Reviewed November 28, 2011

On Sunday, October 30, 2011, my wife and lodged at the Café Cimino Country Inn. We were returning home from the Washington, D.C., area and diverted there because we were intrigued by the uniqueness of this establishment. In addition to being a bed & breakfast, this facility includes a professional restaurant that is open to the public as well as its guests and features Italian cuisine. The restaurant is closed on Sundays, but the host and head chef Tim prepares dinners on that day exclusively for his lodgers. We had a very good dinner served by our hostess Melody, who is Tim’s wife, which started with large antipasti that included a caprese salad, a variety cheeses, Italian ham, peppers, and olives. For our entrées my wife had the stuffed chicken breast and I had the trout. Our meal was accompanied by an excellent Chardonnay. The house is old but well restored, charming, and beautifully decorated. Our room was very clean and comfortable. For breakfast we were each served fresh fruits, a quiche, a fried polenta triangle, and scones. All of it was very delicious, and we are still talking about the scones! Tim and Melody were very friendly, gracious and accommodating. They were great hosts who have very interesting backgrounds that they shared with us. We had a wonderful time, so check it out even if you have to drive out of your way to get there.

Hello travelers and thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review! We appreciate that you are helping other travelers choose us as a nice place to stay over and have a great meal! Your description made me hungry just reading it...think I'll go have Chef Tim whip something up for me! We love our Sunday and Monday guests because it gives us time to connect with them in a very laid back and personal way. It's as if you come to "visit" us on Sundays and Mondays. But please come any day of the week! Tuesdays through Saturdays we have all of our staff on board and they are wonderful and engaging as well:) Happy travels and please stop by again the next time we are "on your way"...or maybe one day we can be your "destination"! thanks again! Melody

My husband and I have stopped at Cafe Cimino Country Inn many times for dinner, but decided to stop for the night on our travels north. We stayed in the Benjamin Room in the Carriage House. The room is nicely decorated and very comfortable. I loved the rich plum colored walls and thick bedding. Our room overlooked the Inn's yard and was very private.
The owners, Tim and Melody Urbanic, welcomed every visitor to Cafe Cimino as did the warm fire in the historic main house's fireplace. Our waitress, Melissa, was very attentive and helpful in making our dinner selections.
We enjoyed our dinner as usual. We had a Caprese Salad and Caesar Salad and shared a creamy ham and bean soup. I had Chicken San Marzano, chicken breast stuffed with Fontina cheese and Prosciutto ham with a creamy white mushroom sauce. My husband loved his lasagna, one of the specials that evening. We also shared a rich chocolate torte for dessert.
A fresh cooked breakfast of quiche, bacon, scones, muffins and fruit was included with the room. Make sure you don't miss it!
We will be back soon Tim and Melody.

We wanted a weekend away and I booked us a night at the b&b as well as an hour with the Chef Tim Urbanic as he discussed the efforts he has made to serve quality foods with local origins as much as possible. On the forefront of this local foods trend, he prepares dishes that are superbly presented and deliciously prepared. We enjoyed a 5 course dinner complimented with West Virginia wines. Service was friendly and attentive, Both Tim and Melody checked on us often. The restaurant was active and a local guitarist played softly. The room was large and beautifully furnished. The bed was one of the most comfortable away from my own. We will be back!

Sutton, WV may be in the middle of nowhere, this the Cafe Cimino is a diamond in the rough! A wonderfully restored century-old farmhouse and outbuildings, it is prefect for a B&B. Hosts Meoldy and Jim (and their golden retriever Maggie-May) are charming! We stayed in the Annabella room, which had its own balcony overlooking the Elk river - very relaxing. After an 8-hour drive from South Carolina (on our way home to Ontario), th chance to relax there with a bottle of excellent wine was most welcome. The little pub by the river was very enjoyable, but the best part must have been the exquisite dinner. An overflowing antipasto platter, which was amazing, was followed by even more amazing pasta with smoked salmon, home-made gnocchi, fetucinni, and wonderful tmoto sauce - there was nothing left on our plates! The breakfast was also very good with frittata, polenta, and unique pepered and smoked bacon - all fro miether their own gargen or local farms. A wonderful getaway. Too bad WVU lost to LSU that night...

We enjoyed a lovely afternoon on a canoe fishing on the Elk river (canoewv.com) with a gourmet picnic packed by the folks at Cafe Cimino. We stayed in the Logan room which has a fabulous clawfoot tub (bubble bath & robe provided)! The food (we had both dinner & breakfast the following morning) was a delicious experience!! It was a chilly evening & after dinner we enjoyed sometime by a roaring fire that was going outside on the property. The innkeepers were absolutely delightful & their attention to detail made this a truly wonderful & memorable time! A must see WV treasure!!

We were so delighted to find this place! We stayed in the Maggie May room and spent the evening on the little balcony overlooking the river. The breakfasts and dinners were fabulous and since no one else was there, it was all for us!

Hello there! I have been wanting to say "Thank You!" for your review of your stay with us here at the Inn. It is so important to us that people like you take the time to share us with the Trip Advisor World! And for that we thank you...just a note; we have made a neat improvement to your room, the Maggie May. It is now covered with a neat, bright, white roof so that you even sit out on the porch in the rain! We always hope that the weather is sunny and beautiful when our guests come, but should it be inclement, your Maggie May room now has a covered roof! We hope to see you whenever you can make it to see us again...thanks! Melody, your innkeeper and hostess

From first contact to the hug goodby, this weekend experience was awesome! Melody and Tim and the staff are very gracious, thoughtful, and accomodating hosts, The food is "melt in your mouth" delicious--and not just one meal--but EVERY meal! The Maggie Mae room was very comfortable with an absolutely gorgeous view from the balcony of the grounds and the Elk River. If you want a quiet time away from the hustle and bustle, this is the perfect place to experience the serenity and beauty of West Virginia. It showcases some of the beautiful artwork of West Virginians in every room. Do yourselves a favor and make reservations NOW!

Hello there friends from Poca! Thank you for your wonderful review of your stay with us last summer! You are so sweet; glad you enjoyed your time with us, the food and the accommodations, 'cause we sure enjoyed serving you. I also wanted to tell you of a really neat improvement we have made to the Maggie May; it now have a roof over your patio deck, so you can actually sit out on your porch even in the rain! We have been wanting to do that for a while and it's worked out really well on these sleepy, rainy days. Our guests can still hang out and enjoy the view and the river, even if it's raining! So, coem back when you can and check it out. But mostly wanted to thank you for appreciating what we do and for sharing us with the world by posting your review! Melody, your innkeeper and hostess
