Today this wonderful old home – well known as the “Shaffer House” – still stands at 156 East Main Street. Registered as a historic property, it is finding new life as the Allegheny Trail House, Frostburg’s cycling hub, and bed and breakfast. The home is located in historic downtown Frostburg – within walking distance to the FSU campus, unique restaurants, shops and, yes, a “tavern” or two. Best of all, it is a short pedal from the Great Allegheny Passage, with the local trailhead situated just a half-mile or so from the B&B.
“If I could give this place more than 5 stars, I would. The house and my room were absolutely adorable, inviting, and comfortable. I wish I could have spent more than one night, but I was on a bike trip from Pittsburgh to DC. Jason was so friendly and helpful and kind. My (vegan!) breakfast was incredible and eating it on the lovely front porch was perfect. Jason also packed me a vegan lunch for my journey, and it was amazing. There was a safe place to lock our bikes. There were also games and tea and everything else you could want to feel at home. I'd love to come back one day.”
