Tunnel Mountain Bed and Breakfast is a charming 3-story fieldstone home nestled on the side of Tunnel Mountain (part of Cheat Mountain), on five private wooded acres surrounded by scenic peaks, lush forests and sparkling rivers. Named for the 1890 railroad tunnel which passes under the hillside, this Bed & Breakfast is a romantic country retreat.

The interior is finished in pine and rare wormy chestnut woodwork. Tastefully decorated throughout with antiques, collectibles and crafts, it extends a warm and friendly atmosphere where guest can feel at home. Separate owner's quarters insure that guests can relax undisturbed by the living room fireplace, on the porch or patio, or take a leisurely walk on the property.

The Inn's three romantic guest rooms, each with its own private bath, offer sensational views, lovely antiques, and handmade comforters. You can choose the pre-Civil War canopy-bed room, the snug antique rope-bed room, or the cozy third floor, wormy, chestnut paneled, queen size bedroom.

Your full Breakfast is served at the Inn's one-of-a-kind antique dining room table in a setting punctuated with knickknacks and antiques. A continental breakfast is served during the five-week Augusta Heritage Festival in July, August. Freshly ground coffee or tea is always available. The Inn will prepare breakfast for guests with special dietary requirements. Simply tell the host about your needs when your reservations are made.

Just down the road from Tunnel Mountain B & B is the 998,000-acre Monongahela National Forest beholding wonderful hiking and cross-country skiing opportunities. The Cheat River is great for fishing or canoeing, Otter Creek Wilderness Area for great hiking trails, and Bickle Knob for a panoramic view high atop its 55-foot observation tower, all at your doorstep.

Close by are Blackwater Falls and Canaan Valley State Parks, Dolly Sods, Seneca Rocks, and Spruce Knob (highest point in West Virginia). Many more places are also available for hiking or mountain biking, cross-country and down-hill skiing, horseback riding, fishing, hunting, canoeing, rafting, swimming, golfing, tennis, spelunking and antiquing. Major festival events occur throughout the year. Snowshoe and Silver Creek Ski areas are but an hour away as is the popular Cass Scenic Railroad.

Visit our wildflowers in the spring, go adventuring in the summer, come for the leaves in the fall, ski in the winter, and enjoy all the beauty and hospitality of West Virginia!
