“FABULOUS WITH DRAWBACKS”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013 via mobile

Fabulous, modern , well appointed , spacious and clean rooms/baths. Comfy beds and great shower. Judy welcomed us with open arms and shiwed us around. even wrote directions for where we were going. very sweet and hospitable but she lives offsite.It was a warm night and the central AC was not on and we didn't know whom to contact. Finally figured out how to use the remote to keep the fan on and the light off. Didn't want to open windows because there were no screens and we were afraid of bugs. Would've been a great night had the AC been on. No breakfast. Not a true B&B. Self-serve modern kitchen. There was fresh fruit and muffins, a stale box of Cheerios but NO coffee. We ended up going out for breakfast. This place could be a total 10 if they addressed the above issues. Don't mind the self serve breakfast but didn't expect to have to brew the coffee.

As I am writing this...I am actually thinking about ....not reviewing this...so no one else discovers this hidden gem.....but alas......here goes....

Wonderful guest house located in Hinton West, Virginia. Sleepy little town, with lots of small town charm. Wish we had more time to explore the town and the area.
We LOVED this home! We were fortunate enough to have the whole house to ourselves. This home had it all (except a fireplace). Many thoughtful amenities not typically found in guest houses.
Quality abounds in this home from the time you step through the door.
This home would be ideal for "girls weekend" or for family reunions, etc. Bedrooms (which are really suites) provide lots of privacy if needed.
.
Reservations and check in were especially smooth.
We are seasoned travelers and have stayed in some of the finest hotels and inns in the world....this is a real find!
We are trying to find a way to enjoy this home and the area....for more than 1 day

Room Tip: We stayed in the Rosemary Suite....Beautiful 2nd floor suite with a jacuzzi tub. Wonderfully comfort...

When we made our reservations we were informed that the Guest House was full but that they had an additional house on the other side of their meeting hall just around the corner. We stayed in the Parker House which was very beautifully restored. The rooms were spotless, towels fluffy, amenities available, and the innkeepers very responsive. The fresh fruit available all day was a nice feature. We will definitely stay in this property when we visit Hinton again. We did not use it but there is a grill outdoors as well as seating.

Room Tip: The Sarah guest room has a private bath.

We used the Guest House to host our son's wedding rehearsal dinner and had The Market to cater the affair. Prior to searching for a venue, we asked the couple what their wishes were for the rehearsal dinner. They wanted a romantic and quiet, but elegant setting where the families and friends could relax and spend time together. We searched and recieved bids from up scale restaurants in Beckley and Lewisburg, WV, but couldn't find a venue that covered all of the wishes. While having a pre-wedding meeting at The Market in Hinton, Ginger Snider mentioned their catering capabilities and talked us into conducting a site inspection of the Guest House with Nancy Richmond. After touring the Guest House, we knew we had found our venue! We quickly met with Ginger and she made the menu process very easy. All we had to do is show up! The night of the rehearsal dinner was terrific. The food was delicious, the lighting and tents were romantic, and the setting was relaxed and elegant! Our hostess was Judy Lytle and she made everyone feel at ease. She and Ginger gave extra attention to small details from the food and wine to pineapple and strawberries on the chocolate fountain that was beyond our expectations! The entire wait staff catered to our every wish. We were lucky to find The Guest House in our back yard and it added many wonderful memories of our special occasion! Thank you Guest House and Market, and we commend your staff for making our evening extremely memorable!

My stay at the Guest House Inn was absolutely fantastic. Accommodations were beautiful and comfortable. Nancy goes above and beyond to make sure you are well taken care of. I would not hesitate to stay there again. There is nothing negative I have to say about my stay!

We first stayed at the Guest House last Christmas, then again recently while visiting family in the Hinton area. Our room was comfortable and tastefully decorated. The granite and stainless kitchen is exceptionally well appointed, and we couldn't wait to put it to good use! We happened to meet the very friendly owner who has developed several properties and is making a big personal investment in improving this community. This guesthouse was on par with B&B's we've visited in Provincetown and Napa--an unexpected but delightful find in southern West Virginia.

My mom and I had to make a last minute trip to Hinton. My uncle had past away. We had never been there and this was the only "hotel" in the area. We stayed in the "Kathleen" suite and it was beautiful, comfortable and stunning as is the entire home. Nancy is a gem and was so helpful to us when we checked in. She knew of my uncle and made sure we knew where the service was being held and how to get there and how sorry she was. The whole home is beautiful and having a full gourmet kitchen to use is just amazing! I don't know when but, I will be going back to stay there. Just remember this is a "guesthouse" NOT a Bed and Breakfast. While the room has a coffee maker and all you need, there is no real breakfast. However Nancy does have a fresh bowl of fruit and some muffins in the morning for everyone.
