Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This stately, 3 bedroom and 3 baths, home rests on the lush 82 acre Whiffletree Farm. The farm and home provide a serene setting rich in history, agriculture, and natural beauty. Guests can enjoy the sense of being far from the busyness of city/suburban life, yet only 2 miles away from Old Town Warrenton, Virginia. Whiffletree Farm also allows guests the opportunity to delve into agro-tourism: gain exposure to sustainable farming, study resources (videos, books, articles) provided in home library, and purchase poultry, milk, eggs etc. from the farm store run by the farmers themselves, Jesse and Liz Straight.

History: For at least 80 years of the 20th century Whiffletree Farm was dedicated to horses and specifically, fox hunting. The Warrenton Hunt still rides the property and the hunting hounds (50-60) are kenneled next door. Celebrities like John and Jacquelin Kennedy and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor attended cocktail parties at Whiffletree as part of the social scene surrounding the 'Hunt.'

Agriculture: The farmers, Jesse and Liz Straight, raise pastured broiler chickens (and turkeys), free-foraging pork, grass-finished beef and pastured laying hens. Their farming method of using intensive rotation grazing creates a happy and healthy environment for the animals, improves the fertility of the land and provides more nutritious food for customers . Their cattle are 100% grass fed and their turkeys, broiler chickens, pigs, and laying hens are raised on fresh pasture, non-GMO feed, no antibiotics, no chemicals on the ground, and no toxic chemical washes when they are processed. All this work, precision and care, not only help keep animals, the earth and people healthier it also results in distinctively rich tasting food.

Natural beauty: There are lovely walks about the farm, near the stream or down by Great Run and bike rides along the lane. And just a stone’s throw away guests will find a variety of the many great things Virginia’s rolling hills and vibrant culture has to offer: the historic town of Warrenton (2 miles), the storied battlefields of Culpeper and Manansas (15 miles), Virginia’s great wine trails- vinards/wineries- (8 miles), the Blue Ridge Mountains and Skyline Drive (24 miles), the Town of Little Washington with it's famous Inn (17 miles), the Ashby Inn in Paris, Va.(20miles) and many more sites.

And lastly, in case hikes, bike rides and walks don’t satisfy your exercise needs, Warrenton has a large aquatic center with a competition pool, hot tub, water park with slides and workout facilities. Golf courses, a tennis club and a yoga studio are also just within a 10 minute drive. But don't overbook yourselves. The house, the farm and the grounds are special.

Whiffletree manor was everything we were anticipating and more.

  • 5 of 5

We were in Virginia for our sons wedding in Warrenton. Whiffletree Manor was a wonderful place to stay, only a short drive from the wedding venue. Everything was lovely for our stay, and the manor made a great place to meet up and hang out between events. We made use of the hot tub most nights. Plenty of room for our party of six and anyone else that came to visit. Loved the antique feel and the decor was nice. The property had enough modern updates to make it comfortable without losing its historical charm. Spectacular views of the farm made morning coffee something special each day. We had a minor issue with the faucet in the kitchen, but I called Chase and it was quickly taken care of. We would definitely choose Whiffletree manor if we were to return to Warrenton.

Perfect place for a quick family get away

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Whiffletree Manor for 4 days over the 4th of July holiday. There were three kids under the age of four and they were obsessed with the animals on the farm. The house was wonderful. We really enjoyed the kitchen and the welcome basket with bread, coffee and sausage was a very special touch. There was plenty of space for us in the upstairs bedrooms and bathrooms. Everything was very clean when we arrived. We visited the farm store a couple times and had some lovely chats with the family that owns the farm. When we needed activities we went for walks in the creek, went to visit the chicks in the barn or drove into town. The Warrenton aquatic center has a great kids swim area and an outdoor playground. If you're looking for a lovely house in a quiet location to spend some quality time with family and friends this is the place!

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here with our 5 little kids. This was hands down our favorite vacation! The kids loved exploring the farm, swimming in the creek and riding bikes up and down the long drive. The house was beautiful and very well equipped with everything we could possibly need. We enjoyed day trips to D.C., museums and battlefields. Our favorite part was meeting the kind people who work the farm and the owners of the property. Thanks for a great vacation!

Elegant but also fun for kids!

  • 5 of 5

The house was so beautiful, and we were pleasantly surprised to see a few items from the working farm in our fridge including fresh sausage and eggs! Breakfast was awesome. My son had a great time watching the animals on the farm from our porch. I was worried that the animals might wake us up in the morning but they were far enough away to not be a bother. Having a pack and play in the house also made it so easy to travel as a family. I would definitely recommend this rental to others. We had a blast!

My daughter and her friends stayed here in preparation for her wedding. Words cannot express how special this setting was for everyone. Breathtaking experience! To be on a working farm in such a lovely home was a combination that was simply exquisite. Thank you for making this possible!
