What is your route through WV?
We are probably taking 79 to77 to 83 (I think that's right.) I think that West Virginia would be a halfway point but not so sure- thanks for the advice
Probably I 81. Most travelers take Rt 19 (just below Sutton) from I 79 to Beckley where they pick up I 77. Cuts off 50+ miles by not going to Charleston and down.
Might research for B-B's in Morgantown, Fairmont, Clarksburg, Weston, Summersville ro Beckley.
Maybe check out Stonewall Jackson Resort in Roanoke. Few miles south of Weston. Just off of I 79.
Great- that's just what I was looking for. Thanks so much!
Stonewall is a beautiful resort! I believe the evening boatride is included in your room price...although by Nov most of the pretty leaves will probably be gone.
There are a couple B&B's in Buckhannon -- that will take you about 10 miles off I-79.

I've driven by Sir Charles and it looks very nice. Haven't seen the others.
This one is a little further out.
Buckhannon is a nice little town, sorta old fashioned- think you would enjoy walking in town. Fav restaurant in Bkn is CJ Maggies on Main Street.
Stonewall is nice.
There are tons of hotels in Beckley which sit right along I-77/I-64.
Thank you Lvnsn- I have been reading your other advice on some other forums. Very helpful. During the Rt 19 section of our trip, we want to stop at a B&B but aren't sure which of these towns are our style- we are looking for great outdoor scenery, historic small towns, and that "folksy" feel. Any advice as to which town would be best? We only have a day and a half. Thanks again!
“we are looking for great outdoor scenery, historic small towns, and that "folksy" feel.”
Agree with Beachlady - think Fayetteville would most closely fit the bill. Don't know of any other towns along that stretch that would come close. Fayetteville will give you good outdoor scenery and probably a folksy feel. Not so sure about the historic. Just not so sure what the B&B's or hotels in Fayetteville are like. Hope someone can answer that.
Please keep in mind, Nov. 1 you are not going to be seeing WV at it’s prettiest – I think that month is about the ugliest. Peak leaf time is October in most of the state so leaves are off the trees/things are looking pretty dead and it’s usually too early for snow. Please don't be disappointed by WV, but that is just the time of year Mother Nature takes a break from being beautiful.
For some neat history, I'd suggest the Coal Mine Exhibit in Beckley but not sure if it is open then.

thanks again- I am not going to be dissapointed- we are traveling on our honeymoon and we love the outdoors any time of year- after all we are from Buffalo!
