About The Owner

In addition to owning these this beautiful mountain resort home, we are avid skiers, golfers, cyclists, and college football fans! In the summer we enjoy boating with our friends and family. A few times each year we travel to Breckenridge, Colorado to ski and visit family and friends.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2003

Why The Owner chose South Mountain

After spending many years renting and owning vacation properties on Snowshoe Mountain, WV, we decided to build our dream mountain retreat that would house our extended family all at once.

What makes this estate unique

Mack's Shack is located in the Hawthorne Valley section of Snowshoe Mountain and is just a 10 minute drive to all the major ski lifts. We have enjoyed many summer activities on Snowshoe Mountain over the years such as mountain biking, horseback riding and rafting. Beginning the Thanksgiving holiday each year and throughout the winter months, we have enjoyed winter ski vacations with friends and family while enjoying all of the amenities that life "on top" has to offer. Snowshoe Mountain offers fine dining, shopping, alpine skiing, snowboarding, snow mobiling and tubing.

Lovely large home at base of mountain

  • 5 of 5

I'd highly recommend this beautiful home for bigger groups or families. It's set up really well for large groups and the 3 gas and one wood burning stove are a nice touch. It's nicely situated with a lot of privacy. We had a few issues when we arrived but Sharon was very prompt in resolving those and they didn't detract from our stay. Although we were active, it was nice to have satellite TV with all the major stations. The internet could be faster, but that may be par for the course in this mountain area.

Enjoyed our stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love the look and feel of the house. It felt like home. Great kitchen and living spaces. The owner was a very gracious host and welcoming.

Being addicted to our cell phones and tablets, interenet connection were challenging. Maybe a higher being was telling us to get offline and go enjoy nature and each other's company.

I would highly recommend the house.

#1 place to stay in Snowshoe!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from three wonderful nights, getting together with our five children and their families. Mack's Shack was even better than expected. You feel at home as soon as you pull up in the driveway. The home is incredible and the property was perfect for the children (young and old) to enjoy sledding. The views were spectacular....surrounded by nature. A piece of heaven. Best of all our entire group had such a wonderful time. This was the first time in 5 years we could get everyone together and they left saying they couldn't wait to get together again. We will definitely go back! Thank you Sharon for making all this possible!!

The perfect estate home for our Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were absolutely fascinated by the beauty, décor, and openness of Mack’s Shack estate log cabin. Believe me when I say the pictures capture a glimpse of how stunning and well maintained the owners keep the estate. Each room has its own personality that keeps true to the log cabin architecture. The grounds of the home are very nicely landscaped and the abundance of trees at an ideal distance from the home adds to the beauty of the property. The owners of the home were very attentive and responded to my inquiries within minutes. As our first ski trip to Snowshoe, my family and I were completely satisfied and could not have asked for a better vacation in West Virginia. We are already planning for a summer trip and second ski vacation at Snowshoe and our only choice is Mack’s Shack. Thank you Sharon for making our family vacation an unforgettable experience.

Family Ski Trip With Kids

  • 5 of 5

The reviews that say the photos don't do the property justice are 100% correct, this estate easily exceeded our expecations! Great layout for big meal prep and serving. The bedrooms were very spacious and offered plenty of room for an infant pack n play or crib setup. Property was ideal for sledding for the kids, just steps from the garage. So many "ski rental" properties feel like the walls are closing in on you and you have to get outside, this is not the case with Mack's Shack. As we drove past other properties on Hawthorne Rd, we gained an appreciation for how perfect the driveway and layout of this property is compared to the others. We were excited to see an abundance of things to do in warm weather and are already kicking around the idea of a summer trip back to Mack's. Owners were very responsive to anything we needed while we were there. We would HIGHLY recommend this property as one of the best VRBOs we have ever been to!
