Central Virginia House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

No matter what season, our recently renovated five bedroom, two and one-half bath contemporary styled home is the place to be. Enjoy scenic views from our deck, relax after a fun-filled day in front of a wood burning fire, or pamper yourself at the luxurious Wintergreen Spa. Best of all, our home is a half mile walk to the ski slopes and renowned Wintergreen Resort. (We are located at 436 Blackrock Drive.) Come see for yourself how beautiful our home is.

If you've ever dreamed of owning a vacation home, stay with us instead. You will have all of the benefits of a vacation home, with none of the worries. We supply everything you need: linens, towels, firewood, WiFi; and our low rates are the best deal on the mountain. But don't take our word for it, read our guest comments. Why not take advantage of our low rates and treat yourself to a weekend or week at Wintergreen? Compare our rates to Wintergreen Resort if you don't believe us.

Why Barbara Bankowski chose Central Virginia

Our house is located on beautiful Blackrock Drive less than one-half mile to the Inn at Wintergreen, where you will find wonderful restaurants and many special events planned by the Inn.

What makes this house unique

We just keep getting better: we take pride in our home and it couch, new dining room table, newly installed downstairs bath, new hardwood floors throughout first floor, freshly painted rooms, new furniture/beds in bedrooms. To us, you're our guests. We try to take care of the little things so that you can enjoy your stay. We have plenty of firewood stacked up at the back door; our gas grill is on the front deck. Closets have plenty of towels, kitchen has all the tools a serious cook would want.

But probably the best deal is our special weekend deal. I don't know about you, but for me, after a day on the slopes, I don't want to have to drive home, sitting in my ski clothes. With our weekend special rate, you can stay as long as you like on the third day (or even stay till the next day!) So, instead of rushing home Sunday, why not take advantage of the third night, and relax by the fire before driving home? You may even decide to leave Monday morning!

Great house...better owner

  • 5 of 5

House was perfect for our 2 family ski trip. We had 2 families (4 adults & 5 kids). Plenty of room; clean; warm; convenient to Wintergreen slopes; stocked for cooking meals.

Barbara was so pleasant and responsive. ALWAYS responded to our emails within 1 hour. Highly recommend!

New Years at Wintergreen

  • 5 of 5

The place was amazing! Barbara described the place perfectly. The bedrooms were all great sizes and the location was right next to the slopes. The house was also located a close walk to the only market/gas station on the mountain. The house was very spacious as we had 10 people there and we all fit very comfortably. The house had all the essentials that we needed to start the week of right. Thank you very much and we will be back would recommend to anyone!

Nice house!

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice and impeccably clean. Lots of rooms. Has everything you need for everyday. Unfortunately because of the rainy and foggy weather, we couldn't do much. Many of the resort activities were closed. It was a bummer for the family members who up here from FL, but oh well. We made the best of it.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your great comments about our home. Sorry the weather was so unusual but it's been crazy as you know all over the east coast. Just to tell you how different the weather can be from year to year, a few years ago we had 4 feet of snow Christmas week!. Hope you'll not hold the weather against us!

Wonderful Virginia Experience

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed spending Thanksgiving week in such a wonderful and relaxing home! This pristine home is very well up kept and elegantly decorated. The house was very conveniently located (walking distance from ski resort and store) and had everything we needed and had plenty of room for our party of 6 adult and 4 kids. The bedrooms were warm and cozy with nice comfortable beds. The bathrooms were very well supplied. The kitchen was well equipped, stocked with tea, coffee, spices, etc., which is great (you always forget something!). Fireplace has wood for us to use. The house provided enough space to move comfortably around. We enjoyed our cooking, fireplace and large TV in the living room. The house is very friendly for kids, lots of activities, board games, DVDs, even toys provided. Kids asked if they could stay for more days. The owner provided us with more than enough information about the area and provided us the directions to the house.

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone.

Thanks so much for letting us make memories at your home!

Looking forward to renting again in the future...
