Slack Shack near 7 Springs & Hidden Valley - Book your ski weekend now!!


Property Details

Updated: Oct 23, 2016
Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

Autumn is here at last! There's a crispness in the air, and the leaves, as always are spectacular! There's no time like now to plan a week or weekend get-away in the beautiful Laurel Mountains! Golf, hike, bike, or just relax with a glass of wine in front of the fireplace or around a crackling fire in the firepit. Pack up the kids and join us in the mountains for some fun.

It's not too soon to start thinking about ski season. Thanksgiving will be here soon and not long after that, there will be snow on the mountain! Book your ski weekend early so you won't miss out on the fun.

We are only a short drive from the Seven Springs Resort (2.5 miles) and Hidden Valley Four Seasons Resort (10 miles).

A large wrap-around deck is also available for relaxing and enjoying the beauty of the Laurel Mountains. A fire pit adds to the fun and relaxation! Circular driveway has easy dual access and room for at least 5-6 cars.

About the Owner

We built this chalet in 1979 and it's been a labor of love ever since. We live in the Pittsburgh area, so we are able to maintain and closely monitor the property, allowing you to enjoy your time in the Laurel Highlands.

The Slack Shack is quite possibly the cleanest property we have stayed on through VRBO. It is only about a 5 minute ride to Seven Springs. The recent updates are lovely and we quite enjoyed the welcome bottle of wine left by the owners! Thank you for such a great stay!

Clean, cozy house

We really enjoyed our stay at the Slack Shack! The house had everything we needed for our girls weekend getaway. The location was perfect, just a short drive down the road to get to Seven Springs ski resort. I would definitely stay here again.

We Love the Slack Shack!!!!

  • 5 of 5

This is a comfy, clean & cozy mountain home. I love it here! Love the lighter brighter bathrooms and bedrooms! The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs. Has a warm inviting fireplace that's perfect for those cold winter nights. Also love the tv in the master bedroom. It's just a hop skip and jump from Seven Springs! I also love that it is super close to Glade Pikes Winery!!! 🍷 This is the perfect place to relax and unwind! Definitely recommend it to everyone! Perfect place to make many beautiful memories with family and friends! Can't wait for my next visit to the Slack Shack!

Good for golf getaway

  • 4 of 5

8 of us stayed for a golf weekend at Seven Springs and Hidden Valley. The house was ideally located for the weekend. The house was very comfortable and well furnished. I would recommend getting a 2nd propane tank for the grill, to ensure there is always at least one full one around. We ran out of propane while grilling our dinner and it would've been a 40 minute round trip to go into town to have it filled. It would also be nice to have a little more exterior lighting. We would've liked to be able to play cornhole/beanbags into the night, but there was not enough light to be able to do it. Other that those two minor complaints, it was a great stay, and I'd recommend the Slack Shack for others looking to get away for a golf weekend at Seven Springs.

Owner's Response: There is a second propane tank kept in the basement which is the only safe place to keep it. The basement is locked, however a call to the real estate office would have prompted them to contact us and we could have provided information allowing the tenants to be able to access the basement and the second tank. We will also investigate the possibility of placing both tanks under the grill if there is enough space to do so.
