My wife, daughter (27), and son (24) went back to W.Va for a family reunion and decided to give this place a try because of overcrowding at the family home. We read all the reviews we could find on this particular B&B and decided that the owner must have written them. Not one negative and everyone ranted about how great a cook the owner is. What we found was nothing like the reviews. IT WAS EVEN BETTER. We met Monica upon our arrival as she was picking fresh blackberries from her garden. When she explained they were for the next morning's breakfast, she had both my son and I already on the hook and half-way into the boat. After a short tour of the main house, we headed back to the log cabin that we had reserved. We loved the idea of staying in a place built in the 1790's and so rich in history. Although a little apprehensive over what the space and accommodations must be, this place turned out to be exactly what any doctor would order - a full kitchen, living room and dining area downstairs, and a bedroom and a half upstairs. The slight tilt in the floor adds the right touch of character and serves as a reminder of when it was built. The other guests from the "Big House" jokingly called my family the "Cabin People" when we would walk around for breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, Monica was a delightful mix of large city Pennsylvania that had assimilated well into the W.Va countryside and her cooking is the pie'ce de re'sistance. As a cook, I can appreciate great food and savor breakfast as my favorite meal. After eating just three breakfasts with her, I can't wait to see what she concocts for the next time we go back there. Even if we end up staying with my wife's family, you can bet that I will try my best to sneak in to one of her front porch feasts. We have stayed in a few B&Bs from Texas to Massachusetts and consider this one to be the absolute best.
Monica: I promised to bring you back some highbred Blackberry plants from Tennessee when we come back through. Hopefully we will see you next July.
We took our family of 6 there for a weekend. The little family cabin was so charming. The owner even made cookies for the kids. We felt right at home yet spoiled at the same time. I don't think there is anyone we know that doesn't know how much we loved it.
