Hello and welcome to the Inn at Antietam! We are Miriam and William Cunningham, the new owners, and we look forward to sharing our stories with you.
Miriam (me) is originally from Kentucky and moved to DC to attend graduate school in European History. William was born in England and moved to the USA after he finished university. A mutual friend introduced us while watching a world cup soccer match. We dated, we married, and we adopted our puppy: Stirling, an English Shepard collie dog.
We moved to Sharpsburg from Washington, DC, earlier this year, after living in the city for twenty-plus years. We love the District, but we were ready for something new and and different. Miriam wanted to run a bed and breakfast and William wanted chickens. So, here we are. William is continuing his employment as a program director for a conferencing company and Miriam will be making breakfast. Chickens still to come.
The Inn at Antietam is a beautiful old Victorian house, originally built in 1906. In 1983, it was first turned into a bed and breakfast. We are the third owners and we will continue the tradition of offering comfortable, pleasant accommodations with a delicious homemade breakfast. We are currently updating and renovating the suites while keeping the beautiful charm of the house, the garden, and the back fields. You can follow all the changes and renovations through this blog. We will also feature things to do in the area, not just the Antietam National Battlefield and National Cemetery which are our adjacent neighbors.
We hosted several overnight visitors for long term stays to our home in Washington and now we cannot wait to welcome you to our new home, the Inn at Antietam!
