Charming. Including the three bears
Very nice property, including all the essentials. Could use a bit updating. Gave the community manager one star only because we had no communication with him/her.
We just stayed at this property at the end of June 2019. It has been recently renovated with new windows and sliding doors. I wasn't sure what to expect given some of the older reviews but we found the home to be clean, airy, and very comfortable. We used the gas grill three times and did some other light cooking in the kitchen without any problems. We also did laundry and the washer/dryer worked well and was quiet. The setting of the house is serene and beautiful. We enjoyed eating meals on the back deck as well.
Another review said the house smelled strongly of wood smoke. We noticed a very slight (nice!) wood smell when we got there but it wasn't overwhelming and since the house is heated with a wood stove it should be expected.
The setting is accurate as described. We walked out of the front door, turned left walking 20 yards down the street, and were able to pick up a short trail leading to the Appalachian Trail. There are many other beautiful hikes on the wintergreen property as well. We would rent this house again if we decide to return to Wintergreen.
If you plan on using any of the Wintergreen kids activities, double check with Wintergreen itself that they are open. We had a Monday - Friday stay and none of the kids activities like bungee trampoline, zip line, mini golf, etc. were open until Thursday afternoon.
All in all a really relaxing stay! We recommend Devil's Backbone brewery for dinner. We also went to the Rhodes pool which was fine as well. Thanks for a great vacation!
It was ok
The door knob for the exterior door was broken on the inside, it was falling off so it made it difficult to exit the house because the door stuck so badly. The back door stuck really badly too and the screen door was broken. The kitchen was updated with plenty of dishes and glasses and utensils, nice countertops. The downstairs bathroom for the kids was updated but the upstairs bathroom for the master was terrible. The sink was so low, I needed to basically be on my knees to use it. There was only the one plastic shower curtain in each of the tubs, not an interior liner and exterior curtain. The drapes in the master were badly stained. The blinds in the family room were ripped. The carpet was very low grade, it was like indoor outdoor carpet, and there was carpet in the master bathroom which I thought was strange. Needs a bit of updating and TLC. The price was right for what we got.
Dirty, smokey, falsely advertised.
Stains on all the carpets. Smells like smoke. Don’t stay here if you have allergies of any kind. Generally unclean and uncomfortable. Only sleeps 8 if you have tiny children who can share a double bed in the same room with the bunk beds. Falsely advertised from the start. Steer clear of this one.
Nice and cozy.
My family and I enjoyed staying in this cabin. It was just right and cozy. Although there were a few minor things that didn't work, (remote for fans) and some upgrades throughout the cabin, everything else was great. The only thing that would have made it perfect is if had snowed. My grandson was so looking forward in snow tubing.
Overall good experience...but
The front door wouldn’t lock because the dead bolt didn’t line up with the metal insert on the door frame...looks like it’s been that way a while. Also one of the side window frames is rotted and also looks like it’s been that way a while...had to close the window from the outside (both security issues). I would rent again but not the same house...would also like a fire place.
Thank you for the information. We are sorry for these problems happended during your stay. We have placed orders to replace the door and windows. Hope the contractors can get these jobs do very soon.
