About the property

3 Bedrooms/ 2 Baths, Close to Village Center; Panoramic view; Non-smoking home

Our condo on top of the mountain is our family gathering place where many great memories are created, but we are glad to share it with families with the same appreciation for the gorgeous view created daily by the sun, clouds, and the West Virginia mountains. We have begun taking reservations for the upcoming ski season. Once again, we did not increase our rental fees (four years in a row). In exchange, please treat our home as if it were your own, with care!

Please note that no smoking is allowed in our home. Also, pets are not allowed in any of the Summit condos outside of the pets owned by the owners.

Every year, we try to do something to make it more special, and this year, we changed the bedroom carpeting to a more subdued color. The small bedroom now has a bunk bed with a futon bed on the bottom (double). Our grandchildren loved watching movies from the futon sofa/bed! You can use DVDs or Netflix from the two TVs. Our condo is perfect for a family gathering! Some toys are left there for the children, and the season begins with a homeowner's closet stocked with spices, flour, sugar, etc.

We have three bedrooms (Queen, double and twin/double) and a sofa bed in the living room. As Summit condos will not allow more than eight occupants, please make sure that your family is fewer than eight.

After a long day of skiing, relax by the gas fireplace and, with a glass of wine, watch the most beautiful sunset right from the living room! Summit Condos are known for the beautiful western view. Third-floor condos offer a view over the mountains, looking down at the valley.

Snowshoe Resort is an “upside-down ski resort” with the lodging on top and lifts beginning from the mountaintop (elevation of 4848' with 251 acres of ski-able terrain). That gives us this wonderful mountain view. Snowshoe was once described 'an island in the sky.' In the morning, as the low clouds hover over the valley, we feel as if we are in an ocean, surrounded by islands. Over the years that we have visited our home, no sunrises or sunsets have been the same. It is as if nature erases the canvas during the night for the next day's pleasure!

We have a contract with Ski Barn (at the base and at Silver Creek) to give you a 10% discount on the equipment rental. Just tell them that you are renting our unit.

Those of you who are interested in the tropics, please see our home in Costa Rica which also will inspire you with inspiring ocean views and closeness to nature (monkeys, toucans, Scarlet Macaws, etc.) right from our property (VRBO#: 459279).

We appreciate your interest.

Sincerely,

Kei and Michael Gilbert (owners)

About Kei Gilbert

Michael (husband) was at one time a fearless skier going down the black diamond, and I (wife) was one of those 'forever beginners,' preferring the gentle green terrain. Years later, we are now happy to just watch others enjoying themselves.

Kei Gilbert purchased this condo in 1995

Why Kei Gilbert chose West Virginia

The view. Period. You can go skiing anywhere, but there is something super special about being on top of the mountain, watching the sun setting behind the mountains. The sky slowly changes color (red, orange, pink), as if we are watching acrylic paint being splashed on a three-dimensional canvas. Or, on a calm quiet morning, there is nothing more soothing than seeing low clouds that hover over the valley, with mountain peaks showing their majestic presence. Inspirational!

What makes this condo unique

Again, I say that what is so unique is the view from this third-floor Summit condo. You do not have to go to a restaurant to get their best table to watch the sunset. Just enjoy a private view from our living room! Summit condos are spacious and our newly renovated condo will make your stay very special!

We had a very nice stay in the West Virginia mountains. The room was a great central location for quick access to the slopes, dinning, shopping and shuttles. The pantry was full of those supplies you always forget and the unit is warmly decorated. Thanks again

Cozy Condo with lovely views

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at this condo twice this season and both times have been memorable. The condo is very cozy, well stocked and contains everything you need to cook right there. It has a comfortable lay out, great location to the village and ski lift and has magnificent views. The owners did everything possible to make our stay worthwhile. Feels like home. We have been there twice this season do to all of the above and plan to return in the future. Thank you Kei!

My family spent a long weekend at this condo, and I can't say enough about how nice the room was, its cleanliness, easy access to the slopes, and very kind and accommodating nature of the owners. I would definitely stay here again!!!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a great visit to snowshoe and this unit in summit was just right for our two families- 4 adults and three kids. Location across from the village allowed us to walk right up to the slopes whenever we wanted. The stairs were a little daunting in ski boots but even my 4 year old managed them. The unit owners were very responsive and kind to us, even when we had to spend an extra night because of a big snowstorm. Unit had all we needed and the great view was a bonus

Spectacular views, super responsive owners!

  • 4 of 5

Very close to Snowshoe Resort Village (just up a flight of about 40 stairs). Village has several different food options (BBQ, burgers, pizza, sandwiches & more). Great spot for mountain bikers in the summertime. Fabulous, challenging, mountain roads for motorcyclists, too! Within reasonable drive of National Radio Astronomy Observatory & Cass Railroad - both of which are well worth your time and money. Relax on the balcony and soak up the peace and quiet while enjoying the spectacular sunsets!

great time with friends

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time staying here in January. The view was great and the condo was clean, warm and inviting. Everything we needed was taken care of right away by the property manager. We will definitely be booking this again next year.
