About Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly

My wife Angelique and I bought this historic property from a family that had owned it for 155 years! This once in a lifetime chance (several lifetimes actually) was simply too much to miss. With such a spectacular riverfront location, our goal was to create the most memorable vacation retreat in the Shenandoah Valley. After years of planning and design for a river cottage, to compliment the existing renovated farmhouse (a ten minute walk away through the woods and rolling fields), the results are yours to enjoy. One of our sons Sean took over online reservations in 2012 but dad Frank is still the 'boots on the ground' and will be on the other end of the phone if you call. Our family never tires of it and it is our joy to share it with you.

Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly chose Shenandoah Valley

After 30 years of living on the Shenandoah River, enjoying it's beauty and recreational possibilities, we were still awestruck by the sheer magnitude and combination of nature's bounty possessed by this farm...thousands of feet of River Front, sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, acres of rolling hills and woods, sunrises, sunsets...the list goes on and on.

What makes this cottage unique

'Peacefulness without loneliness' is an old Irish expression that captures the private wooded riverside retreat yet convenience of so many attractions, shops and restaurants nearby to the River Overlook Cottage at Rolling River Farm.

Peaceful, relaxing vacation -- will stay again

  • 5 of 5

First the basics -- we rented this house for 4 nights in early November, and it provided everything that was listed in the description. However, it's hard to capture the essence of our stay. Our goal was solitude with the option to get out and do something if we felt like it. The location on the river is fabulous, with the sweeping views. The property was very secluded, and we saw deer and wild turkeys on the farm. The interior of the house was very relaxing and well done; everything was top notch (including the mattresses!). I can't say enough good things about this property and the responsiveness of the owner and property manager. You won't regret it!

Perfection personified!

  • 5 of 5

This slice of heaven is hidden on the side of the hill overlooking the bend in the river. The house is well appointed, lovely and designed with both gathering and alone time in mind. It was loved by each of us and we would all glowingly recommend it to anyone interested in natural beauty, quiet contentment and serenity. The landlord is great to deal with and they do a fine job of making sure that you have all that you need. Great and most memorable stay!

Awesome! A must!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I highly recommend a retreat from busyness! This place met all our expectations (and I am picky). Clean and well equiped. The views were amazing. We saw bald eagles, raccoon and lots of deer. The hot tub offerred a night star filled sky and sunrises. Loved the sky lights! We star gazed in bed! Can't wait to return!

Overlook property Front Royal VA

  • 4 of 5

We had a very nice few days at the house overlooking the Shenandoah River. The house is clean and very open. The property around the house is well maintained. We especially liked the area behind the house, the porch with comfortable seating and the gas fire pit area, and the hot tub. The area is very quiet and secluded. We didn't see anyone except on the drive to the gate. Front Royal is about 10 min away. Several deer showed up every morning, also saw turkeys, dove and a lone eagle sitting atop a tree. The path down to the dock is quite steep. We hiked in the Shenandoah National Park a couple of times, saw Luray Caverns one day, and drove to Monticello, a 2 hr drive from the house but well worth it.

I would recommend this house.

Beautiful retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect retreat from the city that we'd been craving. Just 90 min from DC, but it feels like you're a world away. Both the house and the views are even better than the pictures! It was quiet with beautiful views from nearly every window and seat. We really enjoyed our two nights here along with our 2 young children and we hope to return soon.

Everything was great. The view, the house, etc. Only problem was finding the place. Otherwise I would recommend to anyone who wants a quite vacation. We will probably rent the house again at another time.
