Policies For Our Bed & Breakfast

Cancellation Policy

Cancellation is required at least 48 hours in advance. 

This is our livelihood. We have a life outside of this: family, God, community, etc but this is how we put food on the table! For this reason, this business (not a hobby) will charge a full reservation charge plus tax for any cancellation less than 48 hours prior to expected arrival or “No Show”. Reservations requiring use of stable stalls will also be charged stable fees.

Check-In/Out Times

Check-In:  from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. unless prior arrangements are made.
Check-Out:  By 11:00AM

A non-smoking facility (crystal ashtray on porch), the Gillum House Bed & Breakfast offers three (3) second floor guest rooms (one with private en suite bath), each with its own warmth and atmosphere. Luxury robes are found in each closet for the use of our guests.

Children are welcome but must bring at least one adult. Porta-crib and high chair available.

Due to allergies of the host, pets are not accepted.

We look forward to welcoming you to the best lodging in Shinnston, WV!
