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.

This house was just what we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This house was beautiful. It is secluded and has enough space for your whole party. If in snowshoe I would definitely like to stay here again! If you come in the winter time you WILL need 4 wheel drive.

Owner's Response: We're delighted you liked The Perfect Escape! We furnished it to be a sanctuary where our family and guests could get away from the hustle and bustle and recharge, while enjoying the Wild and Wonderful mountains of WV. The resort's name underscores the need for winter 4WD:)

Great property and quick communication from the owners

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the property is gorgeous and we were lucky enough to have fresh snow on the ground to greet us. There is a large wrap around porch that we made frequent use of and a hot tub located close to the front entrance (which was also a big plus). The house is nice, the beds are comfortable (and plenty), and the kitchen is large enough to have three to four people comfortably cooking at the same time.

We would certainly stay here again, but I'd recommend taking the warning about needing four wheel drive seriously. We did fine with various 4x4/AWD vehicles, but access would certainly be a problem with a 2WD with snow or mud on the ground.

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great vacation and enjoyed our home! Golfing, rafting and fishing is great in the summer and you can leave the 4WD at home. Thank you!

AWESOME stay for ski weekend!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this home for a holiday ski weekend with several other couples and we had an ABSOLUTE blast! The home is gorgeous and well equipped, and within a 5-10 minute drive to Snowshoe mountain for skiing. Already planning our trip for next winter! Just be sure you have 4WD during the winter months!

A Wonderful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from The Perfect Escape yesterday, and wow- it was, indeed, The Perfect Escape. In total we had 9 people, just looking to have a relaxing weekend in the mountains of West Viriginia. The Perfect Escape fit what we were looking for. With 9 people, only 3 of us went skiing, so the house had enough space for others to play cards, watch a movie, read a book, or take a walk around. There were plenty of cooking utensils for us to have a family meal on Friday night at the dinner table. It's locted at the bottom of snowshoe, and just a 7 mile drive up to the top of the mountain - perfect location to escape the traffic and congestion of the weekend on the mountain, but not so far away to slip up for dinner and drinks at the restaurants, or visit the shops. The owners are very responsive and very very nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be booking the house again next year, if not sooner. HIghly recommend!

Family weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this fantastic place. Plenty of room for the entire family and just a great place in the woods. We loved big dinning room and the hot tub. Definitely pay attention to part about needing 4 wheel drive when there is snow. We would and will come back here again.

Beautiful large cabin in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Perfect Escape during Christmas break. The cabin was very spacious giving our large group enough room with its three levels. Jody is very nice and responds to emails quickly. The location of the cabin is very close to the snowshoe resort which we visited frequently. Unfortunately the weather was too warm for snow so we were unable to ski. We did find other things to do during our stay including golfing and hiking. A few negatives were that the wifi at the cabin was very spotty and didn't work most of the time. There is no cell or gps service and the cabin is hard to find in the dark if your not familiar with the area. Overall we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely return to the Perfect Escape.
