Wintergreen Real Estate: Ultimate Vacation Homes

What is Wintergreen?morning-after-276010_1280

Wintergreen is the ultimate retreat.

Nestled into 11,000 acres of lush forest across the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wintergreen Resort offers a scenic and serene escape with plenty of opportunities to get outdoors, including a plethora of amenities for recreational and community activities, and easy access to nearby Charlottesville or Richmond.

So, Why Choose Wintergreen Resort?

Whether you’re looking for a vacation home, a second home, or a primary home, Wintergreen offers plenty of amenities, easy access, and outstanding recreation.

You Can Get Your Nature Fix in All Seasons

The best thing about Wintergreen is that it’s not seasonal.

Winter, spring, summer, and fall, Wintergreen offers residents and visitors alike a chance to get outside and play, move, explore, relax – or whatever else you might want to do.

Spring, summer, and fall offer miles of breathtaking hiking and mountain-biking trails (beautiful and potentially exhausting!), as well as indoor, outdoor, and lake swimming. There are also tennis courts, a mountaintop spa, fly-fishing spots, and two golf courses.

Discovery Ridge offers indoor gaming and outdoor activities such as zip lining, tubing, and archery. the Kids Treehouse offers educational and active programs for children.

Winter is right around the corner, and outdoor swimming and high-elevation hikes might not be top of your to-do list right now. So let’s talk about winter in Wintergreen. Whether you’re a skier, a boarder, a skater, or a tuber, this is your spot. Even if winter sports aren’t your thing, the resort has alternatives – from dining and feasting to live music, movies, and shows, to crafting and educational activities.

Home to an Award-Winning Ski Resort

The projected opening of the ski slopes is December 12, 2015!

With varied sections of trail ranging from beginner to expert and including lighted trails for night skiing, a terrain park, and a terrain park, it’s easy to see why Wintergreen offers some of Virginia’s best skiing.

Along with miles of downhill trails and plenty of rails, boxes, and tabletops for honing your freestyle skills, Wintergreen Resort offers rentals and lessons for beginners, NASTAR racing for the fast and the furious, and kids ski programs for little ones. In addition, Shamokin Ice offers public skating, and Ridgely’s Fun Park is a great place for kids to discover winter excitement.
