The Guesthouse is charming, friendly, and a great place to visit for dinner or a stay. The food is excellent, always fresh and well prepared. The staff are pleasant and service is great. Tables are spread out so you never feel like you are in close quarters. We frequent the Guesthouse often and look forward to additional dinners.

We had a fantastic dinner with fabulous staff! The food was excellent and the service was just as good. We sat outside and the ambiance was lovely. The music was a tad loud, but we enjoyed the music selection. We all 100% recommend this place!

The last two times the food has not really been up to your standards. The meat balls and wedge are fine. Maybe the influx of people has rushed the kitchen. Thought you should know. We neve complain, but there is noticeable difference.

We traveled to the Guest House off and on for more than 20 years, and the year we ate and stayed there five times in the same year, we knew it was time to buy property there.

When we first visited the B&B, there was no restaurant. I have to say, the food is getting better and better!

We loved our meal and the atmosphere. I had the pasta dish and it was an amazing combination of flavors. Sirachia cauliflower was also really well done. We will definitely be back in the future.

Could a restaurant in West Virginia snag a Michelin star? This one is a candidate. We loved the food, the ambience, everything about the Guest House. We stayed at the resort, as well, and can recommend a weekend there.

I have never had a bad meal at The Guesthouse. The food is always flavorful and there is enough change to the menu that you can try something new almost every time you visit. The atmosphere is lively but not loud and it is the perfect setting for a date or a meet up with friends.

The meals at the Guest House at Lost River are special. Great menu selection, excellent service and wonderful flavors. The Chief seems to add special flavors or sauces to make a great taste. Service is always excellent. The proprietors, Jesse and Gary, want to make it a good experience and are open to any concerns or suggestions.
