Our family ventured down to WV for a mini fly fishing and outdoorsy spring vacation. We were there from a Sunday to Wednesday and had a wonderful time. It was some tough fishing (too early in season), but all three caught on the River and our boys caught numerous trout in the stocked stream and pond. We stayed in one... More

This was my 4th time staying at the cabins in the resort. I was there same time as the negative review below as well. I have always had a great visit at Elk Springs including this trip as well. They have an very nice place (make sure you try the trout). The wait staff are amazing and the bartender was... More

This was my 9th time staying here. I was there same time as review below. I honestly think it was an anomaly with the yelling incident. There were some ladies enjoying their time together as a Bachelorette getaway and at the same time there was a hand full of guys together for a Bachelor getaway. The 2 groups did not... More

Could have been a great experience. The room was nice and clean but at 10pm when the bar at the lodge closed it was a free for all yelling and screaming and when we tried to get management to help we were told he didn't want to get beat up. Never as long as i can remember having ask the... More

This was the second time my dad and I have been to Elk Springs. We stayed in the same NASCAR room. Very nice, 2 double beds, bathroom, washer & dryer, and tv this time. Room was clean and everything worked well. Staff excellent as always. No cell service so it is a nice get away.

Our 9 year old twins are not outdoorsy kids at all. So, In an effort to teach them a little about their native state's wonders , we ventured to Elk Springs while staying at our condo at Snowshoe. We did a half day beginning fly fishing experience in the resort's Spring Creek. Our guide, Patrick Skeen was exceptional. None of... More

It always amazes me how relatively unknown WV is to DC people. This is a beautiful quiet, resort with newly constructed cabins, and friendly fly fishing guides. It is pristine, has a positive vibe and is well managed. The grounds contain a series of beautiful man made trout stocked ponds for practice, and sits atop a beautiful natural spring fed... More

Truly a prize. Terrific people and great fishing. Had the opportunity to fish with head guide and meet several of his juniors; a joy to fish with and share a meal. Speaking of the food, was quite good; simple but excellent. Even had a chance to speak with the food & beverage manager; very nice guy. In fact, everyone was... More

This location is run by a wonderful family. I am going for my fourth time this year. Of course the fishing will depend upon the weather and the river level like anywhere else, along with the skill of the fisherman. The trout here have seen a lot of flies before, so they are wary most of the time. However, when... More

This past weekend I went to Snowshoe Mountain with my family to snow tube and see the Village. I found this resort on Homeaway.com. We stayed in the Hippie units "Hippie" and "Jungle". The rooms were large and comfortable with the smell of fresh cedar. The jungle had a loft with futon which my 12 yr old niece loved. For... More
