Host your next group getaway at Cacapon’s historic The Old Inn

Planning a family or class reunion? Bridal party? Work retreat? Whatever the occasion, The Old Inn is the ideal setting for your group get-together. This historic building, considered West Virginia State Park’s first lodge, at Cacapon Resort State Park can accommodate up to 32 guests, so it’s spacious enough for the whole group, but cozy enough to allow for quality time together.

History Meets Modern Comfort

Set on a scenic mountaintop in the Eastern Panhandle, Cacapon Resort also boasts a full-service lodge and guest cabins, but The Old Inn is a gem for those seeking a private retreat for a group gathering.

Built by the Civilian Conservation Corps in the 1930s, this stately inn features hand-hewn log beams and guest rooms with tongue and groove walls of wormy chestnut and knotty pine. While its atmosphere calls to mind Colonial days, its amenities are streamlined for modern convenience. Inside you’ll find 12 bedrooms, 8 full baths and 1 half bath. The bedrooms include a mix of king, queen, twin, bunk bed, offering plenty of comfort for every individual.

A spacious kitchen is equipped with a commercial stove, ice machine, two refrigerators, two dishwashers, a commercial microwave and coffee maker, toaster, cookware and dishes. Additionally, the Old Inn boasts a large dining room, that can comfortably accommodate the entire group. Cable television is provided in the two common rooms and Wi-Fi is available. An outdoor fire ring is provided for your group to enjoy some cozy time together under the stars. The entire first floor is ADA-accessible, including a bedroom and private bathroom.

For larger groups, the lodge offers over 13,000 square feet of meeting space, perfect for larger groups and conferences. From large conference rooms, to private meeting spaces, the accommodations, amenities, and services available at Cacapon will ensure a seamless and enjoyable experience.

Stay and Play

Because the Old Inn is rented as a single unit, you’ll have the whole place to yourselves. Gather in the common rooms to play board games, watch movies or host informal meetings. Enlist your friends to cooking duties in the kitchen. Bring your guitar and host sing-alongs outside around the fire pit. 

But that’s not all. You’ll also have access to all the amenities and recreational opportunities Cacapon has to offer. Enjoy a guided horseback ride through the rolling hills of the resort. Challenge your friends to a game on the Robert Trent Jones Sr. 18-hole championship golf course. Burn off some energy and take in nature’s beauty on the resort’s extensive network of hiking trails. Hone your marksmanship skills at the Wobble Clays Shooting Range. 

Test your mountain bikes against more than 25 miles of single-track and multilevel trails, as well as a skills course. Meanwhile, water lovers will want to spend all day on Cacapon’s lake, which offers boating, a swimming area, and fishing opportunities.

Food and Relaxation

Once you’re tired out from the day’s activities, pamper your sore muscles with a massage at Cacapon’s Healing Waters Spa. In addition to a wide range of specialty massages, the spa also offers facials, body treatments, manicures, pedicures and more. 

And when you need to refuel, choose from a delectable menu selection at The Prospects Restaurant, kick back with pub fare, cocktails and microbrews at the Legacy Lounge, or grab a sandwich at Getty’s, located at the Pro Shop. 

Venture into the nearby town of Berkeley Springs to find additional dining options and browse the charming boutique shops and art galleries. Plan a visit to historic Berkeley Springs State Park, where you can soak in the park’s Roman baths or fill your water bottles with cool, clear spring water straight out of the mountain.
