About The Owner

We, Gill and Lona Crittenden, recently purchased and renovated this house. Our favorite hobby is fixing things up to complement their surroundings. Lifelong residents of Richmond, I went to Douglas Freeman and was graduated from Hampden-Sydney College. Lona is a busy caterer in town. We visit the mountain often and enjoy the four season experience that Wintergreen offers.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 2013

Why The Owner chose Central Virginia

We have stayed at Wintergreen many times always seeking spots that created a sense of being on the mountain whether we were indoors or out. Due to our location and interior design we think we've captured just that!

What makes this cottage unique

The house is so close to everything~ still gives you the privacy you seek and a true mountian feel.

Cozy and convenient for families

  • 5 of 5

We came to the cabin to hike around Shanendoah. It's a bit more south than the trails we generally enjoy, but was very convenient with all the Wintergreen Resort amenities. I'd come back in summer or winter to ski.

The cabin itself was very quaint and clean. A bit bare bones so you'll need to bring everything with you (hand soap, salt etc.) even if you're staying for a short time. Probably better for longer stays.

Wonderful Fall Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin for a 30th Birthday Surprise Weekend for my husband. The cabin is even bigger than the photos, and is a perfect cozy getaway. It was also a great size for a large group - we comfortably fit 12 guests in 2 sets of bunk beds, 2 Queens, 1 Pull Out Queen, and 2 Singles.

Kitchen is well stocked with cookware, crock-pot, baking dishes. Living room is large and well decorated with cozy fur blankets and a wood fireplace (wood available on-site). Bonus room that is not pictured with bunk beds is large and matches decor of living room. Washer & Dryer.

Wintergreen is a beautiful hideaway in the hills, pretty close to breweries and cider mills that make for great fall activities for adults. Also hiked to Humpback Rocks, 20 minute drive - 2 mile round trip hike; manageable for most. Be warned - the cabin is at the top of the hill, so it's a little cooler than the Weather Channel makes it out to be - bring a sweater, even if it's predicted to be warm! It makes for the perfect fall weather though - warm days, cool nights! Wintergreen was also the perfect distance for friends to meet from DC, NC, and Virginia Beach.

Lastly, Gill was very attentive to answering questions ahead of time. I highly recommend this place, especially for large groups and pet-owners...and I would return, for sure!

Well kept, mountain getaway. It was a perfect place for our extended family to vacation together. We enjoyed the whole experience of staying there.

Not as expected/Misleading

  • 1 of 5

Communication with owner was great prior to receipt of my money but after, communication was non-existent. There were some pretty significant issues with this property and the description is very misleading. We reserved the room for a weekend getaway in the mountains with our dogs (1st week of July). The owner had no issues with our pets but failed to mention that air-conditioning was not available in the property. This was cruel as our dogs were panting and drinking water non-stop. We had to leave the property a day early because of the issue. When I emailed the owner to inform him, there was no response. If he had bothered to apologize or respond, I might not have had to write this review. The fact that he completely ignored my concern for myself and my pets was very inconsiderate. This was highly upsetting. I knew that I was not going to get my money back for that third night but I was not going to accept the fact that the description for this property is misleading and inaccurate. The property was not very clean, we found dust and dead bugs on the counter in the kitchen. It was too hot for summer vacationing. Owner indicated that property had been updated. It looked like it was pretty much out of the 1970's/1980's as far as most of the rental was concerned. Your pictures, description, and initial communication skills were very misleading. I am just glad that none of us had any severe medical issues as a result of the heat. I would never recommend this property to anyone.

Owner's Response: This review has surprised us needless to say as we have built a good reputation with renters. The guest indicated an early departure due to weather and referenced no other dissatisfaction or issue with my home. In fact, she acknowledged her oversight on air conditioning. Most houses do not have air, especially ones located near top of the mountain. Travelling at this time, I attempted a phone call to show my concern. In hindsight, upon my return the following week I should have reached out online again. It is paramount that my guests have a pleasant stay. I have invested too much time and effort for this to be my desired result. I kindly ask any potential guests to read my reviews and decide for themselves if my property meets their needs. My property manager lives on the mountain and can assist renters when I am unavailable. My wife and I, in my opinion, have created a comfortable and inviting mountain cabin which the pictures clearly illustrate. Lastly, I encourage anyone to call me should any questions or concerns arise during their search for a property. Thank you for your time and consideration, Gill Crittenden

Amazing Cabin In The Mountains

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for Memorial Day Weekend. The House is huge and beautifully decorated. The decorum embraces so much peace and beauty. Beware....the amenities associated with the property i.e. Wintergreen indoor pool and lake aren't free. You have to pay to visit those areas. Other than that no complaints~
