About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bath + 2 Lofts - Architect Designed Custom Home

This unique architect designed barn style home was built by our family in 1992. After 21 years of holiday memories and lazy summer afternoons on the Mountain we've decided to put it on the seasonal rental market for the first time ever. In September 2013 the house was updated with new furnishings, fresh paint, new kitchen accessories and a new 55' HDTV.

Don't be fooled by the small footprint, this 3 BR, 2BA + loft lives much larger than most 1500 sq ft homes you've seen. In the master bedroom is a king bed, TV, walk-in closet, deck and covered patio. All bedrooms and loft are open to the main great room space - a large open living and dining space with 15' beamed ceilings, floor to ceiling french doors opening onto the back patio, a wood burning fireplace and the flat screen TV. The generous dining area features an antique wood dining table with seating for up to 10 people. Many a holiday meal was shared here with close friends and family. Opening to the dining area is the simple but spacious galley style kitchen with a charming breakfast nook, perfect for morning coffee or full on breakfast for 4.

Bedroom #2 is located above the master and accessed by stairs from the living area. It's small but cozy with its antique queen bed. Above the kitchen is the kid friendly bedroom with two twin beds served by a ships ladder.

Over the main entry is the sunny loft with large SW facing windows where afternoon light streams into the main living areas. This loft has a full size bed and a small closet. It works great as either an office or an extra sleeping area.

The 2 bathrooms each have full size tub/showers and windows.

A full size washer and dryer is provided in the utility room opposite the kitchen.

Two separate parking areas easily accommodate four cars with the two upper parking spaces adjacent to a ramp for ease of access to the main floor through the side door. There is a single step between upper landing of ramp and deck.

The location is convenient but private on a quiet cul de sac only a short walk to the golf course. A few steps from our back patio is a path to the Appalachian Trail (10 min hike) and spectacular views of the Shenandoah Valley. For skiing the Mid Atlantic region's top rated ski area is a 5 minute drive down Wintergreen Dr. so you can leave fresh tracks in the morning and beat the crowd home for apres ski by the fire.

Wonderful house and locale

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of August in this house to escape the hot, humid, rainy days of the Florida summer. We couldn't have been happier with the house, the location and the weather. The house had everything we needed +++. The mornings were cool and crisp. The afternoons were sunny and pleasant. The neighboring houses can hardly be seen or heard. The golf courses and hiking trails were all we needed. However, if golf and hiking are not your thing there is plenty to do and see in Nelson county and beyond. We loved the open architecture and mountain decor. We would not hesitate to recommend this house to anyone.

Quiet mountain retreat

  • 5 of 5

The 'barn' was the perfect family getaway. Cozy but comfortable enough for my kids and parents. Gerri could not have been more welcoming, responsive and accommodating. Great location, close to Chestnut Springs pool and playground, as well as close to the nature center (my kids love!). The best part is the short hike from the back door to Indian Point overlook, which we did daily. Be aware that (as stated in the vrbo summary) all rooms but the master are fully open to the main room so we had to plan a bit to get the kids to bed, but it still worked wonderfully for us. We would stay again. Thanks Gerri!

Great location and amenties

  • 5 of 5

Recently took a short trip to Wintergreen, and canceled another location in order to book this one, and glad I did. Allowed my dogs, which was a huge plus. Place is less than 5 min drive to the slopes. House rules are reasonable. It was clean. Seeing deer in the backyard was a pleasant surprise given how close the houses are to eachother. I would stay again. Owner/Property manager was very quick with responses.

Great location, lovely cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Kitchen was well stocked, house is bright and sunny and CLEAN. Perfect location, within a few minutes of the slopes; also a very private lot. It was lovely having washer/dryer available, too. The only adjustments we would recommend is to place a bench at the side entry door for putting on/taking off boots and shoes. ;) Maybe a hot tub. Overall, met our needs exceptionally well.

Owner's Response: Thank you Brian and I love your suggestions. That's a great idea about a bench to take off your shoes/boots. I'll start looking for one. Hot tub would be great...but that might be a few years down the road:)

A Happy Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for something different for our Family Thanksgiving celebration this year. My wife suggested that we go to Wintergreen, the rest of our family had never been there before. As we started our search for a vacation property, this property came up and my wife said "That's the one!" and so ended our search. She was so correct and the listing of this house is everything that it claims; CLEAN, cumfy, cozy, warm, rustic and a real sense of home. We are foodies, so it was great to find an updated kitchen with NICE pots, pans and knives. The owners were extremely helpful and responsive to our questions and concerns. Our Thanksgiving celebration was topped off with deer at the back door and on our way out, my wife's dream came true when we spotted a Black Bear on the hillside. He just sat there and posed for us, truly spectacular! We plan on returning in Autumn to catch the fall foliage.
