Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: I am the VP of Communications for the Better Business Bureau of Greater Maryland and Larry is a retired firefighter and government administrator. We have two grown children and one granddaughter who loves to ski. Larry and I have come to love Snowshoe, along with an occassional glass of wine or Johnnie Walker Black and time with friends and family. We also have a small oceanfront condo in Ocean City, MD that is perfect for beach-lovers.
Why the Owner Chose Marlinton, WV, USA:
Accompanied by our realtor in search of the perfect mountain getaway, we pulled up to this new cedar home tucked back into the woods. Lying under the balcony was an eight-point buck - it was a sign. We loved the home's three-story interior that allowed plenty of room for large family gatherings. We drew up the contract and 'The Perfect Escape' was born. Since then, we have become friends with the home's builder from whom we purchased the property, Jerry Holder, and his family. He still says we stole it (though usually with a smile).
The Unique Benefits at this House:
There's not enough we can say about the laid-back lifestyle in Snowshoe and especially at The Perfect Escape. Being in the woods in the nearest development to the resort and not in the thick of 'the mountain,' was the best (and least expected) benefit of a visit to The Perfect Escape. Enjoying the deck and hot tub without the noise of neighbors and the buzz of cell phones is awesome. But since we couldn't live without social media and email, the wireless Internet is good for smartphone addicts and workaholics (myself included). The faint of heart appreciate our easy approach, there are none of those dips and curves that make you feel you are about to fall off the mountain. But the snow piles up fast, so you still need four-wheel drive to get around in Snowshoe - you have been warned.
