Eagle's Lookout is located in Wintergreen's Treeloft Village, just 100 steps from the ski slopes. Our house delivers year-round Southwest views from almost every room. Adjacent to protected greenspace and actually perched above a scenic overlook, you'll enjoy the incredible sunsets in a quiet, peaceful setting and be the first to take advantage of new snow by rolling out of bed and onto the slopes! In the warmer months, it is also within walking distance of the Mountain Inn, shopping and restaurants, Blackrock Market, the Discovery Ridge Adventure Center and multiple scenic hiking trailheads. You can even watch the 4th of July fireworks from the slopes across the street!
All the comforts of home during your mountain getaway... Inside, vaulted ceilings and a wall of windows open the space. The updated kitchen and baths all boast granite counters and new fixtures. The dining area seats 6-7 people comfortably, and the living room features leather seating and a wood burning fireplace for cozy evenings. The master bedroom has a queen bed and private bath, and the 2nd downstairs guest room has a queen bed and bunked single beds. A spiral staircase leads to the upstairs loft bedroom with two sets of bunks and its own tv area with video games. Great for the kids! All rooms have flatscreen cable TVs and WiFi internet is included.
We constantly strive to improve Eagle's Lookout. New in 2015, repeat guests will really appreciate our enlarged back deck, with a gas grill and gorgeous year-round view! And a heated mudroom addition, completed in 2011, provides a washer/dryer & plenty of room to suit up for the slopes and store all your gear out of the way. This is a feature very rare in Wintergreen slope side houses!
Our home is across the street from the Eagle's Swoop run at the top of the Big Acorn Lift. This ski area is rated intermediate. Eagle's Swoop is one of the first runs to open each season and operates for both day & night sessions. It is only about a 2-minute walk to the slope… Easy to stop home for cocoa or ski to the Mountain Inn for dinner, yet far enough so you won't be bothered by the snowblowers and night skiers in the evenings. Come and enjoy!
And don't forget, Wintergreen Resort is so much more than just a winter getaway! It is a multi-seasonal family destination comprised of 125 acres of skiing, championship golf courses (18 holes on the mountain, 27 in the valley-open year round!), a nationally ranked tennis program, Wintergarden Spa, summer music festival, 30+ miles of hiking trails that connect to the Appalachian Trail, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, fishing, kayaking, and relaxing at Lake Monacan beach. (Guest of Member passes available to access golf and the Wintergarden fitness center/pools, resort guest fees will apply.)

We love the mountains, any time of the year! Eagle's Lookout is not just a rental, it is truly our home away from home and we visit frequently. Unfortunately we can't live there full-time (yet!), so we're happy to be able to share the house with others who will equally appreciate our peaceful mountain getaway.

Wintergreen Resort has so much to offer year round. Our location is perfect for skiers in winter and hiking spring-fall. Easy access to the many resort amenities. But hands down, we choose this house for the mountain views! Really, sometimes we just prefer to spend our time relaxing and enjoying the view from the deck or couch!
With two "tween" children of our own, the house is perfectly set up for 1-2 families, with a separate space for the kids to hang out in the loft. Older children can come and go as they please and hit the slopes or the adventure center on their own while the parents relax.
The view of the mountains and the valley to the east was amazing. Hiking trails were nearby and well marked. The house was clean and well kept and perfect for our group. In warmer weather would have enjoyed the deck and the views. Wintergreen Resort has a ton of great amenities and we will surely come back. We hit the slopes and along with the man made snow we were blessed to have 6 inches of fresh snow on top.
Wonderful last minute weekend getaway. Owners were wonderful to work with. Great location to the slopes and activities. House was the perfect ski lodge home! Equipped with everything you need and more. We will definitely be renting again.
Our family was looking for a long weekend getaway before the end of summer. We usually visit the beach or location involving "water", however we thought we would try something a bit off the beaten path. We really enjoyed the Eagle's Lookout. While grilling and sitting on the deck we felt as if we were "in a tree house", according to our 10 year old son! We were literally nested in the canopy with a beautiful view of the mountains. The house had every thing that we needed. It was well equipped. We brought our 2 doxi's with us and they loved being walked on the ski slope...chasing butterflies! If not for leashes, they would have taken off and lost on the mountain for sure after spotting many deer grazing about!!!! This would really be a hot spot for the avid snow skier as the slope is practically at the Eagle's Lookout front door...very cool! This house is very convenient to Devil's Knob Golf Course (where my husband and son played) and the Discovery Ridge Adventure Center where we zip-lined, bungee trampolined, and summer tubed down the slope!) We had a great visit. Kathryn Puritz (owner) was very pleasant and informative....easy to work with. :o) I was disappointed that we did not get to see any bears!!! Maybe next time! Location was excellent on Wintergreen Mountain. We would stay here again!
Our small family enjoyed a respite from the heat and humidity of Tidewater the first week in August. One morning registered 57 degrees - I'm not kidding! The house was very comfortable and well stocked with anything we needed in kitchen or bathrooms. There is a television and a fan in every room even though we barely used more than a ceiling fan because Mother Nature was much more inviting. We saw deer and a bear, much to our delight. We especially appreciated that the Puritz home has guest passes that allowed us to play golf at Devil's Knob (on top of the mountain). That was a huge draw and was the deciding factor in choosing this listing over others. Kathryn was very responsive to our questions and was so pleasant in her communications. All was a smooth transaction.
We enjoyed our vacation to Eagle's Lookout. We participated in the golf experience as well as the silence of nature.
Liked seeing the bear and deer below the deck. A real treat.
Also it was nice that the owners had the decks freshly painted.
We plan on going back next year :)
We recently spent three days at Eagles Lookout and the property was exactly what we needed. With two bedrooms and a loft, the house was great for four adults and three kids. When we were looking for a place to stay, we wanted something very close to the slopes. We found that this location is ideal for skiers. Located near the top of the Eagles Swoop slope, we were thirty yards from our front door to the slope. The house is located across the street from the slopes but the walk was nothing. The owners were great and very accommodating. If you are a decent skier and can navigate a more difficult slope like Eagles Swoop, this house is perfect.
