Overview

About the property

3 Bedroom, 2.5 bath. Perfect blend of country life and modern sophistication.

The Space:

The home includes a private master suite on the main level with an ultra-comfortable king size bed, private deck with a two person hot tub, and a large master bathroom with heated floors and a huge walk in shower. The upstairs loft has a very comfortable queen sized bed, with a closet and amoire. Guests in the loft typically share the master bathroom for bathing, though there is a powder room available as well. All the beds are made with high quality designer linens and pillows. On the main floor you will find a truly awesome and well equipped gourmet kitchen with all the bells and whistles that every cook will love, plus a large dining area, great room and beautiful rock fireplace. Off the kitchen is a wonderful library with a large movie collection and an assortment of books for your enjoyment. You will also find high speed wireless internet, and a 55” flat screen TV with surround sound.

Our large deck is the perfect outside space with beautiful mountain views and screened in gazebo with a double hammock, perfect for lounging in the treetops.

On the lower level there is a large separate studio (not accessible from main house) which we've recently remodeled (June '14) to include a king sized bed and double futon couch. Cozy and light-filled, the studio also features a private entrance, beautiful rock wood burning fireplace, a full bath, and a private deck. The Studio serves as a second, private master suite, making Five Peaks very flexible – two couples can each enjoy a private suite, or larger groups can sleep two in the semi-private loft with queen sized bed, up to four in the Studio, with the king sized bed and comfy double futon, and two in the master suite. The Studio is never rented separately from the main house ensuring privacy for you and your party.

The studio will be made available only when the paid group includes four or more people, unless special arrangements are made in advance.

Guest Access:

Guests will have access to the entire home and property. You will have complete privacy from the moment you arrive. Guests will have access to all amenities, including the washer and dryer, and the garage with automatic door opener.

Interaction with Guests:

While we do not usually greet our guests, we will communicate extensively with you prior to your arrival and send you detailed driving directions, arrival instructions and a house manual. Once you arrive you will have access to us via phone and or email. If you need to meet us, we can be available to do so on short notice.

The Neighborhood:

There is great hiking on the nearby Appalachian Trail, and dozens of other wonderful hiking trails nearby. Or go biking on the beautiful country roads of Nelson County and the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway. Golf, Tennis, skiing, snowboarding, tubing, swimming, and rock climbing, are all right here at Wintergreen Resort. You can also find great fishing in nearby ponds and rivers. Kayak or canoe on the nearby Rockfish, Tye and James Rivers.

In the spring, summer and fall don’t miss the local farmers market, just a 5 minute drive down the road, where you can pick up fresh local meats, veggies, and crafts. Or visit one of the many local farms for fresh fruit and produce.

Getting Around:

You'll need a car to visit Five Peaks and to enjoy nearby attractions. There is no reliable public transit serving Five Peaks. Although you can bike to the farmers market, lake and hiking trails.

Other Things to Note:

Guests will have access to pools and tennis courts at the Wintergreen Resort. You'll need to present your guest passes, which you'll find upon arrival at Five Peaks. We love well behaved, house trained dogs, and their responsible owners. They are welcome at Five Peaks, but please read below (the Dogs Allowed section) for some reasonable restrictions when you bring your pet.

While Five Peaks is very, very private, she is located in a resort community, and we request that you respect the neighborhood's privacy during your stay.

Dogs Allowed:

We love well behaved, house trained dogs, and their responsible owners. They are welcome at Five Peaks. With more than 1 acre of wooded yard for your friends to play, and expansive, multilevel decks that can be closed off to keep your doggies close, your dogs will be as happy as you are that you've brought them to this special place. If you're bringing your well behaved dog, let us know and we'll provide comfy dog beds. and bowls. But the little varmints can be really hard on the furniture, so please understand that YOUR DOGS ARE NOT ALLOWED ON THE BEDS OR OTHER FURNITURE. If we find excessive dog hair on the furniture, or dog pee anywhere in the house, we will withhold up to $150.00 from your damage deposit depending on the damage. If just dog hair on the couches, the charge will be less. If the dog(s) pee in the house, the cost will be more.

