Due to covid my fiance and I had to redo our entire wedding. We chose Shepherd's Inn because it has a beautiful gazebo and covered back patio. We were able to have the ceremony at the gazebo and dinner on the patio. Drew, Jessica, and staff did an amazing job to make our day do special. They were friendly, efficient, and thorough. This is an excellent spot for any small gathering.

This is a grand old home with classic features and details... but the first thing you notice when you drive up is that the exterior paint is cracked and peeling. It has all the potential but needs the investment in renovations which are yet to come. I booked their best room. It was elegant and orinigial. So original that this room does not have a television. The bathroom is very original as well . But no soaps, shampoos or toiletries. The bed was lovely and a true period piece. The air conditioning are teo window units and 2 over head fans. They cooled the room well but they are noisy. I want to live this place but I felt like I was staying at a renovation in process.

This is an elegant & beautiful home, with many original finishes. Heidi, the innkeeper, was phenomenal! She went above and beyond to make sure we were happy and comfortable. The Marjorie Ellen suite had an amazingly comfortable bed, albeit super squeaky. The room does lack privacy and ability to darken the room, utilizing all sheer lace curtains and the shower was awfully small, the shower curtain clings to wet nakedness, which is something I detest, though the bathroom itself is large and accommodating. All in all, we'd stay here again.

We were greeted warmly when we arrived at this stately Victorian home, now a bed and breakfast in Washington,PA. Our room had a canopied bed that was so tall that movable stairs were provided to make it easier to crawl into. After settling in we headed downtown for dinner at the President’s Pub which Heidi, the manager, recommended. She seemed surprised that we planned to walk the 3/4 miles to the tavern but it was a nice way to see the campus of Washington and Jefferson College. While the food at the tavern was good, the drinks were better! After a very restful night we awoke to the smell of fresh baked biscuits! Delicious with lovely elderberry jam. Coffee was excellent. Our stay was very brief as we needed to get back on the road but we were well looked after at this Inn.

My husband had to go to Washington PA for a work-related event and instead of staying at an anonymous hotel, we love to check out historic B&Bs. Tim and Rose, the owners, could not have been nicer people: welcoming, accommodating, and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed in the Kaylee room which has a beautiful 4-poster bed and seating area. The whole place is stuffed with antiques and victoriana, so if you like looking at old photos and antique dolls and figurines, this is definitely the place for you. Tim and Rose accommodated a ridiculously early breakfast time request and the meal was filling and delicious: fresh fruit, stuffed french toast, sausages, juice, and coffee. They even let me take a piece of french toast home! The reason I say in my title "grab it quick" is because Tim and Rose are going to be retiring, and I believe Tim said that the place would be sold in June! (2019) He hopes it will stay a B&B--and so do I. It's a lovely place and extremely convenient to the downtown area (a 15 minute walk) and the university. But if it remains a B&B it will have new owners, who I hope are as lovely as Tim and Rose are. So check the web site for availability--it'll still be open for the next couple of months so I don't want to dissuade anyone from stopping in. It will be your chance to experience this lovely place--and the kindly hosts--before they retire and spend time with their grandchildren! Don't miss it!
