About Phyllis Burke Russell

MY SON & I IN THAILAND. We have lived in China for three years and traveled Asia, including riding elephants that had been rescued and now live in a safe haven.

What we enjoy most about our trips to our home in Snowshoe is the ability to relax and find time to be a family!!

Phyllis Burke Russell purchased this condo in 2007

Why Phyllis Burke Russell chose West Virginia

Our unit 'Believe in Magic' is located in a newly renovated building. The advantages this complex has was a big factor in the decision to purchase in Snowcrest. Not only has the building been painted and carpted inside and out but the management keeps the building spotless.

The hot tubs are huge and clean and never busy.

The ability to park easily right outside the main doors is a huge plus. The elevators are always quick to appear as the building is not over crowded.

Real wood burning fireplaces make it feel like a winter retreat should with a crackling fire.

What makes this condo unique

My profession and passion is interior design. As Director of Design for a large furniture manufacture I have renovated and completely redecorated the unit to feel comfortable, cozy but beautiful.

If you do not ski but are coming with those who do, you will find your home away from home perfect for staying home and relaxing by the fireplace!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Snowshoe many times and this place was definitely the most comfortable and cozy. The owner has also done a beautiful job decorating and extending her hospitality in many ways that are much appreciated. There was a nice restaurant just a couple of minutes away, called South Mountain Grille, that had great service and atmosphere. Phyllis was great to work with! She promptly and thoroughly answered all questions.

The perfect getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is well-maintained and superbly stocked with everything you could need! There are hot tubs in the building to soak your sore muscles after a busy day on the mountain. The owner has decorated the apartment beautifully so it really feels like a home. We will choose to vacation here again and again!

The condo was great for our family and made our first trip to Snowshoe one to remember.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Snowshoe. Phyllis was wonderful and very responsive to all our questions. We rented at Ski Barn, as suggested by Phyllis, and the equipment was great. Access to the condo was very easy. We had plenty of room for all our ski stuff. Shuttle access to the slopes and everything else was awesome. We never drove our van. It was nice to have the hot tubs after long days on the slopes. The kitchen was full of the small things that no one packs, but wish they had. We loved having the dryer in the condo, to dry our socks, gloves, etc. Since there was no Verizon service on the mountain, the wi-fi was our communication link to the world.

Overall, our stay in the condo was awesome. We hope to be back soon!

Believe in Magic Makes You Feel at Home

  • 5 of 5

I agree wholeheartedly with the prior reviews -- this condo is very inviting and exceptionally well-equipped for a family. We were a party of 6 including 9 and 13 year old who particularly loved the big fluffy towels and comfortable sheets and quilts. Kids do have to be willing to sleep on the inflatable beds (very comfortable) that were provided. We played with the games left for our use and enjoyed the DVD collection. The big couch is a hit because everyone can lounge together. Everyone walked easily to the Soaring Eagle Express lift and from there skied the entire mountain. As a non-skier, I appreciated that the shuttle bus stopped right outside the door so I could meet my husband for a Valentine's Day lunch in the village. The owner is very gracious; her recommendations for renting equipment and buying lift tickets were very helpful. I recommend speaking with the owner just to understand all of the thoughtful conveniences that she's stocked in the condo. Definitely a delightful renting experience for us. Highly recommend it.

Perfect Winter Wonderland Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed this condo in early March 2014. We had such a great time! The condo is well decorated, and it is stocked with the small things that make it feel like home. The owner is very gracious to her guests, and accomodates any reasonable needs.

This is one of the nicest units in Snowcrest. The owner is an interior designer, and it shows throughout the unit. Snowcrest is located near the Soaring Eagle lift (about a 5-10 minute walk, but you can catch the shuttle if you don't feel like walking). There is a black diamond slope at the Soaring Eagle lift, but there is also a long green trail that will

take you down to the Village area, including those slopes. If you plan your slopes right, you can just take the lifts back to Soaring Eagle at the end of your ski day without needing the shuttle! The shuttle will also take you to Silver Creek, which has night skiing and snow tubing. I prefer Snowcrest because it is located further from the Village, which means I don't have to hear all of the noise at night. This unit far exceeded any needs or expectations we had! Thank you for letting us use your beautiful place for our retreat!
