Great location
90% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
Our place is located in the Wintergreen Ski Resort, which includes Golf Club, Wintergarden Pool and Spa, restaurants and dining. Use our mountaintop retreat to relax and unwind, and enjoy our big dining room table, high ceilings, and tons of natural light. Galileo is great for families (with kids) as well as big groups. Parties or events not allowed.

The space
Galileo!! We gather our inspiration from this amazing scientist, scholar and explorer for our eclectic four bedroom under the stars. The house is spacious with triple decks outside for mountain and star gazing, and it is amazing when the leaves turn colors in the fall. Galileo at Wintergreen is a perfect gathering space for a long weekend getaway from city life. There is plenty of space for everyone. We are located near the top of Wintergreen mountain and less than 2 miles to the ski pavilion, less than a mile to Devil's Knob Golf Course, and 1 mile to Wintergarden Pool and Spa. The community pool, which you will have access to (in the summertime), is within walking distance. With three full baths and a half bath, Galileo is a wonderful accommodation for 8-10 people. As you arrive, there are spots to take off snowy boots and gear in the foyer or the garage before proceeding into our comfy living spaces. There are three levels of living space. The top level has a loft walkway looking down on the living area, a master en suite with a queen bed, and an amazing view from its own private balcony. The main floor has an open living/dining room and kitchen, and a master en suite with a king sized bed. The main deck is shared between the dining, living and master bedroom. The lower level has a jack & jill suite with a king bed and a comfy twin pullout in each room (2 kings and 2 twins total), and a deck of it's own, as well. There is also a little bonus room, perfect for kids games and movies, or a quiet space to work or read. The bonus room has two convertible seats that convert to twin sized floor mattresses. Galileo at Wintergreen is a great house for entertaining, including a dining room table that seats up to 10. The artwork that we have collected from our travels all over the world makes for great conversation starters, too! And one more bonus space: a beautiful billiards table in our heated garage.

Where you’ll be

Roseland, Virginia, United States

Our location is perfect! We are very close to the Wintergreen Resort, golf courses, pools and spas, festival sites, and hiking on Skyline drive. A short drive away is route 151, boasting many wineries, breweries, orchards, distilleries and restaurants. Downtown Charlottesville is less than an hour away, and Crozet is about 40 minutes drive. Our neighborhood is made up of mostly rental homes, and is therefore quiet and well kept. You will feel as if you have escaped into the trees and the stars.

There are many restaurants within the resort, and a short drive away. The grocery stores are a bit of a drive "down mountain."

Local attractions include historic sites such as Thomas Jefferson's Monticello, James Madison's Ash Lawn Highland, James Monroe's Montpelier and a slew of award winning wineries and breweries. Local festivals abound in the summer and fall.

J.R. can be best described as a world traveling explorer with the occasional strange idea and a passion for music. Carrie is a professor, scientist and curious thinker. We currently split our time between Madison, Wisconsin, Wintergreen and Charlottesville, Virginia. J.R. has previously lived in Europe, the Middle East and Central America. He is a former Scientist, Restaurant Manager, US Army Officer and a Geo-Political/Terrorism Analyst for the US Dept of Defense. When Carrie isn't eyeball deep in dense academic prose, or consulting for our business, she loves traveling anywhere in the world she can. We can frequently be found sitting in a cafe plotting our next adventure.
