For years we have thought of West Virginia as the state that you zip through on I-77 as we went somewhere else. This year, we finally discovered this magical gem.
We were in WV in January (-6 degrees!) but knew we had to come back. We found Hawk's Nest SP on the internet and the minute we walked in the front door we were like children going from window to window saying "look at this! look at that!"
The views are spectacular, you overlook the river and those beautiful WV mountains. The people? They don't get any friendlier, whether Steven at the front desk or any of the other guests - I have never been anywhere with friendlier people.
The room was great, immaculate, large bath, very comfy bed, of course the views! When you go (not "if" but "when") you must take the aerial tram and the jetboat. We are already planning to return in the fall. What a gem!!
