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 first and only farm-to- table 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.
“I cannot say enough good things about Allegheny Trail House. We were looking for a place that was small and safe to stay during these unprecedented times. We did a little research and came upon the trail house. We (my husband and I) are SO glad that we did! Jason, the innkeeper, was AMAZING! He chilled and talked with us and made us amazing custom breakfasts. We were the only guests there for two days and, on the last day, there were two other couples joining. They were kind and wonderful and it just was a perfect mix of atmosphere and people and VERY VERY clean. The home, itself, was built in 1865 (if I recall the plaque outside correctly) and was kept up impeccably! The artwork and furniture, etc. all suited the place very well and added to the relaxing feel of our time there, in general. 🙂 It was a very good deal, too! At only $95 a night for breakfast included, can't beat that! Thanks so much, again, Jason! We WILL be back. 5 stars! 5 5 5 5 5 5!!! :)”
