2009 TRAVEL GUIDE

T

he temperatures are warmer. The

days are longer. Spring and summer

are the perfect time to get away for a

week or just a weekend. Forget all the

doom and gloom in the news. Pack up

the car, hit the road and have some fun!

The price of a gallon of gas is around

$1 less than last year, which makes

family trips more affordable. And there

are lots of great places to see and

things to do less than a tankful from

your home.

Plan your trip today. We’ve got

pages full of suggestions right here in

the Cooperative Living 2009 Great

Destinations Travel Guide. For more

information on all of the places

advertised here, be sure to fill out the

2009 TRAVEL GUIDE

Catch a glimpse of the rising sun

peeking over the mountains and you

will never be the same.

Lose yourself – or find yourself.

Wintergreen is like that.

Here you can be as active as you want to be or as relaxed as you need to be.

Commanding 11,000 acres along the eastern slopes of Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountains,

Wintergreen Resort is a vacationer’s dream. Here, you’ll discover world-class recreation,

award-winning hospitality, music, education,

culture and an overflow of activities for every

member of your family.

ACCOMMODATIONS

Surrounded by breathtaking views and

nestled in a beautiful mountain setting,

Wintergreen Resort offers tastefully furnished

studios, charming mountain villas and luxurious

condominiums perfect for a romantic getaway,

family holiday or corporate retreat.

GOLF

Our two picturesque courses include 45 holes of true mountain golf. Stoney Creek, designed

by the “U.S. Open Doctor” Rees Jones, flows through the historic Rockfish Valley and its natural

springs and native habitat. Devils Knob, an Ellis Maples design, is an exquisite mountaintop

layout with outstanding tee-to-green conditions, cool breezes, fast greens and is the highest

course in Virginia.

TENNIS

At an elevation of nearly 4,000 feet, our tennis courts are the coolest place to play — it’s

tough to break a sweat! With 19 clay courts and three indoor deco-turf courts as well as instruction

at The Wintergreen Tennis Academy, your game will reach new heights.

DINING

No Wintergreen vacation is complete without sampling the fare at each of our fine restaurants.

There’s something for everyone — from fine dining at The Copper Mine and Devils Grill

to the family-friendly options at The Edge and The

Stoney Creek Bar & Grill, each of our restaurants

offer tempting menus in a unique setting.

OTHER ACTIVITIES INCLUDE:

Twenty-acre Lake Monocan Park — perfect for

swimming, boating, playing in the water, or just

enjoying the beach. Hiking on 30 miles of marked

scenic hiking trails. Wintergarden Spa — Set high

atop the mountain, you’ll find the resort’s most

relaxing feature. And every vacation needs to

include swimming and the Aquatics & Fitness Center fits the bill with an indoor pool, a heated

outdoor pool, hot tubs, sauna, steam room and a well-equipped exercise center.

Win!

GIVEAWAY INCLUDES:

Accommodations for 2 in a one-bedroom condo for
