The Brookcliffe Farm Guest House, sited on a wooded ridge overlooking Beaverdam Creek and the Blue Ridge Mtns., is part of a 30 acre estate located in the heart of VA Hunt Country. This secluded, BR, 2 very large full bathrooms, 3,200 sq. ft. stone and clapboard home has two large flagstone terraces (one under roof and the other pool side with a large pergola); a 20'x40' inground heated swimming pool open early May through Labor Day weekend; a new outdoor Jacuzzi 6-person hot tub; and attached garage parking for 1 vehicle (additional covered parking available). A recent renovation included an updated galley kitchen and two full bathrooms, CAC installation, custom lighting, a LR ceiling fan, refinished heart of pine hardwood floors and professionally designed/installed landscaping. There are two bedrooms upstairs in addition to a very comfortable and private sleep sofa in the sun room. Downstairs you will find four more bedrooms, one with a fireplace and sitting area. The bedrooms share access to a large, recently renovated shower and vanity room.
Our farm is located on scenic Foxcroft Rd. bordering the Historic Beaverdam Creek District. The guest house is 5.5 miles northwest of Middleburg, 4 miles from Upperville, 50 miles west of Washington, D.C. and 30 miles east of the Blue Ridge Mtns. We're perfectly located for guests interested in a variety of activities, such as attending family weddings, touring the local vineyards, cycling, fox hunting, polo, steeplechase races (we're 5 min. from Glenwood Park), hiking the Appalachian Trail, fine dining and shopping in historic Middleburg, touring nearby Civil War battlefields and visiting the Virginia State Arboretum just 30 minutes away. The majority of our bookings have been for overflow accommodations for wedding parties. Everyone has found it extremely convenient to be able to have up to 13 family members stay together in the comfort of our home and in such close proximity to the wedding related events. We are a 10 minute drive to the following venues: The Goodstone Inn; The Salamander Resort & Spa; Buchanan Hall; Trinity Episcopal Church. We are within 30 minutes of more that 50 wineries, ciders and breweries which are also popular destinations for our guests.
Brookcliffe is an ideal getaway for guests who enjoy the country life for a long weekend or an extended stay. You're welcome to accompany us as we do our daily chores with our Border Collies, Fay and Finn, feeding and caring for our two retired horses in the barn, filling the bird feeders and working in our vegetable gardens. The heated pool is a true delight, particularly swimming at night under the stars with the twinkly lights in the pergola to guide you back indoors. The hot tub is open year round and is a great way to relax in the evening listening to the Barred Owls along Beaverdam Creek, spotting fox in the pasture and watching deer visiting the salt lick under the apple tree.
We've found the house to be very comfortable for the senior members of our family too. Both levels are entirely accessible without any steps, including the short walk from the car. Both showers are step-in rather than tubs for easy access and there is a teak bench available for the large shower upstairs for anyone who may need it. This arrangement can be difficult to find in a country setting.
