Guesthouse Lost River awarded 2015 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for the FOURTH consecutive year!

 

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account the quality, quantity and recency of reviews and opinions submitted by travelers on TripAdvisor over a 12-month period as well as business’s tenure and ranking on the Popularity Index on the site.  

 

 “Winning the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a true source of pride for the entire team at Guesthouse Lost River and we'd like to thank all of our guests who took the time to share their experience!” said Gary Robinson, Owner.  “There is no greater seal of approval than being recognized by one’s customers. With the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence based on customer reviews, the accolade is a remarkable vote of confidence to our business and our continued commitment to excellence.”

The Bon Appetit! Bon Appalachia! campaign is a project of the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), a regional economic development agency whose mission is to be a strategic partner and advocate for sustainable community and economic development in Appalachia.  

 

ARC and its Tourism Council, which includes representatives from the 13 states within the Appalachian Region, developed the Bon Appetit! Bon Appalachia! initiative to highlight the region’s most distinctive local food destinations.

 

The locations identified on the interactive website map and the accompanying paper map, were selected through an online nomination process that took place in spring 2013. The interactive website includes approximately 650 destinations, while the paper map highlights 283 of these locations.  Guesthouse Kitchen & Bar have been featured as one of 21 locations in the state of WV and 1 of only 5 restaurants in the entire state.

Guesthouse Lost River awarded 2014 Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for the THIRD consecutive year!

 

"TripAdvisor is pleased to honor exceptional hospitality businesses for consistent excellence," said Marc Charron, president of TripAdvisor for Business. "The Certificate of Excellence award gives top performing establishments around the world the recognition they deserve, based on feedback from those who matter most – their customers. From Australia to Zimbabwe, we want to applaud exceptional hospitality businesses for offering TripAdvisor travelers a great customer experience."

When selecting Certificate of Excellence winners, TripAdvisor uses a proprietary algorithm to determine the honorees that takes into account reviews ratings. Businesses must maintain an overall TripAdvisor bubble rating of at least four out of five. Volume and recency of reviews, as well as a business' tenure and popularity ranking are also factored into the algorithm.

Guesthouse Lost River featured as Fall Travel story in the New York Times!

 

In the Backwoods of Lost River, A Gay Retreat

 

"Reached by following a winding forest road off State Road 259 and turning left at the sign for Deer Spring Taxidermy, the Guesthouse has the feel of an upscale hunter’s lodge with its stone hearths, pine walls, burgundy leather couches and the occasional antler chandelier. At the bar, mostly same-sex couples sip beer and cocktails with names like Lost River Kiss and Sex in the Mountains. The Guesthouse has a 24-hour gym and poolside bar"
