An almost eight mile journey up the mountain (on a paved road!) brings you to the Inn. The Main Inn is of rustic log construction with a native stone fireplace along the wall of the Great Room. The Inn’s seven guest rooms are each uniquely decorated. All have private baths. Some include two-person jacuzzis and fireplaces. Our log cabin suites include a king bed, whirlpool tub, gas fireplace, loft with queen sleeper sofa, mini kitchen, and TV. We also offer a fully-furnished 1-bedroom cabin with a kitchenette, screened porch, decks, and Direct TV. A full breakfast is served for all guests. Refreshments are available in the afternoon. Dinner is available on most evenings at an additional charge Activities at the Inn include billiards and book, video & music libraries. Star Gazing is highly recommended since the absence of city lights makes the stars appear brighter and close enough to touch them. While peaceful and unpretentious, the Inn does offer television with Direct TV in the game room, in the event you miss civilization just a bit. Wireless Internet access. Hot tub on deck. Guests will enjoy the abundance of wildlife, wildflowers, birds, smallmouth bass and trout available in this protected wilderness area. Or, if you prefer, simply sit back and read a book on the porch, taking in the majestic views of the Smoke Hole Canyon and enjoying the harmony with nature.

My long time friend took me here for my 50th birthday - what a treat! The Inn is lovely - cozy and comfortable. Our cabin was beautiful and felt brand new. Ed and Carol were wonderful hosts. We hiked the mountain all day with our packet lunch - thanks Ed - and returned ready for our wine tasting,5-course gourmet meal - it was an incredible experience! Lastly, we enjoyed the most relaxing and fantastic massages. I cannot wait to return with my husband for our anniversary!

My husband and I recently spent a few nights at the inn. What a great place. It was definitely quiet and relaxing. Ed, Alli and TJ all took care of us. The food was fantastic, the suite we had was really clean and comfortable. We enjoyed meeting new people at breakfast and dinner and chatting away the hours in our rocking chairs on the porches. We got to play with Alli's new puppy Berkley. I can't wait to go again to see how much he has grow. What a wonderful time, we could not of ask for more!

We stayed last week at this lovely Bed And Breakfast. What a wonderful experience! The Inn is most charming. Can not say enough good things about the inn keepers and staff. The folks are so accommodating and the food was excellent. The view of Smoke Hole Canyon is amazing. We will definitely return. Thanks to Ed, Carol, and Allie.

My husband and I went to North Fork Inn for our honeymoon. It was our first BnB experience, and we are happy to say, we are now BnBers for life. Upon arriving, we saw a herd of white tail deer. The atmosphere was perfect for a couple just looking to relax. The rooms exceeded our expectations, and were all very comfortable. Carol was a fantastic inn keeper, and accommodated our needs. We found out that Ed typically cooks for the Inn and was away, but we were very impressed with the Carol's cooking. We liked the food so much, we took home several recipes. We enjoyed lounging in the main area, relaxing in the hot tub, sitting next to the fireplace, sitting out on the patio reading, and knowing that we could hike around if we wanted to. We were able to book massages, and were completely impressed by the set up for one of the most healing massages either of us have had. We have since recommended this BnB to all our friends and family.

Ed and Carol do it right. This Inn is gorgeous. Everything is incredibly well thought out. I was surprised at how considerate they were in placing artistic maps on the wall to help people get used to the area. The surroundings are equal to the Inns beauty (and even surpass it, which is impressive). For those who love the outdoors, this place is as good as it gets. State parks abound, nature areas are at every turn, the drive alone is gorgeous. The food at North Fork Mountain is incredible. The service unbeatable. But the best part is this: Ed and Carol are truly beautiful people. If you come here, you will not regret it.

We have discovered a few nice places, here and in Europe. I lift my hat off for such a remotely located little quality oriented compound. We are a family of four with a couple of teenagers who were taught the bad habits of luxury. The 1.9 miles one way trail to the top end of the ridge was fabulous. The second most important quality for us is service. You get it 100% and my 15 year old daughter calls it "hospitality". Ed, Carol, and team were very hospitable. We are coming back. The no cell signal is very cool nowadays. Keep it up ! Consistency is going to be key for long term success. The gravel road is something...

This secluded inn is perfect in every way. The beautiful setting with a view that goes on for miles is just the beginning. The owners, Ed and Carol are exceptional hosts. The breakfast and dinners are beautifuly presented and very tasty. There is a wonderful hike to the top of the mountain that starts just feet from the front door. End the hike with a soak in the hot tub, then play pool in the map room. don't forget to try one of Carol's cookies. You will find you cannot stop at one. And, did I mention breakfast! WOW. This was a wonderful and relaxing experience, one which we cannot wait to do all over again. We love this place!

North Fork Mountain Inn is an absolute gem. Carol and Ed are truly lovely hosts that totally spoil their guests with everything from comfy robes for the hot tub to the always available cookies and tea to a great wine tasting on Saturday night. There is a nice hike right above the lodge. In fact, with Ed's cooking and Carol's ready willingness to pack us a picnic lunch at the last minute, we managed to not get in the car at all during the weekend. And, even when the time did come, the innkeepers didn't rush us out the door -- instead we spent an extra few hours soaking up the West Virginia hills from the coziness of the inn.

As we walked up the steps to the inn, the surroundings called 'relax, rejuvinate, renew.' When we entered the Inn, the smell of home-cooking permiated the air. We received a warm greeting from Ed, as well as a tour of the Inn, and an offer to help with luggage. We quickly scrapped all plans to tour the area and opted instead to enjoy the Inn and it's surrounding beauty. We took in the breath-taking view from rockers on the porch, hiked, and star-gazed while soaking in the hot-tub. We miss Ed's cooking and Carol's cookies. We look forward to visiting again!
