The Cannon Hill Inn

The front of the lodge

The Cannon Hill Inn was a former railroader's home in downtown Rowlesburg. The lines are a classic turn of the century late Victorian home. Though some of the house has changed over the years, many of the original features were revealed as we restored the downstairs, including a fireplace with cast iron surround and mantel of wood. The original staircase and railing remain. Upstairs, the floors are the original Chestnut found in many homes in Rowlesburg. The main room of the house, the parlor, is now the sitting room for guests.

The décor reflects the Civil War Battle which took place in Rowlesburg in 1863. General McClellan had ordered a Parrott Gun to be placed strategically on what is now called Cannon Hill. A replica of the cannon stands proudly outside of the Inn. The Inn features many artifacts found locally from the battle itself.

With the restoration we decided to have a first-floor suite that would be handicap accessible. The room chosen features a beautiful bay window, likely added in the early 20th century. A four-poster queen bed sits in the bay window as though it were there by design. This is a generous size room furnished with antiques and an oriental rug. This suite offers a handicap accessible bath with roll-in shower.

The bathroom was the former dining room of the house, so it is larger than the usual bath. That makes maneuvering a wheelchair much easier. Another nice feature of this suite is that directly opens to the kitchen to make it convenient for the occupants to access to the breakfast area. This is a popular suite due to the room and convenience.

Family Suite (6 Guests) — $159/night

We were able to create a three-bedroom suite on the entire second floor much the way the house would have been used originally by a family. The rooms are decorated with period antiques from New England. Each room has a queen bed with solid four poster designs. The rooms have oriental rugs and original painted Chestnut floors. The suite is ideal for a family traveling through the area because it can sleep up to six. The rooms are all generous sized bedrooms. One has the special bay window that was described for the Deluxe Suite. This room is designed so that the bay window becomes a sitting area.
