“Fun family getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

We just had a fabulous weekend at Ace Adventure Resort, two families with 5 children ages 6,9,10,12 and 13 along with 4 adults and everyone had a great time! When we arrived Saturday it was raining and unseasonably cool out we had reserved a raft trip on the Upper New for Sunday morning along with half day lake passes to be used Saturday afternoon when we checked in the clerk told us they would go ahead and let us use the half day Monday as well as Saturday since the weather was a little iffy, worked out great we were able to enjoy all the toys on the lake on Saturday when it wasn't very crowded at all, all 9 of us had a blast, the kids espresso ally liked the zip line, blob and bungee trampoline. We reserved two Cedar Cabins which were super cute, no running water or bathroom but they did have cold AC, a fan, comfortable beds, a small fridge and coffee maker. Common bathrooms were a short walk. If say the cabins would sleep 6 comfortably. We enjoyed the raft trip on Sunday, our group had a raft and a Duckie (inflatable kayak) two of the more daring kiddos spent the day in the Duckie while the rest of us enjoyed the larger raft, a few exciting rafts but overall a pretty easy trip, the guides were great and seemed to be really concerned that we were having a good time. We stopped a few times on the trip to swim, eat lunch and jump off a rock overall it was a great day for all. During the weekend we ate at the dinner buffet and breakfast buffet twice and were pleasantly surprised with the selection and quality of the food, kinda on the pricey side though. There wee many activities we didn't have time to do over the weekend but we look forward to returning next year.

Nine of us just returned from our Ace Adventure. Just getting there is the first adventure if you are traveling in an RV on those mountain curves. Six of us stayed in two of the cabins and 3 used the campground. Camping was spacious and enjoyable with good location near showers but they did leave something to be desired. Cabins were nice with hot tub and picnic table. A fire pit is provided at each cabin also. Our cabin had a futon which would not be comfortable for sleeping but only one used it and we placed 4 pillows and one rolled up blanket on it and made it more comfortable for one person to sleep. If you go, be sure to buy the meal package. There were incredible buffets for breakfast (lots of fruit, cereal, bacon, sausage, potatoes, biscuits and gravy, sweet rolls, etc) and the dinner buffet was incredible. One night we had barbecued fibs that were fabulous! The real reason to go there is for the adventure and those who did white water rafting and zip lining said it was incredible. Their guides made it so much fun. Our "adventurers" ranged in age from 12 to 72 and the "old guy" had a blast!! For those who cannot do the adventuress, there are sightseeing areas. We went to a winery and sightseeing. We will definitely go back.

This is a great place to stay for a weekend or so. I went with my overnight camp so there was around 55 of us. The girls stayed in cabins and us boys stayed in the 2 tent things. I hate staying in tents and I actually enjoyed staying in these ones! There is so much room to play outdoors, or build a fire. The main area of the resort was nice too, and the breakfast buffet was amazing. White water rafting the new river was an amazing experience, as was repelling and climbing rocks. Also the adventure park is cool too. Overall a perfect way to represent a beautiful state and boost its reputation. The staff are very generous too.

Stayed at Ace this past weekend. We had 4 in our group and stayed in a cabin. The cabins are very nice and clean. We had a hot tub, a/c, fire pit , grill and picnic table. The staff is very nice and helpful. We rafter on Saturday with Marilyn who was by far the best guide we have had so far. She was very experienced and showed us a great time. She is safety conscience and kept all of us in the raft. They cook you a great lunch on the river too!

We booked a "quiet,secluded lake view chalet" and I was very disappointed. It is right next to a small lake which had kids yelling and playing during the day. In the evening and at night there was more road noise than at home. It was not kept up well very clean. There were dust bunnies and the shower was dirt No way I would have showered without flip flops. I am 5'8 130lb and I barely fit in the tiny shower. The water pressure was so bad it took 30 min to get cleany. The hot tub cover was held together with lowes packing tape.Most of the cabin needs redone. The bed linens were old and did not smell fresh. The towels were AWFUL! Like using sandpaper. Lastly, I was awake at 5:30 because there are huge east facing windows with no curtains. Who wants to wake up with the sun on vacation ?!? Not me. I definitely would not return and I feel this was Mis advertised and very overpriced.

Heidi P, Manager at ACE Adventure Resort, responded to this review, July 18, 2014
Hello,

Thanks again for another review of your experience at ACE. Again, we do read all of our reviews and we do take these suggestions very seriously. We have changed some of the text on our website regarding these cabins. As you mentioned, they are very close to the ACE Lake and the center of livelihood of our property. Many folks desire these cabins because of their convenient close-to-the-action location. My apologies, that was clearly not the experience you desired.

As per the rest of your review, our maintenance and housekeeping crews have been notified. Although we do not claim to be a five star resort, we are disappointed to read about your experience and hope to do all we can to make sure another guest does not leave feeling the same way.

Thanks again,
Heidi Prior

We were at Ace from 7-5-2014 to. 7-11-2014 and had a great time from the time we got there. Kids enjoyed the lake everyday. This was our second time there & we are so happy we were able to bring our 2 dogs this time. Thanks ACE for making that change! The guides are awesome making sure everyone is having a good time but safe at the same time. We made sure to get Steve Reid as our whitewater rafting guide. He's awesome! We did a scenic bike ride with Lucky as our guide & must say we were lucky to have him. He was very friendly & accommodating. He even picked berries for us along the way. We forgot a purchase we made in his book bag & he made sure we got it back informing the front desk to contact us. The wait staff at the restaurant was also very friendly. In particular John who took really good care of us. ACE staff are a class act . Wonderful place! Definitely will be back. Our doggies too. They loved their walks in the"woods".

My husband and I love whitewater rafting and had yet another memorable trip in mid-June, our third trip with Ace. We didn't think it could top the past two experiences but it did. But this is not surprising because we've always marveled at what an efficiently run company Ace is - it has its operating model down to a science. Its customer service has always been excellent and is consistent among different individuals. The past two times we rafted with Ace we did not stay overnight on Ace property but this time we decided to book a cabin for the night before the rafting trip, and we were glad we did. The cozy park cabin we stayed in was clean and well-stocked with plenty of towels, soap, dishes, etc. The hot tub was awesome and such a nice way to relax. While the cabin was not large or fancy, it had everything we needed with the best part being it felt extremely private. My only recommendation would be for it to come equipped with a portable fan for the bedroom. It was also nice to be able to roll out of bed and be right there on property for the trip the next morning.

On to the rafting trip: we did the Double Lower New trip (rafting the same terrific stretch twice in one day) on a 14 ft raft and were paired with a couple guys that we enjoyed getting to know. Our guide was Zach, and we couldn't have gotten luckier. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable about all things rafting, he has extensive experience - from WV whitewater to regular guiding in Costa Rica. He was also just plain fun - laid back, smart and entertaining. The water was running great that day and we had some amazing surfing experiences, laughing and yelling almost to the point of exhaustion. Zach was top notch at getting the best surfing done. We're hoping to do the Gauley in the Fall and if so we will absolutely want to request Zach. That said, all of the guides are great and were super friendly. We had fun mingling at lunch (grilled burgers and chicken, veggies, chips, and what might have been the best cookies ever...). And the shower facilities were so nice to have after the trip. Ace really does an outstanding job. We can't wait to be back.
