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
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.
Thank you so much, i am glad that you made the best of your stay despite the weather. That is very disappointing. How I wish I had control over the weather. If you can come back please remind me who you are and I will discount your next stay . Thanks again, Janet
Great place to stay.
We have stayed here several times now. Always a great place to stay. Price is reasonable and Janet is easy to work with.
Thank you so much ! It is always a pleasure to have you back and I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Thanks again, Janet
Enjoyed our stay!
The condo had everything we needed during our stay! Great location and very close to skiing! The beds were incredibly comfortable. Would definitely recommend and will return.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. Please do come back and visit again. if you have never been to snowshoe in the summer , you really should, Cass train is nearby and there are amazing bike trails as well as the mountain biking. Horseback riding and kayaking are also available. Thanks . again, janet
Cozy, well furnished and comfortable
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.
I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to have you as my guest, please do come back again. Janet
Convenient, pet friendly, cozy
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!
Thank you so much for your lovely review. I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay. If only I could control the weather! Please do come back and visit again. Snowshoe is amazing in the summer as well & the rates are lower too! All the best, Janet
Thank you so much Janet, we really enjoyed staying at your place. Beds, kitchen, internet, everything was perfect. It is so nice that people like yourself allow us to bring Ricky along.
I certainly recommend it for a family of 2-4 people.
1) it took some time to figure out how to turn on the lights on in the bedroom. Perhaps this can be adjusted to accommodate simpleminded folks like myself.
2) provide proper map of the property location.
