“Go, just go”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

The lodge & food are totally average. The *key* is to stay in one of the older cabins with the deer, foot paths & clear nights in order to watch the milky way float past. We've stayed in 5 of the older cabins & have some faves (not telling). Cross country and downhill are nearby, but sometimes it's awfully tempting just to stay in the park.

Just average !! The room was clean but the decor and hotel overall is very dated. No perks just a bed and an average dining room. There was no iron or hair dryer, take your own !! OK for a overnight stay, the park and the falls are beautiful..

Stayed with my husband and two kids (ages 6 & 9) on Thurs/Fri night of Labor Day Weekend. Far drive on windy roads to the lodge. Few people upon our arrival on Thurs night and we were the only ones at the on site restaurant . The food was average and they had run out of hot dogs. Best available restaurant, CJ's, was located in Parsons about 30 minutes away. The rooms are dated and still using an actual "key" to enter room. Rooms are clean. Lots of staff sitting around behind front desk that area not helpful or forthcoming with information. No laundry facilities. Pool and hot tub are one of the better amenities. Did find helpful parks dept employees driving around. Falls and hiking trails are nice. Recommend this location for couples, but not families.

I would have rated the cabin excellent except for the few stains on the ceiling in the bathroom. Other than that the cabin was clean, included all linens and towels (no shampoo), pots, pans, saute pans, utensils, glasses and plates. If you do not want to cook at the cabin you can get dinner at the Lodge Restaurant. The fireplace was stocked with wood, that was nice to have on the cool evenings we had in August. The cabin was spacious, two bedrooms, eat in kitchen, full size refrigerator and oven. Be aware: No TV, but you can go to the Lodge for TV and internet at no charge. Very nice wooded setting. The cabins in the parks older section are spaced well apart to give you a secluded feeling. Picnic table and grill outside. Our deck on the back had seating, but not on the front porch. We really felt it was a homey comfortable place to stay.

If you want creature comforts like AC, TV and Wi-Fi ask for a newer cabin, but be aware those cabins are in cleared fields, and almost on top of each other.

Room Tip: There is a spa and indoor swimming pool at the Lodge. There are rooms at the Lodge, but I did not s...

We spent two nights at the lodge and found it to be very comfortable if a bit outdated. Rooms are small and without the standard amenities such as coffee maker, hair dryers, mini fridge or microwave. There is, however, wifi and a nice flat-screen tv in each room.That said, it was exactly what we expected to find in this somewhat isolated area--high in the Alleghenies. The scenery is spectacular and if you are a hiker you will not be able to cover all the trails that are available. Some are very challenging...some not so much. Food in the lodge was very good if a bit pricy for the area. Great breakfast and dinner buffets if you enjoy that sort of thing. Very clean and well-maintained with indoor pool, jacuzzi and exercise room. Many things within a short drive--Dolly Sods Wilderness area, Canaan Valley Resort, Seneca Rocks and, of course, Blackwater Falls which is worth every step down the mountain to see. Get a room with a view of the canyon...also worth the few extra dollars.

Room Tip: Check bed sizes carefully and pay the extra few dollars for a canyon side room.

Hotel needs updating. It was clean but out of date. Backwater falls is a nice site to see you can walk there on the trail. It's not for the handicap, because of the steps and rocks on the way. Dinning at the hotel was great.

But, other than that, it was a perfect place to stay. Restaurant with limited menu, but good, country, home cooking. Try the fried potatoes and gravy.
Spend the extra few dollars for a canyon view room with balcony. It is amazing! Plus, there is a pool, exercise room and hot tub. Take the time to walk to the falls, it is worth every step.

Room Tip: Be sure to get a canyon view room with balcony. It is worth the extra few dollars.
