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.

Most people go to B&B's for ambiance, comfort and charm. Nice though the house was, Pat and Charlie our hosts, made it unforgettable!

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.

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.
