After a day on the road crossing WV mountains on scenic highways, we were ready for a rest. Called the b&b for a room, and there was one left- perfect for us/perfect price. Asked about dinner, and while always crowded, there was one table left. I asked them to save it for us.
Totally customer oriented, we were greeted upon arrival, taken to our table. The owner, Melody, came over to our table to chat with us. Our room key was brought to us and we were told that when we were ready, we would be escorted to our room, and our luggage would be cared for.
Dinner was SUPERB. We began with an aperitif, then appetizer, pallet cleaner of cucumber/marscopone/strawberry. I had the shrimp and grits-OMG- the best outside of New Orleans. Creme Brûlée for dessert. The best experience.
Our room was in the carriage house, overlooking the Elk River. It was quiet and serene.
Breakfast was gourmet. Tim, the other owner, was. Her. We had fresh vegetable frittata, homemade salsa, potato puff, fresh fruit plate, scones and blueberry muffins. Most produce came from their farm or garden..
Definitely would return here!!!
