About Nathan Van Orden

We purchased land at Wintergreen Resort in 2005 with the intention of building a Family Retreat. Soon after we built the house we decided to try renting the house on a limited basis. We really enjoyed the stories and good times that other families were having and decided to keep renting the house. We now have several families that enjoy the house as much as we do and continue to come back.

Nathan Van Orden purchased this house in 2009

Why Nathan Van Orden chose Central Virginia

We chose Wintergreen because my wife and I went on one of our first overnight dates to Nelson County. We toured the vineyards, went on a hot air balloon ride, and fell in love with each other and the area. We hope you enjoy Wintergreen and Nelson County as much as we do.

What makes this house unique

My wife and I are both in the hospitality industry and we strive to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. We continually re-invest in the house, furnishings and accessories. We offer a free iPhone application and Local Area Guide on our website, to help you be aware of everything that is going on during your stay.

Absolute perfection

  • 5 of 5

Our group (4 adults, 2 teenagers, 2 toddlers) could not have asked for anything more than this incredible chalet. It's incredibly roomy, well-appointed, has every thing you would need, was spotless, had high-end appliances and furnishings, incredible views, and was located so conveniently to the aquatic center and Mountain Inn. We honestly could not have asked for anything more. This vacation rental exceeded all of our expectations. The layout was also perfect for our group: Roomy master bedroom on top level, queen size bedroom on main kitchen and living level, and two additional bedrooms (queen and bunk) on the lowest level - the same level as the screened in porch, rec room, etc. We hope to return again soon. Thank you for offering your amazing rental for us to enjoy!

Great Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Excellent home with all the amenities you'll need. Spent a great weekend here with the family to enjoy the fall colors. It's close to everything (trails, Blue Ridge Parkway, Rt 151, etc.), very comfortable, and great kitchen for cooking. Both adults and kids loved it.

Girls Mountain Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My second stay at this gorgeous house--and it was even better! There were some furniture additions that added seating to make this stay even more comfy. A day spent on Nelson 151 and a full day with our crew just enjoying the beautiful home and setting atop Devil's Knob--great long weekend. We are looking forward to returning next fall.

Top Rated Wintergreen VA property! Highly recommend the Wintergreen Retreat.

  • 5 of 5

In all aspects of last weeks visit, our recent 4-night stay at Wintergreen Retreat was truly a most pleasant experience. Top rating in all aspects, from the Rental itself to the fabulous golf played at the Devils Knob course.

Nathan Van Orden, the landlord (one surely guided and influenced by a partner with class and good taste) has done an outstanding job in furnishing and decorating this entire Wintergreen Retreat, from top-to-bottom, at 438 Devils Knob Loop.

The kitchen was a chefs’ dream, with every conceivable culinary tool top-of-the-line! Beds, bedrooms, as well as baths, were indeed comfortable and satisfactory. While the game room area, and adjoining screened porch below, rendered an entertainment spot for all.

The owner was responsive and provided excellent customer service where required.

Special birthday weekend

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful home sits in a pretty woodsy location. A nearby magnificent overlook was picture perfect and from here the night sky was a highlight for those of us staying up late.

It's location is ideal for easy access to trails and the Winter Garden Spa. A short drive out of the resort and up the knoll puts you directly on the Blue Ridge Parkway. In the other direction, a bit longer drive down to the valley, offers all kinds of recreation, dining, antiquing, historical sites, all sorts of wineries and breweries, etc.

Everything is provided in the kitchen-all high quality stock. The house is very well cared for indoors and out, clean, comfy seating and bedding and just plain fun with billiards downstairs. We really appreciated the 2 indoor living spaces as well as 2 outdoors. We did have tech savvy folks with us-but couldn't use some. Our suggestion is to have a laminated instruction sheet with photo of device being described.

Highly recommended.
