Only Good Things to Say about Shadow Crest:

Shadow Crest was beautiful, private and extremely spacious - good spots for everyone to hang out; also some good spots to be alone. Nice back deck with comfy chairs/table for outdoor dining, plus screened-in porch where the grand kids ate breakfast, watching the deer grazing in the trees behind us. Generous, well-equipped kitchen and laundry. Cul-de-sac was private and safe for kids (and grown-ups) to play outdoors; plus great location to walk to farmers market and club house. Home was clean, organized, and well-maintained. All beds were comfy. Our family has never had a more relaxing, comfortable time together. Will return soon. Five-plus stars!


Our family appreciated all the thought you put into making your renters' stay truly enjoyable. Much appreciated

Choose Shadow Crest for a Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large family gathering at this beautiful home. Located in the Wintergreen Resort, a year-around skiing and golf resort, this house is centrally located and very convenient to the main road. There are also numerous breweries, wineries, and antique stores within a very short drive of the house. It is also within easy walking distance of the Nelson County farmer's market which allowed us the opportunity for an outstanding farm-to-table dinner prepared in this home's spacious kitchen. Equipped with five bedrooms, each with its own bath, everyone in our party was quite comfortable in the house. The owner provided great information and was quick to respond to questions.

Very spacious and accomodating home

  • 5 of 5

I traveled down to the area for a reunion of longtime friends. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The house was much larger than we expected, and included a great game room, screened in back porch with plenty of seating, and plenty of beds/couches to sleep on. We found everything to be perfectly clean and well maintained. The large kitchen really helped for cooking for over a dozen people! The owner is VERY responsive to all questions and concerns.

We will absolutely be looking to stay here again next year.

You will not be disappointed with this beautiful home. It is spacious, clean, and very well equipped for all of our your needs! Each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is a nice deck with plenty of seating for enjoying the outdoors. It is also in a great location near several breweries, wineries, and distilleries.

40 Shadow Crest, Wintergreen

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, comfortable and convenient for our needs. Our college golf team stayed here for a second consecutive year. Our conference golf championship was held at the Stoney Creek GC in 2016 and 2017, and plans to return there in 2020. We hope to stay at this same location when our event returns.

Welcoming home with great amenities in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a spring break week with two other couples and their children -- arriving and leaving at different times and overlapping in the middle.

The house is quite large with ample beds, bedrooms, futons and bathrooms. Plentiful pillows, sheets and blankets were provided and the beds were quite comfortable. There is an extra room (not pictured) in the basement next to the game room in which we set up the provided air mattresses for some children so that we could spread out even further.

The kitchen was well equipped and even included coffee filters, cooking oils and a spice rack! Plenty of seating is provided in both the kitchen and the formal dining room, and trash bags and dish soap was provided, making cleanup convenient.

The location in Nellysford, close to breweries, wineries and Blue Ridge Parkway hikes was perfect for us to choose our daily adventures, then return to grill out and relax on the porch or by one of the several fireplaces.

The only drawback was that trash service was not provided, so it was necessary to transport trash bags (and recycling) a few miles away to the community center. As long as this is a regular trip, you won't get caught with too many smelly bags on your last day.

Be certain to confirm checkout time with the owner. Our HomeAway reservation said 12:00, but checkout is really at 11:00 a.m. The owner offers an extended "full day" on arrival and checkout if there is no other rental back-to-back with yours, but be sure to clarify this before check-in or check-out day!

Overall, a wonderful experience. The owner responded very quickly to all queries and was a charm to work with.

Rent this house! You won't regret it.
