"Fall is my favorite time at Capon,” says Jonathan Bellingham, Recreation Manager and 3rd generation family member at Capon Springs. “Most of the favorite things I like to do happen then: fires in the fireplace, breathing fresh crisp cool air, hearty aroma from apple butter making, rejuvenating brisk walks and relaxing with friends."
If this doesn’t sound like paradise, then we’re not sure what is. From the moment you arrive at this all-inclusive retreat, you will discover its town-square layout and friendly camp-like atmosphere makes it stand out from all the rest. Made-from-scratch daily meals are one of Capon Springs’ highlights; gather together for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and treat your taste buds to an assortment of fantastic options that are made from scratch and served either family or buffet style.
After you’ve had your fill, you can wander out to explore this magnificent destination in a variety of ways. Take it easy with a round of golf on the nine-hole course, cast your line at one of two half-acre ponds that are stocked with bluegill, bass, catfish, and trout, or simply play a game of badminton, tennis, or frisbee golf. You can’t miss out on a hiking trip through the surrounding mountains; bask in the bright colors of the fall foliage as you trek through the trails and keep your eyes open for any signs of wildlife. If you’re looking to just relax, then nap in a hammock, read a book in the library or stop by the Hygeia Bath House and Spa for a soothing treatment!
“Where else can you create your own personal group experience at a 19th century resort?” says Sam Brill, Capon Springs’ Farm Manager and 4th generation family member. “The ones that have done this before are blown away with how well we take care of them! There are only a few times when we can offer exclusive use. So every time we do, they get booked out fast."
So don’t waste any more time! Plan your next group getaway to this breathtaking West Virginia destination and enjoy the opportunity to get closer with your colleagues and friends. The relaxed and friendly environment will make you feel right at home, so much so that you might find it difficult to leave but easy to return. Once you have made your first trip to Capon, you are considered an old friend.
