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 West Virginia

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.

Nice escape!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to take our dog on a long ski weekend. This served as the perfect place to stay just close enough to the mountain but away from large crowds. It was a great couples get away and had a great few days of skiing. We had some fairly heavy snow while there and the roads became quite slippery for those without 4 wheel drive. I would definitely make sure they are cleared or have some chains if venturing out on snow days. Otherwise we had a couple nice local options for food and rented our gear at the local Elk River ski and snowboard shop at a great rate. Thanks for the excellent New Years weekend!

We stayed for 3 nights. One thing I must mention above all is how responsive the owner, Janet, is to questions. She is great! I'll get this out of the way, the only downside was the WiFi and don't plan or cell phone access if you have ATT. But, is that really a bad thing. The cabin is very clean and comfortable. We prepared Thanksgiving dinner in the cabin. The kitchen was equipped with all the cooking equipment, with exception of a roaster. I brought that. The cabin is a bit hard to find. There is a big sign at the entrance to the road, however it is not lit and it's VERY dark out there. Oh bring a flashlight, you'll need it. The beds are comfortable and the Murphy Bed is very handy. The cabin is 1.5 miles from the road to Snowshoe Village. I recommend The Junction for dinner. Bring ALL your groceries. The closest grocery store is 23 miles away in Marlinton. The PM gas station 2 miles away is very well stocked.

Owner's Response: Thank you So much for your kind review ! We are waiting anxiously for the installation of the new internet system which should be available before the end of the ski season this year. At the moment we have the only provider available and it is VERY slow. Cell phone reception is very difficult all through the Snowshoe area. this is due to it's proximity to the GBT at Greenbank which has the country's largest radio telescope . The only provider allowed to have towers is ATT and there are a couple of boosters up on top of Snowshoe ( try Foxfire Grill) but service is patchy at best. I am able to get service from ATT at overlook but I sometimes have to stand outside! ( yes in the snow!) Please come back, Janet

We had the best time staying at Janet's condo in Snowshoe. It's quiet and only a short drive from the village! I loved that we were able to bring our sweet pup and also enjoyed playing the board games that are provided in the condo!:) I'd definitely recommend staying here!!!!!!

Cozy mountain place, Great for pups!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long weekend with our two dogs for a couple days of skiing. The cabin was nice and well stocked. We brought a few groceries and found the kitchen to have everything we needed. The bed was comfortable and the sky light allowed us to see the stars while lying in bed. The property was very pet friendly, but the place was sound proof enough that I couldn't hear the neighbors or other dogs barking. We were able to take advantage of the trail at the end of the road to walk our dogs. And the sauna was quite relaxing after a long day of skiing! All in all, the place was just what we were looking for. If you want a little privacy away from the bustle at the top of Snowshoe, yet close enough to come home for lunch, this is the place for you!

Great cozy cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Overlook condo for 4 nights to snowboard and enjoy the mountains. It was wonderful!

The living room was cozy with a nice fireplace and TV to relax after a day on the mountain, the kitchen was fully stocked which was nice because we cooked all our own meals. The bed was very large and comfortable. We used the community hot tub 3 nights, it was too cold the first day we arrived from just being cleaned (which we weren't complaining about!). We also loved the fact that we could bring our dog along and the Overlook community was very dog friendly.

Thank you for a great home away from home to stay at! It definitely made our Snowshoe visit all the better!

No Hidden Fees. Fully stocked.

  • 5 of 5

Another great stay. I like that towels, linens, paper towels, toilet paper and dish towels are provided in the advertised price. Makes packing easy. This place is quiet and the neighbors are friendly. Be sure to eat at The Fiddlehead. Janet is easy to work with and returns your damage deposit quickly.
