“Just perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2007

The lodge was beautiful, comfortable, impeccable and full of resources. Our hosts not only helped us plan a 13 mile hike along North Fork, but were so generous as to drop us off at one end. We camped on the ridge and hiked out. Then, relaxed at the inn, indulged in the gourmet food/wine, calming hot tub, and cozy bed. The views from the inn are breathtaking. The homemade cookies are to die for. The area has ample sources for adventurers (hiking, mountain biking, climbing, rafting) and the inn is the perfect place to recover from all your adventures. We can't wait to go back.

My wife and I spent this past weekend in a “get-a-way” weekend. I made the arrangements, and she only knew we were going to an “undisclosed location.” I did promise that Dick Cheney would not be there! I chose a B&B in the Potomac Highlands called North Fork Mountain Inn. I could not have chosen better. Waking up in the morning and looking out on a mountain view that takes your breath away cannot be valued. The breakfasts were not only gourmet, but hearty as well. There were hiking trails right from the Inn, and great hiking and viewing spots within a short drive. We went up to Dolly Sods, a high windswept plateau that makes one think they are in upper Canada.

The inn keepers Ed and Carol made you feel right at home. Dinners were offered for a very reasonable price for the quality. Saturday night there was a wine tasting to prepare one for the multi coursed meal. If you want to spend your day hiking or just sitting on the porch in a rocker reading a book, this is the place for you.

From the beautiful drive up the mountainside on Smoke Hole Rd., it is apparent you are getting to someplace special. The Inn sits off this road up a car accessible curved driveway, and rests on the mountainside with spectacular views in every direction.

The Inn is an attractive log building, with large front porch, screened back porch and a separate cabin below. Upon entering, you are in the living room, which boasts beatiful decor, comfortable seating, large fireplace and inviting atmosphere. We were greeted by Carol Fischer, the proprietor, who gve us a tour of the Inn. There is the main floor living room, the basement "map room" which has satellite tv, pool table, and many maps and info about the area.

The guest rooms are all different, but beautifully decorated and with large opening windows to enjoy the view and sounds of nature. All are immaculately clean, as is the entire Inn.

Carol and her husband Ed are the owners, hosts and chefs extrordinaire. Breakfasts and dinners we had were fantastic. Ed and Carol have thought of so many small details to make this feel just like a home away from home. Their warmth and attention to guest needs is amazing.

There is abundant wildlife to observe, and excellent hiking right from the Inn, and even a hot tub to relax in afterwards.

This is a unique and wonderful place we highly recommend and can't wait to return.

For a place of total rest and tranquility, this is it! Carol and Ed, the Inn keepers, are not only world class cooks but also cater for every possible need. We felt most welcomed and plan to return often. The walks up the moutain side connect with a 27 mile mountain top trail.

The rooms all have great views of the famous Smokey Hole. The porch is a great place just to sit, read and rock away in one of the many rocking chairs.

Downstairs is a pool table and large screen TV.

Best of all are the meals. Breakfast begins with a gourmet fruit cocktail followed by an egg omelet made to order. Excellent coffee and tea.

Supper are extra and by request and absolutely first class.

A lovely drive down the mountain side reveals many places to go fishing and some flat places for biking. Nearby is Seneca Rock for rock-face climbing.

We just returned and can't say enough about this inn. It is a good ways out of nowhere, but well worth the drive. The setting on the hill, the variety of wildlife, and the spectacular inn was more than we expected. But the highlight was the time with the hosts. Ed and Carol have a gift for what they are doing. They made everyone feel so at home and spoiled us rotten with great food and a peaceful atmosphere. We also had a great drive and a wonderful hike up their mountain. If you love great food, great views, and great rooms, then you will love North Fork Mountain Inn. I suggest the southern route in, if you can, as it winds along the southern branch of the Potomac River and through rock canyons. Call the Inn today and book your weekend, it will be worth it!

To celebrate our 10th anniversary, my husband and I enjoyed a wonderful night's stay at North Fork Mountain Inn! Getting away to a B&B is our absolute favorite "date," and this inn quickly became our new favorite B&B-quite an accomplishment. The location could not be beat...with national forest on all sides, with no one to see or hear as we looked out from our private balcony, it was exactly what we were looking for as a relaxing change of pace. As we lay in bed at night, we could look out the window to watch the stars...without city lights (or any lights, for that matter!), the stars were stunning! The log architecture of the inn was spectacular...perfect for that setting, fairly new, well-built...attractive in every way. Carol, the innkeeper, was extremely warm and hospitable...an excellent cook and helpful in many ways. The numerous special touches throughout the inn were much appreciated. We could have spent days and days there!!!

My wife and I just returned from a long week-end at
North Fork Mountain Inn and I must tell you it is a little
bit of heaven tucked away in the mountains of West
Virginia.It is a bit of a drive for those of us in Indiana but well
worth the trip.
The owners Ed and Carol were most gracious even though
we arrived a little later than expected.
The room we had was called the 'Eagles Nest' and had a
beautiful view of nothing but forest. And the entire time
we were there the only sound we heard was the wind in the trees.
The room was spacious, the bed was wonderful, and the
bathroom was clean and quite adequate.
There was a lower game room for pool, movies, cards
and games.And the gourmet evening meals far exceeded
our expectations. Absolutely the best clam chowder and
crab cakes we have ever had. Each and every meal was
a delight and certainly generous in portion.
A gem in the woods well worth finding. We will go back.

Stayed May 2007
