Property description

Ski-in ski-out slopeside 'Schoonhoven' Log Home on Schuss Mountain's Chicken's Choice ski run. FIREPLACE. HOT TUB. FIRE PIT. Considered the nicest home in the resort!

HURRY - We book up way in advance!

SPRING & FALL SPECIAL: Receive two free nights with your paid two night stay; longer bookings will receive one night free for each paid night!

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 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 four in one bedroom, living room with futon, small second kitchen, and bath with Jacuzzi- style jetted 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.
