Cozy Winter Lodging

When the temperatures begin to drop and snow starts to fall, you’ll know it’s the perfect time to plan a retreat to the Mountain State. Whether you prefer the adrenaline-charged excitement of the ski slopes or an afternoon of tranquil relaxation by a fireplace, the options are limitless in Almost Heaven.


West Virginia is home to several world-class ski resorts that each offer their own taste of Almost Heaven entertainment. So, if you’ve ever wanted to try your hand at skiing or snowboarding, these five resorts are the perfect places to begin.

Even if you’re new to outdoor winter activities, let your worries fade away. Most resorts have ski and snowboard lessons available, as well as designated terrain perfect for newbies to learn on.

But those aren’t the only activities that resorts have to offer. In the wintertime you can also ice skate, snow tube, cross-country ski or even go on a snowmobile ride.

After being in the elements all day long, warm up by grabbing a delicious meal at one of the many outstanding resort restaurants. Then find the nearest hot tub and sauna and schedule a massage or facial at a luxury spa while you’re at it.

Winter is the season to find new passions, rest and rejuvenate. What better place to do so than in Almost Heaven?

Bed and Breakfasts

Nestled within the snowcapped mountains of Almost Heaven are beautiful, historic, and charming bed and breakfasts that stand ready to welcome guests with warm southern hospitality.

A night at a bed and breakfast in West Virginia is more than just a cozy night’s sleep. It’s an entire experience. It’s your chance to encounter Appalachian hospitality with a side of a local, homemade, delicious breakfast. If you enjoy seeing must-see sites and discovering quaint towns just off the beaten path, then a B&B retreat is likely the best mountain accommodation for you.

These incredible bed and breakfasts serve as the perfect home base to explore the areas in which you’re visiting:

  • Step back in time at A Governor’s Inn. An exquisitely detailed, 19th-century Victorian mansion in the heart of Buckhannon. Breakfasts are hearty, and you’re a short walk away from restaurants, antique and gift shops, and many other attractions in the area.

  • The Historic Matewan House Bed and Breakfast, located in one of Almost Heaven’s smallest, yet most famous towns is the perfect place to get some rest and relaxation. The B&B features fun. West Virginia-themed suites, such as the “coal room,” and “almost heaven room,” for guests to choose from.
