The other reviews really do this place justice, so take a look. I had a wonderful weekend getaway, and am grateful for Lauren and Dave's hospitality. They were so helpful and great to talk to, but not intrusive. Accommodations were very comfortable, with lots of little extra conveniences (e.g., bathrobe, power strip, USB ports, night light) that I usually bring...

We would love to have you back! Thank you for your kind words. Glad you liked the multi port USB station, they're new. No more searching on hands and knees for a place to plug in your devices.

Lauren and David were excellent hosts! We stayed in room 6 for the night to celebrate our anniversary. The room was comfortable, the fireplace was warm and the bed was better than ours at home! Breakfast was delicious and the company was great. They had sherry ready for drinking and snacks set up in the sitting room. The location couldn't...

We have been patronizing the Thomas Shepherd Inn for close to a decade now, and are happy that the current owners - Lauren and Dave Duh - are maintaining the high standards that have characterized this historic inn on the main street of Shepherdstown. You can count on the usual amenities of Select Registry establishments - comfortable beds with fine...

My wife and I usually take a long weekend for our wedding anniversary, but this year our plans were foiled by expected weather issues. On a whim, we decided to do a quick overnight celebration in Shepherdstown so we could dine at the Bavarian Inn. Rooms at the Bavarian Inn itself were quite expensive without advance notice, so I looked...

This B&B was especially clean and welcoming. I complimented the owner on the fabulous bath towels...huge and soft. The breakfast was large and very well prepared; we finished full and happy. We only ate one breakfast at the B&Bsince we went to the Bavarian Inn for the big brunch on Sunday. We used the common rooms where there were cookies...

The innkeepers could not do more to make your trip more comfortable or more enjoyable. Lauren's gluten-free snacks are just delicious. The breakfasts are extraordinary!! There's always fresh fruit (poached pear, hot apple soup) and a yummy drink. Main courses can include frittata, apple pancakes or veggie strata (gluten free, of course) Fresh salad with French radishes (!), cheesy polenta,...

The innkeepers are so nice to our last minute booking request. We had a great time! The gluten-free breakfast is wonderful. We also loved the healthy snacks, various tea selection and board games. The town is beautiful during holidays. We had fun exploring the local farmer's market and holiday crafts market.

Recently had a delightful stay at Thomas Shepherd Inn. My friend and I were first time visitors to the area and wanted a destination with history. We stayed in room 4 . It was quiet and beautifully decorated as is the whole inn. Lauren could not have been a better hostess or more welcoming to us. Each morning we enjoyed...

While visiting Antietam Battlefield and other nearby historic sites, decided to stay at the Thomas Shepherd Inn. From my early evening arrival to departure the next morning, found it to be a wonderful place with a superb innkeeper. Located just up the street from several fine restaurants and other businesses. Will return here in the future!
