We stayed only for one night during a roadtrip, wanting to see a little of the state park. The lodge itself was not super modern, but ok. We had a deluxe suite for our family of four, and had more than enough space. Surroundings were beautiful. We had been looking forward to take the tram down to the river -... More

The lodge accommodations are not the most modern, but are well maintained and clean. Free Wifi is available in the rooms, which is good because cell service is spotty. Location is good and close to many outdoor activities. The views from the room were beautiful. The tram was broken, so we didn't get to do that. Breakfast is as expected... More

Setting for lodge is great. Most rooms have a great view of the gorge. The rooms are somewhat old but clean and functional. We enjoyed the additional view of a friendly groundhog and a raccoon that came begging. The lodge staff were friendly and efficient. The down side of staying here is the really bad food and service in the... More

Immaculate scenery and clean facility. The lodge is very 60s but in a cool way. Narrow halls, low ceilings, brick and paneling hallways, and tons of nooks and crannies to sit in and chill. Excellent wifi everywhere. Restaurant is just ok and pricey.

I stayed at the end of May and the Tram was not running. This was my first visit but I see me going back. I have stayed at North Bend State Park and Pipestem and this seems to be a bit above both though Pipestem is close. The views are great from the dining room and a walk to Lover's... More

This was either my 3rd or 4th stay in about 20 years. The only reason really needed to come back is one of the most spectacular views in the United States. Early in the season so no tramway, but most of the trails were open. The room was convenient and very clean. Sleep was wonderful, TV and Internet excellent, refrigerator... More

Some of the best advice we have every received from a state welcome center was the one in West Virginia after we entered the state from Kentucky. Not having any familiarity with the interior of the state we were advised to spend the night at the lodge at Hawks Nest State Park and to travel there via the Midland Trail... More
