5 reasons why our cozy fall cabins are better than a hotel room

One of the best things about taking a vacation is getting away and finding a place to relax. Sure, you can spend the week in a hotel if all you want is somewhere to rest your head at night. But why settle for a room when you can stay in your home away from home.

Here’s five reasons why your vacation will be better if you stay in a cozy cabin at a West Virginia State Park.

You’ll be surrounded by natural beauty

Located in narrow valleys, atop wooded mountains and overlooking some of the most scenic sights in the Mountain State, West Virginia state parks’ cabins offer a truly unique lodging experience you won’t get anywhere else. There aren’t many things in this world better than walking out your cabin’s front door and being surrounded by a wooded forest or steps away from a stunning mountain view.

Hotels can be comfortable, but they can’t compare to the natural beauty you’ll enjoy at a state park cabin. As soon as you settle in, you’ll understand.

You’re closer to all the action

Many state parks are located deep in the mountains, far from the cities, and some of the best attractions and coolest places in West Virginia can be found by traveling a little further down a country road. After a restful night’s sleep, you can get out and go on plenty of outdoor adventures. And because your cabin is nearby, you have more time to enjoy yourself.

You can save money

Do you travel with extended family? Finding a block of rooms at a hotel can be expensive and, depending on the time of year, almost impossible. You can get a vacation rental, but you have to book up to a year in advance and usually have to know someone. What to do? Book a vacation cabin at a state park instead.

These spacious cabins are available at several parks and come in 2, 3 and 4-bedroom configurations with 1 or 2 bathrooms and fully-equipped kitchens. Or opt for a company house at Cass Scenic Railroad Historical State Park. If vacations are about spending time together, then this is the best way to do it.

You can bring your pet

If you have a beloved pet, you know that they are part of the family. And how can you feel at home during your vacation if your animal companion isn’t there to enjoy it with you? Many hotels won’t let you bring your pet into your room. But state parks have special pet-friendly cabins so you don’t have to leave your best pal behind when you stay. And trust us: You’ll want to bring your pet on your state park adventures.

Your cabin is your home away from home

Think about it. Where are you when you’re most relaxed? Are you thinking about home? Many people can’t relax on their vacation because they don’t feel at home. And how could you if you’re sleeping in a cramped hotel room? When you stay in a state park cabin, it becomes your home. There’s plenty of space to spread out and enjoy yourself without feeling like you’re getting in each other’s way.

When you feel at home, you can really unwind and enjoy yourself. Enjoy a much-needed relaxing vacation this fall by booking your cabin at one of West Virginia’s state parks. Cabins are available at Beech Fork, Blackwater Falls, Bluestone, Cacapon, Canaan Valley, Chief Logan, Holly River, Lost River, North Bend, Pipestem, Stonewall Resort, Twin Falls, Tygart Lake and Watoga.
