If you're looking for a secluded picturesque mountain getaway that doesn't require you to kill your meal or sacrifice comfort; this is it!
Ed and Carol have made an oasis for burnt-out Washington DC workers in the rugged mountains of West Virginia. We couldn't have asked for a better way to ring in the new year than with mountain views, a six-course wine-dinner pairing, champagne, and conversations around a crackling fireplace. We stayed in the Eagle's Nest; a second floor room with vaulted ceilings, an 8-point buck above the mantle, and a private balcony facing the mountains. Although remote, the inn is relatively close (30-45minutes) to many regional parks and attractions (e.g., Seneca Rocks/Caverns, Smoke Hole Caverns, Snow Shoe, etc.).
Part of me wants to keep this place a secret to avoid hoards of high-strung DC folk from descending upon the inn; however, I couldn't forgive my selfishness if I didn't give Ed and Carol their due. Thank you guys for the great start to 2012!
