Photos and Description of this Front Royal holiday house

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.

A must if you want it all; space to run and play, hike, river, views of the mountains, and enjoy the outdoors and indoors in comfort and style.

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
