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!

The Poe Cottage, previously called the Henry Cottage, the Nisbet Cottage, the Georgia Cottage, the Egerton Cottage, and the Slingluff Cottage, may have been constructed during the era of Captain William Sale, but an exact construction date is unknown. The Poe was one of several cottages rented to families for the season. Often the cottages would take on the family name of those renting it.

Against the engineer’s recommendation to tear down the building, Lou and Virginia decided to renovate and rename the cottage. The Austins named the cottage after Mountain House guests. The stone steps that lead to the Poe and the Austin paths were built in the 1960’s. In 1932, the Poe contained three rooms.

In the 1960’s, an interior renovation made four small rooms. In 1989, the maintenance crews renovated the Poe’s interior, eliminating the hallways and enlarging the four guest rooms. Outside entrances to each room and a back ramp were added for easier access. Rooms in this cottage can accommodate four to five persons and each includes a private bath, thus housing as many as 18 people total.

This smaller more intimate sized building also has porches, which are great spots to relax and listen to nature. The proximity to the Hygeia Bath House & Spa makes the Poe a popular location.

Guest Review

“My favorite is the Poe Cottage, because that’s where my grandparents most often stayed. It’s perfect for a family with lots of adults so that you can have privacy but still feel close together. On this last trip, my aunt and uncle were in their room laughing up a storm, and I knocked on the wall and said “Keep it down in there!” which caused them to erupt into more giggling. We still laugh about that a lot.” – Kristy N., Bumpass, VA
