Thanks for letting us stay in the cabin! We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the wood burning fireplace, we had it going most of the weekend. Great home, we'll be back. Thanks!
My extended family stayed at this residence from 12/23 to 12/30 and we had a wonderful week. The home is roomie enough for 10, the living room area really seats quite a few people. The beds were some of the most comfortable I've come across in renting homes through Vrbo. The location is great, really close to the village, and the shuttle service made it very convenient. The location and shuttle service allowed everyone to come and go as they pleased which was fabulous! As Alaskans, we really loved the wood burning fireplace.
The main reason for the 4 stars instead of 5 is, there were a few minor issues, they didn't dampen the vacation but made things a bit challenging. We don't usually go on vacation to cook elaborate meals, but as it was Christmas we did have a couple good meals planned for the holiday. Unfortunately, the top element on the stove was burned out so it was quite tricky to cook. I would also recommend that if you plan on doing any cooking while staying at this property, you bring along a few basic pots and pans, frying pan, big pot. While there is plenty of pans there, they are in pretty bad shape and they stick and burn food.
In fairness to the owners, I would also like to point out that we did not contact them to report any of the issues. For one reason, the land line was not working and we mostly had no cell service and two it was the holidays and as I said--these issues didn't make or break our good time. I did report all the issues after we returned and the owners responded that they would check into them immediately.
The towels are not great. There really are not enough of them if you have 10 people. I think we only had about 3 wash cloths. In the kitchen, there was nothing to wash and dry dishes with. There is a dishwasher, but there was no soap for it there so we had to wash dishes until we could get to a store. We ended up using washcloths and bath towels to accomplish this task until we got the soap.
I still highly recommend the property. We would not hesitate to rent this place again.
As advertised, most of us had no cell service. However, I might note that my niece has AT&T as her provider and she had service the whole week.
Thanks for the wonderful week!
We loved our stay here! A group of 10 of us went for MLK weekend 2016 and this fit our group perfectly. The driveway fit all 5 cars and the house had everything we needed. The beds are so comfortable, the living room space is much larger than what the picture conveys (and is so warm and cozy), there are fun games in the coffee table, wifi works great, dining room table fit everyone, the kitchen was fully stocked with all of the essentials, and you can't beat the view. You definitely need 4WD for the driveway in the winter - one friend had FWD and couldn't' make the turn, but she left her car at the turn in the driveway, which worked out fine. A huge thank you to the owners for being so helpful and responsive with questions regarding our stay - she gave us lots of good tips and information for the ski resorts. We would definitely stay here again!
This house was a great winter escape for seven adults and two dogs. Although we had below zero temperatures, we still enjoyed everything Snowshoe had to offer. The location of the house was great for hopping on and off the shuttle service. Several of us also walked to trails for snowshoeing right from the house. The house had a very comfortable and cozy feel. We made great use of the wood fireplace which provided a good heat source for the large, open living room and kitchen. The house had all the amenities we needed, including a land-line phone and wireless, which we all used because we had zero cell service. I recommend bringing food and drink items to cook and eat throughout your stay. There are very few places to buy groceries, although the restaurants on top of the mountain are great! Our favorite place was The Junction, a saloon atmosphere. Overall, we had a wonderful stay. We appreciated all the information we were provided by the owner and his family.
My wife and I were looking for a rental, one that was on the mountain and would accommodate the two of us and our two dogs. While this house is set up for larger parties, it didn't feel like we were in "too much house" for just us and the dogs. All of our criteria were met: not too busy of an area, can't see the neighbors, nice views (this might have been the best part), a good kitchen, comfortable living room / common area with a fireplace and a space for the dogs to run around and do their business. The owner provided some great recommendations in terms of where to eat, rent snowboard/ski equipment and who to see for more detailed guidance on all of the above. Additionally, he was very adamant about calling him with any questions we had. Located just a couple miles from the Snowshoe Village, we were exactly where we wanted to be: close to the village, but not right in the middle if the hustle and bustle; just a short walk from multiple trail heads for walking the dogs and exploring the woods. The bedrooms were cozy and comfy, as were the couches and lounge chair. Bathrooms were clean and up to date. It was nice to just turn off the phones, take it day by day and enjoy being secluded up on the mountain fro a week. All in all, this house left nothing to be desired and we will definitely be visiting again for both winter and summer vacations. HIghly recommend going in the middle of the week, as the rush seemed to be leaving as we arrived on Monday and arriving as we left on Friday.
Considerations: There is zero cell service for Verizon and most other carriers. There is a land line with free long distance at the house. Free wifi and satellite TV are also provided. 4-wheel drive. Long, steep, winding stairway from driveway to front door (as is the same for most all the single-family homes outside of the village). Not much of a yard. The driveway is big enough for 4-6 vehicles, though it would be tight for turning around to exit wit more than just 2-3 vehicles. Bring your own groceries…the stores there have your basics, but not everything you'd want if you're trying to do all your own cooking. Bring your own DVDs if you want to watch movies. Hit up the Depot in the Village for guidance on any and all Q's regarding what to do and how to do it - ski/snowboard/snow mobile, etc.
Charming cabin that we stayed in for a week during a huge snowstorm(>30"). Cabin was adequately furnished with all of the creature comforts and made for a pleasant and comfortable stay. David was great to work with and provided us with several recommendations on palces to eat and things to do.
Would highly recommend the cabin for a family or two couples - ample space given the upstairs lost with reading rooma nd seperate bathroom.
With the snowfall and weather, we saw lots of trucks getting stuck and highly recommend four wheel drive if you are going during the ski season.
The shuttle that takes you to the junction and to the silvercreek runs often and it is very easy to have them pick you up/drop you off. No issues with waiting or logistics here.
Would highly recommend the cabin - view is wonderful and it is set back enough that noise from the road is not an issue. A roaring fire, wonderful glass of wine and a tranquil sunset are all that is needed after a long day on the mountain.
At nearly 5000 feet, Snowshoe offers the mid-Atlantic's best skiing with over 190' of annual snowfall. The resort offers numerous activities, including snowboarding, hiking,mountain biking, and golf on a Gary Player championship course ranked #1 in the state, a lake with activities in summer and indoor/outdoor pools, multiple restaurants, shops and a spa. World-class fly-fishing, the Green Bank telescope, and Cass scenic railroad are all within 15 minutes as are thousands of acres of national and state forest. The area hosts several music, food, art, and heritage festivals throughout the year.
Our chalet is located in Snowshoe Resort, near the top of the mountain, and on the only road with private homes and personal shuttle service throughout the resort. Located on an acre of land, our home offers privacy and personal space, while retaining all of the convenient amenities of being located in a resort.
