“West Virginia solitude”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2011

We knew this was the right choice when we stepped out of the car after the short drive from town. Standing by the car, there was not a sound to be heard. Just quietness. Perfect. It was worth being away from town where constant truck traffic can be heard from most places. Entering the house, we were immediately warmed by the rustic log walls, a nice contrast to the crisp air of a December day. Dale greeted us and appreciated that we were punctual, checked us in and gave a thorough review of the room and amenities. We stayed in the Wild and Wonderful room which although not large, was amply large and cozy enough for the two of us. The electric fireplace provided plenty of additional heat for us when needed. The inn is exceptionally clean. The jacuzzi tub was a great amenity and we enjoyed it. This room with the white walls is more modern than the adjacent Almost Heaven room with the exposed log walls and stone fireplace. We would love to go back and stay in Almost Heaven. We stayed two nights and took time to hike the land behind the house and enjoy the creek that cut between two hillsides. Breakfast both days was tasty, hearty, and simple: eggs, bacon, sausage, pancakes, biscuits and jellies with orange juice and tea and some fruit. Our bed was on the firm side and we like more padding, but that's our preference. Beds in other rooms probably vary. The costs are comparable to most places in Berkeley Springs from what I can tell. Added bonus here is you don't have "city" noises and traffic. The drive into town is quick and actually quite scenic if you take some of the alternate roads. Dale and Linda provided very hospitable and attentive service. We would stay there again.

While the place was clean and the owner was friendly, I can't recommend staying here. Now the negatives:

* The place is about 10 minutes outside of town. There are better places to stay in town that are cheaper and will allow you to walk everywhere rather than drive. Although pretty during the day, it is a dark, winding, dangerous drive at night.

* Breakfast was sub-par. Both days we were served overcooked scrambled eggs, biscuits (obviously from a can)/toast, bacon/sausage, and a nominal amount of fruit with bad coffee. There just wasn't a lot of effort here and the food was many notches below what I've had in other B&Bs.

* The air outside was in the 50s and 60s and about the same inside. We talked to another couple who also said their room was very cold. On top of that, when we went to use the jacuzzi, there was not enough hot water to fill it up.

* Very uncomfortable, SQUEAKY beds.

The only thing keeping this from a one-star rating is the cleanliness of the place. For half the price, this would be okay, but at the prices they charge, this is not even close to worth it.

We were on our honeymoon during the Apple Butter Festival, and my husband wanted rustic, peaceful, and relaxing. The Inn is just outside of town in a beautiful area. Dale gave excellent directions making it easy to find. The "Almost Heaven" room was just what we were looking for with its fireplace, rustic charm, and whirlpool bath. It was very clean and we were given personal instructions on the use of the facilities along with a folder full of information on the Inn, local restaurants, and activites. There was ample information available on local shopping, the history of Berkeley Springs, taking the waters, and local activities. Dale and Linda were always available for directions and advice on local restaurants, attractions, and activities as well. Breakfasts each morning were good and included personal service and friendly conversation. We are definitely returning when we come to Berkeley Springs again.

Beautiful area just outside of town. Wonderful hospitality, very clean and private area. The view was beautiful and drive back to the inn is enjoyable. We had a very welcoming experience by Dale, and Dana. We would certainly go back!

Room Tip: I highly recommend the carriage house! It's a home away from home. The bed was a little to firm...

We were just starting out in a new relationship and decided to try a bed and breakfast for a more intimate and romantic atmosphere. We checked out The Sleepy Creek Mountain Inn on line and found that the room "Almost Heaven" seemed to be what we were looking for. It was cozy and comfortable with a kind of rustic charm. We enjoyed our first night there in front of the fireplace having an indoor picnic. Dale and Linda were lovely host and hostess. They were there if we needed anything, but were very respectful of our privacy. Although we did not use the jacuzzi tub, the bathroom was very nice and clean and pleasantly decorated. The breakfast was very good and especially enjoyed the fresh fruit cups. Would certainly consider staying there again for a special weekend.

For our two year anniversary, my partner and I chose the Almost Heaven room at Sleepy Creek Mountain Inn for a two-night stay. Dale was very friendly and happy to offer some excellent recommendations for dining and shopping. The room was cozy and clean, and the fireplace was nothing if not inviting. A delicious breakfast both mornings, accompanied by some good conversation. The inn is located in a secluded area overlooking some fantastic scenery, including more deer than we could count.

The one complaint we had was that the jacuzzi tub was far too noisy. Because of this, its use is restricted to before 10pm.

Sleepy Creek Mountain Inn was the perfect location for our romantic getaway.

We stayed two nights in the Carriage House. Quaint, cute, and with enough privacy for a nice romantic getaway. Clean and well kept. Homey touches, like the Hummel figures in the bedroom, and a novelty lamp in the bath are welcoming. The jacuzzi tub is large, with plenty of room for two, but not as powerful as I would have liked. The bed is firm, yet comfortable. The kitchenette is adequately equipped for a simple meal, however, the very small size of the sink makes it hard to wash the pots and pans. Overall, a pleasant stay -- pleasant enough that we booked a return visit while checking out.
