I found this house on www.vrbo.com/32253 (Vacation Rental By Owner). It has pictures on this website, and the prices for each season. This property is located approximately 9 miles to the top of Snowshoe Mountain. The house has everything you need. Although they could have supplied additional knives and a wisp. It is a 3 bedroom (queen size beds), 2 baths (shower bath combo), with a fully stocked kitchen, and washer and dryer. The kitchen had food items that you might forget to bring yourself (spices, Ziploc bags, etc...). The kitchen has a full size refrigerator, and stove with a vent-type microwave. A big island in the middle of the kitchen was useful for putting gloves and stuff.Two of the b...Read More

We had never been to Snowshoe Mountain, and it was a great experience. To get there, make sure you follow the Snowshoe Mountain website directions: 219 is curvy, and coming from the south, I recommend using their directions. If you are planning on going, sign up for emails. Most are advertisements, but one contained coupons for lift tickets (half off) and discount equipment rentals. These discounts may only be in March.From the bottom of the hill to the top, it is about 7 miles. It snowed while we were there and roads were plowed. There was plenty of parking close, but if you go other times, you will have to go a long way to park. I saw buses transporting people around but never rode them....Read More
