“wow that girl can cook”
Reviewed December 2, 2008

my wife and I along with our two children were very pleased with our total experience at the Arnott House. We especially liked how it seemed we were in a 200 yr. old house, but it was completely modern. Most all the furniture I saw seemed to be antique,But it sure was comfortable! The beds must have been new. Our room had its own thermostat, which was nice. We stayed two nights and each morning we were greeted with big smiles and " What would you like for breakfast? In every way the good folks at the Arnott House exceeded our expectations. I'm sure they will yours too.

The Arnott House is owned and operated by very nice people. The rooms have comfortable beds, nice tv's, and good heating/cooling. Each morning, breakfast is made from scratch. Excellent atmosphere for business or leisure travel.

This was my first trip to Spencer, West Virginia and a short overnight trip. After a long day it was wonderful to be greated with a warm smile by the hostess and the smell of a freshly baked pineapple upside down cake.

The inn is both beautiful and unpretentious with immaculately clean rooms. Easily accessed at the edge of downtown, it is quiet and comfortable. The beds are heavenly. The hosts have done a great job of maintaining the old time charm with modern conveniences.

If you are looking for comfort and genuine hospitality, this is the place to find it.

This house is large, yet very private and comfortable. The beds are great, with the covers having a vintage appearance. Throughout the house there are fine examples of the original construction. Four of us (Mom, sister Katherine, daughter Jeanette, and myself) stayed one night. My youngest daughter Nancy was getting married Saturday October 4.
All of us slept well, and had a wonderful croissant breakfast Saturday morning.
Even though the house is located in town, the noise level was very low, and did not keep any of us awake.
I hope to go back for a longer stay.

  • Liked — The first floor bedroom has two beds, perfect for Mom.

The Arnott House is comfortable, clean, and the owners are hospitable. When we pulled into the driveway the owner greeted us warmly and assurred that we were satisfied with our room arrangements. Every detail was taken care of. The B&B is a refurbished old house, but all modern items were available. I will stay there again if I am in that area.

  • Liked — Old time feel
  • Disliked — in town, but noise was very minimal. I am a light sleeper and I slept fine.

The best place to stay when you are in the Spencer, WV / Roane County area.

This is a quaint little bed & breakfast that is in the heart of Roane County, WV. The home is a beautiful victorian with many nice appointments, that has been lovingly restored by the inn keepers.

The B&B is conviently located in Spencer with everything you might need within a short walking or driving distance.

The owners of the B&B also own a great coffee shop and cafe that is just a sort walk downtown called The Serenity Cup Cafe.

The cafe offers great pizzas, sandiwichs, soups and some Russian fare as well. Also, the coffees and teas are the best in town. If you go to the cafe you must try the homeade crossiants and scones they are absolutley delicious!
