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 Wintergreen Resort

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!

very nice, comfy, well-maintained. the beds are excellent, the bathrooms have obviously been upgraded significantly. all the amenities (except air conditioning?!) are provided. the resort has good restaurants and a beautiful golf course. would absolutely stay here again (provided it is not in the middle of summer and 95+ degrees... with no A/C).

Chris is a responsive host. definitely recommend.

Cozy Mountain Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Chris' property for my daughter's UVA graduation. It was comfortable, well maintained and had everything that we needed to enjoy family time.

Chris was very responsive when we accidentally locked ourselves out. We would definitely recommend this as an alternative to Charlottesville, much cheaper.

Beautiful home, conveniently close to resort

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently stayed at Cox's Cabin because we were planning to ski at Wintergreen. The cabin is even more beautiful when you see it in person! It has all the basic amenities in the kitchen, plenty of towels, blankets, etc. were available. In the days leading up to our trip, Chris sent very thorough instructions for arrival and departure, so the process of checking in was painless. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future, thank you for a great experience!
