SKYLINE CREST - SPECTACULAR BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN RETREAT

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.

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.

ROMANTIC GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at Skyline Crest for the weekend of our wedding anniversary and had a wonderful time. The views are breathtaking and the location of this house is so unique. We hiked on the Appalachian trail, drove into Crozet and Charlottesville for good restaurants and beertasting, and just enjoyed the peace and quiet, and wildlife, at and around the house. The house could have been a little cleaner, but that was a minor drawback from what otherwise is a unique, romantic and restful retreat. We hope to stay here again!

SKYLINE CREST

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Skyline Crest! We celebrated our 15 year anniversary! There was an amazing view that changed daily. The house took advantage of every view. We were disappointed in the kitchen...the pots and pans were worn as well as the plates. There were only a few miscellaneous wine glasses...thought they would have had a few red wine glasses in wine country. The bedding was so-so and no bath mat in the master. The outdoor furniture was the biggest disappointment...picnic table and plastic chairs. We would have liked to enjoy coffee and wine on comfy seating. I understand the concern for gusty winds and storms but maybe put them in storage area for access while you stay. Overall they were quick to respond to any questions or concerns and very accommodating!!! A few tweaks and this place is a gem!!!!!!! Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place to our family and friends. We would recommend Basic Necessities in nearby Nettysford. Great food and wine but simple and eclectic...check out their
web site (reservations highly recommended) Golf at Wintergreen!

MOST BEAUTIFUL SPOT IN THE WORLD, BRING YOUR OWN AMENITIES

  • 4 of 5
If you are going to relax and for the view it is the best place you can be. We wanted to let other travelers know a couple of things, though. For the price, the overall condition of the "amenities" were not great. The linens, furniture and kitchen accessories were very worn and next time we would bring our own (well, not the furniture:). In another listing for the property they mention Calphalon cookware but there are only two very beat up and dirty saute pans. The rest of the cookware is standard Revereware. We had planned on cooking a lot since we wanted to be isolated, but there was no hand mixer, the utensils were very beat up, and there were few mixing bowls or bakeware. The washer and dryer were full of the owner's clothes so they were not very usable. The TV gets basic local stations, which again was fine for our purposes. We took steaks to grill on the charcoal grill that is listed, but it was an old Weber missing a wheel and shoved off to the side of the house. Did them in the one useable frying pan on the stove instead.

In short, for hiking and relaxing and reading and thinking, best place in the world. The physical property description is on point, but the listed amenities really do not fit the property, nor do they fit the price you pay for the property. We travel, A LOT and all over the world, so we understand the value lies in the physical property. It is just sad to have a beautiful home like that, price it as such, and then furnish it as though people will steal things.

Map

Within walking distance of the Appalachian Trail and its vast network of side trails within the Shenandoah National Park. The area around Charlottesville is host to many distinguished wineries, and there is a first-class micro-brewery right at the foot of the mountain. Local orchards offer peach picking in late summer, apples in the fall. Springtime is for ripe strawberries and raspberries.
