Only Good Things to Say about Shadow Crest:

Shadow Crest was beautiful, private and extremely spacious - good spots for everyone to hang out; also some good spots to be alone. Nice back deck with comfy chairs/table for outdoor dining, plus screened-in porch where the grand kids ate breakfast, watching the deer grazing in the trees behind us. Generous, well-equipped kitchen and laundry. Cul-de-sac was private and safe for kids (and grown-ups) to play outdoors; plus great location to walk to farmers market and club house. Home was clean, organized, and well-maintained. All beds were comfy. Our family has never had a more relaxing, comfortable time together. Will return soon. Five-plus stars!


Our family appreciated all the thought you put into making your renters' stay truly enjoyable. Much appreciated

It was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

We are five retired couples that travel together semi-annually. Shadow Crest was perfect for us. The house is beautifully appointed and fully supplied for living, cooking and enjoying adult beverages. We ten agreed that it was the best home we have rented over the last five years.

The area itself is delightful. The ladies enjoyed shopping in Charlottesville and Waynesboro. They took a flower arranging class at Pharsalia. The guys enjoyed spending a day at Lake Sherando and touring the numerous breweries and distilleries. There are numerous walking paths through the woods connecting the cul de sacs for runners and walkers

You will not be disappointed.

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 of 5

The house was gorgeous surrounded by beautiful mountains. Inside, we had everything you could possibly need to be comfortable, including a wet bar, gas grill, huge kitchen, and several tvs. Paul was also very responsive whenever we had questions or difficulty finding things. We had our family reunion here and we would definitely consider coming back.

Beautiful home in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

If I could give this house 10 stars I would. We are 5 couples that love traveling together. Paul's home was absolutely perfect in every way for us. There was so much room in this house, even for 10 people. Each bedroom was beautifully decorated. Beds were comfortable. Each couple having their own bathroom was a plus. The towels were so fluffy and plush. The kitchen was well stocked. There was even a wine cooler, what a nice touch. The location couldn't have been better for us. It was so easy to get to the breweries, wineries, and anywhere we wanted to go. We loved the Farmers Market that we could walk to. We are already talking about another trip back in the fall. We are now spoiled and wouldn't think of staying anywhere but Falcon Crest. Paul was very easy to work with. I highly recommended staying in his beautiful home when in the area.

Perfect location for visiting breweries and wineries

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely nicely furnished home. The beds are very comfortable and the towels provided are super soft. I was so pleased to find that linens provided meant the beds were made when we arrived! The kitchen is very well equipped. We all love to cook and were not disappointed with the tools provided. The refrigerator is a tad small for a really big group as is the outdoor grill, but those are minor problems. The pool the house has passes for is nice and not crowded. We did go to Lake Monocan which is lots of fun for kids with the sandy beach, trampoline and slide - only downside is that it is expensive. The house is great for a long weekend with friends - just don't leave on Monday as the trash site is closed and you have to take your garbage home with you. The owner is super easy to deal with - he responds to emails quickly and was very quick to handle a problem with the AC - even getting someone to come on a Sunday!

Know it says the house sleeps 18 and does physically have bed space for 18 but think that 14-16 is the maximum to be comfortable. The kitchen table sits 6 and the dining room 8-10 if you are a group that like to eat at the same time. We did a kids table and adults in the dining room and everyone was happy. (We were 8 adults and 6 kids) There were other chairs and a folding table in the garage for overflow but they would have to go in the foyer I think.
