Overview

About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Welcome to our home, Double Trouble! A dog-friendly vacation home!

They say a name is everything. A morning of hiking or tennis? An afternoon of swimming or mountain biking? Or impress your friends and ski in the morning and golf in the afternoon at Stony Creek in the spring! And of course the origin of the name, our boy / girl twins and two lovable dogs.

Our house is located inside the Wintergreen Resort up near the top of the mountain. It is a beautiful Lindal cedar home with floor to ceiling windows in the family room, extensive woodwork and stone fireplace. Easy entrance with only 3 wide, flat steps to and from our front porch and our driveway which differentiates us from so many other mountain homes. Imagine arriving for a weekend after dark in the snow with luggage, sleeping children and a dog and having 20 or so steps to hike to enter the house? Not our place. We graded our driveway specifically to avoid this disastrous beginning to a Wintergreen weekend. Just a hop, skip and jump from the gorgeous waterfall hiking trail and down the road from the Appalachian Trail access. We are a dog family with a golden retriever and a black lab so we understand how important it is to vacation with your pets! We even have a large dog crate and dog bed to make it the perfect vacation for all family members. In addition, our huge mudroom (complete with counter space, large sink, lockers, a huge bench and full size washer & dryer) is the answer to managing all your ski and golf equipment and other 'stuff' that traveling families have to cart around.

Come see why we fell in love with Wintergreen! Nature, wildlife, 30 miles of hiking trails, great views, 45-holes of golf, extensive skiing, boarding and tubing runs, a great kids program, a lake, horseback riding and much, much more. Our family has participated in all activities and sports that Wintergreen has to offer and I promise you won't be disappointed. And at the end of a fun-filled day, you can relax on the deck while you listen to the birds and the sound of the babbling brook behind our house. For the beer drinker in the family, we even offer a refrigerator.

Dogs are welcome all around the resort as long as they are on a leash. Although, if your pooch is well trained he can romp off-leash on the many hiking trails. We provide extra doggie-towels to help clean them up after a long day of hiking. Unfortunately, no cats allowed due to allergies.

And best of all, we offer two Guest of Member passes which allows up to four people per pass access to ski, golf, kids programs, pools and the lake. Separate use fees apply.

As for sleeping accommodations, the master bedroom is upstairs and has two queen beds. Adjacent to the master bedroom is full bathroom with a jacuzzi tub and a small loft with a table & four chairs - perfect for game time or plugging in your lap top computer. We have free WiFi.

Bedroom 2 and 3 are on the main level and each feature a double bed. These two bedrooms share a full size hallway bathroom. The basement has a living area with a sofa and small TV, a full bathroom and bedroom with a queen bed.

Why Melissa Greenblatt chose Central Virginia

My husband and I first went to Wintergreen for a romantic golf weekend just after we got engaged! We returned several times to ski and play golf. We always wanted a vacation home in the mountains! In 2003, that dream became a reality. Wintergreen is the perfect mix of outdoor activities, fine dining, kid friendly programs and breathtaking views.

What makes this house unique

Vacationing in the mountains offer challenges that one might not consider when leaving home. The biggest one is the amount of steps that you have to climb once you arrive. Not a concern at our place as we had the entrance specially graded to eliminate any concerns. Other houses on this program have equally beautiful homes with spectacular views but with those views comes a downside that you wont find advertised on their sites. Steep steps, sometimes as many as dozens just to reach the front door. We have none. It's a straight shot right to our front door so loading in the luggage, food, skis, golf clubs and most importantly sleeping children is a breeze.

Beautiful property, cozy, pet friendly

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and comfortable. We spent a wonderful ski weekend with family and could not have found a better place to stay. The "mud" room was very convenient for our snowboard equipment, we loved it. The parking pass was super convenient! We parked in lot A at walking distance from the village center. Most of the parking lots were full and we did not have to take the shuttle so that really made a big difference and saved us some time.

The house is spacious and well decorated, we loved the family pictures, they made the house feel very homey.

