Keywords: 2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Patio, Fireplace, Wet Bar, 1st Floor, Private Parking, ALMOST HEAVEN

Leigh and I have named our vacation condominium 'ALMOST HEAVEN'....because it is. Please come and enjoy 'ALMOST HEAVEN' just like we do.

ALMOST HEAVEN is a 1st floor 2 bedroom/2 bath vacation condominium and is located across the parking lot from the Soaring Eagle lift in the Snowcrest building. Next door, in the Soaring Eagle Building (see map below), is the only 5 star restaurant (and our favorite) at Snowshoe. The nicest take out shop (gourmet by the way), is next in the same building. In the Top of the World building (see map below) is everything you need to begin your vacation; ticket sales desk, ski shop/ski rental, resort information desk etc. Hoots Bar and Grill is in this building as well. If you wish to tour the resort, the “Free Shuttle” stops at the Snowcrest door and in front of the Soaring Eagle Lift every 15 minutes.

ALMOST HEAVEN'S 2 bedroom layout will sleep 6 adults comfortably, or 4 adults plus 2-4 children. The master bedroom has a queen sized bed with an en suite enhanced bath including a hair dryer and 1 X 5 wall mounted mirror. The 2nd bath is identically equipped. The 2nd bedroom has a queen size bed. We have a wet bar, fireplace, patio and fully equipped Kitchen for you to enjoy.

ALMOST HEAVEN is located on the first floor, and the balcony offers a picturesque view(?) of the WV mountains to the north. ALMOST HEAVEN opens to a large atrium courtyard. The building has indoor hot tubs, game room, fireplace, lounge, numerous sitting areas, and laundry facilities. The parking lot is private, open only to owners and their guests.

The building looks fantastic! This is a quiet building with on site security that will afford you the vacation you deserve. If you want to stay connected, there is complimentary high-speed wireless internet access and a phone for incoming and local phone calls. With a calling card, you can also place outgoing calls. AT&T is the only cell service available. There is a cell phone available by reservation.

After the best day of skiing east of the Mississippi, return to ALMOST HEAVEN and cuddle up in front of the wood burning fireplace (free firewood). If you’re not done yet, ride the “Free Shuttle” to the Village which has a great selection of restaurants and entertainment. If you have children, take the family to the Big Top and enjoy a variety of activities from Rock Climbing to watching a movie. If you prefer you, can prepare dinner in our gourmet equipped modern kitchen, and watch a DVD or movie on the cable TV. Another option is to walk to the Market Place next door, which offers gourmet meals to bring back to ALMOST HEAVEN.

Renting ALMOST HEAVEN is an easy process that can be handled entirely over the internet. We accept PayPal or credit cards (we never need to have your credit card number - you enter it on a secure payment website). There is no mailing of keys, the door has an electronic lock. Once your vacation begins, you have access to an on-site owner's representative to assist you or address any questions that might arise.

Truly a slice of ALMOST HEAVEN in the West Virginia Mountains. The best year round resort in the east.

*FREE LOCAL AND INCOMING CALLS. OUTGOING LONG DISTANCE LANDLINE CALLS REQUIRE A CREDIT CARD.

My name is Allen Walker, Jr and my wife is Leigh. We are a young retired couple living in Salem, Va. Snowshoe is about 2 hrs, 45min from Salem and we enjoy the resort atmosphere. The restaurants and shops are a lot of fun, not to mention the skiing, fly fishing, golf in the warmer months and all sorts of other outdoor activities. Please come visit Snowshoe any time of the year and stay with us.

Allen R Walker purchased this condo in 2009

This building, Snowcrest, has no commercial activity. It is strictly residential. This, together with excellent building management and security, make it the ideal vacation condominium. All of the facilities for winter sports are next door in the Soaring Eagle building. This means we have all of the peace and quiet of Snowcrest with the convenience of the facilities at Soaring Eagle. The 'Free Shuttle' stops at the door every 15 mins. It's perfect!

