THE ONLY B&B IN SHEPHERDSTOWN! Why drive 20 mins. or more? - walk to dining & shops from our Inn. In the heart of Historic Shepherdstown, West Virginia's oldest town, this restored 1868 federal style stately home offers six charming guest rooms with private baths furnished appropriately for the period. Guests may enjoy a complimentary tea or sherry by fireside in the inn's large living room, cozy library or treetop level outdoor porch. Enjoy a bountiful homemade full breakfast in either of the two dining rooms. There is a library with an extensive collection of reading material and a living room with TV/VCR and movie collection. The Inn is in walking distance of several locally-owned shops, fine dining and an independent movie theater. Shepherd University is just a few blocks away. Antietam Battlefield, Harpers Ferry, the C&O Canal path, river rafting, Charles Town race track, and outlet shopping are some of the area attractions you can explore.

Great place for a refreshing getaway - very clean and tastefully-decorated rooms, accommodating service, gracious hostess, and excellent location right in downtown Shepherdstown and within a few minutes drive of Antietam. Can highly recommend, and we would definitely stay here again!

Lauren, Sharon and I want to thank you for your hospitality last week. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves at the Inn and in your lovely town. We both look forward to visiting again and eating the delicious breakfasts you prepare. I would love more recipes. Everything you served was perfect and we appreciate the gluten free aspect of your cooking in particular. You could not have been more gracious.

We agree with the rating scale - our overnight stay was outstanding and we would stay here again! A quick tour of the inn and room by Lauren and we were on our way - just steps to the downtown shops. We returned later for evening cookies and tea/coffee and investigated the cozy library and upper porch. Room 2 was perfect for for us and will have to say the comfort of the bed and sheets was the best ever!! Hated to have to get up but the breakfast made it worthwhile!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thomas Shepherd Inn. Ours hosts were very friendly, food was excellent and room was very cozy. My only negative was the noise while sitting on the back porch. The inn sits at a 4 way stop and there was a lot of traffic. Having said this, you could not hear the noise inside the house. The house was very quiet. Also, it was an exceptionally busy weekend as there was an art festival going on, so I think the traffic was unusually high. In addition, it is an easy walk to many great restaurants and shops just blocks away. We will definitely go back.

I've just returned from a wonderful weekend in Shepherdstown, where I was completely spoiled by innkeepers Lauren and Dave at the Thomas Shepherd Inn. The furnishings are exquisite and the location is perfect (on the charming main street, very close to the fabulous Press Room restaurant, and just a 10 minute walk from the campus of Shepherd University). Best of all, the hospitality and food are amazing. Breakfasts include at least two courses: a starter smoothie or soup (apple soup and strawberry soup were even better than the mango smoothie) and then a gourmet baked entree, a side of fresh fruits or vegetables, and a side of local meat. Locally-roasted coffee is delicious and homemade muffins can be taken to go if you don't have room left after your morning feast. Thanks, Dave and Lauren!
Thank you so much for your kind words. It was our pleasure! Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Beautiful historic property, comfortable and in tip-top condition. Innkeepers get A+++ for hospitality. Delicious breakfast. A "Must Stay" if you are visiting this delightful town or are in the nearby area.

The inn was beautifully decorated, very inviting and quite comfortable. The innkeepers treated us more like family so it was difficult to leave when the time came. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Jim and Jeanne really pay attention to detail. They thought of everything to be sure our stay was a truly wonderful one. I highly recommend Thomas Shepherd Inn!
