North Fork Mountain Inn

Smoke Hole Road P.O. Box 114, Cabins, WV 26855 USA (Show map)

About

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.

Great quiet away in the mountains!

Stayed in one of the suites and enjoyed every minute of it. The meals were wonderful, from the breakfasts to the dinners they were cooked with time and appreciation. A wonderful wine selection and great access to mountain activities but with exclusivity of a hideaway location. Great views on the porch during morning coffee.


Outpost of Luxury in the Wilderness

This remote location makes it the perfect getaway from the crowds and stress of Washington DC. We enjoyed the peaceful seclusion of this mountain hideaway. The food and wine were world class and Carol and Ed are the perfect hosts. Our favorite activity was relaxing in the hot tub on the deck after hiking the North Fork Mountain trail. Passing the afternoon in a rocker on the front porch was also a favorite of my wife Celeste. We look forward to returning this fall to take in the beautiful colors in Smoke Hole Canyon.


Lovely getaway

My husband and I recently stayed at the North Fork Mountain Inn for a 2-night getaway. We stayed in a terrific suite, which was very well kept and very clean. Ed and Carol were very hospitable - e ate dinner on site both nights and enjoyed great food for both the dinners and breakfasts. We also thoroughly enjoyed the hike to the summit of the North Fork mountain and enjoyed massages on site with John. Would definitely recommend!


Fabulous girlfriends weekend!

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!


Great time at North Fork Mtn. Inn

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!


Such a positive experience!

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.


Perfect for honeymooners

4.6 on March 18, 2013

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.


Gorgeous!

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.


Our 18th Wedding Anniversary

Wonderful Hospitality, Fabulous Food, Beautiful Rooms, very clean, Spectacular Views. This was the best place to stay. Very comfortable, lots to do. Hiking, Hot Tub under the stars, champagne in the rooms ( if ordered ). I would recommend the North Fork Mountain Inn to all my friends. I can't wait to go back.


They Have High Standards

4.8 on October 10, 2011

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...
