We loved our "Fantasy" room - very spacious and beautifully decorated with lovely murals on the walls and ceiling. MQI does not serve breakfast or do anything other than check you in, but they do give you a daily breakfast voucher to Dean's Den which is 1/4 mile down the road. Andy the owner can make you just about any kind of breakfast you want: eggs, pancakes, breakfast sandwiches. He was not only kind and generous, he had good knowledge about what to do in the area. He'll be happy to help guide you! Andy was the best part of our stay - great guy! Regarding the "no technology zone" in the area (we had our phones off mostly) MQI has Ethernet cables to hook up to laptops, so you can access the internet that way. They also have an extensive DVD collection so you can watch movies at least. Enjoy being "unplugged" while you're here - but if that freaks you out, this may not be the best place to stay.

Room Tip: Marlinton is not close by so you're in a very rural area. Please realize that your accessibility...

We stubbled upon this amazing hidden gem when looking for a place to stay to ride bikes on the Greenbrier River Trail. We were instantly greeted and fed the miniature horses carrots and heard some history about the inn and the owners. The views of the farm and the land when we pulled up were absolutely beautiful! We stayed in the aviation room and it was wonderful, each room is unique with a different theme and is decorated with items the owner has collected over the years. There was no wi-fi which we loved, we enjoyed the animals and walking around the well kept property. The library was incredible featuring thousands of books from the owners private collection! We loved it here and plan to come back this fall. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay and unwind! Side note: Dean's Den just 1/2 mile down the road has amazing breakfast!

I really wanted to love this place. I did. But please ignore the reviews that say WiFi exists at this place. It doesn’t. And they request you turn your phone completely off. I guess some people think that’s relaxing, but my anxiety was through the roof knowing that our families could not contact us easily if something happened. The only reason I chose to stay here was for the library. Well, it was closed due to COVID. Which, okay, I get it. But it was a huge waste of time to stay somewhere an hour from civilization with no cable, no WiFi, no phone service and nothing to see.

The Inn at Mountain Quest has unique room themes, and my kid fell in love with the Safari room after viewing pictures. We reserved this particular room for 2 nights over 3 weeks prior to our stay. However, upon arrival we were notified that we were moved to a different room because someone requested our room and they were staying longer. We were also told that “most people don’t mind when we move them.” For $333 for 2 nights I expected the room I had reserved. My credit card had already been charged for the full amount 5 days prior to arrival. I requested a refund, which they did, but that doesn’t change the fact that this was a huge inconvenience. I drove over 4 hours up that morning and was not planning to drive back home that night. I lost phone service almost 2 hours away from the B&B, so I couldn’t even research another place to stay. Needless to say it was a miserable drive home.

We based part of our reason for booking at MQI on the basis of the description of breakfast. Their answer to avoiding contact during the pandemic is to offload breakfast to Dean's Den, a convenience store / counter style restaurant a half mile away. Dean's opened at 9am, which means breakfast is served AT BEST by 930. COVID-19 restrictions limit occupancy to 3. If the inn is full, you might be waiting. Why does one go to Pocahontas County? For the outdoors! This breakfast "solution " would have put us on our way late morning. Not acceptable in July. There were no muffin or pastry options. When I brought my concerns to the staff I was told "well. It's a complementary breakfast, we don't add it to the bill." You're advertising yourself as a bed and BREAKFAST. Fail. Narrative on the ownership is that they are organizational and management professionals. Sorry, this was a poor, poor show of management...or total lack thereof. PS -The decor is really weird and dated.

Upon arriving my friends and I were absolutely shocked as to how hospitable, clean, and generous the staff and facility was. Pictures do not do this place in justice at all. They also make you feel right at home despite being hours or even states away. Wether you’re going up to Ski at Snowshoe or you need a quiet get a way to rethink and restructure Mountain Quest Inn is the place to go and stay!

This is not your everyday inn or bed and breakfast. The facility is very homey and the innkeepers make you feel at ease. The owners Alex and David Bennet are involved and will make sure your needs are met. They have a very wide selection of books in the library.. tallying over 40,000! Also a huge selection of DVDS, board games, an arcade game, a pool table, small gym, and an indoor hot tub. The facility is intricately crafted and beautiful from top to bottom. This is an experience you don't want to miss out on!

This place is amazing! The staff are so friendly and accommodating. Enjoyed feeding the horses with Jason and listening to music played by Gwin. The rooms are unique and tastefully decorated and we couldn't get our grandson out of the game room. If you are looking for a quiet getaway where you can choose a book to read from the massive library or walk around the farm to meet the animals, I highly recommend this place. We will definitely return the next time we are in the area.

I stayed one night at The Inn at Mountain Quest with friends and family who booked the stay. The property is absolutely beautiful; rooms are clean and the community spaces, especially the library, are beautiful. Be mindful though that this inn is not good if you need to conduct business of any kind or get online for work/school/personal. Their website advertises a business center with high speed internet. I'm not sure where the business center is, but the property is also very large, however, they do not keep the wifi on. Wifi is only available from 8 am- 9 am during breakfast, and from 8:30 pm to 9:30 pm. They ask all guests to keep your phones on airplane mode as there are people staying at the inn and also workers on the property that have electromagnetic sensitivities. This information would have been nice to know ahead of time as I have a business to take care of as well as schoolwork and would have stayed elsewhere if this was known. If you ask the staff to turn on the wifi or leave it on for a few minutes longer to finish up work, they remind you of how there are people with sensitivities that need to come into the community spaces. This was very inconvenient albeit frustrating and not communicated on their website. If you are truly looking to disconnect, this Inn would be perfect and I do recommend it because of the hospitality, cleanliness, furnishings, etc. I only want to provide a head's up to others if you do need access to the internet for work, school, etc.
