About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths (Sleeps 11)

This home has everything a family is looking for. Room for everyone with 5 bedrooms. 3 separate living areas with a recreation room that has a pool table, ping pong table, and dart board. The adults can enjoy a movie or quiet time by the fire while the kids are downstairs enjoying their own movie or playing a game. Right outside the door provides rocks to climb, hiding places, and forts to build for the kids while the adults join in or sit on one of three decks looking at the wonderful viewof nearly 7,000 acres on the Nature Preserve. Skiing, tubing, and snowboarding are just a couple of minutes away.

The main floor has a cozy open floor plan, with a brand new kitchen. The living room has a wood stove and TV. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and the dining table is positioned in front of the new sliding glass doors so you can enjoy the view while eating. The master bedroom/bath, second bedroom, bathroom, and large laundry room are also on this floor. The sliding doors open to a large wrap around deck overlooking the Nature Preserve.

The stairs take you up to our favorite room, the great room. There are dark hardwood floors, a large stone fireplace, wetbar, beverage refrigerator, TV, and floor to ceiling windows/glass doors. You can see for miles. There is a large deck to go out on and gaze at the stars. They are incredible. No city lights to lessen the view. There is a full bath and two bedrooms on this floor.

The bottom floor is the kids' favorite area. This room features a dart board, ping pong table, pool table, and a sitting area with TV. They love the fact that they have their own space. Little do they know that the adults have just as much fun down there. A half bath and a bedroom are on this floor. You can walk out to the back of the house or on to a deck in the front of the house.

Right off to the side of the house is a gazebo. It is great to sit out there. The kids play on the rocks surrounding the house. We are located at the end on a private drive so we are in our own world.

If you walk down the mountain directly behind our house you end up on the Shamokin Springs trails. We hike it all the time. We love going to the springs and falls.

This is the perfect home for us. We know you will find it just as enjoyable as we do.

About Holly Proto

We live in Virginia Beach. We have two great boys that love the outdoors as much as we do. We have been going to Wintergreen for years. We have used VRBO ourselves to stay at great places each time we went. We have been looking for a home for about 5 years. We finally found the perfect house for us. We wanted to open up our home to others who want to experience all that Wintergreen has to offer.

Holly Proto purchased this house in 2012

Why Holly Proto chose Wintergreen

This house was exactly what we were looking for. It has mountain views, plenty of room for our friends and family to visit, separate living areas, a game room, and lots of outdoor fun for the family.

What makes this house unique

Great room with large windows to enjoy the view. A beautiful stone fireplace and wetbar to make the great room a 'perfect room'.

Fantastic Mountain Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed over the July 4th weekend and it could not have been any nicer. The family events at Wintergreen were awesome and plenty of space for my 85 year old mother, my brothers and sisters, niece and nephews. The house offered everything including amazing views and a game room for the afternoons when it showered. Our host was so repsonsive and caring and the house is remodeled, clean and fully equiped. Will definitely be back.

Great Mountain Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time this past weekend. Close to all the amenities Wintergreen offers and plenty of space for 3 families. The weather didn't cooperate, but fortunately the downstairs game room offered plenty of entertainment and fun until the rain lifted. Would definitely stay here again!

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed with our two sons and two other families. The accommodations were terrific -nice, cozy, clean plus some! The kitchen and bar area were great for cooking, enjoying the fireplace/views and socializing all at the same time. The bedrooms were comfortable and spacious as well as layout terrific for three separate families. The downstairs game area was as fun for the husbands as our children. I loved on the last day when the kids were all tired from skiing that they had as much fun hiking around and playing outside the house. It makes us want to come back and enjoy during the warm months.

The house is so close to the slopes, made it convenient for going back and forth as needed. I would highly recommend.

Clean & cozy house for two families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this home with our two boys and another family of three. It was a great getaway weekend! The house was clean, well maintained and orderly. It was perfect for two families. The kitchen was newly renovated and there was plenty of seating for dinner. The beds were comfortable, and bathrooms clean. The greatest feature was the downstairs playroom with ping pong and billiards table -- a great place for the little ones to play and be entertained. They even had Lincoln logs and hot wheels, a real treat for us! We went to Wild Wolf Brewery with the kids, they loved it and the adults could relax a little. The mountain lodge was a short drive round the mountain, and the playground there was a hit too.

The mountain view was beautiful and the boys loved climbing on rocks and collecting sticks.

Overall a great chalet roomy for two families! I would definitely go back and recommend this home to friends.

Fun for All!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed in this beautiful home with two other families. We had a total of 6 adults and 6 children. There was more than enough room so that we never felt crowded or on top of one another. The game room was an ideal place for the children, while the adults enjoyed the amazing atmosphere and view from the top floor living area. Each family had bedrooms on seperate floors, which was ideal!! The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed. The washer and dryer room were the perfect spot to unload all of our ski gear and we were thrilled to be able to toss all of our wet gloves in the dryer! Another nice touch was the cozy wood-burning fire place. I was especially impressed that the owners provided the wood! We were there over a holiday weekend and got covered with snow one night. We were concerned about the roads, but they were quickly plowed and easy to drive on. The kids had a blast hiking around the amazing wooded area in the back yard. I look forward to staying in this home next year!
