The West Virginia foothills are about to be even closer to heaven with the upcoming arrival of Rainbow Country Resorts, a newly constructed men’s outdoor destination. Originally a 100-plus acre horse ranch, Rainbow Country Resorts will be a year-round operation nestled in the idyllic alpine valley along the Potomac.
The resort has been six years in the making. “The views here are breathtaking,” one of the resort’s principals, Dave said. “We’ve been focused on keeping the wonderful atmosphere and making the resort a place for men to come and enjoy themselves and the view.”
Rainbow Country Resorts will host tent campers and RV / travel-trailer enthusiasts, offering a variety of accommodations that include full-service RV sites, four “village” areas nestled on the property offering manicured and rustic tent sites, a bunkhouse, rental cabins, and private rooms. The resort will blend its natural cowboy and old-fashioned ambiance with modern amenities including a restaurant, large bar and entertainment facility, spacious pool and sunbathing areas, an outdoor cafe and 25,000 square foot indoor arena, and a hillside amphitheater that will host a variety of events.
A visit to the resort may include exploring over 100 acres of the beautiful West Virginia wilderness including miles of hiking and horse-riding trails. Ride your own horse or go for a ride with one of the resort’s own! Overnight cowboy trail campouts are planned for those looking to lose themselves and enjoy life along the trail for an extended time. If you’re not adventuring in nature, lounge by the pool or relax in year-round indoor wet zones that will feature a sauna, hot tub and more. Then, take some time to visit area artisan and club-sponsored stalls in the stables. Other on-site entertainment will include EDM dance parties, drag and talent shows, themed weekend events, as well as club and group-sponsored activities and structured experiences.
Getting to Rainbow Country Resorts is quick and easy thanks to its nearby access from major interstate routes. The resort is located just outside Romney, West Virginia, a simple two-and-a-half-hour drive from Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and the Washington, DC, area, and about three-and-a-half to four hours from Richmond and Philadelphia. Don’t want to drive? Kick back and take Amtrak to Cumberland, Maryland, and arrange for resort pickup, or hop on an excursion bus from Baltimore and DC. Bring your camping gear, rent a tent and gear from the resort, or select other inside accommodations.
“Rainbow Country Resort’s location can’t be beat,” Dave said. “It’s close enough to the city to not be out of the way, but it’s just the right distance to lose yourself in a new world. You come here and breathe the mountain air and see the scenic views that you just can’t anywhere else. It’s a wonderful escape.”
The perfect getaway is waiting at Rainbow Country Resorts. While you’re in the area, venture offsite for hiking, biking, climbing, canoeing, tubing, or fishing on the Potomac River. Visit local antique troves in this West Virginia’s oldest county, ride our two local world-famous scenic railways, or just doing nothing and enjoy yourself. t
