South Mountain Chalet Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 11-13) with Hot Tub

The Whitetail Lodge is a year round vacation spot, located just one mile from the entrance to the Snowshoe Ski Resort, which is one of the premier slopes on the East Coast. There are 750 acres of National Forest across the road and one can freely roam on the old logging trails and explore the unspoiled mountain setting. The Cass Railroad is only five miles away, a historic railroad town replete with running trains, an old general store, and many original homes. The Green Bank Radio Observatory has the world’s largest moveable telescope / radio dish, is only minutes away, and is open to the public. Other area offerings are the Greenbrier Trail for hikers and mountain bikers, the Raven Golf Club course (ranked in the top twenty in by the Golf Week Magazine), the Greenbrier River for fishing and rafting, and miles and miles of open roads for motorcycle rides and scenic viewing. After a day spent enjoying the colors of the fall foliage, or vacationing hard while enjoying more physical activities, escape back to the tranquility of the Whitetail; have a drink while you cookout on the deck, followed by relaxing in the bubbling hot tub under a canopy of stars…often appearing to be so close you feel that you can almost touch the Milky Way. You can then retire to the home theater (55” cable TV and surround sound) to enjoy your favorite DVD or CD, drop down to the first level to play foosball with friends and family, or find quite solitude on the back deck or another part of this spacious and well appointed home.

This lovely home is conveniently located on Route 66 in the Eagles Nest development, located between The Cass Railroad (which is approx. 5 miles to the east) and the upper Snowshoe Resort access road (one mile to the east). This luxurious 4 bedroom, 3 bath home boasts a master bedroom on every level (each with an en suite bathroom), wrap around deck on the front, a small deck on the back, and a balcony off the loft bedroom. The first floor master bedroom has a jetted tub and separate walk-in shower. The main floor has a master bedroom and a second bedroom. The upper level has a master bedroom and a loft area…all told there are beds for 11 plus a sleeper sofa, 13 in all, and plenty of room for adults and children to enjoy separate activities. There are TVs and fireplaces in the main sitting rooms, a large, rustic dining table, and a well appointed kitchen for your enjoyment.

Whether you relax in the hot tub, snuggle in front of a fireplace, or stargaze from a deck, we are sure you will have a grand experience.

The driveway off Route 66 is packed gravel; however, four wheel drive is highly recommended (if not a necessity) during the winter months and chains are recommended for REALLY heavy snowstorms. Remember, we live in the mountains!!

Keywords: Private mountain retreat near Snowshoe Ski Resort. A year round vacation spot offering hiking, biking on the Greenbriar River Trail, fishing, golf at the Raven Golf Club (one of the truly great golf courses in America, designed by Gary Player), and hunting (in the National Forest directly across the road). The Greenbank Radio Observatory and the Cass Historic Scenic Railroad are nearby. Whitewater rafting is available (March & April) or you can just sit in the hot tub or on the wrap around porch and stargaze in the peace and quiet of the mountains.

About The Owner

Whitetail Lodge WV is privately owned by two couples who love the beauty and seclusion of the mountains. We built this 'cabin' with comfort and accessibility in mind...and both have been accomplished! Come see for yourself and experience a few days high in the mountains of West Virginia.

Why The Owner chose West Virginia

We chose this location because it is easily accessible, has 750 acres of National Forest across the street, the newest entrance to Snowshoe Resort is one mile away, and yet it is very permanently occupied house within a mile! Other nearby attractions are Cass Rail Road and the Greenbank Radio Observatory.

What makes this chalet unique

The privacy, stargazing and quietness offered are unbelievable after enjoying a day of fun activities.

Everything we imagined!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a fantastic time with our family and friends at whitetail lodge! Three awesome days of skiing and snowboarding, that ended with lots of hot tubbing and cooking up great food in the kitchen that was perfectly equipped. We couldn't have asked for more and we hope to visit again!!

Great House, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time at Whitetail Lodge. The house was large enough to accommodate our large family. We loved the theater room and the fact that you could close the french doors and it contained the noise so the babies could take their naps peacefully. The house is only one mile from Snowshoe- and Snowshoe has SO much to do in the summer! Our kids had a blast. It was also a short drive to go down to Marlinton and rent kayaks and kayak on the Greenbrier. Cass Railroad is also just a few miles away. The hot tub worked perfectly and was a hit. The kitchen was equipped with everything we needed. Everyone in our group commented on how comfortable the beds were also. We will definitely return!

Great Time

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at this house near Snowshoe ski resort. House is really big with multiple tv rooms, foosball table and hot tub. Had no problem sleeping 9 there. House is a short drive to the ski resort. It snowed quite a bit before we got there so we had to park at the bottom of the driveway and walk up to the house. Not a problem for us but might be for someone who needs help. There is no cell phone service or internet at the house. Just a phone that you will need a phone card to call long distance. Kind of nice to get away but something you should be aware of going in.

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was a wonderful base for our family reunion and skiing trip. Great location close to Snowshoe. Room for young parents with a baby in the first level, the great grandmother was comfortable on the main level for dinners and visiting. The tvs were wonderful for football playoff games. We had a wonderful time. It's a beautiful house.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late on a snowy night with no problems thanks to a great lighted sign in front of this secluded lodge. In less than 10 minutes, we were out the door and in the Snowshoe general parking lot. The house was well-equipped with anything we needed during our ski vacation, including a Crock Pot that is perfect for having a hot pot of soup ready after a long day skiing. We also took a quick drive five miles down to the road to the quaint Cass Railroad town, and are looking forward to trying the Greenbrier River Trail on a future trip. The property owners called to check in and were beyond hospitable and helpful during our stay. A great place far enough away from it all to relax but close enough to enjoy!
