May 13, 2010: The news is still full of the “bad economy”. Let us help you to have a wonderful vacation, enjoying lots of things, while spending little. Gillum House Bed & Breakfast has turn-by-turn routings to many things (can be customized – no longer turn-by-turn but will get you to your particular interests) to see and do that will not break the budget. Come explore West Virginia – a land of scenery, history, culture, and activity.
Covered bridges – West Virginia has 17 remaining covered bridges and 9 of them are within 60 miles or less of the Gillum House. Shinnston’s circa 1778-log house is a free-will donation. If visiting Shinnston on a weekend the museum is open (free) and the drive-in shows a double feature (current movies) for $6 per adult. There are antique shops, West Virginia crafts, the State Wildlife Center, many rail-trails, historic sites, fishing, museums….. The rail-trails are free. The bridges are free. Visit any of our several State Parks in the area. They are also free.
Make Gillum House your base with the hearty breakfasts (we have been told lunch was not necessary), and Kathleen can route you to places of interest that cost little or nothing.
