About Michael Kucharski

Our family lives in Cypress, TX and we love coming to the mountains to experience real seasons. In particular, we enjoy the cooler temperatures in summer. It is a great place to relax and have fun with family and friends all year round.

Michael Kucharski purchased this House in 2007

Why Michael Kucharski chose Wintergreen

We discovered the well-kept Virginia secret of Wintergreen in 2006, fell in love with the area and built our house there in 2007.

What makes this House unique

We have traveled the world but the Blue Ridge Mountains have a special place in our hearts and renting out our home there is our way of sharing our love of the Wintergreen resort with others in a setting which is relaxing, comforting and great for getting away from it all.

                                                              We loved our family vacation stay here. Absolutely beautiful. Everything you could possibly want (except a blowdryer..lol...take your own).

                                                              Michael was wonderful. He contacted us to inform us of bad weather coming and offered the house for an extra day at no charge. We would love to return and take advantage of the ski resort. Thank you for your home.

                                                              Enjoyable Family Get Together

                                                              Wonderful house;wonderful kitchen

                                                              This house is amazing. It was as described and the owner replied to questions quickly! 11 people were accommodated comfortably. The 3 teenage boys were downstairs and spent their time in the 'downstairs living room' mostly playing video games. The older adults never turned on the tv in the 'upstairs living room. Perfect!! Two adults had to do computer studies for work and the space accommodated many different activities for the 11 people.

                                                              I look forward to returning......


                                                              Lovely spacious home

                                                              This house is beautiful and spacious - it was perfect for our group of four families staying over a 3-day weekend. We realized that each family had its own separate bathroom and sleeping area. The kids loved playing in the downstairs area while the adults enjoyed the cozy living room area. The house felt secluded being at the end of a street but also very close to the ski slopes. One morning, we took a walk/hike down the trail at the end of the road and stumbled upon a beautiful waterfall. We had such a lovely long weekend in this house and everyone from our group agreed we should book it again next winter. On top of everything else, the host was great at communicating and responding to questions.


                                                              Wintergreen Resort, VA, USA

                                                              There are abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation available in all parts of Nelson County, from the top of the weathered Blue Ridge peaks down to the wide bends of the James River. These options include: hiking along the Appalachian Trail or to the top of Crabtree Falls (the highest cascading waterfall east of the Mississippi River), excellent canoeing or fishing on the James or Tye Rivers, or cycling on U.S. Bicycle Route 76 or one of the many Virginia Scenic Byways. Additionally, one of the boundaries of Nelson County is milepost zero of the Blue Ridge Parkway, which closely mirrors Nelson County’s northwestern border for 30 miles. Long established family orchards provide apples in the fall and hold fall festivals on the weekends. Other seasonal fruits available are peaches, strawberries and blackberries. The restaurants and dining options offer a variety of foods with many offering Virginia grown products and are also locally-owned and operated. Nelson County is also home to many thriving vineyards, three craft breweries, a cider barn, and a whiskey distillery. The Brew Ridge Trail has taken the craft-brewing world by storm and has become extremely popular in Central Virginia. Nelson County is home to Swannanoa mansion and is the location of Walton's Mountain made famous by the television show The Waltons. Visit Staunton to see unique museums and theatres including The Frontier Culture Museum - an outdoor, living history museum with exhibits and programs that explore the diverse old world origins of the earliest immigrants, and The Blackfriars Playhouse - the world’s only re-creation of Shakespeare’s indoor theater. Charlottesville is 1 hour’s drive away. Walking tours of downtown Charlottesville offer a deep look into early-American history. Visit the home of Thomas Jefferson at Monticello or his lasting academic legacy the University of Virginia. Dive into the history of American democracy at Montpelier, home of James and Dolley Madison - Father of the Constitution, Architect of the Bill of Rights, and America’s 1st First Lady. The Virginia Safari Park is located in Natural Bridge. Virginia's only Drive-Thru Zoo is a unique 180-acre animal encounter park, home to over 1,000 exotic animals and where visitors are encouraged to interact with the animals by feeding them with specialty grain directly through the car windows! Historical Richmond is a 2 hour drive away where you can enjoy museums, ghost walks, river cruises and Segway tours. Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens are a 4 hour drive away.
