  • Wonderful March Trip!

    "Location was perfect. The unit had everything we needed and was very clean and comfortable. Kent and Pam were very helpful in recommending things and giving directions. You pretty much can't beat the value too! Checking in and out was a breeze. Overall, no hassle, no stress- the way a vacation should be! If we come back to Snowshoe, we would definitely stay here again. Tip: Mountain Lodge has lockers you can rent for just a few bucks a night. SOOOO worth it, so you don't have to lug your wet heavy gear through the hallways to and from you unit!"

  • Would love to stay here again

    "I brought a mid-20s aged group of 10 and had a blast. This town home was very spacious and comfortable. We were here during the "Polar Vortex" on the day we were leaving and became stranded and Geri went above and beyond with her generosity to make sure we were well taken care of during our problem time. One of the main points I look for when staying in Snowshoe is being able to park my car and not have to move it again until I leave. We were a short cut walk away from Silvercreek, bus pick up just down the drive way, and still enough seclusion and privacy that we were not a bother to any neighbors. One small issue was that we could not get the outdoor hot tub above 91 degrees. Therefore other then the first time we gave it a try we were not able to use it. How helpful Geri was for us greatly outweighed the hot but issue. If my group decides on Snowshoe again next year this is absolutely where we will try to stay."

  • Close to it all and cozy

    "Us group of co-workers stayed here early in 2014. There were 5 in our party, so the sleeping arrangements worked out perfect. We had one couple (they got the big bed) then two women shared the dual twin room and the lone guy took the double. Worked out just fine. Plenty of room, and quiet in the rooms if you wanted to sneak away for a cat nap. This place, as with any place you stay has its pros and cons. We were very happy with the location, as it is seriously right across the street from the heart of the Village (shuttle service, restaurants, & lift ticket pick up are all right there! Very nice). You do have to climb/decend a lengthy staircase though (which can be difficult in ski boots) or wait approx 15-25 minutes for a shuttle pick up. We were a little bummed when we arrived as there were dirty dishes in the cabinet and no dishwasher detergent or parking passes left for us (a skillet had scrambled eggs crust all over it, like it used and put back without a bit of cleaning). However, after a phone call to the owner, we were stocked up with soap and parking passes. The decor is homey, and I would say everyone was plenty cozy (that new gas fireplace really cranks out the heat). The kitchen is nice and updated, yet the dishwasher did not clean as well as one should (maybe that was the reason the skillet was still dirty). The sauna was a nice bonus too if you want to warm up after a day on the slopes. And the view is as good as advertised. One of the best sunsets I've seen in West Virginia! Lastly, I would like to re-iterate how helpful the owners were throughout the process. They were quick to respond to emails, easy to pay, & on the ball with resupply when housekeeping dropped the ball. Additionally, Jim ended up finding an overcharge for our stay after we left and refunded the amount without us even knowing there was an overcharge. First rate all the way."

The main travel focus of Snowshoe is centered around skiing at the Snowshoe Mountain Resort, but there's much more to see and do here away from the slopes. Though the town is most well-known for its winter activities with almost 500,000 skiers visiting every year, there's plenty to do year-round.

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. Try the various local dining establishments for delicious meals and explore all that Snowshoe has to offer, no matter the season, so you can learn more about the area's history, heritage and residents.

The space seats about 250 spectators and offers performances ranging from jazz, bluegrass and folk music to musical theater and everything in between. The building, which is a century old, is on the National Register of Historic Places and can often be found filled with people enjoying the performing arts. The Opera House is also host to a plethora of community events like open jam sessions and movies nights. All performances are family-friendly and children ages 17 and under are admitted for free!

Beautiful natural scenery creates a peaceful backdrop and long fairways take advantage of the terrain. It will be a joy to move from hole to hole and you'll want to come back every day to practice your swing.

With a geyser, water slides, indoor and outdoor swimming areas as well as a sauna and hot tub, there's a place for everyone, from kids to adults. Whether you want to splash around and play or sit back and relax, you can do it at Split Rock Pools.

This tract of land is protected in order to preserve the plant and animal life that live here.

Cold Weather Things to Do

- Snowshoe Mountain Resort: When visiting Snowshoe in the winter months, it's hard to miss out on the skiing at Snowshoe Mountain, the largest winter resort in the Mid-Atlantic. It features two black diamond trails that boasts a 1,500-foot vertical drop and 60 percent pitch. Skiers and snowboarders alike can take advantage of 15 acres of terrain. Snow bunnies and those new to the sports can try Yew Line, a half-mile novice slope. For snowboarders, there are two terrain parks with a half pipe and a variety of rails. There's also plenty of space for those who prefer cross country skiing to downhill. When you need a break from the winter chill, head into the Seneca Lodge. You can also try your hand at snowmobiling, snowshoeing and tubing down six different lanes. For a romantic moment, take your sweetheart on a horse-drawn sleigh ride.

- The Big Top Amusement Park: For some serious family fun, head to the 15,000-square-foot The Big Top Amusement Park and Playground.

It's open during the winter months from November through March. You'll find live entertainment, craft sessions and movie nights here as well as Santa during the holidays and even magic shows. Children under the age of 6 are admitted for free!

- The Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon: All of those winter sports are sure to take a toll on your body. Soothe aching muscles at The Tuscan Sun Spa & Salon. Treat yourself to a relaxing massage to work out any knots and tension, treat your wind-burned skin to a facial and spruce up your digits with a manicure and pedicure. Revel in an afternoon of pampering and you're sure to leave feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
