Christmas at the Guest House

We have been staying at the Guest House over the Christmas holiday for several years and have enjoyed every minute of it! The house is beautiful and exceeds our expectations. We will continue to make memories there in years to come. Thank you for the hospitality and the wonderful accommodations!

Rooms and cleanliness are outstanding but unable to choose that rating. Value would be rated higher if more TV channels were available. The quiche provided is delicious! Onsite dining is not applicable but required to rate it. My wife and I stay here once or twice a year and it is fantastic!

Innkeeper Response

Our family of 4 stopped here for one night on our way to Virginia. We wish we could have stayed longer. This house is beautifully decorated and has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The beds are superb. The Inn is situated in town, a very convenient location. Simple check in, with Joanne very easy to contact if needed. We will be return customers if we're in the area again.

Great stay close to family

This is a very tastefully decorated home with all the amenities we have grown to expect when staying away from home. We loved how the Kenneth Suite was a little more private. We will definitely be back and will highly recommend to everyone.

First class stay. Happy we can stay in Hinton instead of Princeton when we visit family.

We were in town for RR Days. We come every year for the apple butter and to visit family in Ballengee, WV. We'll be back and plan to stay at The Guest House.

Fantastic resource in Hinton, WV

4.4 on October 29, 2014

A beautifully restored and cared for home done up in B&B style, the furnishings in the rooms and common areas are tasteful and comfortable, and Joanne and her team do an excellent job at making you feel at home. I wouldn't stay anywhere else!

Best Inn I've ever stayed at BY FAR!

4.8 on August 31, 2014

Once we arrived we contacted the hostess an she quickly met us an showed us in an toured the entire house. We were shown our room an all amenities available to us. Once the tour was over an any questions we had answered we were told to make our selves at home an were left to do as we please as if it were our home. The entire house was at the peak of perfection as far as cleanliness is concerned. Room was amazing and we had zero issues. I recommend The Guest House Inn to any an everybody who wants an amazing, clean, and calm place to stay on there next trip to Hinton WV. I will most defiantly be staying there in the future.

Idyllic small town, weathered but genuine, nestled in the Appalachia Mountains....great escape from NYC...Amtrak took my son and I Within 300 yards of the front door....honestly one of the proprietors was Waiting outside....truly a unique and wild setting. Gentle rafting down river was highlight, no guide needed just rent raft and they pick u up at designated pickup sites. Also horseback riding at pipestem state park, a stones throw away was magical. Management was spot on , in every way imaginable......exceeded my expectations. We will return, this small town has a great future ahead of it (Hinton WV) glad we could experience the first steps of its revival .....worth every penny. Garrison Scott New York
