The hotel is a very unique venue in West VA. Located blocks from downtown Shepherdstown and steps from the Potomac River, it's a perfect one night destination. Their infinity pool is comparable to most 4-5 star resorts with the view of the river. Rooms are comfortable but the bathrooms need to be updated. The service is very friendly, exaclty what... More

Enjoyable stay in a nice European style environment overlooking the Potomac River. The new infinity pool and pool bar was so wonderful and the bartender was fantastic and accommodating. The room was nice as was the large bathtub; however, the room that we had reserved was unavailable. All was outstanding except for the rigidity of a few of the staff... More

Dear Valued Guest, Thank you for your comments. We are glad for the most part you enjoyed your stay with us. To address your concerns, I apologize that the front desk wasn't more informative. Truthfully, all the restaurants in town (except for convenience stores and fast food) usually do close before 9 pm. In addition we do offer late check-outs... More

The property is beautiful--you feel as if you've stepped into an old European town! The staff is first rate. Our package included wine in the room; when we arrived, it was not the wine we had ordered. My husband called the desk as we were headed out to the pool. Before we got across the parking lot, one of the... More

We frequently vacation here, but had not visited since they finished the infinity pool. It was a total delight! The food continues to be wonderful - we had a great dinner ( the sour beef is the best anywhere). We always enjoy breakfast in the main dining room. we will be doing more get-away here in the future.

Upon arrival we were pleasantly greeted by staff. We had a room that had a wonderful view of the river. We enjoyed a cocktail at the infinity pool area. We did not swim since it was raining on and off. Dinner at the Rathskeller was wonderful. We had wonderful service and the food was amazing. The next day we had... More

8 years going strong for our annual wedding anniversary trip to this lovely place! The hotel is charming and family run. Staffed mostly by well mannered college kids on their summer break and some long term employees. The infinity edge pool is brand new and has a great outdoor bar with modern food. The dining room is more old world... More
