“Accidental visit to wonderful B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

We were on a group hike in the Hidden Valley area near Warm Springs, VA and happened on this B&B on a 70-acre farm. The inn was basically closed but the gracious hosts, Ron and Pam, took us on a tour of the property including the barn, goat pin, natural spring house and historic inn itself. They served us goats milk hot chocolate, homemade goat cheese and crackers and almond cookies. The kids got to pet the sheep and goats were in heaven exploring the farm. We are definitely going back for stay during their season which is April to the end of October. Numerous great things to do in the area including hiking, hunting, trout fishing, etc. The house has been stunningly restored with ante-bellum furniture and could not be more charming. Definitely worth a visit.

Pam and Ron and their wonderful Inn gave us the refreshing time we needed. The setting, food, and beautiful mountains with excursions though the Jackson River watershed to Lake Moomaw were just the medicine we needed.

Rebecca and I wanted a couple days or serenity in the Virginia highlands and chose historic Bath county, much of which is George Washington National Forest, for an August 2012 visit.

We had four or five B&Bs to choose from, but decided on Hidden Valley B&B because of it's being on 70 acres tucked into the GWNF with the availability of numerous hiking/walking trails minutes on foot from the Inn. An added attraction was the Jackson River just five hundred or so feet away!

The house, circa 1848 and a wonderful example of Greek Revival which was popular at that time in the antebellum South, has been painstakingly and lovingly restored by the proprietors, Ron and Pam Stidham who acquired it in 1990 and have been there ever since. We spent quite a while talking with them both over the weekend and found them very genial and knowledgeable about the history of the house and the area.

The two full breakfasts that Pam prepared for us were outstanding. Our culinary interests and palates haven't been pampered like that in a LONG WHILE.

We had a lovely dinner in Warm Springs at the Water Wheel restaurant, and the second night picked up some take out and relaxed with the meal on the back porch of the Inn that is buffeted by a lovely flower garden and vista of the fields and mountain behind them. Lots of hummingbirds buzzing about as well which Rebecca adores!

Unlike some B&Bs, our mattress was extremely comfortable and the boxsprings quiet. The bathrooms have plenty of water pressure and abundant hot water. The rooms and hallways of the home are appointed with lovely period antiques that give the house a feel and appearance much akin to what it would have looked like in the Old South.

One of the most pleasant two-night sojourns we have ever undertaken, and we plan to go back and stay with them again. I believe they close in mid-November for the winter.

Historic b&b. Correctly restored and furnished, comfortable and squeaky clean, spacious and nicely landscaped grounds. A couple of minutes walk to Jackson River trails and trout fishing, along with the Hidden Valley wildlife viewing trail. Secluded and nestled in the George Washington National Forest, but close to the Jefferson Pools, the oldest developed hot springs in the US. and frequented by Thomas Jefferson, other springs near by. Hummingbirds galore during the day and whip-poor-wills at dusk.

Went for an overnight romantic weekend. The Inn grounds were beautiful, the inn itself was gorgeous and the owners were sweet and friendly. Hard to think of a more relaxing getaway. Wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back.And a great breakfast too!

Pam and Ron Stidham continue to provide a unique experience at their B&B in Hidden Valley, Warm Springs, Virginia. They have now added a family setting in the summer kitchen from the Sommersby movie set. I enjoy their style of hospitality as you are always more family than guest. Every touch of home is provided in this exquisite setting among the mountains of western Virginia. As a trout fisherman I am in heaven here with the Jackson River at your doorstep. The breakfasts are sumptuous and always different and served in the elegant Victorian dining room. This is a great experience and a chance to relax in an historic setting with the feel of a farm.

Room Tip: You will love the summer kitchen, even in winter. Very romantic.

I never do the online review thing as time does not allow but Hidden Valley is such a gem that folks need to understand how truly unique and inspirational the experience is. You can take the traditional B&B route and be pampered by the innkeepers in the circa- 1840's mansion, complete with fantabulous breakfast. I had no idea how much better scrambled eggs tasted when the eggs were literally plucked from the farm that sits on premises.

Or, if you are an outdoor nut like me, the summer kitchen can be your own slice of paradise. Two big fireplaces, a stocked kitchen, total privacy and accommodations for my canine pals is special enough. But to be able to open up your door and literally take 5 steps to hit the trails is phenomenal. Mountain bike, hike, fish, explore, ramble, backpack....and then return to the summer kitchen and chillax. I love parking my car upon arrival and knowing I can ditch the keys for the next few days as I am sitting in the middle of the backcountry with all of the luxuries of the front country. Wireless internet is there if you absolutely must re-tether, as is satellite TV...my last trip there I actually set up a virtual office and was more productive than I've been in years without the typical distractions of day to day life. Trails are suitable for my 78 year young mom and my 8 year old niece...great variety for everyone. My dog usually sleep for 2 or 3 days solid after we return from a Hidden Valley adventure....as do I!

I hesitate to share this fabulous hideaway with too many folks, but it is truly one of a kind. Enjoy!
