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!

Our New Reservations System is Underway!

Well, it has been a long time coming!  Over the last number of years we have been researching and experimenting to find a reservation system that can work with Capon’s unique room arrangements and all-inclusive billing.  This winter we took the plunge with a reservation and point of sale system that combines the spa, store and golf purchases into one total bill at check out.  During this transition we ask for your patience as we transfer both the past database and new 2020 reservation requests over to the new system.

If you haven’t yet made a reservation for 2020 (or aren’t sure if you made a reservation and want to double check) please feel free to fill out this form and we will get back in touch with you.  We will be sending a reservation confirmation email along with updated rate information as soon we finish our transition to the new system.

We are excited about how this can enable us to serve you better and keep the traditions of Capon going for generations to come!


Introducing, Shelia Kelican, Reservations Manager:

Shelia started off our 2019 season as Courtney Meadows’ Reservation Assistant.  Then, when Courtney made the very difficult decision to take on a new position at a different company at the end of the summer, Shelia stepped up in a huge way!  She didn’t skip a beat and filled some very big shoes, helping us finish out the season strong.  She also has been vital in assisting with the implementation of our new reservations system.

Below is a Q & A to help you get to know Shelia better:

Q:  What is your history of working at Capon
A:  Looking back I guess it was a rite of passage to work at Capon because my grandmother and mother both were waitresses when they were younger as well as many aunts and cousins have worked here over the years. I began working as a waitress when I was a freshman in high school.  At that time the “old-timers,” Cookie, Juanita, Stella, and Shirley showed us the ropes in the dining room.  We worked such long days that everyone at Capon became your family.  My last summer working at Capon, I switched to night shift because I was doing an internship for college during the day at Lost River State Park.  Many years later when my children began working at Capon, I drove them to and from work.  I remember sitting in the parking lot waiting on Saturday nights for them and listening to the songs of the bonfire and reminiscing about the days I worked as a waitress.  In the summer of 2018, Alicia contacted me to see if I would be interested in working in the spa and that started me on the path to return.  I worked one summer in the spa and then began working in the main office last summer in reservations.

Q:  What do you love most about Capon?
A:  The thing I love most about Capon is the “family.”  The Capon family is not just the generations of Austin’s but the generations of a community of workers and guests that gather every season to enjoy the spirit of Capon.  My first summer working here meant so much to me because I was often assigned to wait on Porter’s family table and he shared memories of my grandmother who worked here when she was younger.  Porter’s stories were special because I never knew my grandmother because she passed away when my mother was four-years old so memories of her are few and far between.  One of my favorite sayings is “Collect Memories, not Things”  and that’s what happens here, memories that last generations!

Q:  What motivates/inspires you about your work at Capon?
A:  My motivation for a career change was to have my “chill” job, my “happy place” to come do my job and just enjoy.  And as I have always believed that everything happens for a reason, I went from just being an assistant to being the reservations manager all in one summer with just a few months of training.  So now I find myself extremely motivated to the implementation of the new reservation system that will eliminate not only the manual process to the current system but make scheduling and checking in and out a smoother process for guests and front office staff alike.

Q:  What is your favorite spot at Capon?
A:  I pondered over this question more than any other before deciding that my first instinct was right.  My favorite spot is the entrance, the beautiful stone pillars with blooming flowers followed by the sound of water flowing from the pond brings a sense of peace when I pass through every day.  It allows you to take a breath and step back in time where children play and families enjoy each others’ company.   And each day as I leave I can put the days’ work behind me and go home to enjoy time with my family, knowing that the next time I pass through the entrance I will feel that same sense of peace.

Q:  What are three fun facts people may not know about you?
A:   (1) I taught high school business for 25 years and was a cheer coach at the middle and high school levels. (2) I am a cousin to two other managers at Capon, Gary Spaid and Kayla Quarles. (3) I am a crazy cat lady.
