This is a great little spot easily accessible to Washington, DC or Baltimore for a quick getaway. The layout is unique with guest rooms in separate buildings from the registration area and restaurant. It gives the place a quaint feel. The rooms are standard issue, but they do have small porches, some of which have a view of the Potomac River. Though the Inn has its own restaurant that looked quite nice (we didn't dine there), the town of Shepherdstown has several interesting places to dine along a quintessentially small town main street.
Our only complaint (albeit a minor one) is the that carpeted, public staircase in the building that housed our guest room was a mess. The property has either just completed or is in the midst of some renovation, and building materials were sloppily stored in the stairway that we used several times to access the ground from the second floor. Additionally, a potted plant had been upended with dirt scattered throughout this same carpeted staircase, yet during our 24 hour stay no staff member either observed the mess or bothered to clean it up. Just one of those details you would expect a high end property to be on top of.
