Beautiful home. Great location

  • 4 of 5

Our family just spent a long week-end here and had a wonderful time. The house is very well furnished and maintained. With a 1st floor family room and a 2nd floor living room, it is easy to have separate activities going on at the same time.

It is centrally located for access to the park, restaurants, and activities. (Note that walking in Harper's Ferry involves a lot of steep ups and downs. A 1-mile walk can seem a lot longer by the time you are done.)

Desiree is incredibly easy to work with and quick to respond to any questions.

Absolutely loved staying in this home! Clean and very spacious. The view from the deck was incredible! I can't wait to go back again, maybe this spring.

Lovely and comfortable even for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here - it's a lovely house with wonderful views and plenty of space. Our group of 5 adults, 3 kids, and a baby fit easily here. And the owner was very accommodating to our requests - she even loaned us her own bike when we were one short for our biking excursion. Also loved how close we were to historical Harper's Ferry. Great location and space.

A well-maintained house just a short walk from everything

  • 5 of 5

My group had a great experience at "A little bit of Paradise". The owner was incredibly responsive to our questions and needs. The house was very comfortable, and ready for us when we arrived (sheets, towels, etc.) and we had a great time. It was also the ideal location for us since we were attending a wedding at the Lighthorse Inn and we could easily walk to and from the wedding.

We would definitely stay here again!

Great weekend retreat

  • 5 of 5

Neat, tidy and well-maintained house, with plenty of room for 8 people to enjoy and beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. Desiree was very responsive and accommodating, and gave plenty of useful info about the house and area. The house is also easy walking distance to most places in Harpers Ferry (for those who don't mind walking up and down hills), even though it is out of the main historical downtown area. The central A/C was really a welcome bonus on a hot and humid summer weekend.
