Highland House is a very good place to stay if you are wanting to be in the middle of the Village. Easy access and clean. We stayed in a studio room and it was very small. There was a nice balcony overlooking the village. I watched all of the people passing by on the zip line. We were very close to numerous restaurants and activities.
We were there is early March 2019. Super convenient location to shops, eating establishments, etc and slopes. You can step out the back door and board or ski onto runs. Accommodation were nice enough & clean. Maintenance was attentive and prompt to respond to a small issue (with gas fireplace.) View is GREAT (we were in a slope side room.) While there IS storage for skis & boards, etc. (it is a locker, assigned to your unit,) it is only a tall, metal locker that was not anywhere close enough to being big enough for our group of four people. Not a huge deal, but it would have been nice to avoid lugging gear up to our 4 floor room & back everyday. The complimentary shuttle to Top of The World and Silver Creek were great. We used it extensively. We will definitely be looking at Highland House for our next trip to Snowshoe!
Staying in room 410 in highland House. This is our first time at Snowshoe. Picked Highland House based on location and reviews saying “deluxe” rooms are good. Check in was easy as was unloading. Parking across the street is easy and convenient. The room itself is a one bedroom condo. It is extremely dated and in need of an update. It is definitely tight for a family of four if staying more than 3 days. That said, the location is great! It is near the pool and walking to restaurants, slopes and kids world. That helps with the old feeling of the room. I had higher expectations for the room based on other reviews but would consider staying again based on location and price.
Highland House is in a great location with beautiful views and super convenient ski in, ski out, but the place could use some attention. The flat screen is missing from the common area, the hot tub has been broken for weeks, the elevator broke down, our unit has an antiquated tube TV (for Super Bowl weekend no less) and the crusty list goes on. The owners at the end of the hall rudely held their parties and phone conversations in the hallway. For the cost, it did not meet our expectations. The best thing I can say about it is its location in the Village. Other than that, a huge disappointment.
I stayed in a nice studio apartment that had nice village view. Room was comfortable and walkable to village restaurants, lifts, and free parking. Ski rental in building next door. You park across street but unloading is covered in basement of building. You check in at central reception for Village down street. Highly recommend
We stayed at Highland House about 10 years ago and liked it a lot but life got too busy and we took a break from skiing. We went back in February and rediscovered our love for Snowshoe! We liked it so much we went back again in March to the best conditions that we have ever skied. Highland House is right at the top of the Ballhooter lift and is convenient to the slopes as well as the amenities of the village. We stayed in a one bedroom regular unit in February. It was nice and right on the slope with a full kitchen, gas fireplace, a great view. We just returned from a 4 day stay in a deluxe one bedroom and it was also very nice. The biggest difference was the comfort of the bed in the deluxe room. It was much softer and dramatically more comfortable. We had a slopeside room with a beautiful sunrise view. We could watch the skiers go by when not on the slopes and sit on the deck and look out at the beautiful mountains. The studios are fine for 2 or 3 people. We originally booked one of these but upgraded because we had too much stuff in the room. They also do not have a full kitchen but are still very nice.
When you arrive there is a loading/unloading area at the Brigham Center. The area had hard places to find temporary parking, but we managed by parking off to the side (since there is a shuttle loading station near). They provide push carts to load your luggage, but there is no bell hop so you have to do everything yourself, which was tiring after a 6-hour drive. There is an underground hallway that leads to the elevator where the rooms are. After unloading you'll have to cross the street and park across the street. Free lockers are a nice perk to store your skis and gear. An informal lobby area with fireplace and flat screen TV are slope-side. We were a little disappointed that are room just had a kitchenette (while it includes cups, bowls, spoons, knives, coffee maker, blender, and toaster), there are no stoves or pans. Good thing we cooked a salmon dinner and stuffed peppers at home and used the microwave to heat up our meals. But the fireplace was very nice and the smart TV very clear. Checkout is 11am, which is a little bit of work of you want to get a last day of skiing in. We also had to leave our car across the street to make sure we had parking (in otherwise wheeling the carts across the street with all our luggage to load the car up). Checkout is automatic and your keys will not work after 11am. Our skis and ski gear was locked in our lockers, but we were locked out of our ski stuff. Luckily another guest let us in at the ski storage dinner located slope side entrance. Nice outdoor spa area with views of Snowshoe's famous village clock tower. But the spa may be filled with younger people who love to drink beer. So if you do use the spa go earlier rather than later. You will also get the incredible Split Rock Pools located a short walk through Snowshoe village, included for free. A heated outdoor pool, pool deck, water slide, sauna, and whirlpools. WiFi is amazing! Every room has its own router. Didn't receive 5-star because elevator seemed a little slow, difficult to find in-person customer support (we just saw some maintenance guys fixing the elevator and housekeeping, no front desk help), no help with luggage, thinking a lot of how to pack all your stuff without getting locked out. Book village side view, there's not really too much on the other side except a ski lift and a snow base (true you can see mountains over yonder, but you have mountains on village side, too. Village side is more entertaining.
We stayed in a Deluxe Studio in the Highland House during January 2018. Each condo is decorated/furnished differently because they are all individually owned. Ours had a queen bed, small table, and two dining room chairs. Ideally it could have had sitting chairs or a small couch in place of the "bistro" set. However because the places are owned individually it could differ based on what room you get. The room itself had a tiny kitchenette (AKA- microwave, coffee maker, toaster, mini fridge, and small sink). This was not a huge issue as there are many food retailers very close by. We had a gas fireplace (which was so lovely!) and a large porch (probably the same square footage as the condo) with a village view. The other side of the condos would have had a slope view. The porch would have been nice if it was a different time of year. The location is excellent as it is literally ADJACENT to the slopes with a storage locker for ski gear right off the slopes. While we were there the weather was frigidly cold (polar vortex the US experienced), so it was very nice to escape from the cold easily. It is also closely located to many of the eateries and Starbucks in the village. Frankly, I think it has the best location in the village. They do not have a traditional maid service, but I think you can pay extra for a daily one. This was not a problem for us. I know that we will be back to Snowshoe and I would not be surprised if we stay in Highland House again. My biggest complaint was that I wish that the resort had a better description of what you get per each room type.
Highland house is a nice lodging choice. Centrally located in the village and has ski in ski out wit lockers available included with the nightly rental. The house has a gas fireplace which is relaxing and provides heat. The unit also has a balcony. Lodging also gives access to split rock pool. There is an indoor outdoor pool with a dry sauna and two hot tubs. The deck is heated so that makes a nice chance to relax after a day on the slopes. Split rock is open until 9 pm. If you miss that there is a hot tub at the hotel open until 11 pm. The hotel also has a fitness centre in case you didn't workout enough on the slopes. Nice hotel near everything including restaurants and bars. I also recommend bringing stuff up to the room since there is a fridge. The only issue is that the bed is soft and the room is bright. I would stay here again. Free wifi is offered which is fast and individual routers in the room. Which is good as reception is very weak up there.
We returned Snowshoe and stayed at Highland House again purely because of its location, and ski in ski out convenience. Would like to stay at Allegheny Springs but no one-bed room available even when we booked in Sept/Oct. This site has not reception service, you check in at Top of the World, get your key and that is. If you encounter any problem, e.g., our friend's key turned out didn't get them into their room, they have to go to Allegheny Springs to get the key card fixed. This time we got a slope view room of 305. nicer than the last room we stayed few years ago. The layout is the same, but the upkeep was a bit better in this room. However, still noisy refrigerator, soft as butter sofa bed and though the view was nice, be prepared to be awoken by snow trucks or some vehicle went up hill before dawn, every day.
