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.

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.
Pictures of the view from this property don't do it justice - it was simply beautiful!
A beautiful retreat in the Virginia mountains within reach of charming near-by towns
Perfect Family Gathering Place
We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 night stay at Deer Haven. The home is comfortable, clean and stocked with everything we needed. We left this morning and I miss it already.
My family loved playing the games provided, relaxing in the hot tub, and exploring the beautiful outdoors. The owners clearly take pride in this home and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for the fantastic accommodations!
very comfortable beds, two of three showers with good water pressure, trouble getting the hot tub to warm up, beautiful sunset views, perfect decks, lots of space for 6 people to enjoy the multitude of games provided, movies, fire pit, etc.
Lots of wineries close by! Loved making s’mores on the fire pit, having a cookout on the grill, and relaxing in the hot tub! The driveway to the cabin is no joke, definitely recommend a 4 wheel drive vehicle.
Very secluded and relaxing.
The property was very comfortable.
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.
