Lodging Highlight: Casatano
The Casatano is the perfect place to stay and relax after spending the day outside in the New River Gorge. Located in a quiet neighborhood in downtown Fayetteville, guests can walk to top-notch restaurants and shops.
The home is surrounded by a white picket fence, which allows children to play safely or pets to roam freely. With three bedrooms it will work perfectly for families and friends who have come to enjoy what the New River Gorge has to offer.
Casatano has been slowly and carefully renovated over the past eight years. It was built in 1896 and still carries a lot of charm and character for an older Victorian house. Many updates have been made to accommodate the modern family. The kitchen and dining room were opened as one big space, which is perfect for gathering and dining together.
The kitchen has all the appliances you will need to create delicious meals: french press, coffee grinder, double oven and stove, microwave, dishwasher, blender, pots, and pans. A washer and dryer are available for guest use as well.
When you are in need of a good night’s rest, retreat to one of the three bedrooms. The downstairs bedroom has wonderful natural light and when all the windows are open in the summer, guests will feel like they are outside enjoying the cool breeze and birds chirping in the morning. The two bedrooms upstairs are spacious and each come with their own unique style (there are window air-conditioning units in these rooms). The master bedroom offers a king-sized bed with a reading alcove. The third bedroom offers bunkbeds (perfect for kids). Another room downstairs houses a futon for one person. Linens are provided for each of these rooms.

Updated Restaurant & Retail List
We love our little slice of almost heaven and our community is what makes this place so special. Over the coming weeks and months, our favorite restaurants, shops, places to stay and places to play in our beloved town are going to see a decline in visitors. Our little town is dependent on tourism so we are especially going to take a hit. Our small businesses need us now more than ever. #Fayettevillewvstrong is a movement to support our town and community.
You can help in lots of ways: ordering food to go, shopping online, tipping well, buy a gift card, leave a positive review, or just spread the word about your favorite small business and the #fayettevillewvstrong campaign. We are an outdoorsy close-knit town and we will be utilizing our strengths. You will see more businesses utilizing outdoor spaces. Please be patient with us as we navigate new changes and try to keep each other safe.
