If you are looking for a beautiful vacation home just 4 miles from the entrance of Wintergreen Resort or you'd like to enjoy all the natural beauty that the Blue Ridge Mountain region has to offer, or maybe just looking for some peace and quiet, this is the place for you. But if you are looking for a hi-tech home with flat screen televisions and wireless internet, that's not us! But we did just install the Family package from DISH Networks! And unlike so many rentals at Wintergreen Resort, this home is wheelchair friendly with an easily accessible ramp into the back of the house.
This house boasts a completely new, full kitchen with new electric appliances and freshly painted walls throughout the home. Come enjoy the cozy stone fireplace with an electric log insert (just push the button on the remote control...no lugging messy wood).
Our house has over 1,500 square feet. August of 2013 we've renovated the layout enabling a much larger dining area with a french door out to the deck. We still are able to offer a lovely master bedroom that still has 2 comfortable twin beds pushed together to make a King size bed, while the second bedroom has a lovely, antique double bed. We also have twin beds ready for the kids in the loft that is accessible by a very unique, and safe, attached ladder. The full size laundry room has a large capacity Kenmore washer and dryer.
We are just a half mile from The Ski Barn and Devils Backbone Brewery/Restaurant, so you can pick up your rental skis without waiting in the long Rental lines on the mountain or enjoy some of Virginia's favorite brew just down the street from this property. Nearby Stoney Creek, The Blue Ridge Parkway, Rockfish River, Sherando Lake, George Washington National Forest, and The Appalachian Trail, makes this home away from home the perfect location!

We was here last year and repeat this year again. This years was very nice with a lot of snow on Saturday. We all have good time. The house was on good shape.
My boyfriend and I stayed here over Valentine's Day weekend for a romantic getaway in the mountains. We took a day trip to the nearby Bold Rock Cidery and the Devil's Backbone restaurant, both of which are literally shooting distance from the cottage! The cottage was very well stocked, with everything you could need from aluminum foil to various spices for cooking. We brought food to cook on both nights and found we would have been A-OK in the kitchen without all the accessories we brought in preparation! Our dog loved the backyard and watching the back neighbor's cows, although the side neighbor's dogs didn't seem to like him too much (they barked whenever he was outside!). The cottage lost power on Saturday night during a very heavy snow squall (~40-50 mph wind gusts and heavy snow), but we really enjoyed having a temporary "blizzard," lighting up some candles and snuggling to stay warm. Marge graciously offered to help us with anything we needed, but we declined as we were fairly well prepared, having brought both candles and flashlights, and the power came back on overnight before we had a chance to get too cold. Wasn't expecting the cottage to have TV but there is one in the main living room and in the master bedroom. Absolutely would stay here again!
This is the second winter we have rented foxfire and we enjoyed it just as much as the first time. The addition of the 2 twin beds in the loft is nice. Our children slept up there in separate beds which made for a more comfortable sleep for them. Love that it's an affordable find for a family in the Wintergreen area.
This was me and my husband's 2nd trip to the cottage. everything was just as it was last year. Clean and tidy. Very homey. Stocked with everything you need. And like last time, my dog had a blast playing in the yard out back.
We spent three nights at Foxfire and loved it! The house is very comfortable, has plenty of room for six and offers everything a family needs for a relaxing vacation. Marge was excellent! It felt like we were visiting a relative's house. We were very close to Wintergreen and enjoyed skiing every day we stayed at Foxfire. We definitely plan to return! Thank you!
This warm, cozy and conveniently located cottage is great for families. There is no WiFi, so be aware. We didn't need, so this was not a concern for us. The cottage is at the base from wintergreen and very close to breweries and wineries. We visit Nelson Co. at least 4 times a year and we would stay here again. It is big enough to fit comfortably my family of 5. The kids loved the loft- which makes this cottage a 2.5 bedrooms. What I appreciated the most from this house is that it was fully stocked with dishware, towels, blankets, sheets, etc. The laundry room is big and you can store snowboards or skiis if needed and do your laundry. What I did seem a little concerned about was that it was a bit close to HWY so I was always outside with the kids, just making sure no one ran into the street. It is loud from front porch from cars or trucks whizzing by, but it all goes away when you step inside. There are great views of the mountains. Thanks Marge for being a great host too!
