First Night’s Stop on A Road Trip to Remember

We were thrilled to be mentioned in the February 2016 edition of Eastern Home & Travel magazine, as part of this terrific article “A Road Trip Like No Other” by Reed Hellman. The feature takes readers on a memorable drive along Route 39, the Appalachian Waters Scenic Byway , recommending that adventurers make the Town of Goshen and the Hummingbird Inn their first night’s stop on the journey because of its “…classic B&B accommodations: welcoming, homey, clean and comfortable, with a sumptuous breakfast and the added attraction of active train tracks just beyond the front drive.”

Winding 136 miles from Lexington, Va., west over the Allegheny Mountains to Summersville, W.Va., the byway, also known as Route 39, mixes sumptuous accommodations, natural hot springs, mountain traditions and a wealth of cultural attractions with hundreds of thousands of acres of public wildlands.

“This is one of the most globally significant forest biomes in the world,” said Marek Smith, executive director of The Nature Conservancy’s Allegheny Highlands Program. “It’s only rivaled in diversity by similar forests in China.”

There are so many reasons to visit this part of the Shenandoah Valley, but certainly a remarkable road trip packed with unrivaled natural wonders, history and cultural opportunities along every mile of way is one great travel experience you won’t want to miss. Road trip anyone?

    Tim and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hummingbird Inn. The hospitality was excellent. Jeff, Sandy and Donna were very friendly and made us feel right at home. The dinner by the creek with the birds singing and the sounds of nature was very relaxing. Breakfast was delicious and the coffee and tea selection was more than we could ask for, not to mention the chocolates in our room. The bed was very comfortable and very clean. We enjoyed watching movies in the den with the wood beams showing and the original hard wood floors. We will definitely visit again. Jean
