Your review really fits the way many people warmly reflect on the true impact that Frontier Nursing has had... I am learning that FNS was more that just healthcare..it was part of a rich Appalachian culture that touches the hearts of individuals through the beauty of nature and the close bond between families and community. Growing up in Chicagoland, was... More

Wendover is set in the mountains. Beautifully light at night. Mary Breckinridge home is full of history. Great staff and delicious home cooked meals. Go enjoy the old world flavor and service. You will be glad you did.

Never in my lifetime would I have thought I could have slept in the Big House - Mary Breckinridge's home, but we did! Food was wonderful, tour was amazing, peacefulness invigorating. You must come stay a night or two and visit with Dusty Sparks (night watchman) during the evening hours.

The ninety year old home features hardwood floors, exposed log beam ceilings, and vintage glass-fronted bookcases that house literature of various titles. The bedrooms are laid out... More

This was our first bed and breakfast experience, and it was a lovely place full of history! Circumstances had us there during the winter, but we can't wait to plan another visit this spring when everything is in bloom. It was clean, and the breakfast was wonderful. The staff was a delight.
