Shampoo/soap/conditioner in our bathrooms are also provided, for your convenience.
We were lucky to find and secure this special mountain home after falling in love (again) with Wintergreen over a hiking weekend in fall 2012. - We had selected and stayed in a VRBO rental property that was cute on-line, but dirty and run-down on site. Inspired to own at Wintergreen to avoid taking chances during rare opportunities for family vacationing, we considered and visited a nice view condo. But, we were deterred when we couldn't escape the party next door. We vowed to create a haven in this precious nature preserve that would be serene, but also accessible, always comfortable and clean and welcoming, and one that was immersed in nature... We sought high ceilings and an open feel, and appealing views inside and out... We wanted to create a special mountain respite offering fabulous indoor and outdoor gathering areas... - Welcome to Whispering Oaks!
Please take a moment to read some of our reviews. We are fortunate and proud that Whispering Oaks has earned so many positive - even, glowing - reviews from lots of our thoughtful guests. As always, so much more can be learned from folks who have experienced the very getaway you are contemplating. Thanks so much for your interest Whispering Oaks!

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 girl who loves monkeys, family, friends, 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.
