Overview

About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Near all activities, including hiking trails, swimming in either pools or a fresh water lake and just a short distance to the Mountain Inn and Conference Center.

If you're looking for extreme luxury, thanks for checking me out, but this is set up for families and kids, and you may want to check out the accommodations that rent for much more if you want additional luxury. I have done a lot of work on this house myself, and you can tell a professional contractor did not do some of the work. If you can get by that - you won't have any problem staying here. When I get around to finishing my improvements, I'll do it, but I don't know when that will be. Please don'[t come here and complain about my Do It Yourself projects! The house is old, but it is clean, comfortable and has satisfied families for 33 years. The photos will speak for themselves.

NETFLIX! Enjoy a great selection of movies or your favorite TV shows using Netflix my streaming attachment. A guest account is available if you do not have your own Netflix account. I also have Encore, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax and The Movie Channel if you want to surf cable for movies.

If you get tired of movies, have a blast on the dual mike karaoke machine and over twenty karaoke CD discs with all types of music. The karaoke may be hooked up to the TV for large screen lyrics.

This house is located five blocks from the ski slopes. The shuttle bus does not stop on my street because we are so close, but you may call transportation, and they may pick you up if they have time (no guarantee though).

There is a $50 charge for one pet (if accompanied by a paying adult). Check with me if you have more than one.

This is a comfortable home at affordable rates. Wireless Verizon DSL Internet service is provided.

42 inch TV. Enjoy watching movies (DVD's including Blue Ray) or games on PlayStation 3. I provide PS3 video games, or you are welcome to bring your own.

There are several wineries just a short drive away. A map with directions and phone numbers is available upon request.

Horseback riding is available in the valley at Stoney Creek. Rodes Farm offers pony rides for the kids, trail rides and they even give lessons

Chestnut Springs Pool facility and Pavilion are minutes away from the house. The Rodes Farm pool, in the valley (about ten minutes away by car) includes volleyball court, kiddie pool, horseshoes and tennis. These facilities are available to my guests between Memorial Day and Labor Day, without charge. Sherando Lake in the George Washington National Forest is 6 miles away (about 10 minutes).

About Deerview

I retired from the Federal Aviation Administration in 2009. I worked as an Air Traffic Controller in seven different FAA facilities, including my home town of Providence, Rhode Island. I love pets, especially dogs, with cats being a close second. It's hard for me to pass by someone walking their dog in my neighborhood without stopping to pet them or scratch their ears (the dog - not the owner). One of my daughters has a cat, who I love to have lay on my lap, and purr while I'm brushing him.

We are the original owners of this house at Wintergreen and have been enjoying the mountain since 1984. It may not be as fancy as some of the houses on the mountain, but the kids, grandchildren, and our pets are always comfortable and have a good time.

Deerview purchased this house in 1984

Clean and accomodating

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for my family and I to retreat for the weekend. Accommodated 6 adults, a baby, and small pup with no issues. Marcus was responsive throughout the process. If you're looking for a clean, affordable, and great location in the Wintergreen area, look no further.

Nice and easy

  • 5 of 5

Nice house very close to the slopes. The weather wasn't the best while we were there, but they still had a few slopes open. There was plenty of room in the house for all of us and the karaoke machine was a big hit. Great place to stay!

Perfect for us!

  • 4 of 5

We love staying at this property. The kitchen is well stocked. We love having a fire after a long day of skiing in the wood stove.

We did have some issues getting the karaoke and dvd players working.

Thank you again for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: Apparently the guests just before you had broken the cable that displayed the words on the large screen TV on the game table. The small screen still worked, so the karaoke was always useable. I'll eventually replace the karaoke machine, but I don't know when, however, future guests will still be able to enjoy it. As a matter of fact, the guest that checked in after you did use it (see the review below this one). I don't know what the problem is with the DVD, but I will check it out. As I told the guest when we spoke on the phone about the DVD, you can always use the one in the PS3 as a backup. The one you had a problem with is a stand alone system, but I will replace or repair it. In the mean time, I carry ALL the premium channels on cable - there are numerous movies to watch 24/7. Thanks for staying, and being a repeat guest at my house.

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5

This house was plenty large for our family of 7 adults and 1 child. The kitchen table is HUGE and was great for breakfast and dinners. The sectional couch is very comfortable as a couch and so-so as a bed (but really, how comfortable are any sofa beds?). The karaoke machine was a hit with our 6 year old and there are tons of cds to choose from. Very cool. The greatest thing about this house is it is a THREE MINUTE DRIVE to the resort! This was wonderful as some folks wanted to ski later and it was so easy to go drive back and pick them up. The driveway can hold 3 cars comfortably and you could squeeze another if need be. There were plenty of dishes, cups, pots, pans, and other kitchen items. As the owner stated, this house is not a "luxury" home and if you are looking for something that blows your mind, keep moving. This house is ALL ABOUT THE LOCATION and even though you may see some repairs, patch jobs, etc that aren't professional, this house was very CLEAN and that is what was most important for us. For this price, you cannot beat this house and the proximity to the resort. I would recommend the tubing for younger or older alike (1 session is plenty) but I would skip the Ridgley's Fun Park. It was super boring for our 6 year old as they had a mini tubing, some life size blocks in the snow, and you could make snow castles. Not much else and would be fun for 2-4 year olds but not much older. Thanks again Marcus for being so receptive and we hope to come back in the future!

Great stay and accommodating host

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay this cozy cabin. Marcus was very accommodating toward our group. Cabin was described accurately at this web site. It was not luxurious but nicely kept and had extras like the PS2 player, DVD, fireplace and room heaters.

Thanks Marcus! We had a great time despite the rain. We skied anyway and there were no lift lines at all.
