About Susan Porter

We live in Virginia Beach and enjoy getting away to the mountains where it is cooler in summer and offers skiing in the winter.

Susan Porter purchased this house in 2004

Why Susan Porter chose Central Virginia

We went to school near the mountains and wanted to come back to the fresh air and open landscapes.

What makes this house unique

We like the open concept of this octagonal home. The bedrooms are private and the deck is expansive.

Perfect Fit

  • 5 of 5

We stayed over MLK weekend to do some skiing. This house fit our family perfect. 6 adults and 1 kid and there was still plenty of room. This house contributed to a relaxing weekend at the slopes. The price was just right too. We will be back.

Excellent Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Three friends and I rented the house for a 3-day getaway to see the leaves changing color. The house is minutes away from the Blue Ridge Parkway, and then north to the Skyline Drive. Close to many trail heads, if you're a hiker. Plenty of amenities minutes away, including a gas station, mini-mart, and two restaurants. But still a very secluded, woodsy feeling. The octagonal-shaped house has a wonderful wrap-around porch that is perfect for viewing the trees and mountains or just having a glass of wine. Well equipped kitchen and 4 decent-sized bedrooms. Great gas fireplace and comfortable chairs. Everything a few friends, a family, or a romantic couple could want for a getaway. And reasonably priced.

Wonderful, unusual home!

  • 5 of 5

Spent a great girls getaway weekend at this unusual, beautiful house. I'd echo another commenter, who said the photos do not do it justice. There are views from every room in the house. A wraparound deck connected to a larger outside deck (with sunset view). Lots of different types of lighting so you can adjust to suit your mood. Really comfy chairs and couches. The gas fireplace works GREAT. Beds comfortable, linens and towels plentiful; there's also a washer and dryer if needed. The kitchen has pretty much all you need. Plus there is a fine collection of fun board games. It's a real deal, and could comfortably accommodate, say, 3-4 couples on a couples weekend, a combo parent-children-grandparent set, etc. The owner has provided a helpful notebook with restaurant menus, nearby attractions, etc. Also, as another commenter mentioned, everything's really well labeled (e.g., light switches). Can't wait to go back!

Unique and Charming Mountainside Rental - Competitive Pricing - Very Helpful Owner

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our in-laws stayed at this home in October of 2014. We found it was available at the last minute, and reached out to the owners, who responded immediately. The owners of this home are extremely accommodating and helpful.

As a previous reviewer said, not shown in the pictures is a double car carport and a large deck spanning between the carport and the front door of the home, with plenty of chairs and a table should you choose to sit out and take in the views.

We found the house to be very clean, and clearly someone takes pride in the house. While the interior and furnishings are a bit dated, that was no problem for our family who was looking for a quick weekend getaway in a mountain "cottage". The gas fireplace is an excellent touch and makes for a cozy atmosphere within the living area. While the house is not overly large, it provided ample space for two couples and one other adult.

The pricing for the home was excellent for when we stayed - likely the cheapest single family home available the weekend we stayed. The location is also excellent - being a short drive from the Wintergreen Resort lodge and formerly named "Black Rock Market" - now just the "Wintergeen Market" according to the newer sign outside.

This home is just what we were looking for and we would definitely consider going back.

Awesome House/Excellent Location/Real Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house is an octogon shaped home with circular path through out the home, which if you want to experience a completely different feel from your standard "I live in a box" house, this is the place to go. The house has a 360 degree wrap around deck with a mountain top view which is within walking distance to the slopes at Wintergreen. There is also a two car covered carport which is not in the pictures of the home which if you have some rain makes it very easy to get your stuff out of your cars into the home.

This home is set up for someone looking to escape your "digital" addictions and a real respite from our hectic everyday lives. There is not a television in every room or electronics abundant. They do have Wifi and a television, but do not plan to come to this location and sit in front of a zombie box while you vacate. Cell phone reception at least for the Spring/Verizon type networks is excellent.

The owner/owners communication was excellent/quick/very pleasant with no hassles. When I say no hassles this owner has made renting a vacation home a real relaxing experience. No hidden fees or crazy payment schemes. Straight forward and simple rental.

There are beds enough for eight individuals and probably pull out couches for more. Our group of 6 adults/one child slept comfortably and with privacy. The place has two full bathrooms.

The place throughout was very clean. We have owned beach properties in the past and know the difficulty finding a good cleaning person and this place has a great cleaning person. The home was very clean and well organized. Almost everything was placed logically with labeling for finding anything you may have left at home accidentally. They also have towels and extra towels if needed. There is also laundry facilities if needed.

Nelson County is an excellent staycation for any Virginian and a beautiful retreat for anyone. The local attractions are 3+ breweries of which have excellent beer. All of them have outdoor seating which allows you to take in the natural beauty of the area. Devils Backbone brewery is closest to the rental being at the base of the mountain about 5 miles or so away. Wild Wolf brewery is a little further, followed by Blue Mountain. The hiking and views on the Blue Ridge parkway are also very exceptional. Golf/Skiing/Watersports are also available in frequency if your interested in that.

Final: This rental is a real treat. You wont be disappointed.
