“Wonderful relaxing time, wanted to stay longer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went the last weekend of June 2013 to participate in the National Butterfly Count, an event the b&b fosters by kindly offering their farm road and pasture for counting and their front porch for meetings, not to mention their rooms for staying in. This is the 3rd year I've done this; but the count has been going on here for (I think) 18 years, always a weekend near the 4th of July. Pam and Ron are very friendly people with a penchant for 19th century design - the period of the house. The rooms are filled with quilts and old fashioned furniture, flowery wallpaper and lots of old books including novels, very wonderful to step into. The rooms are big, air conditioned, and comfortable, with high ceilings. The old house is very sound, for instance the floors and stairs do not creak; there is a lot of privacy in the arrangement of rooms. They have two buildings (plus barns), the main house and what they call the summer kitchen, a two-story brick affair that was built (I learned this time) by a movie company that shot a film there in the 1990s, as part of the story. This building can be rented handily by family groups. It's all very clean. Pam is a wonderful breakfast cook, and we ate very well. There is a back porch that opens onto a garden with a little fountain and many flowers, not to mention the dozen or so hummingbirds that visit the feeder. There's a river nearby that seems to have fish (i.e. people fish in it), and the hot springs are not very far, for instance Hot Springs Resort, and Warm Springs. There are some restaurants which Pam is happy to call to reserve for dinners. We had our project (butterfly counting), but if we had not had anything to do, we still would have been very happy doing nothing. This is a part-time working farm, with goats and chickens,ducks and geese that can be visited, great for children.

Room Tip: Reserve well in advance. They close in the winter. There isn't any internet service and our cell...

Thank you so much for your kind words. Ron and I have enjoyed hosting the National Butterfly count folks for many years. We are in the process of trying different internet options and equipment to make the internet farther reaching for our guests. The only cell phone service in Bath Co is Verizon, we do have a booster that allows guests with Verizon cell service.

We went for my birthday weekend and enjoyed it very much. The old house is in beautiful condition and the owners are wonderful. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, and you can rent a separate space with your own kitchen. We did not this time but might next time. My husband is a bird watcher and we took several hikes, I am a painter and had a chance to paint the views. The breakfast was wonderful with farm fresh eggs! Attached are several photos.

We were on a group hike in the Hidden Valley area near Warm Springs, VA and happened on this B&B on a 70-acre farm. The inn was basically closed but the gracious hosts, Ron and Pam, took us on a tour of the property including the barn, goat pin, natural spring house and historic inn itself. They served us goats milk hot chocolate, homemade goat cheese and crackers and almond cookies. The kids got to pet the sheep and goats were in heaven exploring the farm. We are definitely going back for stay during their season which is April to the end of October. Numerous great things to do in the area including hiking, hunting, trout fishing, etc. The house has been stunningly restored with ante-bellum furniture and could not be more charming. Definitely worth a visit.

Pam and Ron and their wonderful Inn gave us the refreshing time we needed. The setting, food, and beautiful mountains with excursions though the Jackson River watershed to Lake Moomaw were just the medicine we needed.

Rebecca and I wanted a couple days or serenity in the Virginia highlands and chose historic Bath county, much of which is George Washington National Forest, for an August 2012 visit.

We had four or five B&Bs to choose from, but decided on Hidden Valley B&B because of it's being on 70 acres tucked into the GWNF with the availability of numerous hiking/walking trails minutes on foot from the Inn. An added attraction was the Jackson River just five hundred or so feet away!

The house, circa 1848 and a wonderful example of Greek Revival which was popular at that time in the antebellum South, has been painstakingly and lovingly restored by the proprietors, Ron and Pam Stidham who acquired it in 1990 and have been there ever since. We spent quite a while talking with them both over the weekend and found them very genial and knowledgeable about the history of the house and the area.

The two full breakfasts that Pam prepared for us were outstanding. Our culinary interests and palates haven't been pampered like that in a LONG WHILE.

We had a lovely dinner in Warm Springs at the Water Wheel restaurant, and the second night picked up some take out and relaxed with the meal on the back porch of the Inn that is buffeted by a lovely flower garden and vista of the fields and mountain behind them. Lots of hummingbirds buzzing about as well which Rebecca adores!

Unlike some B&Bs, our mattress was extremely comfortable and the boxsprings quiet. The bathrooms have plenty of water pressure and abundant hot water. The rooms and hallways of the home are appointed with lovely period antiques that give the house a feel and appearance much akin to what it would have looked like in the Old South.

One of the most pleasant two-night sojourns we have ever undertaken, and we plan to go back and stay with them again. I believe they close in mid-November for the winter.

Historic b&b. Correctly restored and furnished, comfortable and squeaky clean, spacious and nicely landscaped grounds. A couple of minutes walk to Jackson River trails and trout fishing, along with the Hidden Valley wildlife viewing trail. Secluded and nestled in the George Washington National Forest, but close to the Jefferson Pools, the oldest developed hot springs in the US. and frequented by Thomas Jefferson, other springs near by. Hummingbirds galore during the day and whip-poor-wills at dusk.

Went for an overnight romantic weekend. The Inn grounds were beautiful, the inn itself was gorgeous and the owners were sweet and friendly. Hard to think of a more relaxing getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.And a great breakfast too!
