Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom 3 bath with mountain views and hot tub

Luxury close to the slopes and golf! Includes Wintergreen resort passes which give our guests access to resort amenities that are closed to the public including the Spa/Fitness Center, Tennis Courts, Devil’s Knob Golf Course, Devil’s Grill restaurant, etc. (fees apply for these amenities). We also provide you with our parking pass which grants you access to member slopeside parking lots during Ski season.

This luxury home has been completely renovated, including a new large deck with Hot Tub. Floor to ceiling windows take advantage of the gorgeous mountain views, it is like living in a tree house! Each bedroom has its own bath.

Downstairs you will find a large living area with soaring ceilings, a huge stone wood burning fireplace, dining table for 8-10, and a totally modern kitchen with everything a cook could possibly want. There is a bedroom with 2 twin beds on this level. The sectional has a pull out queen bed with brand new mattress if you need it. The lovely screened porch is pure heaven in the summer months. There are tons of board games, puzzles, DVD’s, books, even cornhole for the family to enjoy. Bean bags invite the kids to snuggle up in front of the fire and enjoy a movie.

Upstairs you will find the master suite and a bunk room, both with lofty ceilings and windows galore. The master bath has just been renovated with a rain shower head and heated tile floors for cold winter mornings. The master has a king bed and the bunk room has 2 sets of log style bunks, featuring 3 twins and a double size futon. There is a Wii in the bunk room, with lots of games to entertain the kids after a day on the slopes. A skylight in the bath and tall windows let the kids see the stars at night.

The Deck has a sitting area with couch and lounge chairs, table for 8-10, gas grill, as well as the new hot tub. Enjoying the stars is so wonderful at night! During the day, you can hear the stream on the Old Appalachian trail below the house.

Each bedroom has a flat screen TV and there is a large flat screen with surround sound in the living area as well. Wifi works great. There is Air Conditioning, should you need it, though we rarely do as the house gets such wonderful mountain breezes. The mattresses are all new, along with high quality linens and towels. The kitchen is loaded with spices, oils, all the things you don’t want to think about having to bring on vacation. We have rented many homes over the years and we know what renters want and have tried to make our house as comfortable for guests as possible.

Our driveway is very flat, and one can get into the house with only 2 small steps. This, plus the downstairs bed and bath make it easier to travel with those who may have trouble with stairs.

Our house is located at the top of the mountain, near the Spa, Devil’s Knob golf course and restaurant, tennis courts, and lots of hiking trails. The ski slopes and Mountain Inn are only a few minutes away, and the member parking pass makes parking at the slopes a breeze.

We enjoy this house during all seasons, each is unique and wonderful on the mountain. We are happy to provide tips on activities, restaurants, hiking etc., just ask – we know you will love it as much as we do!

About Michelle Finn

We live in Richmond, VA where 2 of our children attend high school and our third just started college at the University of South Carolina.

Michelle Finn purchased this house in 2007

Why Michelle Finn chose Central Virginia

We enjoyed vacationing at Wintergreen so much when our children were little that we decided to buy so we could spend more time in the mountains.

What makes this house unique

We wanted a house that was definitely a mountain house not a city house and we found it! We fell in love with the unique architecture of this house, as well as the lovely mountain views. The large double lot insures lots of privacy. Hiking trails are close by -waterfalls, the Old Appalachian trail, nature is everywhere! No matter the season, every day is special up at our Wintergreen house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We very much enjoyed our stay and had a lovely weekend. We were very sad to

leave.

Well appointed beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

My family and friends stayed in this house for 5 days for a ski trip. We didn't need to bring anything but food! This was the most well-equipped house I have ever stayed in! Everything from the spice cabinets, cookery, cornhole, hair dryer - you name it! It is a beautiful house very well maintained. The only suggestion I would make is to bring extra towels for showering. Other than that - you will have everything you need! The owner is very responsive and so nice. I highly recommend staying here as it is very convenient to the resort.

Owner's Response: Dear Lori - I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay. Thank you very much for mentioning the towels - we recently changed house cleaners and I had no idea they were not leaving out enough towels. I will be sure to fix that for future guests. Thanks for your kind words, Michelle

Great Holiday vacation

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group and was clean and tidy. We loved the view, making a fire every evening and watching football after a long day on the Wintergreen slopes. We have great memories from our second trip at the Finn house. Thanks for sharing your cabin.

