When the early settlers homesteaded the West Virginia Country side it was customary to have a house that sat to the back of the home that stored the food the family grew during the summer. By the time winter came, folks would have big bins of potatoes, apples, turnips, and carrots overflowing by shelves full of canned vegetables, pickles, and apple butter. Up stairs of the Cellar House, the family would store dried herbs and beans and perhaps a few tobacco leaves. Some families would use the top room to smoke and store meats for the winter too. Our Cellar house is part of our Bed and Breakfast- Country Road House and Berries. Guests can enjoy their stay in the newly renovated, yet rustic upper room above the cellar, complete with a "very comfortable" full sized bed, indoor plumbing, and accommodations for two people. The space is clean and guests have access to towels and hand made soaps. Guests can also experience the sights and sounds of the country as they listen to the nearby stream, gaze at the stars, or hike up into the trail located at the back of the field and visit the pond. This property’s location also allows guests to discover local restaurants and explore the outdoors while kayaking, fishing, hiking along the Elk River (home of the famous Muskie Fish). Also a close drive (approx 90 min) away from New River Gorge Bridge and White Water Rafting. With this reservation guest receive a hot homemade breakfast-dietary restrictions are accommodated.

Also please keep in mind this is a century-old farm surrounded by many acres of land and woods. We love visitors. But not every single one of them is welcome! Try as we might, we cannot keep out every errant wasp, mouse, or stinkbug seeking food and shelter. Thx for understanding!
