     The MacArthur Inn in scenic Narrows, VA was originally named "Narrows Hotel" in 1940.  In late 1941 a naming contest was held and President Roosevelt recommended to Senator W.C. Caudill to summons Major L.W. Chambers his choice to let this hotel be the first hotel in the USA to be named after General MacArthur. Several famous people have made the trip to hunt and fish in the picturesque mountains and streams.  John Wayne, Audie Murphy, Mickey Mantle and Michael Landon are among the most notable. Now after years of neglect and disrepair, the hotel has been completely restored.

     The Inn has 24 rooms for guests, a large lobby with sitting area, and dining room with seating for up to 40. The dining room is available for seminars, meetings and receptions from noon until 9:00 p.m. daily. One section consisting of 3 rooms is located separately to allow privacy from the rest of the Inn. This area may be rented for groups to attend meetings, reunions, receptions or sports excursions. Breakfast is served Tues.- Fri. 6:00-10:00 am. Dinner is served on Thursdays 5:30-8:30. Dinner is available on request otherwise. There is also a restaurant within walking distance.

     Perfect for groups, couples or individuals who enjoy the outdoors, both mild and extreme, in all four seasons or for those attending local events.
