We stayed there 8/07 for five days for the Concours Owners Group (Motorcycles) National Rally. We had a wonderful time there. The rooms are neat, clean and spacious with chairs made from logs. Deer visited on the back lawn nightly.
They have a nice snack bar, buffet style meals at the restaurant, a large swimming pool with a large hot whirlpool (yeah!) indoors and a larger swimming pool outdoors. The park was beautiful, they have camp sites, and a ton of activities for every desire.
I would stay here over a Hilton any day!
we had no problems at all with our stay. they did say we could check in early but we ended up getting delayed in morgantown by traffic so we were past our requested time. Staff was wonderful and check in was fine even tho they had spelled our last name wrong on confirmation. Its a beautiful place to stay, yes it could use updates and modernization, but it was a reasonable rate and beautiful scenery and lots of things to do at resort and in surrounding areas. we usually stay at nicer places but my hubby was pleased by our stay and he is usually the critic that can be hard to please! we would stay here again if we were going to do the same things again. We had a good time playing golf at their course, it was very beautiful and peaceful.
Canaan Valley is a State Park. If you're expecting the Hilton, go stay at the Hilton.
We found the lodge rooms to be clean and well maintained. The restaurant and snack bar offered great food as very reasonable prices. All of the activities listed seemed to be there and as represented.
I took my kids across the road to the Ski Area and we rode the chair lift. We loved it! Beautiful park, wonderful staff, reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back!
This resort was really nicer than I expected. We visited 15-16 July 2006.
Activities= Though it was raining when we go there, the resort staff advised us on activites we could do until it stopped raining. We arrived late morning and still had time to take advantage of the adventure pass of which we participated in rockwall climb, eurobungy, mountain bike, miniature golf, tennis, geocaching,ski lift to the top of the mountain and spend time in the pool all before 8PM.
Food= they have a resturant and a full service snack bar and the food was pretty good in both was pretty good affordable
Rooms= Clean spacious
Staff= I cannot say enough about the staff...everyone was very nice and eager to help answer questions..In fact I lost my wedding rings during some of the outside activities and the staff took the time to help us retrace our steps and help us look for it. One of the very honest staff members found them after we left and made sure I got them back. It may not seem like a big deal but I travel a lot and when you leave/lose something you rarely see it again. For that fact alone we will be returning in the near future. I have nothing but good things to say about this resort.
Black Bear is a hidden gem. It is an incredible year round resort with a community feel in the wilderness.
