SPRING & FALL SPECIAL: Receive two free nights with your paid two night stay; longer bookings will receive one night free for each paid night!
DECEMBER AND MARCH SPECIAL!! SNOW GUARANTEE! SPECIAL PRICING!
Free night(s) on your next visit if Schuss Mountain is closed due to lack of snow in December or March (not likely to happen; but why take a chance with some other home when we'll guarantee your trip?). Book now to take advantage of the less-crowded early and late ski seasons, AND PAY DISCOUNTED SUMMER/SPRING/FALL RATES!
Our home is located directly on Schuss Mountain within minuets of Shanty Creek’s world class Legend golf course and the Cedar River’s Tom Weiskopf designed course. Mother Nature can be very kind and dump lots of snow on the drive and local roads. This is truly ski-in, ski-out; during the ski season 4WD is HIGHLY recommended, if not required.
Three story, luxury log home built on a private, wooded hillside located directly on Schuss Mountain within the Shanty Creek Resort; only minutes from either The Summit or Cedar River Villages. The home has four bedrooms, a huge loft, and three-and-a-half baths, easily accommodating 16-18 people. Enjoy the huge upper level master suite with 2-person Jacuzzi tub.
Both the main level (two bedrooms and 1 & 1/2 baths) and the upper level master and loft sleep 6 each. The amazing lower level with 10 foot ceilings and knotty pine walls sleeps 8 in one bedroom, living room with futon and two sleeper couches, small second kitchen, and bath with Jacuzzi tub. The separate levels make this the perfect lodging for two or three families. The open floorplan on the main level with vaulted living room, and natural wood fireplace creates a warm and comfortable space for gathering. Relax after golfing or skiing in our private six-person hot tub below the large wrap-around deck overlooking the Chicken’s Choice ski run.

Great trip, great house!
Great trip, great house!
This house is a great find! I had never experienced ski in/ski out before and now wouldn't want anything less! It was so convenient and less stressful than packing everyone AND all the equipment in the SUV each day. The house is beautifully maintained and was clean and ready for our arrival. We were already talking about a return trip before we even left. Don't change a thing!

Owner response: Thanks for the compliments. I'm glad you had a good time. I know just how you feel about the ski-in / ski-out feature or our home... when I travel with the family I'm forced into renting the same in CO, UT, etc. because once you've experienced the convenience of slopeside lodging nothing else will do! Thanks for being our guest. Rick
This is a beautiful house in a beautiful area. The house was very well stocked and comfortable. We did have some issues. Check in time was supposed to be 6 p.m. The cleaners were still there way after 6. The hottub was dirty and smelled funky. Overall, the house needed general maintenance. Ceiling fans were caked with dirt, deck was badly in need of attention as well as the deck chairs. The biggest complaint our group had was the misreprestation of the tennis & pools. You had to drive over to The Summit to use these....15 min. drive. We were not happy with this. Had we known ahead of time, we would have looked for a different place to stay for our week.

Owner response: I'm not sure who this gal Rhonda is; however, the people to whom I rented during the time she was at our home sent me an email advising me of some general maintenance items that needed attention. The tone of the email was very courteous, starting with "We are enjoying our stay in your beautiful home. I wanted to point out some items that are missing or in need of repair" and ending with "You have a beautiful home and we sure would like to come back again another time." In my opinion, that is the best way to handle small maintenance items... not putting up a review here. I'm surprised to hear that our cleaners were not done by 6pm. Jerry & Julie, the guest that actually rented our home, did not reach out to me about this. We have a 3000 square foot home and it takes every bit of the time between guests (noon to 6pm) to fully clean the home. The hot tub is an issue of maintenance - our cleaning crew cleans and disinfects the tub after every guest. However, if a guest does not add the necessary chemicals after their use or if they use the tub without showering it can get dirty very quickly (100 plus degree water does that). As to the fans being dirty - they are 20' up in the air and are cleaned as often as possible. As I live 3.5 hours from my resort home, it is very helpful when guests tell us that there is an issue so that we can we respond to it. As soon as I'm done replying to this comment I'll be calling my handyman / deep cleaner to get him out to my home with his extension ladder to clean the fans. Lastly, we're located in the Shanty Creek Resort. The Resort Amenities are available to all our guests - and are variable based on the time of year, general maintenance schedules, etc. The Summit is a part of the Shanty Creek Resort and is about 10 min from our home. The overall resort is comprised of three villages - Schuss Village, The Summit, and Cedar River. As an individual homeowner I can't control which resort amenities are open on which dates... so we strongly encourage all our guests to touch base with the resort directly prior to their trips if some particular amenities are very important to them.
Best Choice in Shanty Creek.

Location, Location, Location. You cannot beat a ski in/ski out house of any kind but this one goes above and beyond. This luxury log cabin is amazing and provides more than the comforts of home. Heated floors, modern kitchen, a great fireplace, what more could you expect? What's more is the fire pit and outdoor hot tub in the yard! Amazing house. Any premium you pay in price compared to other non slope slide rentals is easily recovered by never having to go into the ski lodge for meals, refreshments, or warm ups of any kind. Rent it, you'll never regret it.

Great Ski Home
Great Ski Home
This was the best ski home we have ever rented. As it's located directly on the ski hill the non-skiers in our group could hang out in the hot tub, on the large deck, or at the fire pit and watch the skiers schuss by on Chicken's Choice ski run. The open layout was great for our extended family group. Not the least expensive option... but certainly the BEST home we've ever rented.
