About the Owner

I live in the Shenandoah Valley. I'm originally from the Washington DC metro area. I've lived in Virginia most of my life. My ancestors were among the first settlers in Virginia in the 1600's.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time, the lake is beautiful! This was our first vacation to the area and one of our best vacations ever. We zip-lined, swam in Lake Laura, visited the farmers market, Skyline Drive, paddle boats, the kids did 3 in 1 at Bryce Resort Euro bungee, rock wall, etc... We saw lots of deer, a bear and turtles.

Great New Years Getaway

  • 5 of 5
We had the good fortune of staying at the Tower house over the New Year’s holiday the last 2 years in a row and it was fantastic. The house is fully equipped with all the necessities for a wonderful getaway. We were lucky enough to ski right from the end of the street down the ski slopes. It was the perfect location. The view is unbelievable and absolutely stunning from the top of the “tower.” The large decks that surround the back of the house were perfect for watching the sunset before dinner. The kids loved sleeping in the tower loft and waking up to the Shenandoah valley view before breakfast. We swam in the local heated pool near the lodge. It is the perfect rustic retreat for a large family or multiple families as it has two kitchens and fireplaces. Very cozy!

Marvelous Weekend at Bryce

  • 5 of 5
We had a marvelous weekend at Bryce Resort. The weather was perfect, the scenery gorgeous, and the Tower House was perfect for our group. We appreciated the two floors of bedrooms, sitting areas and kitchens - especially being able to find everything we needed in the kitchens. We used the grill as well. Thank you for being so helpful in making sure that the rental was easy and well prepared for our visit. We shall return one day.

Beautiful mountain scenery

  • 5 of 5
We have been renting the Tower House, along with some of our old college friends, for the last 5 years and love it. It is roomy enough to hold four to five couples. There is also a kitchen and living room on both floors which comes in handy if one group wants to listen to music and play cards and the other wants to watch a movie in quiet. In the mornings we love to have our coffee on the back deck and watch the sun slowly illuminate the beautiful mountain scenery. As we usually rent the house in the winter months, we really enjoy the large stone fireplaces as well. There are also a lot of activities in Bryce Resort and the Shenandoah Valley to keep us busy while we're there. In the winter we like to ski and during the Summer and Fall, we really enjoy the zip line, which goes down the mountain. We also like to visit the many wineries off of I-81 and at least one of the caverns. In short, we really recommend the Tower House for a couples retreat or for a family gathering. Sincerely, the Couvillons

Authentic Cabin

This is a very authentic cabin. We loved the family rooms and huge fireplaces & that it was so close to the slopes! We hope to come back again next year. Thanks for sharing your home :)

From the Owner

Some of my earliest childhood memories are of our family vacations to the Shenandoah Valley. I began coming to the Valley as an adult to enjoy the great outdoors (hiking, Shenandoah National Park, etc). I'm drawn to the Shenandoah Valley because of its natural beauty and slower pace. The Tower House is a real cabin. Its a very special property because of its unique architectural design and the million dollar mountain views. There is nothing like it.

The tower. How often do you get to stay in a place with a tower? Usually the kids fight over who gets to sleep in the tower.
