Stayed for St. Patrick's Day (Southern WV Irish Festival) at McKeever lodge and again later in the week in a two bedroom cottage. Hiking, fishing, trail riding, indoor swimming, bird watching, golf, and shopping for handmade WV art and crafts, all in the same place. Great deal on lodging: about $75/night at McKeever Lodge, and about $105 /night for a two bedroom cottage with fireplace, full kitchen and charcoal grill.

Room Tip: At McKeever Lodge, it's worth the extra to get a "gorge view" room.

We stayed in a two bedroom cottage with fully equipped kitchen. The cottage was a cute throwback- wood paneling, stone fireplace, lots of windows for natural light. We really enjoyed the fireplace with a supply of logs and kindling. The place was spotless and beds very comfortable. The only issue we encounterd was when the stove wouldn't turn on, we called the front desk at the main lodge and within minutes a maintenance worker appeared and flipped the breaker to have it working.

We were really pleased with the variety of activites available given the winter season-- a game room with pool table, etc. The stables were open for trail rides -- the folks there were very accomodating to our young nephew who was too afraid to ride after all. The indoor pool was a disappointment, as it was under maintenance and was too cold to get in, but it looked fun! There were sleds available for rent in the event that enough snow fell to make that a possiblity. Wi-Fi is available in the main lodge lobby as well as a computer for guest use.

The food at the Bluestone dining room was decent-- we ordered steaks and pasta dishes for dinner, which was good, not great. The dining is operated by a seperate company, not the park itself. The breakfast was better-- eggs, crispy bacon, pancakes, biscuits. Service was a bit slow both times, but you are able to enjoy the view of mountains and deer, so really, what's the hurry?

A wonderful place for a quiet retreat.

We read many reviews on this place and decided to go there on a wintery trip with the kids.
What a wonderful idea, this place is completely worth going to. The kids and us all had a blast, the scenery is spectacular,the staff is very friendly and the town its in is just the same. Winterplace is very close and is also a terrific place to go. We can't wait to go back again, probably gonna try a differnt season each time we go, this place will be one of our families new favorite place to vacation.

Room Tip: Stay in the cottages they're inexpensive and gives you privacy with a view.

Like it's counterpart Twin Falls, Pipestem represents excellent value. The rooms are clean and comfortable whether you are in the main lodge, or down the tram ride beside the river. The food at the lodge is very good. Two great golf courses are on site, and abound with deer and wild turkeys, just to make the game a little more interesting. We will certainly be back again and again.

Have been going to Pipestem for almost thirty years. the food services have declined greatly over the last several years. The buffet in the Bluestone dining room in the main lodge is getting worse every year that we go. The Friday night seafood buffet is now a rice/pasta bar with seafood flavoring--not food for a diabetic. When we ate this year, meat choices were minimal on the buffet (small pieces of ham in thick pineapple sauce, small pieces of fish, tiny pieces of chicken in dry dumplings that made you gag, and chicken, rice and broccoli casserole). Service at Mountain Creek restaurant has also declined. Two of the last three years that I have visited, the food has arrived cold but the prices keep going up. this year, preference was given to walk-in non-lodge guests for seating. We made a reservation but as far as seating goes it means nothing. When we questioned our extremely young inexperienced hostess, nothing was resolved over our table preference. We repeatedly asked to see the chef/manage to no avail. We sat down anyway and when my husband returned to his room to get something while I waited at the table--the hostess and a waitress were talking about him. When we were trying to decide whether to leave--our waiter said "order or leave, I have other tables to wait on." We left and went to Brandon's and had a great steak for half the price of what a Mt. Creek dinner costs. We complained to the chef after leaving the restaurant and to the assistant park superintendent who passed our complaint on to the superintendent. We received a phone call from the superintendent after trying several times to talk to him about out complaint. Two weeks later we have not received an apology from the waiter or the hostess involved. We canceled our next week's stay and are reconsidering nest year's reservation. We only ate once in the dining room except for getting minimal food in the continental breakfast free for all Mountain Creek guest. My advice, if you stay at Pipestem, bring you own food or eat at Brandon's Kirk's Dairy Queen, or Gino's. the food at Pipestem since they lost Chef Stalnaker is overpriced, of poor quality and members of the staff are rude and inexperienced.

Room Tip: Rooms are fine--the food is awful.
