The Nancy Shepherd House Inn Bed and Breakfast in Old Town Winchester VA, now a fully licensed historic hotel, is one of several early federal period inns that once lined the streets of downtown Winchester, Virginia.
It is now, once again, available for events and overnight guest accommodations. The Nancy Shepherd House Inn is a rare surviving example of an early Old Town Winchester tavern & inn, currently in operation as a B&B. It is right downtown in Winchester’s historic district, with quaint shops, gourmet coffee houses, pubs, and fine restaurants all within easy walking distance. If you would like to stay right in Old Town Winchester, consider the Nancy Shepherd House Inn!

On your trip through Winchester, look for this old

The Nancy Shepherd House Inn is certainly no ordinary "historic" inn or hotel. It is the real deal, a rare find anywhere, a true historic early Virginia tavern. It has been properly restored without undoing its "essence of old", and is filled only with authentic early American furniture, and with real artifacts found on-site during the restoration.

If you are visiting the Shenandoah Valley for its Civil War battlefields and historic sites, vineyard and winery tours, or for one of our great local festivals, the Nancy Shepherd House is absolutely the most interesting of historic places to stay in the Valley.
