    About this property

    Family-friendly, Centrally Located, Quiet, Updated, Historic Home Built in 1890

    Romantic ski getaway near Harpers Ferry National Historical Park
    The Spy House is rich with history and has been lovingly updated by Its owner. It was built in 1890 in the Federal style and has been adapted for modern living with an open-concept living room and kitchen. Any cook will feel at home in the well appointed eat-in kitchen. You can enjoy a relaxing meal around the large handmade farm table. You will find a heavy-duty gas stove, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. The master bathroom features a vintage clawfoot tub and the guest bathroom was recently remodeled. Each of the three bedrooms has a comfortable queen-sized bed. The house is situated on Camp Hill, is less than a ten minute walk to downtown historic Harpers Ferry and the train station. There is no downside to being so close to the action as even on the busiest of days in the Ferry, it remains quiet at the Spy House. One of the house's former residents was suspected of being a spy for Germany, investigated and arrested by the FBI in 1945, and soon after pleaded guilty to charges of conspiracy to commit espionage; hence the name, the Spy House.

        Comfy and clean

        The house is spacious and well appointed. In the midst of a remodel, but still clean and the work being done is meticulous. Beds are very comfortable and bathrooms had good lighting and water pressure. Close to historic Harper’s Ferry so you can walk everywhere. AT access a block away. Thanks Jay!

        5/5 Excellent

          Amazing location! Centrally located to the town and all hiking trails.

          We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The property was clean and had everything we needed to make our stay an enjoyable one. Thank you!

              Cute house in great location

              We had a great time at the Spy House. Perfect location for enjoying Harper's Ferry. A short walk to some beautiful autumn sights! The house was well stocked - right down to the morning coffee! We enjoyed the spacious table for board game playing and multiple living spaces.
