Country River Inn
Ranked #1 of 4 Fayetteville B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

A perfect place to stay, immaculately clean, & spacious rooms with small fridge, microwave & rain shower head. Rick, the owner is very friendly, helpful, attentive & cooks a great hot breakfast! Not too frilly, not too shabby, just right! I wouldn't stay any where else!

Stayed here as we passed through the state returning from the coast. Thought staying on an old school would be unusual, which we love. This is a 1980s type elementary school. Not impressed. First, couldn't find the place! The owner had said that GPS had trouble locating it but the fact that they only have a sign visible going in one direction on the road made it worse. There is a small sign on the end of the building unrelated to the inn which was additionally confusing. Car in parking lot with flat tire, also big old (ugly) mobil home parked up by the door. We were the only guests so I assume those belonged to the owners. Room was ok. Nice shower. Good bed. Breakfast was not great. Frozen type hash brown patty, brown and serve sausage, canned biscuits with scrambled egg. There is a pool (closed while we were there-early in the season) and a hot tub which was open (didn't use) Watch the step down onto the deck. Not well marked and I fell coming out of the building into the sunlight. Owner said most customers are about our age (65-70). Inn not great-not terrible. Good pizza place in town.

We looked through reviews of various facilities before deciding to stay here. The family that runs the inn are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are amazingly clean, spacious, and comfortable. We both slept like logs (partly due to our hectic schedule but also because of the comfort of the beds and lack of noise from other guests). We were intrigued by the idea of a converted school house and couldn't even tell that it had been a school house at one time. They did a great job with renovations. There is a cafe/dining room on the main floor where breakfast is served: delicious eggs, hash browns, biscuits, and juice (and sausages if you're not vegetarian like myself). The breakfast is served hot (you just let them know the day before when you would like to eat). Although there is no wifi in the rooms, wifi works well in the cafe, and no problem with being in the cafe during off hours (I'm a morning person and wanted to get some work done before we set off for our latest adventure). I would highly recommend staying here and would definitely come back. The location is very convenient to Adventures on the Gorge and other activities, as well as downtown dining options, etc. They even provide a list of suggested trails and restaurants. Great people, service, and accommodations!

This is a nice place to get away from the hubbub of daily life. It is in a serene and natural setting where one can appreciate the pleasure of simplicity. The inn is clean and uncluttered and the innkeeper was kind and helpful. We went to this area for rafting, and this inn is very close to a base camp. There are several nice restaurants nearby, and also a mini fridge and microwave in the room for the nights that we just wanted to have sandwiches and chips and watch movies (translation: Mom was too tired to go out after a day on the river). The jetted hot tub at the inn was a nice relief for sore muscles. Overall, we had a great end-of-summer getaway here. The breakfasts were hearty and delicious, and we all especially enjoyed the company of little Polly. We would definitely come back here again to enjoy beautiful West Virginia!

OK, I get that the building doesn't look like a typical B&B. It's an old school building that has been converted into a B&B. Where it gets good is the inside of the building....it is VERY clean. I looked for dust in our room and couldn't find any. The rooms (and beds) were very comfortable as well. Now to cover what typically bothers us most about the places we stay. Not enough outlets...not here. We could both use our laptops and charge our phones without having to unplug anything. Exhaust fan that does nothing....ours worked exceptionally well. Noise from the hallway/ other rooms...not a peep. The area is quiet to begin with, add the cinder block walls that have been covered with drywall and you have extreme quiet. Tiny bathroom...the shower was big. I need to also cover that there was a small refrigerator and microwave in the room. We didn't take advantage of them, but there is a nice pool and hot tub if you are looking for that. The owner, Rick was a wonderful host. He greeted us the minute we got there, showed us to our room and was available when we needed him. He also made us a very filling breakfast in the morning at the time we had requested. If you are rafting with Cantrell, the Country River Inn is very convenient as it is right down the road. GPS is currently not reliable to find the address to the Inn. It stopped us down the road at Cantrell, but we quickly figured out that it was just a minute down the road on the left. We have put this location on our list for all future road trips through the area. Thanks again to Rick for his hospitality!

We stayed at the Country River Inn last summer for a night while passing though the area. We were very pleased with the accommodations and the friendly staff. I was impressed at how clean it was. We will probably return to the area this summer and stay for a few more days.
