Blue Ridge Commons
Wintergreen offers two main housing options during the winter. The majority of international associates stay in The Blue Ridge Commons (BRC). When The Blue Ridge Commons is at full capacity, we also offer housing in condos. Both options are located in the heart of Wintergreen and are within walking distance to most work locations.
The Blue Ridge Commons complex has three levels and contains 16 separate apartments. Each fully furnished apartment has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and kitchen and living room areas, and can accommodate up to 6 associates (2 per bedroom). In addition, each unit has free Internet, a large wall-mounted flat-panel TV, and free multi-channel cable service with two premium movie channels.

Laundry facilities are available in the Blue Ridge Commons. The cost to wash clothes is $1.25 per load and the cost to dry clothes is $1.25 per load.
Upon arrival, associates who choose to stay in associate housing are required to pay a security deposit of $300.00 to cover any damages caused to the property during the time of occupancy. The deposit must be made by cash or traveler’s check to the Human Resources Department.

The apartments and condos will be inspected after all associates in that unit have moved out. If the lease is fulfilled to the satisfaction of Wintergreen Partners Inc. and the unit is in the same condition as it was at the beginning of the lease, the security deposit less a $75.00 cleaning fee will be refunded approximately 4-6 weeks following your departure of the property. Expenses from damage or excessive utility bills will be deducted from each resident’s deposit.
We hope that you will find the availability and type of Wintergreen’s associate housing attractive as you choose a destination for your cultural exchange program.
