Mountain Lodge Condos
Reviewed 23 February 2012

I stayed at the ML for 3 days Thur-Sun. The lodge itself is perfectly situated, out the door and on the slopes! Its central village location is perfect! You can tell when you get there this is one of the original properties compared to all the new facilities surrounding it. But, this is not a bad thing. The prices are economically friendly. The room was nice; 1bdrm, full kitchen (with utensils) overlooking the slopes. The check-in was a breeze at the Snowshoe Inn. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I asked for a room overlooking the slopes and they gave it to me.

There’s not much night life at the resort regardless of what they advertise. The village shops are a 2-3 min walk. There's also a convenience store for your usual sundries and refreshments (5min walk). Once you park, you shouldn't have to use your car unless you want to trek the 6mi back to the bottom of the mtn. There is a restaurant and lounge in the lodge. The restaurant is good, the servings are huge. The drinks are awesome. Overall, a very nice place to stay on the mountain for a few days. For me, I probably wouldn’t stay more than 3-4 days. Nothing against this resort or what it offers; that's just me and how I plan my ski trips.

As far as skiing; GREAT!!!! It’s an upside down mountain meaning you start at the top. The runs were nice. Some terrain for every level. If it’s windy (and snowy) as it was on Friday, it can get pretty icy and very cold. But don’t let that stop you… layer up.

Lastly, if the weather is bad, it can be a little tricky getting in and out. The roads are narrow, hilly, and winding. Just drive with care.

TIPS -
1 - Be sure to shop at the store at the base of the mtn before going to the resort, theres a price and selction difference at the top.
2 - Try to get a room on the 3rd floor to avoid the boots, skis, and floor noise

Enjoy Snowshoe.

These condos are great for the slopes. Step outside the door and ski away. I had a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. The kitchen is small but has full size appliances including a dishwasher. The food is pricey at snowshoe so bringing your own food is strongly suggested (by me).

I stayed here with my husband and son in February of 2012. This was a nice cozy Mountain Lodge. We booked a slope view, and when we checked in and made our way to our room we discovered we were given a parking lot view. With a phone call and a visit to the in house desk the room was corrected to our satisfaction. Each room in this lodge is decorated differently, so if you find one you like- stick with it. Room 232 was a cozy decoration while room 236 looked a little more modern. Our view was wonderful, the slopes and one of the lifts. We noticed that the 1st room we had had TONS of coat hooks, but the second room had a rack for your skis and absolutely no coat racks.
You could step out and ski right away. You are only a short walk (1-2 min) from Split Rock Pools and the village. This area is hopping on the weekend, but is very light on the weekdays. If you are a beginner that wants to hit the slopes- go Monday –Thursday. Also, I was advised that the Cupp Slope at Silver Creek is the best run for a beginner to go down. Not all green slopes are created “Easy”. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a slope view

Stayed in Mountain Lodge over the weekend AFTER MLK week. That was key, as it wasn't all that crowded since there wasn't a holiday. You've probably all seen the reviews of Mountain Lodge, and most are quite accurate. I'd sum it up like many others - NOT a really, really nice place, but roomy with an awesome location. You can't beat hopping off the Ballhooter lift and into the back door for lunch, and you can't beat walking just a couple hundred feet to Starbucks or other Village stuff.

Here are some of my favorite and least-favorite things:
I liked the actual condo - A very roomy 2 bedroom.
I didn't like that the master bedroom had a window to the interior hallway. I had to hang up blankets (in addition to the drapery) to keep the hallway light out.

I liked the proximity to the slopes.
I didn't like my location in the building. Tip: Ask for one of the units with lower number to be on the wing of the building next to the slope (e.g. number x01-x39 or so). Your feet will thank you if you wear ski boots.

I liked the balcony. It's small, but it's a nice place to keep skis overnight and see how the weather really is before heading out.

The kids' play area was great. Mine are 6 and under, and the little playground was a welcome indoor distraction while it rained one morning.
Don't count on the exercise equipment that they show in all the pictures. There are two or three tired machines that aren't plugged in. Better idea - ski harder instead. :-)

I really liked the common areas. They have some cool areas in the corner of the main lobby with high-top tables surrounded by windows, overlooking the slopes. Good spot to have a cold one if you happen to come off the slopes a little early.

Overall, stay at ML if you want a ski-in/ski-out spot with easy access to the Village. But, don't expect the Ritz-Carlton.

Hope this helps!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the wing of the building that's closest to the Ballhooter lift.

Ten feet outside the door of mountain lodge you can drop your skis and head down the hill from the top of ballhooter lift. This is a great location to begin and end your ski day. Mountain lodge is more of a budget facility with some weird quirks. They have a stone fireplace but they do not light the fire until 5 p.m. The bedrooms have a sliding glass window to the outside hallway the purpose of which remains a mystery. These windows do provide complete access to the conversations of boisterous drunks and rowdy children. The water tastes terrible but overall the accommodations are fine for family use. The staff is especially friendly and helpful and the room is convenient to the village, the church, and the pool.

BEWARE we had our ipod touch stolen from our room at Mountain Lodge on 12/22/11. There was no forced entry. We feel the thief had to have had access to our room. And the incident took place just shortly after the maid service entered our room. It was the only item stolen and it happened to be sitting out on the bed in plain view. So if you stay here, don't bring anything of any value. The management acted almost comatose and offered us no help nor compensation. They really could not have cared less.
