Where Would You Love to Own a Vacation Home?

Virginia’s award-winning Wintergreen Resort is comprised of two unique areas: the mountaintop community of Wintergreen and the valley community of Stoney Creek. Both offer an irresistible resort lifestyle and beautiful vacation properties.

There are, however, a few distinctions between their lifestyles and their real estate options. To help you decide where to purchase a vacation home or condo at Wintergreen Resort, let’s compare what each community has to offer.

The Lifestyle of Wintergreen vs. Stoney Creek

Both Wintergreen and Stoney Creek offer plenty of excuses to enjoy the fresh mountain air and Virginia’s four-season climate. However, each community has its own unique amenities, events, and activities.

Wintergreen offers a plethora of condominium and townhome communities sprinkled throughout the mountaintop. Many of these communities are in ultra-convenient locations, so you can easily find ski-front condos, walk-to-ski condos, and golf-front condos.

However, Wintergreen does not have a wide selection of single-family homes. If you are looking for a house, though, be sure to consider homes for sale on Devils Knob Loop. These homes offer unrivaled views of the mountains and valley.

As for Stoney Creek, this community offers more single-family home options, including golf course properties and waterfront properties. The 55+ community of RoseWood Village offers new low-maintenance homes.

A Vacation Home ~ Wintergreen Resort

What You Haven’t Considered About Owning a Vacation Home

Wouldn’t it be great to own a place at the beach, in the mountains, or by the lake? If you are seriously considering buying a vacation home, you have probably weighed many of the pros and cons already.

But you should carefully consider everything before you buy a vacation home. Have you taken these additional costs and benefits into account?

The Overlooked Costs of Homeownership

As any experienced home buyer knows, there are additional annual costs that come with owning a home, such as property taxes, home insurance, and any association fees.

Make sure you consider maintenance costs, as well. If you decide to rent out your property, you might want to invest in housekeeping or property management services. MarketWatch outlines a few additional costs you may face.

Additional Fun: Resort-Style Amenities

golf course at sunriseIn popular vacation destinations, such as Wintergreen, you can purchase a second home in a resort community. This gives you access to a range of award winning amenities that include two golf courses, spa services, skiing, winter sports, tennis, swimming pools, and dozens of events. For more details, visit Wintergreen Resort.

Just remember, you may have to pay additional fees for these amenities.

It’s a Good Investment, But Not a Guaranteed Money Maker

Many vacation homeowners rent their property out to other vacation-goers as a way to earn extra money.

But, as US News & World Report points out, you may not always make money with your vacation home.

Location is Crucial

picking a locationWhen buying any property, whether it’s a primary or second home, location is one of the most important factors in your decision. When choosing a vacation home, consider how much time it will take to get to your home, whether you will need to drive or fly, and if you will be able to visit as often as you want.

You should choose a home that is close to your favorite vacation features (such as a ski resort or private beach) and close to the grocery store, major roads or an airport, and fun things to do.

We Can Help You Weigh Your Options

Investing in a vacation home can be a great decision, but it should not be taken lightly. We can answer any questions you have about finding, buying, or renting out Wintergreen Real Estate. Contact Us and let’s talk.
