About the property

Chalet, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, Sleeps 9

We’ve got snow!! There's no time like now to plan a week or weekend get-away in the beautiful Laurel Mountains! Come up to ski, snowboard, snow tube, or just relax with a glass of wine in front of a cozy fire in the fireplace. Pack up the kids and join us in the mountains for some fun.

Book your ski weekend early so you won’t miss out on the fun. There are still prime weekends to choose, but they won’t last forever!

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

You can also check us out on Facebook by searching for Slack Shack.

Great Cozy Home located ~ 10 minutes to base of mountain

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends stayed here in early February 2017. The house comfortably sleeps 6 and has the ability to sleep 8 if the pullout bed is used. It's located just down the main County Line Rd, about 10 minutes from the base of Seven Springs. This house has everything you need, a fireplace, free wifi, stove, microwave, fridge, dishwasher, laundry room. Great place for a small group of people. The Real Estate group they use was very easy to work with and I highly recommend staying here.

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

  • 5 of 5

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.
