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 Snowshoe

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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Every year my son brings a group of friends for a week-long getaway to our place in Snowshoe. The home sleeps 6 with beds but of course, the group makes it work for many more.

I hear comments from them during and after the trip:

"Can we just stay up here all winter?"

"Please let me come back next year"

"We cooked every meal to save money had the kitchen is great"

"Love the huge sectional for everyone to pile onto"

"Having the washer/dryer in the home made a big difference to get back out for night skiing with wet day gloves"

"What are the dates for next year, we want in"

"The snow was the best"

"My favorite is the night skiing"

"Being able to walk 1 min to the slopes was awesome"

"Four hot tubs in the building!!"

It's a lovely condo with a nice view! We enjoyed being a quick drive away from everything and the kitchen was comfortably stocked with essential cookware. A very cozy atmosphere and I look forward to visiting again!

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!
