About Chris Cox

I'm a Hokie alumni and father of 7 year old boy and girl twins. I currently reside in Richmond where I work as a physician assistant. My latest interest is mud/obstacle races; athough my 40 year old body is saying Enough!

Chris Cox purchased this house in 2009

Why Chris Cox chose Virginia

I grew up in the mountains surrounding Roanoke; and although, love Richmond, I often miss the mountains. Wintergreen is the perfect escape from city life. When I first purchased the property, I thought we would enjoy it most during the ski season. However, spring thru fall is my favorite time to escape the scorching temperatures of Richmond. In fact, the temperature is often 15 degrees cooler on the mountain top, and with the continual breeze at the cabin's particular location, you will think you've found heaven on earth! There's truly nothing more relaxing.

What makes this house unique

When I purchased the property 5 years ago, (three years after it was moved from another location on the mountain!) it was in rough shape. I poured my heart and soul into renovating it. Five years later, it has a new roof, skylights, stained decks, 3 completely renovated bathrooms and fresh interior and exterior paint. There is also new furniture throughout - a mantle, an antler chandelier in great room and log chandelier over the dining table. I hope you will come to love and cherish this very special vacation home as much as I do!

Wonderful cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend enjoying the cabin. We would not have changed a thing. The kitchen was stocked perfectly, the furniture was comfortable and the views gorgeous! It was great to be able to hike down to the Old Appalachian Trail from the property and then enjoy a spectacular view from the overlook. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Home!!!

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed staying at this house it was well stocked for our needs. The only disappointment was there was not a view of the mountains due to the tree coverage. We still enjoyed the deck and the outdoor fire pit. It was nice to arrive and the beds were made and ready for us to use. The house is lovely and very comfortable. Thanks Chris for sharing your home!!!

Excellent location and very cosey home!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated my wife's 50 with our immediate family. We had a great time - went to Blue Mountain Brewery and Devil's Backbone for lunch each day and cooked in each night. House is perfect and the main living area is a great gathering space! Expansive deck was also very nice and we enjoyed playing cornhole and grilling! Would definitely return!

The house was quaintly decorated in a mountain cabin decor! It was warm and inviting and well stocked in the kitchen for appliances and pots and pans for cooking. The deck was the place to hang out morning And night! The layout was great for our multi generational group. Thank you for a wonderful spring break get away!
