About Carolyn Raines

Our family has been skiing and enjoying Snowshoe for many years. We looked at numerous complexes before deciding to buy at The Summit where the condominiums were spacious and comfortable for our family of six. Our home in Huntington, WV is surrounded on one side by the Ohio River and on the other by the Big Sandy River, summers are hot and the humidity is 85 to 95% 3 months of the year. We love the cool, NO humidity summer weather on Snowshoe Mountain as well as all the snow in winter and have enjoyed many family gatherings and the friendly homeowner community.

Carolyn Raines purchased this condo in 2003

Why Carolyn Raines chose West Virginia

We were a family of 6 that love fly fishing, golfing, skiing and photography. Though we had traveled and vacationed in many places at home and abroad, we fell in love with the beauty and variety of activities available in the mountains of West Virginia. Our extended family and many friends were buying property at Snowshoe or in the surrounding area and after several visits, we began looking for a place of our own. That was in 2003, we are now a family of 2 but our adult children and we still love our mountain home and gather there for family and fun times summer and winter.

What makes this condo unique

Our condominium is spacious yet cozy and comfortable; cool in summer and warm in winter, a place where the whole family and friends can reunite. You can stand on the deck during any season and photograph the beautiful mountain vistas and a multitude of wild life, WV black bears, red foxes, white tailed deer and if you are lucky, the elusive and beautiful Snowshoe Hare, brown in summer and white in winter.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Carolyn,

The photos do not do your condo justice. Your condo is fantastic and the mountain views from the deck are great. Skiing conditions were perfect...all that new snow Thursday, WOW.

Thanks for letting us stay, we will be back.

Wonderful Holiday Week!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Carolyn, We had an absolutely fantastic time! Working with Carolyn and the staff at The Summit was quite enjoyable and easy. This unit is by far one of the most equipped and fully stocked units we've ever rented. The location at the top of the mountain directly across from the village was superb. We mostly took the shuttle with our ski equipment, the staircase is quite steep, but found that process to be quite easy and we never waited long. The drivers were always pleasant and accommodating as well. The living room is quite spacious with enough seating for everyone to relax by the fireplace a day on the slopes. If we come back to Snowshoe we would definitely stay here again!

Great!!!

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay!! A very nice and spacious condo that allowed more than enough room for all of those who made the trip with me. The condo has that nice "home" feeling although it's a vacation. Sitting around the fireplace in the living room was perfect after a long day on the slopes. Carolyn was a pleasure to talk with and very easy going throughout the process of making the reservation. We really look forward to making the trip up to Snowshoe an annual thing. Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your condo!!!

Great time

  • 4 of 5

I brought my teenage son for his 16th birthday, a friend of his, and my college age nephew to Snowshoe. We had good communication with the owner prior to our trip and she was very nice and prompt with her responses. The condo was exactly as described and the resort was better than the NC ski resorts. We will come back to Snowshoe in the future. The drive is longer from Greenville but the variety of slopes made it worthwhile for a non-flight required ski vacation. We will come after Christmas next time to give mother nature a little more time to snow and build a base covering the terrain. There were deer right outside our window every day at the condo.

Good Location and Price

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect for 3 adult couples since they had double or queen beds in all the rooms, most 3 bedroom places have bunk beds in one of the bedrooms which makes it hard for all adults traveling. The facilities was clean and comfy. Loved the fireplace, it was great especially since it snowed from Friday til Sunday while we were there and it was very blistery outside. The location was great, we just had to walk up the stairs and the village and skiing was at the top. We didn't use our cars once because the shuttles were good and the location was walkable to most things. Kitchen was well stocked. Staples like salt, pepper, foil, saran wrap were all provided as well as toilet paper. The towels were good too, I usually bring my own but these were decently sized and absorbant.

If you don't have a 4 wheel vehicle and it snows, you might want to park on top of the hill in the pay parking lot. Some people had problems making it up the hill to get out of the complex.

Cell phone service is horrible so be warned and only AT&T works up there and that is spotty...that has nothing to do with the condo but rather the location of the resort.

Owner's Response: Hello Athena, Thank you for reviewing,we are happy you enjoyed your stay and hope you will visit again. It's so true about the cell service,very irritating,and the problem exists all over the resort. We have AT&T cell service ourselves because of Snowshoe and at times even that doesn't work. Sorry for the inconvenience. Warm Regards, Carolyn
