About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Owning this house for 33 years has allowed me to give low rental rates to my guests. Older house, but it is comfortable. Three night minimum for $100 per night will expire on December 21. Please check my rate schedule for pricing during your requested time. If you only want to stay two nights, the rate is still $300.

Near all activities, including hiking trails, swimming in either pools or a fresh water lake and just a short distance to the Mountain Inn and Conference Center.

If you're looking for extreme luxury, thanks for checking me out, but this is set up for families and kids, and you may want to check out the accommodations that rent for much more if you want additional luxury. I have done a lot of work on this house myself, and you can tell a professional contractor did not do some of the work. If you can get by that - you won't have any problem staying here. When I get around to finishing my improvements, I'll do it, but I don't know when that will be. Please don'[t come here and complain about my Do It Yourself projects! The house is old, but it is clean, comfortable and has satisfied families for 33 years. The photos will speak for themselves.

NETFLIX! Enjoy a great selection of movies or your favorite TV shows using Netflix my streaming attachment. A guest account is available if you do not have your own Netflix account. I also have Encore, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and The Movie Channel if you want to surf cable for movies.

If you get tired of movies, have a blast on the dual mike karaoke machine and over twenty karaoke CD discs with all types of music. The karaoke may be hooked up to the TV for large screen lyrics.

This house is located five blocks from the ski slopes. The shuttle bus does not stop on my street because we are so close, but you may call transportation, and they may pick you up if they have time (no guarantee though).

There is a $50 charge for one pet (if accompanied by a paying adult). Check with me if you have more than one.

This is a comfortable home at affordable rates. Wireless Verizon DSL Internet service is provided.

42 inch TV. Enjoy watching movies (DVD's including Blue Ray) or games on PlayStation 3. I provide PS3 video games, or you are welcome to bring your own.

There are several wineries just a short drive away. A map with directions and phone numbers is available upon request.

Horseback riding is available in the valley at Stoney Creek. Rodes Farm offers pony rides for the kids, trail rides and they even give lessons

Chestnut Springs Pool facility and Pavilion are minutes away from the house. The Rodes Farm pool, in the valley (about ten minutes away by car) includes volleyball court, kiddie pool, horseshoes and tennis. These facilities are available to my guests between Memorial Day and Labor Day, without charge. Sherando Lake in the George Washington National Forest is 6 miles away (about 10 minutes).

About Deerview

I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2009. I worked as an Air Traffic Controller in seven different FAA facilities, including my home town of Providence, Rhode Island. I love pets, especially dogs, with cats being a close second. It's hard for me to pass by someone walking their dog in my neighborhood without stopping to pet them or scratch their ears (the dog - not the owner). One of my daughters has a cat, who I love to have lay on my lap, and purr while I'm brushing him.

We are the original owners of this house at Wintergreen and have been enjoying the mountain since 1984. It may not be as fancy as some of the houses on the mountain, but the kids, grandchildren, and our pets are always comfortable and have a good time.

Deerview purchased this house in 1984

More than worth it

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our time at this property and the resort as well. There was plenty to do with things at the house even when it rained. The wifi was sufficient to support 3 kids surfing and playing and my wife and I playing and working. The TV had many premium channels, there were games and some movies already there and we enjoyed the Karaoke too. While many think of Wintergreen as a winter get-away, don't neglect the summer. There were plenty of trails to explore. There is a pool and a lake available to use - although we did not use the pool or lake when it was sunny as it was too cool after the rain, for our tastes to go swimming. We brought our own linens (as we're a bit spoiled) but the beds were very comfortable. I spent each morning walking the dog (yes, Marcus allows pets) for 0.25 m (actually a bit less) to drop off our trash each day (as requested) and pick up breakfast sandwiches at the 7-11 type of store near the top. We tried out a few of Marcus' recommended restaurants, and liked some and passed on a few others, and will recommend Chirios a few mile away with excellent deli style sandwiches. We also enjoyed the geo-caching at Wintergreen, and would have (if not for the rain) tried the tubing or zip lines. (I did not know you could go tubing in the summer - but in Wintergreen, you can.). All in all, this was a very enjoyable stay and more than worth it!

Seeing some of the negative/low reviews, after staying there, I have to agree with Marcus that he describes his property accurately. I saw no issues with his work or property. (This is from someone who has worked as a maintenance supervisor in a large complex.) I guess if you want 5-6 diamond service and a single room, then pay for it. For us, the price we paid for a WHOLE HOUSE to ourselves was well worth it.

As to what (if anything) Marcus can improve on, the only thing I can think of is possibly adding a 2nd portable AC unit in the other upstairs bedroom. At present, there's a whole house (wall) AC unit downstairs that cools most of the house and a portable AC unit in one of the upstairs bedrooms. Initially, I was concerned because it was very warm when we got there (recall I said we were a bit spoiled) but the whole house (wall) AC unit was sufficient for us (even though we like it real cool). Adding another unit to the remaining upstairs bedroom is probably not necessary and would probably only be used on those rare very warm days.

Thanks Marcus for a wonderful time. - Steve & Kim

All the comforts of home! We will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this house and we loved it just as much. The layout is great for our teenagers to have a bit of privacy upstairs, but also has a large common area for family game time. The kitchen is well stocked for preparing meals. Beds and linens are comfortable and there are plenty of extra pillows and blankets for those cool nights. The whole house is comfortable and cozy and just minutes away from activities and trails on the mountain.

The house was extremely clean upon our arrival and everything was in great condition.

It's always a pleasure to speak with Marcus, he is always quick to respond and answer questions.

It's difficult to find a vacation home that suits the whole family and welcomes our dog, but we've hit the nail on the head with this house. There isn't anything negative I could say about it. We're already looking forward to our next visit!
