Why Barbara Bankowski chose Wintergreen

Our house is located on beautiful Blackrock Drive less than one-half mile to the Inn at Wintergreen, where you will find wonderful restaurants and many special events planned by the Inn.

What makes this house unique

We just keep getting better: we take pride in our home and it couch, new dining room table, newly installed downstairs bath, new hardwood floors throughout first floor, freshly painted rooms, new furniture/beds in bedrooms. To us, you're our guests. We try to take care of the little things so that you can enjoy your stay. We have plenty of firewood stacked up at the back door; our gas grill is on the front deck. Closets have plenty of towels, kitchen has all the tools a serious cook would want.

But probably the best deal is our special weekend deal. I don't know about you, but for me, after a day on the slopes, I don't want to have to drive home, sitting in my ski clothes. With our weekend special rate, you can stay as long as you like on the third day (or even stay till the next day!) So, instead of rushing home Sunday, why not take advantage of the third night, and relax by the fire before driving home? You may even decide to leave Monday morning!

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The interior was very spacious with vaulted ceilings, the house was very clean and everything was provided including towels, pots, pans, plates, and silverware. It was a great place to spend a weekend with friends, and we would definitely come back!

Great Experience

  • 5 of 5

We sent 3 weeks in this house with a number of family and friends. It was an ideal venue, with plenty of room for everyone. Although we spent most of our time "chill-axing" around the table on the deck, we found the rest of the house to be very comfortable. The kitchen was simply fantastic, with heaps of storage space and room to manoeuvre (even with a house full of people). The addition of the second fridge in the cellar allowed us to stock up on enough food to keep everyone happy.

The bedrooms had nice closet/dresser space so we could easily unpack our gear.The beds were cosy and as we got hit with a heatwave (90*-95* for 3 weeks), the ceiling fans in the bedrooms, kitchen, and lounge room were a highly appreciated bonus.

Barbara was a very helpful landlady and we hope that we can stay in her house again some day.

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here and the owners were very responsive/available for questions! Lovely fireplace and an open floor plan so perfect for larger groups. There are also doors the block off the hallways where the bedrooms are which was great for our group who had a few small children up early - it helped block out the noise! We can’t wait to go back.

Wintergreen stay

  • 3 of 5

To start off the house was very clean. The lock on the front door was getting extremely loose and took several tries to open at night. My children and their children all came together for the apple festival. Living quarters were a little too small for my taste, but managed. Bedrooms were extremely small but the beds were comfortable. If you are coming in the winter I would be very careful, as this driveway was very steep. You may need 4 wheel or all wheel drive. The kitchen needs updating with new pots and pans. This house in my opinion is in need of some updating. When we first arrived the house smelled of dampness. It has been very wet in Wintergreen and the house is surrounded by trees which could of caused this smell. After we got the heaters working, the smell went away. Barbara was extremely helpful from beginning to end. The price was right with one night free. However, we left on Sunday and did not use the third night.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We try to offer a great home at a very affordable price. Our third night free policy is very well appreciated by our renters. We are very proud of our home and work very hard to keep it spotlessly clean and are constantly improving the house. Over the past 10 years we have installed new wood flooring, put in a new bathroom, all new furniture and appliances, new bedding and beds, and painted every room. Just this past year we have painted the entire outside of house and added new lighting and steps Inside we painted several rooms and added a new stove. During the winter we provide plowing and our driveway is kept clear of snow and ice. Our maintenance services are always available just in case. Issues such as your concern about the door lock are checked as soon as we learn of them

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I booked this house for a gaming weekend get-together. The place is fantastic and the scenery is gorgeous - we went in August and the whole mountain was covered in ferns. Parking was great, there's a market a couple minutes down the road, and everything was very convenient. Clean, comfortable, plenty of hot water. The owner was very responsive and had great information throughout the whole booking experience.
