“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This was our first visit to Shepherdstown, we're glad we chose to stay at the Thomas Shepherd Inn and highly recommend it. The rooms are excellent (we stayed in #1), the breakfasts were superb, and the location perfect for walking to dinner and driving to local attractions.

My wife and I enjoyed a fantastic weekend at this historic B&B. The innkeepers Jim and Jeanne are hands-on managers who looked after all our needs. The rooms are well appointed, the breakfast delicious and creatively prepared, and the inn is perfectly located within easy walking distance of the center of Shepherdstown. Perfect for a romantic getaway, I strongly recommend this wonderful place.

This was our fourth visit to the Thomas Shepherd Inn and once again we had a perfect three day mini-vacation there. Sitting on their beautiful upstairs porch reading, looking at the garden, listening to music, talking, being able to walk to dinner and strolling their main street, we relax as in no other place. Jean and Jim are perfect hosts, friendly yet not intrusive. Breakfast is excellent, locally sourced ingredients of the highest quality shine in Jean's cooking. What more can I say....this is a great place!

This was my first visit to Shepherdstown, WV and of course the Thomas Shepherd Inn. I throughly enjoyed my stay at the inn. The room was so comfortable and the breakfasts were delicious. Jeanne and Jim were gracious hosts. I ended up spending more time at the inn and the downtown since the weather did not cooperate for biking the C&O canal. All the places that Jeanne recommended for dining were perfect. Look forward to visiting again! I would highly recommend the inn and exploring all the local spots downtown. A fun and relaxing getaway in spite of the rain!!!

We had another great time at the Thomas Shepherd! Jeanne & Jim are great hosts and I love what they've done with the room we had this time. Room 1 was 'under construction' during our last visit so we had to try it out this time.

Excellent choice! The room is really comfortable and the king bed is a dream.

The Thomas Shepherd Inn is one of the only B&Bs in the Shepherdstown area. We adored its charm and quirky touches in each of the rooms. Don't look for modern amenities... there is no TV in the room, and computer access is in a common room on the second floor. This did not stop my husband and I from enjoying each others company though. We put a puzzle together for the first time in a long time! Shepherdstown is a cute place to enjoy a nice dinner after a day spent in the outdoors (the AT is only miles away, along with the Antietam Battlefield). The only complaint we have is longing for more time in conversation with the owners. We also thought the price was a little high for what we got. Nonetheless, all in all a great time spent in one of our favorite spots in WV!

Thomas6, Owner at Thomas Shepherd Inn, responded to this review, April 24, 2013
We're glad that you and your husband chose our inn to reconnect with each other, and that you enjoyed our great little getaway town. Although we don't have TVs or telephones in the guest rooms, we do broadcast a wi-fi signal (at no charge) throughout the Inn in addition to the guest computer in the library and provide a television in the common living room. We are sorry that we didn't spend as much time with you as might have liked - we do try not to 'hover' over guests but we are always happy to sit down and chat if we know you want to, especially after breakfast with a nice cup of tea!

We really enjoyed our two night stay at the Thomas Shepherd inn several weeks ago. The inn is well maintained and furnished with beautiful period pieces, centrally located near the downtown area. The owners were friendly and helpful and quite knowledgeable about the area. They thoughtfully had coffee and tea ready before breakfast as well as tea and goodies in the late afternoon for guests. Room 6 was clean, cozy and quite comfortable with everything we needed. Breakfasts were incredibly delicious with creative presentations. Shepherstown is an amazing small town with excellent restaurant choices and interesting shops, and close to Antietam. Thank you Jeanne and Jim for a wonderful stay at the Thomas Shepherd Inn!
