The Hockman Manor House Bed and Breakfast

16388 Old Valley Pike , Edinburg, VA 22824 USA (Show map)


The Hockman Manor House is an historic home, built on the banks of the Shenandoah River, with views of the George Washington National Forest beyond. This lovely Italianate home was built in 1868 by Dr. Christian Hockman on the banks of the River near the "friendly little town" of Edinburg. The gardens and 2 acres of woods attract deer, foxes, rabbits, and many kinds of birds to the back yard. There are two decks for viewing the mountains and river and a front porch for enjoying the sunsets. All rooms have private bath, and comfortable queen-sized beds, except the Bird Cage, which has a double and a single. Luxurious linens, beautiful bedding, original artwork and lovely views enhance your stay in this historical home. Delicious, interesting breakfasts are prepared using locally butchered meats, eggs from free-range chickens, and locally grown produce, when available.

Lovely B&B

5 on April 09, 2015

We had a lovely Easter weekend stay in the Shenandoah suite which was quite roomy and comfortable and had a beautiful view of the mountains. Our host was very attentive to our needs. She also made the most wonderful breakfasts. Would definitely visit again if we go back that way.

A gem off I-81

Get off the highway and relax in this historical town. This is a wonderful place to stay. Pat was most welcoming and as others have said, what a great breakfast. Rooms were clean and really enjoyed the house. Only got to stay one night on our way south but would enjoy staying here again. Don't forget a meal at Sal's Italian Bistro in town with a wide variety of choices.

Great Breakfast and Location

Most activities were nearby the B&B. Our room with the view of the mountains and river exceeded our expectations. The breakfast is like two meals in one for us. Thank you for the warm welcome and stay, Pat.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hockman Manor House. The Shenandoah Suite was spacious and comfortable, with outstanding views of the nearby mountains.

The views from this home are spectacular. You are made to feel welcome and a part of the family as soon as you step in the front door. The breakfast was fabulous too! Would recommend this to anyone coming through Shenandoah County, Virginia.

A fantastic Night in Edinburg

Pat's kindness and hospitality made us feel right at home. She also provided us with wonderful suggestions for dining in the local area and loaned us her hiking trail guides so we could plan our daily hikes. The breakfast was also fantastic.
