Step into a Robert Frost poem combined with a state-of-the-art sustainable farm that also happens to be a beautiful B&B. Marsha and her family were immensely welcoming and accommodating, and it was an absolute honor to get a glimpse into their inspiring lifestyle. Only a 20 min drive from White Grass Ski Area, we were able to traverse the snow-covered roads just fine with our Forerunner. The wifi worked well for us, our room was perfectly comfortable, and Marsha provided anything we needed (and generously made us breakfast). I cannot wait to stay with her and her family again at this one-of-a-kind destination! ~ Samantha
If you are looking for beautiful views, peace and quiet or a farm experience this is your place! My husband and i spent 3 days here and wished we had longer. It is clean, pretty and so accommodating. Marsha will see to it you have whatever you need or want. Her classes are wonderful. You'll have a lot of fun learning in her classes. If you want the farm experience there is no better place. Needless to say, my husband and I are going back! They are a 5 star rating in our book. ~ Ruth
One of the best places I've stayed and one of my favorite trips to add to the memories. This secluded farm was so peaceful - I was able to finally disconnect, enjoy the moments, and slept amazing. My husband and I loved walking the farm and seeing all of the animals, relaxing in the hammock by the river, and getting to know Marsha and her family. Marsha, her husband, and her awesome kids make you feel right at home and part of the family. One of our favorite parts was playing a board game one evening with Josie! Perfect location to make trips to Blackwater Falls, Spruce Knob & Seneca Rock, Canaan Valley, or exploring the cute little towns of Thomas and Davis. 10/10 recommend for anyone looking for a place to stay in the area - we will definitely be back! ~ Lindsay

This was an unexpected treat. I was able to get away and spend time in the nature, staying in a farm with friendly dogs , curious cats, all while being treated like family with home cooked healthy food and sharing stories ... Marsha, Kendall and the kids were delightful and warm.. And am grateful for their generous and gracious hospitality. Feel recharged. ~ Madhavi
Guest Review: We had an awesome time staying in the dome! Very cozy and the stove is just the right size to keep the space warm in the winter! Just make sure you keep it lit through the night. The farm was so much fun for the 3 of us. My dog especially loved meeting all the animals (from a safe distance). The family was so nice and checked to make sure we had everything we needed everytime we saw them. It really made the dome feel like home! The weather turned sour during our stay so we weren't able to do the hiking we intended in the many state parks in the area... but I brought some board games and it was the perfect cozy place for a game night after wandering the farm property. There is zero cell service at the site. But personally we found this romantic as we were able to completely focus on us. I HIGHLY recommend this dome 😊
I have traveled here three times for different get-aways. This BnB is my go to for rest and relaxation. Marsha is a gracious host and her family is delightful. The house and property is gorgeous and, best of all, it is a working farm. There is always plenty to going on. From milking cows to Falconer demonstration, this place has something for everyone! ~ Tracy
It’s my favorite B&B ever. Gorgeous location—secluded and quiet, perfect for a long weekend writing retreat. I felt like I was Anne of Green Gables. Marsha and her family are friendly and hospitable. Food is delicious (breakfast and dinner!) and filling. If you’re used to fast internet and solid cell network, be prepared. I didn’t have any network availability and could manage logging on to wifi for a limited search here and there—perfect for a getaway and disconnect to write! I just planned ahead and downloaded/printed my writing materials ahead of time. The desk and chair was the *perfect* workspace. Thank you for a fantastic stay. I can’t wait to come back with spouse and kiddo to enjoy the farm and river beach more. ~ Rachel
The home is absolutely charming. Built in 1905, it has a victorian, farmhouse vibe. It is warm, quaint, and comfortable. The host family is wonderful. We played board games with them and some of the other guests the first night. The next morning we woke to a wonderful breakfast and then was treated to a tour of the grounds. They have chickens, pigs, horses, mules, dogs, and cats. The river that runs alongside the estate is absolutely beautiful. There are also some remnants from the past as the estate used to be a logging town with over 800 residents and 300 structures. Later that afternoon, we went on a squirrel hunting excursion with one of the best Falconers in the state and his Red-Tailed Halk. It was amazing! ~ Curtis
Our name is Laurel River Club Bed & Breakfast, but our signs all use the abbreviated version LRCB&B with a picture of the house.
Our mailing address is Bowden, WV but our physical location is Jenningston, WV. (It's a country thing!) Use Google Maps and type in LRCB&B for the best directions. You will lose cell service along the way.
We actually claim both Tucker County and Randolph County because we farm property in both.
Your next adventure awaits!
If you want DIRECTIONS, look us up on Google Maps. Type in LRCB&B, we are pinned there. We are just outside of Canaan Valley, WV.
