About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Leave your stress, worries and hectic life at the bottom of the mountain because 24 Fox Sparrow Lane is a cozy space where you can rest, relax and enjoy the company of your friends, family and serene surroundings.

The living room has a wonderful fireplace that heats the house up after a long day of skiing. We have fantastic outdoor space to enjoy the local wildlife - deer, raccoons, groundhogs and a huge red headed woodpecker often visit. There is a upper deck ideal for a cup of coffee and a book, or just a nap. The house has a wrap around deck with outdoor dining table, chairs and a hot tub. There is even a large screened in porch on the lower deck level.

After a long hike in the woods, a tough day on the links, or a skiing adventure the hot tub is the icing on the cake to sooth your hard working muscles.

Our home is perfect for a family getaway. With 3 TVs there is plenty of space for everyone to do what they choose. It also makes a nice retreat for 2-3 couples to get away for the weekend.

The Winter garden Spa has wonderful services and is within a mile of the house. Devil's Knob Golf Course and Grill is within walking distance...downhill on the return trip!

Our kitchen is well stocked and if you choose to cook a meal you will find all the equipment you need right down to a great selection of spices.

About Donnie Harper

I am hard working, but I love to play equally as much as I enjoy my work. I went to UVA and I've enjoyed cheering for my alma mater's football team since the mid 80's. I enjoy golfing at as many courses as I possibly can and love to be outside.

Donnie Harper purchased this house in 2002

Why Donnie Harper chose Wintergreen

Wintergreen is a beautiful location. Every time I go there it is relaxing and peaceful. Sometimes the hardest decision (and only decision I make all day long) is whether to go in the hot tub. I am grateful to have such a special location so accessible to me where I can visit and truly unwind.

What makes this house unique

I enjoy the long and often challenging walks, golfing, skiing. In the summer it is especially refreshing to climb the mountain and get away from the heat and humidity of Richmond where we live. The temperatures are 10-14 degrees cooler in the summer, and of course colder in the winter. But this also means we are often the first ( and only) people to see snow in central Virginia. I almost always enjoy a massage from Wintergarden Spa!

A holiday dream in the mountains!

Thank you for this wonderful week in Wintergreen! There was everything in the house what we needed and even did not thought about it. We enjoyed the pool after hiking on the trails in the resort and the mountains and also the grill. We highly recommend this beautyful place to our friends and families and would love to come back!

We had a great time. The house has everything you need and is accessible to all of Wintergreen’s amenities, and the local breweries and wineries. The hot tub was a plus too!