The Studio (2nd Master) only rents for 50.00 for night.

About Debra Ray

We're serial re-modelers, and Five Peaks has been our focus for the past 14 years. Debra is a retired Technical Recruiter, passionate designer and Michael is a structural engineer. We have two wonderful dogs and love to travel. Our most recent overseas trip was to the south of France. We love to cook, and that shows in the gourmet kitchen at Five Peaks.

We love hosting guests, and get great pleasure when we know our guests are happy!

Debra Ray purchased this house in 2013

Why Debra Ray chose Central Virginia

We believe Five Peaks is the perfect blend of country life and modern sophistication. This thoughtfully designed private mountain hideaway is nestled in the treetops, and is the perfect getaway to the Charlottesville/Wintergreen Area.

What makes this house unique

The first time we saw Five Peaks, the flow of the house drew us in immediately. We added the deck and gazebo during our first year, which truly created a connection from the main living area inside, to an awesome living area outside. We have always found the home to be rejuvenating, relaxing, and romantic.

We decided to begin sharing Five Peaks with other guests in December of 2013, and have been overwhelmed with the positive response from our guests. Five Peaks is new to the Homeaway family, but not new to providing a wonderful guest experience. See the "Guestbook comments from the manager" just below for past guest reviews.

Absolutely Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

Warm, cozy and relaxing place for all my family to gather. My family came together from different states to attend a wedding. This home was perfect. Private studio room for my newlywed daughter and loft for the other daughter. Great kitchen and outdoor space. Thank you Debra for providing this absolutely wonderful home for us.

Wonderful Stay at Five Peaks

  • 5 of 5

A great place to come "home" to after a day out hiking and visiting historical sights. Quiet, spacious, comfortable, and well supplied. It was a good location for us in regards to visiting New Market, Monticello, and Charlottesville. Debra certainly wanted to be sure that we were happy.

Heaven on a mountain top

  • 5 of 5

We had a excellent experience from the beginning with these owners. They are very kind, helpful and communicate well. I feel we developed a friendship. Our vacation there was a amazing experience that we will never forget. The home is stunningly beautiful and the views are breath taking. This home has everything you could want on a dream vacation. A welcoming library, beautiful patios, a gourmet kitchen, a walk in shower ( which was wonderful) , a spacious home for families and a hot tub off the master on your own private balcony. The views from the nice large deck were so beautiful.We took many photos. It rained for the first two days so we drove to Luray Caverns and that was a fun trip. On our last day it was sunny and warm and we visited the cute little town to see the breweries at Devils backbone and a cider place. We did grocery shop at the IGA in town and there was a antique store. We ate dinner at the Blue Mountain Brewery and the Wild Wolf Brewery. I highly recommend both places for dinner. We did take a hike up to Humpback Rock Gap. It's around 18 miles from the home. Be prepared it's a steep hike straight up the mountain. If you have children please watch closely as there is a cliff up top with no protection from falling over. My husband made it to the top and I think it's almost 3,000 feet high. Very beautiful view from top. This was a wonderful vacation from the warm , relaxing home to the charming town with very friendly locals. We enjoyed some movies too in the evening on the big screen tv. In the family room. We did not build a fire in the fireplace but it's a wonderful touch to the home as well. Debra and Michael could not have been more welcoming and we appreciate everything they did to make our vacation special and unforgettable. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place with us. We will have memories to cherish our lifetime. We are very happy we choose this home to spend our vacation. Much thanks! Bob, Mindy, Brandon & Savannah

You are more than kind and truly have a gift of writing and we can't thank you enough for the wonderful communication, the pictures, your amazing gifts, and getting to know you.

Five Peaks is at the center of a burgeoning local industry of breweries (Devil's Backbone, Blue Mountain, Wild Wolf, Star Hill, etc,), wineries, cideries (Bold Rock), and distilleries (Silverback). The "Brew Ridge Trail" is a very popular tour, including local breweries in Charlottesville. Follow the trail home to Five Peaks.
