The secluded location is fantastic and the property is clean and well run. Our room (one of the least expensive) was more than adequate with a great view (though there are no bad views here). We had dinner at the inn, which provided a vegetarian option. The meal was good, though perhaps not the gourmet quality suggested in some of the promotional material.
While the owners have clearly made great efforts to provide homey touches, the profusion of mountain- themed tchotchkes was a bit overwhelming.
We took the hike to the top of the Mountain, which was certainly good exercise and rewarded us with a spectacular view.
Had we consulted Trip Advisor (or decision was at the last minute) we might have been prepared for the fact that the Inn is much more of a Bed and Breakfast than an Inn or a Hotel. One trades a certain amount of privacy (you could hear conversations in the adjoining rooms and downstairs, interaction with the other guests and manager is part of the experience).
The manager, Allie, seemed to do just abut everything from handling reservations and guest's requests to cooking and serving the meals, to acting as concierge around the clock.
She was very pleasant without being overly friendly or intrusive.
We were glad to have discovered the Inn, though our preference would be for something more private. However for those who like the uniqueness and camaraderie of the B&B experience combined with the renowned beauty of the West Virginia hills , the North Fork Mountain Inn is hard to beat.

This is a lovely, isolated (at least through the eyes of a city couple) property. Perched high on a mountainside, but 1200 vertical feet and two of trail miles below the TOP of the ridge (you get to climb to the top if you have time to spare -- we did, and it was worth it), there are spectacular views from the porch or hot tub. The rooms are large and well-outfitted; I'm far from a toiletry snob but what was left for us was really nice. Beds, chairs, etc -- great. The common areas are pleasant, with many books and magazines available. A very dark sky meant lots of stars. Don't plan on hopping into town for meals; plan on having all your meals at the Inn if you are staying on the mountain. A refrigerator is available as is as i recall a microwave (check with the innkeepers).

The proprietor was extremely friendly as were the other guests. The rooms were decorated nicely and were clean beyond belief. There were hiking paths laid out behind the Inn going as far as two miles in a beautiful wooded areas!

Room Tip: We booked one of the less expensive rooms and was pleased. All rooms looked out over the mountain tops!

We chose this location as a stop on our trip back for our 25th anniversary vacation and didn't know what to expect. After letting our GPS lead us astray (follow the written directions) we were pleased with what we found. Ed and Carol made us feel right at home. We watched the hummingbirds chase each other around the feeders from the front porch chairs with the beautiful view of the mountains in the background. Both of our breakfasts were outstanding. If I had it to plan over, I would have scheduled our arrival and activities to allow us to be there for the dinners. We did get a picnic lunch to take with us to the Via Ferrata which was delicious. Warning: it is hard to pass the cookie jar by the front door without taking another cookie every time you go out.

Room Tip: The pictures of the rooms on the website give you an accurate feel of the various rooms.

My boyfriend and I booked a room here last weekend for a romantic getaway. First off, it's nothing if not romantic. The inn is set atop a mountain overlooking beautiful, rolling hills. Where the inn is located is fairly remote (about 7 miles off the main road), so it was nice and quiet.

When we arrived, we were shown to our room, the Seneca Rock Room. It was all we has been hoping for. The bed was very comfy, with nice fluffy pillows. The bathroom was nice and clean, with complimentary eco-friendly lotion, shampoo, and conditioner that smelled amazing. There was even a make-up cloth I could use so I didn't have to dirty up one of their nice ones! Our room contained a jacuzzi, which we were able to enjoy with a nice bottle of champagne. I'd also like to add that we shared one of our walls with another room and never heard a sound.

There are two women (besides the owners) who work there and they are extremely helpful and friendly. One was kind enough to give us directions to a local swimming hole on the river and we drove out and basked in the sun, swimming in the water all day long with another couple from the inn. Ed and Carol were around just enough. They give the guests their space, but are also available for directions or just friendly talk if you want. Also, Ed's cooking is out of this world.

We came back a lb. or two heavier, but we definitely didn't have any regrets! We hope to be back soon. :)
