Overview

Wintergreen House Rental Photos and Description

5 BR, 4 BA, sleeps 12

Plan your late fall or winter getaway now! ASK ABOUT OUR FALL SPECIALS! Even a few days in the mountain air will refresh you. Hike, ski, snowboard, tubing...enjoy one or more of the activities the mountain has to offer.

Use our house as a home base for visiting the local brew pups and wineries. Limo services are available for pick-up and travel to/from the venues. (Ask Peter for the list of drivers.) Then return for a relaxing evening in the mountains. Read a book or just chill as the burgers come off the grill. Too cool to go out at night? No problem. Watch a movie in front of the fireplace.

GOLFERS: Perfectly situated on a peninsula of land surrounded by the 7th, 8th and 9th holes of the picturesque Devil's Knob golf course at Wintergreen Resort, any season feels just right at 83 Gray Birch Lane. Spectacular views of the golf course abound whether you are cooking, dining, or just relaxing in the great room. In the warmer weather, take advantage of the huge deck overlooking the golf course. Want some quiet time? Just head for the front porch and get away from it all. Want to go out to eat or play tennis? The Devil's Knob restaurant is just a short walk up the 9th fairway. The golf course is your 'backyard' for early morning/evening walks/runs, and for sledding (sleds provided).

Our house is perfect for any season. A ground floor entry into a mudroom/laundry room makes it easy to change into something warm and dry before you come into the house. A fireplace (with large TV overhead) and pool room greet you as you enter the ground floor. You may have so much fun that you never make it upstairs.

If you are a golfer, you will love this home! Walk up the Devil's Knob 9th fairway to the driving range before you play. While you are playing, you can stop by the house and say 'Hello' to your non-golfing family/friends. When you are finished, everyone can enjoy a cold drink from the large back deck while you watch others navigate the course. In the evening, enjoy a stroll around the 8th hole's pond as you watch the sun go down. If you still need some incentive, our ground floor has a large extra bedroom, full bathroom and enormous 'playroom' to include a pool table.

Decorated by a professional artist to provide you with the most relaxing accommodations. From the warm colors to the luxurious beds/bedding to the artist's special touches, everything has been picked to make your stay memorable. You will not want to leave.

The main/first floor includes a cathedral-ceiling kitchen, laundry room, dining area, and large great room (with gas fireplace) with access to the deck overlooking the 7th, 8th and 9th holes. With it's own deck access, the downstairs master bedroom (cathedral ceiling and a queen-sized bed) with full bath also overlooks the fairway. The second bedroom (queen-sized bed) and third bedroom (two twin-sized beds) share a second full bath.

Upstairs overlooking the great room enjoy a second master bedroom suite (skylights in the cathedral ceiling and a queen-sized bed) with its own full bath.

The ground floor provides easy access into the house via a mudroom that provides plenty of space to store your ski, golf, tennis, etc., equipment during your stay. The mudroom also has its own washer/dryer for your wet 'play' clothes. The ground floor includes a second gas fireplace in the sitting area, another eating area, a pool table, full bathroom, and a large bedroom (great for 4 children and includes a DVD player and video game set-up). You can even keep cold drinks in a small refrigerator and make some popcorn in the micowave.

TVs are located in the great room on the main/first floor, the two master bedrooms, and above the gas fireplace on the ground floor so you can view it from anywhere in the playroom. DIRECT TV connection includes XM radio for your music enjoyment.

Great Home for two Families

  • 5 of 5

4 adults, 6 children stayed in this home for a ski weekend. Lost of space for everyone. Peter was very responsive and helpful. We were "snowed in" on Saturday, but everyone was entertained with sledding on the golf course (sleds provided!) or participating in an adult vs child pool tournament. We cooked breakfast and dinners in the home, and had everything we needed. This is a beautiful home, great views, and comfortable beds....what more could you want for a relaxing weekend!

Winter wonderland

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful home over Thanksgiving with our family. We were surprised on arrival to have 10-12" of snow. The view surrounding the house was magical . The house is well equipped and beautifully decorated. The owner had the driveway plowed quickly and was available to answer our questions. We had a great time and hope to return this spring/ summer enjoy golf. We highly recommend this property .

Second time around - still highly recommend this house!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for the second time in two years and found the house to be exactly as we remembered. Love the location, cleanliness and comfort of this home. It is one of the best finds we have had through VRBO. We cooked meals in the kitchen and on the grill, but also recommend the Copper Mine Bistro for a good upscale meal.

Be aware the Devils Knob golf course and dining room have recently gone private, but the Stoney Creek course about 25 minutes down the mountain is still accessible, as are several local brew pubs. Consensus among the locals is that this experiment might not last long, so you might check with Peter; he has always been extremely helpful to us.

Excellent, carefully maintained house.

  • 5 of 5

We've rented this house multiple times, it is perfect for families with children, especially during ski season. The level driveway, with plenty of parking, made access easy, even for now-4 wheel drive cars. The snow was plowed before our arrival. The basement great room is perfect for children, the upstairs layout is open and expansive. The private third floor bedroom is ideal for quiet privacy, like a sleeping infant. The owner was very accessible and responsive, making the rental process easy. I highly recommend this house..

Family reunion for 12

  • 4 of 5

The house is beautiful! Obvious touches by knowledgeable home decorators.

We had a wonderful time despite foul drizzly weather throughout the weekend. We were pretty much confined to quarters but the spaciousness of the two lounge and recreation areas kept us from tripping over each other.

Kitchen and dining area are well decorated but rather small for a party of 12.

Would return but with fewer people.

Family Ski Time

  • 5 of 5

Our family -- 8 adults, 4 children had such fun skiing in the fresh and man made snow, tubing and sleigh riding! Our 2nd stay in this home. Lots of room for all to watch TV, play board games, play pool, or read a book. It was Super Bowl Weekend so lots of excitement as we cheered on our favorite team!

Thanks for shipping item I left!
