Few People Know About This Abandoned Resort And Spa Located In Rural West Virginia
Not many people, except for locals, know about the grand old abandoned luxury resort that sits steps from the highway (WV-311) in the Sweet Springs Valley in Monroe County. The resort was first built in the late 1700s and consisted of a lodge built of logs. This first rendition of the resort was very popular and hosted up to 80 guests per night who traveled by horse and buggy from all points just to bathe in the warm 73-degree healing spring waters found here.
