Property description

Please note: During the non-ski months (typically Apr- Nov) SLOPESIDE is operated as THE SCRAP NEST, a scrapbooking and crafting retreat. Please see VRBO listing # 673230 for more details.

Slopeside was custom built for us in 2014. It sleeps 14 in 5 bedrooms (10 beds), with 4 ½ baths and over 3,000 sq. ft. of mountain style luxury. Nestled amongst the trees on one of the highest lots at Massanutten, Slopeside provides an amazing degree of privacy despite backing to the ski slopes (less than a 5 minute (1/4 mile) walk). Includes private off street parking for 5 cars.

You enter the home through the “Mountain Room” which provides a comfortable place to sit and remove your jackets, ski boots and to store outdoor gear. From the Mountain Room, you will enter into the Great Room with its 20’ high wooden cathedral ceiling, exposed beams and hand-scraped hickory floor. The seating area has a large stone fireplace with a remote activated gas fireplace. Settle into one of the new leather couches and load a DVD to watch your favorite movie on the 46” HDTV. We have over 220 channels on cable plus hi-speed Wi-Fi. Games, books and movies are also available.

The dining area features a custom built 12’ long farmhouse table made from century-old reclaimed white oak. The table seats 14 comfortably, enabling everyone to enjoy meals together. The spacious kitchen features an open-beamed wood ceiling, rustic hickory cabinets and granite countertops with a tile backsplash. Well lit and fully equipped, the kitchen has ample cookware and utensils to support a large family. The all-new appliances include a smooth top range, side by side refrigerator, Keurig machine, blender and other small appliances. Two of the five bedrooms, “Aspen” and “Vail”, are located on the main level, both with beamed wooden ceilings and furnished with Queen and Twin wrought iron beds. A full bath (connecting to the Vail bedroom) and a powder room are located on this level.

Above the kitchen is the loft, which provides a perfect spot to relax in the comfortable recliner and read a favorite book from the well-stocked bookcase. The “Alta” room is the romantic cathedral ceilinged master suite tucked away on this upper level. Alta contains a Queen sized four poster bed, a wrought iron twin day bed, ceiling fan, 40” HDTV, DVD player and another recliner. Alta’s en-suite bath has a claw foot Victorian tub, a separate shower, a granite double sink vanity and oil rubbed bronze fixtures.

The lower level contains a large wood ceilinged recreation room with a large sectional couch, foosball table, 60” HDTV, X-box 360, and Wii. Along the wall is a granite wet bar with a beverage fridge and a Keurig machine. Two bedrooms and two baths (one full, one 3/4) are also located on this level. The “Stowe” bedroom has twin beds while the “Whistler” bedroom has a wrought iron Queen bed, a wrought iron twin bed and its own private full bath. A laundry room with a full-size washer and dryer and a utility sink complete this level.

Enjoy the privacy provided by the extensive open space on both sides and the rear of the home as the exterior has multiple decks with a large gas grill, picnic table, porch swing and seating. No smoking or pets allowed anywhere on the property. Family Rentals only with the primary renter being at least 30 years old. No groups. No parties, receptions, meetings or similar events.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose McGaheysville, VA, USA:
We had always dreamed of owning a ski house in the Rockies, but after settling in Northern Virginia, we came to realize how impractical that would be. A couple of years ago, when our kids began skiing, we discovered Massanutten. Only a little over two hours from the DC Beltway it was very easy to get to and there was so much for the kids to do, that we decided it would be a great spot for a weekend home. We couldn't find any existing homes for sale that fit our vision of a ski house (and that had a big open room for her scrapbooking events). So we bought a lot, found a great builder and designed the home ourselves. Quite a few people questioned how anyone could build a home 'there'. But, a little over a year later after some extensive engineering, pouring a 16 foot high foundation wall and working from some very tall scaffolding, 'Slopeside' was completed. We hope you enjoy the home and Massanutten as much as we do.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Despite backing to the slopes, the home is very private with open space to the rear and both sides. Neighbors are definitely not a problem at Slopeside. We designed the home to be rustic, but not rough. All the important things in the home are brand new (leather furniture, mattresses, TV's, appliances, cookware etc.) with a few antiques thrown in for character. Its great to be able to walk to or from the slopes in 5 minutes. No parking hassles at the lodge or waiting for everyone in your group in order to drive home. The lifts run until 10:00 or 11:00 PM so if someone wants to enjoy the après-ski activities at the lodge, they can just ride chair #4 home. Likewise in the summer, you can walk down the ski slope to watch the fireworks or attend one of the concerts or festivals. The home is a perfect jumping off point for hiking or mountain biking, as the Massanutten Peak trail begins only 100 yards up the road.
