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!

Over the years we’ve collected a list of Capon “must dos” suggested by our long-time guests. Here are five standouts (in no particular order) that are sure to make your 2019 Capon visit a memorable one.  Give one or all of them a try!

1) Refresh yourself for the day with a Polar Bear Plunge

Take a pre-breakfast jump in the Capon pool! Nothing will jump-start your day quite like a rejuvenating dip in 68 degrees of pure, refreshing Capon Springs water! In the spring and fall you might be surprised to find that the water actually feels warm, thanks to chilly early morning air temperatures.   History fun fact: Capon founder, Lou Austin, was the original member of the Polar Bear Plunge Club… without fail, and no matter the weather, he started each day with a swim in the Capon pool. Third generation family member Jonathan Bellingham provides his own tips for morning dips done right!

2) Take the time to be grateful with our morning flag raising ceremony. 

If you’re really going to do it right, arrive early (around 8:00) and sit in a rocker with a cup of coffee and take it all in.  There’s something magical about the light dancing across the lawn in the morning hours. As the music plays through the trees, everyone gathers on the Main porch.  Soon you will experience that stirring feeling of patriotic pride watching children (especially your own!) raise “Old Glory” to the National Anthem just as generations before you.  Since all the flags were first flown over the US Capitol Building in Washington DC, the raiser receives a certificate signed by a Capon family member to memorialize the achievement.

3) Ponder the vastness of space and the ancient history of life on the earth.  

On clear evenings, you can gaze upon the full view of the Milky Way Galaxy from the top deck of the golf clubhouse. Watch and wait for shooting stars- wishes really can come true!  During the day, stroll down to the shale pit by “Hog Heaven” and dig for fossilized oceanic plants and animals from the early formation of our planet. Take a sample treasure home to you show your friends this coolest of souvenirs from you Capon trip.

4) Slow down to the rhythm of relaxation.  

Swing on the “Big Swing” on the lawn.  We recommend this especially if you are over the age of 12.  Grown ups who haven’t taken the time for this simple pleasure of childhood in awhile, say it’s good for the soul.  Same goes for a rest in one of the many lawn hammocks. Let the sway of the gentle motion and light breeze across your cheek soothe you into a nice afternoon nap.  This is where many a grandparent has rocked themselves to sleep with a toddler resting contentedly on their chest.

5) Stroll through and be awed by nature.

Hike to Eagle Rock where the view into the Shenandoah Valley is the sought after prize.  In springtime, the journey up takes you through a rich lush white corridor of mountain laurel providing wonder on the way to the top as well.  Looking for Narnia? Stroll along the Orange Trail through a cathedral like pine forest. Here the imagination is transported to another world of wonder and awe.
