Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Front Royal - Rolling River Farm

3 BR, 2 1/2 BA, sleeps 6

Rolling River Farm. (com) Private 100 Acre Riverfront Paradise surrounded by water- on a full bend in the legendary Shenandoah River.

New from 2012 Summer Season and onward --600 SQ/FT Rec/Workout room with large screen Plasma TV, Wii Game system, Foosball, Air-hockey and Ping Pong tables.

-Just one hour from Dulles Airport and the Washington Capitol Beltway (believe it or not there are only four traffic lights between the farm and the Capitol Hill).

Starbucks, restaurants and shopping only ten minutes away.

100 holes of Golf are within a four mile radius. Historic Downtown Front Royal with its shops,restaurants and antiques is fifteen minutes from the farm.

Deep water for swimming, tubing, water-skiing, wake-boarding with a private boat ramp (suitable for small boats and jet-skis) and a private dock. All right from your own waterfront. Bring your own boat and jet skis or arrange with the owner (additional cost can be quoted). Kayaks and canoe provided

After a day on/in the river enjoy showering off in the exquisite outdoor shower and sunning yourself dry on the built in bench or experience the fun of showering and then shaving at the outdoor sink with the birds singing above you in the morning light (naturally this feature is closed in the colder months).

Panoramic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Walking/riding trails right on the property. Hunting (in season) and fishing available right on the farm (with permission of owner). Horses are welcome, with permission, and there is a paddock and grazing as needed.

The traditional Virginia stucco farmhouse has been thoughtfully renewed, restored and redecorated to preserve and enhance its charms. To quote a recent visitor from Maryland: 'I can't tell you what a blast we had. We felt like we were in a movie. The house could not have been more perfect, it was warm and cozy and allowed us to spend quality family time together. My family loves history and this farm house and property is loaded with just that. We loved the way you have restored it allowing the history to show through yet updating it at the same time.'

All Season enjoyment--The wrap-around porch is the perfect place to watch sunsets or enjoy porch drinks. The brick terrace with its gas fire-pit is great for stargazing and conversation on cool evenings. Winter nights can be enjoyed by the fire sipping hot cocoa or reading a good book. Surrounded by over one hundred acres of rolling fields and woods with a river on three sides you can soak up the quiet and seclusion.

This is a private vacation retreat, very much family oriented, of a Christian family that contains religious art and images that reflect their faith. They invite you to come and explore or just get away from it all.

Front Royal has major several major national parks and attractions;Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River with local outfitters, Skyline Caverns, Shenandoah National Park, Appalachian Trail...

Guestbook comments from the manager

Thank you for opening your home for others to experience and enjoy. We marveled at the care and thoughtfulness of the renovations. The house was comfortably modern yet retained the charm of a bygone era. The setting is impeccable. The rolling hills, the gorgeous sunsets, the river all around, the old barns, the swaying field grass in the breeze, and the sound of the Church bells made for an unforgettable getaway. We did not leave the property the entire weekend...we didn't have to. Everything we needed was right here. Our dogs are pleasantly exhausted...thank you! We will return until mabye one day when we find a Rolling River Farm of our own...if we are not spoiled by the shear beauty of this farm.

Thanks so much it was a true getaway and, at the same time, a true coming home.

Wonderful property!

  • 4 of 5

Rolling River Farm is a wonderful place for anyone wanting privacy and a wonderful place to just sit back and relax. Frank and Sean were VERY helpful with any questions and issues we had, and we couldn't have asked for better owners to work with. We did some canoeing and kayaking during out stay, and it was extremely helpful to have a boat launch right on the property. The owners also had a canoe and four kayaks for our use. This kept us from having to bring our own boats, and made the trip much more convenient. Having 100 acres to wander around in was a tremendous plus. Thank you Frank and Sean for a wonderful visit!

We couldn't get people to leave

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 14 from Wash. DC so we rented both this and the Overlook House (about a 15 min. walk across mowed fields, or a 5 min. drive) for a weekend escape. This place is beautiful, impeccably clean and extremely comfortable, with quality furnishings and a well equipped kitchen. I had rented the Overlook house twice before, and felt a little guilty that we would be depriving our overflow friends "down here" of the fantastic views, but it was all we could do to get them to tear themselves away!

