What is better than a costume party? No, really, it is hard to make a party any better than starting with costumes and dressing up. It’s like Halloween in June. But there are a few things that really made this day in one of America’s “Coolest Small Towns” even better. Start with a town full […]
Events at Oppossum Creek Retreat & New River Gorge
Bang! Like getting shot out of a cannon! (On my bucket list, by the way.) That’s how we start our season. The New River Birding and Nature Festival (April 29- May 4) is our Daytona 500. Yes, I just referenced NASCAR in the same sentence as a nature festival. We like doing it this way; […]
Yoga Retreat Returns to Opossum Creek Retreat in 2013
Yoga is not for everyone; neither is Opossum Creek Retreat. And I don’t think they should be. The local Yogis here in the New River Gorge and from Kula Yoga Studio in beautiful downtown Fayetteville are really excited about having another yoga retreat at Opossum Creek.

Here’s what we’ve learned: there are people who are all about Bridge Day, and then there are people (like Geoff) who’d rather avoid […]
You Are Leaving? So SOON?
“Honey, I am leaving!” “Again? So soon?” (with glee in his voice). “We will miss you, have fun.” Because if Momma ain’t happy, nobody’s happy! Groups fill The Meadows for lots of reasons. One of the best reasons is Boys or Girls Club Weekends. That’s our nickname for vacations where groups of gals or guys […]
“Hippo-Cricket”, or, My Florida Spring Break Adventure
By Geoff I did not listen to my own advice and paid the price. Literally. You’ve heard us talk about spending your spring break here in West Virginia. And we now have absolute proof that it really is the best of all worlds. See, I went somewhere else for MY spring break. That is correct; […]
Spring Break at Opossum Creek – Why It’s a Great Idea
Need a reason to spend your spring break in West Virginia? Not much we can say that adds to this email from one of our guests (except that we are glad they’re coming back). Read on… Hi Keith- I don’t know if you remember us or not, but we rented a cabin from you at […]
