About John Favazzo
Friends John, Matt, and Mark traveled the world together before realizing the beautiful Shenandoah Valley was in their back yard. The thought of enjoying a cup of coffee or reading a book on Deer Haven's porches overlooking the valley was too inviting to resist. They decided to purchase Deer Haven together as a convenient weekend getaway from the grind of the city. Now they are opening their home to visitors to share the delightful views and tranquility of Deer Haven.
John Favazzo purchased this House in 2011
Why John Favazzo chose Edinburg
The owners chose the Edinburgh area primarily because of its charm, natural beauty and easy access to Washington, DC (just 100 miles). Only 20 miles from Bryce and 30 miles from Massanutten, Luray, and Front Royal, Deer Haven is truly centrally located in the valley just a few miles off of interstate 81.
What makes this House unique
Outside we have large decks with beautiful views, grill, fire-pit, hot tub, and rocking chairs. Local hiking is endless. Public river access is an easy 10-minutes away. Great swimming, tubing, canoeing, and kayaking options within 20-30 minutes of the home on the South Fork of the river. Inside the comfortable, spacious, chalet style home is a fully-stocked, eat-in kitchen, fireplace, and all of the amenities of home. Linen set up (sheets/towels) included in the nightly fee.
100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
The house was better than advertised - perfect for our group of 5 with plenty of space for all. Incredible sunsets on the porch each night and a perfect blend of convenience and seclusion. Can’t wait to come back!
The house was comfortable and was equipped with most everything we needed. The fire pit was a hit with my son. The owner was quick to respond to questions prior to the visit. We'd definitely return.
Amazing view and great home
This was our second time visiting this amazing vacation rental, again it hit all the good marks for us. It has a remarkable view of the mountains and valley and every comfort of home. We only had to bring clothes and food and we were totally set for a wonderful vacation. We made friends with the neighbor down the road who allowed us to see his farm, which our kids really enjoyed. The Woodstock area has a lot of restaurants locally owned which were amazing! We will be coming back for a third visiting!
Paradise in the Woods
I could not recommend this home more highly. Clean, comfortable, well stocked, well thought out details, wonderful location, incredible view.
We are already planning a return trip
The property is nicely secluded while still being convenient to towns should you need to venture out for more groceries. The view is really nice and great to take in with morning coffee. All amenities were as described and totally enjoyable. This is the fourth place that our group has rented together, and the first that we've said we could see coming back to each year. John and co are great hosts and communicative and have a wonderful property.
Perfect weekend getaway
Was looking for somewhere off the beaten path and up in the hills away from civilization a bit for a little relaxation and downtime. This fit the bill perfectly.
Bryce and Massanutten golf/ski resorts only 20 and 30 miles away, four quality wineries within 10-20 minute drives, Skyline Drive and Shenandoah National Park over the ridge only 30 minutes away, Shenandoah Caverns nearby, Luray Caverns 30 minutes away, Shenandoah River water access just a few minutes down the road, Civil War battlefields/memorials all around.
The village of Edinburg has a number of quality establishments including a few good, non-chain restaurants, a nice coffee shop , antique stores, a great bakery, and even miniature golfing!
The town of Woodstock, 10 minutes north of Edinburg has all of the above plus a movie theatre, art galleries, sports/entertainment center, hospital, and larger chain stores such as Food Lion, Lowes, Wal-Mart, and a bunch of chain restaurants.