We also appreciated the fact that it is a pet friendly property. Our little prince was able to travel and stay with us. The owners even have a pet bed in the living room that our dog enjoyed :)

The trail was amazing. We walked all the way down to the waterfall and had a blast. It is located right by the house.

If you arrive late at night, it can be a little difficult to find the house. Be on the look out.

Overall, we recommend this property and will be booking it again soon. Definitely worth it.

New Years Weekend

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I along with some close friends rented Double Trouble for the New Years weekend. The house is at the top of Wintergreen Resort and can be difficult to find in the dark, would recommend arriving in daylight as there are no street lights. The ski area is about a 5-10 minute drive down the mountain. The house is very cozy and in a quiet area of the mountain. Overall, the house fit 8 adults comfortably, the kitchen was adequately stocked, clean bathrooms, spacious dining room. The mudroom was great for housing all of our ski gear. Our black lab enjoyed the weekend as well; bowls, dog bed, a crate and dog toys were all available for use. We would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful, cozy house in a quiet location!

  • 4 of 5

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our getaway in this lovely home over Thanksgiving weekend! Everyone had their own space and the common areas were comfortable, cozy and bright. It was quite chilly that weekend so we got plenty of use out of the gas fireplace. We hiked the trail that begins right at the house and made it to the Upper Shamokin Falls (I'm originally from the town of Shamokin in PA! What a coincidence!). The trail was not too easy, not too difficult, but just right for a Saturday afternoon. The only reason I only gave this house four stars is because there are a few things that could be updated. (Maybe new towels?) However, there was nothing that took away from an overall great weekend. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely mountain retreat

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this cabin-- it is perfectly located near hiking trails and it had every amenity one might need for a retreat in the mountains. The owner communicated all details needed to be able to enjoy our stay. We appreciated being able to bring our dog too! The gas fireplace provided wonderful ambiance in the evenings-- we only wish a TV wasn't located directly above it, necessitating the use of a fan to prevent heating up the bottom of the TV. Who needs TV when you have the beauty of the woods and mountains right outside the windows?! We will definitely stay here again-- it is perfect for us to enjoy long hikes and then enjoy cozy evenings in the comfort of the cabin. We recommend it to anyone-- you'll be very comfortable!

Nice vacation home, winding roads to access

  • 4 of 5

We rented this home for a fall weekend visit. The home is in a nice development at the top of Wintergreen resort. Please note it is almost 5 miles along very winding roads to access the home. Arriving after dark was a little challenging - the last 1/2 mile is a very steep downhill grade. The home is in the woods - there is no "mountain views" from the home - only a wooded view, at least during the fall. Note that there is a hiking trail that runs right next to the home - this is very convenient for hiking down to a pretty waterfall. However, the downside of this trail is we were awoken at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning by hikers yelling on the trail - it seems to be a very popular trail for folks in the neighborhood to hike, so be prepared for some activity/noise on nice weather days.

The home was adequate for sleeping arrangements, just very basically furnished in the bedrooms. Several of the lamps were not working or had burned out bulbs. We were not able to get the fireplace working, and you are required to run fans under the mantle if the fireplace is lit - which sound like hairdryers, so would negate the experience of the fire a bit. The kitchen was small - adequate plates/silverware and good variety of pots and plans. The serving and cleaning supplies (kitchen dishtowels, bowls for serving, trivets to put a hot dish on,etc). were not very well stocked.

The bathrooms were very clean - however the home overall had a sense of neglect to it - cobwebs/dust on picture frames over the beds and in the window sills, some areas of kitchen not completely cleaned (frig and under the sink were dirty).

We would rent again, especially to accommodate our dog, but I would recommend the owner replenish some kitchen items and also do a deep clean of the property

great place!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Double Trouble for a long weekend to accommodate an overflow of family members and dogs and it was great. We have a home at Wintergreen less than 2 minutes up the road. We had 3 adults, an infant and 2 dogs who stayed there . When I took my family members down to the house to check in it was very spacious and very clean. It was also very comfortable for both humans and dogs. My family loved it and are already discussing a return visit. Also the location right by the trail down to Shamokin Falls makes it a great place to enjoy the spectacular mountains of Wintergreen.
