“Last minute perfect!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

We called at the last minute, but could've sworn our stay had been planned for days. The beautiful suite was warm and comfortable. The guest living room was equipped with a generously stocked Keurig center, extremely comfortable sofa and big screen TV. The breakfast was wonderful, but our gracious hostess topped everything when she packed a to-go bag of the best coffee cake muffins in the world and a jar of homemade pepper jelly. Thanks, Sawson, they hit the spot as dessert later that night and breakfast the next morning!

Room Tip: The Sage Blossom Suite has a private bath.

My husband and I had a wonderful 3 days at the Ambrosia Inn. Sawsan Galal was the consummate host, initially assisting in our vacation plans but later when I became ill, giving me an herbal tea remedy to settle my stomach. Thank you for your care.

Room Tip: We were upgraded to a large suite which was magnificent.

This location was perfect for an annual weekend getaway for four longtime girlfriends. Our hostess provided impeccable service in the most luxurious of accommodations. Perhaps the only thing that could top this B&B's beautiful yet comfortable decor and historic charm is its friendly owner's culinary expertise. Never have we enjoyed a better breakfast. Chef Sawsan Galal's made-to-order farm fresh eggs, fresh fruit, homemade jams, jellies and breads, pancakes with balsamic fruit topping, and her delicious percolated or french-pressed coffee made us feel like royalty. The location is only minutes from outdoor adventure, so our delicious breakfast fueled us for a wonderful guided climb in the nearby New River Gorge. When we were ready to relax, The Ambrosia's indoor and outdoor common spaces were exactly what we needed for quality girl time. One of our party was slightly apprehensive when we learned the B&B is home to a couple of cats. She has a cat allergy, so she brought plenty of medication. She never needed to take it! The Ambrosia Inn's lovely hardwood floors and extreme cleanliness, combined with the fact that the cats are prohibited from the bedrooms, eliminated any need for concern. Overall, our best annual girlfriend getaway ever!

Room Tip: Our party used the two smaller rooms on the second floor. Both rooms were comfortable, quiet, and be...

My husband and I stayed 3 nights at Ambrosia Inn. It was such a delightful experience that we will definitely stay there again. Ambrosia Inn is a beautiful, historic home that Sawsan (the proprietor & chef) has tastefully decorated and made into a fabulous Inn. From the moment Sawsan greeted us, to the moment we left, we felt like we were with family. Sawsan's hospitality is over-the-top. She does everything she can to make you feel welcome, and 'at home.' The room we stayed in was beautifully decorated (The Marigold Room) and spacious. Its 2-sink, large bathroom with a tub/shower was wonderful- right next to the bedroom. It was conveniently stocked with many toiletries, hair dryer, and cotton robes, too! Right down the hall, is a community area where you can watch television, serve yourself coffee/tea, eat snacks, or sit and read a book. And Chef Sawsan's breakfast was amazing! Be prepared... first she serves a variety of pastries that she bakes fresh each morning, and home-made jams. Next, comes individual fresh, mixed fruit cups. Then, when you think you couldn't possibly eat more, she asks how you like your eggs prepared. The eggs are served with her delicious mix of potatoes, and local fruit/vegetables. She even makes her own breakfast sausage! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ambrosia Inn, and look forward to the next time.

We stopped at the Ambrosia Inn on our way to NC. It was an unforgettable experience. Sawsan Galal welcomed us upon arrival. She showed us around her beautiful home and made us feel welcome. The second floor has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths (the Sage Blossom Suite where we stayed has the bath inside the suite and also a private balcony area to sit and enjoy the weather). There is also a very comfortable living room area with a wide screen TV, a microwave, a Keurig selection of teas and coffees, and a small frig with a selection of beverages. The bed in our suite was so comfortable, and every room in the Inn is impeccably clean. Sawsan sees to every need including an extra toothbrush or razor! The breakfast the next morning was exquisite. Sawsan serves several courses in a very leisurely manner, and each course is homemade and exceptionally delicious. We enjoyed talking with her as we ate our breakfast; she has many interesting stories. We hope to make this a regular stop on our frequent trips to NC...and YOU should TOO!

This incredible B&B is a destination in itself! It is on a small hill, surrounded by 4 acres of grounds. The stone mansion is a luxurious B&B owned and operated by Sawsan Galal, a Boston-trained chef (Classic French cuisine!). The entire 2nd floor consists of a fully-equipped living room with fridge and coffee tea station, snacks, etc. The two smaller rooms are cozy, with great 4-poster beds, and the master suite is similar, simply more luxurious with a connected bath.

The breakfast was enough for the day! Everything was made "from scratch," and to order -- with the innkeeper magically transformed into a French Chef!

Don't miss it if you're in the area! In fact, make it a point to go there for a rest!
