The SunGrazer is a spacious (2005) 3,200 sq ft, 7 bedroom, 4 bath mountain home that sleeps 18.
Located in the Massanutten Four Seasons Resort in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley, the house features 2 forty foot decks with ski slope, stream, and golf course views, 9 ft and cathedral ceilings, 2 family rooms with a 55'HDTV, 2 fireplaces, a garage, two bikes, fusball table and game table. We are not connected to the Massanutten Resort so get no special breaks on Resort amenities. Everything open to the public is available to you includig the Skiing, winter and summer tubing on the ski slopes, GoKart Course, mini-golf, either of the two 18-hole golf courses, fishing, horseback riding, etc. In summer you also have access to the Property Owner's pool at the top of the mountain near our home.
Everything is provided at our home, all you need to bring are your personal items and food. If you plan to use the Water Park, bring some extra towels (we don't want ours taken from the house and the Water Park does not provide towels). Smoking is allowed on decks. You can walk to the golf course or fishing, and the ski slopes are 5 minutes away. The Appalachian Trail runs right by the home and the famous Skyline Drive has an entrance only 20 minutes by car. We cater to families (preferred) and adult-led groups that will respect our home, the privacy of our neighbors, our house rules and the rules of the Massanutten Property Owners Association.
Upstairs - 1 master Queen suite with foldout double sofa, 2 double bunk rooms (sleep 8), kitchen (seats 6), dining room (seats 10), garage, great room with fireplace, 2 bathrooms, deck access. Downstairs- family room with 55' HDTV, master King suite, 1 triple bunk room, one bedroom with twin beds and another with a twin-over-double bunk, great room with fireplace, deck access. All bunks were handmade for us. They were built to accomodate adults. The Driveway is paved with ample parking for 3-5 cars. Additional cars can be parked on the shoulder of the road across from our home. For the disabled or elderly, there is only one step from our driveway into our home.
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.
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.
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.
The Sungrazer is a wonderful property for a relaxing mountain getaway. The views from the deck are fabulous. The house met all of our group's needs and was comfortable and homey. The owner Carol keeps everything simple so there is no hassle with the details. We would definitely choose this spot again for our next getaway.
I rented the Sungrazer for 10 close friends who were traveling into town for my wedding weekend. They were so happy with the house, as it was far more comfortable and spacious than a handful of hotel rooms (and far less expensive, too!) Carol was very responsive in answering all of our questions, and check-in and check-out was very easy. The bridal party stayed nearby, so I was able to visit the house a couple times for a common meal which was easy to prepare and enjoy given the well equipped kitchen and large table. We also had a blast running a round-robin foosball tourney:-) The views from the balcony were amazing both day and night, and there is plenty to do on the mountain. Several of my friends took advantage of the mini-golf course and pool, while others enjoyed the zip line canopy tour. I plan to rent the Sungrazer again in the future, and I absolutely recommend it for your trip to Shenandoah Valley!!!
We are eight adult men who visited the Harrisonburg area on a golf outing. We really enjoyed staying at the sungrazer. It was much more enjoyable than 4 hotel rooms and less expensive. Carol was very easy to deal with so renting the house and checking in was very easy. The house met all of our needs and was very comfortable, clean, and well equipped. We plan to lease the Sungrazer the next time we return to that area.
My family just returned from our fifth year of vacation at Sungazer! Every year we love it more, if that is possible. The house is located in a perfect area for seeing the mountains, ski slopes and golf course. The peace and quiet when sitting on the upper or lower deck is priceless. The house is very well equipped with linens and cooking utensils, dishes, and almost anything you will need to make your stay more enjoyable and relaxed. The time seems to go so quickly but that is how all good things are. There is so much to do right at the resort but you would never know it as you experience total quiet at Sungazer. You can take a walk and see many deer roaming through the woods. If you want to explore historical sites, there are many within easy driving distance - there is the New Market Battlefield along Rt. 81, you can visit Monticello (the home of Thomas Jefferson) in Charlottesville, also Presidents Madison and Monroe's houses close by in that same area. The home of Woodrow Wilson is located in Staunton as well. So much to see and do - you will find a week just is not enough time. However, if you choose to just relax and enjoy the mountains, you won't find a better place to do it than this beautiful home. The house is very spacious and comfortable for a big group, you never feel crowded.
When our week is over, we can never wait until next year to come back to this lovely home and that is the way it should be. So, come to Sungazer and enjoy the many, many facets of this wonderful vacation home - it is a house for all four seasons and it would be hard to decide which is your favorite.

Each time we visit, this home provides just the relaxation and amenities that are needed for our group. Our favorite part is the gorgeous view from the deck. The home is clean and well maintained. The owner, Carol, is always easy to communicate with and very kind. I highly recommend this home for your next vacation or family get together.
