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 Central 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.

Spacious updated home for family get away

  • 5 of 5

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!

Just the escape we needed

  • 5 of 5

A perfect retreat after a few weeks of crazy in the city. Fun days filled with hiking, breweries, perfect weather, and long nights by the fire. Our only complaint is that we are leaving, but can't wait to come back.

A relaxing time with friends

  • 4 of 5

Our two families had a wonderful time relaxing at Cox Cabin! The location to the resort was perfect, roaring fires every night were perfect and fun was had by all! We also loved the short drive to the Upper Schmokin' falls, which was a quick, brisk hike to a beautiful waterfall!

Thank you for your warm hospitality! We hope to be back again next year!!

Cozy, well equipped mountain home that was enjoyed by all

  • 5 of 5

It was such an incredible family weekend and the house was very conducive to cooking in, relaxing, and enjoying the warmth of a cozy fire on a very cold, windy fall weekend. My sons were a bit disappointed in the lack of ESPN to watch college football but we girls enjoyed getting them to play cards, board games, and foosball- -all available at the house. The place was clean and well maintained, with hiking out the back and great views!

Great place to stay while enjoying the beautiful mountain scenery!

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 5 (kids ages 7,11,13) stayed for 4 nights in August. The house is very tidy and clean with fresh sheets on the comfortable beds and plenty of towels in the nicely decorated bathrooms. It was convenient to not have to pack linens and also to have a washer/dryer at the house. The house is stocked with lots of board games and movies and a fooseball table that was popular with our kids. While the DC area was under excessive heat warnings, we enjoyed hiking the shady trails of Wintergreen during the day and then sitting by the fire pit on the deck enjoying the cool breeze and stargazing at night. Easy rental process and worth a visit!
