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!

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!

The cabin was a perfect choice for our party of 5 adults. Every need was attended to.

  • 5 of 5

The setting of the cabin was restful, providing ready access to nature along with nearby places of interest.

We noted upon leaving that we would definitely return. Chris Cox made planning for the needs of the group easy.

We all slept well and had ample room for privacy as well as convening together in the combination dining room/family room. The kitchen was well supplied and every description of the cabin on line lived was accurate.

So family friendly!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Devils Knob! We had 4 adults and 5 children all under the age of 10. We had plenty of space and the home supplied plenty of fun board games and movies to entertain us. We enjoyed hanging out every night on the big deck and the kids enjoyed the outdoor games. We were about 5 minutes away from the pool which was nice. Chris was very helpful with all of our needs. We really enjoyed ourselves!
