Stunning, like a home away from home...

This was really was like a home away from home, just on top of a mountain (and with a great view!). Expedition Station is the newest development in the Village, and it was great for us since it's located right between the Shavers Centre and the main Village Plaza.
The unit itself seemed a little bit larger than most of the comparable rooms we've stayed in at Rimfire and Highland House. The furnishings were comfortable and the beds were amazing.
If I was pressed to come up with two disappointments, they would be the windows and the cable. Because my stay was in late August, it would have been great to leave the air off and open up the windows; unfortunately, the windows have no screens, and I wasn't anxious to sleep with any mountain mosquitoes. On the other point, I was up a little late one night and turned on the television... If you've ever stayed anywhere at Snowshoe, you know the cable situation is notorious, and it hasn't gotten any better. Most of the basic channels were just static. I ended up falling asleep that night, anyway, on the ridiculously comfortable couch (which also pulls out into a bed, I believe).
All in all, an excellent place to stay in the Village. Definitely on par with The Seneca, and arguably even nicer than Allegheny Springs if you're happy to do your swimming over at Split Rock Pools. The owner was great about handling the last minute reservation quickly, and I really will plan on staying here again on my next visit to the Mountain, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a truly comfortable, modern place to stay in the Village.
