Overview

About the property

3 BR, 2 1/2 BA, sleeps 8

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.

Beautiful location and no need to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the farm! We were greeted by majestic bald eagles that were nesting on the property. In the morning there were deer, a fox, and a tom turkey trying to impress the ladies. The house itself was lovely- clean and well stocked with comfortable beds. The kayaks, canoe, carport and indoor and outdoor fireplaces were icing on the cake. Another bonus- the owner was super responsive when we had a minor issue with fire alarm. Although he was away, he sent over his very pleasant brother in law who solved the problem quickly. We would not hesitate to return!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We could not have hoped for anything more from this property. We can't begin to express how fortunate we feel to have had the chance to create special family memories at the farm over this past Easter weekend. It was a "WOW" in every way. Our gratitude to Sean and Frank for their family's willingness to share this home and all its beautiful surroundings with us. It was a weekend we shall never forget.

All the very best

Sharon and Andy

"The best place ever!" - Our kids

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to leave a review because I don't want everyone else to flock to our new favorite vacation spot!

: ) However, we truly had the most relaxing few days at the Rolling River Farmhouse. Our children ran around outside the entire time, between playing frisbee/soccer in the grass, to fishing, to the hammock. The home was cozy and charming, and the bathrooms were one of the cleanest of any home we've rented for vacation. One morning we were making waffles, when I realized the one thing I forgot was syrup! To my surprise, there was some in the pantry...so we really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. We would love to come back and stay longer to explore the area. Our kids and our friends' kids (8, 6, 9, 6) all agreed this was the best place ever : ) Thank you so much for the unforgettable experience!

Wonderful peace and quiet, still with plenty to do

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent 2 and half delightful weeks at Rolling River Farm. We also had our Australian Shepherd with us. We love to walk and easily walked several miles every day on the farm. The house was comfortable and met all our needs. We were truly alone and felt we had the place to ourselves. Even though we value the solitude we were still close to Front Royal and all necessary shopping and support services. The surrounding area has much to offer and every day we explored a new hiking area or sight to see. All were within a relatively short drive of the farm. We canoed on the Shenandoah River and enjoyed a variety of wildlife. Although not dedicated birders we easily identified 24 different species of birds during our time there. Our hosts, Sean and Frank O‘Reily were great. We would love to come back.

Lovely Farm House!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect. I will always have amazing memories of my birthday weekend spent here. I couldn't have asked for anything better! It was so much fun. We loved exploring the property and having fun in the game room. The kitchen was also wonderful for cooking. I really loved everything about this house.
