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. 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.
We can suggest other amenities such as babysitting, horse boarding, and catering.
Bring your horses. They can graze in the pasture or overnight in the barn. Next day, enjoy riding through the woods along the river or in the riding ring.
Caretaker lives in a separate location 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 (9), chickens, and organic vegetables and teach homesteading classes (food/water/fuel storage, gardening, dehydrating food, canning, grinding wheat/baking bread, cheese making, raising chickens, sooo much more!). 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.
Blessings to you ~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 (the Cottage), we shouted "this is it!" Pastures, rolling hills, forest, ponds, creek, and barns; every window displayed this glorious creation. We were finally home!
Delightful amenities include: large private swimming 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 - catch and eat policy and no license needed), hiking along Cedar Run River, fire circle, volleyball, basketball, catering, babysitting, horse boarding available. We are a pet friendly home so bring your furry family members.
We now offer skeet shooting for guests age 16 and older. Ask us about it.
If you are planning a retreat, reunion or corporate gathering with more than 24-26 guests, please remember that we have a ELEGANT COUNTRY COTTAGE located on the farm that can sleep an additional 14 guests...in classic country style! See VRBO 565710 for the description of the COTTAGE. We also have our VICTORIAN which sleeps 18 guests. This beautiful addition to the Farm, has a theater room, game room and a hot tub to enjoy. When all 3 homes are rented by the same group, 58 guests can be accommodated.
My family of 30+, ages 1-86, (we rented the adjacent Victorian, too) were there the first week of August 2016. I collected the following feedback after we left.
The grounds are beautiful
Nice, clean swimming pool
Sitting on the front and back decks is great
Lots of seating for meals
Lots of shelving for storage of groceries
Great to be able to sleep so many people
Extremely gracious and responsive owners
Almost everything in the kitchen is old. It's as if someone used everything for many years then just moved
out and left it all behind
The dish washer leaks
More dish towels
A refrigerator with all the shelves and drawers. And the door shelves need to stay attached to the door.
More mixing bowls
For the number of people the house expects to feed it desperately needs another oven.
The game room - a major feature we were looking forward to using - was a great disappointment.
The pool table is badly out-of-plumb and shaky; not suitable for anything but kid-play
Even the poker table wobbles
The air hockey table is barely functional. At a minimum the surface needs to be waxed
The surface of the ping-pong table is bubbled and uneven. We went out to buy our own paddles
Soft spots in several planks will present as holes, especially to older people
A plate screwed to the surface is a tripping hazard
The entire surface of the deck is slippery. Several people - kids and adults - slipped or fell walking from
from the pool to the back door
The area around the grill is especially slippery (food oils, etc)
We had a great time at Hidden Hollow and we'll consider going back because it's close to family. But if you've
stayed at other VRBO properties don't expect this one to meet the price/value standards you might be
Our family of 23, ranging in age from 3 weeks to grandparents, could not have found a better location for our reunion this year! Centrally located between our Florida and New Hampshire homes, the farmhouse was the perfect spot.
Between the pool, the enormous and well stocked game room, the fishing pond, the hiking trails, the fire pit, and the amazing rope swing (I could keep going) there was never a dull moment for anyone.
The kitchen was stocked with everything needed to prepare a meal for a large group; the backyard gas grill was in use every day.
When our four days were up we hated to leave! We would have liked to explore the wineries in the area, and maybe spend time on nearby Skyline Drive, but we couldn't seem to tear ourselves away from what we had right there at the farmhouse.
Thanks, Wally and Pat, for being such attentive and gracious hosts.
I rented the farmhouse to celebrate my 30th bday with a bunch of my friends, and we had a marvelous time! There is plenty of common space to spread out in, lots of fun indoor and outdoor activities (including a pool, volleyball court, fire circle, a huge game room, a rope swing, and more), and very comfortable accommodations. I will definitely be returning to Hidden Hollow for future weekend getaways! Thanks, Pat & Wally!
We filled the house with our group that came for a long weekend to tour Washington DC. The house exceeded our expectations, we enjoyed the property, so many things to do. If we were to come back we would leave one day to just enjoy the property there. Wally And Pat were amazing hosts, and helped us figure out how to get into the city. As well as other questions that came up. We hope to come back soon.
Game room is amazing. Only 1 hour from DC. Kitchen is really well equipped, including professional-grade gas range and hood. 3 supermarkets 5 minutes away. We loved it.
22 of my friends and I rented the farmhouse for New Years Eve. It has beautiful views and feels secluded, but with the bonus of having a grocery store 5 minutes away. The game room is great and even bigger than it seems in the pictures. We had plenty of room throughout the house and deck area even with our large number of people.
The kitchen is well equipped, we had no problem making huge meals for 20+ people. Pat was a joy to interact with when booking the house. I definitely recommend the Farmhouse, we may rent it again in the future in the summer time to utilize the pool!
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 (up to 26 GUESTS) & COTTAGE (up to 14 GUESTS) VICTORIAN (up to 18 GUESTS) for up to 58 guests if you rent all 3 homes. The harmony of ponds, woods, rolling hills, and homestead atmosphere make this a wonderful place to visit. There are great views from every window! Everyone will enjoy the hiking trails along the river and through the woods. Also, here in horse/wine country, we have over 22 wineries to tour, local farm markets to shop at, and Old Town Warrenton to discover.
Check out our state website - virginia.org; it will be helpful in planning your visit to horse/wine country. Our website is - hiddenhollowvacationrentals.com and you will find lots of great photos and information.
If you would like to have an intimate event on the Farm, we welcome groups of 50 (maximum). We have recently created a country event 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 1000.00 for up to 5 hours up to 10 pm in the evening. Picnic tables and party lights are included.
