“A wonderful place and wonderful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2014

We just got back from spending 5 nights at the James Wylie House. Monica, the owner could not have been more gracious. Breakfast was a gourmet experience every morning. Pop's (her dad) was a joy to talk to. What a wonderful experience. 1 minute down the road from the Greenbriar and a close walk to restaurants in town. Do yourself a favor and stay here when visiting the area.

The perfect balance of rustic charm, cleanliness, value, good food and hospitality...loved curling up in a chair on the front porch with a book. Convenient to shops and The Greenbriar...easy on/off I-64. Great stopping point to east shore beaches.

Stayed at this B&B with my mother, sister, and niece. Great for a girls vacation! The log cabin was great. Hosts were friendly and helpful with local attractions. Breakfast was fantastic. Definitely skip the garish and expensive Greenbriar - Stay at the James Wylie House.

This was our 1st experience with a B&B. While the home is very old, the facility is well maintained and very comfortable. We were greeted with a handshake and a smile. Breakfast was fantastic - egg casserole, baked grits, peach cobbler, fresh fruit! The host couldn't have been more accomodating. They provided recommendations for area restaruants in Lewisburg that were very good. And the fellowship with fellow B&B guests was very nice. :)

Cozy and rustic.

We wanted to experience the atmosphere of an old cabin and this is exactly that. We stayed for three days in their cabin and the minute we stepped in we felt like going back in time. Well, of course with all conveniences of modern living. Downstairs has sofa, fireplace, TV, kitchen corner with fridge and dining table, but it still feels like being there 100’s years back. It is the log walls, decoration and small pieces of furniture, which gives the cottage overall traditional feeling. Upstairs is bedroom with queen bed and single bed. See pictures. Crooked, sloped floor is a reminder that you are in a cabin built 1794.

We did not hear dog’s barking as someone said and cabin is actually very quiet even when sitting outside since it sits behind the main house, further from the main town street. We had to use AC (upstairs only), but opening on the 2nd floor lets cool air to come down too. It was as quiet as they come for window unit and sufficient enough for 90F heat wave we had encountered for few days.

Other reviews correctly praise homemade served breakfast and pleasant company of Monica and her father. Her blueberry pancakes were amazing. This was really a treat and unique to any place we visited before (350 cities 53 countries). We did not see the inside of the house and other bedrooms. But as you can see there is a good reason why this place so far does not have any rating below 4 stars. Free wireless internet does not reach inside of the cabin well, but it has sufficient strength already when sitting just outside on the rocking chairs. For the best reception go to the main porch of the house with tables chairs and swinging bench. Since this property is in the town, there are some places you can eat as Monica (the owner) will advise you and there is always the opulent Greenbrier (1mile) if you are willing to splurge. This B&B is located conveniently close to many attractions as pointed out by other reviewers. Greenbrier (don’t miss the Bunker Tour), caves, river trail, town of Lewisburg and more.

In conclusion, privacy and ambiance of a rustic cabin, exceptional breakfast and friendliness of the owner made this a perfect 3 day stay.

This is a wonderfully kept and managed bed & breakfast in a lovely section of West Virginia. Three of us spent two nights and found the visit a totally positive experience. Monica, the proprietor, has extensive knowledge of the region, its restaurants and attractions. The breakfasts were expansive and beautifully prepared and presented.

The James Wylie house is a treat.

We stayed in front room on second floor and thoroughly enjoyed innkeeper Monica and her dad Carl. The front porch, bedrooms and common areas are quite charming and reflected the historic landmark character of this home. We stayed 3 days and each breakfast was better than the next. There was plenty to eat and everything was delicious. Monica and Carl were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed a wonderful time and felt most welcome.

Room Tip: Each of the 3 rooms I looked at was great. We liked the second floor front bedrooms which had air c...
