This was a relaxing, enjoyable and comfortable stay. Carol and Bernie couldn't be nicer and more accommodating! It was clean and comfortable with beautiful vistas from the porch. Carol made sure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. I would highly recommend this location to everyone!

We stayed at Riders Rest B&B in September 2012 on our trip back to Washington DC. Bernie is a great host and gave us a warm welcome. As we arrived early we expected to be told to go and wait somewhere, but not so, Bernie very helpfully let us get in and unpack straight away. He runs the place on... More

The bicycling in the area countryside was great! A good location to ride from and downtown Lexington has fabulous shops and restaurants. Bernie worked to meet our large group demands and the breakfasts were delicious with several choices. I really enjoyed doing my needlework on the porch after a hard day of riding.

Bernie was wonderfully accommodating to our party of 14 women. He fed us a delicious breakfast each morning so we would be fueled up for the ride! The B&B was clean, quiet and spacious. We rode our bicycles from the B&B for 3 days. Beautiful countryside and natural wonders created an ideal environment for riding. Thanks Bernie!!

12 ladies from various parts of West Virginia and two from North Dakota planned a bicycling trip to Lexington and stayed with Bernie for three nights and four days of cycling.

**I have no affiliation with this B&B or the owner** I am traveling on a great adventure through the South, with possible relocation to VA. I usually stay at hotels since I am a single female and tend to prefer the amenities they provide. Similar to another reviewer, I too came up wanting as I viewed the hotel options in... More
