About The Owner

In addition to owning these this beautiful mountain resort home, we are avid skiers, golfers, cyclists, and college football fans! In the summer we enjoy boating with our friends and family. A few times each year we travel to Breckenridge, Colorado to ski and visit family and friends.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2003

Why The Owner chose South Mountain

After spending many years renting and owning vacation properties on Snowshoe Mountain, WV, we decided to build our dream mountain retreat that would house our extended family all at once.

What makes this estate unique

Mack's Shack is located in the Hawthorne Valley section of Snowshoe Mountain and is just a 10 minute drive to all the major ski lifts. We have enjoyed many summer activities on Snowshoe Mountain over the years such as mountain biking, horseback riding and rafting. Beginning the Thanksgiving holiday each year and throughout the winter months, we have enjoyed winter ski vacations with friends and family while enjoying all of the amenities that life "on top" has to offer. Snowshoe Mountain offers fine dining, shopping, alpine skiing, snowboarding, snow mobiling and tubing.

Beautiful Home and Wonderful Owner Response

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 16 people stay in this beautiful, private home very close to the slopes at Snowshoe. We skied, tubed, hiked and enjoyed the amenities of the home, including the pool table! We had a few minor issues and contacted the owner, who responded very quickly and could not have been nicer. We are already planning to stay here for our annual ski trip next year. Highly recommend this house.

Magical Wedding Weekend at Mack's Shack Estate

  • 5 of 5

We rented this beautiful estate for our daughter's wedding. The house was amazing, beautifully decorated, clean and the views were breathtaking. It was our first VRBO rental and I was a little nervous. Sharon was wonderful with helping me make the reservations, giving me tips on how to get to the wedding destination, which was at the Raven's Golf Course, only a mile or two from the house. This golf course is the most beautiful venue for a wedding. We wanted a big house for all of our family to be able to stay together. There is an overflow house on the property and was rented by our friends. I even held the rehearsal dinner at the house. It was a truly magical weekend and I would highly recommend this rental. We would love to go back.

Lovely large home at base of mountain

  • 5 of 5

I'd highly recommend this beautiful home for bigger groups or families. It's set up really well for large groups and the 3 gas and one wood burning stove are a nice touch. It's nicely situated with a lot of privacy. We had a few issues when we arrived but Sharon was very prompt in resolving those and they didn't detract from our stay. Although we were active, it was nice to have satellite TV with all the major stations. The internet could be faster, but that may be par for the course in this mountain area.

Enjoyed our stay!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We love the look and feel of the house. It felt like home. Great kitchen and living spaces. The owner was a very gracious host and welcoming.

Being addicted to our cell phones and tablets, interenet connection were challenging. Maybe a higher being was telling us to get offline and go enjoy nature and each other's company.

I would highly recommend the house.

#1 place to stay in Snowshoe!

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from three wonderful nights, getting together with our five children and their families. Mack's Shack was even better than expected. You feel at home as soon as you pull up in the driveway. The home is incredible and the property was perfect for the children (young and old) to enjoy sledding. The views were spectacular....surrounded by nature. A piece of heaven. Best of all our entire group had such a wonderful time. This was the first time in 5 years we could get everyone together and they left saying they couldn't wait to get together again. We will definitely go back! Thank you Sharon for making all this possible!!
