A month or so ago, I traveled to Lost River to check off a few restaurants on the 101 Most Unique Places to Dine in WV list. Unfortunately, The Inn at Lost River's General Store was closed for the season. I was devastated, but resolved to come back as soon as they were open.
Lost River is quite the trek from Morgantown, so I called a few times to confirm they would be open before making the drive. And, once I got there, I let out a huge sigh of relief to see the "open" sign hanging out front of the shop.
This beautiful shop features local products, wines, and other goods. Seriously, there are some great products here; I fell in love.
They also have their cafe! Some quick breakfast items like bagels or muffins are available, as well as sandwiches, salads, paninis and BBQ.
The BBQ is why they made the unique list, so that's what I went with - as well as the side of baked bbq lima beans and cole slaw.
I looked around the shop a bit more, before selecting a seat amongst the beautiful products to enjoy my meal. The BBQ is actually quite tasty and piled high on the bun with some extra sauce on the side. The BBQ lima beans, which I was super skeptical of, were crazy delicious. Did not taste like lima beans or baked beans (neither of which I like), but I liked these! The crisp chips and pickle were perfect complements.
If you have some time, check out this place. It's beautiful, supports local artisans and churns out some darn good food in the most pleasant setting. Just the way the line shined in on a cool day, showcasing these beautiful items up for purchase, while getting my fill of delicious food, made my day.
