River Rock Retreat - $22.50 per person per night!
Home-style comfort, located in the heart of the New River Gorge National Park
Come hike, bike, boat, bird, climb or just relax!
We are 1/4 mile off of US 19 on the north side of the famous New River Gorge Bridge on Lansing-Edmond Road at the intersection of Rt. 82 (Fayette Station Rd.), which winds under the bridge and continues down the gorge to cross the New River. Fayette Station Road passes many climbing spots, trail heads, springs and waterfalls, and is a popular scenic drive for those traveling by car, motorcycle or bicycles any time of year.
The River Rock is the perfect place for friends and family groups to stay ... its like having a whole house to yourselves, and at our prices, you can afford to rent the entire lodge when there's only a few of you! Of course indiviuals and smaller groups will be right at home as well -- with heat in each room, large glass doors looking over the gorge, and no kitchen to clean, its vacation paradise! We have plenty of parking and a well-equiped general store right across the street.
You will not find a more conveinent, comfortable and pleasant place to stay right in the middle of the most popular NEW RIVER activities!
Want to climb or hike? Fern Creek, Diamond Point, Nuttal and Endless Wall trails are less than a 1/4 mile away- you can walk to most of them directly from the Hostel. Want to whitewater raft? Right across the road are several rafting companies, the Tree-Tops Canopy Tour, bars, historic districts and restaurants. The National Park Visitor Center is just around the corner -a great place to start any visit.
Don't be fooled by our affordable prices....

What is a Hostel? Similar to a Bed and Breakfast, but without the breakfast. The Hostel concept is well known throughout Europe. Hostels are generally lower priced because they have simpler amenities and offer multi-use common areas, shared baths and no kitchen facilities (or very limited ones). The old Hostel way was to bring your sleeping bag, this is no longer accepted under Health Department guidelines. We are happy to provide clean sheets and pillow - you can leave your bag at home!
