Daily Field Trips April 30 - May 5, 2018

When you select a package with lodging, we handle the reservations for you through a special rate agreement with our partners. Lodging check-in is the day before your first field trip, and check-out is the morning after your last field trip. Additional days may be requested, but depend on availability. All lodging options are on a first-come-first-serve basis. Check-in is between 3-5pm and check-out by 10-11am. Late check-in/out details must be arranged with the provider and we'll provide contact information to you prior to the Festival.

Your choices are private deluxe cabins at Opossum Creek Retreat, Country Road, Hemlock Haven, and Adventures on the Gorge, or the hotel option at Holiday Lodge. Deluxe cabins are fully furnished log homes in secluded settings with outdoor hot tubs and modern amenities! Maps/directions are provided to registered participants a few weeks prior to the Festival. You may consider bring a non-birding friend on your retreat to share your cabin. If you want to find lodging on your own click here for the New River Gorge Visitors Bureau list from bed & breakfasts to campgrounds or click here for local AirBnB options.
