Q1: Is the house
close to the ski slopes?
A1: The house is a 3-5 minute
walk – approximately 75 yards – to the “Tyro”
ski slope. There is an easement path directly to
the slope from Pedlar’s Edge Drive. You can walk
up to the slope in your street shoes and then
sit on a log and change into your ski/snowboard
boots. Your street shoes should be safe if you
leave them there.
Q2: Is the house
close to the Mountain Inn/Wintergarden
A2: The house is not within
walking distance, but is a 3-5 minute drive to
the Mountain Inn and 5-7 minute drive to the
Wintergarden Spa/Indoor pool. The Resort has a
van you can call for a ride.
Q3: How many
people can stay at the house?
A3: No more than 12 total
people, unless there are infants in
port-a-cribs. You will note the very nice
comments from prior guests about the cleanliness
and amenities. When the house is overloaded, bad
things can happen and we want to avoid that
situation. We will not agree to more people, so
if your party is larger, please seek other
accommodations – thanks.
Q4: What does
the nightly rate include?
A4: The nightly rental rate,
which varies during the year and during the week
(weekend vs weekday), reflects demand. Further,
the rate includes cleaning and other fees. We
will provide you all linens and towels for 12
Q5: How do we
A5: We use a combination lock
on the doors and will provide the combination
(which changes frequently) upon final payment
before your stay.
Q6: Where can we
A6: Bring your food if you can
– the Black Rock Market is expensive (similar to
a 7-11) and the IGA in Nellysford is not very
good. The closest grocery store is the Super
Wal-Mart in Waynesboro – about 30 minutes to the
Q7: Do we have
discounts for skiing/golf/pools/etc.?
A7: No we do not – if you rent
through Wintergreen Resort, you may get a
discount at the pool, but you will pay for it
through a higher rental rate and/or resort fees.
We charge a very reasonable rate for a very nice
Q8: Can we check
in early and/or leave late?
A8: It may be possible, but we
need to discuss it before you get to the house.
In some situations, there is a short window for
the cleaners to get in the house and they need
every minute to get the house ready. We will
accommodate your request if flexibility exists.
Please be courteous to the cleaners and leave at
the agreed upon time (often they are waiting and
watching for you to leave).
Q9: Can we move
around the furniture to suit our needs?
A9: No, no, no, please no!
Moving the furniture causes damage (we’ve seen
it happen) and it is difficult for our cleaners
to get it back into position.