Top Shelf Home & Hospitality at Wintergreen!

  • 5 of 5

This property proved to be the ideal home base for a long weekend at Wintergreen and exploring Nelson County with close friends. The property is on a quiet street and tucked back from the road. The home feels instantly familiar - its open, bright and very welcoming. The views from the deck and family room are outstanding, looking through the woods and down the valley past Wintergreen. Its a great place to relax and hang out when you're not running around taking in everything the area has to offer. The home is well maintained and well equipped, its such an easy place to settle into.

Michelle is a gracious and thoughtful owner who took a genuine interest in the things we wanted to do for the weekend and then demonstrated her keen knowledge of the area with some great recommendations for hikes, local sites and sights, and restaurants. This was a small gathering of dear friends from college days and our first introduction to Wintergreen - we left with great memories and a debt of gratitude for such a welcoming place to stay. Would gladly return and happy to recommend!

Perfect Mountain Home For Entire Family or a Girls Get-Away Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautifully maintained and furnished. The décor is warm, welcoming and inviting - it feels like home not a cold rental property. And It is sparkling clean from top to bottom. As a family we have stayed in a lot of rental homes and until now have never given a rental property 5 stars. The kitchen is clean, utensils new, pots and pans good quality, plenty of plates and a great selection of barware. The den is family perfect with a comfy sectional sofa and bean bags, which the kids loved. The bathrooms had plenty of towels, even extra, and there were extra towels for the hot tub. We wished for nothing during our stay. The view of the mountains from the deck is lovely and so is sitting on the cushioned outdoor furniture. Everything about the home is top notch.

Michelle is the best concierge I've ever met. She asked what we liked to do and then made suggestions of the best hiking, wineries, breweries and views. She has put together an extensive book of things to do and see in the area - no need to wonder about the best of anything because if it's in her book it is the best.

Wintergreen is a great location for hiking, wineries, breweries and relaxing. You don't have to leave the property to get to great hiking and mountain views. You can walk from the house to amazing hikes and views. Take Michelle's advice and take in the beautiful sunsets - the perfect location is in her book.

This mountain home and Michelle's customer service sets the standard for others to follow.

Thank you for a wonderful long weekend in your home.

Owner's Response: Jill - I am humbled by your gracious review, thank you! I am so glad that you all enjoyed your stay, and that you noticed what we set out to do when renting our home - we want our guests to feel like they are staying in a family home, not a rental. I was happy to share all of our family tips for hiking, restaurants etc. that make Wintergreen such a special place. We look forward to having your family back again. Michelle

Absolutley Incredible!

  • 5 of 5

For starters; Michelle's house is beautiful, clean, plenty of parking, lots of open space to really breath in the mountain air and just relax. The pictures do not do it nearly as much justice. The main living room has plenty of windows. This, combined with the fact that her house is located on the mountain with a perfect view make for the best natural light. My morning cup of coffee has never tasted so good.

I'm from Baltimore MD originally and moved to Winston Salem NC. I wanted a place to meet my family back home for a weekend and Michelle's house was perfect! Wintergreen is exactly the same distance from Baltimore as it is Winston-Salem. We love to hike, camp, fish, golf, and enjoy the outdoors. This house perfect for all of these things and much more!!!

But if relaxing isn't what you came here for, there is PLENTY to do at wintergreen, and you have been given access to it all. Michelle made everything about our stay easy and hassle free. You get access to the same amenities as resort members. There are enough passes for 8 people which is perfect because that's how many people this house sleeps. Free pool access, access to resort restaurants, spa treatment, access to the golf course. These are just a few of the long list of things available with these resort passes.

There is always something going on every week in the area. Michelle made sure that I knew the current events and game me a link to the local newsletter. During my stay, Devil's Backbone, the local brewery, hosted a huge beer festival with over 3000 beers on tap. We were surrounded by gorgeous mountains on all sides, enjoying our craft brews and live music. My family weekend was the best.

We stayed during the summer and had the time of our lives! I would love to see what Wintergreen is like during the winter and I wouldn't stay anywhere else but Michelle's house.

-Ben Palacpac

PS. thanks again Michelle!

Car: necessary

We are located at the top of the mountain, about a mile from the Devil's Knob golf and tennis facility and Wintergarden Spa. About 5 minute drive down to Mountain Inn and ski slopes. Very private but still close to everything the Resort has to offer. Several hiking trails within walking distance.
