Overview

About the property

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

Near all activities, including hiking trails, swimming in either pools or 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

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I loved this house and the area. The house was clean and had everything we needed. The setting is beautiful. It is well situated for activities in and around Shenandoah and the Blue ridge parkway. There was plenty of room for 4 adults for cooking, eating and lounging. The owner provided all details we needed for our stay. We all took showers everyday and there was plenty of hot water. We would definitely stay here again if we are in the area.

In addition the price is right!

The property was clean and well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time at Deerview. It was nicely furnished with everything we needed and more. I would definitely go back in the future as there is plenty of things to do at Wintergreen.

Cozy and Comfortable Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this charming home in Wintergreen for three nights in mid-April and would happily stay again on return visits!

The home is easy to find, with or without GPS, and there was plenty of room for parking our two cars in front of the house. The house was easily recognizable, even from the main road.

All of the home was immaculately kept and there are all of the appliances needed for a comfortable stay, including a very efficient stackable washer and dryer, coffee maker, toaster, and dishwasher. The kitchen is fully stocked with plenty of pots and pans as well as an abundance of glasses, plates and bowls. There's also cabinet space available for storing any food you may choose to bring along. The bathrooms were clean and we experienced no issues with hot water. To the contrary, we both were pleased with the longevity of the hot water heater as well as the water pressure.

The linen service was ideal - there were plenty of sheets and towels which helped lessen the load of how much we needed to pack.

The deck, just off of the kitchen, sports a table or two and a fair number of chairs and is perfect for enjoying the sunset. While the nearby road is visible from the home, we didn't find road traffic to be intrusive or disturbing in, or out, of the home.

We particularly enjoyed the wood-burning stove that provided just enough extra warmth while we rested on the incredibly comfortable couch in the living room.

The home, pleasantly, feels somewhat secluded, but is only a short drive from plenty of local wineries, distilleries, and breweries. Devil's Backbone is closest at only about 15 or so minutes away. There is also a general store within 10 minutes that has plenty of items like paper towels, soap, a decent selection of food items, and a surprisingly good range of wine and beer choices for a shop of its size.

There is WiFi service available, though it may be a bit slower than some might be accustomed to. However, it was effective and especially useful for our phones which did not get reception in the area. We were able to make calls and use the internet efficiently and effectively on those devices.

Marcus made booking the reservation and obtaining details about the stay easy. While we did not have a reason to contact him, we felt confident that he'd be available if needed.

All in all, this spot is a steal for the price and location, and we would certainly choose to stay here again on future visits to Wintergreen.

Great value for the price

  • 5 of 5

The house was well suited for our needs and a great value for the price. The instructions from the owner were very clear and detailed and everything was just as expected. We thoroughly enjoyed the house and the amenities that came with it, and the house was also relatively close to the resort facilities. Overall it was a great weekend getaway for our family. If we go back with the same size group, we will definitely stay here again.

Great House on the mountain

  • 5 of 5

Marcus's house is great for the weekend ski trip! Wintergreen ski resort is so close and getting down the mountain was not a problem.

The house it self is a very nice. Plenty of space and entertainment to enjoy being on the mountains.

Thanks for letting us stay Marcus!
