This is a nice, quiet small place, distant from most anything, but still it was enjoyable. The rooms had a small balcony, overlooking some senic hills and small lake. The restaurant had good food, and the servers were all very friendly. The place could use a face lift, but overall it was just fine.
We kept our screened door to the portch open during the night, but the coal trains running nearby kept waking us up.

Stayed there for one night only in October 2011. Had planned on a second night but when we saw the condition of the place we moved on. Very dated, run down and out in the middle of no where with nothing else to do other than the river ride. Restaurant was barely tolerable. Went into a Mexcian place in town that was great. The bathrooms were so tiny and outdate....where do you put anything? We won't be back.

Room Tip: Only get a room with a view of the gorge. The view is great but that is all there is good to say about it.

Once we got to our room through the maze of hallways, it had an bug smell. Appreciate that there weren't any bugs, but had to buy a renuzit for the duration of our stay. Beds were fine. I wish they would update the shower curtains. I have been spoiled by the curved shower curtains of other hotels. The whole time you are taking a shower, the curtain is touching you. This drives me crazy. I want to donate money for the lodge to update the shower curtain rods.

Room Tip: Skip the restaurant.

We were with a tour group, so only stayed one night, so couldn't enjoy everthing they offered.However, we loved our spacious corner room that offered a fantastic view of the New River Gorge and the trees in full color around and below us. The restaurant was so-so, but only choice in this rather remote location. We also took the tram to the bottom of the gorge for a fun ride on a "jet" boat, designed for giving tours of the river and bridge. The day was chilly, overcast and spitting rain, but we had a great time. Our "Capt'n" was a grizzled ol' guy, full of funny one-liners that kept us all laughing. Although it was quite a hike, in the evening before dark, we enjoyed local country dance music at the pavillion way down in the gorge below the lodge. Wish we could have stayed longer, but we'll be back on our own one day! I

Room Tip: Corner suites are the way to go if you want a great view of the gorge.

The place is now rather sad. It's old and rather an odd layout. We had a suite which was huge and wonderful. It had fridge & microwave and lots of space. The bathroom was a combination of dated (blue tile in the tub) with new light and sink fixtures.
The location is very good for the New River Gorge. Very convenient to get to the NR Bridge, etc. And the room prices are very reasonable.
But do yourself a favor and do NOT go into their restaurant. There are very nice places in Fayetteville to eat and it's only 10 miles away.
Continental breakfast was included with the room and even that was pathetic. They don't label anything so it's always mystery food. It was one type of cold cereal, oatmeal, grits, cold hard boiled eggs and maybe something in the baked goods - but probably not. They ran out of even english muffins and they don't keep things replenished.
We had dinner also and did their buffet - again all mystery food and even the staff didn't know what some of it was. Some of it was good and some was bad.
The view of the gorge from the restaurant is great.

We did take the tram down to the river and did the jet boat ride to the bridge which was nice.

Room Tip: the two room suite was good except it was over the common lounge area and was noisy.
