This charming and spacious home on our 20 acre wooded homestead has WONDERFUL VIEWS from every window. Hidden from town, yet only a mile stroll to shopping and the heart of Old Town Warrenton. Great home-away-from-home for church, special activity (scrapbookers, quilters), corporate events, wine tasters, special interest groups (homesteaders, book clubs), family reunions, bridal parties and out of town wedding guests. Delightful amenities include a large private fenced-in pool, 1200 sq. ft. spacious media/meeting/play room with games galore, ping-pong, air hockey, foos ball & pool. Outdoor fun includes a fully stocked pond for fishing (poles available), firepit, volleyball, basketball, regulation horseshoe pits, hiking, skeet shooting (additional fee of $45.00 for each guest) and so much more!
SMALL GATHERINGS (50 MAX.) Birthday/anniversary parties, weddings, retreats, business meetings with seating for 50 guests ( tables and chairs provided ) by our newly designed and built "Event Overlook." It is located in the woods but next to the front porch of the Farmhouse and has a beautiful panoramic view of the whole farm; such a gorgeous place for a small, country wedding!
We can also suggest many other added bonuses such as babysitting, horse boarding, and catering.
Bring your horses. They can graze in the pastures or overnight in the barn. Next day, enjoy a great ride through the woods along the river or in the riding ring.
Ask us about our ELEGANT COUNTRY COTTAGE on Hidden Hollow Farm that accomodates an additional 12 guests. Take a look at VRBO.com/565710. When both houses are rented by the same group, we can accommodate up to 38 guests comfortably. The game room and pool at the Farmhouse may be used by guests when the same group rents both homes.
Our goal is to insure that your stay on our farm is everything you expected it to be, and we would like to help you create great memories of your visit through family photos. We have owned a wedding/portrait photography studio for 35 years, currently located on Main St. in Old Town, Warrenton. If you would like us to a complimentary portrait sitting for your family, church or corporate group during your visit, you can visit our web site at www.sonshinepictures.com and let us know if you’d like to find an agreed upon time for your groups photo shoot here on the Farm. We will also send you an email just prior to your arrival as a reminder. You might enjoy getting creative and color coordinate your clothes together! Like blue jeans or kackies & white shirts or red plaids! We then place all of the photos on a gallery site for you to view when you arrive home from your visit.
Caretaker on the property for your convenience.
Both originally from Jersey, we headed south to Northern Virginia, where Wally worked as an air traffic controller and together we ministered as youth pastors as we raised our family. After a fire destroyed our home in Alexandria, we moved West to Warrenton in 1989, and used our skills to design our custom built home on this 20 acre farm. What a great place to raise our children. Today, we are raising grandchildren, chickens, and organic vegetables and our homesteading classes (food/water/fuel storage, gardening, dehydrating food, canning, grinding wheat/baking bread, cheese making, raising chickens, sooo much more!) begin in the Spring and continue until Fall. (Invite a group of your friends together and rent the Farmhouse for the weekend, and I'll be glad to teach the day-long class for you) We so enjoy extending our hospitality to folks who visit the area and we know you will be refreshed and restored when you come for a restful stay. A common expression around here is 'it's not Heaven, but it's a good place to wait.' Please let us know how we can serve you better.
Wally and Pat Smith
Wally & Pat Smith purchased this farmhouse in 1989
We looked at nothing less then 100 country properties over a year. Tired and overwhelmed, this was our last farm to consider. Just coming down the hollow, without even seeing the original house, we shouted 'this is it!' Pastures, rolling hills, forest, pond, creek, and barn; every window displayed this glorious creation. We were finally home.
Delightful amenities include: large private pool with towels provided, giganic family play room with HDTV, WIFI, pool, gaming table, ping pong, air hockey, foos ball, board games, toys, etc., fully stocked pond (fishing poles provided), hiking along Cedar Run River, fire circle, volleyball, basketball, catering, babysitting, horse boarding available. We are a pet friendly home.
We now offer skeet shooting for guests age 16 and older.
If you are planning a retreat, reunion or corporate gathering with more than 24 guests, please remember that we have a elegant country COTTAGE located on the farm that can sleep an additional 12 guests...in classic country style! See VRBO.com/565710 for the description of the COTTAGE.
