This was a great experience for my husband and I who are both restricted to Gluten Free diets. Justyn made a fantastic breakfast of farm-fresh eggs, local bacon and GF blueberry pancakes!
It was over-the-top excellent! The accommodations were charming, quiet, comfortable, and well-thought out. Lots of books and DVD's for viewing. The Manor is a work of love and creativity.
In the morning, the view was gorgeous. I enjoyed great tips about sustainable gardening and raising chickens --- my areas of interest. I highly recommend Mavis Manor.
- 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
