EXQUISITE RIVERFRONT PARADISE...OVER 100 ACRES- HIKE, BOAT,SWIM WITHOUT LEAVING!

Front Royal House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 1/2 BA, sleeps 6

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.

RELAXING AND IMPRESSIVE

  • 5 of 5
Our family has looked on-line all over the mountains of Virginia for a place like this. None have been as nice as this place. The combination of pretty farm land, Skyline Drive only minutes away and the river on three sides makes this our favorite by far. You can get more luxury and amenities at a re$ort but none we've found gives you the farm, the mountains and river in one package, not to mention, none will give you a 100 acres all to yourself.

Our family and friends enjoyed a wonderful week here in June of 2014 (2nd visit here). It is honestly better in person than any picture can convey. The house is well appointed and comfortable. Outside is even better. Sitting on the porch and walking the fields is the only way one can get a true sense of all the acreage that one has sole use of at this property. Besides the Farm house itself, the barn with the game room was much appreciated by both the kids and the parents - bring an extra Wii controller and batteries if there is a bad weather day. If the weather is good we recommend a day down at the river playing and fishing on the river's edge, using the canoe that is provided and grilling on the grill that is riverside, too. (Note, we had no idea there was a heat wave down in DC while we were staying here, it is truly cooler here.) Also, I recommend bringing a boat or renting their pontoon boat - the owner's son who goes by the name Sean, though we are all convinced he is actually the actor Orlando Bloom, will kindly help you with the boat rental. As a group we all caught all the fish we wanted - I for one have rarely seen such large sunfish. Another favorite at the farm house was the gas fire pit that the adults enjoyed talking around each evening while the kids chased lighting bugs and played in the hammock. (If you don't have kids with you, please enjoy that hammock, I could not get time in it without a bevy of kids piling on me.) In short, this is a great place that is relaxing and impressive.

WONDERFUL REMOTE FARMHOUSE AND PROPERTY.

  • 5 of 5
Our visit hit all the right notes, with fishing, exploring, reading, hiking and cooking all high on the list. Amazing property that is deftly kept up by the owners who have the "right touch". Only touch of civilization was the hum of the freeway which though not visible was noticeable. One of the wonders of the Shenandoah Valley!

HAD AN AWESOME STAY HERE

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time. We reached pretty late on the day we arrived and were almost lost. Frank was very kind to answer our call and direct us to the farm house. The house is well furnished and had most of the condiments required for cooking. We got the rest from the nearby stores. The place is very quiet and peaceful. We enjoyed the canoe, kayaks, the rec room. The ping pong table was not in a very good shape, but we played quite a few games. There also have a good collection of movies of which we watched a few. We definitely recommend this place to people of all ages.

JUST WHAT WE NEEDED

  • 4 of 5
Was 40-50 degrees the 4 days we stayed, so not as warm as we had hoped for a Spring Break. So, we didn't go canoeing as planned. However, still went on a great 4-hour Appalachian Trail hike from the top of Blue Mountain Road, 10 minutes away. Spent the rest of our time relaxing in the house, watching DVD movies (no cable), etc. Best day was spent on the riverbank. We brought our own portable fire pit and we took it down the short gravel deive at the back of the house behind the barn, down the hill to a beautiful clearing by the river. Clearing is almost as big as a football field, grass-covered with a few tall trees for shade, and there are no houses on the opposite side of the river there. Perfect place for some secluded relaxation, complete with lawn chairs, picnic table and plenty of room for the kids to run around and play. We spent the whole day sitting by the fire, talking, drinking, playing. Great time.

Owner's Response: Thanks for spending your break with us. The farm is a real beauty spot and the river clearing is wonderful-as you discovered. We wish everyone had perfect weather because then wonderful becomes magical. Hope you come back and experience the weather you were wishing for. Best, Frank

A PEACEFUL, GENUINE, FAMILY REUNION AND HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Our family from the entire coast of the US all met at this beautiful central point and spent our Christmas holiday there with peace, quiet, joy, love and beautiful scenery. It was a marvelous way to reconnect and refresh, an absolutely perfect holiday. Everyone got to do what they wanted, walk, play in the rec barn, shop nearby, see historic sites all around, or just nothing at all. No internet, no cable, just each other reconnecting with relatives and with nature (deer were everywhere in the snow). A lovely historic, well maintained property. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to REALLY get away from it all.

PEACEFUL, QUIET, RELAXING

  • 4 of 5
What a paradise on earth! we have enjoyed the peace and quiet of a long weekend - lots to do without having to leave the property! The house is nice, clean and well appointed. Everything we needed was right there. My only "but" is that it does not really fit 8, as advertised - there are beds for 6, and 2 couches that are not really sleepers sofas (our kids slept there anyway, but I was hoping for something more suitable). I am hoping to return to this wonderful property at some point, anyway. Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks for sharing your great experience at the Farm. The large sectional sofa downstairs is actually a sleeper but it isn't a traditional fold out. It has an Ikea pop-up design under one "L" with bedding storage under the other "L". Based on your experience I will go ahead and put pictures along with detailed instructions in the house. I do allow up to eight guests before extra charges apply and I spell out (hopefully clearly) what bedding is in each bedroom in the listing. I am delighted that you had such a wonderful stay.