Our program had an outstanding retreat for our volunteer directors this past weekend. The house was set up beautifully from the moment of arrival, from the perfectly-made beds to the beautifully folded toilet paper. Wally and Pat were incredible hosts, supporting our every request leading up to the weekend and being exceptionally responsive and welcoming. The house is ideally located - with acres of space and privacy, yet less than 5 minutes from ample food and catering options. The house stayed warm and toasty even in the chilly weather, (with the exception of the sun room which did not seem to be heated). Dishes and mason jars were beautiful, kitchen was well-supplied, and the entire farmhouse felt like home from the moment we arrived.
We rented this property for the bridesmaids (7 brides for 7 groomsmen) while my groomsmen and I stayed at a nearby property located at a walking distance from the subject, which the proprietor's of the subject property were kind enough to arrange for us to rent, allowing us to "play out" an important Ethiopian tradition of walking to the bride"s home to pick up the girl with a lot of fanfare. We also had our wedding rehearsal at the front lawn of the property, which was picture perfect with the setting sun with our friends and families gathered on that slopping hill in front of the farm house. In the evening the kids were "in heaven" in the entertainment room, with table tennis, games, a large play area, while the adults were split up in the many rooms in the house (the elderly in a room with their own music; the young by the pool with their friends). Unlike the typical mansions of NOVA, which is where we are from, the house is also very charming and surprisingly roomy with lots of bathrooms and beds. Overall, this property was a critical part of our wedding and made our wedding what it was! We plan on returning with our friends and this time, to explore the trails, the vineyards in the area and the quite, country life. The Owners are also wonderful people to work with as they have many years experience working with wedding partys. Some of the vendor recommendations they made was spot on! We highly recommend this property!
Ice maker did not work! Several light bulbs were burned out including underground pool light. Some needed repairs such as paint touch up, carpet cleaning and leather sofa with much wear. Some of the grassy areas were too tall to do a lot of exploring, walking.
Awesome property, but again a bit pricey per night for location 45 mins to 1 hour from D.C.
Stayed here for a family reunion of 20+ people. We really enjoyed our stay here and everyone kept raving about the house. It had enough beds for everyone plus lots of space to hang out (kitchen, family room, game room, poolside, etc). The owners were very responsive to my numerous questions prior to arrival. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a large home, in a beautiful location.
We were beyond pleased with this property. We rented it for a girls weekend and had so much fun with the games and outside fire pit. There was plenty of space and we loved all the little notes around the house! They had a full comprehensive guide of the area, our only wish is that we could've stayed longer
We can not say enough good things about this home. Everything was amazing! There are so many personal touches - the HUGE game room, large screen TV, pool, deck, grill/gazebo area. The kitchen and dining area, the storage for food/coolers in adjoining laundry room, the cozy living room/sitting room areas. The wildlife and beautiful views! The bedroom and bathrooms were so cozy and so well organized, so easy to have a large number of people!! Having a family reunion there - was Amazing!! Owners were wonderful to deal with and so accommodating in every way!
Hidden Hollow Farm is nestled between great sight-seeing of the Nations Capital and the adventures in hiking and backpacking on Skyline Drive. This farm has also been called 'Almost Heaven' due to the ideal home-away-from-home charming FARMHOUSE (24-26 GUESTS) & COTTAGE (12 GUESTS FOR A TOTAL OF 36-38 GUESTS) and the harmony of ponds, woods, rolling hills, and homestead atmosphere. Great views from every window! Here in horse/wine country, we have over 20 wineries to tour, local farm markets to shop at, and Old Town Warrenton to discover.
Check out our area website out here in horse/wine country....visitfauquier.com. It will be helpful in planning your visit.
We have now added skeet shooting to our activities for bachelor parties, corporate groups, family reunions, etc. here on the Farm for guests age 16 and up. The cost is 45.00/person for 25 rounds (12 gauge shotgun), ear protection and an event coordinator/instructor.
If you would like to have an intimate event on the Farm, we welcome groups of 50 (maximum). We have recently created a country party setting on the bluff of the pine forest that overlooks the pond and the entire Farm. There are picnic tables and additional seating for up to 50 guests. I'm sorry, but we can not accommodate tents or portable toilets on the property, however, this small event will allow guests to comfortably function and flow in the Farmhouse incase of inclement weather. Our fee for your special event is 500.00 for up to 5 hours.
