Why The Owner chose West Virginia

Winterplace is central to so much great outdoor adventure. Specific to skiing…Winterplace provides the best the Southeast has to offer including night skiing and a tubing park.

The Chalet, makes it easy for guests to take full advantage of all the ski resort has to offer as well as the greater region. Providing you a comfortable, group friendly space to relax, share meals and memories with friends and family.

What makes this chalet unique

In our view the chalet’s greatest strength is its easy access. Located just of Interstate 64/77, the parking area is large and convenient, the skiing is a step off the deck, access to world-class outdoor fun is minutes away, rafting, kayaking, climbing, mountain biking in the Fayetteville & New River Gorge area. Shopping and amenities are nearby, and the ski resort lodge is a short walk right across from the Chalet.

Great location for extended family get together over the holidays. Had 18 of us and we all fit into the house well. Amenities were great and access to the slope/resort was excellent. Would stay here again - Debra was super responsive and accommodating to all our needs.

Winterplace Chalet was Awesome!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. Everyone loved the house. Plenty of space. (14) of us.. Would definitely stay here again. The deer ran right up practically to our door every morning... The only thing that went wrong was that the Wi-Fi would stop working once in awhile. But it would come back on. Overall we had a great time!!!

nice enough | reasonable value

  • 3 of 5

The place was fine. It's a ski house and has been beat up a little bit despite the owner's attempts to keep it nice ("No Ski Boots On Stairs" signs, crazy high security deposit...). The handrail on the stairs from the ground floor to the second floor was broken which was an issue for some of the older members of our group. There were some (punched?) holes in walls and doors, broken floor tiles, torn upholstery on the furniture, slow drains in the showers... but everything was basically clean and working.

Owner wasn't available when we had an issue (which turned out to be a city-wide power outage). One of her two assigned backups was very helpful (the other, not so much). Owner kindly refunded our full security deposit despite some damage we did to a very old mini-blind.

This part of WV is gorgeous and full of activities and history. We recommend the nearby National Parks and rafting the New River Gorge.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am sorry the house had wear and tear you were not happy about. We do try to keep the houses nice but you are correct that it is a challenge to address damages consistently happening from large groups. We upgrade beds, appliances and furniture each year as well as paint and do repairs constantly throughout the year. We do our best to keep the homes in good shape for our guests. Our normal damage deposit is only $100 plus the $59 insurance policy but if a guest chooses to not do the insurance I believe the system then changes the damage deposit to the same amount as the insurance coverage. This may be why you had a high deposit. We appreciate your feedback and are glad you enjoyed WV.

Perfect home for family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend at Highlander 2 with our entire family from 5 different states there together! The home was perfect for our needs! We made good memories together as we celebrated our parents' 60th anniversary and reconnected with one another. Thank you!
