I can't say enough about this wonderful B&B. Lauren and David are tremendous, warm and friendly and went above and beyond paying attention to every detail to make their B&B a model of excellence. The location is great (you can walk everywhere in town), parking was easy, everything was clean, comfortable and charming. The attention to detail is what blew... More

This is a wonderful old B&B in a great location. It is close to downtown and they provide a map and recommendations for restaurants, etc. They room was nicely appointed and the breakfast was delicious.

This review is written by a bicyclist, who had just gotten off his bike after a hot 50+ mile ride. From the outside the place looked pretty fancy (and indeed it was). However my fears were quickly put to rest by the most wonderful host ever. She seemed to actually cater to bicyclists and immediately put me and my spouse... More

This is one of the best Bed&Breakfast places we have ever been to! In the center of The historic and quaint town of Shepherdstown, WV. A stone's throw from Sharpsburg and the Antietam battlefield and the many wineries of Northern Virginia. However, the best part are the owners and the B&B!! Lauren and Dave are extremely friendly and very attentive.... More

Spent a weekend at this B&B. Plenty of available parking behind the inn. Greeted with a warm smile from Innkeeper Lauren. Very pretty common areas. Gluten free oatmeal cookies which melt in your mouth. Lauren and Dave are wonderful cooks and hosts. Breakfast was both hearty and healthy. Really great coffee. Freshly squeezed orange juice. recommendations they gave us for... More

Our opportunity to stay was regretfully limited to one night, but we fully enjoyed our stay there. The quaint inn is located within walking distance of the 11 downtown eateries in Shepherdstown, perfect for a short stroll and chance to hold hands. The well-appointed room was waiting after dinner, with very comfortable beds, and plenty of towels and robes provided.... More

I'd highly recommend the Thomas Shepherd Inn to anyone traveling to Shepherdstown. The Inn was well-decorated and had ample amenities - we were very comfortable staying in our room or hanging out in the parlor. Lauren and Dave provide plenty of snacks and drinks for guests, and the breakfast was phenomenal - healthy yet filling. Also couldn't beat the location... More

Thomas Shepherd's Inn is a very nice B&B located at the end of a quaint downtown area with lots of nice restaurants and stores to visit. The B&B is clean and comfortable and the owner was very pleasant, but not overwhelming. She had sherry, tea and cookies out in the evening and her breakfast was excellent.

I recently spent 2 nights in Room 2 at the Thomas Shepherd Inn and was favorably impressed with all aspects of my stay. My room and all public areas were beautifully decorated; both breakfasts were exceptionally tasty, generous, and well-presented. While I did not meet Dave, Lauren was most cordial and informative. I would definitely recommend this property to those... More

I'm so glad I chose to stay at this Inn over the chains in the area for my brief stay in Shepherdstown. The value added by the pristine rooms, freshly baked cookies, snacks, and sherry in the living room, beautiful cotton robes, plentiful large towels, gourmet breakfast, gardens and porches, make this so much more than just a place to...
