Cranberry Mountain Lodge

Hillsboro, WV

The Cranberry Mountain Lodge is one of the most unique lodging experiences in the U.S. Located at 4,000 feet elevation on top of Cranberry Mountain, the lodge adjoins nearly one million acres of national forest. The views off the deck are spectacular, exceeding 40 miles. You can hike, bike or ski right out the front door to a vast trail system. The lodge is very isolated, with the nearest neighbor being 4 miles away.

When you rent the lodge, you rent the entire seven-bedroom facility, so you get the privacy you deserve. Rates are based on the number of guests and length of stay. The Cranberry Mountain Lodge is a bird-watcher's and nature-lover's paradise. The lodge adjoins the Cranberry Black Bear Sanctuary, which is one of the largest black bear sanctuaries east of the Mississippi.
