About Benedict Haid Farm

Benedict Haid Farm is a picturesque 650 acre ridge-top estate just 21 miles (35 minutes) from Charleston, West Virginia. Since 1986 it has been the favored location of hundreds of very special & unique Weddings, Family Reunions, Vacations, & Retreats. The Farm consists of the Haid House and the Black Bear Lodge.

The Haid House:
This is a large 1860’s hand-hewn log home with two full bedrooms, along with a sun room containing a full-size pull out sleeper. The living and dining rooms both have wood burning fireplaces. There are 1 & 1/2 baths. Gas heat, A/C, and modern kitchen with full sized refrigerator and separate freezer make your stay comfortable. A huge, screened-in deck with large fireplace and supplemental gas heaters, hot tub and an outside grill help you entertain and relax.

The Black Bear Lodge:
A high quality, reassembled, civil war era home located on a hilltop over-looking the Haid House contains three bedrooms and three baths, along with a modern kitchen, and a large comfortable porch with a panoramic view of the mountains and countryside. The Black Bear is for lodging only – no groups or parties here.
