Linden Hall Farm Guest House

A Sojourn in the Country

Our Northern Virginia Guest House is your home in the country for a week or a weekend -- a peaceful and central location near the many attractions in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Western Maryland, West Virginia and Pennsylvania.

Enjoy a rural setting with upscale accommodations and privacy in a newly renovated farmhouse (circa 1790's) located on 35 acres in historic Loudoun County. The guest house is unique and separate from the main house, giving you your own private entrance, a fully equipped country kitchen, a living room and studio, so guests have plenty of space for privacy or gatherings. There are two beautifully decorated bedrooms upstairs, a small bedroom downstairs off the kitchen, and a newly renovated bathroom. The guest house features two porches, with one overlooking the gardens and the Blue Ridge mountains. There are stables and a ring available for horses. You are welcome to walk the grounds or swim or relax in our Endless Pool.

It just is a wonderful, peaceful, private setting!

Come hike, bike or ride your horse on the 184.5 mile long Chesapeake & Ohio Canal located along the north bank of the Potomac River, starting in Washington, DC and ending in Cumberland, MD. Hike the Appalachian Trail. Raft or kayak on the Potomac or Shenandoah Rivers, or visit historic Leesburg, Harper's Ferry or the many local Civil War battlefields, all within an hour or less scenic drive. Or, you can relax and enjoy the view of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains from your private porch, while sipping wine from the local vineyards. Or cool off in the same setting in our Endless Pool.

Visit award winning Virginia wineries, just minutes from the house. Dine at excellent restaurants within 30 minutes drive. Shop at antiques shops, Leesburg Outlets Mall, or in prominent locations such as Middleburg VA. Spend an evening at the Charles Town WV race track and casino. See museums, from the Brunswick Railroad Museum (5 min) to the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum (40 min).

A commuter train to Washington is just 5 min away. Or just relax and enjoy the quiet setting.

Initial continental breakfast makings provided in a complete country kitchen.

About Bart Hodgson

Bart and Carol are your hosts at Linden Hall. The property was acquired in 1997. The previous owners had purchased the home in the 1960s and spent over 20 years restoring the rundown buildings, for which they won the 1984 Loudoun Preservation Society Merit Award. Since then, the Hodgson’s have continued to enhance the home inside and out. The Guest House was previously a rental home. In the Summer of 2009, the Hodgson’s decided to create an upscale lodging which would emphasize the rural setting and availability of local attractions. Over the following months, they labored to upgrade the kitchen, bathroom and furnishings throughout the residence.

The doors to Linden Hall Guest House opened in November 2010.

Bart Hodgson purchased this chateau / country house in 1997

Why Bart Hodgson chose Northern Virginia - Washington DC

Warm, comfortable, and in a relaxing country setting central to many activities.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The setting is beautiful, and we have added a lot of landscaping. Children enjoy the farm animals and tire swing in a shaded lawn. The Guest House has a laundry, which makes it excellent for families on vacation. With free Wi-Fi, the Guest House offers a quiet and peaceful place to keep in touch with work and other interests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Linden Hall Farm

A deeply invigorating, peaceful, reflective and nurturing experience.

Toobaa Academy’s retreat is intended to help nurture the inner potential of each of our girls. Nurturing the progressive growth of each girl leads to perfection by the Grace of The Almighty. Just as a seed has potential that can be nurtured by skilled gardeners and can eventually become a beautiful plant; each girl has potential that can be nurtured. Linden Hall Farm, with its pristine and awe inspiring landscape was again the ideal environment for each of our girl to bloom and make manifest the potential that The Almighty has placed inside her.

Thank you for the exquisite accommodation and gracious hospitality. We fully enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells, tastes and textures of God’s creation with a symphony of other critters. We are filled with gratitude for the opportunity and time to meditate with such beauty all around. We are blessed to have Linden Hall Farm as an anchor for personal and spiritual growth.

Our souls have been nourished, our feet have been rested and our hearts filled with peace and tranquility.

Just got back from this lovely place. Owners- outstanding! We had everything we needed. Any question answered. The back porch ahhhhhhh. The critters- dogs, mini donkeys, sheep- so cute! The house has every thing you need AND is CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN. I have stayed in many vrbo/homeaway properties and this is possibly the cleanest I have ever stayed at and clean is always my first priority - it makes everything comfortable.... Close to tons of wineries, Harpers Ferry and other cute country towns. Ate at WK Hearth- $$$ but worth EVERY PENNY!!!!!!!! Didn't use the pool because it is still too cold but I suppose that would be great too! Don't second guess yourself and just stay here!!!!!

Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

We were 5 college friends looking for a relaxing weekend in a beautiful area and we got much more than that! The house is better than the pics could possibly convey and the extras such as breakfast food, area history and access to the pool show what caring and conscientious host the Hodgson's are. We had a wonderful time at the vineyards and wish we had had more time to try out more of the local restaurants Bart recommended or to have seen some of the historical landmarks around the area. This will just give us a reason to come back which I will absolutely look to do sooner than later. Thank You!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Allison, and thanks to all five of you! The Guest House is frequently a gathering point for longtime friends, and for family reunions. With relaxing and comfortable surroundings and easy driving to many local venues, Linden Hall Farm has hosted many such events. So, we hope there will be a Second Annual Reunion for WVU. See you next near, unless of course you want to let your husband in on it sooner!

GREAT Girlfriend Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a getaway close to home where we could just relax, drink wine and enjoy a quiet and peaceful location. Linden Hall gave us all of that and so much more! Bart and Carol are amazing hosts and it shows in every detail. The guest house is immaculate, the beds were so comfy, great towels and linens, and everything you need in the way of toiletries. Although we had brought our own wine, appetizers and snack foods, the owners made sure that the fridge was fully stocked for our breakfast. Farm fresh eggs (yes, from their farm) along with everything else you could want with them, coffee and sweet rolls. We cut fresh herbs from the garden and had gourmet meals right out on the veranda which became our go to spot for the entire time we were there. We did go hiking in Harper's Ferry, West Virginia which is just a short ride from the farm. The town of Purcellville is also close by and offers quite a few excellent restaurants for dinner. We loved our stay at Linden Hall and plan on coming back soon!

Owner's Response: Thank you for this nice review! The trend in our reviews is not just the five star rating, it includes references to relaxing, quiet, private, appointment, and proximity to wineries, restaurants, and interesting sites to tour, shop or recreate. But it's fun people like you that make it a pleasure for us to be your hosts. Do come again!

An absolute gem!

  • 5 of 5

Linden Hall Farm was a perfect location for my family to spend some time between traveling from Pittsburgh to Washington DC. The location was perfect to explore Civil War Battlefields, West Virginia, and enjoy some local wineries. The farm house was beautiful and a great fit for our family of 5 and my children could not get enough of the donkeys! Bart and his lovely wife were very helpful and made us feel at home. Thank you so much for a wonderful time.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Stuart. I'm glad we were able to lure you away from the 'burbs! It was great to see the kids have fun, and they certainly got some use out of the yard games. Great place for a family. I'm sure the laundry room got some use, too. So, please come again!
