i am planning a trip to wva may 17-20. the drive is about 5 hours from the house, so although a short trip, it is somewhat of a short drive to most of the state. here's the problem. i have only driven through the state and don't have a clue as to where to stop for a few days.
i am bringing along my 22 year old son and wife. whitewater rafting and sightseeing are the primary goals. obviously can't cover a lot of ground do not want to. want one place to stay for the duration.
want to stayi in a neat lodge/hotel/resort, away from the super 8, etc. crowd. greenbrier is affordable but looking for something else, more woodsy and classic, maybe unusual, with some basic amenities, although not into sharing bathroom facilities. just something unique.
definitely leaning toward the new river area, but honestly don't know why except for the fleeting familiarity.
hope this info helps. thanks for your replies.
