Beautiful property with plenty of activities even in summer.

  • 5 of 5

There were 18 of us from various cities in VA, WV, and KY. It was a fun stay for old and young with plenty of personal space. Everyone got their own room and bed and there was plenty of space for quiet and loud activities at the same time.

Wonderful slopeside chalet!

  • 5 of 5

Debra, we really enjoyed our four night stay at your chalet last month! Everything was better than we expected - clean, well-stocked, spacious, with great views. There were only six of us but could have easily slept 20 there in the upper unit. We also were able to "peek" downstairs in the lower unit we didn't rent, and it would have been terrific as well for the six of us.

Darned if it wasn't 60 degrees the whole time, record-breaking, but my sister and kids did get a decent ski in Monday before the snow succumbed to the thermometer. We had a nice time out at the New River Gorge as a replacement. Sounds like there is great snow there now. :-(

Anyway, thanks again for your graciousness and great communication. We would certainly like to do this again!