The river bank "beach" area is lovely - I can see spending the whole day down there in summer. It is only about a 20 min. drive to the entrance of Skyline Drive & Shenandoah National park, but you can also easily satisfy your hiking & nature & mountain view desires just by walking around the property.

The game room is certainly an attraction for kids and teens, but our group - 50ish - slapped out a few good games of ping pong and air hockey. And the dogs went absolutely nuts chasing and racing around!

Owner's Response: Hi Victoria, Lovely to have you and your expanded gang back at the Farm and River Overlook. Thanks too for taking the time and relating your own experience- which can only help others wondering if it is the right place for their own reunion! Keep an eye out on our Rolling River Farm Facebook page for the brand new stone paver terrace at the River Overlook, which you guys will be able to enjoy on your next trip...just looking for furnishings now so if you have suggestions :-)

Amazing Weekend - Property Even Better Than the Listing

  • 5 of 5

I held my company retreat here and we had a wonderful time. The property is expansive and gorgeous. Though the description does a great job, the property is even more amazing than the description with a huge, secluded stretch of riverside picnic / party area with fire pit and second grill, etc. The owners are very responsive and answered the few small questions that we had very quickly. I hope I have the opportunity to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for bringing your company retreat to Rolling River Farm. While you are not the first it is nice to get a review from someone who has had that experience! Best of luck in 2015 and hope to see you all again!

I Hear the Echos of Simpler Times

  • 5 of 5

This historic farmhouse is one-of-a-kind. It is beautifully restored with modern and artistic features, but lets you feel the friendly continuity of the farming family owners going back to the Civil War. The unforgettable sunsets, rolling hills and private river clearing will deepen friendships and revitalize your soul.

Relaxing and Impressive

  • 5 of 5

Our family has looked on-line all over the mountains of Virginia for a place like this. None have been as nice as this place. The combination of pretty farm land, Skyline Drive only minutes away and the river on three sides makes this our favorite by far. You can get more luxury and amenities at a re$ort but none we've found gives you the farm, the mountains and river in one package, not to mention, none will give you a 100 acres all to yourself.

Our family and friends enjoyed a wonderful week here in June of 2014 (2nd visit here). It is honestly better in person than any picture can convey. The house is well appointed and comfortable. Outside is even better. Sitting on the porch and walking the fields is the only way one can get a true sense of all the acreage that one has sole use of at this property. Besides the Farm house itself, the barn with the game room was much appreciated by both the kids and the parents - bring an extra Wii controller and batteries if there is a bad weather day. If the weather is good we recommend a day down at the river playing and fishing on the river's edge, using the canoe that is provided and grilling on the grill that is riverside, too. (Note, we had no idea there was a heat wave down in DC while we were staying here, it is truly cooler here.) Also, I recommend bringing a boat or renting their pontoon boat - the owner's son who goes by the name Sean, though we are all convinced he is actually the actor Orlando Bloom, will kindly help you with the boat rental. As a group we all caught all the fish we wanted - I for one have rarely seen such large sunfish. Another favorite at the farm house was the gas fire pit that the adults enjoyed talking around each evening while the kids chased lighting bugs and played in the hammock. (If you don't have kids with you, please enjoy that hammock, I could not get time in it without a bevy of kids piling on me.) In short, this is a great place that is relaxing and impressive.

Owner's Response: That was really lovely to read...and Sean (and the rest of us) got a big kick out the Orlando Bloom comparison. It is just about the best compliment you could pay us to come back so thanks for coming again! Hopefully, the Farm will always live up to your memories.

Wonderful remote farmhouse and property.

  • 5 of 5

Our visit hit all the right notes, with fishing, exploring, reading, hiking and cooking all high on the list. Amazing property that is deftly kept up by the owners who have the "right touch". Only touch of civilization was the hum of the freeway which though not visible was noticeable. One of the wonders of the Shenandoah Valley!

Owner's Response: I would have a hard time disagreeing with you there...it really is "one of the wonders of the Shenandoah valley". So great for us to hear it from other folks because even we pinch ourselves when we get to stay!
