An Intro to Capon Springs

Step 1 of 4:

Imagine you're here!

Picture yourself enjoying life as it was meant to be… relaxing at an all-inclusive secluded resort nestled in the majestic West Virginia mountains. Capon Springs’ rich history, healing water, delicious food, and long-standing traditions create that nostalgic feeling that many generations of guests have described as … coming home.

Understand the Magic

What truly makes Capon Springs different from other resorts are all the “extras” that you just won’t find anywhere else. Operated by multiple generations of the same family, you are welcomed into a warm and caring atmosphere where everything is based on the honor system.   The set-menu and meal times mean all you have to do is show up when the bell rings!

When was the last time you and your family had an opportunity to completely “unplug” and spend quality time together?  Now imagine how great it would be that as your Capon experience draws to a close, you actually feel completely relaxed, restored, and reenergized- and already dreaming about your return!

Greetings Capon Friends!

It’s Ginny here….
Anyone play any good tricks on you today? I remember my mom (Claire Kay) telling me stories about the “pranks” her mother (Virginia Austin) would play on April Fool’s Day.  Grandmuzz (my grandmother) had “funny” silverware that would collapse if you tried to eat with it, rubber food and the one thing that would always start my mom laughing til she was in tears: a dribble glass! It had a small slit near the top and when you tilted it up to drink…the water would dribble down your chin!  I guess you had to be there…but it brings a smile to my face, remembering my mom laughing and thinking of the fun my grandmother had.

It’s been a busy winter for me as I try to get a handle on all that is “Food Service” at Capon Springs!  I have a greater appreciation for the job that Carolyn did for so many years, that’s for sure!  And I ask for your understanding if there are a few bumps and blips this season or if I stare at you blankly as you walk in the dining room while my mind races as I try to remember your name and remember where your table is!   I joked with a few people last year: the first person I forget to set a table for, wins a jar of apple butter!  In all seriousness though, please feel free to come and talk with me about any special dietary needs or any dining room concerns…I’ll do my best to work things out.

And before I move on to other things, I have to mention Capon’s Food Service supervisors.  In working more closely with them this winter, I have come to see just how much they care about Capon and how truly dedicated they are. Even knowing most of them for many years, I just had no idea.  Capon is truly blessed to have such amazing co-workers. They certainly make my job so much easier!

And speaking of amazing co-workers: this year, Alicia LaFollette, another long time co-worker and Ruby (in the office at night)’s daughter-in-law, will officially be your “go to person” for all that is Spa!   Last year, Alicia begun gradually taking on more and more of the daily responsibility of running the Spa.  I know many of you know me as “the Spa Lady”…but this year Alicia’s ready for the title!  I will still be glad to answer questions and I think Alicia will still have me finding you in the Dining Room to ask you about spa appointments…

My family is doing well.  Megan and Brian and Sam have dogs now…. No they are NOT my grand-dogs…. But I do admit to having a basket of dog toys and treats as well as special water and food dishes at my house!  🙂  No grandchildren yet!

Seeing Sam’s passion about Capon’s Farm and most things Capon is an unexpected joy.   He’s had a busy winter. You’ll have to ask him about a title he and Eddie now share!  See if you can catch up with him and get a tour of the Farm, the almost completely re-built barn and our new “Eggmobile”!  (Look for the full story about the barn renovation in an upcoming Capon Weekly!)  And with Megan living a little closer now (in Frederick, MD) she has been able to work with Jonathan on some projects, like launching and managing Capon’s FaceBook page.  Working in the “outside world” for a few years has given her some different perspectives about Capon but her love for Capon still seems to be running strong in her blood!   Eddie and I are most certainly lucky to have such amazing “kids” – son-in-law included! 

I’ve rambled on enough…. Hopefully we will see you soon.  Will you be joining us for Easter Weekend?  I have a few “Food Service” surprises planned!
