About Parchment Valley…Parchment Valley is the Conference Center of the West Virginia Baptist Convention. It is a beautiful retreat and recreation setting in the hills of West Virginia, with two lakes stocked for fishing, a swimming pool, a 9-hole disc golf course, walking trails, and a gym. Our lodging will include cottages with a common area with small kitchen, back porch with rocking chairs, and hotel-style guest rooms with two double beds and private bath rooms. Meals will be served in the main lodge.
