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!

Dear Capon Friends,

Earlier this week as I, Jonathan (3rd generation family member and Recreation Manager), was sitting up at Sunset Lodge overlooking the rolling WV hills, I paused to reflect on the coming summer events.  This particular time I was surrounded by three generations of my wife Betsy’s family, all enjoying a big heaping slice of Americana….. literally.  We were all gathered for the traditional outdoor Chicken BBQ , slow-cooked on poles over a coal-fired pit.  After feasting on meat that just fell off the bone, we made sure we saved room for a piece of made-from-scratch Apple Pie (yes, crust is still made with lard!) topped off with a scoop of Hershey’s vanilla ice cream.

Then the teens and adults worked off the meal with lawn games like bocce, cornhole and Frisbee, while the elementary age kids played a friendly game of softball. Watching a feisty nine year old girl hit the first home run of the evening, I relived my own turn at bat over 40 years ago.  Then after the sun set over the mountain, we headed down to the Main House porch as various age groups took their turn to be pulled by a 1950s tractor in a haywagon around the grounds by my nephew Sam Brill.  The teens and collegians have fewer participants than in years past, but several reported the walk back from the golf course in the dark was still a thrill. 

In this setting it is easy to imagine those carefree days of summer when days stretched end upon end and time stood still.  When you would make plans with your friends to run around and explore, climb, build and have great conversations about imaginary adventures.  You never wanted to get out of the pool, discovery was around the corner and at the end of the day, food tasted better and refueled you for more fun.

Though June 21st marks the first official day of summer, here at Capon Springs & Farms we experience the freedom of summer over and over again each week as generations of reunions fill their time by building on these memories.  Yeah, you may not be able to go back to your own childhood, but you can certainly recreate those memories for your kids; keeping those wonderful times alive and real for those that come after you.
