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 Slatyfork Farm

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

Great home. Wonderful location. Comfortable beds.

The kitchen was well equipped with anything you might need. The home was nicely furnished and had a very relaxing feel. The owners were very kind in allowing an early check in to accommodate our schedule.

Great spending time in the American Dream home this past weekend! Cabin is very nicely setup with all the amenities of a.. HOME away from Home!! Highly recommend print out directions if arriving after dark. Amazing view of Western Territory on Snowshoe's Mountain, provided much need secluded atmosphere after a day on the slopes :-)

P.s. Hot tub is a... HOT feature to relax the muscles!? ;-) haha

Amazing time!

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect and everything was amazing. The wifi though is a little weak as we all just used our regular data instead. Not sure if its the house or just area doesn't offer better wifi options. As for the location, it was tough finding the house at night as the signs in the neighborhood aren't lit up. Other than that, the house was cozy and very accommodating for everyone, especially with having 3 full bathrooms.

Ramseur, NC

Great place and we had a wonderful time.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for a family get together. We had people coming from Ohio, Michigan and North Carolina. No one had more than an eight hour drive. When we arrived we had no hot water but Kathy had that taken care of within two hours. The only thing we didn't have was aa snow shovel to clean the deck off. It was really cold and snowy while we were there, so even with 4 wheel drive make sure someone in your party is used to driving in snow. All in all it was great.

Owner's Response: We’re so glad you and your family had a great time at our home! I know it was very coPD. Thank you for letting us know about the snow shovel – we definitely need to pick up another shovel! Happy new year!

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!!!
