Highacre Cabin

Highacre Cabin is located at 200 Church Street, Harpers Ferry, WV. There is drive-up access to the cabin, and it is within 30 feet of the Appalachian Trail and a short walk to the historic downtown area.

The house offers beautiful views of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers and Harpers Ferry beyond the ruins of St. John’s Episcopal Church.


In addition to being located 30 feet from the Appalachian Trail, there is nearby access to the Maryland Heights Trail offering views of the town.

On December 21, 2019, a train derailment destroyed a portion of the pedestrian footbridge across the Potomac River. As of July 7, 2020, the bridge has reopened.


As a modern cabin, Highacre has running water, electricity, and a full bathroom.

Outdoor Fires

There are no outdoor fires permitted on Highacre property, but there is an outdoor grill.
