Why The Owner chose Massanutten

Three of our four grandchildren live in Harrisonburg. We found ourselves visiting Harrisonburg at least once a month and we always stayed with our son and his family. When their third child arrived five years ago we knew staying with them just wouldn't work. We needed more room as a family especially when our other two children, their spouses, and our fourth granchild came to visit. So we built a home large enough for our frequent family get-togethers.

What makes this house unique

There are so many things to do and see in the Massanutten area that none of our family ever gets bored. Whether it's hiking in the National Forest that abuts the Resort, or Skyline Drive just a few minutes away, or skiing or tubing in the winter, or using the pools that are available, we all have fun and get a chance to RELAX. The views from our upper deck are spectacular, whether it's the ski slopes in the distance, the golfers on the course below our deck, the sunrise that creeps over our home in the morning, or the sunset that slides below the mountain across the valley. If you want to unwind, this is the place.

Great Location for a Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our staff just returned from a retreat at this location. It's perfect for a getaway to work or play. Very spacious and had everything we needed. Scene from the deck is beautiful. Carol is super to work and communicate with. Would definitely recommend.

Such a wonderful home to rent for a weekend!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying at the Sungazer and as always it was wonderful. We checked in and made ourselves right at home. The house was clean upon arrival and ready to be used by our large extended family! We actually were sad when we arrived and saw that Carol had put the home on the market as this is our favorite Massnautten rental property. We contacted Carol because the grill was not working properly, she immediately emailed me back and had someone at the home immediately to fix the problem. She is the best property owner to deal with in Massanutten because she truly cares about her guests and their stay in her home. Thank you Carol for being such a wonderful homeowner to work with! I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a great house to stay in when visiting Massanutten!

Perfect spot for team outing!!!

  • 5 of 5

We, a group of people with family working together, chose this place for team outing. I'm always very picky in what i select. So before choosing this place, i have gone through each reviews one by one. Then i started emailing Carol, the owner, to know more information about the stay place and the facilities available. I was a little concerned about the drive way which one of the reviewer mentioned. But there is no worry of concern. Its all manageable. The house was beautifully arranged and was all clean. Instructions has been kept everywhere. I read in a review that the fridge is old. Might have been old before, but not now. Its a new good fridge. Beautiful scenery from the deck upstairs and downstairs. Bedrooms are good. There are 3 normal bedrooms and 4 bunk bedrooms with enough quilts and sheets. Bathrooms has everything - toothpaste, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, towels and tissue. Games like puzzles are available if you would like to do it as a team building activity. Kids activities/games are available. Fooseball is a good addition. One suggestion would be that if we can have some new non-stick pans it would be great. Apart from that, we really enjoyed and amazed with our stay there, house being surrounded by beautiful fall colors. We could even meet some deers outside our resort. Kids had so much fun. You will have to follow the instructions mentioned in the house as well as in the contract. If you do that, you are all good. Would highly recommend and go there if we get another chance :)

Great Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Just spent our 4th year of family vacation at Sungrazer in the beautiful Massanutten Resort. This mountain house is fully equipped with every detail to make your vacation a winner. There is plenty of sleeping for families and an assortment of bed choices - bunks, doubles, twins, full and queen. All linens are provided and are very plentiful. The kitchen is full equipped in every way, including a dishwasher. There is also a full-size washer and dryer for your convenience. The house is immaculately clean. There are two wonderful decks to sit out and enjoy the magnificent views of the mountains - the top deck is nice and sunny during the day, while the lower deck provides a nice shady spot to enjoy the mountain scenery also. The overall views are spectacular and it just adds to the amenities of this wonderful home. Sitting in the living room on the upper level provides beautiful vistas of the mountain scenery also. The house is fully air-conditioned which makes it nice on those hot summer days. As I said earlier, this is our fourth year spending our family vacation at Sungrazer. We just hate the week to end as our whole family loves it and this home makes you keep wanting to come back - and that is the way a vacation should be. There are so many activities on the mountain that you really don't have to ever leave it during your stay. Carol Ishinger, the owner of this lovely home, is a real delight to work with and she provides any information that you may need during your stay. So, come stay at Sungrazer - you will love it!!. Sincerely, Patti Rau and Family

Wonderful Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the Sungrazer from June 26 until July 3, 2014. From the very beginning of plans on, Carol was a most attentive and gracious hostess. Our family had four generations present: my mother and her sister, my husband and me, our three children and their spouses and eight grandchildren. The house was very clean and well equipped with cooking utensils, and plenty of linens. We loved looking at the mountains from the deck and from the living room. The children enjoyed the nearby pool, bungy jumping, tubing and race cars. Several of us took a ride on the Skyline Drive delighting in the gorgeous view. We also loved our trip to Luray Caverns. There is so much to do in the area. We definitely recommend this house and this area for a great vacation.

Absolutely No SERVICE at all. We're LOCKED Out with Kids with No Help at all. SAFETY voilations

  • 1 of 5

We have just returned from our stay at the Sungrazer, which was our 1st trip to Massanutten. Massanutten itself was great. A wonderful and peaceful place with Lots of fun for all ages. We have rented a couple of houses, including this house, for our Family/Friends gathering. This house is Big (although with four small rooms) but the service is ABSOLUTELY ZERO. I am not sure how others are saying about good service as the Owner works in a college and lives in DC area (150 miles away). Unlike the other house we have rented (where the owner is reachable in 15+ mins), the owner DOES NOT have anybody onsite/near by to attend to any issue/trouble at all. The house itself is rather old (both look and feel) with very small/old fridge for 18 people. Only two beds are regular beds but all other beds are BUNK beds with old mattresses which are only good for kids. Worst of all, the main door automatic/electronic lock freezes and doesn't open all the time. We were locked out of the house with kids for more than 30 mins. When we've called OWNER several times to get some help, all we could get was her voice mail. OWNER called us back only after FOUR hours. LUCKILY after 30 agonizing mins and with some luck, the automatic door lock opened. Imagine with door locking and waiting with kids on a rainy night with no support and no where to go. Also, ceiling fans in two rooms with Bunk Beds pose SERIOUS SAFETY risk. One of our kids, while climbing the bunk bed, got hit on the face with a fan blade. Luckily we were OK and we didn't have to spend our vacation in an emergency hospital. I believe, this building has to go through the State SAFETY check approval. Last but not least, OWNER likes to keep the Security Deposit stating silly reasons, again, without providing any proof. On the good note, View from the deck is good, which definitely gets "One" star. By the way, this review comes from an engineer with more than 20 yrs of experience, not a young and restless guy. I advise you to look around before choosing this place. But, Those who do choose it, Good Luck.

Owner's Response: We take pride in our home and maintaining it and are sorry that these guests felt our home did not meet their expectations. Our home meets all safety codes. We pay the cleaning for our guests and as I explained to these guests, if they do not check-out on time or follow the check-out procedures, we have to deduct from the security deposit to compensate our cleaner for her extra time and work. Check -out time is 10am and these guests did not leave until almost noon. Our check-out process asks guests to remove the sheets from the beds and all garbage from our home in the bags we provide. The sheets were not removed and garbage remained in our house and on the deck. We withheld part of the security deposit to compensate our cleaner for the time she had to wait and for the extra work she had to do.
