Breath of Heaven Bed & Breakfast

Hogueland Lane 215 Dawn Lane, Petersburg, WV 26847 USA (Show map)


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.

Quiet, peaceful, quaint, and very accommodating. We had a great stay and wish we could have stayed longer. They served up a great breakfast and gave mapping and site tips for our trip.A little hard to find, but well; worth it.

A piece of heaven!

Ed and Geri are wonderful, thoughtful hosts! Truly a home away from home. Great conversations, fantastic breakfasts, accommodating of all needs. We will continue to come back! Lori Harrison and Mark Mothershead

This B&B is operated by a wonderful couple who are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The property is located in a very quiet area with mountains surrounding. The rooms are very well thought out and comfortable. All needs are met and then some. Dietary needs are confirmed the night before and a hearty homemade meal is prepared and presented the next morning. You can not beat the view as you dine on your meal. The hospitality and comfort will exceed your expectations and you will be pleased to have chosen to stay here.

We stayed 2 nights Ed and Geri were very friendly and their cooking was very tasty. I would recommend staying here.

Charming B&B

My husband and I went to celebrate my birthday and we had a wonderful stay here. The hosts were very nice and friendly. We enjoyed swinging on the porch and enjoying the mountain views with a cup of coffee and delicious treats provided by the hosts. Soaking in the hot tub was an added enjoyment. The breakfast was also very good. The room is cozy and decorated with lot of antique stuff and we enjoyed the room. We loved the personal touches and we will definitely be back to enjoy the beauty of this place in another season.

Awesome everything

My stay at Breath of Heaven was a wonderful way to end a long business trip. Geri and Ed met me at the car and carried my suitcase to my room, which was beautifully decorated, A nice cup of hot tea along with homemade cookie brittle was just the perfect touch after a long, long day. I woke up in the morning, to the smell of delicious homemade crepes, with a touch of cinnamon, cream cheese filling, topped with homemade syrup and fresh strawberries, The special blend of coffee was perfect! I just wish I could have stayed in this little bit of "Almost Heaven" longer!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Breath of Heaven Bed & Breakfast. Our room was very clean and cozy! The views are breathtaking, we were most certainly surrounded by a beautiful landscape. The owners were inviting and genuinely interested in talking to us, not to mention breakfast was great each morning. We can't wait to go back!

Beautiful view, wonderful stay!

We booked a last minute weekend trip at Breath of Heaven, not knowing exactly what we were getting. The room was private and comfortable, the owners were friendly and inviting, and the food was absolutely delicious! Not to mention the view from the B&B and its location close by many local tourist spots. All in all, this was the most wonderful stay we've ever had.

Close to Nature
