The Arnott House
Ranked #1 of 2 Spencer B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Step into the past and your new temporary home in no-wheres-ville West Virginia.

Dilya will be there to greet you. She warms up quickly to her guests and is super lovely and accommodating, with a cute Russian accent. Her and her husband are very welcoming to everyone (it was a concern since this is West Virginia, not to mention the more conservative Cunningham House up the hill).

Once the rubber factory across the street's 8 am shift change whistle goes off, it's chow time! You'll probably wake up prior to the whistle with the aroma of fresh coffee and bacon in the air. Dilya will make you whatever you like for breakfast; you name it: pancakes, crepes (plain or cream cheese stuffed), french toast, egg sandwich, or their fresh sausage patties (it seemed to be everyone's favorite). The Arnott House itself is located steps from downtown Spencer with the renowned Robey Theater and quaint little shopping area. If you're passing through town and looking for a place to stay, I'd strongly recommend it.

Room Tip: Rooms on the backside of the home (away from Route 14) are quieter due to the traffic and rubber fac...

Was in Spencer in October 2012 and the accommodations were very nice. Rooms were comfortable, warm and clean. Would recommend highly! Location was easy to get to and a front door key was provided with the room key. Owners live behind the B&B and are easily available. The owner's son was very agreeable and made our stay very pleasant. If you've never stayed at a B&B, I would recommend this one.

I came to do family research in WV The B&B happens to be the home of my 3xs great and 2xs grandparents which made the experience like coming home to visit family. Wonderfully renovated--keeping the old and making it new again. The owners were welcoming and made the stay all that more enjoyable. (took me awhile to do this, so the date is a year off, but wanted to say the good things)

Dilya and Greg have turned the historic Arnott House into a delightful, and affordable stay in the heart of Spencer. We have stayed there several times over the past two years and should have posted a review much sooner. Dilya cooks a fantastic breakfast to order every morning. Everything is prepared fresh, and her cooking skills are outstanding! The rooms are right out of the early 20th century, but have all been modernized for comfort. There are plenty of rooms on the ground floor but we preferred to stay in the more charming ones up the stairs in the main house. There is always plenty of off street parking, and all of the rooms are well insulated from normal street noise. Most importantly, Greg and Dilya make always make you feel like one of the family.

What a wonderful experience my wife and I had at the Arnott house last week! Greg and Dilya are superb hosts! The accomodations were comfortable and unpretentious; we really had the impression that we were at home. Best of all are the proprietors. Both are warm , friendly and lively. We had wonderful conversations with them both.Dilya cooks up delicious Russian specialties for breakfast, not exactly what we would have expected in Spencer We were in Spencer to visit family; as it turns out, we left having made new friends as well.

Room Tip: we chose a downstairs room to avoid stairs

This was my families' first B&B experience. Dilya was the best host a person could ask for. She was so flexible and willing to help us with anything that we needed. We were here for a funeral and had to change our plans a few times. She went right along with it. If fact here being so nice and flexible relieved some of the stress of attending a family funeral. The house was beautiful and very clean. When I return here to visit I will be staying here again. I would highly recommend it!! This is much nicer than the motel here in town and only slightly more expensive.
If you go to Spencer, WV and have to stay you better stay at the ARNOTT HOUSE!!
