Overview

Front Royal House Rental Photos and Description

3 BR, 2 1/2 BA, sleeps 8

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.

Beautiful and serene

  • 5 of 5

We chose this location partly because it is near our son and grandchildren. What a great week we had! The kids loved the river and the acres of rolling hills. When it was too hot there was the game room - air conditioned with activities for everyone. And then back to the river! The kitchen is great and the beds are comfy. I personally enjoyed some quiet time in the kayak and the wonderful views from the porch. It was very difficult to leave this little piece of paradise on the Shenandoah.

Excellent visit! Clean and quiet with plenty to do.

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Nice break from hustle and bustle but nice to have civilization right around the corner since I had to restock the food constantly for the teenager contingent!

We were bummed the pontoon boat was damaged prior to our visit but a ski tubing arrangement was offered and we appreciate the effort that took. It was a great last minute fix--indicative of the accommodating nature of the owners. Just a lovely stay.

Great Country Living....

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous opportunity for our family to celebrate country living. The property is lovely, the house extremely comfortable, swimming in the river was refreshing AND we took a picture of the most beautiful, full double rainbow ever witnessed. The property owners are very accommodating and kind.

We enjoyed our visit very much,

Owner's Response: Thanks to the Gray and Farr family for coming to the farm. One of the very best things about opening our farmhouse to other families is the privilege of hosting such wonderful folks! We always enjoy those special occasions where we get to meet our guests and hear a bit of their story. We are grateful that you choose Rolling River Farm when you heard the call to come to the mountains from your beautiful spot on the Chesapeake Bay. Best Regards from the O'Reillys

Paradise is the right word

  • 5 of 5

Excellent for a family getaway... rolling fields, the Shenandoah, privacy and a Walmart for everything you need/forgot.

Road in is part of the adventure... and we got friendly waves from the neighbors on our comings and goings.

Recommend this farm highly, especially if you've never experienced calling a big, beautiful riverfront farm home.

Owner's Response: Thanks Alexander! It was a pleasure to have you and your family. We agree it is an excellent family getaway...even when you live just nearby like us! No matter where you are from or how long you stay, we always hope the house and property becomes a "Paradise" for our guests. So, we are thrilled you found it to be so. Warm Regards from the O'Reilly's

Lots of fun, great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was as described and well maintained. The kids had lots of fun kayaking and catching fish in the river. After being out during the day, they were always happy to get back to the house and play games or go to the river. We didn't use the game room as much as we thought we would, however -- it was a little too musty (no big deal - just needs to be aired out a bit). Having the second shower in the game room also proved less useful than what we hoped...people preferred to just wait until the shower in the house was free, rather than bringing everything across the yard (it was vacation -- we were all feeling lazy!). We tried out the propane fire pit, but it doesn't give off as much heat as a regular (wood) campfire, so we ended up back inside. I'm sure it would be great on a summer night, when you just have it for ambience, and don't also need it for warmth! Even though it's at the end of the road and has lots of land, it wasn't as private as we expected. (We live in a rural area, though, so maybe our expectations were too high.) Someone from the power company came to the dam every day. There was a trailer parked next to the barn, which someone came and got one day. Another time, two teenagers walked up and got mowers out of the barn and drove off. And once when we got home, there was a truck parked at the edge of the driveway. It was still there when we left the next morning. No one bothered us or interfered in any way with our stay....it just took away some of the illusion of privacy. We still had a great time at the house, and it was well suited (and well located) for our needs.

Owner's Response: Hi Christa, It really is a wonderful observation that you could not wait to get back to the house everyday. Some of our visitors arrive and cannot tear themselves away-even for the day! As you point out. our location really is marvelous. It is always a pleasure to enjoy the feeling that you are both "away from it all," yet only four miles from shopping and restaurants...then, of course, not much farther- Shenandoah National Park, Skyline Drive, George Washington National Forest, wineries, battlefields...and the list goes on. Keeping up with 108 acres and maintaining the yard (and a mile of mowed walking paths plus river clearing and, this time of year, Spring cleaning) is definitely a family effort. We do our best to be "ghosts" and do as much as we can between guest stays (and raindrops) which is not always possible. We naturally keep mowers and equipment at the property, as well as the farm truck (the Green Beast), all of which is kept out of sight from the farmhouse itself. The wet and cool spring weather this year definitely made for a scheduling challenge though we do try to be invisible. The two industrious young men you mentioned are my 16 year old identical twins, James and Joe, the current official groundsmen (who commute to the farm by kayak)! Thanks for coming! Frank, Sean and the rest of the O'Reilly Clan
