About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms,, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Summer might be the BEST time to enjoy the West Virginia mountain top at Snowshoe! Summer, the place is cool with low humidity, and the crowds are elsewhere, although weekend events can bring significant activity to the mountain. The activities at the lake are extremely fun for all ages, and a very happening scene at a great value price point - Check out the season pass for lake activities!!

Note, my email is jazzrich1@gmail.com. Please contact me directly with your email address to facilitate communications and best rates. VRBO will block email address.

SPECIAL $629 (plus tax and sec. deposit) FOR 7 DAY SUMMER RENTAL INCLUDES CLEANING!!

Summit now has CityNet HIGH-SPEED broadband Internet service (up to 50 mbps), and FREE domestic and Canada long-distance calling. Bring your cyber-life with you, and spend a whole week this year! Catch up on your day job in the evenings.

When you just need to chill, the 55' flat screen is there for your viewing pleasure. Bring your DVDs, or even old VCR tapes, and enjoy your chill entertainment, or stream video on the strong broadband WIFI.

Snowshoe is well located for many recreational options in the region, from whitewater rafting, kayaking or paddle-boating on the Shaver's Lake, the Greenbrier Golf Classic, golfing at The Raven course, exploring the nearby Scenic Highway and Cranberry Glades, and so much more. Enjoy downhill (and uphill if you choose) mountain biking, hiking to the fire tower, fishing, fine dining, the Cass Scenic Railway, the Greenbrier Rail Trail, not to mention the best star gazing for miles, and the spectacular views and sunsets.

The sauna has a powerful heater. It heats up fast and HOT. PLEASE, FOR SAFETY, NEVER LET CHILDREN BE ALONE IN SAUNA. STEAM SCALDS. Be very careful with water on the rocks. AND NEVER USE THE HIGHEST TEMP SETTING, AS THIS COULD BE A FIRE HAZARD.

Summertime, book a full week for $629.00, or buy 4 WEEKNIGHTS and get one free, cleaning included! Snowshoe is the place to be in the Summer. Cool, dry air. Spectacular views and fresh air at mile-high Summit 301C. Evenings are sometimes cool enough to turn on the gas fireplace for a little cozy... why not?

Pricing - Our pricing structure is based upon the assumption of full occupancy (6), and minimum stay intervals. WE DO MAKE 'SPECIAL PRICING DEALS in the ski season.. We always will offer some discounting for smaller groups, and longer stays. Still, if there are just two of you, you can probably save money by choosing a location that is smaller than our 3 bedroom condo. Our place is really perfect for 6 guests, especially if there are two couples, or two pairs of people that don't mind sharing a bed. Remember: Queen bed, double bed, two twin beds in the bedrooms. If you have more than 6 guests in your party, please look for ANOTHER property. 6 adults can be comfortable, each with a bed, but if you have one or two children, and can bring air mattresses and sleeping bags for them, we will add a small additional fee. We do not want the sleeper sofa to be damaged further. It is to the point where it isn't suitable for opening.

We have a DOOR CODE LOCK so key management and handling is unnecessary!! You can book today, and arrive today!! We can return your security deposit as soon as housekeeping has given us the OK... Also, this means YOU can rent on short notice, so if the days are open on the calendar, send us an inquiry (above right side of page), AND ALSO give us a call at 304-542-8222 (Jim) or 304-550-4114 (Freda)! You may need to call to get our email address so we can communicate more with email, as VRBO/HomeAway seems to think it is best to block email.

We offer, through a partnership with Ski Barn, 10% off all equipment rentals at the Ski Barn (Rt. 219 - Slatyfork), and SnowCreek (At entrance to Silver Creek). For the best quality, and best-priced equipment rentals in the area, check out their offerings, and get the additional 10% discount with the coupon that we will forward to you after your final rental payment. See the Ski Barn link below for current mountain weather information, and more! And reserve your equipment early, if possible, to avoid disappointment, especially on holiday weekends.

If you are looking for lift ticket deals, shop online at snowshoemtn.com. Ticket prices vary by day and skier's age. You will always save money on lodging and lift tickets, and enjoy more skiing and less line waiting, if you can ski during the week. It is worth the time off of your work job. Do it. Also, look for the Snowshoe Season Pass deal in the Spring (start checking early February - they usually increase in price during the availability window, which is "short."), which gives you a payback after about 3 or 4 days on the slopes!!

Holiday dates book first and fast, so consider reserving early.. Weekday rates will offer a great savings again this year, so consider a stay when rates are low, and the lift lines won't slow you down. You can really get some tuns in during the week, so if you're a serious skier, and want a great value, the weekday booking is for you! RETURNING GUESTS IN GOOD STANDING ENJOY THE 'WELCOME BACK' ADVANTAGE OF BEST POSSIBLE PRICING AND A REDUCED SECURITY DEPOSIT.

