We're returning to one of the POA's favorite places: Seven Springs Mountain Resort!Guests will enjoy the newly refurbished hotel rooms complete with flat screen TVs; new wall treatments and lighting; pillow-top mattresses; duvets, bedspread, and linen packages; irons and ironing boards; high-speed internet; multimedia junction boxes; coffee makers; and work stations. All rooms are non-smoking. Located at the base of the mountain, the Main Lodge Hotel offers comfortable guest rooms and luxurious multi-room suites to accommodate you and your family.
Just as the graceful trillium is a rarity, Seven Springs' Trillium Spa is a sanctuary unlike any other. The elegantly restored mountain chalet has been completely renovated and redecorated to create the perfect place to escape the stress and commotion of everyday life. Inspired by the beauty, delicacy, and rarity of this exceptional flower, Trillium is the place to relax, unwind, and renew.
There are so many things to do at Seven Springs with your family! Ziplining, Alpine Slide, skeet shooting, bike trails, hiking trails, Alpine Tower, rock wall climbing, trampoline fun - and that's just the outdoors! The fall foliage should be at its peak during your stay, so make plans now to join us!
