Mike's Pub

[photograph, graphic link] Mike's PubThe BrazenHead's pub is directly connected to the dining room, and in fact, we sometimes seat dining guests there. There are five tables seating four guests, and eight stools at the bar, to accommodate a total of 28.

Beers on tap include Guinness Stout, Bass Ale, and Killians Irish Red, as well as the Budweiser line of American beers, and other favorite imports.

The Porches

When he built the inn, Will Fanning planned plenty of space for relaxation. The inn is surrounded by 4,000 square feet of covered porches and decks, furnished with swings, deep Adirondack chairs, and a hammock.




BrazenHead Bears ™

Long before West Virginia’s Potomac Highlands were famous for snow skiing, mountain biking, and scenic touring, they were renowned among hunters for wily brown bears. The BrazenHead offers chain sawed, hand-finished bears ranging in personality and size that you would welcome on your porch, created by the Fannings from their own woodpile.
