Wintergreen house description

The ski season has begun!. Snowmaking is in full swing, and very cold temperatures have cooperated to provide a solid base for the early season.

This is not a fancy five star house, but you will be comfortable while enjoying your stay within a well equipped resort.

We're right off the main road near all activities and just a short distance to the slopes, Mountain Inn and the Conference Center.

Horseback riding is available in the valley at Stoney Creek. Rodes Farm offers pony rides for the kids, trail rides and they even give lessons.

If you're looking for extreme luxury, thanks for checking me out, but this is set up for families and kids, and you may want to check out the accommodations that rent for three or four times as much if you want more. We have a clean, comfortable home that has satisfied families for 30 years. Our photos will speak for themselves.

There is a $50 charge for one pet (if accompanied by a paying adult). Check with us if you have more than one.

This is a comfortable home at affordable rates. Wireless Verizon DSL Internet service is provided.

The corner fireplace is a great place to read or just snuggle by the flame. This is a gel fireplace that uses prepared containers for easy startup of the fire. Gel fuel is available at the house for an extra charge, or you may bring your own (Real Flame brand).

We are located within the resort, five blocks downhill from the Mountain Inn and ski slopes (walking distance for most people).

42 inch Plasma TV. Enjoy watching movies (DVD's including Blue Ray) and playing our PS3 on the wide screen. We provide 9 PS3 video games, or you are welcome to bring your own.

There are several wineries just a short drive away. A map with directions and phone numbers is available upon request.

Chestnut Springs Pool facility and Pavilion are minutes away from the house. The Rodes Farm pool, in the valley (about ten minutes away by car) includes volleyball court, kiddie pool, horseshoes and tennis. These facilities are available to my guests between Memorial Day and Labor Day, without charge.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1984

                          About the owner: I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2009. I worked as an Air Traffic Controller in seven different FAA facilities, including my home town of Providence, Rhode Island. I love pets, especially dogs, with cats being a close second. It's hard for me to pass by someone walking their dog in my neighborhood without stopping to pet them or scratch their ears (the dog - not the owner). One of my daughters has a cat, who I love to have lay on my lap, and purr while I'm brushing him. We are the original owners of this house at Wintergreen and have been enjoying the mountain since 1984. It may not be as fancy as some of the houses on the mountain, but the kids, grandchildren, and our pets always enjoy 'coming home'. Come on up and share the good times!
