The Purple Fiddle has two options for lodging, the Purple Fiddle Hostel and the Fiddler’s Roost Guesthouse, both located on historic Front Street overlooking the North Fork of the Blackwater River.
Visit the quaint shops, hear live traditional music, and discover the growing arts community in Thomas, WV. Hike, bike or ski the rail trail from the Allegheny Highland trail-head directly across the road. There you can still see historic coke ovens, historic stone culverts, and spectacular waterfalls. Check in is at 4 pm, and checkout is at 12 noon. Please call us at (304) 463-4040 for details and pricing.
The Purple Fiddle Hostel, located on the 2nd and 3rd floors above the music venue, is our budget option, at $25 per head. Clean linens and towels are provided for our approximately 15 rent-able beds. The hostel, which has a full kitchen, 2 sitting rooms, 2 shared bathrooms, and pool table, is also where we house our live musical acts, and there is a good chance you may run into them after the show. This being said, quiet hours in the hostel begin at 3am, guests must be over the age of 18 (id required), and no pets are allowed (Raven the cat, who lives in the hostel, loves people but not other animals. Take note if you have severe cat allergies). Additionally, guests also have the opportunity of reserving a private room in the hostel for a night or weekend–please call for details and pricing. **Note, heat is centrally located on the second floor. It is advisable to bring extra blankets or a sleeping bag for sleeping rooms.
The Fiddler’s Roost Guesthouse, located next door to the Purple Fiddle venue, has 5 private bedrooms and 3 shared bathrooms (2 full baths and one 1/2 bath). Each guesthouse room has wireless internet access, plus an old school television set that plays VHS tapes only, of which we have a large selection. Guests are welcome to take advantage of the full kitchen, sitting rooms, and pool table located in the hostel next door. Children and well behaved animals welcome (house trained and bark free a MUST). 3 of our guesthouse rooms and one of our bathrooms are located on the2nd floor. Please ask staff if your personal needs require a 1st floor room. Sunday through Thursday rates start at $54 plus tax, weekends at $74 plus tax.
Also, right next door, on the other side of the Purple Fiddle, is the Cooper House Bed and Cocktail – an inn with en suite rooms ranging from $90 to $120. 304-851-4553; cooperhousewestvirginia@gmail.
