We stayed at the Inn for her birthday last fall. The weekend provided perfect weather so we were able to really enjoy this B&B's full charm. Memorable feature: eating breakfasts on the porch overlooking the sprawling river. Beautiful! The structure is a magnificent old home. Fans of new, ultra-modern spaces with every modern convenience should look elsewhere.
We went in early September, so I imagine this scenic river view only gets better with the autumnal color change. Nicely located in the middle of nowhere yet Frank Lloyd Wright's Kentuck Knob is less than one hour away and Morgantown is under 30 minutes.
The host was a genial and helpful chap, full of information about local places to visit, places to dine and historical sites. When we came back from a long day's events, we headed to our room. Outside the door we found a mini bottle of champagne with a few small cookies and chocolate. A small gift for her birthday that was appreciated and a memorable, kind touch that separated this place from the ordinary.