Great Stay

  • 5 of 5
We come to snowshoe each year and have stayed at many lodging options through the years. I found your rental to be very clean, well maintained, and spacious for a 2 bedroom. Cost was very fair and the owner was very responsive and helpful in email communication - responded in minutes when we inquired about spotty internet access. It was a perfect option for our vacation and we will definitely keep this as an option for future stays. Fit 4 of us very comfortably. Close proximity to a great restaurant (South Mountain Grill), Hoot's Bar, and Soaring Eagle lift - which is all you need for a fun trip! Kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook dinner. In summary, I highly recommend this rental. Look forward to staying in the future.

Nice Place

  • 5 of 5
Our ski trip was very nice and the accommodations of your place were great. We appreciate the opportunity to stay at Almost Heaven and will definitely consider you in the future. Unfortunately we don't get the opportunity to get away as much as we would like.

Great location and time

  • 4 of 5
Our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. It came just as advertised, well stocked with dishes, wood, and we enjoyed the hot tubs. The location is great as you are a short walk to the lift and close to the central village. My only complaint (small one at that) was the wireless was spotty at times and one of our party members had to do some online work. Otherwise a great place.

Owner's Response: I know. Unless you have AT&T cell service with a hot spot, the internet connection for the entire mountain is by satellite. It's just a bit faster than DSL, but it's there. Snowshoe is in the middle of nowhere. Thanks again, Adam, for staying with us.

Great stay over New Years 2014

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this condo was a great experience. From the first email contact to the end of the trip, Allen was very responsive and friendly. It was our first visit to Snowshoe, and Allen quickly answered our questions about the area.

The condo is exactly as described in the listing, and the photos are accurate. There were no surprises when we arrived, and the condo was clean and ready for us. The furnishings are on the older side, but in a if-it-ain't-broke-then-don't-fix-it kind of way. Given the age of the place I was amazed at how clean everything was; there were no dusty corners or graying caulking/grout in the bathrooms. This is a home that has been well-maintained for years, and it shows.

The only thing that wasn't quite what I expected was WiFi access. I wasn't expecting to stream Netflix or anything, but I assumed that I'd be able to pull email and check the web for weather forecasts. There was WiFi but the signal was very weak and went in and out. I could occasionally connect on my iPhone, but my husband's Android rarely did. My husband discovered the strongest signal in the master bath (of course he discovered it there…) and in the condo's game room. There are several WiFi hotspots throughout the resort, so it wasn't the end of the world or anything. We managed just fine.

The condo building is quiet as promised. There were plenty of people around but no one was overly rowdy. Also the building is very solidly built; we heard occasional noise from the hallway but never through the walls or from above.

Getting to the nearest lift was pretty easy. It was a little bit of a walk across the parking lot but not bad. It would help a lot if there were a walkway and sidewalk getting from the condo to the lift--you end up sharing a narrow driveway with cars and the shuttle bus. Riding the shuttle from the condo to Top of the World (nearest lift) was fine, but it didn't work in the other direction--the shuttle goes from Top of the World to the Village. The walk from Top of the World to the condo is slightly uphill with the not-great/narrow driveway. For adults it's fine, but if you have tired kids carrying skis then you're probably better off at planning your day to end at the Village/main ski area so you can ride the shuttle to Snowcrest's door.

In short, it was an excellent stay. I recommend it highly.

Owner's Response: This guest is right on. I agree with everything she has posted. Leigh and I use Almost Heaven occasionally and go to great lengths to make sure it is well maintained, well cared for and most importantly....CLEAN.
Thank you Marta. Leigh and I look forward to have you stay with us next time.

Wonderful accommodations at Snowshoe!

  • 5 of 5
Thank-you for providing wonderful accommodations while vacationing at Snowshoe Mountain. Your condo was very spacious, clean, and convenient (getting in & out; access to the shuttle bus, or getting to the Soaring Eagle lift). Our interactions with you from beginning to end were professional and timely. We would love to stay with you again in the future! All the best, the Goodin family
