We were in the area for a friend's wedding. A number of couples were staying here. It was a very nice place. High-marks all around, there really wasn't anything I'd change. Everything was well-executed. Bed was comfy, bathroom was modern, we didn't use the Wi-Fi or TV, but they were present. Had good 4G Verizon coverage too. Furniture and decorating...

We stayed in Shepherdstown as it is close to the Antietam Battlefield and Harpers Ferry, and we could not have chosen a better place - this is one of the best Inns that we have stayed in, if not the best. We had a warm, friendly welcome from Lauren and happened to be the only ones staying that night. Our...

Lauren and Dave were very hospitable. My wife and I enjoyed the proximity to Shepherd University and the downtown shops. Warm cookies at 3 pm, a very comfortable bed and well appointed room, and a super breakfast... couldn't have asked for more.

The inn is perfectly and delightfully furnished in a way that creates a warm and homecoming type feeling when you walk through the door. The welcoming atmosphere and Lauren as a perfectly gracious inn keeper are the perfect combination to make us regulars to this inn from now on. We are already scheming and planning future getaways that will take...

I spent two nights at the Thomas Shepherd Inn this past week. When I checked in, I requested to be moved to a room with a bath in the room and was immediately accomodated. My first room had a bath across the hall - don't get me wrong - it was lovely, but I get up numerous times in the...

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...

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.

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...

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!
