With 30 miles of biking and hiking trails, Wintergreen is a small town in Virginia that is mostly made up of Wintergreen Resort—a four-season mountain retreat located in the Blue Ridge Mountains’ eastern slopes, which has been named “Best Ski Resort” by multiple media outlets. There is also an abundance of outdoor activities that visitors come to enjoy, among them skiing, golfing, biking, hiking and mountain climbing. Wintergreen is a great place to come and enjoy the outdoors while escaping the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
The River Bluff House, which is said to be the oldest standing structure in the area, was built in 1805 and stands along the south fork of the Rockfish River. Since 1980, it has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places and serves as a great example of Palladian-style architecture. Skiing is the most popular activity at Wintergreen Resort, although people also come to go hiking, horseback riding, snowboarding, hunting and fishing. The resort is also home to world-class golf and tennis facilities for those who want to participate. Recommended golf courses include Devils Knob on the mountain, and Stoney Creek in the valley—private and group lessons are available. Despite its smaller size, Wintergreen has a variety of restaurants, offering visitors multiple dining options when they visit—ranging from French cuisine to classic American. Bold Rock features a cidery and tap room and is a great place to get a drink, and some of the other restaurants even offer live music on weekends. The resort also has a world-class spa, which offers indoor and outdoor pools, exercise equipment and relaxing treatments to nurture the body. The resort’s Discovery Ridge Adventure Center also offers fun for the whole family, including miniature golf, rock climbing, and even a skate park.
The city of Charlottesville is just 40 minutes away from Wintergreen and is home to Shenandoah National Park, as well as Monticello—Thomas Jefferson’s famed plantation home.
