Nestled in the mountains of West Virginia, Cass Scenic Railroad State Park offers excursions that transport you back in time to relive an era when steam-driven locomotives were an essential part of everyday life. Trips to Cass are filled with rich histories of the past, unparalleled views of a vast wilderness area, and close-up encounters with the sights and sounds of original steam-driven locomotives.
The town of Cass remains relatively unchanged. The restored company houses now rented as vacation cottages, add to the charm and atmosphere of the town. From the company store and museum to the train depot, you'll find an abundance of things to do prior to your departure on the historic Cass Railroad.

Yes, it is that time of year that many travel to the beautiful Alleghany Mountains to enjoy the breath taking views of the fall foliage. This is our favorite time of the year when the mornings are cool and we start to feel the chill in the evening air. Many travel for miles to visit the Greenbrier County area and take in the colorful views of the mountains. The drive in from I-64 east and west remind us all the reason why we chose the mountains of West Virginia to call home.
