"The leadership at Pray Construction Company meets at Cheat twice a year.This "Cheat" environment really helps us focus on the big picture..how we can best serve our customer's needs now and in the future. It's been so helpful that we have returned time after time. This gives us a sense of history and continuity and makes it easier to get into the appropriate mindset right from the beginning. I recommend the Cheat Mountain Club for any business retreat."

"I just wanted to send you a note of thanks for the hospitality extended to us over the weekend. As always the staff was attentive, but not intrusive, and the food was superb. You have done an excellent job of making the lodge, although it has large open spaces, feel cozy. It is one of the best "perks" of my job to be able to spend a couple of days at your place."

I want to express my appreciation and compliments to the entire staff at Cheat Mountain Club. Our entire group, from young children, teens and adults, had a wonderful time thanks in no small part to the friendly and helpful efforts of Carolyn, Gracie, Greta, Leslie and Jason. The meals were, as usual, all fabulously delicious, complete and offered something for everyone's taste. The facilities show care and attention to preserving the natural ambiance of the lodge within the beautiful mountain setting. We never lacked for activities or equipment to enjoy this wonderful place. We will certainly be sharing our memories with our friends for sometime.

Looking forward to returning for our next semiannual visit."

"Dear Jason, Carolyn, Gracie, Leslie and Greta,
As we come to the end of our third vacation here at Cheat Mountain Club, I can only say that Cheat Mountain Club only gets better and better. We love the fact that we rise in the morning to the sounds of the river and the smells of huge country breakfasts, we love the fact that there is no TV, phone or other distraction from the beauty that CMC offers.

Carolyn, Gracie, Leslie and Greta have made us feel like we are part of the Cheat Mountain family and their hospitality has been greatly appreciated. 

The kids, ranging in age from five to twelve, all found plenty to do to make it a great vacation. You should be proud of the fact that you, the staff, make CMC all that it is. The natural surroundings only serve to enhance the atmosphere. We will return for more great meals, great company and great outdoor adventures here at CMC. Thank you for making it a great time for all."

With sincere thanks,

-- John, Tanya, Ashley, Abby, and Allie Wallace

"Cheat Mountain Club is one of the most unique experiences I have ever had. The lodge is an excellent place to get away from it all in very comfortable, relaxed surroundings. The staff at CMC always treats me and my family like part of their own family and go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need. The fly fishing here is the best in the state and the river and surrounding mountains have to be some of the most beautiful to be found anywhere. I plan on making many more return trips to the mountain to take part in this experience to refresh myself from our modern, fast-paced world."

"Cheat Mountain Club is a pristine oasis that always brings home good thoughts. I have enjoyed Cheat Mountain Club in several capacities. It has been an ideal location for a business retreat, great atmosphere for recreation oriented small group work, fabulous weekend getaway on personal time and an unforgetable setting for a wedding weekend. I think of the great fireplace, the pristine river out the back door, the great food, and learning to cross country ski in the full moonlight. I think it has been too long since I have been to Cheat."
