Clifton Forge is a sleepy mountain town tha is coming alive again after many years. The inn is a perfect addage to this re-awakening. Nature abounds in the surrounding mountains. It's a 35 minute ride over the Clifton Forge Mountain to go to the Jefferson Pools near the Homestead for an amazing minreal soak. The Dauthat State Park is one of the most beautiful, scenic place n the USA. It is an amazing combination of beach, lake, and forest with boating and swimming, hiking, etc. It is a great acitivity adjunct to the staythat we had.
The Inn itself is a beautifully arrayed and decorated small Bed and Breakfast. It is actually somewhere between a B & B and a very nice hostel. You serve yourself a continental breakfast and snacks as you are free to use the generously stocked kitchen. There is a lovely famiy-style decorum of antiques from americana to asian--and everything, including the renovation is nothing short of top class. They really outdo themeslves during your stay and are helpful in every way imaginable.
Quiet--Country--Helpful--Heartfelt--True "InnKeepers!!" Two nights felt like four!!
Very reasonably priced for the generous offerings...
