You have access to all outdoor pools on Wintergreen resort as well as owner parking for the Mountain Inn skiing parking lots. We are NOT club members. This means when you stay with us you will NOT have access to the fitness and aquatics center. However, daily family club pass are available for purchase through the resort with spa service purchase. The only way to get access to these amenities is to book through Wintergreen Resort or to have guest passes from a member.
We value transparency in our listing with no surprises as you check out, so please note that like MOST VRBO properties offered on Wintergreen Resort, we base the price per night on the number of guests. The base price is for 2 guests and a $15 nightly fee is added per person above that. This model allows us to accommodate smaller groups as well as larger ones. This offsets the increased costs and labor that comes with hosting a larger group including utilities, linens, toiletries, and preparations we provide. This will be reflected immediately in the VRBO total when you enter in the number of guests. For this reason and so we supply the appropriate linens and supplies we ask that you accurately mark the number of guests.
Also summer guests please note there is no AC in the home like most homes on the mountain. It stay pretty comfortable year round on the top of the mountain where we are located. Fans and open windows are quite comfy!
