After getting a referral from Thyme Bistro, located in Weston, WV, for the Forks Restaurant & Inn, we cancelled our previous hotel arrangements and jumped at the opportunity to stay in this mountainside lodge. The restaurant was fantastic! Beautiful views, outstanding food, impeccable service and although we only had entrees along with wine, my love stated the prime rib was... More

Folks, really...if you are traveling within a couple hours of here...this is a MUST dinner! Tonight, the soup - a chicken chowder - delicious! The pasta special was truly scrumptious. My wife had the seafood cake, a generous portion of crab, tuna, etc., WOW! Tomorrow, the summer menu starts ... (They shared the menu) The pork chop!? We'll be back.... More

This place is better known as a restaurant (very very good, and I've reviewed it separately) but also has six rooms above the restaurant. Basic rooms, nothing fancy, but the view from the balcony is fantastic - a beautiful valley spreading out to distant mountains. The room had everything I needed, including microwave and refrigerator and good free wifi. The... More

Taking a long weekend in West Virginia, the Forks Inn appealed to us because it combined both comfortable lodging and a well-reviewed restaurant. Having stayed there, I share some of the sentiments of the other reviewers, both pro and con: very comfortable bed, great view from the deck, mini fridge and microwave in the room...but Route 33 is noisy, the...

I stumbled across this place while looking for a short getaway, and am glad I did! The entire process, from reservations to checkout, was a breeze. Our room (#3) was roomy, nicely decorated, comfortable, and very clean! The view from the balcony was amazing -- yeah, there's traffic noise, but I didn't find it to be a nuisance. I'd definitely...

Visited the restaurant. Greeted well, led to an outside table as requested. Polite waitress explained the specials of the day etc. All this part of the restaurant functioned very well. However, the food we chose, had a lot to be desired. Must say, the salads were rather good and the dressings paired well. But the most expensive dish on the... More

We were 2 couples taking 2 of the 6 rooms at the Inn for 2 nights. The rooms were clean and decently appointed. The best part was the view of the mountains from the balcony . The worst part was road noise from the highway, which runs a little way down below the inn's hillside location. They did not have... More

I had the pleasure of staying her on a roadtrip for work. The rooms were clean and well kept. I also ate at the restaurant, which was delicious. I've seen some reviews calling it pricey, and I disagree. I think the prices are fair especially since many ingredients are locally sourced. Also, they carry primarily all local brews on tap,...

We stayed at The Forks Inn for the Polar Express train ride this year. We reserved 2 rooms and stayed with my parents and our two young boys. We had the best time! The hotel is really several small buildings along a ridge that overlooks a beautiful view. The restaurant was a wonderful, warm, very well run place with truly... More

GPS won't get you here, so listen well to the innkeeper or stop and ask for directions. When we finally found it, I was a little worried because there wasn't a front desk or lobby, but then I remembered the instructions, found the keys and headed inside.
