Warning -You'll want to pack your own food for this lodge. We visited just a few days ago, while on a fall color tour around WV. The dining room at Hawk's Nest Lodge was a great disappointment in just about every way possible - with one exception - the breath-taking view of the New River Gorge. We arrived when the...

The lodge at Hawk's Nest State Park in WV is a very nice basic and economical place to stay. It is clean and neat. We had an excellent view of the New River Gorge from the room. There is also a balcony, which we enjoyed even in December. We hiked a couple of the trails with great views of the...

The hotel was very clean and the room was small, but nice. The view from our room was spectacular! We took the tram ride, which was ok, and the jet boat ride was fun, but loud. The complementary breakfast in the dining room was ok. The hotel claims that there is wi-fi in all of the rooms, but it only...

Wilderness, beauty, and quiet. If that is what you are looking for then come here. There is all kinds of hiking to do and if you pass by the mystery shack...pull in! One of the coolest roadside attractions I've been to. This place rocks!

This little gem is located on the new river gorge right above hawk's nest lake. It's not the newest place but most rooms have balcony over looking the gorge. The view is stunning. Fog will hang over gorge in evening, stars are super bright for city people, then there is the trains the run through gorge providing noise but a...

When we drive from the Chicago area to the Outer Banks, we like to visit some of the National Parks, even going a little way out of our way to do so. We've visited the Smoky Mountains and Shenandoah, and so this year we decided to visit the New River Gorge again. However, there is not a lot of choices...

We stopped here for the night on our way home. The lodge is nice and quiet. At first when i was trying to find our room, we were way down at the bottom. We walked down 4 flights of stairs and finally found our room. The room was modest but was clean. Had a balcony to look at the view,...

Stop in for a visit and tram ride, was a raining day but we were still able to ride the tram and at $4.00 totally worth it. The nature center is very well put together for children. We also walked down to "lovers leap" don't be it intimidated by 100 steps down it's really not that bad and the view...

Made Hawks Nest home base for a few days of hiking and rafting. Good location and incredible views. Room was on small side but balcony views of river compensated for size. Breakfast wasn't much and restaurant was expensive for dinner so plan accordingly. Definitely check on suite availability if plan to spend much time in room with family of four.

Where else can you walk out the back door and ride a tram down to the river for a boat trip to the New River Gorge bridge? Where else can you book a room with a gorgeous view of the tram, river, boat, and hills of WV? The room came with a fantastic view and a balcony for relaxing. The...
