Recently my husband and I spent a weekend with Joann and Arthur at their beautiful home. This was our first stay at a B&B. This was tbe type of B&B that makes you a real fan of this type of inn. Quiet, clean, good food but most of all the atmosphere created by the owners is inviting and warm. Yes, I would definitely go back. Linda and Dwight
I only wish I could have stayed longer at A Nature's Song. I wanted to get out and see the West Virginia countryside and reflect on my way to a family funeral, and this experience exceeded my expectations. Joanne and Arthur were so warm and friendly, I felt like I was with family. The Rose Room was very large, as was the bathroom, well-appointed and spotlessly clean. The linens were heavenly. The location is deep in the country and wonderfully quiet, yet they have TV in the room and free WiFi so I knew I could be connected if I wanted to. But I really didn't want to. The property is lovely and peaceful. You can walk out in the woods or up the road, and there are comfortable rooms to sit in and read. The breakfast was extra special - baked eggs with herbs and butter, homemade toasted bread, fresh fruit with mint, juice, plenty of coffee, bacon, just wonderful. I can't recommend this spot enough, and I hope to go back one day. xoxo Joanne and Arthur!
You may find yourself passing through West Virginia on your way home or a part of your overall journey, but a stay at A Nature’s Song is a destination of its own. As you enter the small town of Mannington, and wind your way down the forested lane nestled in a protected forested area, tension will ease and excitement will build for having come to an enchanted place. You will be greeted warmly by two friendly, kind and down-to-earth folk, Arthur and Joanna, who have a natural ability to make you feel at home right away. we were immediately invited to be a part of the Reeve family. We spent the night on the back porch with refreshments with great conversation, and walked the property, including the beautiful pond, and enjoyed the comfy rocking chairs on the big country porch. The house is custom built, and the structural detail and upgraded finishes and furnishing were truly beautiful and of good taste. Joanna’s house and the B&B is immaculately clean. There isn’t anyone reading this review that can possibly have a cleaner house. And Joanna has taken great care to make every detail special, down to the microfiber sheets, the decorative wastebasket linings, and the handmade soaps. We stayed in the Lilac Room, and had a great’s night’s sleep in a comfy bed. There is a flat screen TV, a writing desk for you to set up you laptop with WIFI, and a large private bath for you to spend a quiet moment cleaning up for the night. Breakfast was delightful and healthy and the coffee was ready when we came downstairs. Honestly, I can’t wait to go back this Fall. A Nature’s Song is a great place to regain your strength, your wits, and refocus your energy back into whatever is you do. The cabin looked cool, a little out the way, and look private and cozy. These are just good people. Arthur and Joanna offer a place to stay, but they are also interested in sharing their blessings with others, and it will warm your heart.
We recently spent a wonderful night at this lovely B & B near Mannington, WV, and enjoyed every minute of it! The owners, Joanne and Arthur welcomed us as family and graciously allowed us to hike and explore their spacious wooded property. We are nature lovers and there is an abundance of wildlife such as songbirds, deer and frogs singing in the nearby ponds. The Lavender room was beautiful and had every amenity thoughtfully provided and we slept very peacefully and comfortably. The cuisine was absolutely delicious; and they utilize local meats and ingredients, some of which is grown on their property. We will definitely stay at A Nature's Song again soon; probably try to experience each amazing season in the nearby hills of beautiful West Virginia. Steve and Melinda
From the time we drove down the country lane and walked through the front door we felt very welcomed. Joanna and Arthur are wonderful people who opened up their home to us. The rooms are spacious and VERY clean, the food is wonderful. The woods, the ponds, the wildlife and peacefulness are truly a little piece of West Virginia's Heaven. We feel we came as strangers and left as friends. Scott and Heike K.
