A summertime view of Wintergreen Resort's golf cource house and greens.

Wintergreen Resort

Virginia’s premier four season resort sits boldly on the spine of the Blue Ridge Mountains with commanding views stretching to the George Washington National Forest. With scenery every bit as breathtaking as the adjacent Shenandoah National Park, visitors to Wintergreen know even as they climb the entry that they have found a place of delight and intrigue.

Summer guests can enjoy 45 holes of top-flight golf, a zip-line, pools, nationally ranked tennis facilities, summer tubing, and the mountain lake and playground that are Lake Monacan. Oh yeah, and a spectacular spa, dining options from a sports bar to white tablecloth elegance, and a talent-rich summer music series.

Fall colors in the Shenandoah Valley are nationally famous and Wintergreen guests often arrive at the resort via the renowned Blue Ridge Parkway and/or Skyline Drive, two of America’s designated Scenic Byways which pass within a mile of the resort entrance. Once on site, guests enjoy miles of trails that are the domain of the Nature Foundation of Wintergreen. In all, Wintergreen is comprised of 11,000 acres that have made, and will continue to make, virtually any list of “Most Beautiful Places to Visit.”

And then the snow flies — either from the sky or from the brand new state-of-the-art snowmaking infrastructure — and all thoughts turn to sliding downhill for 1,000 vertical feet. Except, of course, for those preoccupied by their appointment at the Wintergarden Spa and Aquatics Center, or reservations by the fireplace in the bistro or even tomorrow’s scheduled adventure in the tubing park.

Wintergreen is a delight for the senses and an experience as fresh as the dogwoods and rhododendrons which are ubiquitous there in spring. To learn more, visit www.wintergreenresort.com.
