This 4 guest-room B&B has been restored to its original Victorian charm, but not in a "fussy" way. One feels completely comfortable and at home. The hosts are friendly without being intrusive, and Joyce's breakfast was simply superb. We didn't even think about lunch until well into the afternoon! We stayed in Abington b/c of the Barter Theatre, but we... More

We chose to return to Sheperd's Joy after a wonderful experience on our anniversary last year. We went to the barter as we did last year and enjoyed a lovely dinner in town. Breakfast was just as good this year as last, and we plan to spend our anniversary here next year again. It's a great getaway, peaceful, and charming.... More

My mother and I went to Abingdon and stayed at Shepherd's Joy for a short get-away treat for ourselves. The furnishings were charming and the food was delicious. I enjoyed all the special touches and the hospitality. We slept wonderfully. The only thing I regretted was not being able to see the sheep, as they were away so that the... More

While planning my business trip to Abingdon, I contacted Shepherd's Joy to enquire concerning their ability to host a business traveler. Joyce responded that despite the fact that they were busy preparing for NASCAR guests for the weekend race in Bristol, I was welcome. My scheduled arrival was planned for 6pm but I ended up arriving at 10:45pm. Both Joyce... More

Shepherd's Joy is a beautiful old farmhouse on a working sheep farm. Its setting is peaceful and quiet, even though it is only a short walk to all the attractions of downtown Abingdon. Our bedroom had windows on three sides, a lovely canopied bed, and an old clawfoot tub in the bathroom. Owners Joyce and Jack were extremely friendly and... More

Jack and Joyce are the most hospitable and gracious hosts. Their victorian home is beautiful and our room was very nice and clean. Joyce is a fabulous cook and made us a gourmet breakfast that was delicious. We will be back to Sherpards Joy!
