Recent Snowshoe reviews

  • Family Ski Trip

    "After reading all the great reviews about this condo we had high expectations and this place didn't disappoint. Tastefully decorated and spacious enough for 6 adults not to mention the fantastic location. We drove up from Florida and met our friends there from Chicago and had an awesome week. The staff there was very professional and helpful. It was also obvious that the staff thought very highly of the owners. We had a great week there and would highly recommend this condo."

  • A great condo!

    "We recently enjoyed our stay at Rimfire. The location of the complex (in the Village) is perfect. The condo was clean and quiet. We did have a small issue with the keys which was resolved quickly and efficiently. We also got snowed in and had to stay an extra night--Henry could not have been easier to work with. Will definitely rent from Henry again!"

  • Well-appointed, clean and cozy

    "Our family of five (including our 4-legged furry one) had a great time! Easy access to mountain but quiet and relaxing at same time. Thoroughly enjoyed being able to cook all our meals with every possible cooking item provided. Owner was super hospitable and checked in during stay. The jacuzzi next door was an extra amenity that really added to stay. Condo wonderfully equipped with everything needed to make you feel at home. And the awesome price doesn't hurt either!"

  • Excellent

    "My wife, four children and I had a great trip. It was our first time to snowshoe and we loved it. The condo was extremely clean and it was as advertised. The kitchen had all necessary utensils, including a crock pot. There were also coffee filters for the coffee maker. I would recommend bringing bottled water for the coffee maker, as we didn't care for the tap water. Also bring all necessary spices for cooking. There was one general store on the mountain that had basic grocery supplies including beer. The slopes were great and our 2 year old enjoyed the day care. We were so fortunate that the weather was excellent during our 3 days skiing. Looking forward to return again!"

Aside from terrific options for snowy activities, Snowshoe also offers a variety of cultural attractions to enjoy during a romantic trip or fun family vacation.

Revel in an afternoon of pampering and you're sure to leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
