Hubby and I are considering spending the Thanksgiving weekend poking around Beverly, Bridgeport area. Do any of you have suggestions for a place to stay? We prefer a B&B, but will stay where ever. We do travel with a well behaved 3 lbs dog. We think we want to retire in this area.

Thanks for any suggestions

Tygart Lake State Park cabins??? I don't know if they close during that time or not. It is very easy to get out to Jerry Dove Drive which accesses I-79 around Bridgeport.

There should be B&Bs in Beverly or Elkins as it is a laid-back community.

There are several B&Bs in Elkins, I'm not sure about where the ones in Beverly are. There is a Beautiful B&B near the entrance to D&E by the city park.

Tygart Lake State Park has both a lodge and cabins. I'm sure pets aren't allowed in the lodge, but they might be in the cabins, at least some of the cabins.

I've been in the Bridgeport area about 2 years now and come to think of it I can't think of any B&B's around off the top of my head... I'll ask around.

3run, what made you select Bridgeport? Where did you move from? Tell me some places to see and eat, neighborhoods to look at.

I moved from the Eastern Panhandle, South Berkeley County. Near Winchester and Martinsburg.

I used to live in a more rural clime, but relocated due to a job change. I work in Clarksburg but live in Bridgeport (a lot of folks do that). Bridgeport is a very condensed small town. A lot of well kept older housing stock and some new construction going on as well. Lot's of things going on. United Hospital Center is moving from Clarksburg to Bridgeport, Charles Pointe development is moving along.. It's not a bad place to be in North Central.

Bridgeport has reportedly good schools compared to surrounding areas. When we moved in we were first told there was a waiting list for our kids to get in! And we live less than a mile from the schools! Well- that didn't happen, lol- they got in right away... The schools are okay. My kids were a little farther advanced than their peers when we got here, but they are in gifted now so it's leveled out.

Housing prices are fairly stable in Bridgeport and for the most part they are in demand. Our house, although 40 years old, is really well built but just needs some updating. But by and large much better built than say a Dan Ryan or S&A home.
Shopping is close. Actually everything is close. Quick access to the interstate, shopping, parks, Clarksburg.. So yeah- in town kinda sucks but the trade off is a stable and well kept real estate location, good schools etc..

If I had my druthers I would live in the country, BUT I have to be concerned with mobility. Since I'm not in my dream spot I need a location that I can sell relatively easily and without fear of downward pressure. Bridgeport has that. If I choose to stay here in North Central WV (or WV for that matter), then I will seek my 40 acres in paradise with my mule. But until then, I will stay put in Bridgeport because of... location, location, location...

There are some fantastic places to eat around here. STOP BY THE WONDERBAR for the best damned filet mignon on Earth! There's Oliverio's, Julio's, 4th Street, ton's of good mom and pops like the FOP Lodge.. But if you want a steak, and I mean a good one- you've gotta fork out the dough for the Wonderbar.

Let me know if I can be of any further help.
