4 Bedrooms + Loft, 3 Full Baths, (Sleeps 11-13)
Whitetail Lodge WV is privately owned by two couples who love the beauty and seclusion of the mountains. We built this home with comfort, nearness to Snowshoe and with a true get-away-feeling in mind...and all have been accomplished! Come see for yourself and experience a few days high in the mountains of West Virginia.
Owner purchased this House in 2005
Why Owner chose South Mountain
We chose this location because it is easily accessible, has 750 acres of National Forest across the street, the entrance to Snowshoe Resort is one mile away, and yet it provides privacy! Other nearby attractions are Cass Rail Road and the Greenbank Radio Observatory.
What makes this House unique
Away from the crowds at the resort, stargazing and the peacefulness offered are unbelievable after enjoying a day of fun activities.

The house was very close to the mountain and fit our needs for a large party. The host was responsive and was extremely helpful.
There is less than 0 service at the house and no WiFi whatsoever. Although this is a huge inconvenience, the host did provide a phone card and land line to dial out.
The hot tub was great however it stopped working half way through the stay. The fix presented to us did not solve the issue. This was a bummer.
The house was clean with the exception of the ladybugs. For some reason the windows and lights in the upper part of the house were filled with ladybugs.
Mr. Levine, we are very disappointed with the three stars you gave us in your review. To your first point, our website clearly states that our house does not have any cell phone service or internet access. Many of our guests rent our house precisely because these services are not available, nor the associated distractions. However, we understand that you and the other guests may have viewed this as inconvenient. Additionally, our “Welcome Letter” clearly reiterates the recommendation to bring a pre-paid calling card, in order to make non-local phone calls. Regarding an issue with the hot tub, we have re-iterated to our housekeeper that she needs to check with all renters and ensure it is operating correctly and there are no problems. Please email us directly with more details, so we can preclude any re-occurrence for future guests. The electrical grid that services our house can have great current fluctuations, which can cause the circuit breaker on the hot tub to trip; a reset of the breaker often fixes the problem. As for the ladybugs, unfortunately, they are an eastern West VA phenomenon, which we can do absolutely nothing about. We spray multiple times throughout the year, but as soon as the sun warms up those top windows, out they come. We have discovered over the years that every single home and hotel in the area has this same problem. We do apologize for them, but apparently no amount of spraying has any permanent effect on them.
We hope you will stay with us in the future and look forward to the opportunity to earn a five star review!
World Cup Weekend
A Great time was had by all. Thank you
Thank you for your great review, we love to see those fives. We are thrilled that you and your guests enjoyed your stay with us, and hope that you will come back and see us.
Whitetail Lodge is great for groups/families visiting Snowshoe. It's only 10 minutes from the mountain but feels secluded and private. There's plenty of space for everyone to spread out, and the hot tub is great after a day on the slopes. Gillian was awesome and made sure we had everything we needed.
There is no internet or cell service at the house. It's nice to be offline but it can be difficult to coordinate where and when to be somewhere if your group splits up. I also suggest that you use GPS or write down directions to the house.
Overall, we had a great time and will definitely look into staying again next season.
Our 4th visit to Whitetail Lodge was another great trip!
Our group enjoyed another long weekend disconnected from the rest of the world at Whitetail Lodge. The new hot tub is fantastic!
Thanks for having us again!

Convenient Location to Snowshoe, well maintained home for a large family
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is very convenient to Snowshoe. The house is well maintained and furnished. This is a perfect place for a large family or a small group. The owners were very friendly and helpful during our stay.
A warning though (not a discouragement) - the house is on a steep hill and it can get icy in the winter. Four wheel drive is a must. In addition, there is no internet. We actually enjoyed the opportunity to disconnect from our jobs and other distractions. However if you are an internet or smartphone fiend, you will be disappointed.
We had a wonderful time!
Great stay as always! Looking forward to going back gillian is amazing and so helpful
