The space

A two-story modern brick home situated in the backyard of the historic Michael Yeasley House. The guest house abuts the main house along a common patio in the rear.

Newly refinished wood floors throughout the public spaces and master bedroom. Fresh paint throughout. Carpet in the second bedroom. Two full baths with all of the amenities: one with a large soaker tub and the other with a shower. New beds, bedding, and towels. Large laundry room with iron and ironing board. Kitchen is stocked with cooking implements, plates, utensils, and spices.

The 1789 main house is being restored by Mr. William Stanton. You might see him in the shared side yard while he's working on a restoration project. He's a West Virginia native and a great resource for local ghost lore.

Access to the entire guest house, parking, front yard with an al fresco dining area and Weber grill, and a fenced shared side yard and back patio with lounging chairs.

Interaction with guests

We may not be there when you visit, but there's a caretaker named Mr. Stanton working to restore the main house during the week who can help you with anything that you may require during your stay. Mr. Stanton is a West Virginia native, an avid outdoors-man, father, and grandfather. He also has watched every episode of Ghost of Shepherdstown and is an now an expert on local ghost stories. His black Cherokee can sometimes be spotted parked behind the garage.

Other things to note

This historic main house was built in 1789 and is located on German Street. The original owner, Michael Yeasley, was born in Germany and served in the American Revolution as a member of a German battalion from Pennsylvania. He moved to Shepherdstown in 1785 and built the large stone house on German Street where the toy store is now. In 1798 he procured four bells from Germany for the Christ Reformed Church and had them transported here by ox cart. The bells are still there.

The main house also includes an infill property built by poet and congressman Henry Bedinger in the 1820s. Here's his Wiki page: (URL HIDDEN)

What a treat to stay in such a lovely, comfortable house.

The location of this home is wonderful. Walking distance to all the main street shopping & dining experiences. Off street parking was a plus as was the easy check in to the home.

Amy's house was very inviting and clean. The beds were super comfy and it was in such a convenient area to historic shepherdstown. You could walk to everything!

This house was the PERFECT spot for me. Quiet but close to everything in town. I grew up in Shepherdstown and to have a place to stay in town was awesome. I highly recommend Amy and this house.

We had a wonderful stay in Amy's house. It is even nicer and more spacious than it appears in the photos, and is set up very well for a group. There were six of us, including a 1 year old, a 5 year old, and their grandparents, and we had a very comfortable stay. The house is right off the main street in Shepherdstown (very convenient to the university) and it was great to be able to run out and grab anything we needed without having to load into the car. We cooked all of our meals in the house, and the kitchen is well-equipped for meal prep. There is a nice farmer's market at the end of the street on Sunday! The private back yard is BEAUTIFUL (even nicer than in photos) and was a terrific place to start the day with coffee or end with a glass of wine. Highly recommend Amy's house!

We loved it here! The location was amazing, just walk around the corner and you have access to everything Shepherdstown has to offer. The house is completely lovely, and Amy was very accommodating of our travel schedule. We will definitely stay here again the next time we are in Shepherdstown.

This home is better than described. It was clean, well appointed, quiet, and roomy. Downstairs there is a huge living room, a full bath, and an eat-in kitchen with a table for at least 6 (maybe 8?). Upstairs is another full bath, a bedroom with two full beds, a twin bed in the enormous hallway, and a master bedroom with a king bed. Off the master is a smaller room with two beds: a twin and small bed perfect for a child. Upstairs there is also a laundry room and one or two closets off the hallway that are large enough to accommodate someone on an air mattress. Needless to say, my wife and I, my mom, and our two girls (aged 3 and 1.5) were very very comfortable. The best thing about the house is that its shelves are slam full of books, and I'm not talking cheap, worn-out paperbacks. I'm talking contemporary authors for a wide array of literary tastes. You can tell that the hosts are well read, interesting people. The home has been beautifully restored, and it is literally seconds away from German Street, where you can find nearly everything Shepherdstown has to offer, from a great independent bookstore to high-end cuisine. My only suggestion is to make certain that you have a good GPS or good directions to the home before arriving. We arrived after dark and the Verizon cell tower was down. We couldn't use the GPS on our phones, we couldn't access email, and our phones wouldn't let us call anyone for help. The side streets, while totally safe and quiet, are very dark. If we'd been prepared or could have predicted the cell tower outage it wouldn't have been much of a problem. But we were literally "in the dark" for some time before finding the home. DIRECTIONS: The address if 123 West Back Alley. When working, our GPS spelled it Aly. The home is located exactly between South Church St and South King St. If coming from the west on German Street turn right onto South Church St and take the next left into the unmarked alley. The home is on the left behind a small garage and down a small hill at the end of the driveway. The numbers 123 are on the garage door in gold. There is a brick home across the street on the hill. If coming from the east on German Street turn left on South King Street at the public library. Take the next right into the unmarked alley. The home is on the right behind a small garage and down a small hill at the end of the driveway. The numbers 123 are on the garage door in gold. There is a brick home across the street on the hill. We would love to return to Shepherdstown, and we would absolutely rent this home again. It's probably the best home we've ever rented through AirBNB.

I'm a West Virginian by way of Houston, Los Angeles, and DC. Southern at heart, I love to host intimate dinner parties for friends. Long drives in the beautiful West Virginia countryside is one of my favorite past-times, along with shopping and home decorating.
