With gas prices averaging $3.50 a gallon around here and closer to $4.00 in some parts of the U.S., vacationers’ thoughts turn to ways to stretch their gas dollars further while still taking a well-deserved vacation. A few days at a bed and breakfast can often provide good value for your dollar – starting your day with a hearty free breakfast and complimentary amenities like Wi-Fi that cost money at hotels.
Guests arriving at the Inn in Shepherdstown, WV, – just 3 gallons of gas from D.C., Baltimore, and much of Pennsylvania – can park the car at the B&B and spend a few days exploring the area on foot or bicycle. We are located on the main street of the historic small town and only one block away from downtown with restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual ethnic options, locally-owned boutiques, independent movie theater, and live music. Bicycles can be rented from Shepherdstown Pedal & Paddle or Blue Ridge Outfitters and used to explore Harpers Ferry via the scenic C&O Canal Path or the rolling farm vistas of Antietam Battlefield just a few miles away. You really don’t need to get back in your car until you’re ready to check out!
