Purchased in September 2009, continually updated, and Ready for you! Located on the 1st floor...means a much cooler lower level summer condo vs. higher floor condos. Remember No Mountain Lodge condos have A/C. Nice furnishings, NEW memory foam mattress on sleeper sofa, and All the convenience of a Mountain Lodge condo.

We are located on the first floor near the exit to the slopes and village in the wing closest to Allegheny Springs and Split Rock Pools. Split Rocks Pools is right across the street. New Satellite TV and in room Wireless Internet access. Gated parking access right outside the building! Some of the best parking on the mountain.

Large open lobby with a stacked rock fire place is a great gathering place.


NO SMOKING in the condo. NO PETS in the condo.

Pastas Restaurant is in the lower lever of the building. Several village restaurants are available around the corner.

Mountain Lodge is a very family friendly complex. There is a video game room with about 25 games, an indoor toddler play area, a movie area which shows movies all winter on weekend nights, and quiet hours beginning at 10 PM. There are also a couple of fitness machines available on-site. (summarized below)

About Martin Banish

Hickory, NC

Martin Banish purchased this condo in 2009

Why Martin Banish chose West Virginia

We needed a larger condo (than the one bedroom we earlier purchased) with the growing family.

What makes this condo unique

Ideal location within Mountain Lodge. No worries about lugging everything to upper floors with the easy parking lot access. Perfect for families with small children. Near the side entrance which feeds out to the village and ski slope. First Floor condos are much cooler in summer than 2nd and 3rd floor units.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I wanted to reach out and let you know how much of a good time we had at Snowshoe last week and how much we enjoyed our stay at your place. It is perfect. Has all the amenities you need for a fun get away! I thought by looking at the pictures on VRBO that we had stayed at your place before but when I walked in it hit my brother and me both that we have stayed at your place twice before this last trip. Hope to be able to use your spot again. We go to Snowshoe annually!

Very nice CLEAN comfortable room

  • 4 of 5

Everything was so nice & clean. Looked like new carpet. Beds comfortable. Some condo rentals I've had seem like they have original furniture & fixing but this felt nice & new.

Only drawback was no AC but they did have ceiling fans in every room and 2 box fans.

Nice being on the first floor. Very easy owner to deal with

  • 4 of 5

Over all the unit is nice. Owner is great. Bathrooms both have showers and tubs. Kitchen could use a update but everything functions. Both beds are nice and large but could use new mattresses. Owner gave us early check-in and late check-out.

Owner's Response: I just want to make quick comment about the mattresses. I prefer a firm mattress and can attest that this mattress is still firm. It is hard to conform to every renters needs when it comes to the firmness of a mattress. I would suspect this renter does not like a firm mattress which is why he made the suggestion.

Good place on a budget

  • 3 of 5

Martin's place was clean and comfortable. However very outdated. Kitchen had no disposal, knives very dull, no sponge or soap. Stove and oven very old and tried to burn our food :( Tv in a weird spot but otherwise comfy furniture. Also be aware, pool is mentioned but not included, it is 15/person. Overall nice place on a budget

Owner's Response: This renter stayed on the last weekend that the slopes were open for the 2015/16 season so there had been many folks who had rented the past 4 months. Some issues are things that are out of my control and I do personally clean my condos top-to-bottom in both Spring and Fall (besides the housekeeping between rentals). I put dish soap under the sink, sharpen knives, touch up the paint on the walls, wash the bed linens and clean the carpets and more. I do state that the Split Rock Pools are across the street - and there is a fee...but the only way to get in for free is to rent through Snowshoe Central Reservations. The money you save renting through me will offset the cost you would pay renting from them. As for the oven, we have learned that when you cook at 4800 feet, you need to turn it down 25-50 degrees - not just for that unit but for the ones in the other condos we own as well. As regarding being outdated, I agree that it does not have granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances. You can go next door and pay double if you want that at Allegheny Springs. On the flip side, I agree that you can certainly get a nice, clean room at a reasonable price renting any of my 6 Mountain Lodge Condos. Martin

Owner good to work with, great location.

  • 5 of 5

Building is dated, but clean and well maintained. Convenience to the slopes has got to be one of the best on the mountain. Martin was great at getting back to me and helping me in any manner. I will be looking at a larger unit but would stay at 107 again if I had 4 people for the week.

Great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely be coming back to Snowshoe and will try to get this condo. The first floor location was centrally located in the building so it was easy to get everywhere. It was right next to the Village restaurants and shops. The condo was immaculate and I felt like I was home.
