'Schuss Platz' is a traditional ski chalet with a large deck overlooking the valley. It is located a short walk from the top ski lodge parking lot on a very desirable street.There are 2 bedrooms and 1.5 baths located on the first floor with a greatroom. The cathedral ceiling greatroom has a fireplace, large dining table, bar and a kitchen. There is a large deck across the back with a view of the deer paths through clearings in the woods. Overlooking the greatroom is a large vaulted ceiling loft sleeping/play area adjacent to a bedroom and bath. The loft has sliding glass doors to a balcony at the front. This was originally designed to be a 5 bedroom house but the loft was opened up, as well as, the 2 bedrooms below were enlarged so there is alot of room in this 1800+-SqFt chalet It is tastefully decorated with some antiques co-mingled to give a homey feel. The side entrance opens into a mudroom for boots, coats and laundry. The opposite entrance opens into the greatroom. The house is on pilings with two catwalk entrances (1 with no steps!). Driveway is at street-grade with room for 3 cars.

About Dart Alsmeyer

Hi, we are Helen & Dick and family (3 generations). We puchased this lot decades ago, had a cedar shell erected and have assisted tradesman complete the interior to our liking. It has been a great place for the extended family to gather since they are spread from Philly to North Carolina and this is a good central location. We have enjoyed watching the resort grow and add amenities (especially liked the additional ski slopes and golfing). This property was recently opened up to vacation rentals and look forward to sharing our home away from home.

Dart Alsmeyer purchased this chalet in 1976

Why Dart Alsmeyer chose Shenandoah Valley

This is a superbly located chalet on the mountain near the top for views and proximity to the ski slopes. The open floorplan with the greatroom and loft above keeps everybody in close proximity and great for gatherings. There are 2 secluded and somewhat quiet bedrooms at the front of the house for those so inclined to sleep away their time here (not recommended though).

What makes this chalet unique

The gingerbread exterior makes you feel like you are at a Swiss chalet and the theme is carried throughout.

Good for the money

  • 4 of 5

House clean and plenty of dishes to accomdate 5 people. Easy to find but follow written directions not GPS. Facilities on the resort were good. To me beds were ok, plenty of extra blankets if needed.

When using dryer turn AC down low. The dryer will make the house real warm.

Wildlife abundent and good picture opportunities.

The house is older and does need work even has some safety issues. The whole house shakes when the washer spins. The grill needs replacing but does work. Wires sticking out of the wall to me is not good. (I am an electrician). Basically an old house that needs some long needed TLC

Overall for the price it is a good deal. Had a good visit but i think next time would spend a little more money for a newer place.

Great location for Massanutten Water Park

  • 4 of 5

My daughter, 2 grandsons and I stayed in this nice house while visiting the Water Park. It was only a 7 minute drive from the Water Park so we were able to eat almost all of our meals at the house which saved money. Had enough room for the 4 of us. Luckily we took a blow up mattress because the loft area was quite warm (no A/C up there) but the boys were able to sleep in the master bedroom on the floor. It was easy to unload the car with the ramp to the house and the house was well stocked. Very enjoyable visit.

A beautiful location and a great house!

  • 5 of 5

From the small mountain cricks running next to this house to the three bucks under the deck one morning the lot this home is on was beautiful and secluded even while next to other homes. The home itself is very large and our family of 4 had plenty of room to play games and cook in the kitchen as well as room spread out and have quiet time alone. The beds where comfortable and not having to bring all the sheets with us was very convenient. Thanks for sharing your wonderful vacation home! We are already considering a trip back in the future!

relaxing and also fun

  • 5 of 5

my entire family really learned the art of just relaxing and take in nature at its best.my grandchildren really enjoyed the water theme park. The house we rented was very clean and had a lot of room for everyone. The house had everything you needed plus more. The property manager was very kind and so was the owners of the property. We will return in the winter and I bet it will look great with some snow

Great place to stay for pet owners

  • 5 of 5

The property was as advertised and the best feature was that the owner allowed dogs. Not many rental homes allow pets, so it's a real find to be able to rent a decent one. Another bonus was the ample parking space on a level driveway. This fact is important since the resort doesn't allow any on street parking. Also, many homes in the mountains have extremely steep driveways. While the house may be a bit dated, it was large and functional. The bathrooms were clean and the water pressure good. There was free Wi-Fi and cable. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family who are looking for a reasonably priced vacation rental at Massanutten.

Great stay, great location!

  • 5 of 5

The house easily accommodated 3 families of 6 adults and 4 young kids. It's on a quiet street with a nice brook that runs right along it. We opened a couple of the bedroom windows at night to enjoy the relaxing brook sound. We parked 2 SUVs and a full size sedan comfortably in the designated parking area in front of the house.

Wifi and cable were nice amenities, and the best part for us was having the kitchen to cook meals. Dishes, cookware, and everything you need to cook and eat are there. Mattresses are on the firm end, but certainly acceptable. Bring your own bath towels/soap/shampoo. Just a 1-minute drive to the golf course and a 6-8 minute drive to the water park. Close to everything since the house is inside the resort.

For the price, you can't go wrong. We'd definitely stay again!
