“The Shepherd Mountain Inn was our base for this trip….. We stayed in room 54 that was a two room Jacuzzi suite that was very clean, roomy, and very comfortable. This room cost less than you'll pay for a room in some of the hotel chains and was so much more than what you get there…. We have been in the area before, but had never stayed here until we read some reviews and wanted to try it. We are so happy we did and will be going back anytime we're in the area.” -- Home Away From Home on the Ozark Trail
“Thanks. Great little motel. Can’t wait to tell others about you. As clean as a whistle, so pleased I stayed.”

"We chose Shepard Mountain Inn for our work crew accomodations. Property was perfect, it had a variety of rooms - we had a family suite down to some single rooms. Rooms were comfortable and clean, as well as quiet. Right in the middle of some beautiful parks to explore. Several restaurants you could walk to, as well as grocery store right across street. Had the pleasure of meeting owners and their son, they were great! We had seven rooms for about a week and half- any requests anyone had was met, plus some many times!! Would highly recommend this property anytime you are in Arcadia Valley area." -- Great Small Town Find
