Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday chalet in Northface - COLPO DI FORTUNA

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Colpo di Fortuna is a beautifully decorated, exquisite home located near the foot of the Timberline Ski Resort. This architecturally designed multi-level home offers a warm and cozy atmosphere highlighted with a gourmet kitchen and circular driveway. The living room is located on the main level with beautiful furnishings which you can enjoy including a gas fireplace and flat screen TV.

Off the living room is a spacious deck with an outdoor hot tub and gas grill. There are two lofts above the main level. The first has a foosball table for your enjoyment and the second a TV with Play Station 2 and various games to keep the kids entertained. The lower level offers a ski entrance and a separate family room with a TV/DVD/VCR. WIFI ACCESS included.

This home sits within a 1-2 minute walk to the slopes, lodge, chair lift of Timberline Ski Resort and within a few minute drive to the Canaan Valley Ski Resort. Canaan Valley is the perfect place to visit in any season. Our cooler temperatures in the summer make it a perfect vacation place to get away from it all and just enjoy the beauty our majestic mountains have to offer.

Three bedrooms with a loft and two baths.

Why Suzanne Egress chose Davis

We previously owned a condo no more than 100 yards away from where our home sits. We always admired the architecture of the home and always thought how nice it would be to call it our own. When the opportunity arose we couldn't pass it up. Cannan Valley is a gorgeous area to live in as well as visit. With the low humidity and abundant snowfall it is a true joy year round!

What makes this chalet unique

Fantastic views and proximity to everything.

Perfect Getaway, with Great Charm and Character

  • 5 of 5

First, off Suzanne was amazing to deal with! She was quick to respond and very helpful about what the vicinity had to offer!

We loved the layout of the home. The breakfast nook was great, it offered a well lit area anytime of the day. The home had everything we needed and we enjoyed every amenity it offered! The location was perfect for the hiking and exploring that we planned for our extended weekend. We hope to get back sometime again this year and hope to again reserve this gem in the mountains! Thank you :)

Terrific base for nature lovers

  • 5 of 5

We had to find 3 nights' housing for a family wedding at the amazing but remote Bear Rocks Wlderness Area of DollySods WVA. 3 nights in the nearest hotel, the state park lodge...despite being beautiful, still a hotel room...did not appeal. This chalet rental appeared to be, and was, a terrific alternative. Slt lower price, 3 times the sleeping accommodations with 2 nice bathrooms, plus a wonderfully designed and outfitted kitchen and living room in a beautiful setting. Amazing.

We thoroughly enjoyed hiking and just being in this very special area of W VA. Rode the state park ski lift up mountain to then walk just downhill, ahh, on the Bald Knob Trail. Ski areas in summer are such lovely mountain meadows. Blueberries, raspberries, blackcaps, deer and nountaintop views.

But Dolly Sods...never seen the likes of it.

We want to return. To this house and the Canaan Valley in spring/summer/fall.

Must add though, this is not a rental for folks with bad knees. Its architectural delights span no less than 8 levels of the A frame. You climb a few stairs between every room. Fun, and privacy-promoting, but not for folks with mobility issues.

Wonderful Family Ski Chalet

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying that the home owner, Suzanne, was wonderful and easy to work with. That alone makes the vacation experience that much better. My family set out to find a house within walking distance of the slopes at Timberline. This chalet was perfect. We could walk down the hill and past the condos to the base of Salamander in about 60 seconds. Furthermore, we could ski down either Salamander or any combination of slopes from the top to White Out and walk down hill back to the house in the same 60 seconds. My 6 year old did not once complain about the distance and we made several trips to and from the house each day. In many cases, you couldn't park your car at the lodge and walk a shorter distance.

Inside the house you will find a charming, unique design suitable for a small to mid size group. We had 4 adults, 1 child and an infant. We were very comfortable. The kitchen is the highlight of the house. It is beautiful and very functional. Our favorite touch was the sleigh used as a pan holder from the ceiling. Both the upstairs and downstairs living areas were very comfortable and the hot tub is a perfect end to a long day of skiing. There is also a separate ski entrance that has both inside and outside ski racks. It was nice being able to store our gear out of the way of everything else.

Overall, our experience was top notch. I would certainly stay in this house again and absolutely recommend it to those looking for a great value that is nearly ski in/ski out.

Owner's Response: Todd, I really appreciate your comments. Thank you so much for the kind words. You are just as wonderful and I enjoyed speaking to you and am so happy everything worked out perfectly for your family vacation. The short walking distance to the slopes and the location of our home (not having to drive up the monster hills) is what sold us. In fact, I love sitting at the kitchen table watching vehicles try to conquer the huge Slopeside Dr. hill. We love our home and am glad you found it comfortable. The sleigh pot & pan holder is one of my favorites too. I hope i hear from you again in the future. Sincerely, Suzanne

Great Slopeside Spot

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house a couple weekends ago, and it was really a great spot to be! Although it's not ski right up to the house slopeside, we just walked over to the slope from the house, hopped on our skis and pushed down to the ski lift (which is where we are located on the mountain)...you can ski down from the trails to walk off the mountain at the same spot, so you aren't worried about getting to the house when they close the Salamander trail for night skiing. Or you can drive 30 seconds down the road to park at the lodge (it's a longer walk from the far parking lot than to walk to trail from the house).

As for the house, it has a foosball table and game (can't remember if it was playstation or xbox), so kids entertained themselves the whole time, and a very comfortable couch to relax on to watch TV or chill out and nice usable kitchen! Open stairwells with rails, though the rails have space, so i wouldn't recommend this property for toddlers who could probably fall through.

We had a great time and plan to return in the future!

Owner's Response: Hi Sandy, Thank you so much for the kind words. We love our 2nd home as much as our first and want the people staying there to have the same experience. I hope you will be back. Summer is just as beautiful as the Winter so please consider us if you want to get out of the city. Sincerely, Suzanne

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed over the Christmas holidays in 2009 and loved the location! We had a really great time and the house is convenient to the slopes. It was about a 2 minute walk! The view from the kitchen windows is amazing! We loved watching the snow fall! We enjoyed it so much, we have decided to stay in the same vacation home again this year! We are counting down the days until vacation!!
