Why Larry & Jody Thomas chose West Virginia

We pulled up and a six-point buck was resting under the deck of this brand-new, cedar home nestled in the midst of mature trees at the end of a peaceful lane.

The Perfect Escape, Round II

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time at The Perfect Escape, and we could not have asked for anything more perfect. Larry and Jody are a pleasure to work with through the reservation process - they respond to questions quickly and provide great information for your stay.

The cabin is the quintessential mountain getaway home for a week or a long weekend- and offers plenty of room for all of your guests. We had 10 in our group this year and everyone loved how they had their own space to retire in at the end of a day on the slopes. It is a short drive up the mountain to get to Snowshoe's ameneties, but you could walk to the stores along Route 66 if you wanted to (we actually did walk to breakfast on Friday morning). The town of Slaty Fork has everything that you would need for a ski weekend - rentals, a restaurant, gas, groceries - it's the perfect pit stop on the way in to the cabin.

The Cabin is wonderful - we especially enjoyed the ping pong table, the fireplace, and the hot tub - which is a must do immediately coming off of the slopes.

The Perfect Escape is exactly that - the Perfect Escape. It is great for large groups, or a couple of families with kids. And is also perfect for Ski Weekends or golf or fly fishing weekends. It truly is Perfect!

Owner's Response: Larry and I are truly fortunate to have had the opportunity to share our wild and wonderful West Virginia home with others who enjoy all the area has to offer. While we aren't able to squeeze in "mountain time" in the winter, we're looking forward to our annual summer expedition to The Perfect Escape to get away from the heat and hustle of city life. Thank you!

Such a lovely home

  • 5 of 5

So great! A short drive from the top of the mountain. Definitely want 4 wheel drive to get to the top to ski. House is comfy and there is plenty of room for card games and such by the fireplace! Loved it!

Dirty house, old kitchen uterus and dead mice

  • 1 of 5

There we 9 of us. We found a few dead mice on the ground floor as soon as we got into house. The house was not deep cleaned for a while. Visible dust on and under furniture, mess in kitchen cabinets. The kitchen uterus were not updated for a few seasons. We had an issue with water and could not get the owners on the phone to address the issue. After numerous phone calls, voice mail and text through VRBO, the owners still did not get back with us. Their maintenance guy called us back only next day. There are two rooms on the second floor, one room on the first and two rooms in basement. The basement rooms are extrimely cold and have no windows. Parking is limited. There are only space for 3 cars to park and turn around to be able to exit to the road. Wi-fi service was breaking up all the time.

Owner's Response: It's unusual that I am not available, but that indeed was the case during this period. However, because we live six hours away and do not utilize a property management company, we do provide our maintenance contacts in our rental agreement and letter received with the keys. It's not an excuse, but it has served our guests well since 2004 when we first became HomeAway owners. Our home is well equipped. It is located on a well in the middle of the woods in a remote area of Pocahontas County, WV. We have all forms of wildlife from bear, to bobcats, to deer, mice and moths (the size of birds). Bear and mice have both attempted to enter our mountain home. We take steps to control them. We have signage reminding guests to conserve water. However, the temperatures plummeted during this guests' stay, so we can appreciate their desire to linger in the shower. We welcome repeat guests each year who enjoy the intimacy of a comfortable, owner-managed property so close, yet so far from the action at the resort.
