About the property

4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Gorgeous Views

Original to the Civil War era, the Barn at Two Rivers has been newly renovated to provide a serene setting for health retreats and small conferences, family and group reunions, and special occasions. An open floor plan with original hardwood floors and large windows; a cathedral ceiling on the first floor with an expansive living area and kitchen furnished with gourmet-quality appliances; 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, including 2 master suites, endow this beautiful space — vintage charm coupled with modern amenities. For larger groups, additional lodging is available at a pleasant motel just minutes away.

Nearby attractions include Harper’s Ferry, nestled between the confluences of the Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, and the site of John Brown’s raid which began the American Civil War. Civil War enthusiasts are attracted to the battlefields that dot the surrounding countryside. The Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers draw many white water rafters, kayakers, canoers, and campers. The C&O Canal and The Appalachian Trail are also located here and attract bikers, hikers, campers and bird watchers from around the world.

Amenities include central air, dishwasher, granite counter tops, gas stove, washer/dryer.

About Ali Safayan

I have an integrative medical practice in DC. My dear friend owned this property, and I enjoyed visiting her for many delicious dinners and delightful getaways over the years before she passed away. I purchased and renovated the barn in her memory, and still enjoy visiting with family and friends, and also use the facility to host educational retreats.

Ali Safayan purchased this barn in 2012

What makes this barn unique

It is perfectly centered among all of the area's fun and historic attractions, yet offers complete privacy in a beautiful natural setting. The barn itself has historic ambiance but is fully renovated with modern conveniences -- a very special place.

Great place to get away with friends.

  • 5 of 5

I booked the barn for a weekend with some friends. We wanted to be close to Harper's Ferry and have access to the great breweries and distilleries in Purcellville, as well as the hiking trails. The barn was perfect for our group of eight. We made good use of the large kitchen space and the open floorplan was ideal for a large group.

Ali was extremely helpful and provided a lot of helpful information that made checking in and out quite simple. He was responsive and available when I needed to text or call him regarding details before and during our stay.

If you have a large group that will respect the rules of the property, this is a great location to get away from the city and enjoy time with friends and family.

Beautiful and peaceful spot

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. There are lots of beds, but not much privacy if you have couples in a big group -- all of the rooms with queen beds have single beds in them as well. Kitchen and deck are great places to hang out and relax.

Weekend Birthday Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I made the decision I wanted to get out of the city for my milestone birthday and enjoy a more peaceful country setting. I was able to do just this at Ali's renovated barn in Knoxville, MD. I loved the rustic charm of the barn and appreciated the modern conveniences of fully stocked kitchen. The large deck and large glass windows offered crowd pleasing views of the countryside. We were blessed with beautiful weather during our stay and spent many hours on the deck. A good friend of mine catered paella dinner on Saturday night. I would recommend this to anyone wishing to escape the rat race and relax with nature for a weekend.

A true retreat and absolute gem--great for groups!

  • 5 of 5

The barn at two rivers was truly magical for my group of 8. If you're looking to spend some time together in a beautiful place and to really connect, this is the listing for you! The kitchen and common space are large yet intimate. Rooms are comfortable and elegant. Ali was the most amazing host: friendly, clear and timely in his communications. He spent time on the phone with me recommending local activities and even drew us a personalized map for a hike that begins right on the property.

We made amazing memories here. With any luck, we'll be back!
