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!

NOTE: 2024 Opening Day is Thursday May 2nd! Current May/June Openings

1860 Civilian Celebration Program Guidelines

Lectures and Classes – Guests are welcome to join any of the lectures and classes, all of which there is room.  Guests not in period dress are asked to sit behind CivCel folks so the full dress nature of the event isn’t compromised for CivCel attendees.  These are each $10 to attend.

The Cedar Creek Battlefield Tour on Friday is open for guests to attend for $18 – guests will need to get a boxed lunch.  Guests should show up at 7am on the Main House porch.  Participants are carpooling so if there is room in one of the vehicles we can add them in, otherwise they would need to drive.

The Parasol Exhibition – Capon guests are welcome if they purchase tickets in advance (contact Capon directly):  $25/single; $45/couple ($20 each for others in their party).  No children under 16.

Workshops – first, the parasol workshops are very technical and structured for advanced sewers – and both are completely sold out.  If someone is interested in taking one of our other workshops, please contact Mandy or Darline so they can immediately check with the instructors to see if they have enough supplies.  Instructors usually bring a little extra, but we may have our own attendees opting to take a workshop at the last minute and they, of course, have first consideration.

Friday Workshops are $18 plus materials costs.

  • Making a Man’s Cravat ($15/materials)
  • Studying and Reproducing Antique Jewelry ($25/materials)
  • Calling Cards ($10/materials)

The dance workshop is $5.

Saturday and Sunday classes and workshops are $12, plus materials charges. Most materials charges are $5 to pay for photocopying.

  • Civilian Interaction with the Military
  • Those Exquisite Parasols (this is a lecture, not the workshop)
  • Advances in Mourning Research
  • History and Evolution of Pockets in Ladies Clothing ($15/materials)
  • Enhancing your Impression of an Ancestor or Famous Person
  • Period Pastimes – Preserving Nature

Victorian Ball – Guests in period dress are welcome to attend with a $45 fee.  A row of seating will be provided for guests in modern clothing can observe unobtrusively.

Dining/meals – There is something going on at nearly every lunch and dinner, which guests may find interesting and certainly will be able to see/hear in the dining room.

Photography – Our participants are coming so they can enjoy the resort “through 19th Century eyes.”  In that spirit, Capon guests are asked not to request our participants to stop and have photos taken with them or their children – most times, our folks will oblige and not be rude, but we would like to remove that distraction.  Instead, we ask that all general photography be from a distance (ex. around 50 feet or more away).  However, on Friday night there is an opportunity for Capon guests to ask for photographs with our participants (within reason, of course), during the parasol exhibition outside the Meeting House.
