My boyfriend and I recently visited the Mavis Manor on our drive back to Chicago from North Carolina. We were looking for something a bit different from your typical Hampton Inn, Best Western, etc. This was perfect! We arrived past the check in time but it was no problem at all. Justyn and Lisa greeted us with open arms and had hot tea waiting for us. We were given a great tour of the house - amazing history! Although our trip here was just a short night, we definitely plan on coming back! It is a beautiful house, extremely clean, great art and Justyn made us an amazing breafast in the morning. The house sits on 33 acres, so in the morning we walked around the grounds to visit the horses, cows and roosters. This was a great experience - thanks!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Mavis Manor is Southern West Virginia Premier Sustainable Farmstay Retreat. The 1897 Queen Anne Victorian Country Manor situated on 33 acres nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Located in the small hamlet of Flat Top, WV, a small town that is also home of Winterplace Ski Resort. We specialize in Farm to Fork localness. Our growing sustainable farming practics include our flock of 75+ happy chickens. Our fluffy English Angora Rabbit named Chewy. The locally famous Sylvia Smackers (She’s a pig! But shh… I’m not sure she knows that yet). On the grounds we focus mainly on permaculture, like our fruit forest, but also include traditional gardening styles as well. What we doesn’t grow on ground we take every possible stride to purchase locally. We offer an escape from your hectic lifestyle. The guest rooms have smart, eclectic styling, historic southern charm, and 21st century sustainable thinking. Minutes off of I-77, located between Bluefield and Beckley and ideal halfway point from the Great Lakes to the Carolinas. ... more less
