Massanutten Resort house description

The Overlook at Massanutten is just around the corner from the Massanutten Ski Lodge, and one of the few homes within walking distance to the slopes. Walking or driving, you can be on the slopes in no time. As one of the closest homes to the ski slopes, you can return for hot chocolate mid-day and place your skis and boots in the screened porch. It is perfect for a family winter ski trip or to enjoy the Four Seasons Resort and Shenandoah Valley area any time of year.

Step onto one of the two balconies to overlook the Massanutten Valley through the trees that separate the house from the ski slopes. The Overlook is a spacious 5 bedroom home with open vaulted ceilings. Upstairs is a full kitchen, fireplace, screened porch, great room with family and dining area with seating for 10, master bedroom with a queen bed, bathroom, and utility room. Additional sleeping arrangements upstairs include a queen-sized sofa couch and a full-sized roll-away bed. All beds are new pillowtops.

A balcony walkway off the family room leads around the house through the screened porch onto a rear balcony, where a barbeque grill awaits evening cookouts. The family and dining rooms boast a vaulted ceiling and numerous large windows provide light and views. Two sliding doors lead outside to the balcony for more beautiful views.

Downstairs are a full bathroom and four bedrooms with: (1) a queen bed; (2) two twin beds; (3) twin bunk beds; and (4) a sleeper queen sofa. The fourth bedroom, which has a private door, can double as a downstairs family room with games and television. The washer and dryer are also located downstairs. The walkout basement leads to the second balcony, providing a great area overlook.

The Overlook is centrally located to numerous year-round amenities, including the outdoor pool, miniature golf course, ski lift chair-ride, go-cart racetrack, Mountain Greens championship golf course, and Fareways Restaurant and Lounge. Use of the pools and hot tubs currently requires a guest pass that may be purchased when accompanied by an owner, which we can arrange. Other amenities, including the new Waterpark and horseback riding at Woodstone Meadows and much more, are also available at the Massanutten Resort.

There is plenty of parking, with four parking spots in the driveway and two off-street parking spots as well. In all cases, please be respectful of the full-time residents who live in Massanutten Four Seasons Resort.

                      Car: Necessary

                      2 hour drive from Washington, DC; 15 miles from Harrisonburg

                      Other Activities: The largest indoor-outdoor waterpark on the East coast, plus over 100 activities through the resort, ranging from go-karts to miniature golf

                      Golf: Massanutten Four Seasons Resort boasts two 18-hole golf courses: Mountain Greens, a championship golf course, and Woodstone Meadows, an executive course. Newly redesigned, these courses offer a variety of golfing options with exceptional mountain views. Weather permitting, the golf courses are open year round so you can often ski and golf in the same day.

                      Ski: The Overlook is just around the corner from the ski slopes. Massanutten has 14 slopes and five ski lifts that accommodates a range of skiing abilities. There are particularly good children's lessons available through the resort. And there is a large ski tubing park near the ski hill for additional winter fun.

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: We are a family of nine, with seven kids age 16 and younger.

                      Why Massanutten Resort:
                      While on a weekend ski trip over President’s Day 2004, we fell in love with Massanutten Resort and purchased our first second home, The Retreat at Massanutten. Just a few months later we purchased The Overlook at Massanutten. We have now vacationed at Massanutten for more than ten years and used the resort for many years to get away from the hustle and bustle of Northern Virginia and Washington, DC, for winter skiing and summer outdoor fun. Now we live in Idaho but still return to Massanutten regularly as a favorite vacation spot. No other resort near Washington, DC offers as wide a variety of activities as Massanutten, and at such a great value for the family to get away together. Since 2004, we have added three additional Massanutten homes to our inventory, including The Overlook at Massanutten, and rented to more than 630 families. We hope you will enjoy The Overlook at Massanutten as much as our other guests have.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      In the summer, we purchase the 'pool pass' that allows our guests to use the owners' outdoor pool. This is a great pool with some privacy that really avoids the mass crowds that can attend some of the other indoor pools.
