With its lush forests perfect for hiking, scenic views to capture memories and waterways stocked with trout, bass and catfish, Webster County has become quite an attraction for tourists. Yep – Webster County’s natural beauty is surely becoming appreciated by folks from all over (the locals have known for a long time what folks were missing).
But whether you’ve already traveled to Webster County a few times or just currently hearing the buzz, you’re going to need a place to stay while you’re here. If you’re not up for camping or just want to experience the county in a more hospitable way, the Tuttle Farm has all lodging necessities plus a little more.
We sat down with Sue Tuttle, one of the owners of the farm, to discuss all things Webster County and what she hopes guests get from staying on the farm.
Q: Why do you love Webster County?
A: My mom was actually from Webster County, and so her family owned the property that Tuttle Farm sits on and it had been in the family for 100 years. We just love to go there and it has become our family gathering place, so it just holds a ton of sentimental moments for me. The county is full of such beauty and peacefulness and offers a special kind of beauty that most probably haven’t experienced.
A lot of people take it for granted — the clear night sky, fresh air, calmness — it truly has a lot to offer. The county is also centrally located to so many great West Virginia spots — New River Gorge, Dolly Sods, Cranberry Glades and so accessible for day trips. It has also become a middle place for families not only in the county, but also the mid-Atlantic.
Q: What kind of experience do you want to provide for guests at Tuttle Farm?
A: I want our guests to feel comfortable and relaxed and leave feeling renewed. I also hope they enjoy the beauty of the farm and within each other.
We have a lighted, covered pavilion for folks who want to sit and enjoy the outdoors even if it’s rainy. We also have a firepit and quite a bit of acreage that makes for great hiking trails.
Q: What makes Tuttle Farm unique from other lodging options?
A: The farmhouse is a multi-generational, one-level ranch style home that is privately tucked away from the road. Guests have the chance to experience our state’s wildlife and activities, like berry picking and picking wildflowers scattered throughout the farm. It’s a great place for folks who want to enjoy the West Virginia air and mountains, but are not up for camping.
Q: What can guests expect when staying at Tuttle Farm?
A: Guests can expect a clean and comfortable space with several amenities and responsive service. The farm is a nice stopping point for motorcycle riders, folks passing through, first-time folks coming to the state and weekend family getaways. Tuttle Farm is a three bedroom, two bathroom ranch house that sleeps nine, and is dog-friendly.
