Upcoming Events & Activities

April 1, 2020 by Ed Fischer

What a difference two weeks makes - the world is a much different place today. Our hearts go out to all affected by COVID-19 and we pray that all of our guests are safe and well.

We are planning to continue to be open to serve you as we know you may desire an escape to the mountains to enjoy the fresh air, peace, and solitude.

The health and safety of our guests is our number one priority. Since purchasing the Inn almost 14 years ago we have set a very high standard of cleanliness. In light of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have implemented additional enhancements to our housekeeping guidelines which includes sanitizing all interior and exterior doorknobs, light switches, and handrails throughout each day. We also have hand sanitizer available when you check in. Our primary goal is to provide a clean and sanitary environment where you can retreat with total confidence that your needs will be met. We are also offering optional in room breakfast delivery to promote social distancing for our guests.

While things continue to change almost daily, we are being very flexible if you need to postpone your visit. We will refund your deposit or apply to a future visit. Just let us know 24 hours before arrival. For new reservations for stays through May 15, we are not charging a deposit. If you come and stay with us for two nights in April through May 20, we will offer you a complimentary bottle of wine on arrival or chocolate covered strawberries.

We still have availability for Labor Day weekend, when we will feature a Labor Day feast with Ed's "Famous on 5 Continents" Baby Back Ribs, Jalapeno Brats and Carol's Special BBQ Chicken. We will serve hand-cut fries, watermelon and local fresh sweet corn. For dessert, we have Lemon Crunch Pie with the optional but highly recommended French Vanilla Ice Cream.

We are looking forward to the upcoming 49th Annual Treasure Mountain Festival Sept. 14 – 17. From antique cars and children's games to pumpkin and muzzleloader contests, there will be tons of fun for the whole family.

We also invite you to a very special weekend when author Paul Stutzmanvisits us September 22 – 23. Paul will lead guided hikes along the North Fork Mountain trail that Saturday. After enjoying breakfast and dinner, you will be treated to pictures and stories about his adventures hiking the Appalachian trail and biking across America.

The infamous Road Kill Cook-Off that Ed has competed in and judged will be held the last Saturday in September. This annual event in Marlinton features road kill eligible animals such as iguana, venison, bear, frogs and many others which you can sample and help pick for the "crowd favorite" award. Street vendors will be selling everything from baked goods and maple syrup to quilts. There is free music and entertainment so bring your lawn chair, kick back and relax.

The Burlington Apple Festival also is a popular venue, held the first weekend in October and sponsored by the Methodist Children's Home. You'll enjoy free entertainment and many food vendors selling everything from apple cider to BBQ and Country Ham sandwiches. Funnel cakes and other sweet treats are always a big temptation!
