A visit to the White House Farm is just one of many reasons to travel to West Virginia, along with some incredible places to stay nearby – now bookable on Culture Trip.
Visitors flock to the Mountain State to see historic sites from the bitterly fought Civil War, hike the legendary Appalachian Trail and try their luck at the racetrack and casino. There are plenty of hotel options to meet any travel needs – from historic inns with luxury breakfasts and spas, to hotels that cater to families on a budget.
Enjoy a luxurious and historic stay at Hillbrook Inn in Charles Town, West Virginia – the three-building property is built on land once owned by George Washington. Rooms have a classic feel, given by dark wood furniture and cozy fireplaces, while the inn serves a delicious gourmet breakfast with choices including eggs benedict and soufflés. Be sure to book a therapeutic spa service – especially if you’re visiting to hike the Appalachian Trail.
Listed on the National Registry of Historic Places, the Carriage Inn and Breakfast is a small slice of American heritage. The rooms are carefully decorated to honor the history of the home, but have been updated with modern amenities to accommodate even the most discerning visitor. The innkeepers take great pride in their home and are happy to discuss its story – the breakfast and afternoon snacks are merely the cherries on top.
Given the many attractions nearby – Harpers Ferry, Hollywood Casino, Civil War sites and various hiking trails – it’s not uncommon for guests to stay for extended periods. Home2 Suites is therefore catered to the needs of long-term guests and their pets. The rooms have full-sized appliances, cutlery and plates to make and enjoy delicious meals in your room, while the property is outfitted with a large fitness room, indoor pool and washers and dryers.
A comfortable and welcoming stay awaits at the conveniently located Holiday Inn Express. The spacious rooms and updated facilities were designed with the modern traveler in mind. Small details throughout make a big impact, from convenient bedside charging stations to grab-and-go breakfasts and a heated indoor pool – plus a pillow menu for maximum comfort. Even getting around is made easy, with complimentary parking and a free shuttle to and from the nearby casino.
The Clarion Inn at Harpers Ferry has all the charm of a small-town stay – the staff are very hospitable and eager to help guests book and plan activities in the area, whether it be water-tubing, hiking or antique shopping. After a day of exploring the historic area, a cold brew and burger await at the White Horse restaurant. The plush beds are a welcome sight following a full day of adventures, too.
Convenient in all ways, Hilton Gardens Inn is a great place to stay and see it all. The highway location offers easy access to local attractions including historic sites, children’s play parks and wineries, and a classic American restaurant is on-site, with room service available. The rooms’ brightly colored touches are a nice juxtaposition to the classic decor, and all are equipped with almost everything you’ll need, from microwaves to in-room snacks.
