Why Larry & Jody Thomas chose Snowshoe

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!

Not at all worth the additional charge for holiday rates

  • 2 of 5

House was nice but was left dirty when we arrived. There were oyster shells and trash all over the deck. We called several times before our stay to confirm a few things and no one ever called us back. The hot tub had a brown ring around the water line so it was unusable. One of the bunk beds was unusable because the top frame was detached from the bottom frame so the kids had to double up. Did we have fun skiing? Yes. But the house was not worth the money we paid and would not recommend renting this house to anyone based on the condition we found it upon arrival.

Owner's Response: We want to give our guests a seamless and enjoyable stay every time. Despite our best efforts, unexpected things can occur. It’s very disheartening to hear about trash on the deck. I’ll never forget the time we came to enjoy a ski weekend with our family only to find some of our dishes had been used for target practice on the deck by a group of guests. We have no idea when it happened or who was responsible, because it was only revealed after a snow melt. While that was an extreme case, it’s not unusual to find a beer can or two somewhere after the snow has melted. Our cleaning team assured us our home and hot tub had been cleaned. The bunk bed was in need of repair, which was quickly done after checkout. I agree it would have been better if the cleaners had noticed it, but it was easily fixed and could have been addressed had it been reported during your stay. All guests have my cell phone number, my personal email and the local maintenance crew’s phone number. I’m not a property manager and I cannot always take calls while I’m at work. But with no messages left on my phone or email, and none with our maintenance company, I was unaware and unable resolve these items and improve your experience. It’s unfortunate and I’m sorry.

Wonderful Perfect Escape

  • 5 of 5

My company outing was to go and ride the train in Cass WV. We picked the perfect escape because of a beautiful house, amenities and convenient to Cass. We had plenty of space, there were 11 of us and mostly everything we needed. The house was clean and had everything the write said it would. Could have used a few more towels but it worked.We are from Columbus, OH and we could not get the OSU football game on and some of our group were disappointed . C'est la vie! haha. I recommend this house highly to anyone who is going to this area. It is very quiet , peaceful and roomy.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Gerry! We’re glad you enjoyed your visit. Hopefully, you had a nice change of fall colors too. We’ll check with our crew about the towel count - that’s a first, so good to know! - Jody & Larry
