'The mountains are calling and I must go'... John Muir.
We welcome you to enjoy Wintergreen, to retreat, relax and renew. This home, located in the Wintergreen Resort has fabulous views that are visible from nearly every room in the home, abundant natural light and great gathering spaces for large groups. Want privacy? There are 5 bedrooms, each with it's own bath, for private resting places.
The home is on a lovely wooded lot on a very private cul de sac. It provides easy access to all the resort amenities, but is out of the congestion and traffic. The home is very near several trail heads and the hiking is wonderful. Great opportunities for observing the animals and birds that make Wintergreen their home. The serenity and views are delightful. The back of the home has large decks on two levels and very interesting rock formations that set the stage for taking in the view. Travelers with disabilities or young children will appreciate the flat lot and the easy access into the home.
Upon entry there is a vestibule with a full laundry room to the right. This floor has two bedroom suites. One with two twin beds and one with a king. Both bedrooms have spectacular views and private baths with double vanities. There is a large family room with a wood burning stone fireplace. The family room has extensive windows to enjoy the view and there is access out to the ground level deck.
Up one floor is the main level of the home. It has a large well equipped kitchen, a large dining area with seating for 12, a great room with wood paneled cathedral ceilings and a large stone wood burning fireplace. These rooms all have either windows or sliding glass doors that look out on the view. Be sure to enjoy the glorious sunrise from the great room while you are there. The deck with ample seating and gas grill are accessed from this level. There is a master suite with a king size bed and a private bath with double vanities on this level. There is also a cozy bedroom with a queen bed and a private bath. On the third level of the home you will find an additional master suite with a king bed, great views, and a private bath with a double vanity.
This home is perfect for a women's spa or tennis outing, a men's golf or skiing outing, a group of educators attending a Wintergreen Nature Foundation Event, 5 couples who want to vacation together but want their privacy and their own bathroom, or multiple families looking to share a vacation retreat. We will also work to accommodate church youth groups.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home at Wintergreen and hope that you enjoy it as much as we do.

As a Coast Guard family, the Blue Ridge Mountains have always called us back as we lived in coastal areas all over the country. Our college age children have gone to school nearby and have very fond childhood memories of camping in the mountains of Virginia.
Wintergreen is centrally located in Virginia and offers all the things we love to do....snow ski, lake swimming, tennis, hiking gorgeous trails, great micro breweries and wineries and just breathing in the cool dry air up there.
Waking up to the sun coming up over the mountains while sipping coffee on the deck is a simple luxury here. Just a short walk from the house is the trail head to Lower Shamokin Water Falls, one of the many gorgeous trails at Wintergreen, is another of our favorite things to do.
We stayed for two nights for a work retreat. The space was very inviting for a small group. Big, light-filled kitchen and living area. It was also nice that the bedrooms were fairly spaced out so it's a quiet place the sleep. The birds in the backyard are lovely. We walked to the AT for a hike and had dinner at Devil's Backbone brewing.
This is the 4th winter we've rented this house and it was as comfortable and enjoyable as we remembered. Nice upgrades to the kitchen as well. Perfect family space with great views and easy access to the resort. Homeowner has been great to work with over the years.
This was the second year we have rented this beautiful home. We had a great time. We will be booking again next year.
We really enjoyed our stay at the Warrior Run House. We had plenty of room and the house was very, very comfortable. We would definitely reserve this house in the future. Our thanks to the homeowners for making us feel right at home!
We have visited Wintergreen for 4 Thanksgivings, in a different house each year, and this one is the best. It's bright with gorgeous views from 2 decks, and cool rock formations below. The driveway entrance is straight and easy. The house was spotlessly clean, and the zonal heating worked everywhere. We used both living areas, and the furniture is great-comfy, and everyone can sit together. The dining table was perfect for us- we had 10 for dinner, with elbow room, and the kitchen had all we need. The 5 bedrooms are spread out, so that if someone needed a nap, they wouldn't hear the others, and each has its own bathroom, which is hard to find. We get Wintergreen's catered turkey dinner and set up a buffet- the food is excellent! Then, to top it off, without getting into a car, you can walk to the Appalachian Trail, and to Shamokin Falls! They have a nice wood-burning fireplace and plenty of wood, which we didn't get to use, since it was a warm weekend, but must be great on cold nights.
Helen is very good to work with, and directions for everything are clear and easy. We had a wonderful time, and only wished it were longer.
Having seen several cabins in the area, I can confidently say that this is one of the nicest cabin our group of friends has stayed in. The layout is great for group activity but also privacy. A bathroom in every bedroom is huge plus! Don't let the lack of A/C deter you, the outdoor temperature was 10-15º cooler than the surrounding area and the house has good airflow. Would recommend to friends/family.
The Wintergreen Nature Foundation regularly offers special nature and educational programs for resort guests and members. The Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian Trail and a trail to a beautiful waterfall are within walking distance of the home. There are many wineries open for wine tours, there are multiple microbreweries, and there are numerous orchards that sponsor Fall festivities all within 20 to 30 minutes of our home. Lake Sherando a state recreational area is close by and Crabtree Falls is nearby also. Enjoy cultural or sporting events or student activities such as freshman move in or senior graduations at The University of Virginia, just 40 minutes away.
