Five stars all the way

5 on April 12, 2015

I generally distrust 5-star reviews, but this is one of those cases where it was more than amply earned. Martha and Dick are superb hosts, always looking for little ways to make your stay more pleasant. Their attention to detail is beyond superb - every time either one of us though, "I wonder if they have ...?" or "Do you think they provided ...?" Martha and Dick had been there before us. The breakfasts are amazing, and for some that may be the only meal you need to get you through the day. The cabin itself is a delight filled with small discoveries, and that fact that you are completely unplugged from the rest of the world only adds to the value. The surrounding forests are a delight to hike through, and the view from the front porch in the evening, quietly rocking away, as the sunsets behind the mountains are reflected in the pond out front, make the ending of each day memorable. Rest assured, we will be back.

Idyllic !

Stopped over for one night in Feb 2015 having seen posting on website. Beautiful warm and tastefully decorated cabin -exceptional craftsmanship. Despite a domestic crisis we were provided an excellent service and a lovely homecooked breakfast. Thank-you ! May be a little out of the way for some, but this is a beautiful quiet location - which I would thoroughly recommend. I want to go back ! (Next time would try Cairo for dinner - local State Park Lodge less than average for dinner/service).

We have shared this dining concern with the restaurant in question and they are looking into the situation. Thank you for helping us make our guests’ experiences better.

Great B&B tucked away in the country

5 on January 03, 2015

This is a great B&B located in a relatively remote and quiet area. Friendly owners, incredible food, plenty of recreational activities not too far away. We will be returning in warmer weather for a better chance to take advantage of the outdoor activities.

The Innkeepers are great hosts. The cabin was exquisite. I would recommend the cabin to anyone. A beautiful place.

What a Treat !!!

Our 2 night visit was exceptional. Martha & Dick were very gracious hosts and their breakfast fare superb. They accommodated my wife's gluten free diet exceptionally well and the breads were very very good! Thank you. I don't think I have enough nice adjectives to say how awesome the Log House was. So unique and suitable for a quiet stay. No hustle and bustle here. Relatively close to the Rails to Trails and North Bend state park facilities made it perfect for us. There are some unique attractions in Parkersburg and Williamstown and we would like to return to explore more. Do follow the Hartleys directions vs Google! It is secluded, but not too hard to find. Thanks, Martha & Dick. See you again soon.

Staying here was outstanding. It was extremely clean, and it was very peaceful. Plus the breakfast was phenomenal.

Great Getaway

5 on July 15, 2014

We had to visit this place under unfortunate circumstances. However, we were delighted that we found this B & B. It was a comfort during grieving times. Both Martha and Dick were great hosts. Martha makes the MOST amazing breakfast you will ever have. Oh and the log cabin . . . a great getaway from it all (no phone, internet, or TV). We really enjoyed our evening on the porch sitting in the rocking chairs, listening to bull frogs in the pond out front. All while a deer sneaks out of the woods to steal a bite of the marigolds. In the morning we would walk the driveway which sneaks through an endless woods which harmonizes with birds singing. We highly recommend this B & B. Thank you Martha and Dick!

Peepers and Tranquility

Early spring in this bucolic hidden valley treasure of a log home hide-a-way brings out the peepers (tree frogs) around the pond. Just sitting in the rocking chairs on the porch is perfect relaxation.

Historical and Artful

Authentic historical tribute to early American construction with 20th century amenities done in an artful way. A peaceful getaway!

A treasure in Wild & Wonderful West Virginia!

We were delighted to find this beautiful, log house tucked away in the windy roads of W. Va. A step back in time w/all the modern amenities!
