  • Great place to visit, have lunch and enjoy some very fine arts and crafts. We speed by on Mother's day, so there went any craftsmen working at the time, but they're work spoke well enough for them. Very high quality and beautiful. We had lunch from their grill and it was delicious in peaceful setting, just wish we would have had more time. Allow time to savor the food, then another couple of hours to enjoy the arts and crafts. In addition, catch the film paying in the theatre as they profile the artists, it was very enjoyable!
  • This is a very nice place but it is not much of a place for families to go, as there are many breakable items everywhere. The items they sell are very beautiful but very pricey, which is understandable as they are all homemade pieces of art. They had a good amount of variety on their menu for the food place inside also. I loved being able to look through the handmade items. I will definitely go back but will go when I do not have my children as I was constantly afraid that they may break something.
  • This place is super cute and not your typical roadside tourist trap. Its full of beautiful artwork! Definitely take the time to stop and stretch your legs, grab a nice cup of coffee and enjoy the local artists work! There is something for everyone here. They serve food as well, however I did not order any.
  • Very nice place to pull off at when traveling. So many nice things to look at and purchase. Clean bathrooms, friendly staff, and they have a cafe to get a bite to eat at. The prices are fair for the work that was put into making it, which people tend to forget. Many west Virginia artisans!
  • This is an inspiring place to see a wide range of arts and crafts from West Virginia artists. We loved exploring this beautiful place. They offer a nice place to eat as well. Don't miss this wonderful place on your journey through the area!
