“George and I stayed here for a 3 night getaway. It was absolutely incredible. The inkeepers are leaps and bounds ahead of others. They are absolutely accommodating and beyond friendly and helpful. George and I will be back…” Jennifer, Trip Advisor Review, February 2016
About the Innkeepers
Sandra and Jeff Shaffer became the Innkeepers at the Hummingbird Inn in June 2015.
After 22 years of B&B stays and a passion to one day have their own, an amazing stay at a Provincial B&B in the Luberon Valley of Provence, France in 2014 convinced Jeff and Sandra it was time to live out the dream. They began looking for an inn. Their first visit to the Shenandoah Valley and the Blue Ridge Mountains in February 2015 immediately reminded them of Provence. A breathtaking 14 inches of fresh snowfall on the historic Hummingbird Inn clenched the deal. They knew this would be their new home.
Born and raised in Ohio, Jeff and Sandra met and spent most of their lives in Texas. Jeff is a general contractor and cabinetmaker by trade, and has built dream kitchens, bathrooms and remodeled homes for many families over the years. Sandra, a natural leader and event planner, spent the last 10 years in hospitality as House Manager for a private family and Spa Manager catering to Houston’s affluent. Together, Jeff and Sandra share a love for historic homes, food, wine and travel.
Both will tell you that guests are the best part of running an inn. Meeting new people and creating a memorable guest experience for each visitor is what Sandra and Jeff are all about. Being able to do it in a historic inn located in the spectacular Shenandoah Valley, with amazing beauty in ALL directions, is like a piece of Heaven – what a wonderful place to call home!
They invite you; welcome you and most importantly look forward to serving you. Stay as little or as long as you like and hopefully you’ll be back again! After all, it’s about you!
“We enjoy pleasing others; it’s who we are…” Jeff & Sandra Shaffer
