You may find yourself passing through West Virginia on your way home or a part of your overall journey, but a stay at A Nature’s Song is a destination of its own. As you enter the small town of Mannington, and wind your way down the forested lane nestled in a protected forested area, tension will ease and excitement will build for having come to an enchanted place. You will be greeted warmly by two friendly, kind and down-to-earth folk, Arthur and Joanna, who have a natural ability to make you feel at home right away. On our stay, after a long day, and a long trip back north from the Blue Ridge Parkway on my Harley, we were immediately invited to be a part of the Reeve family. It made me miss home and my own Mom & Dad, and sister and family.
We spent the night on the back porch with refreshments with great conversation, and walked the property, including the beautiful pond, and enjoyed the comfy rocking chairs on the big country porch. The house is custom built, and the structural detail and upgraded finishes and furnishing were truly beautiful and of good taste. Joanna’s house and the B&B is immaculately clean. There isn’t anyone reading this review that can possibly have a cleaner house. And Joanna has taken great care to make every detail special, down to the microfiber sheets, the decorative wastebasket linings, and the handmade soaps.
We stayed in the Lilac Room, and had a great’s night’s sleep in a comfy bed. There is a flat screen TV, a writing desk for you to set up you laptop with WIFI, and a large private bath for you to spend a quiet moment cleaning up for the night.
Breakfast was delightful and healthy and the coffee was ready when we came downstairs. We watched the hummingbirds and the blue birds while we ate. Honestly, I can’t wait to go back this Fall. A Nature’s Song is a great place to regain your strength, your wits, and refocus your energy back into whatever it is that you do. The cabin looked cool, a little out the way, and look private and cozy.
These are just good people. You may find that Mannington is a little out of the way, but adding 20-30 miles from a major highway to your trip will seem immaterial and completely worth it, after you have spent time at A Nature’s Song. Arthur and Joanna offer a place to stay, but they are also interested in sharing their blessings with others, and it will warm your heart.
