Before the numerous franchise hotel chains came into being, Ma & Pop places like the Cheat River Lodge served the weary traveler. Preserved, when the backroads became less traveled, its tranquil riverfront setting remains.

For those who have an affinity for water, a river runs through it !

Built in the 70s, at the gateway to the Monongahela National Forest, the six room Lodge is a sportsman’s getaway. Over the years, its riverside location on the Shavers Fork of the Cheat River gained appeal with outdoor enthusiasts. For the fishermen, it’s a bonanza of a fishing spot as it is a major trout stocking location.

Today, the Lodge is attracting travelers who desire more than 4 walls. We are a vacation destination. For those opting for a room with a view, the large picture windows, and screened porches with rocking chairs are welcomed amenities. After a day’s activities, the outdoor hot tub, spacious decks, including one that cantilevers over the river, will provide additional areas to lounge.

3/5 Okay

Good location for access to highways for scenic tours .
The property was run down, but our room was comfortable. Due to the Covid, we had to bring our own pillows, blankets, other extras. Cable & internet service was on & off. Weather was beautiful, so didn’t have to stay inside. Loved the area.
