About Janet Owens

My 3 children and I all love to ski but we enjoy Snowshoe in the summer just as much . We love to bike the Greenbriar River trail and a day trip to Cass railroad. We have enjoyed working together as a family to make Overlook our home away from home & we are now looking forward to sharing our home with you.

Janet Owens purchased this condo in 1996

Why Janet Owens chose Snowshoe

We bought at Snowshoe because we love to ski and we loved the quiet country setting of Overlook. Overlook suited our need for a quiet pet friendly location and we loved all the trees surrounding the complex. We had rented on top of the mountain many times and we're tired of the noise and crowds & we preferred Overlook because of it's homey log cabin feel . We also loved the large uncrowded hot tub . We liked the vaulted log ceilings and the skylights as well as the large windows & deck!from which to enjoy the view.

What makes this condo unique

Close to golf course , restaurants and grocery store. It is a quieter and larger condo than most found at the mountaintop but it is just a short drive from the top of the mountain . A 9 mile scenic drive alone highway 66 will take you to Cass railroad which is a wonderful day out for the kids. Cass is also a great place to get on the Greenbrier River Trail. We have seen all kinds of wildlife down by the river. River rafting and fly fishing are other great summer activities & Shavers lake is open for swimming, paddle boating and canoeing. Although Overlook is a condo complex, with its' log structure , it feels more like a little mountain cabin. We love to sit on the deck during the warm weather after a meal cooked on the outdoor grill.

Cozy Cabin With All the Essentials

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our two night stay here in early February. We came planning to snowboard; however, the weather was severely uncooperative! So, we spent much more time in the cabin than we had expected and we were fortunate that the cabin was so comfortable to stay in. Janet was very friendly, informative, and responsive when setting up plans and responding to questions about the stay. We didn't have any problems while we were there. The cabin itself was just as pictured. My favorite part was the amount of light that came in the cabin. The bed was super comfortable, the kitchen was well stocked (we could have done with an extra roll of paper towels and aluminum foil), and there were plenty of extra blankets and comforters. The television and cable worked perfectly and the wi-fi (yes!!) was so, so crucial in helping us plan our way around the mountain (again, due to bad weather we really needed to check weather updates at the resort, store hours around town, etc.). I also enjoyed having the little electric fireplace. The hot tub was very close by and we had it to ourselves for a short time until we were joined by other guests but they were very nice people and we did not mind the extra company. The Par-Mar store was easy to find and we spent a good amount of time going around town a bit and saw some pretty cute stores. Overall, we were pretty disappointed that we couldn't snowboard at all but the saving grace of the trip was undoubtedly this super cute and cozy cabin we were able to hunker down in all weekend and the nice town we were able to explore around. We enjoyed the cabin so much that we will definitely try to make it back in the future and just cross our fingers for a better weather forecast.

We greatly enjoyed our stay at this property - nice and quiet location, and the rental had all of the amenities we needed. Thanks for being welcoming to dogs! Ours loved sitting and looking out the big picture window in the bedroom.

Cozy, well furnished and comfortable

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 nights at the cabin with my son this last February and had a great time. We enjoyed the cabin a lot and had no complains. The common hot tub is a great addition after a day skiing. Janet was great at returning emails or answering questions. Thank you Janet.

Convenient, pet friendly, cozy

  • 5 of 5

This place was a great option for access to Snowshoe, and even when the weather didn't really cooperate with us to go skiing, it was a great spot for hanging out. Nice community hot tub, kitchen well stocked with cooking implements, cozy place. The host was great with communication and check in/out was a breeze. Thank you!
