About Donovan Goebert

The Log House is a family treasure dedicated to 5 stepbrothers, Christopher, Scolaighe, Donovan, Daniel, and Dominic by their parents Chris and Maria to experience for their lifetimes.

Lots were purchased in 2005 on the Lake side (opposite the golf course side) of the Resort and the original Log House was completed in 2007. It hosted hundreds of guests for vacations, reunions, retreats, holiday gatherings, anniversaries, a 100th birthday, two marriage proposals and many other beautiful moments for the following 5 years.

In 2012, it was converted into a full-time residence to escape the rat race of northern VA and provide a smaller and more personal school experience in the Shenandoah Valley for the boys, especially the youngest who continues to make autism feel like a special bonus more than a disability. Another wing was added to include a large master suite, an office, a 3 car garage, and a professional grade gym. A new sun room and breakfast room were added to the original Log House, as well as a sitting room "bridge" to connect the new wing. Outside, a detached log workshop was built and the driveway was upgraded to a U-shape and a beautiful stone stairway and wall from the road to the house was constructed.

In the winter of 2012, Scolaighe chose to marry his beautiful wife Masha at The Log House, nearly twice its original size, The winter wedding ceremony took place on the center stairway witnessed by nearly 100 guests from across the country and the world. It was a magical christening of The Log House with the types of moments it was always meant to inspire.

In 2015 when 2 of the youngest brothers finished high school and began college and the Army National Guard, The Log House 2.0 was converted to a vacation rental home for hundreds more guests to enjoy.

Thank you so much to the family, friends, and returning guests who continue to make The Log House a special, unique, and timeless setting for some of life's most memorable moments.

Donovan Goebert purchased this cabin in 2005

What makes this cabin unique

The Log House is the only genuine log cabin that is available to rent to large families on the resort and is even displayed on the Bryce Resort webpage within the lodging section! It's breathtaking, but comfortable. Spacious enough for large families, but cozy enough for intimate gatherings, including the brothers' annual family reunions since 2007 and the family's first wedding. Many guests have returned year after year for their own family traditions, and we are confident that The Log House 2.0 will be a huge success. We hope to see YOU at The Log House for your next vacation!

Beautiful home in a lovely mountain setting

  • 5 of 5

Visited the Log House for a long weekend to celebrate a birthday and couldn't have asked for more. The well-appointed kitchen easily accommodated our meals, the large dining and living space was perfect for entertaining a big crowd, and the pool table and hot tub kept us entertained. The linens and towels provided made packing so much easier. I highly recommend this property and hope to come back for a return visit!

The Perfect Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family was in the Shenandoah for our son's wedding. The house was perfect for our extended family to stay and relax. The views were spectacular and it was convenient to the wedding venue. Would definitely stay here again if the occasion arises.

We loved this house!

  • 5 of 5

This log house is amazing. Plenty of room for large groups and very clean. The kitchen could use a few more utensils, pizza pan, etc, but it was an awesome house and we enjoyed it very much!

Very enjoyable, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the chalet. The owner returned my e-mails immediately when I needed to e-mail him about anything. The only thing we could find that we would add would be a refrigerator downstairs near the bar. Maybe in the laundry room??? So, if that was the only thing, I think the chalet is pretty much perfect! We would love to make this a yearly destination. Thank you!

Great Vacation Home!

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of family from seniors to boys , ages 9 and 12. We all enjoyed the house and there was plenty of room for everyone. We especially liked the little cozy rooms, the sunroom and the bridge room. Didn't like the steep entrance to the driveway and one of the cars dragged coming and going. Donovan was very helpful and always responded very quickly to questions. I would recommend this house to anyone but drive an SUV. The boys especially liked the fishing at the nearby lake. The kitchen was not as well stocked with casserole dishes, only one 9x13, and the kitchen cupboards were not clean inside. There were plenty of towels, the furniture was all very nice, excellent beds, but we were surprised that we had to make our own beds when we got there. It's an excellent house but the cleaning crew should do much better.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry that your car had difficulties with the steep driveway; there's not much I can do to change the topography of the land but there is a parking area at the top with nice steps leading down to the front door of the house for such situations. There are a couple of reasons we leave linens folded up at the foot of the beds for clients. First, we want you to know that you are getting clean linens. The second reason is so that we know when linens are dirty. If we make all of the beds prior to client arrival, we must wash all the linens regardless of whether the bed has been slept in or not. It's just a small way for us to do our part for the environment. Our apologies for any issues with the kitchen. We try to anticipate everything the kitchen needs and always add items per client suggestions. So, we will add some casserole dishes based on your feedback. During the summer months we have back to back renters and there isn't always sufficient time to get everything right. We've actually considered having earlier check-out times and later check-in times to solve this issue but are hesitant to take that time away from our clients. We will do better. We're happy your stay was enjoyable and hope to see you again in the future.
