The home has a fully-stocked, eat-in kitchen, three baths, and large decks with a grill, fire-pit, and hot tub for relaxing. Two bedrooms are on the second floor - the master bedroom boasts a wall of windows overlooking the Shenandoah Valley and River. The private third bedroom suite is on the ground floor with its own bathroom, sitting room, wet bar, and great views.

The towns of Edinburg and Woodstock offer great shopping, dining, antiques, coffee shops and art galleries.
If you are looking for a convenient getaway that offers privacy, endless views and tranquility, Deer Haven is the place for you.
**NOTE FOR WINTER GUESTS:
We do occasionally get snow in the area. The road up to the cabin is steep. We will do our best to have the road plowed in the event it does snow however, if the road has packed snow or ice, it will be very difficult to manage without four-wheel or all-wheel drive.
We will work with guests in the event of inclement weather to see that they can reach and enjoy the cabin. That said, guests should monitor the weather and plan on taking a four wheel or all wheel drive vehicle during the winter months in the event there is snow or ice. If the road is impassible by four-wheel vehicle, we will honor a partial or full refund depending on the circumstances.

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. Cleaning fee and linen set up included in nightly rate.

Awesome Relaxing Weekend
Had a great weekend stay. The views were phenomenal and we had everything we needed to make it feel like home. The house is very secluded tucked into a the woods on top of a ridge, but the directions the hosts provide cover everything in detail. Hiking, fishing and shopping were all still very easy to get to. I expect to to be back in the future!
Awesome private mountain home, perfect for relaxing with the family.
The property is amazing. Fast responses from owners when trying to reserve. Very clean. Everything you need is there. The house is well set up and very comfortable. Hot tub is right under the stars. Fire pit was great. Very private, only saw local farmer neighbor pass by once or twice a day on his tractor, other than not a soul. Amazing views and one of the best sun sets I ever saw. Loved the decks with all the great rocking chairs. Didn't leave the place for 3 days, had everything needed for a relaxing getaway. Not sure what else to say except that its a 5 star home and I hope to come back again soon, maybe in the fall if its not all booked up.
Beautiful, comfortable, lots of kitchen tools, lovely view, best hot tub we have ever visited!
