Overview

Overview

Charlottesville House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths (Sleeps 4)

Skyline Crest is a private mountain-top retreat high in the Blue Ridge Mountains west of Charlottesville, Virginia.

Part of a 1,400-acre gated compound bordering the Shenandoah National Park, the property offers supreme privacy in one of the most spectacular natural settings in the Eastern Mountains. Deer, bear and turkey wander through the forests and open fields. Hawks soar overhead. An elevation of 3,200 feet ensures cool temperatures and constant breezes throughout the summer.

The views from the striking contemporary house are breathtaking - a 120-mile panorama from the level Piedmont in the east, over the near Blue Ridge and the Shenandoah Valley to the distant Alleghenies, fading far into West Virginia.

(For photos and video, follow the link to our website - see below, just above 'Owner's Profile.') Five decks, including a spacious rooftop deck, open onto the various daytime vistas - and at night provide for thrilling star-gazing under some of the darkest skies in the Mid-Atlantic.

The house itself (2 bedrooms, 2 full baths) features every modern convenience, including a state-of-the art kitchen, satellite TV and wireless internet. A whole-house generator provides backup power and peace of mind year-round.

Although it feels like a world apart, Skyline Crest is only 35 minutes from Charlottesville and Jefferson's University of Virginia, giving you easy access to all the cultural amenities that a cosmopolitan University community can offer. Also nearby is Wintergreen, the renowned four-season resort, featuring two award-winning golf courses and some of the best skiing and snowboarding south of New England.

Not just a stay, but an experience.

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with my husband and another couple. Perfectly outfitted and comfortable home. Had everything we needed. Well-outfitted kitchen, ready-to-go wood burning fireplace, cozy décor.

It's a place of personality and beauty, not just an overnight stay but a place to be experienced. The view is more than can be photographed, and the house is crafted to show it off.

It is indeed up a mountain, no doubt about it, but to get a view like that you need the altitude. There is serious hiking, but even a stroll along the road is refreshing. A note, add in travel time for up/down the mountain. Have your wits about you, too. It's a gorgeous drive but it's tight and shared with other cars and cyclists. We did see the sites in the surrounding towns, but went down/up the mountain just the one time per day --- so bring your groceries on the way up.

The reservation company and the owner are spot-on responsive. The information they provide is extensive and clear. We had no concerns about how our reservation was treated or how we were respected as guests.

I'd love to go back. Have fun!

Amazing Mountain Retreat

  • 5 of 5
This place is so amazing. My friends and I had the best time. The house comfortably sleeps four people, and could probably even fit a few more on the pull-out couch. My dog also had an amazing time. The views are incomparable and the trip up the mountain is breath-taking. We had 6 bear sightings and it was just incredible. The star-views at night were also amazing viewed from the roof. I would come here every weekend if I could!!

We spent 2 weeks this time in heaven and plan to return again next year. What a treat it was for us to relax in this beautiful home on the top of Buck Elbow Mountain. We were fortunate enough to see a big black bear, several turkeys, white-tailed deer, many cows, spectacular views, sunsets, and sunrises. It was comfortable, peaceful, and restorative.

A perfectly relaxing long weekend

  • 5 of 5
Picking a long weekend in February, we knew the weather could be a factor.... & boy was it. Thank you Dan for going the extra mile to make sure we got in via bulldozer. So lovely that the fire was already going in the woodstove upon arrival as well. 95% of our time there was spent IN the house due to weather conditions but that was just fine with all of us as the house is so wonderful.

Owner's Response: Holly, as you know, we are scrupulous about notifying guests when weather or road conditions are too difficult for access. But you would not take no for an answer! I’m glad you didn’t. You turned out to be, just as you promised, experienced snow drivers with good 4WD. Glad we could get you up there, and glad you had a good time.

Yes, it IS on a mountain top!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Skyline Crest with our two dogs for three nights recently and loved it! The house is huge, modern has amazing windows/views/light from every room. It is ON TOP of a mountain (that is gated to begin with) so it is very secluded. We've stayed in several cabins in the area and none can beat the view here. The ability to go hiking right from the front door is a huge plus and you're just a few miles from tons of wineries and breweries. We had a great weekend there and wish is could have been longer. The house was clean, had plenty of tools for all the cooking, clean linens, and fire wood (and kindling) ready to go for the stove. The property manager and owner were great and provided all the information we needed before arrival. The weather up there is definitely different than whatever it may be in Crozet, but that's part of the fun. We had spring like weather one day, gale force winds howling one night and what seemed like a winter storm the day we left...meanwhile it was just drizzling rain in town. Oh, and the dogs loved it too...off leash and in heaven. A great, easy escape for those of us living in DC's insanity. We'll be back.
