We stayed at the Rimfire at the very beginning of the skiing season and we loved it. The indoor parking is an incredible perk. We rented a 1 bedroom standard condo which was small but very testefully decorated. The bedroom was indeed VERY small and there was about 1 foot clearance between one of the corners of the queen bed and the wall which was diagonal to the head of the bed. The kitchenette and living room were also small but we are not into large hotel rooms anyhow. The kitchenette was very well stocked, with lots of pans and pots. The gas fireplace did not work when we arrived as the pilot flame had extinguished but we called maintenance (on a Sunday) and they arrived within a couple of hours and fixed it. The room opened to the village with the balcony facing the street. This can be quaint as you feel you are in the midst of the action but I guess the noise in the high season will be an issue if you are a light sleeper and go there to relax. The rooms that overlook the parking in the back have great views of the mountains and the sunset. The common areas such as the hearth room are beautiful and cozy. The outdoor hot water bath was thoroughy enjoyable and also overlooking the mountains. There were only 3 exercise machines but this was not an issue as the place was semi deserted. You can access the locker room to store your skis directly from the street which is convenient although the lockers are small. The indoor connection to Starbucks is also great if there is a snowstorm outside and you want to get there in your sleepwear (not that I would though). Cons are lack of wireless, which is a problem in a town with almost no cellphone reception, only partially mitigated by the fact you can get wireless at Starbucks and that there is a wired connection in the room, thin partition wall between bedroom and living room and a nasty foul odor in the basement areas that give access to the garage. I have no idea where this was coming from. Overall, if you are going to Snowshoe, it is a great advantage to be in the village, as the slopes are only a few yeards away and the Rimfire is a great choice unless you are a light sleeper and you book in high season. We will definitely return there.
