“Best stay in Snowshoe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

My wife, young kids, and I stayed here for spring break in mid-March. This was a perfect place to stay. It was very quiet. Each night after dinner, we'd go down to the hearth room and play board games by the fire. On weekdays, we had the hearth room all to ourselves. After skiing we'd go to the hot tubs outside; again, we had them all to ourselves. The condos are spacious - we had plenty of room to spread out. Everything there still feels relatively new. You ski right out onto widowmaker or camp 99, which was never crowded. The only caveat - you have to take the shuttle or drive to get the kids over to ski school, which is in the village. But driving the kids was easy - they let you park your car for a few minutes right next to ski school, while you unload and get the kids checked in. Ask for a top floor room, either looking toward the soaring eagle lift or over the hot tubs. The views in both directions are great.

Room Tip: Ask for the top floor, looking toward the lift.

The condo rooms we had (3 bed and 2 baths) were in a class with 4 and 5 star hotels with magnificent views of the surrounding Blue Ridge mountains. The front desk service by Erica is knowledgeable and enthusiastic. But the best kept secret on the mountain was the massage therapist, Mollie Silver. The well-trained woman thoroughly knows what is best to heal the tired body of its aches and pains. We look forward to every trip so the whole family can be "cured" by Molly. She's the "Best of the Blue Ridge" in her field. She is there for the whole ski season and sometimes in Summer. Also, she also gives very popular yoga lessons.

This is the best place to stay at Snowshoe. I have stayed at a lot of places at Snowshoe; the problems ranging from no heat in negative degree weather to people smoking drugs in the room next-door. Soaring Eagle had none of those problems! There is a underground parking garage so cleaning off a snowy car isn't an issue. They also have friendly staff that bring up your luggage for you. The room was nice but wasn't very well equipped. This also might be the only hotel with any chance of getting any phone service. Another plus is it is very close to the slopes.

Room Tip: If you care about a view, (the sunsets are fantastic) get a room not overlooking the parking lot.

I wasn't really expecting much for a Snowshow property based on some of the reviews I read for some of the other properties on top of the mountain...we were really pleasantly surprised when our room was really nice. The hotel is clean and looks almost new. The main lobby is very large and has a couple fireplaces with games, etc. for the family to play in front of a warm fire. A small bar located right in the lobby is nice for the parents. The lockers on the basement floor (assigned to each room) are clean and spacious and a walk out the door is literally footsteps from the lift. The hotel restaurant also has very good food and a great staff. In fact, the entire staff at the hotel were really terrific. Free parking below the hotel is nice too. The only downside is the walls between the rooms and the hallways are a bit thin so people arriving late at night and raising their voices down the hall can wake you unless you're a heavy sleeper. Overall, we would highly recommend the Soaring Eagle for anyone staying at Snowshoe.

We stayed here again in Snowshoe over the Christmas/New Year vacation. Soaring Eagle Lodge is a wonderful place to stay if you are looking for a lovely building and are happy to ski and and out from downstairs! It's a short walk into town (10 minutes) or 2 minutes on a free shuttle (just make sure you have your gloves and coat zipped up waiting at the bus stop!).

We stayed in a third floor unit that overlooked the hot tubs last year and upgraded this year to the top corner condo that overlooks the village, lift and mountains. The condo was unit 404 on the 4th floor. The view from the unit is breathtaking! 180+ degrees of beautiful open scenery. The inside was also wonderful and is obviously well taken care of. A full kitchen with everything you can need. Great furnishings, (flat-panel TV's and blu-ray players in every bedroom!). Even a nice welcome message from the owners.

The hearth room at the entrance, now has a nice bar set-up with is great to just sit back and enjoy things away from the mountain. I would definitely recommend!

Room Tip: The corner condo 404 is amazing

You really have to love an adventure to stay here. It is in the middle of no where. However this is the nicest place on the mountain. The parking is underground, the restaurant is top notch and the front desk help couldn't be nicer. If you don't bring your food before you get there you may be in trouble. The rental company leaves you little or nothing to start with. No soap, 1 roll of TP and a pinch of salt. Otherwise you are on your own. Fortunately we were warned ahead of time and stocked up at the Walmart an hour or so away. The local grocery store has a small selection but no fresh fruits or veggies. A dinner in the village is a 2 hour wait. Make reservations for dinner at the restaurant before you come. Oh and we lost our power for 2 hours. We considered it an experience of a life time and since it took 10 hours to drive from BWI we are headed to Breckenridge this year. It is easier to get to.

Rooms and staff are great and the place is beautiful. If you are a skier who has lots of $$$ to burn and go in Jan or Feb, this is your place. There is a lift right at Soaring Eagle and restaurants to eat so you can make this place your base and never go to the Village.

But with that opulence comes price and this is the most expensive place to stay on the mountain. Again, if price is no concern, this is a great place. Another issue is that the Village is the central activity hub and this place is NOT within walking distance to the Village. You wind up paying premium price but need to take shuttle if you want to hit the comedy club or some of the bars in the Village. Lastly, the lift at Soaring Eagle tends to be one of the last to open every year. If you don't have the Soaring Eagle lift open, you have zero access to the slopes from your condo and MUST take the shuttle to the slopes.

Go to this place when you know the lift is open and you'll be happy. But there are other choices closer to the slopes that will also work for you
