          Your family was a delight to host. It was joy to meet all of you, to have our lives touched by your family, and to show off Shinnston to you. Our only regret is that the visit was shortened by circumstances beyond your control. We...More

          Kathleen and John are the quintessential hosts. They are down-to-earth and very genuine. We had a most wonderful time staying at this superb B&B. The room was very spacious and the bed was total comfort. Kathleen thinks of everything from chocolates, to fresh fruit to...More

          I stumbled across this B&B in my Garmin when planning my trip back to Ohio. Right from the start, Kathleen and John were so accommodating! Traveling on a motorcycle, there's always somewhat of an uncertainty on how you will be received. But from the time...More

          We truly enjoyed your visit. Since John and I both rode (in different eras), we know the kind of roads motorcyclists want and where they are - and West Virginia is full of those roads. (We have turn-by-turn routes to make it easier.) He so...More
