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.

Sean O'Reilly purchased this cottage in 2005

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.

'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.

BEAUTIFUL VIEWS AND HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Sean and Frank were great hosts. Everything we needed was there, including games and comfortable beds. The house is the perfect distance from DC for a quick weekend getaway and the views were amazing. My friends and I hope to make an annual visit. No complaints!

PRACTICALLY PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
The pictures online will give a very, very good representation of what you get when you enter this cottage. However, they cannot capture it completely. It's even better!

This vacation rental is the best decorated I've ever seen, and the function is not sacrificed for fashion. The dining table is big - and can be made bigger, the living room furniture is inviting and conducive to conversation. The beds (OH MY, The Beds) are incredibly comfortable and the linens are scrumptious.

The kitchen has almost everything you could possibly need. We did bring a few things with us in our party (waffle iron and crock pot) but you cannot expect every single thing from your own kitchen to be in a vacation rental. Like the rest of the house, what is in the kitchen is very good quality.

The hot tub is not to be missed on a starry night. We turned out all the house lights so as not to dull our view. Gorgeous. It is steps away from the sliding door and it was little to no temperature shock and it got nippy and windy.

The privacy you get with this charming cottage is the best. My husband, our 4 friends and I are already checking our calendars to see when we can go back. It was amazing!

One little tidbit: We went to unpack our vehicle first, and surveyed the cabinets for what was there (i.e., spices, herbs, oil, sweeteners, etc...). It would seem that people have left a bit of this and a bit of that along the way. We had forgotten a few spices for our cooking back home so we picked them up on our shopping trip. Once we had finished our cooking we put the newly purchased spices up in the cupboard to join what was already there. It's kind of a way to give to those yet to visit the Overlook. And the next time we go I'll be checking to see if ours is still there, and what's been added. :-)

Enjoy!

BEST CABIN I HAVE STAYED IN YET!

  • 5 of 5
This place is wonderful. So clean, modern, new, fully equipped, etc. It is so much more spacious than the photos look with an extra sitting/TV room upstairs with a fold out couch. The porches are gorgeous, views unbeatable, nice walks around the property, huge hot tub, all new appliances, i could go on! We loved it and the owners were wonderful.

PERFECT LOCATION FOR QUIET RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
Since 2002 our small group Bible study has gone on a retreat each fall. This was the PERFECT place. We were all delighted by the coziness of the cottage - nicely decorated, warm & inviting. None of us wanted to leave the deck overlooking the river - so peaceful - a quietly beautiful place for relaxing. We enjoyed our walk around the property.
All of us want to return next fall! Thank you!!

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
As we entered the cottage to begin our week-long stay, we knew we had chosen the right property. The view of the river and mountains we matched in beauty by the interior of the house.

Shortly after our arrival, the owner checked in with us to make sure that everything was to our satisfaction--and was it ever! The house and property were clean and well-maintained, with tasteful decorations, comfortable (and ample) furnishings, and everything else we would need for our stay.

Cozy, but not cramped, the cottage comfortably accommodated our family--four adults and two children. With sitting areas upstairs and down (and two televisions) there was plenty of room to spread out for those few hours when we were not enjoying the hot tub, the river, or the surrounding area.

It is worth noting that the walk down to the river is a little strenuous--and the walk back up doubly so! At the dock, the kids swam and enjoyed the provided kayaks. With the view from the cottage and its second-floor deck being so wonderful, athletic pursuits would be the only reason to make the trek down to the dock.

While the property is secluded, it is really only minutes from route 340 and I-66. We took advantage of the location to make excursions to Front Royal, Winchester (where we visited Bonnie Blue from some amazing BBQ!), Luray Caverns, and the outlets in Leesburg. We also made the trip east to Washington, DC. Using the HOV lane, we made it to the Smithsonian in well under 90 minutes.

When our week was over, we were really sorry to go. It didn't feel like we were leaving a rental property, but rather the home of a friend.
