We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with our family of 22. House was well stocked and Clean. Much to our surprise we didn't need to bring our own sheets. We have had to bring sheets to other property's for 10 yrs. I guess I missed that part! We will be returning!

We travel a lot with family and loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We travel several times a year across the US with extended family and usually end up with 15-25 relatives. This property was clean with a great location and provided all of the comforts we were looking for. The owner was attentive, responsive and extremely helpful!

enough room for the young ones but too cramped for adults

  • 2 of 5

In our party there were 14 of us (8 adults and 6 children) who stayed in the upper unit (the top 2 floors). The unit had plenty of beds for all of us, but it still felt tight and the beds felt old and too worn out. If we had 20 people in our party as the VRBO ad suggested it could fit then we would not have been happy at all.

The kitchen was smaller than expected and frankly it should have been bigger with an adequate size refrigerator. We had difficulty finding enough room in the refrigerator for our food. Luckily, we had brought coolers and we made use of them. The kitchen could have also used more utensils and other equipment. Also, the coffee maker and the stove were dirty. Probably the worst thing we dealt with is that the cabin had flies inside including dead ones on the floor.

The cabin had decent amount of room for sitting in the living room and eating in the dining room. We brought plenty of board games and everyone had enough space to play.

We loved the dining room tables. They were big but did not get in the way.

The outdoor deck was decent and the firepit was great.

Overall we had a slightly below average stay in the cabin. I think that the place is better suited for college aged people or young adults or for families with many children.

I highly recommend that the kitchen is remodeled with larger appliances especially the refrigerator and replace all beds with larger sizes but less in quantity to free up some space. Another suggestion is to decrease the bed count from 20 to about 12 to 16 so that it would feel less cramped. Also, turning one of the bedrooms into a multi-purpose room with games would make the cabin more attractive. The flat screen TV should be hung on the wall so that no one accidently knocks it over and to free up some space in the living room area. The deck could use some outdoor furniture.

About Kim Maxwell

As the saying goes for non locals…'we're not from here but we got here as soon as we could'. Only one of us was lucky enough to be born here. A passion for the outdoors brought the other three of us to West Virginia. That passion and the community of friends we have developed since keeps us here.

One of those friendships expanded to a two family business partnership in the ownership and management of this Chalet. We are family folk…we understand how valuable your time and money is, we want our accommodations to more than meet your needs. We hope your family and friends enjoy WV taking home some great mountain state memories.

Kim Maxwell purchased this chalet in 2013

Why Kim Maxwell chose Ghent

Winterplace is central to so much great outdoor adventure. Specific to skiing…Winterplace provides the best the Southeast has to offer including night skiing and a tubing park.

The Chalet, makes it easy for guests to take full advantage of all the ski resort has to offer as well as the greater region. Providing you a comfortable, group friendly space to relax, share meals and memories with friends and family.

What makes this chalet unique

In our view the chalet’s greatest strength is its easy access. Located just of Interstate 64/77, the parking area is large and convenient, the skiing is a step off the deck, access to world-class outdoor fun is minutes away, rafting, kayaking, climbing, mountain biking in the Fayetteville & New River Gorge area. Shopping and amenities are nearby, and the ski resort lodge is a short walk right across from the Chalet.

For more of the wild side of West Virginia we are a short drive from three thrilling National Park System rivers, two pristine lakes, six expansive State parks, multiple wildlife areas…some of the best outdoor adventures on the east coast. We are a short drive from the following adventures: whitewater raft, canopy tours, Zip lines, paintball, fishing, ATV rides, horseback rides, rock climbing, Mountain biking, paddle boarding, kayaking,…you name it!
