About the property

Early Winter Special ends Jan 11 (Mon-Thurs $100, Friday and Saturday $145).

Welcome! Come up and relax and enjoy our mountain home. We affectionally call our mountain home "Mars Bear”. She is close to skiing, waterfalls, lakes, highest elevation golf course on east coast and much more. The house is .05 miles from Wintergreen's Mountain Inn lodge and right off Black Rock Circle. Our home is about 45 minutes from Charlottesville, Monticello and UVA.

We love having families in the house and the kids love running around the outside playing on the rocks and trees.

We do have an age limit and do not allow parties or open fires on the premises. We do have a gas grill for our guests.


Driveway: The house has a flat driveway with lots of parking and only has three steps to get inside.

Bedrooms: The upstairs has two bedrooms (Rm. 1: has one king bed and a Rm. 2: twin with twin /full bunkbed and a Jack and Jill bathroom. Downstairs and on main floor has a MBR (queen bed) and another full bath.

Dining/Living Room: The dining room and the living room have an open concept and are very spacious with vaulted ceilings and a free standing gas fireplace. We have a 60 inch T.V. With DVD and blue ray player for sports fans! Just added: barn wood detail along one living room wall and bar.

Kitchen: Large Kitchen (for Wintergreen) with solid wood cabinets and new stainless steel appliances. And new backsplash. We have plenty of supplies in the kitchen- cooking tools, eating utensils and 3 frying pans, a mixer, blender, whisk, large crock pot, and pots and pans for big breakfast meals!

Deck: We have a large deck that is partially screened in. Come on up and relax, drink coffee and watch the deer and sunrise!

Air condition: window units in bedrooms. After our first summer having the home we found we didn't use them the whole time and never had a problem keeping the living room and rest of the area comfortable.

Nice clean house in a beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at this house in Wintergreen Resort. It was plenty big enough for my family and pets. The resort in itself is pretty nice with hiking trails, overlooks and plenty of wildlife. Saw countless deer, squirrels, chipmunks, even had a bear ramble through one morning!

There is plenty to do in the resort, and not too far to drive to get to the BRP or to a decent size town.

The house is several years old, but is very well kept. The only issue we really had was the internet went out on us. (Wasn’t too much of a problem because cell service is decent). Angela quickly had someone come and repair it for us. She was great to deal with!

I would recommend if you have very small children to bring a baby gate to keep them downstairs. The house is beautiful but the upstairs railing would be very easy for an unmonitored child to accidentally roll under. It wasn’t a problem for us since we had a gate with us.

I definitely recommend staying here and would go back!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the kind review! Great suggestion about the baby gate. I’ll bring one up for the guest, and leave for everyone. She is an oldie but a goodie and we just luv fixing her up. New countertops and barn wood around the bar are being put in this summer, I’m so excited!

Great resort home!

  • 5 of 5

My family had the opportunity to enjoy this lovely property for a long weekend in May. It was very clean and well appointed. The weather was uncooperative for us, but there are games, puzzles and movies available for use. Angela was very helpful in giving suggestions for nearby dining and amenities. Our only regret was having to leave so soon!

The property is very clean and kept up very well!

Thank you Angela for renting your house to us! Driving 7–8 hours with 6 kids was really worth it. When we opened the door and walked in the kids said, “This is a nice house!” Indeed it is! We call it the cozy cabin. The area had a lot of scenic breathtaking views. Crabtree falls was awesome! Angela you were very attentive to all of our questions which was great! I would definitely recommend your home. Thanks again!

Great mountain getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay in Angela's spacious, clean, and warm mountain home. The private driveway parking and easy access to the house was a huge plus for our family of 6 + 1 geriatric dog! Angela was pleasant and easy to work with, and very responsive to our questions. We loved the books and games available for use at the cabin. It would be great to also have some basic pantry supplies and travel-sized toiletries available like in some of the other cabins we have stayed at previously (mainly as a temporary back-up in case we run out). Some dog bowls would also be much welcome! Overall, a wonderful mountain getaway. Would definitely recommend.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review and for choosing our home. We like to keep our rates affordable and figure guests would go to The Market if they forgot something. I thought about dog bowels but because of kennel cough, its probably best for our fury guests if they bring their dishes from home. Thank you for your comments.

Perfect for a ski weekend

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here recently for a last-minute ski weekend at Wintergreen. House was warm and welcoming, plenty of space for the 4 of us and would easily accommodate more. Angela was easily reached and responsive to confirm check-in process, and everything went smoothly. Kitchen had everything we needed (especially grateful for the toaster and tea kettle-- we rent often, and find that these appliances are not routinely provided everywhere), and we loved hanging out in the open living room for movie watching and board games-- thanks for having them out! House itself is very convenient to the Mountain Inn, and just down the road from the Market for groceries, pizza, etc. As other reviews have noted, the house is not a luxury hotel-- however, it has a cozy ski cabin feel to it, and my family loved it. We will definitely look to stay here again on future visits to Wintergreen.
