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.

Family Vacation 2016

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this lovely Wintergreen home. Our group of 9, including 5 children, enjoyed our stay. We hiked on several of the many trails in Wintergreen, visited the Discovery center, enjoyed the spacious deck and screened porch. The house if beautifully decorated with every convenience you could want. My sons, who did all the cooking while we were there, enjoyed the well appointed kitchen...just bring your own food and you'll be ready to enjoy. This home is now on our list of places we will enjoy again.

Absolutely beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely beautiful. It was beyond what we were expecting. They provide absolutely everything except for food and toiletries. And the mountain views are majestic. Wish we had more time to enjoy it. Definitely would go back. Thank you for sharing this beautiful home.

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week in this lovely home. We had three families, for a total of 10 people, and we were very comfortable and had plenty of room. The house was clean and well maintained. It has high end furnishings and is beautifully decorated. The kitchen also has high end appliances and is well equipped. The wifi worked well. It was nice that there was a main level bedroom and bath, if you have someone who has difficulty with stairs. The lower level family room was a favorite of the younger family members, and we all enjoyed a movie night comfortably in the room. The main level deck was large, and the grill was very nice. The screened in porch on the lower level was great as well, but the weather was still a bit cold so we didn't use it as much as we would have had it been warmer. If you are there during warm weather, that advantage of both outdoor spaces! The area is safe, peaceful, and beautiful. We used the house as a home base for many activities in the area. We traveled easily to Liberty University in Lynchburg, Poplar Foerst, Appomattox, Shenandoah National Park, and The Frontier Cultural Museum of VA. We also checked out a cidery and brewery in the area. There are many, and wineries as well. We only needed to contact the owner once, on arrival, because we had a some trouble figuring out how to use the heating/cooling system and TV remotes. Nathan was easily reachable and we were able to get the issues resolved quickly. I would stay here again, and recommend this house to family and friends!

Updated, upscale property. We stayed 3 nights for a family get together. The accomodations were ideal for 8 guests. Kids loved the bunk beds, game room, large screen TV and the adults enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, proximity to hiking trails, beautiful views of the sunsets from the family room. Weather was just warm enough to enjoy the deck one afternoon. Nathan was very accommodating and accecible to answer any questions.

We highly recommend this property and will return.
