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.

Amazing place to unwind with AMAZING Mountain Views
The host and house delivered as expected! The views from the comforts of the home are worth staying for. We enjoyed the hike To and up the Woodstock tower and antiquing only to hurry back to the house so we didn’t miss the sunset. It can be enjoyed from not only every level of the house but the decks as well.
The drive up to the house is an adventurous 1 mile drive up the mountain. Once you arrive you have that amazing view and everything you need to relax in the Shenandoah mountains. John was a great host, was willing to work with us regarding check in and out times and answered our questions quickly. We WILL be coming back!!
Wonderful stay, amazing place!
We had an amazing time with friends! The house and location is amazing. We enjoyed the fire pit a lot and the fire place.
We will definitely come back for a longer stay! Thank you John!
Private getaway with amazing views from the bedrooms and porch/deck. Very clean and well maintained. Would definitely recommend and would stay there again without a doubt.
What a great experience. Can’t say enough positive things about Deer Haven. It’s location is perfect to get away from it all. Beautiful scenery, as is the home. Great location is you want to sight see local attractions (Luray, Meem’s covered bridge, the various wineries and breweries). Definitely would stay there again.
This is our second trip to Deer Haven. Just as great as the first. I emailed John to see if we could have an early arrival and he answered within a couple of hours. Great people to deal with. We highly recommend this beautiful cabin with the best ever views.
Fabulous place to escape the city life
Perfect place for a trip with family and friends. The house is well equipped and the view is stunning. If you have a choice pick a vehicle which can go on a bumpy gravel driveway. It’s the perfect escape from the hectic city life. Hikes and wineries are located close by. Highly recommended, we will come back!
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.