West Virginia is "wild and wonderful", and so is A Nature's Song: There is the wild nature - in this case, beautiful, endless woods, ponds, and wildlife, and a wonderful bed and breakfast that is tastefully decorated and offers comfortable rooms, a spacious reading area, and a cozy dining area with a view overlooking the property. The two hosts, Joanna and Arthur, were marvelous and gave me a warm welcome that made me feel at home immediately. In the morning, after a delightful breakfast, I went for a walk through the woods just as the sun was breaking through and felt as if I was at my own private Walden Pond. I highly recommend staying at A Nature's Song! Julia Knobloch
For our first visit to West Virginia we wanted a quiet out-of-the-way B&B. Nature's Song fit the bill! The forest setting provides a secluded backdrop for Joanne & Arthur's immaculate inn. The breakfasts were tasty & we enjoyed a gourmet dinner on our first night. We highly recommend Nature's Song--you won't be disappointed!
This b&b was far more than we expected. The atmosphere was wonderful and relaxing. Joann and Arthur allow you to be secluded and alone but engage and entertain you if you want it. The property is incredible and perfect if you're looking for something off the beaten track. All in all, it was a stellar experience, well worth the money that left us not wanting to leave.
Among a gentle running stream with an amazing view including a pond lies the pride and joy of two fantastic people, built from the timber on property and water from the clearest and cleanest spring.. This was our first experience to a B&B and we were totally impressed by what Arthur and Joanna have created. If you ever have the desire to visit Mother Nature at her best then stop by this B&B. Jeff and Valori
What a wonderful place! So clean you could eat off the floor. Very comfortable and spacious rooms. Very gracious and kind innkeepers and very good conversations. Peaceful and beautiful place, no traffic or city noise, just birds singing, and lots of humming birds. The food was awesome too! Definitely an outstanding place, and we will return. You should try it... my words cannot explain just how good it is.
As soon as we walked in the door, we felt as if we were returning home. Joanna and Arthur seemed like old friends. Their home is super clean, our room was large and cozy and full of wonderful antiques. The country setting of this bed and breakfast is beautiful. The breakfast was wonderful. The peach crumble was awesome, and that was just the beginning of a great culinary experience. We had a great time here!
Nature provides the entertainment here, if you are looking to get away from it all this is THE place. We rented the cabin over the weekend for a romantic getaway and it was perfect. I would challenge anyone to find just one speck of dust anywhere in the house or the cabin. Joanna is an immaculate housekeeper and a great cook, I would recommend to get dinner at least one night, you will not be disappointed. Little special touches were appreciated like fresh flowers in the cabin and on the breakfast/dinner table as well as snacks and wine left for us to enjoy. We booked the cabin for the privacy and to spend much needed alone time together, but found ourselves lingering after meals, for the engaging conversation with both Art and Joanna which we enjoyed very much; it was our first visit but it felt more like staying at a friends house instead of a place of business. We had a wonderful time and have already booked our next visit this time with dinner both nights. Dagmar and Kenneth Harrison Morgantown
We had a most relaxing weekend. Our hosts were nothing but kind. Their home is beautiful and they are very heplful with things to do in the nearby towns. The breakfasts served were absolutely delicious. Diane and David
We had a wonderful trip. We had wonderful weather for a early March stay and were able to take a walk and enjoy the ponds. Dinner was great, as was breakfast. It was my first stay in a bed and breakfast and would love to do it again. Joann and Art really made us feel at home.
