About Anne Sisson

We are life long residents of Elkton, Virginia and although we have traveled to many countries, have never found anyplace like the Shenandoah Valley.

Anne Sisson purchased this house in 1973

Why Anne Sisson chose Elkton

The land that this home is built on was part of a parcel that had been in the Monger family for several generations. In 1973 we bought this property from family members and moved to one of the two farm houses on the property. One of which had been our home place. Monger Place was built in 1982 and remodeled in 1993 to include the second story. There is a peaceful easy feeling whether looking from the front porch to the Massanutten Mountain range or from the back deck looking east to the Blue Ridge Mountains.

What makes this house unique

The 360 degree view of the mountains are what we enjoy most. This house is very family friendly but cozy enough for two. Perfect place to enjoy all four seasons! Springtime in the Valley is beautiful! Summer is the perfect time for daytrips to historic sights. The Fall foliage will be at its peak mid-October and the Ski season will be following closely behind. It's all here at Monger Place!

Guestbook comments from the owner

What an great place to stay. Located in the outskirts away from the hustle and bustle, this home is beautiful inside and out. It is warm and welcoming.. Very spacious rooms throughout the house. Very clean and well kept. Linens are provided. There are a lot of personal touches which made us feel at home. This home will hold a large group. The surrounding views are beautiful. My only complaint is we were not able to stay longer, we were in town for JMU's graduation and only stayed one night and then had to get back home. We will return!!!

2nd time as good as the 1st time

  • 5 of 5

This is the 2nd time we have rented this house. Once again, our stay was great. The house was clean and well furnished with everything as described in the listing. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: We love our visitors! Some arrive on motorcycles and take in the beauty of the Shenandoah Valley unrestrained; some are serious bicyclists in training for the race of a lifetime; some come to gather with family and friends and create new memories; and some come to enjoy the peace and tranquility Shenandoah Valley living is famous for. We love our visitors and welcome them back again and again!

Comfy and family friendly! 10 min drive from Ski resort

  • 4 of 5

5 rooms with all the basic and entertainment supplies where two families had great time. 4 min drive from grocery store and 10 min from Massanutten ski resort - made our trip so fun and easy. Would stay again next time visiting this area.

As good as it gets

  • 5 of 5

The part of the stay that far exceeded my expectations was the hospitality of the home owner. Two of my acquaintances left possessions in the house, and the owner offered to mail them back. I highly recommend the property!

We loved this place

  • 5 of 5

We visited this place with three families this winter. Clean, well maintained. Kitchen has almost all of the kitchen utensils you need. Pretty warm inside even during the sub zero temperatures.

Very close to Massanutten resort, Luray caverns and eateries outside.
