We were lucky to find and secure this special mountain home after falling in love (again) with Wintergreen over a hiking weekend in fall 2012. - We had selected and stayed in a VRBO rental property that was cute on-line, but dingy and run-down on site. Inspired to own at Wintergreen, we considered and visited a nice view condo, but were deterred when we couldn't escape the party next door. We vowed to create a haven in this beautiful natural enclave that would be serene, but also accessible, and necessarily comfortable and clean and welcoming... We sought high ceilings and an open feel bathed in natural light, with appealing views inside and out... And, we wanted to create a special mountain respite offering fabulous indoor and outdoor gathering areas... - Welcome to Whispering Oaks!
Please take a moment to read some of our reviews. We are fortunate and proud that Whispering Oaks has earned so many positive - even, glowing - reviews from lots of our thoughtful guests. We well appreciate that much can be learned from folks who have experienced the very getaway you are contemplating. Thanks so much for your interest Whispering Oaks!

Whispering Oaks is centrally located on a private wooded parcel in a distinctive neighborhood on the third hole of Devil’s Knob Golf Course (at 3800 feet, the highest golf course in the state), and offers three bedrooms with two full baths and two half baths. Our home features a bright, open floor plan and spacious bedrooms. The master is located on the first floor. Two additional upstairs bedrooms are situated to offer maximum privacy. One of these has a half bath, making the home especially well suited for several couples, or couples with kids. The bedrooms provide private accommodations for 7 - 8 and a Queen Sofa Sleeper in the living room sleeps an additional 2 people. (We suggest 7 - 8 as the 3rd bedroom top bunk will safely support an adult but may be more comfortable and accessible for a child/teen, so it depends on your party or how spry your adults are!...)
Upon entering the foyer, you will find to your left a convenient utility area. The inviting living room, with its soaring cathedral ceiling of inlaid wood and floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, opens to the dining area, which in turn flows into an immaculate, spacious kitchen. The whole first floor offers splendid nature views. The dining room provides comfortable seating for nine. An adjacent breakfast bar accommodates additional diners. Early risers can enjoy morning coffee at the breakfast bar, or opt for a seat in the cozy breakfast nook flanked by windows with idyllic morning scenes. The fully appointed kitchen offers everything you need for preparing snacks and meals. Please use our supply of coffee, and spices, oils and condiments/dressings.
Customary check-in is 4:00 p.m. and check-out is 11:00 a.m., but we gladly offer early check-ins and late check-outs unless precluded by conflicting reservations.
In appreciation for those who have sacrificed to defend our freedoms, and those who care for our Nation's heroes, we offer special discounts (10%) to all Active Duty Military, Veterans and Veterans Administration (VA) employees. (Offer not applicable with other rate specials or on holidays.)
Please call or email us if you have any questions about Wintergreen or Whispering Oaks. We welcome your contact! Let us delight in enriching your Wintergreen experience by sharing with you the offerings of our special mountain home.

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: We are a family of three - a retired State Probation Officer, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker formerly serving as a Suicide Prevention Coordinator - presently serving our vulnerable elders in Geriatrics - with Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Richmond, and a very special 12-year-old girl who loves family, friends, her dog Luke, monkeys, piano and gymnastics. We all love the outdoors and outdoor adventures.
Why the Owner Chose Chestnut Springs, Wintergreen, VA, USA:
Wonderful Wintergreen! - I love the outdoors and hiking, and I love a hiker. These affections brought me to Wintergreen in September, 2012. While my husband and I were hiking, I recalled weekend trips to the resort with my parents as a teen. Those fond memories of skiing, laughter, and hot chocolate kindled a desire in me and my husband to create similar life experiences for our young daughter. For us, Wintergreen is a place filled with energy and excitement, but our new home also provides a wooded getaway in which we can cleanse our souls. It is a lovely retreat where we can sit and enjoy the sounds of silence; it is a sanctuary for watching heaven’s snow gently touch the earth. We love our time on the mountain, and are pleased to share with others these precious pleasures.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
It offers the best of Wintergreen diversity. The location is quiet, private and tranquil. A short walk takes you to the serene entrance of the Shamokin Nature Reserve, to dining (15 - 20 minutes), and to the shuttle (7-8 minutes, up-hill, picturesque views). A short drive takes you to all of the energy and excitement of the Mountain Center. The summer temperatures on the mountain offer a nice respite from the heat and humidity of Richmond where we live. And, of course, there is the beautiful snow that falls in Wintergreen, when other parts of the state are getting rain. There are several cozy sitting areas with special views, and we love the open spaces and feeling so close to nature.
