Avoid the noise and clamor of condos and town homes, and be our guests at Whispering Oaks. Our tranquil, secluded, home is nestled in a beautiful, wooded setting on Devils Knob Golf Course. But, it is just minutes from the Mountain Inn hub restaurants/ shops/events, The Market, Discovery Adventure Center and Nature Foundation. The neighborhood pool and several hiking trail heads are within a short walk. Whispering Oaks is the perfect setting for an escape to the Blue Ridge Mountains with family and friends and is ideally situated for enjoying all of the adventure and wonderment of Wintergreen, as well as the rich heritage, shops and restaurants in nearby historic districts (both Staunton and Charlottesville are only 50 minutes away; Richmond, a mere hour and a half).
Whispering Oaks is located in a distinctive neighborhood on the third hole of Devil’s Knob Golf Course (at 3800 feet, the highest golf course in the state), and offers three bedrooms with two full baths and two half baths. Our home features a bright, open floor plan and spacious bedrooms. The master is located on the first floor. Two additional upstairs bedrooms are situated to offer maximum privacy. One of these has a half bath, making the home especially well suited for two couples, or couples with kids. The bedrooms provide private accommodations for 7 and a Queen Sofa Sleeper in the living room sleeps an additional 2 people.
Unlike many mountain homes, our driveway is level and provides ample parking for several cars, allowing for safe and convenient access in any weather. With only a few steps as you approach the house entrance, it is ideal for seniors and others who may have limited mobility.
Upon entering the foyer, you will find to your left a convenient utility area. The inviting living room, with its soaring cathedral ceiling of inlaid wood and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, opens to the dining area, which in turn flows into an immaculate, spacious kitchen. The whole first floor offers splendid nature views. The dining room provides comfortable seating for eight. An adjacent breakfast bar accommodates additional diners. Early risers can enjoy morning coffee at the breakfast bar, or opt for a seat in the cozy breakfast nook flanked by windows with idyllic morning scenes. The fully appointed kitchen offers everything you need for preparing snacks and meals. Please use our supply of coffee.
Whether enjoying skiing, snowboarding, summer tubing, cycling, the bungee trampoline, zip line, or other outdoor adventures, trekking one of the resort's breathtaking hiking trails, stepping out back and strolling Devils Knob Golf Course, or simply lounging in front of the warm fireplace with loved ones, Whispering Oaks is the place for you! It is also the ideal starting point for enjoying boating or water slides and pic-nicking at Lake Monocan, local wineries, shops, restaurants, music and arts events, and breweries. As you lounge comfortably by the fire, enjoying views, throughout, of the lovely open spaces and nature's surroundings, we invite you to casually attend to the meanderings of deer, ground hogs, birds, and the other abundant wildlife. We can't imagine a more soul-cleansing place to be...

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a family of three - a retired State Probation Officer, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker formerly serving as a Suicide Prevention Coordinator - presently, working with Geriatrics/CLC - with the Veterans Administration, and a very special 11-year-old who loves monkeys, learning, friends, family, piano and gymnastics. We all love the outdoors.
Why the Owner Chose Wintergreen:
I love the outdoors and hiking, and I love a hiker. These affections brought me to Wintergreen in September, 2012. While my husband and I were hiking, I recalled weekend trips to the resort with my parents as a teen. Those fond memories of skiing, laughter, and hot chocolate kindled a desire in me and my husband to create similar life experiences for our young daughter. For us, Wintergreen is a place filled with energy and excitement, but our new home also provides a wooded getaway in which we can cleanse our souls. It is a lovely retreat where we can sit and enjoy the sounds of silence; it is a sanctuary for watching heaven’s snow gently touch the earth. We love our time on the mountain, and are pleased to share with others these precious pleasures.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It offers the best of Wintergreen diversity. The location is quiet, private and tranquil. A short walk takes you to the serene entrance of the Shamokin Nature Reserve, to dining (15 - 20 minutes), and to the shuttle (7-8 minutes, up-hill, picturesque views). A short drive takes you to all of the energy and excitement of the Mountain Center. The summer temperatures on the mountain offer a nice respite from the heat and humidity of Richmond where we live. And, of course, there is the beautiful snow that falls in Wintergreen, when other parts of the state are getting rain. There are several cozy sitting areas with special views, and we love the open spaces and feeling so close to nature.
