If you are looking for a place to visit that will help you relax, we've found it.

There's plenty of Swiss history at the Hutte Restaurant in Helvetia. You'll get a quiet environment with plenty of history.

Heidi Arnett was nine when she first got there.

"The beginning of the restaurant -- there's so many community people pitching in and helping," said Arnett. "So many people were cooking and building."

That was about 50 years ago when the restaurant opened.

"The original was a square building with a flat roof," Arnett said. "Part of it burned and luckily the part didn't burn that has the switchboard, the original switchboard."

They treat their ingredients and customers with tender love and care.

"Many of the recipes are originally from Helvetia," said Arnett. The sausage in particular is actually about nine different spices that came from the old timers."

Some of their customers come from all over the country to visit. They're around nothing but pure nature.

"We have no reception here, cell phone reception, so it's so nice for people to come and we try not to give them passwords so they can just chill and unhook from the world a little bit," Arnett said.

Arnett also runs the Beekeeper Inn, where you're also surrounded by peace and nature.

"The Beekeeper Inn we have no TV, no radio, no cell phones, we have no phones," she said. "You have to either grab a book or take a walk. It forces you to relax."

The Hutte Restaurant is about an hour from Elkins, 50 minutes from Buckhannon, and 90 minutes from Bridgeport.
