Breath of Heaven Bed & Breakfast

Built in 2001, Breath of Heaven B&B was established in 2006 with you in mind. The cottage above and the barn below gives this property a feeling of being down home on the farm. Neighborhood horses grazing and cattle completes the scene with a mountainous backdrop. All rooms are tastefully decorated and easily accessible. A hot breakfast served in the Great Room or on the deck will start your day of nearby activities or events. Or simply read a book on the back porch swing, take a stroll down a country lane, or watch the sun set and the stars appear while soaking in the hot tub.

My husband and I stayed at B&Bs whenever we had the chance. He's gone now and I decided to treat myself, needed to see some mountains and quilts for my 70th birthday. And made 2 new friends! Perfect name for a perfect respite from the world.

Delightful Bed and Breakfast

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Breath of Heaven Bed & Breakfast. Ed was out of town but Geri Moser is a delightful innkeeper. The rooms are pleasant, the views are great and Geri's cooking is amazing. I look forward to more stays in the future.

Friendly hosts, comfortable place, wonderful breakfast

My first time in the US at a B&B. There wasn't much availability in Canaan Valley so decided on Breath of Heaven. Rate is good and place is clean and comfortable, hosts are very friendly. Arrived a bit late as we got caught in wicked blizzard. They provided some dinner since everything was pretty much closed due to weather. Breakfast both days was superb. Unfortunately we didn't get to use the hot tub -- it was about -5 degrees outside at night with snow. Anyway, we got the smaller room and it was nice with private bathroom. All very clean and nice. Overall I recommend the B&B.

Charming B&B

The view is gorgeous and the food absolutely delicious! The owners are more than hospitable and down to earth, which suits us very well. They are very accommodating and enjoyable to be around.

Warm and Beautiful B&B

My partner and I stayed at Breath of Heaven while hiking in Dolly Sods, and the accommodations were everything we hoped for and more! First of all, the location is beautiful, surrounded by rolling hills and breathtaking/serene scenery. Second of all, Ed and Geri were the most gracious hosts! They greeted us upon arrival, gave us a neat list of food and other attractions nearby, provided us with a hiking map of the area, and made sure we had everything we needed to complete our stay (popcorn for watching a movie, an elegant tea selection (with the most amazing cookie brittle), wifi, and more). Also the view from the balcony at night was a great bonus! Lastly, Geri was kind enough to ask us when we would prefer breakfast, and was very accommodating! We woke up to the delightful aroma of fresh crepes with strawberries and sweet cream, which helped to prepare us for our day long hike. I would absolutely recommend Ed and Geri's B&B to anyone visiting from out of town (especially if you are planning a visit to Dolly Sods or Seneca Creek). You will have a quaint, comfortable, and relaxing stay!

Most beautiful place to stay

The mountain views were amazing! Geri and Ed were comfortable to be around and very helpful going the extra mile with every detail. The food was wonderful! The best was sitting on the porches watching the hummingbirds play in the evening and chatting about the day. Everything was very clean and beautifully decorated. It was the perfect location to explore the Potomac Highlands.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the lovely words of encouragement. You were a joy to have. If I gave you a recipe for Cookie Brittle I may have left out to also add one cup of sugar. :)

Truly a Breath of Heaven!

What a fantastic experience! Not only were Geri and Ed wonderful host and hostess, they made us feel so welcome. The furnishings and decorations took us back to an earlier time in our lives, to an era whose memories we cherish. We never want to have to stay in a hotel room again; it will always be a B&B! Thank You Geri and Ed

what a truly remarkable place!
