This unique family operated lodging allows guests to “Step Back in Time to the early 1800s” in the two-story hand-hewn log house built by the owners from the trees on their rural wooded property. Located off the beaten path, this guest house is a natural habitat for birds, wildlife, trees and flora with opportunities to hike or bike on the adjacent North Bend Rail Trail. Guests enjoy a hearty country breakfast delivered to their door each morning of their visit.
This lodging structure has the distinctive architectural features of the pioneer era, but with modern conveniences. Local historic sites and museums are only a short distance away including Blennerhassett Island Historical State Park and Henderson Hall Plantation, both on the Ohio River. Other local sites include an 1810 stage coach inn museum, Berdines – the oldest Five and Dime in the US, antique shops and artisans. There are outdoor experiences at the nearby lake of North Bend State Park including canoeing and kayak rentals in season. This unique guesthouse B&B has been featured in state and national media publications and even on a national TV program as a cultural link to the early heritage of this area.

Locally or Family Owned Notes
Log House Homestead is the result of a family dream to build a log house representative of pioneer times in our mountain state of West Virginia. Construction began as the owner cut trees and hewed logs over a 5 year time period. Then the family, with the aid of a group of skilled craftsmen, constructed the log house using traditional methods and materials. Since 2001 this family owned and operated B & B guest house has hosted visitors from 39 states and 11 other countries.
Pet Friendly Notes
Because of guest allergy issues, this log house is a pet free facility.
