Too far from Snowshoe
"This "For Sale" rental is 20+ years old, despite the image taken when it was first built. The fireplace doesn't work, and the owner said he won't invest money in a house for sale.
There is no hot tub, which is crucial for performance snow sports. There is one small bathtub in the house + 3 little showered bathrooms.
Most everything in the Kitchen is broken or falling apart. We couldn't cook unless we microwaved. The grocery store is 45 minutes away. It's a 30 minute drive [add $15 to parking at Silver Creek.]
This house is TOO FAR from the slopes, despite marketing.
The owner does not provide a lan line phone or working wi-fi password, so communications with the outside world was impossible because you can't get cell service anywhere. This would've been good to know ahead of time.
My nephew & family left very frustrated 100% because of the owner's lack of communications; we couldn't call make reservations, get the status of tubing, etc. When you're 30 minutes one way from it all, you NEED a working phone. And there's nothing but a gas station & real estate companies at the base of Snowshoe mountain.
All restaurants, food, etc. are at the top of Snowshoe - 30 minutes away. You need to take all backup gear, etc. with you; you're too far away to go back for anything you forgot due to the long drive. You're definitely away from the hustle and bustle...
There is a wonderful laundry room at the entrance for you to take off your wet gear & place it directly in the dryer, but there are no racks to safely set your ski's or snowboards. The owner wants you to leave those outside apparently, but this wasn't communicated anywhere.
There is NO communication from the owner. He never provided the wi-fi password despite my requests for it upfront. He was on vacation and unreachable during our stay. When he finally answered my email messages, he responded "Call me with any questions". Are you kidding me? And how does one make that phone call? He doesn't provide a LAN line. There is NO cell service there. So how precisely does one call the owner with questions? It's unprofessional to not answer phone calls or email messages."

"My girlfriend and I have stayed at this cabin on two separate weekends, both of which were wonderful. It is the perfect romantic getaway for us as it is ver close to DC. The property is secluded and the house has all the comforts you need (nice kitchen, Internet, tv, games, books). There is a lot of great hiking in the immediate area and Wardensville has cute shops and restaurants. We ate at the lost river brewery every night. Brian is also super helpful and will take care of you. Only thing to note - there is limit cell service so be prepared."

"We recently stayed in this unit for 9 nights and it was a wonderful experience! I would not hesitate to stay there again.
The condo was very clean with daily service and had tons of plates and silverware. Lots of stove items as well, but if you want to make something specific, I recommend bringing the tools along just in case :)
We invited my in-laws over for one of the weekends we were there, and the unit had more than enough room for the six of us and the 9 days-worth of food we brought with us. The rooms somehow managed to be spacious and have an abundance of storage, which was honestly my favorite part about this unit. One of the rooms is clearly a master bedroom, with a private full bath, while the other room is a bit smaller with a full bath attached to the hallway.
Location-wise, the condo itself is a little farther away from the ski-in/ski-out exit than other ML units, but that just meant that we didn't have to hear the CLUNK CLUNK from all the ski boots walking past our door, which was a big annoyance for us when we stayed in other units in ML. The unit is also on the first floor, and was close to one of the parking lot doors, making it really handy to get in and out for dinner etc.
Mountain Lodge itself is right at the Ballhooter lift, making it a GREAT place to start your Snowshoe skiing. The Village isn't too far away, and walking to the Village's shuttle stop (which gives you access to all of Snowshoe's locations) is easily do-able in ski boots.
The only negatives I can even think of were that one of the bedrooms shares a wall with the hallway and that can get a bit noisy if you want to sleep in, but as long as you keep your sleep schedule aligned with the quiet hours, that shouldn't be a problem. We didn't have any problems with people disrespecting the quiet hours :)"
