West Virginia is known for mountain hiking , horseback riding, whitewater, fishing & zip lining. But did you know there’s a resort called Capon Springs and Farms that’s known for the healing properties in their spring water? Located a short 2 hour road-trip from the D.C, area, Capon Springs is a historic little gem that deserves not only all the praise it’s received over the past 90+ years, but a top spot on your travel bucket list!
Capon Springs Farms is also helping to highlight a fairly new sport called FlingGolf. Their regulation FlingGolf golf course was one of the first in the United States to be offered as one of the activities for guests toto enjoy during their stay. Â Capon Springs remains the only private resort in the entire state of West Virginia to provide this fairly unique experience to their guests. We loved our time during our recent paid partnership trip with West Virginia Tourism and Capon Springs and Farms and are looking forward to returning again later this fall to experience the activity since we ran out of time to try it this past weekend.
How to enjoy your family time at Capon Springs:
Fishing: of course I have to begin with the awesome fishing experience. Fly rods and bait are available at the Main House upon check-in. As a fly fishing enthusiast, I was happy to receive a tinkara style rod to fish the pond. Everyone in the family practiced their casting and caught a ton of fish!
Games: Do you enjoy mysteries or puzzles? The Escape Room is a game appropriate for all ages within your family.
The food: Begin your mornings with the tastiest home-cooked breakfast. Three meals per day are provided in a casual cafeteria style setting.
Looking to join a memorable evening group activity? Fireside sing-along-songs and hot dogs are complimentary for all guests staying at the resort on Saturdays. This particular event took me back to the nostalgic days of my youth while being the backdrop of new memories with my own kids. Such a wholesome and fun night for all generations within your family.
Relax: Treat yourself to a luxurious treatment at The Hygeia Spa, located on the property. Capon’s Hygeia Bath House & Spa remains committed to continuing the tradition of helping each guest relax, recoup and enjoy life. From the moment you enter the spa and you slowly breathe in the wonderful aromas, you can feel yourself begin to unwind. Whether you are new to massage and hydrotherapy or have been enjoying the benefits of these treatments for years, they welcome you to come let your stress slip away.
Escape from the hustle & bustle and nestle within the quiet and tranquility of the rustic rooms within the property. The quiet of the surrounding nature makes your stay a great one for getting one of the best night’s sleep possible.
Capon Springs had my heart with the promise of calmness and enjoyment of the outdoors. The fishing, spring soaking tub experience and the FlingGolf makes this a tradition that a lot of families will want to return to again and again.
