The Appalachian was one of the best hotels myself and family ever stayed at, the staff was amazing, especially Cheryl at the front desk, she was such a pleasure to speak to, she always acknowledged myself and family by our names, she was so helpful.

Had a great experience here as a new skier. The mountain and hotel was great. Cheryl at the front desk desk was super accommodating and was soo patient with our new skier questions. She really set the mood for the whole weekend. I would highly recommend everyone to check out this spot. Thanks again Cheryl!!

This is an amazing place for snowboard and skiing, good slopes, nice lodging and real nice people. I ve been to the resort in two seasons and I'm planning to go again this month. For beginners and advanced, that is a place for winter fun!

I HUGE shout out to Evan at the front desk! He had no clue it was my birthday. This was a last minute getaway for me and my family. I walked into the resort hoping they had availability. They didn't - should have known it was a holiday weekend. Instead of turning me down, he was interested enough to have...

My family and I had a wonderful experience over MLk weekend. Upon arrival, we were received by Cheryl at the front desk, who got us into our incredible mountain view suite asap and ensured our comfort and satisfaction throughout our stay. She is a gem. We dined at the Hawk's Nest each night, and the food and service was incredible....

I stayed with my family in a studio with mountain views. It is exactly what we saw in their website. Very clean and comfortable and great location! The staff was very friendly and helpful, specially as I forgot my daughter ski jacket in the room when I left. Called Sherryl at the hotel lobby and she promptly send someone to...

The room we had was not as updated as I would have expected with the 200+ a night price tag. The fireplace didn't work and they said they would send someone up to repair it but that never happened. They have a shuttle that will bring you to town and the bar which was very helpful. The location is great...

My husband and I decided to go on a little ski getaway and were very pleased with the room and staff at The Appalachian. They were extremely helpful with all of our questions and always had a smile on their face. Everything in the room was very clean. Their ski lockers were complimentary and were able to fit all of...

We were supposed to stay here for 4 days but a bad storm kept us away. However, we made it up for the day and had an amazing time. Snowboard school was really great for my son, he took to it like a champ. We're planning to come back again before the season is over.
