Exactly as promised!
Beautiful retreat in the mountains with amazing views. Accommodations that felt just like home!
This is a comfortable, spacious house, in a gorgeous setting, with gracious and thoughtful hosts. If you're looking for peace, quiet, and beauty, look no further.
This is a wonderful place to take a nice quiet vacation. If you love the outdoors, this is the place to visit.
The house was a great size with a nice large kitchen and had everything we needed. It was nice knowing that if we forgot something, it was right there for us. The house was extremely clean when we arrived and the decor was tastefully done as well.
The river is just a short walk, and having access to kayaks and a canoe was perfect. With all the trees by the pavilion, it was the perfect spot to come for the day and relax, jump in the water when you wanted and have enough shade that you didn't need to roast in the hot sun if you didn't want to.
This is definitely a place that I would come back to.
A beautiful, charming getaway nestled between the mountains and Shenandoah!
Our family loved our week-long stay. We were a party of 8, 6 adults and 2 children ages 8 and 9. Riverview Farm was the perfect get-away! We spent our week exploring all that the farm has to offer and taking a couple of day trips to nearby attractions..from fly-fishing, kayaking, and hiking on the farm to horseback riding, shopping, and exploring Luray Caverns, (all within a 40 minute drive) we are already talking about planning another trip next year!
Crabill's Meat Market is a MUST for steaks and sausage, Royal Horseshoe Farm provided an amazing trail ride and paired each rider with the perfect horse, we found Murray's Fly Shop in Edinburg to be the perfect go-to for our fishing equipment and the shopping in Winchester was everything one could need (Martin's Grocery Store is worth the drive!)
You can truly relax on the farm or stay busy with adventures and feel right at home!
I will make a couple of suggestions to the owners that would have made our stay more enjoyable...1) An outside eating area at the house, picnic table, table on the deck, etc would have been nice. 2) the coffee maker really does take 35+ minutes to brew a pot of coffee and was about drive my brother over the edge. 3) The frying pans have seen better days and cooking in them is virtually impossible, we literally went out and bought some to use the 2nd day we were there! 4) We found several broken beer bottles at the pavilion/bon-fire area..we cleaned up what we could, but couldn't let the kids run bare-foot because of the broken glass. Maybe a "No glass past this point" sign at the road leading to the pavilion?
I'm not complaining, it was a great vacation and we truly thank Kathleen and Jerry for everything! I would recommend this house to anyone looking for an outdoor adventure, secluded get-away, or relaxing do nothing retreat!
Thank you Michelle ,
I was not awhere that there was a problem with the coffee pot and pots and pans , we have replaced both with new ,I'm sorry there was a problem ,and I think your ideas of a picnic table is a great addition,,we will add one ,thanks for your review ,Kathleen
Great farm house on the river.
This is a really nice property suited for quiet family get aways, fishing, hiking and kayaking. Kathleen is a gracious host who is very responsive yet respectful of your privacy. The house is well appointed, tastefully decorated and has all amenities to augment those things you may have forgotten to bring. The farm fields are leased out in wheat and hay so no real active farming to disturb your peace. We saw plenty of wildlife from wild turkeys, dear, a bald eagle, osprey, plenty of ducks and small mouth bass. There is a small extra house next to the main farm house that is also rented. There was a nice couple from out of state who we hardly noticed other then to say hello but if you're looking to be completely alone this might be an issue. Glad we found this great place and will look to return.
Home Away White Farm House
We had a very relaxing week on the farm. Access to the river was great as was the fishing. The house fulfilled all our needs and the night sky was beautiful.
Looking forward to going back soon!
