SERENE WOODED GETAWAY IN VIRGINIA HORSE & VINEYARD COUNTRY

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Middleburg - Delaplane Depot

3 bedroom, 2 bathroom stone and redwood cottage on over 30 wooded acres

“Delaplane Depot” is nestled in 30 wooded acres, in the midst of picturesque Fauquier County, Virginia, just 2 minutes from Three Fox Vineyards and the historic train station where General Stonewall Jackson loaded his troops in preparation for the Battle of Manassas in 1861. Get away to this country estate and “unplug” for a peaceful country weekend or a week-long vacation. Delaplane Depot serves as an excellent home base while visiting Washington, D.C., or a great weekend escape for residents of the DC area.

The location is perfect for visiting the historic museums, battlefields and monuments around the DC area, or for exploring the hiking trails in Shenandoah National Park and driving the world famous ‘Skyline Drive’ in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. The neighboring towns of Middleburg, Upperville and The Plains all offer a variety of high-end restaurants, shops, antiques and are within minutes of vineyards such as Delaplane Cellars, Glen Manor, RdV Vineyards, Barrel Oak Winery, Three Fox Vineyards and Naked Mountain Winery & Vineyards, as well as a dozen more. Delaplane's postal code comprises almost two-thirds of the Middleburg American Viticultural Area and contains more working vineyards than any other on the east coast of the United States.

Dozens of other area attractions include the 1,900-acre Sky Meadows State Park (known for the annual Strawberry Festival), horseback riding, and tubing on the Shenandoah River at historic Harpers Ferry, WV. The location is also within 20-30 minutes of larger stores, restaurants and drug stores in Front Royal or Warrenton. The 3-bedroom, 2-bath private house sits on a 5-acre clearing surrounded by 30 acres of pristine woods filled with deer, fox, owl and other wildlife, which can be enjoyed while playing a game of pool in the window-lined great room or sitting out on the back stone patio grilling on a summer evening.

In the warmer months, you can fire up the gas grill and eat out on the patio with your friends and family. Or, in the cooler months, make a fire and settle in by the huge brick fireplace in the great room or sit out around the outdoor fire pit and make s'mores. Winter is a great time to get “snowed in” at Delaplane Depot!

Have children? They will love the big kids’ room that sleeps up to 7, with double-sized bunks, pull-out trundle and a futon, and that features their own TV / DVD player, games, books and beanbag chairs. The house is only 45 miles from the DC beltway and 40 minutes from Dulles International Airport and is equipped with Wi-Fi and satellite TV. Delaplane Depot sleeps up to 11 people comfortably.

This property is a 3rd generation family homestead that was originally purchased and cleared in 1969 by our grandfather, who was a university president in the Washington, DC area. Currently, it is owned by the two grandsons and enjoyed by their families, who collectively have 10 children of their own.

Ryan Elliott purchased this cottage in 1969

This was the family homestead since 1969 and a place we came to visit as kids each summer. We tramped through the woods, made forts, watched the deer, fox and birds and ate grandma's homemade applesauce. So many good memories we hope we can pass on to others!

Windows line the entire great room, and open up to the scenic views surrounding the property. The room features a huge brick fireplace, a pool table and wood beamed cathedral ceiling.

Best Family Vacation in Years!

  • 5 out of 5
This property was amazing! We traveled from New Mexico to spend some time in "greenspace" and in the Northern Virginia/DC area visiting the monuments. What we expected was to have some family fun in DC tempered by the relaxation of being out of the mainstream. What we got?? An amazing 7 day family vacation that we will never forget! While our 5 kids (ages 9-13) were excited to visit DC and all of its' attractions, they ended up having more fun at the house and exploring the woods and interacting with the wildlife than going into DC. The house is classic: So relevant to the time it was built and very well maintained. The location is perfect: Just a couple minutes from I-66 with an easy drive to DC (you'd never know it though) or out to West Virginia for outdoor adventure. The owners: Can't say enough nice things about Ryan Elliott and his 1) attention to detail and 2) communication to ensure the visit was just as expected, if not more. So many things to do for all age ranges: rafting, tubing, hiking, vineyards, horseback riding, DC attractions, biking, drive-in...and much more. Our kids have already asked if we can go back next year and just stay at the house and do outdoor activites. What a wonderful way to end a hectic summer! Thanks for the excellent hospitality Ryan -- we'll be back for sure!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled your family had such an amazing time staying at our property! It is great to see families with kids enjoying the woods and wildlife around the house in addition to getting out to see the sights in Shenandoah, W. Virginia and DC. We hope you'll come back and see us again! - Ryan (Delaplane Depot)

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely cottage was the perfect getaway for our family, as we leisurely drove through the beautiful Shenandoah Valley with its parks, caverns, and horse country. Using this quiet cottage, we were able to visit Bull Run/Manassas battlefield and explore this history of the Civil War. Being only a short distance from D. C. we spent two wonderful days exploring the history-rich capitol, with all of its monuments. My entire family agrees that this was the best family vacation that we ever had, and it was largely due to this wonderful cottage. Thank you.

