Loved this place as a home base in Shepherdstown. We stayed in Room 1 which is perfect for a couple desiring privacy. Lauren and David were informative and friendly, without being intrusive. In-room fireplace was perfect for a cold February day. Breakfast was delicious. David's recommendations for things to do and restaurants were spot on. Room was spotlessly clean and comfortable. Would stay no other place in Shepherdstown.

We went with another couple over Veterans Weekend. The innkeepers-Lauren and David were very friendly and their hospitality was superb. The rooms were welcoming and the breakfast was amazing. The best breakfast we have had at any B&B.The common area living room was very large and could accommodate several groups. We look forward to returning and would highly recommend this place.

My wife and I enjoyed a two night break at this Select Registry inn in Shepherdstown. The inn is well located, a block off downtown, and lived up to our expectations from a Select Registry inn ( we have stayed at a number of these inns in recent years): the property is very well maintained, the breakfast was just right and we got to chat with some of the other guests. Shepherdstown is a great location for visiting Harpers Ferry and Antietam, plus there are opportunities for outdoor activities. We wish the weather was a bit warmer!

We're so happy that your first B&B experience was a good one. It's been our experience as innkeepers that the conversation is always interesting and the stay always unique. Keep enjoying the experience. We're glad we got you off to a good start. Thank you.

This was a great place to stay right at the top of the street and within easy walking distance to the restaurants and shops in downtown Shepherdstown, and just a block or so from the University. The hosts were wonderful and great at making us feel welcome. The breakfasts were wonderful and they would go out of their way to make sure you got what you needed. I highly recommend.
