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.
“We showed up rather late (around 6:30) on a Saturday night after suffering a broken spoke, flat tire, and loose bottom bracket on the way there from Cumberland. Jason was there waiting, ushered us up to our nice room, and made us feel welcome. The best words out of his mouth, however, was “ I can fix that”, after learning about our crippling bike failures. He had my spoke replaced, wheel trued, and bottom bracket re-greased and tightened before breakfast. Saved our trip. Oh, and besides that the room and breakfast was great! 5 stars!!”
