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 Nellysford
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!

100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Highly recommended for a Weekend or a Week
We really enjoyed our stay. The hone was perfect for us and we found the hikes at Wintergreen to be excellent and the location perfect for going to the cities of Staunton, Lexington, Waynesboro and Charlottesville. If you like brewery and winery tours it is in the middle of everything.
Your Cozy Cabin Getaway
We rented this place for a week. I am sure this is good spot for a winter vacation, but not for a warm summer week. With no AC, the cleaning material use caused us to cough when we entered. My wife had to go outside for an hour. Need to get rid of whatever you are using. Maybe a carpet powder. I opened a few windows to vent. Door screens we’re either broken or would not close entirely. Then later, we saw the sign stating not to open any windows due to raccoons entering and tearing into trash. We spent the rest of the night sweating and left the next morning. There were ceiling fans. I emailed the maintenance service to be assured there was no AC, which I mentioned to them, but took a shot, I was told that it was mentioned in the description, SIR! I then emailed about cable TV, which was in the description, but no reply. The TV was reading it was not connected. There was Netflix. I paid a pet fee, thinking we were taking dogs. We did not. Ask for refund. So far no reply. The place needs some upgrading, but should be ok for a ski weekend. We left after 16 hours. I filed a complaint with VRBO, but was told there was nothing they could do. So I am writing this so you will know. We will not use VRBO again. Nice area, though.
Beautiful views close to trails! Great place to stay for skiing!
Excellent Wintergreen ski weekend!
We had a great weekend getaway at Wintergreen and this property was the perfect spot for a ski trip. It was very warm and comfortable and the thick carpets were great. The hot tub was excellent for relaxing. The owners and management company were very responsive when we had a question about the hot tub jets. The kitchen had everything we needed and was well stocked. We would definitely stay here again!
Nice Little House
This house isn't very updated, but it does include all the amenities you should need for your stay. We enjoyed our time here together. We were a little shocked at the location (seemed closer to things on Google Maps), but that is no reflection of the house. We didn't actually book for the resort, we booked for the wineries (oops). This was our first time at Wintergreen - it seems to be nice. Thanks.
Cozy and Comfy
We had a great weekend, house was warm and cozy and easy to find. The hot tub felt wonderful after a day of skiing! Thanks for allowing us to rent from you!
Hello we are sooooo Happy everyone had fun! Have a great 2019.
