Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-5)

This home is geared towards families who are looking to make an affordable trip to the mountains for a ski adventure. We can help you to keep your trip affordable where rentals and food are concerned, the latter being the most difficult to manage. A full kitchen and affordable non-resort options can remove most of that pain, yet one of the 3 ski areas is only 10 minutes from our door. Note that we are not adverse to any type of group but rather we are a family of 4 and understand the needs of that group well. Being the group leader can be taxing and we hope to help you actually enjoy your trip instead of simply leading it.

The home sits directly between the two Snowshoe entrances Directly across from The Raven Golf Course! 2 Loft areas are located in the A frame vaulted ceiling(chateau style). There are two loft bedrooms and a couch. There are 2 beds with one in each of the lofts(separate bedding areas separated by a wall), and a couch with blankets on the first floor. Downstairs is a great room with a full kitchen, dining room table, living room and a separate full bath. There are two skylights. The walls are made out of six inch logs as seen in pictures,and the ceiling is knotty pine. Stairs are actual spruce beams and logs. Electric fireplace in living room.

Unit is well maintained and clean. Very rustic and cozy(downright nice)!! There is a full kitchen with pans and such for your use. It is well stocked but you may need to bring specialty or particular items. Floors are Slate, Hickory,Cedar and Carpet. The hot tub is next door. Parking is in front of the unit. No more long hikes from the parking lot! No hallways.

There is a 36' TV w/ Smart TV downstairs and a 23' Flat Screen w/ Sat TV on 2nd floor. There is an I Pod ready stereo on each floor(3.5 aux plug needed for others). Most of my renters are families and as a father I know the kids tend to hijack the TV so I split them up when needed.

This is a fairly quiet location and is very close to the slopes. It is located in very wooded area. You can literally hike for days out of the front door. Cass, Big Springs,and other desirable locations are nearby. Affordable grocery and eateries are close to home. We detail local info to help you navigate a very spread out resort at an affordable price

*Please see notes at bottom

*Please note that the property has no legal address so the pin as shown is incorrect. I know this is odd, but it is a very rural area and we have no need for mail so we have never established an address. I will provide directions to my door from either entrance of Snowshoe.

Yes, the hot tub works. No matter where you stay things can break. We are 2 hours from a parts source so regardless of a private or shared hot tub you to allow the tech to get here with the proper parts. I am amazed at how many people ask us about the hot tub. it is a great tub. Truth is is rarely breaks and the most common cause of tubs at Snowshoe being closed is waiting for it to warm up after being drained due to misuse. People add bubble bath, beer, and even cut the heat down on them.

About Billy

Frequent visitor to the Snowshoe area. I like watching my kids enjoy and learn to appreciate the mountain environment and outdoor experience. Even if it is just for a few days at a time, they never forget the time the spend there. Nothing makes you smile like seeing an 8 year old climb to the top of her first mountain.

Billy purchased this condo in 2005

Why Billy chose West Virginia

It's location is close to all of Pocahontas Counties outdoor activities, especially the biking/hiking right out the front door. Please note that the property has no legal address so the pin is incorrect. I will provide directions to my door from either entrance of Snowshoe. I am able to park directly in front of my house. But most of all the resort is within sight but I have peace and quiet. Surrounded by nature. On top of that I can cook in my own kitchen and the community is excellent. Kids can play outside and the I can walk the dog for miles.

What makes this condo unique

Excellent hot tub facilities, parking right out front, a yard, cheap restaurants, a market outside of the resort, the creek, riding my bike to the Greenbrier river trail and turning south to get coffee in Marlinton, walking my pup, privacy, friendly neighbors, minutes to skiing, affordable ski shops, and a great deal more.

snowshoe ski trip

  • 5 of 5

The place was BEAUTIFUL and so cozy and relaxing after long days on the slopes! We will be back next year and would absolutely book this cabin again. I've stayed in many home away places and Billy was by far the best host we've ever had. Very accommodating to our needs and quick to respond with emails.

Exactly as described, perfect for Snowshow Ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the host is fantastic and is extremely responsive and organized. The welcome letter/packet had all the information we needed as well as tips and suggestions for the area that we very helpful. The cabin is exactly as described and is cozy and well taken care of. We used the hot tub next door (start heating about 2 hours before you want to use it, takes a while to heat up). It is about 5 minutes to the entrance to Snowshoe. We had a great time skiing and it was nice being so close to the mountain without having to pay mountain prices. There was about 2-4 inches of snow both nights we were there, but our front wheel drive small SUV did not have any issues. I can see how it might be tough if there is a bigger storm. Overall, we absolutely suggest booking this place. Thanks Billy.

Owner's Response: First, a huge thank you to Robert & Co. for picking us and of course his kind words. On the Hot Tub, it only drops below 104 if someone cuts the heat down while using it or of it has been refilled. Refills usually occur in the early morning so the temps are back up by the time the lifts close. Unless there is an emergency this is done during low occupancy which is usually early in the week. I think it was -2 outside on this day so it would have been between 4 and 6pm before it climbed to 104. The tub is drained anywhere from 1 to 2 times weekly depending on traffic.

Cute, cozy, and quiet cabin

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable little loft is warm & inviting inside and the decor is super cute. It is in the upper middle of a log & stone cabin with 4 other rentals, 2 on top & 2 on bottom. So there tends to be a little bit of human traffic on the deck because both other units' doors open right outside of your door, but it didn't bother us any, our dog did occasionally bark at people going in & out of their units though (sorry!). The renters in the adjacent unit were clearly having a party every night (they had their main door open so you could tell from the outside) but we really couldn't hear anything from inside the cabin because the log walls were nice and solid. We also really liked that the owner provided a nice fan in the sleeping area as I find it difficult to sleep without some white noise. The loft sleeping area was definitely short for tall people and people with knee or back problems might find it difficult to crouch around in, but if you have those problems you probably won't be going to Snowshoe to ski or board anyway. It was fine for us. The bed was very comfortable though and the carpet was nice. The kitchen has all the basic utensils, be sure to pack condiments like mayo or ketchup if you are packing in your own food, the fridge is very clean & completely empty for you. Take Billy up on his recommendation for the Route 66/Y Not Shop restaurant, the food there really is amazing & a great price.

We were very grateful to have permission to bring our dog with on our trip. The area outside has nice walking areas for dogs and there are even bag dispensers at the bottom of the unit & either end of the driveway, which was a nice touch. We did not expect the weather to be so completely wet & muddy all weekend though, so were glad we had brought several "dog towels" with us to keep our dog from bringing a mess inside and that way we didn't get any of the the units' provided human towels dirty. If you are allowed to bring a dog be sure to pack several rags or "dog towels" to towel off your dog's muddy or wet feet before entering the unit, you can also lay one under the food & water bowls so as not to make a mess.

Overall it was a nice, cozy, & quiet cabin way from the hustle & bustle of Snowshoe but close enough to get you on the slopes in 15 min. We really enjoyed our stay, despite the pretty cruddy weather. We would definitely recommend it for couples like us or a family/group of 4 or less. Thanks!
