Welcome to Fair Haven Ranch Lodges

Fair Haven Ranch Facilities

We are FAIR HAVEN RANCH LODGES, a 100+ acre country lodging and recreation guest ranch located on BURKE MOUNTAIN above NORTHFORK and KEYSTONE in McDOWELL COUNTY, WEST VIRGINIA. Whatever your lodging needs – from comfortable, spacious, fully finished and equipped lodges, to RV sites, to primitive camping sites – we can accommodate individual travelers or large groups.

Whether you’ve come to ride the fantastic Hatfield—McCoy Trails on your ATV, or just want to relax in the beautiful Appalachian Mountains of Southern West Virginia, our Fair Haven Ranch facilities are an ideal choice.

Things to Do at Fair Haven Ranch

The facilities and surroundings of Fair Haven support many kinds of activities. The ranch property itself is a perfect vacation destination for individuals and families, and an ideal setting for groups to gather for a conference, retreat, or family event.

Fair Haven’s facilities are perfect for staging forays into the surrounding countryside. Bow hunting is popular in the area (hunting licenses and permissions required), and there are many ATV trails providing access to the Hatfield and McCoy trails.
