We have just upgraded Mingo Lodge again. You will certainly enjoy the beautiful new granite counter tops and refrigerator that were added this summer. We can now accommodate up to 18 guests and offer additional amenities such as pool, shuffleboard, darts and a new 47' high definition TV and entertainment system. It is the perfect place for family reunions or large group outings.
We are located in Mingo, West Virginia just 4 miles from the entrance to the Snowshoe Ski Resort, just a short 17 minute drive to skiing at the top of the mountain or 7 minutes to the Raven golf course. Our house provides all the amenities to make your winter or golf vacation a memorable experience. What more could you ask for? Comfortable accommodations, great location, wonderful views, privacy, high-speed wireless Internet service, a 47' high definition TV,a pool table, shuffleboard, darts and yes that essential hot tub. You won't have to worry about getting stuck in a tacky, threadbare property- Everything is New and Clean.
Mingo Cabin is nestled in a 71 acre, wooded parcel located along Route 219. Access to the property is easy and ample parking is available. While many guests will be interested in the downhill skiing offered by Snowshoe, true outdoor types will enjoy the opportunity to explore our 71 acres. An old logging road has been upgraded to provide access to the entire property. It is well suited for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing. Hunters will enjoy pursuing their favorite game which abounds on the property.
The house which was completed in early December 2007 offers a modern, open floor plan, all new appliances and all the finishing touches one associates with quality new construction. The large master suite has a king-size bed and comfortable couch, a great place to retreat to with a book if you happen to get snowed in. It is served by two bathrooms, one containing a large soaking tub and the other by a separate stall shower. The remaining two bedrooms are fitted with queen-size beds and have convenient access to a third bathroom. Luxurious linens, thick cotton towels, essential toiletries are provided. All bedrooms have their own walk-in closets.

We arrived for a four day weekend from northern Virginia, Charlottesville and Charleston, SC. Two birthdays were celabrated on what was likely the best skiing/snowfall weekendof the season......9" plus. Lots of food and football filled the house. Everyone had a funfilled and comfortable stay in your lodge. We found you on the internet and the directions you provided were perfect.
Thank you for making oue 2012 ski vacation a special one.
Our group of 17 (two families) fit comfortably at Mingo Lodge (two on sofas). We really enjoyed the game room with pool, table-top shuffleboard, and darts. Laundry was a plus. Beds were comfortable. Easy drive to Snowshoe resort.
Mingo Lodge was great for our work ski trip! The house slept 18 people with no issue. More than enough beds and living space for all of us. The game room and hot tub were perfect for down time when we weren't skiing. Snowshoe is a short 15 to 20 minute drive away, so Mingo Lodge was great for being close to the mountain without being surrounded by people. You really get to enjoy both the benefits of having Snowshoe right there while still having peace and quiet. We got about 3 inches of snow on our last day and the property was beautiful with snow on the ground! We would definitely come back!
This roomy cabin is perfect for large families and groups. It is very private and sits in the woods where you will enjoy the extra space to hike and explore. If you like to cook, you will enjoy the spacious kitchen and the second kitchen in the recreation area. Teens will enjoy the pool, shuffleboard and darts games. This cabin is in the West Virginia mountains and only a few miles from Snowshoe Mountain Ski resort. Although we had lots of humid and rainy days, (we had hoped for lots of snow), we had a great time at our "home away" in spite of the weather. The scenic drives in the Mingo Flats area were enlightening and we enjoyed learning the history of the Mingo Indians and the history of General Lee's hard fought battles in this area. We recommend this cabin and rate it a FOUR STAR.
This roomy cabin sitting in the woods is perfect for families and large groups of up to 18. We so enjoyed the extra space to spread out during our stay. We had hoped for a White Christmas but got mostly humid weather with lots of rain. We enjoyed our hikes and seeing the wildlife around the cabin. I love to cook and so enjoyed the spacious kitchen and the extra kitchen in the game room area. The grandchildren loved the shuffleboard, pool and darts! I recommend this cabin for anyone wishing to take advantage of the activities at Snowshoe Ski resort which is just a short drive from the cabin. We enjoyed Mingo Flats scenic roads and learning the history of the area. Our stay was private and a quiet one. If you are searching for a "home away" environment, Mingo Cabin is just the place to come while in the West Virginia mountains! We gave this cabin a FOUR STAR rating and highly recommend it to all!
This large roomy cabin is perfect for large family gatherings. Room enough to spread out and play games, hike, and explore the woodsy area surrounding the cabin. If you like to cook as I do, you will enjoy the spacious kitchen on the main floor and you will also enjoy the additional kitchen in the game room area. We enjoyed the pool table, darts and shuffleboard games so much!. We had hoped for a White Christmas and although we got mostly rain due to the warm trend we had a great visit in spite of it. I recommend this cabin for large groups who wish to stay close to Snowshoe Ski resort. If you have smaller children they will love the outdoors and extra play space. Teens will enjoy the game tables at the cabin and those seeking a more intimate time will enjoy the nice hot tub which overlooks the private and secluded woods. Keep your eyes open for wildlife which we so much enjoyed seeing! This was truly a "home away" for my family! It is a FOUR STAR by our ratings!
This home was large enough to handle 16 of us....2 children and 14 adults. The children had a wonderful time in the lower level playing pool and darts. I was amazed that with everyone showering in the morning, we never ran out of hot water. The hot tub was amazing early in the morning and at night. The kitchen was well stocked and there were plenty of towels for everyone. It was a blessing to have a washer and dryer in the home. Would highly recommend! I give it five stars out of five!
