About Laura Santmyer

We have two boys that started skiing at ages 3 and 5! We have a hard time keeping up with them on the slopes now!

Laura Santmyer purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Laura Santmyer chose West Virginia

After two visits to ski at Snowshoe, our family knew we would return year after year. We purchased Stemwinder 5 recognizing that it is in one of the best locations on the mountain. The summer of 2013 we completely renovated the house: new flooring, new paint, new fixtures, and new furniture and accessories. We also remodeled the lower level to create a second king master suite with bath and game room. We love our mountain home getaway and love the convenience of skiing from this wonderful ski in/ski out location. It is so true that once you arrive at Stemwinder 5, you can plan to park you car and not use it again until you leave. You can easily stroll to the village for all your shopping, rental and dining needs. You can choose to ski right off the back deck for the Snowshoe Basin ski area, you can walk about 2 minutes across from the Powder Monkey Life and ski the awesome Cupp Run at Western Territory, or you can go to the the free shuttle stop and ski Silver Creek. So many options and all are so easy to get to.

What makes this townhome unique

Snowshoe is such a beautiful, majestical mountain and you can capture the magnificent views of the mountains and Shavers lake from inside the home or on the back balcony. Plus, with the real wood burning fireplace it is cozy, warm and inviting. We welcome you to enjoy our home, as your home away from home.

One of the best!

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed in this rental, and I'm telling you, you can't go wrong with this rental! We stayed over Thanksgiving weekend, and used every inch of this space. The inside is beautiful. They had every kind of kitchen utensil that we needed--there is even a crockpot! If you come and want to make soup, or start dinner in the morning, the crockpot is a great addition! May sound silly to some, but for a mom who skis, this is so beneficial!

The location can't be beat either! You can go out the downstairs door to the back porch, walk to the end of the building, and you are at the bottom of the powder monkey lift. We had 8 kids that weekend (ages 3-10), and they had a blast! They were making tunnels and igloos in the snow, right outside the door. The big top is a 5 minute walk or less, walking through the parking lots. If your kids are taking ski lessons, Expedition Station & skidder slope is less than 10 minutes away. We brought food with us, and only left to take the kids to the Big Top or to ski.

Another nice benefit is the internet access and free long distance. Having the land line was very nice. My only gripe is with the management company--this is in no way a reflection of the owners. If you are coming in late or after hours, make sure you speak with the management company on their procedures, because they are NOT outlined in the information that is sent once you make the reservation. We had multiple family members coming from different directions, with only a few of us familiar with the area, and they closed the office early without letting us know what to do, and no one to answer the phone after hours. When I made the reservation, I had been told they would be open late because it was a holiday weekend, but they were not. I also spoke with them 3 times the day we were arriving, and no one ever mentioned they would be closing at a semi-normal time. There was a major snow storm that started that morning, but again, they NEVER mentioned what time they would close or what we should do. It was a little hairy for a little while, but everyone got there ok. We've learned our lesson for sure!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the positive review. We are so happy you found our home comfortable and convenient. We are situated on the slopes for easy ski in/ski out, a stones throw from the Big Top, a short 5 minute walk to the heart of the village, an easy 2 minute walk and you are skiing the Western Territory or catching the shuttle bus for Silver Creek. I am sorry for the difficult check-in process you experienced. We will share this with the rental management company. Again, so happy the house was "one of the best!"

We truly appreciated the location of this rental. Loved skiing out, stopping for breaks, walking to the Shaver Center, walking to the village; all, literally minutes away. My idea of a vacation setting. The house had plenty of space for alone time and together time and provided all that we needed during our stay. We really liked having telephone capability and internet - both of which are sparse on the mountain. Highly recommend.

The best location on the mountain for families

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse sits right on the slopes and the kids loved being the first ones on the slopes in the morning. The parents loved not having to carry their gear a long way! It is an end unit, so the kids enjoyed playing out in the snow, sledding and making snow tunnels. It is so convenient to everything Snowshoe has to offer but still offers privacy. It was just a very short walk to the Village for dinner and to the Western Express. The townhouse itself is well-stocked with every amenity a family could need. The beds are very comfortable, the rooms are so clean and spacious and the kitchen is well organized. Our children were happy to stay inside and play foosball, board games and watch DVDs on the large TVs. We especially liked how there were so many different areas to gather in the house. We made so many wonderful memories during our stay here and would highly recommend this to anyone coming to Snowshoe. You really can't get more convenient than Stemwinder 5! We look forward to returning their next year!

My family stayed here a few weeks ago and made great memories. The townhome is clean and spacious. It was VERY convenient to the Shaver's Center, village and the ski slopes. It had every convenience of home. We even took advantage of the real fireplace (and provided wood) and built a fire one night. We have already booked for the same weekend next year...repeat renters says it all!

** I did suggest to the owners that they put a password on their WIFI so other townhomes (next door) or nearby couldn't hop on and slow down the service!!

**Kitchen needs tea kettle, but we made do w/ a soup pan or the microwave

THE Best place to stay at Snowshoe!

  • 5 of 5

Stemwinder 5 is truly the BEST situated location to rent while visiting Snowshoe. The townhouse is very comfortable and has all the amenities you could want plus some you may not realize you would need, which made our stay the best yet while at Snowshoe. The renovations made the stay feel luxurious and yet like a home away from home. We had 11 people in our party and we had plenty of room to spread out and not feel like we were on top of one another. The proximity to the Village is perfect and it is truly ski-in/ski-out, which made stopping in for lunch or going in at the end of our day an enjoyable experience instead of a drudgery. (Especially with four children under the age of 8.) It also allowed us to be first out on the slopes in the morning--you can't beat having the slopes to yourself for the first couple of runs. I highly recommend Stemwinder 5 to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay at Snowshoe any time of the year. You will love your stay here and all the conveniences this townhouse offers. My family will be visiting Stemwinder 5 for years to come; we all loved it and agreed it is the best place to stay in Snowshoe.
