“Marvelous scenery, but not much else.”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

The first snowfall of the season was starting as we were leaving the conference. This was an adequate place to stay, but nothing special. All the activies were in the main lodge, so there was a hike involved, and not easy to run back to your room between sessions. The room was very dated, not attractive at all. I doubt that I would go back.

“This is West Virginia”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

While I visited in May there was still some snow on the slopes! Great camping, they have a lodge if you don't camp, plenty of places for picnics, nature trails, biking, ride the ski lift even in summer. Great restaurants around.

“Fun with tubes”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

Did the tubing park late at night. Had a blast! Very easy to do. You sit on a tube, and a line is hooked up to your tube, to pull you back up the mountain. Take your kids to this wonderful place.

“A good stay”
Reviewed July 13, 2012

This was our first time in the Canaan Valley area. We decided to go to the resort since it was one of the few who had electrical power following the recent big storm. The resort is in the midst of building new guest lodgings, which will be completed next year. We stayed in the older, yet quite well maintained building. The towels were great, however, an odd smell improved, yet remained in the room even after a few days.
