We just spent the weekend at Hawk's Nest Lodge and had a wonderful experience. Our family is from that part of WV and we have since all scattered. I, along with 3 sisters, took our mother there for a "Girl's Weekend" and the lodge exceeded our expectations. Being in a state park, we did not expect to have a glamorous... More

This lodge has the most beautiful view from the balcony sliding glass doors. Our view was a stunning view of the New River gorge from about 800 feet above the river surface. We sat on our small balcony in the morning watching hawks and turkey vultures soaring over the gorge - absolutely peaceful and amazing location. The lodge room is... More

I have had the lodge on my bucket list since traveling to UVA in 1983. This is a lovely setting overlooking the New River gorge area. Very clean. Peaceful. Rooms are smallish, but a great place for enjoying all the area has to offer.

Lot's of folks seem to like this place, and it is very well maintained, but know that the building is concrete, and was constructed in 1970, and the decor strikes me as that of a 1970's Library or school. If you don't mind the "institutional-decor", this might be a decent place to stay as it is very close to very... More

We have stayed at Hawk's Nest on several occasions in the past year. The lodge is an older, but interesting, building. There are several lounge areas throughout the lodge and its location is its greatest asset. Some updating of the rooms is gradually taking place. Most of the rooms are somewhat small, but the space is adequate. During all of... More

Hawks Nest is a great lodge with some fantastic views. The rooms are clean and comfortable. the breakfast you get with the nights stay is o-k but were not to concern with that. We stayed here two nights and hope to make it back someday.

Have been going to Hawk's Nest every few years for the last 36 years. What you have to know up front is that this IS NOT a luxury hotel. It was built many years ago. It has been upgraded somewhat. This is a place you go to enjoy solitude, quiet and to get away from the bustling world. Use this... More

Most hotels with low rates also have low ratings. What attracted me to Hawks Nest was the low rate and high ratings. The high ratings were well worth it. The place was clean, the rooms not large, but up to date. Did I say it was clean? It sparkled. My room even had a flat screen TV. It wasn't busy... More

Ok, let's face it here. When you come to a place like the new river gorge, what you really want is someplace to sleep. Well you won't find that at the Hawks Nest Lodge! What you find is a great place to sleep. It's clean, staff is awesome and on it. The Park Rangers are as helpful as they come... More

This was the biggest surprise of the trip. Very walkable trails (at the main entrance and what I will call the historic entrance. Beautiful views. The tram was a ball to ride on also. We rode the tram down and walked the railtrail which I believe the city owns to a old coal mine. It was a lot of fun... More
