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 Front Royal

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.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the weekend of our daughter’s graduation from Christendom College. What a terrific location, only 15min away!

The view is outstanding and surrounding woods are peaceful and serene! The house itself was very comfortable and very well appointed. We have rented many times for vacations and would not hesitate to recommend this house! Also, communicating with the owners was no problem, they were quick to respond; which was actually only once as everything was in place for us! If you stay here, I hope you have as wonderful a time as we did!

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

The views are fabulous and can be enjoyed from pretty much every room in the house. Hard to believe but the house is even nicer than the photos show. The kitchen was well stocked with quality pots/pans/cutlery/glassware/dishes as well as all kinds of gadgets. There was plenty of space for our group of 8(6 adults, 2 children) and tons of board games. The outdoor sitting and fire pit was a favourite with us. The hot tub was a little dated but we still made good use of it. Lovely house, beautiful location and fantastic views. Couldnt have asked for a better place to vacation with family.

Amazing!

The house is beautiful and the grounds are spectacular! My family did not want to leave. The dock at the river and the hot tub were our favorites.
