Harpers Ferry Adventures in West Virginia!
Civil War history draws many from near and far to West Virginia’s eastern panhandle. One of the main attractions is Harpers Ferry, located only 12 miles (or 20 minutes) from Hillbrook Inn.
The rich history of Harpers Ferry, including John Brown’s raid of 1859, is just the beginning of what the area has to offer. There are many historical museums, exhibits and other points of interest – too many to see in a single day – plus guided tours to help you learn about the significance of Harpers Ferry and the Civil War.

Just as a visit to Hillbrook Inn & Spa is enhanced with a relaxing massage and a meal at the renowned Redbook Restaurant, a trip to historic Charles Town, West Virginia, would not be complete without seeing a performance at The Old Opera House Theatre Company. Opened in 1911, the Old Opera House has been a cultural arts center in the Charles Town community for the last century.
Hillbrook Inn & Spa is pleased to announce the recent branding of The Redbook Restaurant, a guest-centric fine dining experience in West Virginia’s Eastern Panhandle. While The Redbook Restaurant isn’t new, it now has a name that exemplifies the elegant taste experience captured on every plate.
West Virginia, the Mountain State, is a wonderful destination for fall road trips, fun festivals and more. With nearly 80 percent of West Virginia covered in trees, there are many activities to enjoy that celebrate the autumn season, from scenic hiking trails to local wineries with expansive mountain views, this region is a destination for spectacular fall foliage.
The Fall season is the perfect time to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and get out to the country –wine country that is. The rolling Northern Virginia landscape provides productive ground for winemaking grapes with its rich soils from eons of granite and sandstone erosion. Local wineries produce fine examples of popular Virginia wines, including Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chambourcin, Chardonnay, Mandolin, Merlot, Norton, Petit Verdot, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Seyval, Vidal Blanc, Traminette and Zinfandel.
A Hillbrook wine tour is a great way to explore the area. We chauffer guests to three award-winning Northern Virginia wineries, where they get to enjoy tastings while overlooking scenic landscapes of beautiful autumn colors.
