Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Maximum 6 guests)

NOTE: Please book Holidays as early as possible.

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.' Our lodgings at The Summit provide views to the west that are ever-changing and always spectacular. Deer frequently wander around the grounds, providing excitement and closeness to nature, plus many photo ops.

Our ski home 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.

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.

Ski season is just around the corner, and now is the perfect time to make your plans, block the dates on your calendar, and make your reservations. Holidays book up early, so make your move if you plan to be at Snowshoe during a holiday. Be aware that Snowshoe will fully book on holidays, so best rental values are booked early. Also realize that on holidays, the slopes will be crowded, and skiing more challenging, with longer lift lines. For this reason, consider a non-holiday stay, and the advantage of much lower rates during the weekdays, with our stay two, get one free special

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 (for 4 or 5 night stay)! Snowshoe is a spectacular place to be in the Summer. Cool, dry air. 360 degree ever-changing distant views and fresh air at mile-high Summit 301C. Evenings are sometimes cool enough to turn on the gas fireplace for a little extra coziness.

Pricing - Our pricing structure is based upon the assumption of full occupancy (6), and minimum stay intervals. WE DO MAKE 'SPECIAL "last minute" PRICING DEALS . 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. Use of the sofa bed is prohibited.

We have a DOOR CODE LOCK so key management 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).

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. 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 "Ridiculous" 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 satisfying skiing 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.

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.

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 Snowshoe

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!

Great location and spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Summit 301c is a top floor condo with uninterrupted views of the mountains that provides for a stunning sunset. It’s a short 5 minute walk to the village and ski lifts, but there is a long flight of medal stairs up to the village, so I recommend walking in shoes rather than ski boots. Jim was very responsive, and provided a 15% discount to ski barn, making it somewhat cheaper than the resort ski rental prices. I would definitely stay in this place again.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Great condo! We comfortably fit 6 adults in the condo for a long ski weekend. It's just a short walk up the stairs to the slopes and snowshoe village. The views off the back porch are incredible and we saw deer grazing out back every morning. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is well stocked with dishes, appliances, etc. No complaints!

Perfect location and everything you need to relax and enjoy the mountain.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with 3 adult couples and loved it. The proximity to the village is great, the shuttle service is fantastic, and the convenience of being on the mountain was wonderful. The house is neat with everything you need to cook and be comfortable hanging out. The ability to have both bathrooms available to everyone was a nice bonus. We enjoyed the sauna, the deck and the wonderful sunset views. We will definitely be back!

The best view of the mountains, stunning!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was in a great location and the shuttle comes by often if you decide not to walk to the village. There is one staircase that leads to the village but the entire family including the 10 year old climbed it with all his ski equipment with no problem. The entryway was perfect for storing all of your cold weather clothing and donning it before heading out into the cold. We did not try out the sauna but maybe next time. The kitchen had everything you need to make quick meals and with the village being so close you can go eat there or get take out if you don’t want to cook. There were 2 adults and 4 children and there was plenty of room to spread out and be comfortable. We will definitely be returning to this unit.

This was our first time to this ski resort and have skied many across the US and this was a well maintained resort with many runs for beginners. The runs were long and you spent more time skiing than standing in line for lifts. Definitely a favorite resort for us in this region.

Owner's Response: This is the kind of review that warms our hearts and makes us happy that we can share our little piece of heaven. Few people know how lovely Snowshoe also is in the summer, with lush foliage, endless hiking and outdoor options, plus the lake, accessible by the ski lifts, for all the paddling, swimming, and relaxation one can handle. And the lodging rates are a fraction of ski season rates. We hope you will return any time. Our home is your home, and the view to the west, and freshest air in the mit-Atlantic, one never tires of. Thank YOU.
