Look up at the night sky to star gaze or watch the deer graze off the back deck, then take in the mountain views from either balcony. Feeling lucky yet? Check out the map I left you to see how close you are to every activity & restaurant offered in the resort. Or head out for some MTB in the park! Our home is now your home for the length of your stay so please treat it with the same care and love you treat your own home. You made the right choice with Stargrazer!
Stargrazer is centrally located in Massanutten resort, halfway up the mountain, equidistant to ski slopes, restaurants, waterpark, golf courses and everything within the resort. You are close enough to the entrance to offer a convenient drive to the Shenandoah Park, Harrisonburg, or any other area you would like to visit while in the area. We have an expansive deck off the back of our home that is fully furnished with two dining tables, small couch, chairs and coffee table so that you can relax & enjoy this very peaceful, quiet setting. The sounds of birds singing and the sight of deer cruising through our back yard make our home a very special place to visit! We have a pair of small binoculars in the kitchen if you enjoy bird watching. The bedrooms are well appointed and most everything in the home is new, from high end linens to stylish furniture. Comfort is key, wether you will be staying in our home for a weekend getaway or an annual vacation with family and friends. There are 2 King, 2 Queen and one full bed with 3 full bathrooms. Our propane gas grill is brand new as of June 27, 2018 and comes equipped with 1-2 full canisters of gas depending on the length of your stay. Our kitchen is fully stocked with tools and dishes to prepare and enjoy your meals (if there is something special that you need that is not in the home let me know and I will try to accommodate any request), did I mention the smoothie maker/blender & crock pot! We also provide a few staples (like salt/pepper, flour, sugar, and a small container of ground coffee for the 12 cup coffee pot). Paper items such as Coffee filters, TP and paper towels are all included as well. The owners association has a large outdoor pool that is available for you to use during the summer months (we purchased an annual pass for our guests to use, not all vacation homes in the area offer this) Please be aware that they do also charge you a small per person fee ($5) to use the pool. We provide white bath, hand and wash towels for every guest, but please do not use at the pool . We have a few beach towels but please bring more if you will need them for the pool. We DO provide dishwashing liquid for a few loads, detergent and spray cleaner for countertops, as well as, plenty of dish cloths, dryer towels & mats for hand washing.
We look forward to hosting you and your family/friends in our beautiful mountain retreat!
Some of our house rules:
Our home is comfortable for all ages but we do not have it 'baby proofed' so feel free to move some decorative items you think may be tempting for little ones, we just ask that you put things back where they were before you leave. We do not have a crib, high chair or other things for age specific guests so please bring your portable crib, etc if needed. There are a lot of stairs in our home (from basement garage and to the second floor), so if this is a concern, our home may not be appropriate for your needs. While Massanutten is a wonderful place for children as there are many activities in the resort, such as a waterpark, bungee, mini golf, etc. we just want you to be aware of these things prior to booking if you have little ones. Garbage- we can no longer dispose of our guests garbage. Pick up is Monday morning and needs to be to the curb before 7:30am that day (It can NOT be taken out the night before or animals could get into it). It must be in garbage bags in the cans provided. There is also a community dumpster for you to take your garbage to (if you miss the pick up or are not here on a Monday) and the directions to this are in our home binder. If it snows while your here you may need to shovel snow off the driveway (we have a snow shovel at our home). Massanutten community has excellent snow removal for the streets but does not remove snow from driveways. Remember to bring towels for the pool or waterpark, our towels stay in our home. Do not wash any of our bed linens or towels while your here. We have a non white towel under every sink and in every linen closet in the house, these are for cleaning up spills on the floor, do NOT use our white bath towels, wash cloths, or hand towels for this. No shoes in the house, we have a shoe tray by the front door and a coat/shoe closet next to the front door for your shoes. Please no food or drinks (other than water) in the have had sheets ruined by red wine more than once. If a member of your group wears diapers, bring a changing mat and do not change diapers on our beds or furniture and do not use our wash cloths as baby wipes . We hope that you will treat our home as you would your own, but this has not always happened, so I have tried to include a few rules here (based on issues that have arisen in the short time we have been renting our home) that will help to keep our home and everything in it, as nice as possible for all our future guests.
