About the property

Soaring Eagle Lodge offers the BEST accomodations on the mountain, and is 'Platinum' rated by the Snowshoe Resort. After staying here you will never want to stay anywhere else. Our stylishly approinted 2 bedroom, 2 bath luxury condo is slightly less than 1200 square feet of comfortable living space. The complex was positioned at the highest point in the resort and was completed in December of 2006. This makes it the newest and top rated building on the mountain.

Located on the top floor, the condo offers beautiful long-range sunset views from the private 6 x 16 ft balcony or from one of the double windows. Our unit also offers 9 foot ceilings. The main living area provides a large flat screen TV & Blue Ray Player allowing access to the internet.

The Kitchen is fully equipped with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. This makes it easy and convenient to make a family meal with all the amenities of home, including a microwave, dishwasher, blender, crock-pot, toaster, both a multi cup and a Keurig single serving coffe maker,etc. We have significantly augmented the cooking utensils and dishes, which were originally provided with the unit.

Share your family meals within view of the gas fireplace. The dining table seats 6, with 2 additional places at the bar. There is also a buffet in the dining room, which is full of family games, toys and puzzles for the children.

The master suite has a king sized bed, dresser, night tables with reading lamps and a 42 inch flat screen TV with DVD player & cable. The large tiled adjoining bath has a garden tub with a separate shower. The second bedroom comfortably holds a queen sized bed, chest and flat screen TV with DVD player (Cable not available in this room only). The large hall bath is also fully tiled with a large shower. Both bedrooms are furnished with comfortable chairs to allow guests to catch up on some reading or provide a quite place for the kids to watch TV. If you have a large family or invited guests a convertible sleeper sofa is available in the main living area. There is more closet space than you could ever use. A must for our family is the washer and dryer conveniently located in a separate closet (Warm up or dry out those gloves with each bathroom break).

As for activities, the Soaring Eagle Doppelmayr high-speed quad lift provides direct access to the green rated Upper Flume, the blue rated J-Hook or 4 of the black diamond slopes. This building is truly ski-in, ski-out with the lift located steps from the ground floor locker room. The unit is within easy walking distance (or utilize the free shuttle service) to the many shops, restaurants, Split Rock Pool, and the other attractions of the Snowshoe Resort.

You can access onsite ski and snowboard rental from Elk River. For advanced booking and or rate information please visit their website. Make sure to inform them you are staying at SEL and you will receive a 10% discount. You can also visit the most upscale restaurant in the resort, South Mountain Grille, which offers the best ambiance, seafood and steaks on the mountain. It is the only restaurant at Snowshoe to take reservations, so make sure to call ahead. Afterwards you can enjoy drinks in the private bar located in The Hearth Room.

Snowshoe is well known for its annual snowfall, which averages over 15 feet. During the winter of 2011/12 we had respectable conditions when many resorts were without snow.

About Eric/Laura Panner

We are a family of 6 from Concord, NC. The skiing abilites of our family members vary from beginner to expert, making the location perfect for us.

Eric/Laura Panner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Eric/Laura Panner chose Snowshoe

Our family travels from NC for the incredible skiing. Due to the poor conditions in NC during the winter of 2011/12, we made our first trip to Snowshoe. After skiing here it was very difficult to return to our local ski areas. We made multiple trips to Snowshoe over the course of that winter staying at various Gold and Platinum properties. On our last family trip we discovered Soaring Eagle Lodge. Up until that point we had not considered buying a property at the Resort, however that trip changed everything. For various reasons everyone in the family felt this property was far superior to anything else on the mountain. We were sold.

What makes this condo unique

Typically, this is a quiet and relaxing building, offering an exclusive massage therapist, and hot tubs overlooking the mountain. It also has the largest and nicest common area on the mountain. In addition to the bar, the Hearth Room offers two enormous wood burning fireplaces, a 60-inch TV, games, and an extensive selection of books.

Soaring Eagle for the win

  • 5 of 5

Property is excellent and owners have thought of everything, including some treats and snacks to have in a pinch. Tastefully decorated and warm and cozy. Skiing is truly steps away. I would come back in a heartbeat.

Best place to stay in Snowshoe.

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in soaring eagle unit 416. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is plenty of room for a family of 4-6. We enjoy the restaurant downstairs and the beautiful relaxing hearth room with spectacular views! We will definitely come back again!

Wonderful Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Soaring Eagle is by far the best place to stay at Snowshoe. Great ski in/out facility with heated lockers. Located at South Mountain and just far enough away from the village. Our rental this year was spacious, maintained and well appointed. The little extras made for a special trip ... Keurig with supplies, candy drawer, boot/glove heaters, board games and spice rack to name a few. Also, a huge plus is the underground parking facility on site. Very nice when loading and unloading the luggage.

Loved it in July

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the condo over the July 4th extended holiday weekend. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean and perfect for our family of 5. Eric (the owner) was so helpful and contacted us to make sure that we were okay.

1. The kitchen was well stocked and our 3 young boys almost immediately found the snack drawer! They even had a Keurig for my coffee-loving husband. It had everything you could possibly need. Full spice rack, all cooking utensils/pots/pans/etc.

2. Guest room was large enough for the boys to share. 2 boys in the queen size bed and the youngest in the twin air mattress (he had to be with his big brothers)

3. Master bedroom king size bed was very comfortable and the bedsheets didn't feel cheap or itchy.

There's much more I could mention but I would run out of space. We also loved chatting with Erica the lodge's concierge. She was so helpful and friendly. She saved us a trip by telling us where to buy our supplies. We just had so much fun. This was our first time in Snowshoe and we hope to return some day soon.

Thanks so much!!
