Hampshire House 1884

What 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.

A three day notice of cancellation is required for a deposit to be refunded or applied to another date. Less than a three day cancellation will result in a refund only if the room can be rented. The first floor guest room is wheelchair accessible. The garden-patio in the rear fenced yard is named after the fourth owner, Mrs. Minnie Peters because she was such an avid gardener. Renovations on the house began in June 1987 and we opened for business in June 1988.
