About Fran Rudolph

My husband and I and our two - now grown - children live in Wrightsville Beach, NC. And, by the way, if you're interested in a beach vacation, we also have a wonderful and affordable 2 bedroom bungalow just a five minute walk from the beach - please check it out at VRBO listing #358823. My husband is a psychologist and I'm a family and life coach. We like to meet our kids and friends at the Snowshoe Creekside condo as much as possible. Summer is a real treat - I don't ever think I've seen green like Snowshoe in August. Fall is just as wonderful. 2010 was the first time for us to see the WV leaves change - so spectacular - and the hiking, too. Best of all is the skiing. Chris grew up skiing in Vermont and we both spent time skiing in Colorado and the Tahoe area. Without a doubt, Snowshoe is right up there when it comes to a fun ski experience. You don't need the extra hassles of air travel, and the lift lines are shorter - that means more skiing!!!

Fran Rudolph purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Fran Rudolph chose Snowshoe

After skiing at Snowshoe with our kids for the past 15 years, we decided to make our gathering spot more permanent. Over the years, we had stayed in almost every complex at Snowshoe and SilverCreek, so when it came time to find a place of our own, we spent a long time looking. Lots of places had benefits but none as much as Creekside. It was the largest and most spacious condo we had ever seen or stayed in. Having three floors makes it soooo easy to spread out, especially with large gatherings of friends and family. The realtor kept saying, 'Don't you want to be in the village?' Not really, as I thought back to what made Snowshoe ski trips so memorable: cooking together, playing games by the fire, and putting together at least one 1000 piece puzzle! Of course, we would pick up the free shuttle and head into the village at least once during the week, usually to take a swim at Split Rock Pool. Other than that, our best memories are from the relaxing time we spent with each other in front of the fire - for me, that's what a ski vacation is all about. And that's what led us to buying our wonderful condo at Creekside - I hope you'll love it as much as we do!!!

What makes this townhome unique

The shuttle bus stops right in front of the condo making it so easy for the kids to get around on their own. The Silver Creek Lodge slopes and tubing hill are right behind the condo complex and just a short walk away. And, the only place for night skiing is right here! You can't beat taking a dip in the private hot tub on the deck after a day on the slopes.

For indoor fun there are plenty of old-fashioned games and puzzles to get the whole family together. Or, gather on the ground floor for a friendly foosball tournament

Bring your family to Camp Bear Watch and start making some wonderful memories!

Fantastic Accommodations!

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to spend 4 days in Fran's condo along with 3 of my friends during the US National Mountain Bike Championships this summer. We could not have asked for better accommodations. The place has everything you could want in a vacation rental, great location, extremely clean and stocked with every essential you could want. Thanks Fran for taking great care of us.

Perfect Snowshoe Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Bear Watch townhouse over the St Patrick's day weekend. The townhouse was very clean, comfortable and spacious. Our group consisted of adults, teenagers, an elementary aged child and 2 furry family members. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed our time at Bear Watch! The game room was a big hit with the teenagers. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked and made cooking easy. The hot tub was wonderful after a fun day on the slopes! The fireplace made it nice and cozy in the living room while we played some board games. Our whole family is looking forward to going back to Snowshoe next year, We've all agreed that Bear Watch is where we want to stay!

Great property. Clean and well equipped! Hospitable Owner!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property! We had a wonderful time at Snowshoe staying in Fran's townhouse. Everything was sparkling clean when we arrived and there were supplies galore! I was very impressed with how well equipped the kitchen was, as previous reviewers also noted. We did quite a bit of cooking so it worked out great for us. Fran sent us a whole packet of information 2 weeks prior to our arrival that included a full inventory of kitchen supplies which helped us prepare. She even called to make sure everything was in order when we arrived the first day.

Like other reviewers, we ended up using the game room, which is a super cute room, as a 5th bedroom since the bunk room was a bit tight for 2 adults to share (our group was 2 couples and 3 singles). The gear room was very convenient for us, and the shuttle stop was SO CLOSE! We were also able to walk back from Silver Creek in the evening when the shuttle lines were long. I was also pleasantly surprised with the amount of parking that was available in front of the unit. We were able to fit 4 vehicles in front of the unit and no one had to park in overflow.

Thanks again and I look forward to booking this property next season :).

Great family weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family trip at your lovely condo. The weather didn't really cooperate very well but that didn't keep us off the slopes or from having a great time. Thanks!

Great family spot

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location next to bus stop easy access to silver creek slopes and snowshoe. Hot tub was a hit with kids and a saving grace to the adults after a long day on the slopes. Kids had their own space to hangout downstairs with TV and games. Jacuzzi in the master sweet was also a hit. Would definitely return.
