a wonderful getaway we had at the Hampshire House!
Innkeepers Jane and Scott Simmons were so cordial, we felt at home immediately!
The breakfast that was served filled our hearts with joy as well as our
tummies with Apricot and Creme stuffed French Toast. Our sincere thanks
go to the Simmons. We wanted to share some photos of Hampshire House and
entice you into staying, too.

A note from Jane and Scott:
We would like to
invite you to stay with us at Hampshire House 1884. You can enjoy the
charm of the 1800's in this completely restored period inn. Central air
conditioning, private baths and cable TV, along with sound-proofing are
part of this inn's modern comforts. Romney, the oldest town in WV, is
a small sleepy hamlet on the beautiful South Branch of the Potomac River.
We think it is a perfect place to just get away and a enjoy rejuvenating
change of pace.
