Overview

West Virginia Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 6-8)

Great Low Rate. Free Long Distance Phone, High Speed Internet, and Linens Included! Newly Remodeled Luxury Private Westridge Road Cabin with 2 Bedrooms, (King & Queen), plus Loft with Double and Twin, plus New Sleeper Sofa in Living Room. 4 Satellite TV’s w/ 100 Channels, 2 DVR’s and 2 DVD’s.

No Lines, No Check-In. Keys are in Secure Location at Front Door. Private Parking for 3 Cars. No Need to Drive or look for parking once you’re there.

There is a dedicated shuttle for Westridge Rd. that will take you from the cabin to the village at Snowshoe (about a 2 minute ride). The shuttle is free and you can take it as often as you like. Just stand right outside the cabin on the parking pad--the shuttle runs continuously until midnight on weekdays and 1:00 am on weekends. When you are ready to go home just wait for the shuttle in front of 'The Depot' at the village. The Western Territory Slopes are just down the street from the cabin, but it’s a long walk in ski boots. There are 25 steps from the Parking Pad to the Cabin deck.

Cell phones rarely work at Snowshoe and everyone hates buying and using expensive calling cards, so we have Included Free Long Distance to anywhere in the Continental US. Just dial direct for No Charge. Also, Bring your Laptop as there is Free Wi-Fi High Speed Internet.

The cabin features Indonesian Olive hardwood floors throughout the main floor and carpet in the loft. The fully equipped kitchen features granite countertops, stainless steel appliances including full size refrigerator, full size gas cooktop and oven, microwave, small dishwasher, coffee pot, toaster, crock-pot, and stackable washer and dryer. Dining will be a pleasant experience at the 8’ long table which comfortably seats 8.

The living room features a stone fireplace with remote controlled gas logs, a 37” Flatscreen TV, and a sleeper sofa. There is also a granite top desk for your laptop. All Westerly facing windows including the kitchen/dining, living room and loft have magnificent views of the valley and amazing sunsets.

Each of the 4 TV’s have DishNet Top 100 Channels. The bedroom TV’s each have built in DVD players. The bedrooms feature log beds and dressers. The loft features a double bed and twin bed, plus a reclining leather couch.

Linens are included in the price with sheets for King, Queen, Full(2), and Twin, 10 towels and washcloths. We have left a variety of board games, cards, DVD’s, etc. for you to enjoy. There is a large deck to enjoy in good weather and this is where all smoking will be done. There are no pets and no smoking in the cabin!

Great Rate: $300/Night, $400/Night on weekends and holidays; 2 night minimum. The cabin is like new inside, cozy, and easily accommodates 8 for sleeping, but there is currently only 1 bathroom. 12% tax and $125 cleaning fee additional.

With no offense meant to the West Virginia Mountaineers or any other fine school in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia, the owners were roommates at Virginia Tech and made this purchase together 12 years after graduation. Thus it seemed fitting to be the “Hokie Haus' Cabin. However this is NOT a college Party House. It is where we bring our families for vacation and we look forward to having you as our guest! Minimum age for rental is 25.

100% refund 30 days prior to check-in; 50% refund less than 30 days prior to check-in.

About Brett Snyder

Cameron and Angie have three children, Alexander, Aiden and Adelyn. They live and sell real estate at Smith Mountain Lake, VA. Summer is the busy season, but they're able to get away in the winter and really wanted a place where the kids would remember having their family vacations.

Brett and Cameron went to the same high school and were roommates at VA TECH. They lost touch for a few years and then ran into each other in their hometown of Staunton, VA. Later, Angie introduced Brett to Kim and they were married in 2008. Brett owns South River Irrigation in Staunton,VA and Kim is a clinical director with United Healthcare.

In Feb 2007, we went to Snowshoe for vacation and decided to look at places to buy. In Feb 2008, we went again and found our cabin. The furnace had caught fire. The pipes had frozen and flooded the entire house. It was foreclosed and looking very rough! Much to the disagreement of our wives, we knew this would become 'The Hokie Haus Cabin'. We closed in the spring of 2008 and hired a contractor to gut and remodel the entire house. As the season got nearer, it became evident it wasn't going to be finished, so we ultimately had to finish the project on our own. We finally got it ready to advertise and rent on 1/7/09. We were very pleased with the rentals we got our first year in spite of getting a late start. We were also very pleased with all of our 'guests'. Everyone was very friendly to work with and took great care of the cabin. We returned 100% of our deposits.

All of our rental proceeds stay in Hokie Haus, LLC for upgrades.

In 2010, we added another partner Joe Weeks, a National Guard Recruiter in Staunton, VA and his son Brenden to the Hokie Haus Family.

Brett Snyder purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Brett Snyder chose West Virginia

We love to ski and we think this is the best skiing in the region. There's always something going on. The mountains and the weather are beautiful in the spring, summer, and fall.

What makes this cabin unique

A typical day for us at Snowshoe starts with a big breakfast at the cabin. By 9 am we are on the shuttle for a 2 minute ride to the slopes. After a long day of skiing, the kids enjoy games at the Shaver Center and/or swimming in the pool. Then we cook a gourmet dinner back at the cabin and finish our evening drinking wine around the fire, while the kids play and watch TV in the loft. The cabin is perfectly designed for 2 couples and children. We also able to stay in touch with our business's while we're away with the high speed internet and unlimited nationwide long distance phones.

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

As previous reviews noted, this was an excellent rental property. Clean, well-maintained and equipped, with nice room layout. Very "homey" feel. The recently added decks (front & back) are a nice feature with great views of the valley. Shuttle service is also good as long as you avoid the "peak demand" times ...i.e. lunch and when the lifts close during weekends. We would definitely rent this cabin again.

Wonderful ski cabin

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here with our 4 kids. Perfect set up with loft area up stairs. The shuttle is also a huge perk. Beautiful mountain views.

Wonderful family time in the mountains

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the HokieHaus for a short getaway during the holidays - we were disappointed that there was no snow, but very pleased with the cabin accommodation. Perfect place to rest, relax and unwind.

Lovely cabin with mountain views

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific long weekend away at the Hoki Haus cabin. We had originally planned a ski weekend, and when that didn't work out, ended up coming for Memorial Day weekend. The cabin was perfect. Immaculately clean, and well-stocked (fresh white towels, soap etc), which made arrival quite easy. We brought our two kids and everyone had a great time, spending hours each day mountain biking, and kayaking etc at the resort. Brett, one of the owners, couldn't have been nicer throughout the booking (and re-scheduling) process. I'm sure we will visit again, and highly recommend it for someone who would like a mountain weekend away.

WE LOVE THIS CABIN!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at this cabin all 4 trips that I have taken to Snowshoe. The owners are great and always easy to get in touch with. The shuttle picks you up right outside and you get to come back to the warm fire! We plan to stay here again next year for our annual trip!!