We came across this wonderful place on Bedandbreakfast.com while looking for a quiet place to spend a weekend. Our expectations were exceeded! Joanna and Arthur are wonderful hosts. They are very friendly and ensured that we were comfortable and had what we needed. We stayed in the cabin, which is rustically decorated, cozy and comfortable. Most importantly, there was NO TV and NO cell phone service (there are TVs in the two guest rooms in the house). That added to our enjoyment as we spent a few hours sitting on the porch, drinking wine and having good conversation. The claw foot tub was a huge hit with Lynette as she had not used one of those since she was a child. The two guest rooms located in the house are beautifully decorated in country themes, have private baths, and a common sitting area. Now to my favorite part of the weekend - the breakfasts. Everything was absolutely delicious. Joanna not only takes great pride in the quality of the food, but the presentation as well. The table was beautiful and there was quiet music playing in the background. If you leave hungry it is your own fault. Arthur also takes great pride in the outside appearance of the house and grounds which are very neat and clean. There is a pond near the house and the place is surrounded by woods. It is far enough away from neighbors, so there is no noise, but the sounds of nature. Mannington is a small town, but we found things to do. We visited Pack Rats and Malones, two second hand stores in the town as we enjoy treasure hunting. There are also a couple of small diners, but we didn't get to try them this trip because we were so full from breakfast. There is a McDonalds, Subway, Rite Aid, etc. Fairmont, a larger town, is just a few miles down the road. We will be back to enjoy Nature’s Song. We hope that you will include them in your future vacation plans. Dan and Lynette Morgantown, WV
Joanna and Arthur set goals and achieve them! They determined they wanted to own/operate a B&B and they have "set the bar" high for other inn-keepers. They are terrific hosts who treat their guests like they would hope to be treated if roles were reversed, by taking time to engage in actual conversation, a talent that is dying in this age of social media. Their plan began long before they opened to guests and it is evident in the high level of fine detail you will encounter during your stay. Nothing is left to chance and if you need anything, all you have to do is ask and Joanna or Arthur will take care of it. The rooms are spacious--huge, suite arrangement with large private bath--and decorated to the last detail with the best part being an extremely comfortable bed. They began with a blank slate and have developed a serene, friendly B&B setting. They take care of all the work involved themselves and do an outstanding job of it! You would believe they are graduates of a fine Hotel/Restaurant Management program at a prestigious university. The whole property is clean and well-kept. The delicious breakfast of fresh tomato, toast, quiche - -crust of Canadian Bacon, with baked-pear starter, OJ, and milk, began the day. The lovely dishes were of antique quality. We would stay at this B&B again given the opportunity, and suggest others give it a try.
My wife and I celbrated our anniversary weekend here. We could not have been happier with the whole experience. We had dinner one night with our package. We had read the rave reviews, but still were not prepared for the migic of Joanna's cooking! She deserves all of the accolades and more! She is an excellent chef/cook. Be prepared to be delighted. The house and rooms are roomy, compfortable and beautifully appointed. The setting is gorgeous. Joanna nd Arthur are wonderful hosts and excellent company. Good conversationalists, they are proud and passionate about the land they call home and so generaously share with you. We are so pleased to call these folks neighbors, and now friends. This is the very best part of being a West Virginian. You will have a wonderful experience here. We cannot praise it enough...
My wife and I spent two delightful days at A Natures Song B&B. It was a unique experience for people like us who love nature. Joanna & Arthur have designed a perfect home in a perfect setting. We were impressed by many special touches they have created for their guests. They were congenial and informative hosts. Anyone staying in the area would do well to check them out. If we did not live in Texas, we would be frequent guests.
My new wife and I completed our honeymoon at this bed and breakfast. I will say if you want to get away from it all without being completely isolated you need to go here. I will also suggest dining at the inn at least one evening as Joanna's cooking is out of this world. We stayed at the Cabin on the Hill and at times during the night all we could hear was truly a nature's song. The sheets on the bed were probably the softest I have ever felt. Be warned about breakfast however. You will not leave the table hungry but the positive is you can eat a light lunch. It is a small bed and breakfast but both Joanna and Art want to genuinely make your stay with them unforgettable and as relaxing as possible. I would recommend this to anyone I know, especially if they want to get away from it all.
JoAnn and Arthur are the gold standard in B&B hosts. Our overnight was a gift from our daughter, a former guest who stayed with her husband as a complimentary Veterans Day perk. The wonderful gourmet comfort food was served in casual elegance with many unique touches - all homemade fresh with healthy ingredients, and personalized from choice to presentation with subtle background music providing a relaxing atmosphere. We had a total experience - the house, grounds, food, new friends, personal pampering with numerous little details and surprises. Visit and discover it all for yourself! We'll be back.
