About Jessie Day
We have been in the hospitality business for over 30 years. We enjoy inviting guests to share the beauty of our home and the historic town of Hinton.
Jessie Day purchased this House in 1980
Why Jessie Day chose Hinton
As a young boy, my husband delivered newspapers and carried groceries to the elderly owner who once lived in this beautiful home. She rarely let anyone step inside but always made an exception for him. For almost a century the home was admired by all who lived in Hinton. Upon her death, the elderly owner requested that my husband be given an opportunity to purchase the home. Never in his wildest dreams did he ever think he would one day become the owner of this beautiful home.
What makes this House unique
This home is full of stories and reminders of days gone by. A complete history of the century old home has been written. A movie scene was once filmed inside the home, and it has hosted many community events and weddings.The home has been featured in newspaper articles and included in a homes tour.

The city of Hinton was established in 1873, near the confluence of the New, Greenbrier & Bluestone rivers, Hinton became the county seat of Summers County and an important railroad center on the Chesapeake & Ohio in the late 1800's. While much of the railroad operation has faded away, a great deal of the residential and commercial architecture built from 1895 to 1929 remains along with the spectacular scenery of the surrounding area.
Along with the winding rivers found in Hinton (the New, Greenbrier, and Bluestone)The National Park service has designated a 52-mile stretch of creating the New River Gorge National River and scenic parkway. Sandstone Falls is a popular tourist destination along this route where a Lassie movie was filmed in the 1990s starring Helen Slater and Jon Tenney. There is a boardwalk that takes visitors out to the falls for breathtaking photo opportunities. Hinton is full of mountains lakes rivers and beautiful scenery. Amtrak Rail Service serves the small community of 2000 residents with trains to major destinations on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Nearby there are two state parks located in the countryside which offer golf, horseback riding, great restaurants, indoor/outdoor pools, and many beautiful hiking trails. There is a scenic aerial tram that takes visitors deep into the Bluestone Gorge for a wonderful dining experience. Nearby there is an exhibition coal mine, caves and caverns for exploring, the Hatfields and McCoy‘s ATV trail, Bluestone Lake and marina, the magnificent Bluestone Dam, Bluestone Wildlife Hunting and Fishing area, and a whitewater rafting outfitter. The Greenbrier River is great for canoeing and kayaking, the legendary John Henry tunnel (site of the man versus machine victory) is found nearby along with Historical Lewisburg, and the world famous Greenbrier Resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. The Greenbrier is owned by West Virginia’s Governor, Jim Justice, and is like revisiting the homes and setting of Gone With the Wind. There is a casino and fabulous world class restaurants, a secret bunker that was declassified in the 90. The bunker’s primary purpose was to protect members of Congress in the case of an attack on our homeland. The bunker is now open for tours and is magnificent!
