The town of Cass, West Virginia is not much different from 100 years ago. There is not much there to do. Bear Creek Lodge is just an 8-room motel. There was no phones in the room and the phone was at the end of the hall and the light above the phone had burn out. Plus I don't even think it worked, so we had to go to the front desk and use their phone. The staff was friendly. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was very clean. One exception, one towel had a brown stain on it. Do not bring your cell phones because you will not have any service because of an observatory just up the road. It needs to have a quiet zone, so 13,000 square miles of dead spots. You really do not have any cell phone service until you get back to the Interstate, which is 75 miles away. We went on the night train and is was a very exciting adventure. The only thing was is was dark and when you went up to Whittaker Station, you could not see anything. I would encourage to do it in the daytime. The food at the Last Run Restaurant was very good. The shops were not open that evening and I was very disappointed.
