This was our second stay at Snowshoe for a long snowboarding weekend. The first time, my husband and I stayed at Rimfire (see my TripAdvisor review), which was convenient to the heart of the Village, but was also very noisy and had no on-site staff for any kind of assistance. So this year we were in search of a peaceful/restful, more upscale accommodation. We found exactly that in Soaring Eagle!
We stayed in #409, which was beautiful and looked exactly as pictured or even better. Check-in was seamless - we were greeted at the front desk and were offered assistance with our luggage. We found everything we needed in this perfectly appointed condo. The bed was comfortable, and I was actually able to get some sleep since I never heard a sound from another guest despite the busy weekend. Two of my favorite amenities include the heated parking garage with plenty of spots, and the locker room on the first floor to safely store your gear. South Mountain Grille restaurant is also on the first floor, providing a convenient place to grab drinks or a bite to eat. The hearth room is gorgeous and provides a warm meeting spot to get a drink or a nice place to sit with a good book. Just next door to SEL is a small ski shop, another bar/restaurant and also a lift ticket window, so while it's not super close to the main part of the Village, you're not completely remote either. And you're only a few steps away from several trails and the Soaring Eagle Express lift, so this truly is a ski-in-ski-out property. This is the only place I'll stay in the future.
I would only hesitate to recommend Soaring Eagle Lodge if you prefer to be in the midst of all the action. Getting to the Village shops requires either a long, cold walk, or a short ride on the shuttle. The enclosed/heated shuttle stop is conveniently right outside the SEL building, and the shuttles do come quite frequently. But if you're wanting to walk right outside and get to all of the shops and restaurants, this might not be the best choice. We highly prefer quiet, restful sleep over everything else!