Snowshoe Mountain Resort is the best skiing south of northern New England, and is visited regularly by vacationers from Pennsylvania to Florida, and west to Indiana, Michigan and beyond. High in Pocahontas County (the highest county east of the Mississippi) the headwaters for 8 rivers can be found. Very lush green and naturally cool in the summer, New England climate in the winter, this vacation-land is everything you'd expect when you think 'Wild and Wonderful.' The Summit Condominium complex received a major facelift in 2005-2006, including new windows, siding and decks on all units. The Summit provides views to the west that are ever-changing and always spectacular. Deer and the occasional bear wander around the grounds, providing excitement and closeness to nature, plus many photo ops.

Our place is on the top floor, south-facing end of the building. This gives additional natural sunlight, and provides a quietness and privacy enhancement. This location is perfect for the spectacular views over the valley below and across the mountains as far as the eye can see. You will see hawks at eye level from this vantage point. Deer roam frequently on the property, and you can see them close-up from the sunset deck.

As mentioned, the sleeping arrangements include a bedroom with queen bed, another with a double bed, and the third with two twin beds. Plan accordingly. The sofa bed is off-limits due to frame damage.

Sheets, towels, washcloths and basic supplies (dish cleaner, toilet paper and trash bags) are provided.

We reserve the right to add a cleaning fee to non-ski season rentals of fewer than four nights, unless confirmed as included in the rates published herein.

Again, we do offer reduced deposit and special pricing for returning guests. Remind us that you've been with us in the past.

If you've never been to Snowshoe, make this the year that you discover the East Coast's best skiing south of way up north!! Read our guest reviews, and give us a try! We'll do all we can to make your stay just right.

SUMMER IS AMAZING at Snowshoe!! Cool breezes, dry air, spectacular day and night skies, weekend activities to enhance your enjoyment, and THE BEST RATES OF THE YEAR.

SUMMER WEEKENDS: 2 NIGHTS Total (Cleaning included) $449 plus tax. 3 NIGHTS Total (Cleaning included) $529 plus tax. $629 for full weeks, cleaning included!! (all prices subject to 12% tax)

About Jim Richards

We get around, but always enjoy landing at Snowshoe, any time of year. Summer, the place is cool with low humidity, and the crowds are elsewhere, although weekend events can bring significant activity to the mountain. The activities at the lake are extremely fun for all ages, and a very happening scene at a great value price point - Check out the season pass for all lake activities.

Jim Richards purchased this condo in 1999

Why Jim Richards chose West Virginia

We love the location of The Summit, and the stunning views that are provided, while being in the central village, a healthy 5 minute walk from "everything." We especially like our end unit, top floor location in the Summit, with southern exposure, for lots of sunlight.

What makes this condo unique

The place is truly cozy. The views, all the extra windows and light, as well as the breezes in the summer. The sauna is a unique benefit. The granite kitchen makes you feel right at home, and the gas log fireplace is convenient, cozy, and so warming. The newest upgrade, a 55" flat TV, is nice too. We like the tile floors in the bathrooms, kitchen, and deck/sauna entry.. We like the original paneling that is nicely preserved in our place, and we like the convenience of a washer and dryer right there, so we can dry out wet stuff if needed, and start the next day dry. :)

Guestbook comments from the owner

Went to condo for fall foliage and were not disappointed. Saw colors change everyday and also saw the deer everyday. The views were amazing. You could even see the valley from the dining area. Fantastic location. Stairs lead right up to the village. We got a special surprise right away when we saw a gray wolf skulking in the woods below early in the morning! The baby deer shot up below our balcony while the mother sped away to get the wolf to chase her. The baby deer just stood below in shock crying. We thought we were going to see a National Geographic moment and didn't want to look. After ten minutes the baby ran away and no more wolf. We also saw two foxes come up at night. If you want views, a comfortable stay, some animal encounters and easy access to the village...this is the place!

Wonderful long weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Jim was great to work with - very flexible with our date changes and the price of the condo was the best I have found! We would definitely stay here again. The view of the sunset is unbelievable and the unit is close to the village. We had awesome conditions as well - lucked out all the way around!

Jim is very easy to deal with and condo has decent room for family vacation. You cannot beat the view from the balcony. Nice location, only steps away from the village and lifts. Enjoyed the stay.

had a good time

  • 4 of 5

We had 6 people and had a good time. The nice thing was all the hooks for all the jackets in the hallway. The place was clean. I think it could use a few little blankets for the couch and blinds in the dining room because the sun sets right in your eyes at dinner time. Other than that is was great and the view is amazing!

Owner's Response: We appreciate the good feedback. We had expensive blinds on the west window and it was quickly ruined somehow. We could put up a cheap blind, but the sun is really not a problem at dinner time most of the year. Sorry it was a bother. We will ponder.

Great weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Jim couldn't have been more helpful and responsive. The condo was clean, not oversold, and perfect for a great time at Snowshoe. The unit was warm with the ability to control bedroom separately. The sauna is an added plus for those cold -9degree nights. I would definitely stay here again!
