The Morris Harvey House B&B is very possibly the most attractive building in Fayetteville. The house’s exterior, including the beautiful front porch, and the lovely grounds offer a warm welcome to guests. The rooms on the first and second floors are bright and cozy. Owner/host Bernie is extremely affable and makes scrumptious and varied breakfasts, which can be enjoyed in the dining room or on the porch. A Keurig and small ice machine are available at all times, and a small fridge is provided for guest use.

Fayetteville itself, population under 3000, has exceptionally good restaurants, most within walking distance. The Secret Sandwich Society, Cathedral Cafe, Pies and Pints, and The Station all deserve mentions. The Station’s pan-seared local trout is a real treat.

Many folks who pass through the B&B have come to the area because of the nearby popular New River Gorge area and its famous bridge. White water rafting, gorge climbing, and walking on the catwalk under the 1000’ foot high bridge are attractive to many. We tend toward tamer activities and lived vicariously through the tales of the more adventuresome staying at the B&B. We did enjoy the drive down to the base of the gorge, despite some harrowing switchbacks on narrow sections of the road, and also Captain Rick’s gentle jet boat ride from Hawks Nest Lake to the bridge.

We also found a visit to Tamarack in Beckley, about 20 miles south, to be very worthwhile for those interested in West Virginia-made crafts and food.

A couple of alerts about the B&B. We stayed in The Loft, which takes up the entire third floor of the house. It features two spacious bedrooms, a large bathroom, and a small sitting area. Here you find many sloped ceilings, so be careful. Those over 6’2” are advised on the website to steer clear; I am 5’ and had to duck here and there. The bathtub can be quite slippery, and there is nothing solid to hold on to. Again, care is needed. In all fairness, I should say that we spent several nights at the B&B, and it’s likely we wouldn’t have noticed these little inconveniences quite as much if we’d stayed just one or two nights.

I do recommend that the B&B amenities be listed on the website. You can find them on TripAdvisor, but not elsewhere. Guests like to know if there are personal products, hair dryer, TV, wifi, etc.

Overall a very fine stay in a good location.

What a wonderful first experience for a B&B. Bernie was the most accommodating host with AMAZING breakfasts. His dog Sasha sealed the deal! We can’t wait to come back. Fayetteville is the most charming mountain town full of adventure. Get out and explore!!!!

Bernie was recovering from a knee replacement but still managed to have me greeted warmly by his sister who was helping out with the inn. The room was comfortable and the house was well kept and interesting. I was the only guest and got to enjoy each common room area in solitude. Great spot and friendly innkeepers.

We stayed here 3 nights while visiting the area with our family. We were made to feel very welcome, and enjoyed the excellent breakfasts. The house is beautiful, and completely restored with all modern conveniences. The location is excellent for getting to the local sites, and is in walking distance of the best local restaurants. We plan to return again.
