About Frank and Kathy

We built our lovely home in Snowshoe in 2007. It is a perfect "get away from it all" location. We wanted our mountain retreat to feel like home for our guests and friends.

Frank and Kathy purchased this house in 2007

Why Frank and Kathy chose West Virginia

We live most of the time in a big city ~ needed to be able to reconnect and de-stress.

What makes this house unique

Very private, yet close to the resort for activities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lots of privacy ~ just what we needed to get away! Enjoyed the slopes and some of the night life of the mountain, but it was nice to get back "home" to peace and quiet. Sitting in the hot tub with snow coming down through the trees was fantastic. The home is beautifully decorated and had everything we would want. You do need 4WD

Clean, Comfortable, Spacious, An excellent getaway!

  • 5 of 5

As a whole, my group of 11 had a great time at the American Dream residence. Perfect bed configuration, huge luxurious hot tub, and plenty of space for all to lounge around the TV and gas fireplace after a long day on the slopes.

The house is beautifully furnished, with american accents throughout the home, great theme!

I will stress this, if you don't have 4WD (we all did, but those with all-season tires still got stuck), please do not risk the final 1 mile drive up to the cabin.

No service was a blessing and a curse as we soon found out that contacting each other was nearly impossible if we got separated. Wifi was not blazing fast, but it got the job done.

We had a complication with the refrigerator but Kathy was quick to remedy the situation and make everything right again!

Thank you, we hope to stay again soon!

Just as Described!

  • 5 of 5

Everything described about the property was spot-on! The mountain house was tucked away in a beautiful neighborhood about 15 minutes from Snowshoe Resort. Although we spent most of our time on the slopes we wanted a place that was a little more secluded with some privacy and the American Dream didn't disappoint. All the amenities were in great shape and worked well. We only had a party of eight but this property could comfortably accommodate up to 12. We would recommend this place for anytime of year!

Excellent home for winter vacations

  • 5 of 5

We plan an annual trip with a group of close friends to Snowshoe every year. This year was our best experience because the home and location were excellent. The homeowners were very friendly, helpful, and flexible. Definitely need 4WD to get to the house if it snows. Looking forward for next year's trip!

Very nice home, just wish we had had more snow!

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time up at Snowshoe for New Years, despite not having any snow to ski with the oddly warm weather. Cabin is very nice, with full amenities in the kitchen. Very comfortable with the 10 people we ended up having. Probably would have been a little bit cozy with any more. Definitely would need 4x4 to get there if there had been any snow or ice on the ground.

Really Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

Really nice place to spend time with the family and kids. About 30 min from the ski resort. 4x4 or tire chains ARE required. House is 10 min off road 219 on a dirt road. Owner was great and willing to help every step of the way. Had a small problem with a invasion of lady bugs but I am sure its an isolated problem.

Would recommend to every one

Owner's Response: Our home is 1.5 miles off of Rt 219 and approximately 15 minutes drive time to the resort under normal weather conditions. Lady bugs are an issue for all homes in Snowshoe ~ Our home is on a pest control bi-monthly service and our home was serviced the day our guest departed. 4 wheel drive is needed during the winter months. Thank you for staying with us!!

Snowshoe is a fabulous Four Season Resort with special activities planned year round. The area highlights golf, mountain biking, hiking, fly fishing , beautiful scenic views and of course the best snow skiing in the Southeast! With an average of 180 inches of natural snow a year, Snowshoe's 57 slopes and trails blow away the competition. You will find quaint shops and several unique restaurants on the mountain and in town. For the train buff's, Cass Railroad is only a few miles away.

American Dream is in an established neighborhood 'Slatyfork Farms', 2 miles from the entrance to the resort. 4-Wheel drive needed in Ski Season.

Ski: Best Skiing in the Southeast!!! 1,500 foot vertical drop and an annual snow fall of 180 inches! Over 57 slopes and trails ~ and West Virginia hospitality!!!
