We loved the Thomas Shepherd Inn. Lauren and Dave made us feel right at home in their lovely and historic B&B.. Impeccably clean throughout and comfy--they've thought of everything, from the ice maker, glasses, and spring water in the 2nd floor reading room, to good quality towels and linens, to fast wifi and a power strip in the bedroom for...

Lovely waterfront town, very walkable. We enjoyed the Inn and its wonderful owners. Breakfast was outstanding with Gluten Free biscotti, muffins, then fruit with yogurt. All that followed by frittata, sausage and fresh side salad. I was so full, I skipped lunch. Everything is well done and the Inn is exquisitely maintained.

Lauren & Dave were very gracious hosts. Breakfast was spectacular, visually appealing and most certainly a labor of love. The Inn, as with the entire town, was filled with charming surprises - like the bedside candies and the board games in the sitting room - which together made for a very enjoyable stay. The area is rich with Civil War...

We stayed here for three nights recently. The inn itself is lovely and the guest rooms are spacious and clean. We stayed in room #6 at the back of the inn. Across the hall is a sitting room available to guests which opens onto a large, lovely open 2nd floor porch. The inn is conveniently located and within walking distance...

The proprietors were friendly and efficient. Rooms were lovely. enjoyed the coffee and baked goods and a newspaper waited for me early in the AM--and the full breakfast a bit later was delicious. Cookies and coffee in the afternoon, sherry in the evening. Close to plenty of restaurants. Would definitely stay again!

David prepared wonderful breakfasts of fresh peaches with raspberry coulis, honeydew in mint and lime, apple pancakes, and a mushroom frittata. My bed was very comfortable, and I enjoyed returning to the inn after a day of touring the Antietam battlefield and Harpers Ferry.

The inn is charming, comfortable, very clean and the atmosphere all around relaxing. Lauren and Dave are delightful hosts who do a fantastic job of making every guest feel very welcomed.

I cannot express here the totality of our experience but will give a few highlights. Lauren greeted us warmly and immediately assuaged my concerns about vegan food being available. That was so good to hear. Our room was lovely and we are enjoyed the many places to sit. We were across the hall from the guest lounge and porch which...
