“cost affordable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

A small hotel that has potential to be a gem with a little improved upkeep. The rooms were nice and basically clean (maybe a few cobwebs here and there.) Some maintenance & repairs were needed on the balcony doors and the steps leading up to the room tend to be slick if wet (pressure treated wood.) The price was right at about $80 per night and it was totally convenient to the Cass Scenic Railroad (across the Green Briar river) and activities on the river. The Last Run restaurant at the railroad was no-frills standard American fare but quaint. You had to drive over the mountain to Snowshoe (about 10 miles) to get to more restaurants. Overall a relaxing slow weekend for my wife & myself.

It is what you should expect of a modestly priced facility in an area frequented by fishermen, skiers and others interested in the outdoors. The store, fastfood, room regestration combination probably would not have scored very high on a restaurant inspection. If your expectations are higher wait for the restaurant in the Cass Country Store (may no be correct name) within sight just across the river. All things considered it was a pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Some overlook the river.

We recently returned from our trip to Cass....luckily,we had reservations at a nearby ski condo. Since it was July, the price was quite reasonable. While waiting for the train we wandered over the bridge to buy some cold drinks at the Bear Creek Lodge. Heavens, it was FILTHY..... Broken kitchen chairs lined the porch, a dusty Christmas tree was still up in the back corner. There were a couple of the colorful locals having what appeared to be some sort of lovers spat in the parking lot. Thank the Lord my sister in law checked the reviews when she was arranging accommodations...or we would have been STUCK in that horrid place.

Let me start by saying, I'll probably stay here again. Just because if you're going for one day, this is the best price by far you're going to find nearby to Snowshoe.

CONS: This place was pretty creepy. No cell service, they provide one shared phone in the hallway.
I woke up at 3am to someone pounding the door down the hall for 2 minutes until i heard the latch turn and it stopped, "good thing I've got cell service to call for help...wait, nope. that's ok, there's a pho...nope, that's in the hall with the Man w the Iron Fists.

The blanket on my bed clearly wasn't cleaned before they gave us the room, indicated by several smeared crusties on the comforter. Looks like a 14 year old discovered Brazzers for the first time with their free WIFI.

Service from the future stroke victims downstairs is about as wretched as it can get. But if you've been the South, you understand that sometimes these people aren't trying to be rude, that's just their demeanor.

PROS: Free WIFI. That was a nice surprise. Also helps you stay connected since virtually no cell service works in that area.

Food downstairs from an incredible greasy spoon truck stop/"convenience" store. Along with free coffee for guests.

Price. $80-$110 a night depending on seasons, weekdays etc. No minimum stay required and no hidden fees. When you checkout you just hand them the key and you're done.

Like I said, this place is kinda gross. But if you're going to board/ski for the day and are just going to use the room for sleep and maybe bring some sheets and pillow of your own, its alright.

Room Tip: Bring some sheets of your own if you're able to. Pillows too.

We usually stay at The Inn at Snowshoe, but this was a last minute trip and we ended up staying here. It wasn't that bad. Basically, if you need to get in touch with anyone you are SOL. We had no cell phone reception, which was to be expected, the "community" phone in the hallway had a clipped wire...interesting. The walls were paper thin as well as the pillows. The locals that were hanging out down in the deli area were sketchy and made us feel like we were in the movie Deliverance. We left at 8 am to get up to the mountain and the place was shut down so we weren't quite sure what to do with the key. We ended up leaving it in the room. Aside from that, it was clean, the beds were comfortable and they have TV with a lot of channels. Improvements would probably be Wifi since it would have been nice to have some way to make sure our kids back home were OK and thicker pillows. They probably can't do anything about the walls.

A few weeks back I stayed at the Bear Creek Lodge in Cass, Wv. This lodge is located in the historic town of Cass located less than 10 miles from Snowshoe, WV. The staff were very accomodating and the rooms were clean and beds comfortable. I would highly recommend this lodge to anyone in the search for an affordable place to staff near Snowshoe with great rooms and staff.

We recently spent two nights in the Bear Creek lodge in Cass WV, and we had a wonderful experience...the rooms were clean and well kept, the staff was friendly and professional, and the scenery was breathtaking...the staff at the lodge were extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and were able to recommend activities to keep us busy during our stay. One employee recommended we rent some bikes and ride the greenbrier trail...which we did and spotted two black bears, numerous deer, and several rabbits....All in all we had a great time..and can't wait to come back next year
