About the property

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.

-600 SQ/FT Rec/Workout room with large screen 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...

About Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly

They say that some opportunities are 'once in lifetime' but our family's opportunity to own this magical property was 'once in many lifetimes" as the farm was owned by the previous owners since before the Civil War. Being in construction and real estate for over 35 years I can say that if I had set off to find a property like this it would have been impossible...now it is our family's delight to share it with all of you.

Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly purchased this house in 2005

Why Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly chose Shenandoah Valley

Ever dream of rolling hills of green surrounded by woodlands washed with ever changing light and cloud... with a river flowing around it all! Rolling River Farm is such a place. Some folks come and find it hard to leave. It is easy to get to (an hour from the Washington Beltway). It is literally within sight of Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest yet with easy access to restaurants, wineries, and shops.

What makes this house unique

Private waterfront destination with over 100 acres to roam and explore. Great for large family reunions with other Rolling River Holiday cottages within walking distance.

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 property with a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay at this property. The location was perfect - out in the country but only 15 minutes away from Walmart and Aldi and under 30 minutes from the Front Royal entrance to Shenandoah National Park. We had a great time on the river using the canoe and kayak provided. We had 9 people staying in the house yet it did not feel overcrowded. We would definitely stay here again if we visit Front Royal again.

Lovely home - perfect for a weekend getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love staying at this farmhouse! Beautiful property with charming decor, but modern amenities. The game room attachment to the barn is a wonderful place to enjoy time playing ping pong, foosball, air hockey, or enjoying a movie. The property itself is perfect for hiking, with private embankment to access the river. Perfect for a weekend getaway with friends and family and only a short hour-and-a-half drive from D.C.

Beautiful location and no need to leave!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the farm! We were greeted by majestic bald eagles that were nesting on the property. In the morning there were deer, a fox, and a tom turkey trying to impress the ladies. The house itself was lovely- clean and well stocked with comfortable beds. The kayaks, canoe, carport and indoor and outdoor fireplaces were icing on the cake. Another bonus- the owner was super responsive when we had a minor issue with fire alarm. Although he was away, he sent over his very pleasant brother in law who solved the problem quickly. We would not hesitate to return!

Owner's Response: The wildlife welcoming you to the property and escorting you out is one of the most unique aspects of this property! I'm so glad they came out to meet you. Thank you for your patience with the little things. We are so happy to have had you stay and hearing you would happily return is the best review we can get!

Spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We could not have hoped for anything more from this property. We can't begin to express how fortunate we feel to have had the chance to create special family memories at the farm over this past Easter weekend. It was a "WOW" in every way. Our gratitude to Sean and Frank for their family's willingness to share this home and all its beautiful surroundings with us. It was a weekend we shall never forget.

All the very best

Sharon and Andy

"The best place ever!" - Our kids

  • 5 of 5

I hesitate to leave a review because I don't want everyone else to flock to our new favorite vacation spot!

: ) However, we truly had the most relaxing few days at the Rolling River Farmhouse. Our children ran around outside the entire time, between playing frisbee/soccer in the grass, to fishing, to the hammock. The home was cozy and charming, and the bathrooms were one of the cleanest of any home we've rented for vacation. One morning we were making waffles, when I realized the one thing I forgot was syrup! To my surprise, there was some in the pantry...so we really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen. We would love to come back and stay longer to explore the area. Our kids and our friends' kids (8, 6, 9, 6) all agreed this was the best place ever : ) Thank you so much for the unforgettable experience!
