Remote Working in the GorgeOctober 28, 2020
Employers are embracing remote work options now more than ever, and the trend is likely to continue into the next year. Luckily, when working remotely, you don’t have to stay inside your own home all the time. For an inspiring change of scenery to help break up the monotony, take a workweek getaway to the New River Gorge.
Find Your Office
In the Gorge, we have an abundance of lodging options for remote working trips. Wake up refreshed and ready for the day every morning in a cozy cabin or unique vacation rental, or stay close to all the leisure activities we have to offer at a local hotel or motel. Afraid you’ll miss the comforts of your own home while away? Experience Appalachian hospitality while working from a bed-and-breakfast. Most of our lodging partners offer high-speed WiFi and all have enhanced their cleaning procedures to ensure guests’ safety. Since most of these accommodations are located in wooded, serene areas throughout the Gorge, you can fully enjoy the peaceful atmosphere as you work.
Grab A Meal
You don’t have to worry about weekly meal prep while you’re here! The New River Gorge is home to an eclectic mix of restaurants.
Start your day with an espresso beverage or tasty breakfast at any of our popular brunch spots. Then, for a quick lunch, head to Fayetteville for a specialty pizza or artistically crafted sandwich. If the weather is nice, you can even enjoy a picnic at a park! In need of an afternoon pick-me-up? Get yourself a sweet treat at one of our local coffee shops. End your day in Oak Hill at a delicious eatery, with options ranging from Asian Fusion to Mexican to West Virginia classics. Then, grab an after-work brew at a brewery!
Take A Break
Who said your trip had to only be about work? There are plenty of ways to get some fresh air and unwind here. Enjoy lightly traveled hiking trails that offer endless views of the Gorge. From the 1.2-mile Burnwood Trail located across from the Canyon Rim Visitor Center to the 3.96-mile Fayetteville Trail, the hiking options vary in difficulty and length. If you are looking for more speed, rent a mountain bike from one of our outfitters. Lastly, end your stay with a tour of some of the best shops in the New River Gorge. Grab a West Virginia-inspired souvenir at Wild Art Wonderful Things or a vintage piece at Enjoyed Again.
After months of seeing the same four walls, escape to the New River Gorge for the perfect balance of work and play. Start planning your trip now!
