Good experience

This trip was our first experience with a B & B. We enjoyed our visit. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was good. Larry and Paula are very friendly hosts. They were very helpful with suggestions for the area. The view was beautiful and we enjoyed quiet time on the porches.

Very nice trip

We stayed there and went to the Cass Railroad and Green Bank telescope. It is a great location to do that from. Larry and Paula are very nice people and are great hosts. We would give this place a thumbs up.

Larry and Paula are great hosts and we enjoyed our stay very much. The guestroom was spacious as was the attached bathroom. The Garretson's were very knowledgeable about the area and made great suggestions for sites we could visit and resturants in the area.

Cozy and Friendly Country Charm!

A wonderful bed & breakfast in a gorgeous country setting! We truly enjoyed our stay here! Paula and Larry are such warm, welcoming hosts. Our room was very clean and cozy! The house is a very charming, country farmhouse. The breakfasts were delicious too. We enjoyed homemade pumpkin pancakes and fantastic omelettes! If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing place to just be, you've found it!

Peace and quiet at its best. Quaint, no frills, and very pleasant.

Larry and Paula's lovely home is a great base if you want calm, tranquility and a lovely place to stay. If you crave wholesomeness, cleanliness and have a yearn for a simple life, you couldn't find a nicer place. Great hosts, unobtrusive but friendly, accommodating and helpful. Lovely fellow guests. A firepit in the garden at dusk. What more could a visiting Brit want. a great base for the Greenbrier Valley attractions. Great food in Snowshoe!! Thank you. Michele and Tim

10 Year Anniversary

My wife and I came here on our ten year. We had a pleasant time and it was extremely quite. It was away from all the tourist traps but close enough by driving. The host and hostess were extremely accommodating and pleasant and served great breakfast.
