About Mary Jane Cappello

My husband, Chris, started as an organic beef farmer. When he retired from that, he started breeding Belgian draft horses and working the farm for hay and timber. He then started a sawmill, excavation and alternative construction business that exists presently. Chris is active in local government and is on the Boards of many local organizations. I am a retired special needs school teacher who presently works on the farm, volunteers in the community and manages the vacation rental property.

Mary Jane Cappello purchased this house in 1973

Why Mary Jane Cappello chose Virginia

The location of King Mountain House at the back of Horseshoe Hollow Farm offers a very serene, secluded and quiet retreat. However, it is close enough to all of Rappahannock County's villages when activity is desired. The house's design offers an open, spacious bright and comfortable getaway with all modern conveniences. It is equally suitable for couples and/or small groups.

What makes this house unique

The King Mountain House's design makes it a suitable and comfortable getaway for 2-8 It is also a perfect property for small specialty groups such as yogis, equestrians, school/family reunions and hunters.

Gorgeous house inside and out

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for my family and my sister's, eight people in total. The living room was spacious, with multiple sitting areas and beautiful pieces of art - sculpture, paintings, textiles. The entire house had interesting art and books. The beds were very comfortable and luxurious. The kitchen was spotless and well-stocked, with plenty of space to cook and entertain.

The setting of the house and the views were amazing too. We saw the sun rise in the morning and really enjoyed looking out onto such beautiful landscape. Our stay was in January, and the house was cozy. We also hope to stay in the summer someday, and take advantage of the fire pit, outdoor grill and beautiful land around the house.

Lastly but also important, the owner was very helpful and friendly, and the instructions in the house for how various things work were clear and concise.

Perfect get away with spectacular view!

  • 4 of 5

We couldn't have picked a better spot than this lovely mountain home. The views were spectacular, main level was perfect for our son who's in a wheelchair with a bedroom and 'roll in' shower, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with tools for your 'inner cook.' Close enough/far enough from Washington, DC, I just know we'll be back!

Well appointed house surrounded by natural beauty, stunning views

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful Thanksgiving with local and out of town family (who had no problem getting to the property from Dulles airport, very convenient). Everything we needed was there, and the entire rental process - rental to check out- was easy and efficient. My husband and I plan to return several times a year to enjoy the different seasons and the peaceful surroundings. Chris and Mary Jane are gracious hosts who take great care in ensuring their guests comfort.
