About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Den, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

'The mountains are calling and I must go'... John Muir.

We welcome you to enjoy Wintergreen, to retreat, relax and renew. This home, located in the Wintergreen Resort has fabulous views that are visible from nearly every room in the home, abundant natural light and great gathering spaces for large groups. Want privacy? There are 5 bedrooms, each with it's own bath, for private resting places.

The home is on a lovely wooded lot on a very private cul de sac. It provides easy access to all the resort amenities, but is out of the congestion and traffic. The home is very near several trail heads and the hiking is wonderful. Great opportunities for observing the animals and birds that make Wintergreen their home. The serenity and views are delightful. The back of the home has large decks on two levels and very interesting rock formations that set the stage for taking in the view. Travelers with disabilities or young children will appreciate the flat lot and the easy access into the home.

Upon entry there is a vestibule with a full laundry room to the right. This floor has two bedroom suites. One with two twin beds and one with a king. Both bedrooms have spectacular views and private baths with double vanities. There is a large family room with a wood burning stone fireplace. The family room has extensive windows to enjoy the view and there is access out to the ground level deck.

Up one floor is the main level of the home. It has a large well equipped kitchen, a large dining area with seating for 12, a great room with wood paneled cathedral ceilings and a large stone wood burning fireplace. These rooms all have either windows or sliding glass doors that look out on the view. Be sure to enjoy the glorious sunrise from the great room while you are there. The deck with ample seating and gas grill are accessed from this level. There is a master suite with a king size bed and a private bath with double vanities on this level. There is also a cozy bedroom with a queen bed and a private bath. On the third level of the home you will find an additional master suite with a king bed, great views, and a private bath with a double vanity.

This home is perfect for a women's spa or tennis outing, a men's golf or skiing outing, a group of educators attending a Wintergreen Nature Foundation Event, 5 couples who want to vacation together but want their privacy and their own bathroom, or multiple families looking to share a vacation retreat. We will also work to accommodate church youth groups.

We look forward to welcoming you to our home at Wintergreen and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

About Helen Cronk

As a Coast Guard family, the Blue Ridge Mountains have always called us back as we lived in coastal areas all over the country. Our college age children have gone to school nearby and have very fond childhood memories of camping in the mountains of Virginia.

Why Helen Cronk chose Wintergreen

Wintergreen is centrally located in Virginia and offers all the things we love to do....snow ski, lake swimming, tennis, hiking gorgeous trails, great micro breweries and wineries and just breathing in the cool dry air up there.

What makes this house unique

Waking up to the sun coming up over the mountains while sipping coffee on the deck is a simple luxury here. Just a short walk from the house is the trail head to Lower Shamokin Water Falls, one of the many gorgeous trails at Wintergreen, is another of our favorite things to do.

Large Home Where Many Can Stay

  • 3 of 5

We looked for a place for four sisters and a mother and this fit the bill with everyone having their own bedroom and bathroom. Pros: lots of room, nice decks. Cons: lots of steps, furnishings well used, unreliable Internet and cable TV. I wrote the owner with some particular issues that I feel sure will be taken care of for the next tenants. We were rained in for the weekend (no one's fault), but because of this, we probably saw more of the inside than we would have otherwise! It's a good place for a large family.

Owner's Response: We appreciate when guests make us aware of things that need attention in our mountain home. We strive to create a relaxing, restful space for our guests and maintain the property the best we can. We are very involved and on top of issues that might occur. One of the problems this guest experienced was an inefficient dishwasher which we have since replaced. In fact, many of the features of the home are new...newly remodeled kitchen, new carpet, refurbished deck, new bedding. Yes the wood floors are worn but we think that adds some rustic-ness to our mountain setting. This is not a formal home but a comfortable home. In regards to unreliable internet and cable, as far as I'm aware, no one else, including myself has ever experienced this problem.

Nice size and location....

  • 5 of 5

Overall this house was a great deal... pricing was very fair, and location within Wintergreen was convenient to hiking trails... it's a bit away from the main resort center, but that was no problem. Communication with the owner was excellent. Helen responded very quickly to communication, and answered all questions. There were only two drawbacks: firstly, the house has no air conditioning, but it does have several ceiling fans, and floor box fans (the owner did inform me of this from the beginning). so, just be careful in July, as it can be hot, even on the top of the mountain. Secondly, other than toilet paper, and a roll of paper towels, there were no other basic items provided... in other VRBO or AirBnB units we have stayed in, the owner did supply bar soap, paper towels, plenty of trash bags, etc... not a huge deal, since the convenience store on the mountain stocks this stuff, but would have been nice to know in advance. In general, I would highly recommend this unit, and would definitely consider returning... thanks for a pleasant trip!
