This is a wonderful place to visit, especially if you like breath taking views of the mountain. Close by is a trail to really get a birds eye view of the valley. The beauty in the park and at the resort are amazing. If you want to feel close to nature this is a great place for you. It is... More

From the outside, the lodge looks a little run down but once you get inside, it's actually very nice. We stayed in a corner suite with a great view of the canyon. It was very clean and cute. Staff were friendly and helpful. We would stay again.

We booked one night, the room was very nice with a fantastic view of the gorge. We took the tram down to the jetboat and enjoyed the views and the jetboat captain was very entertaining. Nice trails on the property with breathtaking views.

This was my 2nd stay at the Hawks Nest Lodge--once again it was very enjoyable. The place has a beautiful view of the New River gorge and you can hear and see the train running across the track at the water. There is a 10 pm curfew so it's a quiet place to stay. Just don't plan on eating in... More

We were traveling to Virginia from Indiana. We did not want to stop overnight in Charleston so we decided to go off the beaten path to Hawks nest. Best decision yet! They had a beautiful room with a view of the gorge. We travel with our dog and the room was very clean not like some chains. Nice dining room.... More

We had a great time at this beautiful spot. The room was nice with local handmade soaps. The nearby trails were great and not to hard to maneuver with my bad ankle. Staff was so sweet and welcoming. Only problem was the restaurants food. Again the staff was gracious But the food was awful. Very old food on the buffet.... More

This small state park is worth the visit if you're travelling through West Virginia on US 19. It is only a about 10 miles from US 19, located on the rim of the New River Gorge. There are really fine views of the gorge and there is a tram that will take you down to the river if you don't... More

What a wonderful experience. Unique layout with tons of retro character. Room with a canyon view was wonderful. Two queen beds filled the room, which was very clean. Restaurant was a bonus and the staff were friendly and so hospitable. Free bfast was very adequate.

Had a gorge view which was awesome despite fog. Room was standard room with double beds but no refrigerator or microwave (we failed to see the small print). Unfortunately, we didn't plan well to take advantage of the tram rides or the swimming pool because nothing opened until Memorial Day and we were there during the week. The worst part... More
