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.


*A pet can be considered on a case by case basis.

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 Snowshoe

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.

Cozy clean little cabin in a great location minutes to Snowshoe!

  • 5 of 5

Billy was very helpful and knowledgeable and accommodating . The place was easy to find and very convenient to resort. He had everything we needed at the cabin it was clean and actually had great internet- we had no cell service on our trip (Verizon) Amazing hot tub, and it was great that I could bring my pup. Thanks Billy

Nice and cozy

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 days at Billy's place. We stayed at unit number 25 (he owns two more units on the same floor). It is not a single cabin, which we thought it was.

Very cosy place. Billy was very helpful and accomodating. He even cleaned the snow on our car, which was very kind of him.

The loft (two separate corners with 2 beds) is so cute but you cannot stand fully so if you have back pain, you should take it into consideration.

Overall, it was a very nice and cute place. We had a nice time.

Owner's Response: Hi, thank you for the kind feedback. I hope your time on the slopes was enjoyable. For the record, the bedrooms are not in "corners" but are lofts separated by about 9'. They have two walls between them. The ceilings are not a 'standard' height as they are lofts. I wish you luck with your back.

Comfy, cozy, and away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic long weekend at Billy's central condo. Billy greeted us upon arrival, ready with answers to all of our questions about the area. He knows it well, so don't be afraid to ask, it will save you some anxiety, and wasted time. We came during the off season, so we had the area to ourselves, and it was as if he prepared everything especially for us...we had a freshly filled and clean hot tub just outside, that was wonderful to relax in, after long days working, and lovely drives meandering through the Monongahela Forest. He guided us to several scenic routes that we would not have found on our own. We loved it. The condo/cabin had all we needed for a relaxing getaway. We prepared well for being away from everything, by bringing lots of food with us, and had everything we needed at our fingertips for cooking-in, every day. The charcoal grill was great too! My husband is tall, so the loft bedroom was a little back bending for him, but who goes to a cabin to walk around in the bedroom? There is no cable, but there is Netflix and HBOGO, we also prepared well with lots of DVD movies ourselves. Nice break from the news! We would love to return in the future! I normally leave a note in the cabin, so a suggestion for Billy, is to have a note pad or chalk board handy for us old school noters. Other than that, all else was perfect! Thank you Billy for being a great host to us!

Owner's Response: I almost feel bad telling you this, but the national news was available via Sling TV on the menu. Even if you want to watch your local news from home your TV provider can offer you a code and it will pop up as there is no local news in this area. Had I known you were into the news I could have shown you on the menu but a break was likely welcome. Sorry. Interesting fact about Snowshoe is there is no cable provider, they left the area. Only satellite or IPTV is available here. Sling is actually Dish's base offerings. We may be swapping that to Direct TV but so far Sling seems better. With CityNet now providing super fast internet in the area streaming seems to be the best option. Just last year Frontier was delivering unsuitable service just above dial up so we are still celebrating its arrival. Glad you enjoyed your trip. It was great talking to you guys. Hope to see you in the future! Winter arrived just after you all left.

Super place, perfect for us and great meeting Billy

  • 5 of 5

we spent 2 days at Billy's place while visiting the Cass, WV area. Super, just right for us and really nice. We also had the chance to meet and chat with Billy - he mentioned lot of additional great places for us to visit while in the area. We will definitely book again next year and spend a few more days. Thanks Bill and Lisa

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.
