“A true retreat experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We found The Inn at Mountain Quest to be the comfort of a 5 star resort with genuine hospitality rarely found. The guest can comfortably design their stay with the balance of solitude or spending time with the hosts & staff that caters to their needs.
A breathtaking location, a working farm, walking trails, an extensive library, along with other attractive amenities all at an affordable price.
We can't wait to return!

We have been going to Mountain Quest three or four times a year for several years. We recently had family reunion there. It is always the same, prefect. Of course rural Pocahontas County is a natural gem, and the Inn at Mountain Quest is a gem within a gem. The facility, (especially the rooms, the farm, the food, the people, oh shucks, everything) are so wonderful. When sufficient quest are at the Inn, Chef Andy will fix you a meal of unparalleled excellence. And check out the darkness of the nights, or more accurately the absence of light pollution. The heavens seem to come alive at Mountain Quest. If your taste runs toward hiking plus plant and animal watching, one can roam for hours in complete solitude from other life forms.

Room Tip: Each room is unique, designed around some theme, so ask and pick one to fit your fancy.

We discovered this beautiful, welcoming place by accident, while searching for ski accomodations. It is about 20 minutes from Snowshoe, WV. The Bennetts have created a library, conference/retreat center, functioning farm , and hiking trials on about 20 acres. Our children love this place. Greenbrier and the radio astronomy center at Green Bank are also close. Breakfast was good, but dinner is not served every night, which is the only thing keeping this from 5 stars.

If you just want to relax and unwind and do without cellphones here's a place for you. The innkeepers were very friendly. The farm tour was my favorite thing to do. I learned some new things about horses and llamas. Atmosphere is laid back and peaceful. We stayed in the Old World Room for two nights through a Groupon deal. The public computers would not work for some reason though.

Room Tip: All rooms are decorated with a different theme. You choose.

My wonderful fiancee bought a groupon for a two night stay at the Inn at Mountain Quest. At first, I wasn't sure what to expect, but as soon as we stepped into the Inn we were greeted with a smile. I cannot express how welcoming the owners and their family made us feel, they completely went out of our way to give us advice about restaurants in the area, and hikes around the Inn. We started off our stay with Alex giving us a tour of the library, game room, sauna and gym.

Farm: The best part of the whole experience was probably getting to know the horses and llamas. You can really tell that the owners truly love and care for the animals. I personally loved to see how each horse had such unique personalities.

Our room: We stayed in the Astronomy room, which had great views of the property, however, the decor wasn't as exciting as other rooms like the African Safari. The bathroom was spacious as was the room. Overall the room was great. Definitely would fit 4 people comfortably.

Food: The options around the Inn for food are limited, however, the Inn itself provides great buffet options. The breakfast consisted of sausage, bacon, eggs, pastries, cereal (cold and hot), toast, some sort of fruit option (we had grapes and strawberries), and pancake or waffles. In terms of the dinner buffet which was not included is only $22 per person. You really can't beat the price if you think about it. The options we had for the buffet was pork roast (which was my favorite), vegetarian stir fry, brown rice, steamed broccoli, steamed baby carrots, macaroni and cheese, sweet potato, chicken alfredo, pizza, garden salad. For dessert we had the option of flan and brownies. Outside of the buffets, the Inn has several of snack options available that a relatively good price, while tea and coffee are complimentary.

Amenities: I cannot express this enough when I say that you will really be unplugged from the world. There is absolutely no cell signal (which I loved), however, there is complimentary wifi for guests in the library. The library is simply amazing. You can literally find any book on any topic you would like. I love maps and found plenty of map books to look through while I was at the Inn. If reading isn't your thing, there is a large game room that includes a bar. There is a wall filled with DVDs which you can either take to your room or enjoy in the game room's 3D TV. Although we did not use the sauna or hot tub, the options are there, so if that interests you, definitely remember to bring along swimsuits. In terms of hikes, there are a several hiking routes in the property, however, keep in mind that finding some of the trails can be a little difficult.

Overall the experience at the Inn was amazing. My fiancee made a pack that in like 10 years we'd be back once we have kids (if we don't return before then). From a city gal, I think having the experience of unplugging from the world and simply enjoying nature is a necessity from time to time, especially for children.

My husband and I found this place using Groupon and we were extremely pleased. It is in a beautiful location in the WVA mountains. The drive in from the Baltimore area is a bit stressful (mountain passes with switchbacks and no cell service), but we made it in and out with no issues. The place is in a remote area, so come prepared. Bring snacks and get gas before the mountains (it is more expensive in the region around the B&B). The B&B is run by a family who believe in providing wonderful hospitality, clean rooms, and a comfortable atmosphere for all that stay there. They use the honor system for the bar and snack area, which is refreshing (bring cash). They truly open their home to you, encouraging you to make yourself at home. All of the amenities are available to use at any time, including the library, game room, bar, sauna, gym, snack area, and the grounds. The only place really off limits was their residence and the farm area, which is understandable and expected. The food was great - breakfast was made to order. We ate in the dining room with other guests and really enjoyed it! We took a guided tour of the farm which was really nice. They have amazing animals and you can tell they truly care about them. We are already planning our next trip back!

Room Tip: The Fantasy Room had a king bed and a sitting area. It was close enough to the conference center tha...

My fiancee and I stayed here for a weekend getaway. I wound up finding it on groupon and thought we would give it a shot. Lets just say we can't wait to go back! This is the BEST find ever! If you are looking for a quite place to escape reality this is it. The scenery is absolutely beautiful and yes, you are in the middle of nowhere. We came all the way from Philadelphia and it was worth the trip. The owners were so welcoming and really made us feel like this was our home. They made it very clear from the second we got there that the whole place was open to us, they even let use the kitchen! The food is to die for! I can't say enough great things about David Alex and Andy. The farm is beautiful and the animals are very well cared for and loved. Take the farm tour they offer, it's very cool! This was a trip to remember and we can't wait to come back!

Room Tip: All the rooms have a different theme, when booking make sure to say what you are looking for. We st...
