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!

Lovely and Oh So Large

  • 4 of 5

The log house is big and beautiful and for our family with kids and grand kids, it was perfect!! There was plenty of space for all. It was almost a part of the adventure . . . Exploration of the house. The kids could play hide and seek for hours. And a few of the adults played in the exercise gym.

Lake Laura is not far and was part of our daily routine for a hike and swim.

Thank you for opening your home. It gave our family (all 12 of us) plenty of space and lots of memories.

Wonderful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful home in a great location! My only regret is that we didn't stay long enough to do everything there is to do while you are there. Would definitely return.

It is a beautiful, roomy home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently stayed at the Log House at Bryce Resort. We had a fantastic time!

The home is designed to host a large group which is great. The kitchen is furnished wonderfully for cooking for a large group also.

We are very interested in staying at this house again next year!

The only concern was the tv on the main floor does not have clear reception when on the

satellite feature. The reception was clear when we watched DVDs Wondered if

due to internet hookup?? Thanks!!

Over Delivered!! 👍🏼👍🏼 ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

  • 5 of 5

We all had such a great experience, the house is immaculate, and the views are great ! We did make quite a few meals as there were 12 of us, and the kitchen had many of the utensils that we needed . All the batrooms were very clean and well stocked with linens.

The patio decks outback had plenty of chairs for all of us to sit, and the grill was awesome too. The pub the area with the pool table was a big hit with everyone, we spent most of our time down there. It was also fun to walk the mile or so to Lake Laura, we spent one afternoon tanning and enjoying the water. Some of my guests decided that they will book the home in the future for their next big occasion!

From the beginning the owners were prompt and accessible. I would strongly recommend this home to anyone, and will stay again in the future.

A beautiful house and location!

  • 5 of 5

We had our department retreat at this house. There was more than enough space to accommodate all of our needs. We had a great time cooking and eating, having discussions, playing pool, kayaking on the lake, going on hikes, and sleeping! The host was very responsive the whole time we were preparing for our trip. Thanks for having us!