The Magical History Tour

  • 5 out of 5
Our two families with 10 total, spent a week in this beautiful country estate. We had been planning a history trip to the Va/DC area for months and this home fit our needs perfectly. The beauty of this home and property grab you from the time you pull in the driveway. The home and grounds are well maintained, clean and in order. We used the home as our home base for daily trips into DC and other area attractions. The home is about 48-50 miles down 66 right into downtown DC and is about an hour drive if you avoid rush hours. The area around the home is rolling farmland filled with civil war history and multiple vineyards. We have runners in our group and they particularly enjoyed the trails at the state park down the street. The home is very spacious with room for everyone to spread out. The king beds were very comfortable, and we appreciated the extra refrigerators in the laundry room. Ryan was excellent to work with and he provided answers to all our questions about the home and traveling into DC by car. Ryan also contacted us several days before check in to see if we needed anything before our arrival, (which is a first for the half dozen VRBO homes we have rented)! Would definitely recommend the home to anyone looking to get away from it all and to enjoy all of the region's offerings. Thanks!

Multi-family extravaganza!

  • 5 out of 5
We just spent 4 days in this lovely country getaway house with three families - 13 of us in all, and everyone over 15! We used the pull-out sleeper in the couch in the common area, as well as a couple air-mattresses, but there was plenty of space for everyone, and we all loved being able to spread out and spend time together hanging out.

No one ever got bored - the kids loved playing pool, hanging out around the fire pit at night eating s'mores, walking in the woods, playing soccer in the yard, and playing games indoors. We also loved taking walks in the neighborhood, down to the country store and antique shop in Delaplane (especially when a train was coming through!) and to the Three Foxes Winery.

The owners were great, and were very flexible with us as we changed our plans after making the initial booking. The house was very clean, and had plenty of utensils, pots & pans and plates to make dinner with, and 3 refrigerators, which was very handy as we had lots of beverages that needed to stay cool. We also loved the Keurig coffee maker and the large variety of flavors that were provided for free.

We would definitely stay at this house again when visiting Virginia. There is so much to do in the area, and we feel like we just scratched the surface.

Owner's Response: Wow! Thanks so much for the review. I have to admit that I thought it might be tight with that many people (13 in total), but it sounds like you made it work for your group and enjoyed the time there. Glad you were able to explore the surroundings and the local setting. It truly is a historical place and it does take multiple trips to take it all in. We do hope you come back again! - Thanks, Ryan (Delaplane Depot)

Family Adventure in Virginia

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great stay in Delaplane. The property was spacious and well stocked. The owners were friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the extra touch of a stock of K-Cups. The kids loved staying in the kids' area. Full sized bunk beds were great for my teenaged boys. We had a fire outside a couple times in the fire pit and used the grill daily! We saw deer, foxes, and plenty of birds. We hiked the property (watch for ticks!) and played pool. The owner had a helpful binder with info on nearby attractions. We loved visiting Front Royal, including the Skyline Caverns, the Confederate Museum, and the Knotty Pine Restaurant. If you decide to make a trip into DC, take my advice and go on the weekend. Free parking at meters (at least on Sunday) and the traffic was much less insane! For wine-lovers, this property is located in the zip code that is home to the most wineries on the East Coast! I couldn't find a corkscrew wine opener, but, luckily, my husband made like MacGyver and opened a bottle for me using items in the "junk" drawer! We had a great trip!

Owner's Response: We are thrilled you all enjoyed your time as a family at our Virginia property! Glad you could do some hiking, see the sights and grill out while you relaxed. We will make sure to have the corkscrew openers handy in the future. :-) Hope you will tell your friends and come back and see us again! - Ryan (Delaplane Depot)

Country house happiness

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the country house over Memorial Day weekend couldn't have been happier. I read a previous review before the stay and didn't understand their lack of an excellent rating due to the location concern. We knew going into the weekend we were in a remote location. However the location is quite perfect considering the equidistance between attractions in Winchester (good dining), Luray (good for the kids), and Stephens City (great drive-in theater). It's also near quite a few wineries which was nice. The property itself provided the right amount of seclusion from the outside world. The home was in excellent condition, very clean, and open. The bedrooms were large and the layout afforded us the space to be apart yet the comfort to be together in the main area for quality family time. I would recommend this property to anyone, especially those looking for a quiet retreat from the hectic push and pull of city life. We will come back again.

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed your stay over Memorial Day weekend! You are right about the location...it really is a central "depot" for reaching so many places. Also glad you were able to chill and enjoy the beautiful scenery on the property. Please do come back again! - Ryan (Delaplane Depot)
