Rafting & Kayaking
The New River and Gauley River are two of the world's most
popular whitewater-rafting streams. Tens of thousands of
rafters, beginners and experts, challenge their rapids every
year. More than a dozen of America's most-trusted rafting
companies operate base camps less than 15 minutes from the guest
house and will be happy to arrange a trip for any age group or
level of mastery.

Rock Climbing & Rappelling
Rock climbers appreciate our proximity to the Meadow River
Gorge. Less than a mile away and running for more than a mile
along the rim of the gorge, these sandstone cliffs also outcrop
nearby around the New River Gorge and Summersville Lake, two of
the most popular climbing areas in the East. However, the Meadow
River cliffs are isolated and relatively unexplored. Plenty of
outfitters are available to guide your trip or provide expert
information on routes and problems.

Hiking & Biking
Hundreds of miles of hiking and biking trails wander through the
nearby national parklands, visiting old ghost towns, towering
cliffs, and spectacular waterfalls. Many trails have been
developed by the National Park Service, but many more await your
investigation among state parks and private woodlands beyond.

Hunting & Fishing
Hundreds of square miles of public hunting land and countless
lakes and streams await hunters and anglers. Deer, turkey, and
bear are plentiful in the forests around the national parklands
and in the nearby Monongahela National Forest. Anglers will
never forget their adventures on our legendary cold-water
streams and on Summersville and other nearby lakes.
