Sorry – This property is no longer available for rent.

Mountain Ambience — Valley Convenience
You have found the perfect destination for your ski weekend, family vacation, golf outing, college reunion, or even corporate retreat. Spacious and affordable, Tall Oaks Lodge is located in Stoney Creek at Wintergreen, in the beautiful Rockfish Valley. It offers more than 5000 square feet of living space arranged in a fascinating array of gathering areas, spacious bedrooms, cozy nooks, and forest views.

Your vacation rental is not just a place to sleep. It can make your vacation a dream or a nightmare. Although Wintergreen rental homes may look different on the outside, on the inside they have many similarities. The most common arrangement is to have a bunch of small bedrooms and one large "great" room that embraces the kitchen area, dining area, and living room area. This arrangement is "great," if all you do in your vacation home is eat and sleep. But if you want to read a book or listen to music or talk to a friend, you must either retreat to your bedroom or put up with the commotion of all your companions in the great room. You are either all together or all alone. Outside usually doesn't offer much privacy, either. In many locations you can almost touch the house next door.

Now look at Tall Oaks Lodge. Lots of bedrooms, four, to be exact, and four baths — one bedroom features a king-sized bed; two bedrooms are equipped with queen-sized beds; and one has a pair of twin beds — but no "great" room. Instead, a large stone fireplace separates the living room from the dining room, which seats ten at a large oak table. The dining room leads to the kitchen that features top of the line appliances and a breakfast bar that seats four. The kitchen shares open space with the family room, a comfortable space two steps down, with a soft couch and another large stone fireplaceand a 32" flat-screen high definition TV. Down the hall from the dining room is the pentagon room with a table suitable for playing cards, assembling jigsaw puzzles, or feeding kids. Next to the pentagon room is the media room; another comfortable couch and overstuffed chair and a 27" TV with VCR and DVD players. The solarium, between the media room and the living room, opens to both rooms and to the outside. Upstairs is the "den," two overstuffed chairs, walls of windows and bookcases, a small stereo, a wood burning stove, and it overlooks the living room. Down the hall from the den is a small alcove with a wooden doll house and a rocking horse for the smaller guests. Next to the alcove is the play room, with a queen-sized pullout couch, a foosball table, and a 40" flat-screen high definition TV with VCR and DVD players. Oh, yes: the play room is also accessible from its own staircase from the breezeway between the kitchen and the garage.

The solarium opens to a small deck ten steps up from ground level, with a long bench built into the railing and a small table and two chairs. Behind the dining room is a stone patio with a table and chairs, next to the gas grill. Down the way sits the screened gazebo with porch swing overlooking the Rockfish Valley. The large lower deck is separated from the house and features a picnic table, a hammock, and several lounge chairs. Dimmable rope lighting surrounds the deck for nighttime entertaining. The back yard fence will keep small children from wandering away or rolling down the hill. Picturesque stone walls weave gracefully around the terraced grounds, defining the contours and linking the house to the earth. Set on five and a half acres, you can barely see the neighboring houses. You will see deer roaming freely through the woods near the house, but you won't see your cars because they will be hidden in the two-car garage.

If you must stay in touch with the office or check your investments, there is a FAX machine and high-speed wireless (or wired) Internet access at no extra charge. Also make unlimited free direct-dialed long distance calls to anywhere in the US, Guam, Puerto Rico, and the US Virgin Islands!

You will feel like you are a million miles from anywhere, but in fact you are just a mile from Lake Monocan and minutes from the Stoney Creek Golf Courses (open year round). The Mountain Lodge, Devil's Knob golf course, spa, and ski slopes are just 20 minutes away.

Living in the valley foothills means you are 20 minutes closer to all the area attractions: museums, historical sites, caverns, wineries, Charlottesville, and the University of Virginia. It also provides a greater sense of the solitude and serenity of mountain living, away from the increasingly crowded feeling of the Mountain Resort.

It's your vacation. It's your choice.
