My wife and I decided to go up to bike the Greenbriar River trail and golf at the Raven golf course...both were outstanding and well worth the drive from North Carolina. I researched places to stay and decided on ERI. Snowshoe was closed and frankly we were happy it was.
We arrived late at the Inn and found a note directing us to our room. The room had to have been cleaned by someone who knew what they were doing...it was meticulous. The mattress on the bed...not the kind you find in even higher priced hotels. It was better.
After we took our luggage in, we decided to sit on the back porch and relax with a glass of wine. What a delight that was. Quiet, secluded and surrounded by the West Virginia woods.
We found the Greenbriar Trail to be as expected....wonderful. After a full day of biking, we spent a beautiful late afternoon on the back porch again.
In the morning, you are treated to a great breakfast...nothing exotic...just a perfect meal to start the day.
Golfing at the Raven Golf course was another unexpected delight. I have been an avid golfer for 30 years and found this course to be one of the most enjoyable I have ever played. And the scenery was world class.
There is a lack of night life, but that is not what we went to Slatyfork for...we were both too tired to go out and found that the ERI back porch was much better than some bar.
We did not have an opportunity to enjoy their restaurant (it was not open when we were there) but we will on our return trip...which will be soon.
