How to Get There
Were invited to spend a weekend with my sister and brother-in-law. Even though it was the off season, as it was almost on the way home from the Smoky Mountains, where we were spending several days, we accepted.
The drive from Lynchburg was quite challenging, and got even more difficult for the last 10-15 miles, which were totally fogged in. The map on our nav system really helped prepare us for each upcoming turn, and it got us to within 15 feet of the front of the Lodge. A shadow about 30 feet to our right turned out to be Sis (in her car) who was waiting for us, mainly because there is no cell service on the mountain.
From there to the indoor parking and up to the room. Amazing! The room was a huge 2BR 2 bath layout. Three TVs, great kitchen, a wine rack with wine, a wireless router, washer and dryer, etc, etc. Have stayed at many properties over the years, and this could be the best ever. The lodge also had a great hot tub and fitness center.
Only 4-5 rooms were occupied and not much going on anywhere else at Snowshoe. Only one restaurant was operating - Foxfire Grill - and it was quite good.
The night before our departure there was a dusting of snow. Had concern about the drive down the mountain. Fortunately the road has been ashed during the night.
The Lodge itself was incredible. Would like to return the area when things are hopping.
The condo was very clean and roomy, with plenty of space for the four of us- two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchen, dining room, and a fireplace. There were literally only eight cars in the parking garage, so it was very quiet and relaxing. There are three hot tubs, a sauna, and fitness room. The hearth room is beautiful! It has many chairs, couches, books, and games so you can hang out and relax. The condo is new with upgraded amenities. The restaurant is closed in the summer and there is not a lot store options, so I recommend bringing supplies. It’s a little over a mile from The Village, which has many dining and shopping options.
This was our first visit to Snowshoe, and the Soaring Eagle Lodge was fantastic - you really can't beat the convenience and it was a great experience overall with only a couple minor "cons." We checked in on Friday at Mountain Top Check In, where they were also able to print our lift tickets we had ordered online. We then pulled into the underground parking garage and walked 25 yards to the elevators up to our room. They had luggage carts available if you wanted to use those.
Our room was well-furnished and clean, with lots of extra coffee stocked. Their ski lockers are great, and out the door you have maybe 10 yards to walk before you can put on your skis. The restaurant and bar on the 1st floor was decent -- OK food and very fast service, and wonderfully convenient. They have 3 hot tubs and a fitness room that nobody seemed to be using.
Our first ski day was rainy, and it was great to have a laundry room on the ground level with 4 great dryers to dry our ski jackets and pants for $1.00 (and a change machine right there as well). The concierge was helpful and the shuttle came right to the lobby to take us down to Snowshoe Village.
A couple minor things just to be aware of - they don't come to clean your room or exchange towels during your stay. That said, Housekeeping was very nice when I stopped them in the hallway and asked for an extra bar of soap and a fresh set of sheets for the pull-out bed. The pull-out mattress was quite uncomfortable in the living room, so my son just slept on the couch the 2nd night, which worked fine. And as other reviewers have commented, you can definitely hear the people above you -- so if you are sensitive to noise, I definitely recommend a 4th-level unit. But all in all, Soaring Eagle was fantastic and we would definitely stay there again.
I’ve stayed in many. Loggers Run, Powdermonkey, The Timbers, and here. This has been the best dollar to good experience ratio so far. It’s clean, classy, and secure. It is quiet at night and everyone keeps to themselves. Perfect. The teens enjoyed evening soaks in the hot tub and workouts in the fitness room. It’s has the feel of a “dedicated skiers” location. Everyone is up early to ski hard and everyone seems to come home, cook, and go to bed. You get a private feel even though you have neighbors. The condos are individually owned so it may vary what you get but ours was perfectly stocked with good appliances, cooking tools, and linens. Location second to none. I would definitely repeat my stay here.
We visited Snowshoe in Feb 2018. It was a busy holiday weekend but it was a wonderful family ski trip. Soaring eagle is a hotel that has privately owned units that are rented out. We reserved this unit online. The location is at the top of the mountain which give you great vistas to marvel at. The lobby of the building is beautiful. They have 2 huge fireplaces ins hearth room that overlooks the valley. Some nights they have live music playing. Also a wine bar in the hearth room. The sauna and hot tubs are a must visit when coming right off the slopes. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would definitely return here next year.
