Alpine Lake Resort is a quaint little getaway in the mountains of West Virginia. The lake is gorgeous, and the scenery is second to none. But the resort itself was sort of left back in the 90's!
The indoor pool was under construction so we were disappointed to find it was unavailable. The motel has about 30-40 rooms and they're nice enough, and clean. The outside of the motel looks really worn and could use some TLC. Same is true of the Lodge where you'll find reception.
We were invited to a complimentary breakfast which was actually a Keurig machine and 5 pre-packaged muffins.
From the photos, I expected to be able to stroll out of our room down to the lake to sit on the grass and relax, but the golf course claims all of the waterfront accessible from the lodge and motel! So we had to get in the car and drive around the lake to the beach area.
Tennis courts were lost somewhere back in time too, and since there were only 2 canoes and a few kayaks to rent, we never managed to get out on the water.
Instead, we enjoyed long walks around the lake, settled into a slower paced life, and enjoyed our surroundings immensely.
It would have been nicer to have more realistic expectations, but even if nothing changed, I'd return in a heartbeat! Management had a letter in each room advising of all of the facility improvements underway.
You can't beat the price, and with a fridge and micro, making our own breakfast in the room was a piece of cake.
