About Sarah Davidson

We are an active traveling family with 7 vacation properties for rent. This two bedroom slope side condo, plus a studio, one-bedroom, 3 bedroom condos and a 4 bedroom house on the golf course all in Wintergreen, Virginia, and two ocean front houses in Oak Island, NC . Vacation Year Round in one of our wonderful homes! We offer 10% discounts for customers who stay in two our homes in the same year. We are pet friendly because ours are a part of the family. We love to ski and play tennis as a family, but travel frequently for Sarah (Mom) who is a frequent triathlon competitor. The girls all learned to ski at Wintergreen and all have gone on to compete for Wintergreen! Out of these three home Wintergreen is by far the most special to us. We have spent the most time here as a family and in doing so instilled a love in being together. We believe it helped us raise our children to make better choices as they grew and spent more time away from us.

Sarah Davidson purchased this condo in 2003

Why Sarah Davidson chose Wintergreen

My husband Lyons grew up in Virginia and skiing at Wintergreen. This mountain instilled in him a passion for skiing, so he chose Univ. of Utah for his undergrad and a chance to ski more. It was our dream to own a Dobie condo at Wintergreen. Now our girls have all learned to ski here and compete for Wintergreen race team. I'm from NH and I'm reminded of my home when I'm at Wintergreen. We ski in Virginia and its cool in the summer, what more could we ask for. I love being at Wintergreen in the Spring, Summer and Fall as much as the Winter. It is always 10 degrees cooler and has that mountain feel to it. We play tennis daily at WTGs amazing tennis facilty with several clay courts. We also love hiking year round, but Harley our dog, loves this the most! Wintergreen is our refuge, its our family get-away. As I say to my husband, 'it brings me great joy.' Hope it brings you joy as well.

What makes this condo unique

We chose Dobie for the sunken 'pit' with windows surrounding the fireplace and all day sunshine! It is so close to the mountain Inn we felt safe letting the girls go there alone. We can ski in and ski out and play on the mountain the rest of the year. We walk to the restaraunts and the children ski home when they are tired, we aren't fetching them in a car. It is so convenient and safe. Additionally, we think we have one of the best views on the mountain. In the summer we can hear the concerts from our balcony and on the 4th of July we step outside and watch the fireworks show above.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

My three sons--ages 14, 12, and 8--and I come to Wintergreen every Labor Day for a boys' weekend of fishing, hiking, and kayaking, and we loved this property. My boys already asked to stay here next year.

First, the location makes this property. We were able to walk across the top of the slopes to the restaurants and the main Wintergreen building within minutes. There are always people out walking their dogs, or attending events (there was a cross-country race and a small crafts fair this weekend), so we ended up stopping and chatting with owners or other renters, and it gives the feeling of belonging to a pleasant, close-knit community. I have stayed at seven or eight other properties at Wintergreen, and never experienced this before. The location also means the views of the slopes and valley are stunning, and the property has a great porch with a table large enough for four, maybe five, people to have lunch or dinner while enjoying those views on a nice day.

Second, the condo has a sunken sitting area in front of the wood-burning fireplace, on the wall facing the slopes, meaning you can sit by the fire and enjoy the view after a long day of hiking, skiing, etc. We loved relaxing there at the end of the day.

Those two things--the view and the fireplace sitting area--made our stay extraordinary. In addition, there is a HUGE television in the living area, so we had a theatre-like experience watching Harry Potter movies at the end of a tiring day. The furniture in the living area is well-made, attractive, and comfortable.

The property probably isn't right for someone with kids, one or more of whom need their privacy; the second bedroom has two sets of bunkbeds without a lot of extra room. But if you have kids that can share bunkbeads, the condo, although not huge, has plenty of room. I brought my three boys and two dogs, and did not feel crowded.

I highly recommend this property. Except for next Labor Day weekend, because some guy will probably already be staying there with his three sons and two dogs.

Owner's Response: Wow! That was a really lovely review and I appreciate all your kind words and great descriptions as well! You mentioned all the things we LOVE about our Dobie condo! There are always dogs or kids or people outside on the slopes year round and we agree it does feel like a community and more importantly in this day and age a VERY safe community. I am so glad you and your boys had great weekend, it certainly sounds like fun to me! What a wonderful tradition! Thanks again and we hope to have you back soon. Take Care, Sarah

Cozy property with great outlook.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this condo.

It is in the perfect location for outlook and views right over the valley. It is also easy walking distance to restaurants and some great trails suitable for children.

The house is a great layout with the bedrooms far apart. The master had a fantastic king size bed.

The sunken fireplace was great, we spent most of our time here. There are 3 large TV’s which we didn’t require due to the hikes, fireplace and views.

Kitchen and house are well equipped.

Only recommendation is a couple of flash lights in the house. The power went out about 6pm one night through about 2 am. The fire kept us warm which was a bonus.

Thanks again,we will be back.

Fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

I came here with my boyfriend and our chocolate lab for a short weekend. This condo was the perfect size for the three of us. We were fortunate to have a beautiful day Friday to explore close breweries and enjoy the gorgeous views. Saturday was rainy and thankfully there was plenty of firewood to keep cozy! The covered porch was wonderful to enjoy the rain and fog. There were two restaurants within a 5 minute walk during the break from the rain. We did have a little issue with cable but the owner was quick to respond.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your weekend. Sorry the weather wasn't more cooperative for hiking.You are right the restaurants are nice and close to make walking over even in rain (or snow) very quick. I must say Nelson County Cable can be sketchy, but they are always quick to help us when there is an issue. Happy you had a good weekend and we hope to see you back! Sarah

A nice, relaxing mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet, comfortable getaway at a reasonable place, this is it. My family and I had a great time - plenty of room and clean. The condo has a nice corner balcony patio that you can enjoy meals outside. We love the cozy, sunken fireplace nook with panoramic window views of the Blue Ridge mountains. Also, the condo is next to a walking trail that takes you to the top of mountain and various Wintergreen Resort amenities (pool, spa, cafe, golf) We appreciate that it is pet friendly, too. Thank you for opening up your home. Our family will definitely stay again.

Owner's Response: Suzanne, I am glad you enjoyed that balcony it definitely adds to the "fun" of the house. I love coffee out there in the morning or wine in the evening. It is the perfect spot to watch the Blue Ridge Express unload skiers in the winter and in the summer when there are bands playing we have a front row seat! Of course it is pet friendly we can't imagine leaving our 4-legged family member behind! Just very pleased you enjoyed the condo and all Wintergreen had to offer as well! We look forward to your return! Sarah

Consistently great

  • 5 of 5

2nd stay here, which is already an endorsement, was very relaxing. Beautiful fall weather, DBB music festival, and the first fire of the season made for an awesome weekend. This condo is great - stop looking - book now.

Wintergreen sits on the side of the Blue Ridge Parkway where sight seeing is amazing and so is the biking. The Resort has numerous hiking trails and a growing Mountain biking system of trails. Other attractions at Wintergreen include: zip line, huge gaming center, bungee jumping for kids, indoor and outdoor pools. Also, there are numerous wineries in the area and now several breweries too. Wintergreen is located about 30-40 minutes from Charlottesville and the University of Virginia and all that this area offers, including Thomas Jefferson's Monticello!
