  • Nice Fall Weekend Getaway

    "Great place for watching wildlife and for your own animals. We had two dogs that really enjoyed the space. The house does have an electric fence, but it is very easy to turn off while your dogs are outside roaming around. The hot tub is a great addition and the fire pit was a nice way to spend the evening. There is one king size bed, one queen and one full. You can also get an internet connection, which is nice since I didn't have any cell service in the area. The owner also worked with us to allow a late check out. Overall great experience and I would recommend to others."

  • Highly recommend this ROOMY penthouse with creative layout

    "Our family had a fantastic SNOW holiday in this two floor penthouse condo with skylights. The owner was very quick in responding, attentive to our questions and gave helpful advice. It was clean, warm and a really neat layout that easily accommodates a DOZEN skiers (although we were a family of 5) . The condo location is tucked away in the trees a bit so you do not feel you are on top of other lodgers lending it a true mountain "get away" feel. Although not SKI in / SKI out, the shuttle bus pick up was just a stones throw away and it was a easy flat enjoyable stroll to the village, pool, market or slopes so the location was good. We have stayed in two other Snowshoe properties in the past (Mountain Top and Summit) and this Leatherbark property was by far a much more overall attractive property due to the layout, space and presentation. Thank you Dale for setting us up."

  • Great Location

    "My boyfriend and I had stayed over the Easter weekend and had the best time here. The location was perfect! We were in walking distance to everything we needed and being on slope side was definitely an advantage. The room was the perfect size. We had plenty of room for all our equipment and storage for our belongings. The owners were also very easy to contact and responded quickly to any questions i had. Easy payment options as well. I would definitely stay again and hope to next season!"

  • Clean, roomy, and affordable

    "This place was perfect for my trip to Snowshoe. The booking and transaction went smoothly. The owner was very responsive via email. Upon arrival, the condo was very clean with updated furniture and appliances. The full size washer and dryer was a very nice feature. All of the linens and towels were very good quality, and there were plenty of extra blankets and pillows. The condo is very spacious. We slept 6 adults comfortably. There was plenty of parking as well. The price and location were major factors when deciding to book this property."
