About Owner/Property Manager

First Tracts Real Estate and Rentals rose from simple beginnings, and has become a premier real estate business at Snowshoe Mountain Resort. Alumni of WVU, co-owners Peter Monico and Dave Simmons, with degrees in business/communications and business, worked for Playground Destination Properties, and gained knowledge and wisdom in the real estate market in our region. With three years under their belt, Pete and Dave branched out and created their own real estate business on the mountain.

In April of 2007, First Tracts was formed. Two years later we began the popular Rental Management division of the company, managing just a small handful of homes.

Today First Tracts manages over a hundred homes in a variety of sizes and neighborhoods, both on and near the mountain. With a dedication to exemplary guest service, First Tracts Real Estate and Rentals has become the best source of upscale vacation rentals at Snowshoe.

We look forward to helping you as we provide excellence in customer service and lodging options, and deliver the vacation of your dreams!

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for sending us a review, and for making us aware of the issues you experienced during your stay. I am so sorry that your visit to our home was not as you expected. Housekeeping has been advised of your feedback on the poor quality of the cleaning prior to your stay, and is actively taking steps to ensure this does not happen again. This home is now scheduled for an annual deep clean and thorough maintenance inspection from top to bottom, and all these items will all be addressed. Due to your feedback we have already steam cleaned the carpets, and the tile floors have been hand scrubbed. We also purchased a new grill for the house, and it will be delivered today. We thank you for your detailed feedback, and please know that we are in process of correcting these issues.

My children rented this home for a 50th Anniversary get-together over the weekend of June 16-18. We found this home very well equipped, spacious for a large family. I would recommend this rental for anyone looking for a larger home. Loved the mountains! Owners were very cooperative with all the requests our children had to make this a very special celebration.
