Overview

Woodstock House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + 3 Baths, Sleeps 8

Situated in the heart of the historic Shenandoah Valley, Deer Haven offers easy access to unparalleled views of the valley on twenty secluded acres backing up to the National Forest.

Deer Haven is only 100 miles to Washington, DC, thirty minutes to Shenandoah National Park, Bryce and Massanutten Ski resorts, and the spectacular Luray Caverns, and just minutes away from numerous Civil War battlefields, wineries, the Shenandoah River, and National Forest hiking trails.

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 living area contains a fire place, comfortable seating, and plenty of games, movies, and books to snuggle up with.

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 Shenandoah Valley

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.

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, piano for your pleasure, and all of the amenities of home.

Cleaning fee and linen set up included in rental fee.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear John,



Thank you for the opportunity to spend three wonderful days at Deer Haven last weekend, Oct 15-17. The property, the scenery and the weather were all a perfect combination for our first-time exploration of the Shenandoah Valley. The fall colors were spectacular and the view from Deer Haven was even more impressive than the VRBO description suggested. The 'scenic drive' on 675 to Luray was enjoyed multiple times.



The house was clean, well-kept, well-supplied and very user-friendly. Everything as advertised.



One comment on our selection of Deer Haven --- we wanted a 'pet free' property and found few such in the area. Please know that we (and probably many others) appreciated that aspect of Deer Haven too.



A great time at a great location!!!



Thank you

Bob & L

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

Had a beautiful stay at this cabin and would stay again. The location is fantastic. Unfortunately the power went out a few times while we were there (out of owner's control). Afterward, the hot tub no longer worked :( But John is aware of these issues, and was responsive. I'm sure they'll be fixed before the next trip.

Gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

This was an mazing stay and I will most likely do it again. The view that comes with the house is to die for and the house itself was beautiful on the inside. Host was very easy to talk to and easy to get in contact with. Overall great stay.

Relaxing retreat away from it all

  • 5 of 5

Away from it all, this beautiful home provides a beautiful place to relax and reconnect. After full days of hiking, we looked forward to returning to the house to unwind in the hot tub, play the large selection of family games, and enjoy the gorgeous views. Supermarket, gas station, bank, and movie theater are not far away, yet the home feels wonderfully separate and peaceful.

This home was ideal for our weekend gathering. It's wonderfully private with just the right level of amenities. The owner maintained excellent communication throughout the process. I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
