About Player and Mark Michelsen

Mark and I purchased Black Rock 19 in the Summer of 2007 and just completed major renovations to the house in December 2016, We fell in love with this property because it is very spacious, well lit, and large family room for the entire family to sit comfortably, living areas and is on a great lot with a flat driveway (most important in snow storms) This house distinguished itself from the many others we looked at during our house search in Wintergreen. We have lived in Richmond, Virginia since we met in Law School in the late 80s. Mark is originally from Durham, NC and I am from Alexandria, Va. We are very proud of Black Rock 19 and have had so much fun renting it to so many wonderful families over the years.

Why Player and Mark Michelsen chose Wintergreen Resort

Blue Ridge Mountains and the views

What makes this house unique

Our property is located on a large flat lot on top of the mountain, making it very safe and accessible for small children, and the elderly. Our driveway pulls right to the front porch for easy unloading. This is very important during inclement weather.

Fantastic mountain rental!

  • 5 of 5

Most vacation rentals leave something to be desired -- a little worn around the edges, furniture and design that make one feel a bit sad. That's NOT this house! Newly renovated, it feels crisp and pristine. A great kitchen (and well-stocked), several comfortable bedrooms and nice bathrooms. We had ample room to relax, read, chat and enjoy wonderful meals around the large dining table. Great house. Perfect weekend.

Great Ski Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this home. Everything we needed was right there. We were just a few minutes away from Wintergreen ski slopes. The pictures of the house do not do justice to the real thing. I would (and have begun already) recommending this house to anyone looking for a getaway. We can't wait to return again!

Beautiful! Well equipped and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had some out of state family from Colorado visit. We spent a few days here in Wintergreen. We have rented homes in the mountains of Colorado before and were so impressed with this home. The house is beautifully decorated and very well equipped! Loved the master bedroom and bath. We had such a good time, and there are great things to do not far away. Can't wait to go back!

Great end of summer getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed staying in this home. It is very comfortable and clean. Our children (10 and 13 years old) had a good time picking out their favorite room to stay in. The layout is awesome and would be a great place for several families to stay together. Confirm with the owners, but I think it may sleep more than the # stated in the description. Although there are great restaurants in the area, we cooked all of our meals and appreciated the fact that the kitchen has all of the utensils, appliances and pots and pans that you need. We brought our Wi system and easily hooked it up to the tv in the loft. Our children are already asking if we can come back this winter and stay in this house again. Thanks for a great couple of days!

Ideal for Families

  • 5 of 5

This property has breathtaking mountain views and is very conveniently located near a small market, the ski slopes and other amenities. This home is generously furnsihed with extras --dishes, pots & pans, utensils and even a few small tools which came in handy. There was an ample supply of firewood and the fireplace works great and doesn't smoke. Don't worry about the access roads to this mountaintop aerie; they were kept open constantly by snow plows. Here's what we liked most: Bedrooms were sufficiently segregated to provide privacy when desired, but the spacious adjoining dining area and great room provided comfortable group gathering space without feeling crowded. A genuine apline experience enjoyed by all whose ages ranged from 9 to 73.

Our family had a great time! Beautiful views, great hiking and activities (golf, fishing). We couldn't get the kids to come in but they sure slept well after we finally did. Thanks for sharing your comfortable and well equipted home with us!

RENTAL RATES ARE BETTER THAN EVER. We are on top of the mountain near the Mountain Inn and the slopes.

Welcome to Black Rock 19! This house is located on a very private wooded lot on top of Black Rock Mountain up top and near the main mountain Inn. While we are within walking distance of the Mountain Inn and the slopes, if want door to door service, there is a shuttle service that will take you directly where you want to go. Take a walk across the street to Black Rock Park and find the most breath-taking views of the Blue Ridge Mountains! You will find yourself wanting to go there several times a day just to marvel at it! This home is a getaway for all seasons. A truly spectacular place to vacation! There is golf, tennis, swimming, fishing, zip lining, summer tubing, bungee jumping, etc. . Wintergreen also has phenomenal hiking trails for all levels with two trails right across the street from our house. There are trails perfect for beginners, and extremely challenging ones for the experts.

Other Activities: Try the new zip line! See Crabtree Falls Visit the many nearby vineyards
