You couldn't ask for a more convenient setting for a weekend out of town. The decor is charming and welcoming. I especially appreciated the parlor with sherry and occasional snacks in the evening. (Ask the host about the historical background on the sherry service.) The host is extremely solicitous; the breakfast suggests ambitious tastes, but she cares about what you... More

We were so pleased with our choice of this inn. From our first moment upon entering and meeting Lauren we were made to feel very comfortable. The room was inviting and charming and I must say absolutely immaculate ! Breakfast was a treat as was the coffee ready prior to breakfast. If we are in the area again,our first call... More

A classic historic B and B or rather small hotel. The rooms are special, and the attention to detail is superb. We stayed a night whilst cycling the C and O trail, and were very glad to arrive to a warm welcome after two punctures in a day, one crossing the bridge into Sheperdstown- muggins had to push his bike...

There are a few things that set certain proprietors apart from the pack, and the Thomas Shepherd Inn did this in spades. After another, to-remain-unnamed B&B in Harper's Ferry canceled on us at the last second, I contacted Lauren at the Thomas Shepherd Inn, and she was able to change things around to accommodate us. She stayed up late to... More

We stayed 2 nights in room 6 and couldn't have asked for more. The inn was impeccably clean and comfortable. Lauren, the innkeeper, was very attentive and even made from scratch pork sausage for our breakfast after I mentioned I did not like processed sausage. We enjoyed the conversations over the breakfast table and we will come back another time!

My husband and I stayed at the Thomas Shepherd Inn for two nights recently. What a lovely home. All areas were spacious, including the bedrooms, the breakfasts were excellent, and the hosts were friendly and helpful. There were lots of amenities--from anything you could need in your room to plenty of snacks and hot beverages in the large sitting room.... More

This is a beautiful, classic B&B, on both the outside and the inside, in our favorite West Virginia town, Shepherdstown! Our room was lovely, with nice and thoughtful features, a comfortable bed, and was beautifully decorated. We love that the bathroom had a number of racks and hooks for hanging towels and clothes, and a little shelf to put things... More

We booked most of the rooms here for our family reunion, making a long weekend of it, and using this as a base for visits to Antietam, Charles Town, Harper's Ferry, Virginia, and Shepherdstown. It is located within easy walking distance of most places you would want to visit or dine in Shepherdstown. Lauren and David have a lovely home,... More

The B&B retains its 19th-century charm but provides all the modern amenities. We had room 6 at the end of the upstairs hallway. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, with a seating area, a corner fireplace, good lighting for reading. The library is across the hall, with a small frig, cold water, a computer for guest use and access to a porch... More

I was in town just for one night to catch up with my cousin. I chose to stay at the Thomas Shepherd Inn on the strength of the reviews and its great location. Lauren was very helpful when I rang to book and gave me a discount on the published room rate because I was travelling solo. I received a... More
