Family-run, low-key, idyllic, friendly - AWESOME! Our family are "participators" - so we're in the golf tourneys on Tuesdays and Fridays, we run in the Capon mile on Tuesday afternoons, dance at the Starlight Dance, go on the hay rides, play in the tennis, ping pong, shuffleboard, and badminton tourneys, love Chicken on the Hill on Mondays and Steak on...

Come for the quiet, the golf, the scenery, the view. Stay for the dedicated and kind staff of this family-run business. Run with great pride by the nicest people around. Our church does a big retreat here near thed of the season, and they are really very expert at group events. But my husband and I also have gone just... More

My husband and I traveled to Capon for our 30th anniversary. We knew someone who married into the family that runs the place and they couldn't have been more accommodating. They took us on hikes, and spent personal time with us and with all their guests. The kitchen baked large cakes for people celebrating birthdays or anniversaries and everyone in... More

If you're into room service and lying in bed all day then this place is not for you. If you're into appreciating the beauty this world has to offer and spending time with your family, then this place is for you.

I've never before been so busy with our quilting group, Capon activities, food, snacks, meals at the golf course shelter, and yet came home so rested. It's a wonder. We enjoyed every minute, the staff, the food, the comfy bed, the Quiet, with no amenities for communication in the rooms, the near absolute quiet, it is something else again. Something... More

Aristotle must have been thinking of this resort when he said these words. The rooms aren't the fanciest and the food is not Michelin 4-star BUT, if you are looking for a truly great escape, come to this place. The rooms are comfortable. The food is well prepared, served family-style and seemingly endless in supply. All the staff from management... More

This place is definitely for retreats from civilization. It is surrounded by beautiful scenery. No tvs, wifi, or phones in room. Outdated rooms, furnishings and bathrooms. Food that's included was ok, but served on plastic plates that evoke recollections of military basic training or a nursing home. Staff were super friendly. Lots of bugs came into room from outdoors. Also... More

Nicholas, we enjoyed having your singing group here for the first time last weekend and appreciate your feedback. Many groups do come back year after year for our fantastic natural beauty and generous hospitality. They also seem to appreciate our simple but hearty meals served on the same old-fashioned melamine plates they remember from their childhood. We understand they can... More

We were just introduced to this place and spent a short weekend up there. It was a great experience for our kids and us. It rained for much of the trip but there was plenty to do and just unplugging from life was great. We hiked up to Eagle Rock which was beautiful, played a round on the pitch and... More

I have been coming to Capon for over 50 years and my sons, 35 and 36, have never missed one year. It is the only time and place I know my sons will always show up. Four generations of my family have been coming to Capon and it is a truly invaluable family retreat and tradition. Not to be missed... More
