“Good deal! Itinerary anyone?”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Our visit was fun. We're very ourdoor-oriented people so spending the day hiking Lost Creek State Park was great for us. This is not the retreat for just anyone. Unless you're content to keep youselves occupied or to do nothing (absoluety nothing, which is great for some) this may be too boring for you.

Here are the pluses:

Larry let us use our lunch vouchers to pack a picnic for our summit climb.
The happy-hour spread was fun and tasty.

GM Larry was a gem himself, providing lots of info and advice about the area.

Here are the minuses:

Of all of the B&Bs we've stayed in (we're not experts by any stretch), this was the least informative. No resident was on-site overnight, yet there was no info about whom to contact if you needed anything or if there was an emergency. Also, there was no info about whether guests could use the fridge or dishes.

Biggest minus of all: Hair! I am super grossed out by other-people's hair. It was on our bath mat and bath towels. The long-dark hairs were neither mine nor my husband's.

Minor minus - my blueberry muffin, which was wrapped in plastic, had mold on the top. After I ate half of it and realized why it was green, I couldn't eat anything else. Even on our second morning we joked about not being able to have anything but the coffee.

Sorry we disappointed you. I am the owner and was on site each night. If you were not told, the customary language upon arrival is "make yourself at home". The kitchen is there for our guests minus the stove. With regards to the muffin, we'll have to do a better job at policing that. It obviously was not rotated properly in the basket and for that I will speak to my staff about as well as making sure the last guests do not leave anything behind. Frankly this is only the second negative review we have had so we must have just missed the mark with your visit all the way around. Please visit us again. Sorry, can't do anything about you being bored. Our guests customarily find plenty to do.

My boyfriend and I visited the Lost River B & B this past weekend, and we had a fantastic time. Our room was clean and the bed was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The owner, Tim, was lovely and made sure that we had everything we needed for a fabulous weekend. The continental breakfast was great and the coffee (something I am pretty picky about) was quite good! The B & B is very close to Lost River State park and the views in the valley are great. We also ate at the Lost River Bar and Grill and met a host of fun and lively locals and weekenders. Larry, the manager, was great and we felt like we were staying with old friends from day 1. In fact, one night, Tim even kept the bar open just for us so my boyfriend and I could unwind as long as we wanted. We will absolutely be back and I would highly recommend this place for a great weekend getaway!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 4. The bed was excellent!

LOVED THIS PLACE! We needed a weekend away and found the perfect place. Great people who own it. Quiet and comfy rooms. Complimentary wine in your room when you check in. Wine and cheese on Saturdays to get the people staying there get together and talk and continental breakfast every morning. And food at the restaurant - was phenomenal! We will definitely be going back. Thank you social living for showing us this place with the coupon.

My fiancee and I got the Living Social weekend deal like the prior reviewer and stayed in the bed-and-breakfast house. The place is lovely. The food was absolutely delicious and came in large portions. As noted, free wi-fi, although the signal isn't very strong once you leave the lounge. Tim, the proprietor, personally asked after our needs and ran missing supplies up to us. Oh, and the wine provided was from a local vineyard and was delicious!

My only quibbles would be that a) the only TV in the B&B is downstairs, b) the food would be mildly expensive if not covered in the voucher -- the prices are that of a good restaurant and the vouchers of $30 for lunch and $45 for dinner were enough for the two of us to have a hearty, personalized meal, with leftovers for the next day, and c) the B&B is as drafty as a converted farmhouse (which it is) so although the thermostat was set to the high 70's, we still had to make ample use of the provided covers.

That said, we had a wonderful time and plan to revisit in another few years. Bit of advice, if you're coming in in the evening, get the directions from Tim. GPS devices and Google Maps will try to route you through the mountains, a technically shorter path, but one involving narrow winding roads and hairpin curves. Save those roads for the next day, when you can drive down them in daylight and enjoy the beautiful scenery.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are nicely decorated. The top floor room has a second exit onto a deck, but also ge...

We found this place through living social and it exceeded expectations. The bed and breakfast was absolutely beautiful, very clean, and had a wonderful staff. The Bar and Grill had great food and the staff was very helpful and friendly with directions and recommendations about what to do during the day. We will definitely be making a trip back!
