About the property

SPACIOUS INDOOR AND OUTDOOR SPACE - 4000 square feet - Ping Pong for rainy days

Hello Travelers, Adventure Lovers,

If you haven’t been to the Wintergreen Resort area recently or haven’t been here during the “other” 3 seasons, then read on to come to see nature, mountains, wildlife, flowers, trees, and magnificent views at every turn.

As children grow and vacations change, awesome 2nd homes aren’t being used by the HomeOwners and they want to share them with you. Personal belongings have been removed and the homes that we manage have been beautified and upgraded to be the best they can be for you, our Guests. In between Guests, the home is meticulously cleaned and Approved Pets are Welcome

Growing fast is the Nelson 151 LOVE THE ROAD and surrounding Blue Ridge Playground. It isn’t a rural road to the mountains anymore.

This lovely and inviting historic Rockfish Valley has found its calling. A few of its best features are: The National Forest, Rivers, Lakes, Walking, Hiking, Fishing, Orchards, Great Food, Picnics, Wine Tasting, Craft Brews, Distillery, Ciders, Natural Hops Growing, Vineyards, Tours, Excursions, Golf, Bicycling, Antique Shopping, Historic Homes, Wildlife, Adventure Horseback Riding,

#1 on the list of features for Adult and Kid visitors is GOOD FOOD. The Chef's kitchen at Chestnut Place Memories Guest Home is well-equipped, stocked with everything you need but the food and drink to make fantastic meals. The propane grill is always waiting. Eat outside on the deck in the sun or shade under the forest trees and the views or eat inside near the kitchen or by the sliding glass doors and cathedral ceilings. What could be better than sitting outdoors with family and friends and kids sitting outside telling each other stories, finding those “teachable” moments. The deck at Chestnut has a chiminea and stacked for those cool mountain evenings, there is something so natural about building a fire, sitting around it and talking or roasting marshmallows or making S’Mores.

To pick up Groceries on your way in to the Blue Ridge Playground Wegmans in Charlottesville is the best grocery store we have ever been to. Oh my, you just can’t believe the food. I would say order online, but no, you need to go in and look at this food. Steaks, Salmon, prepared meals, anything you can think of prepared 20 different ways will be at your finger tips.

If you want to order good food online and let the Grocery Store put it in your car, then call Harris Teeter in the Blue Ridge Shopping Center at Crozet.

And how important is a good restaurant? Treat yourself to a stop and eat good food prepared by a good Chef. Vacationers and visitors go places with good food, and we think that the Wild Wolf Brewery in Nellysford on the way to the Chestnut home has the best. They have a Chef that has been there 5 years and the menu items sound and look good and are so delicious. They also have a courtyard that is Pet Friendly.

Also with great food is the Devil’s Backbone Basecamp Brewputb & Meadows. Not just one Restaurant, but indoor and outdoor eating (some pet friendly). about one year ago Devil’s Backbone was acquired by Anheuser-Busch and the food although good before is now great. They have taken that awesome area and have organized and grown the space. The Summit Restaurant (a relocated and local Arrington reconstructed train depot from 1870) serves breakfast from 7 to noon. DB also have a functioning catering-kitchen and it is a great place to host wedding events, corporate meetings, family get-togethers and more. Love the “Tastings”. We have more recommendations for you.

These mountains have it all. The home is beautiful, and comfortable with indoor, outdoor and rainy day space.

Windows and blinds throughout with sliding glass doors to two large wrap around decks. Soak up the sun and shade.

Hiking is everywhere. 30 pristine miles at the Resort maintained by the Nature Foundation, with the Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, Appalachian Trail and Sherando Lake just a few minutes away.

Try something new. The wine-making in this area is fast becoming the Napa Valley of the East. Try the newest way to make wine a part of your life. Local tasting rooms are popping up everywhere here. Make a quick stop by and taste or have a glass of wine and enjoy the mountain views. If you prefer, taste and select a bottle of wine to go with your dinner.

For example, Flying Fox has a nice tasting indoor and outdoor space right off Route 15. Select a Flying Fox or other local wine from the Wild Wolf Brewery menu.

Make romance, soak up the history and adventure in one of Virginia's best kept secrets. Make awesome memories with family, kids, and friends, and avoid the crowds. Relax when you can, watch movies or sports on the best cable channels, best reception and high-speed wi-fi.

Guests check out and I ask: How was everything? This is what I hear: "Everyone loved the home.” Please check out the 38 straight 5 star Reviews on this Chestnut Place home.

The Family Room is also a Game Room/Toy Room with a wide screen TV, gas fireplace, games, movies, comfortable furniture, sliding glass doors and a Ping Pong Table.

The Chestnut Place Memories home is a spacious, executive/family friendly home that has 3 unique levels with 3 Master Bedrooms. There are 5 bedrooms, 3 full baths, and 2 half baths making up 4000 square feet of living space. Two levels with wrap around decks add to the outdoor living space in the forest. Pack your bags, bring your personal items and groceries, the home is stocked with everything else you will need to run the home and extras.

Ask about our Summer, Fall, Winter, and Spring Vacation Specials that include a stay for 7 days, yet only pay for 5 days at The Chestnut Place Memories Home.

Make the most of your days off. We offer and encourage early check-ins and late check-outs whenever possible.

Come and make forever memories with your family and friends at the Chestnut Place Memories Home.

Three Levels, a living room on one, a family/game room on another. Fireplaces (1 gas and 1 wood-burning) with sliding glass doors onto 2 huge decks that wrap around the house. Each of the three levels has a Master bedroom and full bathroom. Easy access for anyone through the front door and the main floor with Master bedroom, full bath, and deck.

This open, spacious home with awesome hardwood floors is ideal for 1 or more families vacationing together with plenty of get together space and individual privacy. TVs are setup with high-end Nelson Cable and movies. High speed internet. A large TV in the living room, the family room and each Master Bedroom on the 1st and 2nd floor.
