The name "Country River Inn" brings visions of a quaint log cabin nestled among trees and perched next to a beautiful river; the reality is that the name is a bit misleading. The "inn" is really a re-purposed school just outside of downtown Fayetteville. But don't get me wrong, this place does not have the sterile locker-flanked halls of your awkward adolescence. Rather, it's a comfortable way station for relaxing on the deck by the pool or Jacuzzi before retiring to the most clean and comfortable "classroom" you've ever slept in.
The owners of this re-purposed school were friendly and flexible when we arrived after our estimated check-in time, and again when we spent a morning hiking and requested a late check-out (~2PM). Our well-equipped "classroom" was on the second floor (#4) and included a microwave and mini-fridge. The complimentary breakfast passed the grade with scrambled eggs, 2 sausage links, a hash brown patty, a biscuit, as well as orange juice and watermelon; definitely above and beyond continental style expectations. Overall, this will be the most comfortable and friendly school experience you've ever had.
If you're looking for a convenient launch pad for exploring Fayetteville and the New River Gorge, this is the only place I can recommend in the area!
