About Chris Cox

I'm a Hokie alumni and father of 7 year old boy and girl twins. I currently reside in Richmond where I work as a physician assistant. My latest interest is mud/obstacle races; athough my 40 year old body is saying Enough!

Chris Cox purchased this house in 2009

Why Chris Cox chose Wintergreen Resort

I grew up in the mountains surrounding Roanoke; and although, love Richmond, I often miss the mountains. Wintergreen is the perfect escape from city life. When I first purchased the property, I thought we would enjoy it most during the ski season. However, spring thru fall is my favorite time to escape the scorching temperatures of Richmond. In fact, the temperature is often 15 degrees cooler on the mountain top, and with the continual breeze at the cabin's particular location, you will think you've found heaven on earth! There's truly nothing more relaxing.

What makes this house unique

When I purchased the property 5 years ago, (three years after it was moved from another location on the mountain!) it was in rough shape. I poured my heart and soul into renovating it. Five years later, it has a new roof, skylights, stained decks, 3 completely renovated bathrooms and fresh interior and exterior paint. There is also new furniture throughout - a mantle, an antler chandelier in great room and log chandelier over the dining table. I hope you will come to love and cherish this very special vacation home as much as I do!

Beautiful home, conveniently close to resort

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I recently stayed at Cox's Cabin because we were planning to ski at Wintergreen. The cabin is even more beautiful when you see it in person! It has all the basic amenities in the kitchen, plenty of towels, blankets, etc. were available. In the days leading up to our trip, Chris sent very thorough instructions for arrival and departure, so the process of checking in was painless. We are looking forward to staying here again in the future, thank you for a great experience!

Well equipped cabin near the slopes

  • 5 of 5

The cox cabin was fantastic. Chris quickly responded to any questions we had and even allowed us to check in early which was a bonus as I know this isn’t always possible.

The cabin had everything from a Weber grill to a fire place to a griddle to make pancakes on. We thoroughly enjoyed the ring game even though the average temperature was 9 degrees while there. It does get quite dry with the floor heaters and the fire going but they had their own humidifiers but I would bring extra to make sure you don’t get too stuffy.

There was plenty of firewood, games, and even a Roku to watch the games on ESPN to keep everyone entertained.

My family truly enjoyed our ski vacation over the NYE holiday.

Thank you Chris for a fantastic time.

Cozy and Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a weekend with 4 adults, 4 kids and a baby. It accommodated everyone perfectly and was so comfortable, cozy and clean. We had never been to the Wintergreen area before, and now we can't wait to go back.

Lovely cabin in the center of Wintergreen.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very nice. Fully stocked with anything a guest would need. It is far enough away from the ski area that you get little noise, which adds to the peacefulness of the place. We had one small problem occur while we were there, which the owner had taken care of within two hours. Would recommend this cabin rental to anyone planning a visit to the area.