The Natures Song is a real gem. I never dreamed that I could find such a relaxing place as the Nature’s Song. Joanna is a wonderful cook; the meals she provides are top notch. The B&B is immaculate and serene. The Nature’s Song is in a beautiful setting in the quiet hills near Mannington, WV. Nature abounds and peace prevails. If you really want to get away from it all, this is the place to go. We stayed here multi times and have always been treated as number one
Our stay at A Natures Song B&B was perfect. This was our first visit to WV where we didn't stay with family. Staying with Joanna and Arthur was like staying with family, but better! The food was outstanding. I couldn't wait to see what was for breakfast each day and I was never disappointed. Joanna and Arthur were very friendly and helpful. They helped us to find our way in late at night after our flight was delayed. We enjoyed the decor, both inside and out. Joanna's attention to detail provided a pleasant surprise at every turn. I enjoyed the soft music, delicious home cooking, and the hummingbird perch right outside the window for breakfast time birdwatching! I would highly recommend A Natures Song to anyone looking for some R&R in a beautiful setting.
What a great get-away in the beautiful hills of WV. The place was spotless and the food was perfect. You could not ask for two finer hosts. Loved every second of the stay. We were here for our 2nd anniversary. And we will be back very soon. Thank you so much to Joanna and Arthur for making our stay so special.......John and Amy Jones Fairmont WV
Joanna & Arthur have a delightful B&B tucked away in beautiful surroundings. Everything was spotless and charming with the rooms larger than you often find in B&Bs. And the FOOD! Joanna is a wizard in her lovely kitchen. If you're in the area you have to visit them! Peg & John (Kent Island Maryland)
Tucked back in a serene setting you'll find Nature's Song both warm and welcoming. The hosts, Joanna & Art, have a wonderful, well appointed bed & breakfast. The food was fabulous and plentiful! If you're looking for a relaxing get-a-way nestled in the mountains...this is your place. We're looking forward to a return visit!
Joe and I stayed at A Nature's Song B&B on 5/19/2012. It was a wonderful way to end a day of many hours on a motorcycle. Innkeepers Joanna and Arthur welcomed us to their beautiful country style B&B as though we were longtime friends. After relaxing, chatting, and enjoying beverages on the screened porch, the four of us moved to the kitchen for made-from-scratch chocolate cake with chocolate icing (also made from scratch). Joe and I then retired to spectacular accomodations! Our room was really a suite with its own bathroom. The comfort of our bed was five-star! We slept that evening with the windows up and could hear no interstate traffic noise! The next morning we enjoyed a fabulous breakfast while overlooking a tranquil pond and beautiful flowers. We cannot say enough good things about our stay at A Nature's Song.
This was a quiet place tucked away from traffic and noise. Joanna really catered to my desire for a healthy veg breakfast. It was great and filling! The room and bathroom were extremely spacious. The bed's mattress was so very comfortable, the sheets were super-soft, and the towels were thick.
Way back in the hills, sounds of nature only, superlative couple as your host and hostess. This is a unique place and is for the serious rest/de-stress needs. "Country Breakfast" is a far too modest description for the morning meal that is every bit as pretty as tasty. A first offering one day was a perfectly sized fresh strawberry and whipped-fruit topping - so- creamy and mint from their garden. Modestly decorated with little clutter and many family heirlooms - this is no old gingerbready Victorian. The home is made of timber cut and cured from the 145 acre parcel, and the wild turkeys and hummingbirds are your neighbors. Sheets felt almost like chamois, and the mattresses firm yet soft. Ah! Modest cost made this stay unforgettable and well worth the out-of-town trip. Mannington is a great town to park and walk around as it is full of interesting, historic buildings in various stages of repair. There are two museums as well, and a Dairy Queen for those who splurge once in a while on a soft-serve ice cream cone. A free-standing cabin will soon be offered as well as the two lovely rooms. Joanna and Arthur show the trademark genteel respect toward each other that I know well in West Virginia. Not stuffy, modern and warm - what else could you want? Oh, did I mention the great roads? Important for you car!
