If you're like us, the Eastern summer was just getting to be to much. We've been to Snowshoe in the winter and it has always been reliably awesome. We're on an email list that sends emails about summer and activities they have so we decided to try it. We had a nice drive, stopped at NRAO - the radio observatory which is open every day and then went on to Snowshoe. We stayed at Rimfire again and it always pleases. The Wifi was useful but not overused as we had a great time taking the lift down to the lake, walking around, enjoying entertainment in the village plaza and visiting the Cass scenic railroad. The railroad has some cool activities like dinner trains and music which we missed as they were full so make your arrangements in advance. Cass is about 20 minutes from Snowshoe.
Rimfire 1 bedroom was lovely. Included a blender for drinks and we actually made pancakes for breakfast so it was a fully loaded kitchen. We had a western view on the 3rd floor and the sunset was amazing. This is a great building with a great hot tub and close to everything in the village. And there's a Starbucks on the first floor.
The best thing? It's so much cooler than DC! Cooler and the air felt cleaner and crisper. Like we were really getting away to a different world.More
