Historical Traveler Reviews Highlawn Inn Berkeley Springs
Highlawn Inn Provides Peace, Comfort, and a Great Breakfast
The Highlawn Inn B & B is nestled in the hills of West Virginia in the small town of Berkeley Springs, WV, about 6 miles south of the Hancock, MD exit on I-70. My wife and I have stayed at the Inn many times over the past 8 years, so we consider the Inn to be our home away from home. Innkeepers Sandy and Tim are dedicated to providing a comfortable, relaxed environment for all guests, and their endeavors seem to have paid off because they attract many repeat guests, such as ourselves. The house (I should say houses, since there are several buildings) features rooms of a variety of sizes, several of which even include hot tubs. All rooms are comfortable, clean, and quiet, and each has its own special character.
The breakfast is nothing short of astounding - the best of any B & B at which we have stayed. In addition to fresh eggs and bacon and other typical breakfast items, Sandy makes interesting casseroles and pastries. You won't need to eat lunch!
The town of Berkeley Springs is quite interesting - focusing on the various arts and featuring outstanding spas and restaurants.
Excellant..they have cats!
It is a delightful place to stay. Excellant food, warm ambiance. and caring and engaging owners. They have three cats, Chico, GoldE, and Geronimo.What a homey touch to have their family cats greet you upon arrival! Owners ,Tim and Sandy, assist you with spa reservations and are very helpful with navigating downtown!
After rave reviews, and scanning their website, we had high expectations. It was simply OK; bring your own shampoo. The website said no animals allowed on the property. It didn't mention there were several cats in residence, makes it mighty uncomfortable for someone allergic especially when they roam through the dining room during breakfast. Check out the town's movie theater. It's cute on the weekends
My sister and I had a wonderful time in Berkeley Springs which was made even better by the superb service and impeccably cared for Highlawn Inn. I selected the Highlawn Inn from their website among other B&Bs in the area. After reading Trip Advisor reviews, I knew I would get the best. We were not disappointed from the minute we stepped onto the spacious porch and entered the inviting foyer we knew we had gotten it right. The room we stayed in had a wonderful king size bed and a special claw foot tub. The very full breakfasts had everything homemade from the jelly and fruit juices to the fresh pasteries. The dining area was cozy and the table settings were perfect. Sandy was always helpful and set up dinner reservations for us and gave us pointers on where to enjoy our time best in Berkeley Springs. The Highlawn Inn website references the Atasia Spa. We availed ourselves of their massage services which were perfect along with the whole environment being relaxing and the people great. I definitely will be back.
Almost Heaven at the Highlawn Inn....
We look forward to our annual escape from reality at The Highlawn Inn, it is almost heaven!!
The Bathkeepers Quarters is so warm and cozy, complete with Jacuzzi and fireplace! Sandy and Tim are the sweetest innkeepers you will ever find, we consider them to be our friends. Their cooking is beyond gourmet, tasting is truly believing! We were not oatmeal fans until we tried Sandy's fruit oatmeal!! Wow!
You should experience The Highlawn Inn for yourself. Prepare to be pampered and to eat like a king and queen!!
A must place to relax
Highlawn Inn is a fabulous place to relax and spend quality time. The accommodations are always superb - we have been there several times - Apple Butter Festival and Victorian Holiday are especially great weekends. Sandy and Tim always cater to our special needs from making spa appoinments, dinner reservations (when we're not enjoying Sandy's special dinners)!
Can't miss spending time at Highlawn Inn.
Very Unprofessional In Returning Calls
After reading all the reviews, my husband and I were enticed by the description of the Highlawn Inn, so I called to make a reservation. I left a message, which was not returned. Finally, I called again, and the woman who answered acknowledged that she had heard my message, but had (rudely) not bothered to return my call. Needless to say, we took our patronage elsewhere and stayed at Maria's Garden and Inn, which was an excellent experience.
The best b&b breakfast
Spent a weekend at the Highlawn Inn with friends and had the most relaxing and enjoyable experience. We rented the Gatekeepers Cottage and were very pleased with the accomodations. Sandy is an outstanding cook, and the breakfasts and dinner that she prepared were fabulous. We plan to do it again and would highly recommend the Highlawn Inn to others.
My husband and I have now visited here 3 times. Everytime has been perfect from the rooms to the wonderful cooking done by Sandy. The breakfasts are superb and there is always tea, coffee, water.. etc..
anytime you want it. The scenery is beautiful and the rooms are decorated with wonderful furnishings. We will definitely be going back and are even taking my parents back with us. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable visit !!!
Totally charmed by the Highlawn Inn
We had a wonderful experience at the Highlawn in June. It was horribly hot but the air conditioning was wonderful - here you get all the graciousness of a country inn (antiques and charm - we even had our own private porch) with the comforts of a quality motel or hotel. Sandy and her crew couldn't have been nicer. Her breakfasts were not only creative but so generous we skipped lunch each day. Her special Silver Service dinner was also worth signing up for!! Plus: there is unlimited coffee, various teas and spring water at any hour - you just help yourself. Berkeley Springs is charming, with great food and shopping, but in addition Harper's Ferry, Charlestown + Sheperdstown are only a short drive away. We will definitely go back!!

... walked to Trusty's, the bar in which we first kissed with an upstairs bar made out of a school bus. Heaven, gregarious as usual, made friends with everyone in sight and soon we had a lively crowd drinking yuengling and playing jenga together.

... village or fort. There’s an excellent indoor display and one of the outside buildings houses the actual first hole that was drilled (69.5’) where they struck oil. The building is an exact replica and the equipment inside is all operational, including a pipe that still brings up oil. The hole has been dry for years but they keep recycling some oil as a demonstration. It didn’t start raining until I was ready to leave.
Day 327 6 hrs, 10 kms Today is the big day: I'm going to officially cross from "The North" to the "The South" on my Appalachian Superhike. I don't expect any earth shattering discoveries--but it's still a symbolic moment in my journey through America.
So after a quick walk through and a couple more photos ...

Lincoln wanted his army to pursue the Southern army and fight them while they were cornered, but his general chose not to, allowing Lee and his army to escape when the waters receded.

John and Sharon invited us back to their house afterwards and we went out to Johns favourite chicken wing house for dinner where you have a choice of over 30 different sauces. They are such lovely people and have invited us to stay at their house in August when the group plans a bike ride to Milwalkie for the 110th HD anniversary.
