Recent West Virginia reviews

  • Great experience

    "This is the second year we've rented this cabin for a get-together of old friends. Everything about this cabin is nice -- the layout, the furnishings, the amenities. We tried several other cabins before this one and none even comes close. Thanks for everything, Steve! We'll be back."

  • Great Trip!

    "We had a group of 7, and had a great time. House has a lot going for it, most snowshoe condos have very convenient locations for accessing slopes or Village area, but are rather small. The west ridge homes have lots of space, but are not within walking distance of village. This place is large enough for big groups, and within walking distance of slopes, restaurants. definetly a hit with my friends and I, and will be on the list to return again."

  • Great Family Thanksgiving Vacation

    "For the last 6 years my Dad, brother,nephew and I have been going to Elkins, WV to hunt on a private lease we belong to. We always stayed in local hotels, which we hated because of the room and we were always stuck eating out for dinner, and this year I happened to find this awesome place a month before our trip. WHAT A TREAT! Not only were we able to enjoy home cooked meals we were also able to have the dog along and mom and my niece decided to join as well. The place was very clean and had plenty of room, beautiful scenery and everyone had a great time just being able to be under one roof. I hadn't spent that much time with my family since moving to Florida 4 years ago and it was truly a Thanksgiving to remember. Everyone wants to do it again next year and we even thought about buying our own place down there now. Even though most of our time was spent out on the property it was a week we will never forget and that alone was worth every penny! The owners were a pleasure to work with and were prompt to respond to all of our needs. Everything in the house worked flawlessly and I would definitely recommend this property to my family and friends in the future if they are looking for a true West Virginia mountain retreat."

  • Lovely condo

    "I've been going to Snowshoe for several years and have stayed in lots of condos. This condo is definitely my favorite. We really like staying in Soaring Eagle Lodge. The style of the condo and the whole lodge is very beautiful. The condo was very spacious for a two-bedroom. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. This was the second time I stayed there and I plan to make many more trips."

Winterplace Travel Tips

Winterplace Vacation Rentals Are Great Year-Round

The aptly named Winterplace, West Virginia attracts visitors for the amazing winter activities available here. It is conveniently located just minutes from Exit 28, Interstate 77 at Ghent or US Route 19. Winterplace lodging is found in a unique location, allowing for great skiing even when the heavy snow is falling. Once here, visitors find a continental climate of pleasant summers and generally cold snow-filled winters.

Winterplace Condos for Spectacular Winter Activities

Winterplace vacation rentals are in one of the best ski resort areas in the region. Here, visitors will find 27 trails on this 10,000-foot facility. There is also a popular snowboarding park with features like tabletops, gaps, hips and rails. It also provides some of the best tubing runs around, with several lanes and two super carpet lifts, meaning short lines for tubes. The lanes are long and tubers can fly over multiple bump and humps while rocketing down the hill.

Great Summertime Fun near Winterplace

Winterplace condos are close to a variety of parks that add to the vacation experience at any time of year. One of the main whitewater rafting areas is Gauley River, where visitors can experience some of the best rafting in the region with over 30 miles of river to travel. At Little Beaver State Park, visitors can enjoy over 560 acres of woodland and lake area. The lake is open year-round for hiking, biking and fishing. Anglers may catch bluegill, bass, crappie, channel cat and trout. There are 18 hiking trails, varying in length with some taking hikers over very steep terrain. There are picnic areas with playgrounds and other activities such as goecaching.

At the popular Pipestem Resort State Park, anglers will enjoy Long Branch Lake, Bluestone River and New River where stocks of species such as smallmouth bass and trout are maintained. On the lake and rivers, visitors can take paddle boats and canoes, or simply swim. There are two golf courses as well as over 20 trails for hiking, biking and horseback riding. At the recreation center, there is an Olympic-sized outdoor pool, indoor pool, tennis courts, sauna, game room and exercise facilities. Also here is the sky tram where many enjoy a five-minute trip over the stunning Bluestone River Gorge. An unusual feature of the park is its outdoor amphitheater where music events are held.

With 276 acres next to the New River Gorge National River, Hawks Nest State Park attracts many visitors who enjoy the water. Within the park, there are fabulous whitewater rafting trips and exhilarating jetboat rides. The jetboats race through the gorge but give visitors the opportunity to enjoy the ride and the views of the impressive steel bridge as the boats pass underneath. There is an aerial tramway from the park to the marine down in the New River Gorge. Of course, there are also some beautiful hikes here, taking visitors wandering through the forest and along the river.

At nearby Beckley is the Beckley Exhibition Coal Mine. The biggest attraction here takes visitors underground over 1,500 feet to explore an old coal mine, riding on "man cars," from the entrance through the old mining works and back. Above ground, visitors can learn more about the life of a mining community by visiting each of the exhibits, such as the Superintendents Home, Church, Coal Camp School, and more.
