High-speed Internet completes the three-legged conference accommodations stool at Chief Logan Lodge

LOGAN, West Virginia – It’s the new three-legged stool for conference business – good food, good accommodations, and good high-speed Internet connection. 

“We’ve always had excellent room and meeting accommodations and food service, and now the third leg - Internet service - makes Chief Logan Lodge a popular destination for group bookings,” according to West Virginia State Parks Chief Sam England. A relationship with Frontier Business Edge and the state’s park system recently made high-speed Internet service a reality at the Logan County attraction. The inclusion of in-house assistance of Brennon O’Sullivan, superintendent at Stonewall Resort State Park, and the Chief Logan Lodge staff completed the technology challenge.

“Connectivity is a driving force to attract conferences to many West Virginia State Parks, and we anticipate this service will bring many more group meetings to this part of the state,” England said. 

Frontier Communications General Manager Chip VanAlsburg and Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette have worked with England, the state’s Office of Technology and state parks staff over several months to secure funding and to develop working partnerships to make this possible.

“In addition to his professional status with Frontier, Mr. Vanalsburg is a strong supporter of state parks in West Virginia,” England said, noting that VanAlsburg is president of the Stonewall State Park Foundation Board. 

England also recognizes staff members at Chief Logan Lodge for their hospitality and customer service during the upgrade. “Staff from the West Virginia Office of Technology, Teddy Thompson and Brain Dunbar, in cooperation with John Saunders of Frontier Special Services and Vanalsburg, worked tirelessly to make Internet service available at Chief Logan Lodge possible. The park system appreciates the partnership and relationships that came together to make the service a reality.” 

Chief Logan Lodge is located 1 mile off US 119 between Chapmanville and Logan. The complex features a 75-room lodge, full service dining and conference services. The lodge complex partners with Chief Logan Recreation Center, Inc., and is near Chief Logan State Park.
