We are from Alexandria, Virginia and have been skiing at Seven Springs for over 20 years. Kurt is an experienced building contractor and built the house himself. I am a registered nurse and avid skier. We were inspired to build a ski house one year and were lucky enough to happen upon this property which has one of the most spectacular views in the Laurel Highland area. Our dog Luna, who has since passed away, was the inspiration for the name Luna’s View. She loved this place and came alive when she realized she was coming here. While we plan to enjoy our home in the years to come, we would also like to offer this incredible mountain experience to you as well.
