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!

Originally called the Bath House Cottage, the modern day President’s Cottage contained parlors, retiring rooms, and other conveniences during the 19th century. When the upper floor of the building was set aside for the president of the Watson Town Board of Trustees, it became known as the President’s Cottage.

Interestingly enough, one U.S. President stayed at in President’s Cottage during his actual time of office, Franklin Pierce in 1854. In the early 1940’s, the Austin family moved their summer residence from the Austin Cottage to the President’s Cottage.

The upstairs rooms were renovated in the early 1990’s and are now available to guests. The 1st floor contains five single rooms all with one twin bed. Three have private baths, while two are designated as females only with a shared bath down the hall. The upstairs is divided into two sides with a sitting room in between. It features 2 bedrooms and 1 full shared bath on each side. It can house six to eight people comfortably and has become a favorite of many extended families that pile in and spread out over the 4 bedroom area.

These images show one of the singles with bath located on the first floor. This one is housed in the back of the building with views of the creek. The other four face the front with big windows that let in the summer breezes and soothing sounds of the lawn fountain.
