Tall Oaks Lodge, Wintergreen Resort VA
You have found the perfect destination for your ski weekend, family vacation or golf outing! Tall Oaks Lodge is located in Stoney Creek at Wintergreen, in the beautiful Rockfish Valley. It offers more than 5000 square feet of living space arranged in a fascinating array of gathering areas, spacious bedrooms, cozy nooks, and forest views.
Come enjoy with four bedroom, four bathroom home. A large stone fireplace separates the living room from the dining room, which seats ten at a large oak table. The dining room leads to the kitchen that features top of the line appliances and a breakfast bar that seats four. The kitchen shares open space with the family room, a comfortable space two steps down, with a soft couch and another large stone fireplaceand a 32" flat-screen high definition TV. Down the hall from the dining room is the pentagon room with a table suitable for playing cards, assembling jigsaw puzzles, or feeding kids. Next to the pentagon room is the media room; another comfortable couch and overstuffed chair and a 27" TV with VCR and DVD players.
The solarium, between the media room and the living room, opens to both rooms and to the outside. Upstairs is the "den," two overstuffed chairs, walls of windows and bookcases, a small stereo, a wood burning stove, and it overlooks the living room. Down the hall from the den is a small alcove with a wooden doll house and a rocking horse for the smaller guests. Next to the alcove is the play room, with a queen-sized pullout couch, a foosball table, and a 40" flat-screen high definition TV with VCR and DVD players.
The solarium opens to a small deck ten steps up from ground level, with a long bench built into the railing and a small table and two chairs. Behind the dining room is a stone patio with a table and chairs, next to the gas grill. Down the way sits the screened gazebo with porch swing overlooking the Rockfish Valley. The large lower deck is separated from the house and features a picnic table, a hammock, and several lounge chairs.The back yard fence will keep small children from wandering away or rolling down the hill. Picturesque stone walls weave gracefully around the terraced grounds, defining the contours and linking the house to the earth. Set on five and a half acres, you can barely see the neighboring houses.

Hi, I love places that have interesting things to do for both young and old. I also love places that have elbow room for a true family gathering. With family space, family fun, and places to see and do, Tall Oaks Lodge turned out to be just the perfect fit. Here are some of my daughter's comments about the stay: "Tall Oaks was a perfect vacation for our family and extended family. The house has lots of room to spread out in and felt like home the moment we walked in the door. There were activities for all ages that include a collection of movies, music, board games and fuzz ball table and doll house. October was the perfect time of year with cool weather and beautiful color on the trees. Plus, all the attractions were less crowded. Monticello, Stonewall Jackson's house, VMI, the Natural Bridge and caverns, as well a Appomattax Courthouse were easy drives and great day trips for the history buffs. Also check out the brand new Monticello Artisian Trail." My daughter and I had an easy time coordinating the arrangements with Katie. (My daughter is very well traveled, and I will say, that if she has great things to say about a visit then take that to the bank!!) We want to thank Katie for sharing her beautiful home and estate. From the get go it was a total pleasure. Many thanks to Katie and 3rd Home. My family truly appreciated this week and they all had a grand time!! Greg Lau, Ann-Kristine Thrift and Family ”
