...

Chris and Amy were lovely hosts. This home is so well maintained and clean--we were sad to only stay one night but we were on a whirlwind tour of Civil War sites. Breakfast was delicious (and plentiful!) and they were able to accommodate vegetarian requests. The butter brickle scone was better than I've had at many bakeries on either Coast!...

Chris and Amy are wonderful hosts who made us feel very comfortable in their beautiful Inn. The breakfast (French Toast!) was excellent. Their knowledge of the Antietam Battlefield and surrounding area was very helpful.

We stayed here for one night at the end of February/beginning of March for one night. We had hoped to spend the night at the B&B in nearby Boonsboro, but when they were full, we found this and decided to stay here instead. Simply put, our stay here could not have gone better. The B&B and the room are old...

My husband and I traveled to the Jacob Rohrbach Inn for a much needed romantic weekend away. We had a fabulous time. We stayed in the Clara Barton room and found the bed to be very comfortable, the sheets divine and the clawfoot tub historic. Chris and Amy were perfect hosts and the breakfasts divine. We've never been fond of...
