This sweet gem is within blocks of the Barter Theater on a nice quiet street. We stayed in a front room that had amazing light with four lovely windows and beautiful period furniture. The bed was super comfortable. A wonderful breakfast featuring fresh fruit and French toast prepared with homemade bread baked by the very personable hostess, Joan. This helpful and talented couple also gave us suggestions for interesting local activities that we added to our day's events and gave us directions to a nearby cemetery so we could complete some family research. We had a great stay and would gladly return if we are in Abingdon again.

We brought six young children with us, ages 4, 7, 9, 10, 11, and 12. There were also six adults, and we used up the whole house! The owner bought our tickets ahead of time at the Barter Theatre for A Christmas Story, and it was so easy to pay her for our rooms and tickets at the same time. We found the B&B to be family friendly and great fun!

What a great stay. Not your everyday breakfast, fresh fruit from the local Farmer's Market and other local treats. Homemade English Muffins were a great touch too. Joan was a great hostess.

The breakfasts are the best thanks to Joan's homemade everything! We loved the pumpkin pancakes, strawberry scones, biscuits, and fabulous whole wheat toast. We had delicious fresh fruit from the local farmer's market everyday as well. Thanks Joan!

Our first B & B experience could not have been better! Joan makes "home" a place you can feel from the minute you walk in. Lovely home and area, peace & quiet, sleeping in a wonderful room, waking up to fresh coffee, and a breakfast explosion of local fare and flavor. What a great cook...thank you Joan! My sister and I look forward to getting back to the pampering and great conversations as well as another visit with out family. I left with a lovely and treasured coffee cup and some of Joan's homemade jam! SHAVERS has my high recommendation from the heart!

We love staying at Shavers of Abingdon, it is like staying with old friends. Joan makes the best scones we have ever had and the pancakes are wonderful. Being just around the corner from the Muster grounds makes it the perfect spot! If you love beautiful antiques, it is a must stay. Be sure to spend some time in the screened gazebo!

My husband and I enjoyed 2 nights of great food, clean, comfortable accommodations, and a charming hostess, Joan, during a trek to the Creeper Trail and Barter Theatre in Abingdon. Joan prepared our food from the freshest of veggies and herbs from the nearby Farmer's Market. Thank you for a wonderful trip! Sandy and Rorie

We invited 6 of our friends and spent the weekend with the Shaver's. Terrific food/wine/hospitality and the murder mystery was a huge hit with our group. Highly recommend this B&B.

Just came home from a wonderful weekend! Joan was a perfect hostess. We arrived a little late but was made to feel right at home by coming in the back door into the homey kitchen. She showed us our beautiful room ( Carolina Room) and surprised us with fresh flowers and chilled champagne! Breakfast both days was fantastic! My husband jokingly asked where was the gravy to go with the biscuits(we are from the south!) and the next morning she had made him gravy. After explaining why I could not eat her crepes and jam(diabetes) she filled my plate the next morning with things I could eat making sure not to "tempt " me with the forbidden food. The bed was comfortable, the entire house including the bathroom was spotless. We even had soft, fluffy robes for our comfort. A small fridge upstairs made sure we had plenty to drink at night if we became thirsty. Coffee was placed outside our bedroom door each morning with beautiful china cups to make us feel extra special. Thank you Joan and your "maintenance man" for a beautiful anniversary weekend! Greg and Tena Greear

We had a comfortable visit to this old Victorian home near downtown Abingdon. Upon arrival, we enjoyed a dip in the hottub and since we were the only midweek guests, we had it all to ourselves. This was followed by cheese, crackers, wine and good conversation with our hose Joan Shaver (she and her husband had the same first names as another couple we know). The Carolina room made for a quaint sleep after our night at the Barter and we were greeted in the morning by coffee outside our room and then an amazing breakfast!!! We would recommended this fairly affordable B&B to anyone.
