A NEW CHOICE — Timberline just finished the newest lodging accommodations at the resort in Canaan Valley. All of the rooms are “ski in” rooms located along the Winterset trail and next to the Thunderdraft chair lift for easy access to all the skiing Timberline has to offer.
"For now, reservations and bookings can be made by calling Timberline Resort. Rooms are priced reasonably because of the economy," Scowcroft said.
The new hotel's conference space can accommodate up to 100 people.
"The conference area will be great for meetings and retreats," Kathy Saumure, marketing and sales manager, said.
Guests also have access to a fitness room equipped with treadmills, weight sets and other exercise machines.
"Guests will be able to work out at their convenience," Scowcroft said.
Timberline Resort Hotel is the first of three phases of lodging development planned by the resort. Two more are planned in the same location adjacent to the newly built facility.
Tom Blanzy, general manager, designed the hotel and supervised its construction.
The three-story hotel was built to be energy efficient. Many of the products used in construction were recycled products.
"The insulation comes from recycled newspapers and recycled paper products," Saumure said. "The insulation was blown into the structure before being sealed off. Special siding was used. The siding has an R factor. It comes from recycled products."
The hotel was equipped with energy efficient appliances.
"The microwaves, refrigerators, washers, dryers and lights are all energy efficient," Saumure said. "We really wanted to go green with this hotel and we have."
