About Nathan Van Orden

We purchased Briarpatch at Wintergreen Resort in 2010 with the intention of having a Family Retreat that could be rented on a limited basis. We hope other families will enjoy our home as much as we do.

Nathan Van Orden purchased this house in 2010

Why Nathan Van Orden chose Wintergreen

We chose Wintergreen because my wife grew up having a family home on the mountain and my husband had been a visitor to Wintergreen since its founding. We enjoy the fact that this is a four seasons resort with hiking, fishing, skiing and year around activity. We also enjoy being near the Virginia Horse Center and the variety of horse activities close to Wintergreen. We also enjoy visiting the many towns that are reasonably close to Wintergreen and find the central location ideal for day trips within the region. We hope you enjoy Wintergreen and Nelson County as much as we do.

Great Property

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time. House was clean and well furnished. There was plenty of firewood for the fireplace. We had 6 adults and 2 children and there was plenty of room. We will gladly choose the Briarpatch again for future stays in the Wintergreen area.

Great house for a fall weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was a great location, well furnished, and beautifully decorated. This is our third annual fall weekend and best house we have experienced although the other two were also very nice. Enjoyed a good dinner at the nearby Devil's Backbone Brewing Company on Friday night and spent Saturday sampling fruit wines and meads at the Hill Top Berry Farm and Winery, followed by a stop for lunch at the Wild Wolf Brewing Company, and some cider at the Bold Rock Hard Cider. Relaxing evening in the cozy tv corner to watch VA Tech football. We highly recommend this house!

A Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our week at the Briarpatch. The house is quite large and very well appointed. The owners have thought of everything when furnishing it. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a getaway in a beautiful mountain location.

Wintergreen Stay June 2016

  • 4 of 5

We were very impressed with the house. It was very spacious, and open, clean and the amenities were more than we had expected. The pictures don't do the property justice! The house location was perfect, at the top of the mountain nested in the woods, so that each morning and most afternoons we could sit in the leaving room with the open windows and watch the deer and chipmunks eat right in front of us. The house had ample wooded areas so we didn't fell that you weren't sitting on top of the neighbors. Just absolutely beautiful. The communication that we had with the owner prior to and during was great. He was very accommodating to requests and inquiries that we made. We only have a few points of feedback: (1) we didn't realize that dogs were in the home frequently. While we are animal lovers, we have a small child that is very allergic and her allergies flared up while we were there. It would be have been beneficial to know that a dog/dogs live inside the property from time to time. (2) the grill did not work. Even after replacing the battery and buying a new propane tank, the igniter did not work. (3) the patio (front and back) furniture wasn't clean. We ended up cleaning the front swing, but didn't bother with the back patio. (4) the beds were very firm. A few of us had difficulty sleeping on them. Despite these feedback comments, I want to reiterate that we had an amazing time. The location was easy to take walks, hike, go to breweries, participate in Wintergreen activities. The house was homey and inviting. Those of us that didn't have allergies would definitely rent the property again!
