“Best B&B Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

We stayed in front room on second floor and thoroughly enjoyed innkeeper Monica and her dad Carl. The front porch, bedrooms and common areas are quite charming and reflected the historic landmark character of this home. We stayed 3 days and each breakfast was better than the next. There was plenty to eat and everything was delicious. Monica and Carl were friendly and very knowledgeable about the area. We enjoyed a wonderful time and felt most welcome.

Room Tip: Each of the 3 rooms I looked at was great. We liked the second floor front bedrooms which had air c...

As soon as we arrived, Monica treated us like family. The rooms were large and very clean. There were several sitting areas on the first floor but we choose the front porch to sit on and enjoy the evening. The breakfast was delicious: blueberry pancakes, freshly made blueberry syrup, fruit, tomatoes, bacon, chocolate chip muffins, orange juice and coffee, served on the front porch. If you're in the area, we highly recommend staying here.

We stayed at the James Wylie House for 2 nights in August 2012. The room was large, and very comfortable. Ceiling fan and air-conditioner if needed. Monica took great care of us. The breakfasts were delicious. The mountains are spectacular.

We stayed on the third (top) floor of this 1819 brick historic home, and enjoyed every minute! The top floor is a two bedroom suite - one has 2 double beds and the other has a queen. Both have in-room air conditioners, exposed timber ceilings, wide pine floor boards, and share a comfortable bathroom. Monica, the Innkeeper, and her father are very engaging with conversation and lend a nice touch of local West Virginia hospitality, as well as wonderfully prepared breakfasts!
In addition to the third floor 2 bedroom suite, there are at least 4 other rooms available at this Inn.
Monica is a wealth of information on local shops, restaurants, attractions, and hometown economic development.
A wonderful alternative to the beautiful Greenbrier Hotel, at half the price.

My wife and I recently stayed the weekend at the James Wylie House to celebrate our 2nd anniversary. We wanted to get away to a quiet, relaxing place in the beautiful West Virginia mountains, and this place did the trick! At about half the cost of the cheapest room at the nearby Greenbrier, we received personalized and friendly service, a comfortable room, and delicious homemade breakfasts! We spent the day sightseeing in nearby Lewisburg (tons of nice shops, restaurants, and historical landmarks) and taking a bunker tour at the Greenbrier (a must). We went back to Lewisburg to eat dinner at Food & Friends, a great recommendation by innkeeper Monica! Our breakfast favorites were the mixed berry pancakes and peach cobbler! Both nights we were there, the weather was so perfect we were able to turn off the A/C, open our windows, turn on the fan and enjoy the cool mountain air!

Terrific Find!!!! Our first stay to the white sulphur springs area,had a business meeting at the nearby Greenbriar Inn. Would not have stayed anywhere but the James Wylie Inn. We stayed in the cabin a must!!!! Very comfortable, clean, and inviting. Monica the innkeeper and her father are a delight, wonderful gourmet breakfasts on the main porch of the house were amazing, we could have stayed on the porch the whole day, great conversation and and the feeling we have made 2 new friends!!! They are very knowledgable about the area. Used their guidance for area restaurants. We are for sure planning to book another stay,The greenbriar is completely overrated and overpriced and very dated. There are much better choices in the area to stay, also in the neighboring town of Lewisburg .

Room Tip: The cabin is wonderful adjacent to the main house

Lucky for us, we were able to reserve the entire main house when we needed to be in the area for a wedding. If the cabin had been available, we would have booked that too. Unfortunately, our overflow had to stay at a nearby motel.

The rooms were great and the breakfast was over the top! No one went away hungry, that's for sure.
We enjoyed White Sulphur restaurants and Lewisburg was close by and we explored its many interesting shops and historic sites. The James Wylie house was a perfect "base camp" for our two night stay... We just wish it could have been longer!

(We had five couples in the main house and it worked perfectly! We will long remember this wedding weekend.)
