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 Nellysford
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.

Memorial Day weekend with family
What a beautiful home tucked high in the mountains! This was a wonderful location for our extended weekend, which included seven young children. The layout and decor is lovely and perfect for a large family. We all had plenty of space. The kitchen is well-equipped, and we enjoyed preparing meals there.
We loved sitting outside on the beautiful decks!
Some activities we enjoyed: Lake Monocan, outside pool, hiking to the nearby falls, ping pong on the deck, visiting some nearby breweries and wineries. We fit a lot into a few quick days.
The owner, Michael greeted us with a welcome phone call and I certainly appreciated his hospitality.
We would come back to this home in a hearbeat! Thank you, Michael.
Perfect for our large group. Great host.
Great venue. Beautiful house and well described amenities on the site. We loved everything about this house. Worth the money for the weekend.
Had high expectations and they were exceeded!
This is such a special house! From the deck you have the most amazing view of the mountains and can hear the nearby waterfall. We went on several of the hikes nearby and couldn't believe how beautiful the area is. We took day trips to see Monticello and several vineyards.
The house is huge and has such a lovely vibe. Lots of interesting decorations and the light everywhere was fantastic! The kitchen is incredibly well stocked and organized. This area has something to offer everyone for each season! Springtime was a crowd pleaser with my family! So grateful for the chance to stay here!
April Family Reunion
A fantastic house for a large family in a fabulous location. An extremely well stocked house with books, games, dvds, kitchen equipment galore, decks, and an owner that responds immediately if any issue arises. The trail near house to a rather large waterfall was a highlight for family. New house with with new equipment and decor was outstanding. Loved all the sayings on steps and walls. Very comfortable house with space to spread out. Would not hesitate to rent this house again. Loved it.
This home was absolutely wonderful. We had family come from many different states to enjoy the beauty of Virginia and this house had everything we needed and more. It offered beautiful views, close hiking trails, and plenty of space for everyone. We enjoyed time in Shenandoah NP, downtown Staunton, the Frontier Culture Museum, and Monticello. This was the perfect place to come and relax at the end of each day .
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.
