Overview

About the property

Three bedroom, 2 and half bath and located in a rural area.

The Dutch Barn is located about 2 miles East of Middleburg on a quiet country lane off State RT 50 and in the heart of Virginia's hunt country. The previous owner developed and used it as a small horse breeding operation and there are now 5 indoor stalls available to guests, as well as an indoor wash station), a run-in shed, paddock, exercise ring and riding area. It is an excellent place to bring your horse(s) as there is plenty of opportunity to ride on the property, the scenic rural road and beyond.

The family owned farm house is connected to the stables, covers about 3,000 square feet of living space including 3 bedrooms, a great room including living, dining and kitchen, TV room, exercise room, and a reading room. All are tastefully decorated with a worldwide collection of antiques, arts and crafts. There are 2 full bathrooms, one having an indoor Jaccuzzi bathtub as well as a half bath in the reading room. All rooms are comfortably outfitted with plenty of closet space. There are quality linens and towels and everything is neat and clean. A large deck with a 6 person's spa (open from spring into fall) overlooks the Bull Run Mountains. At the bottom of the property is a farm pond with a swing bench. There is lots of open space to feel relaxed and it is all quiet and restful. There also is plenty of parking space, including for horse trailers.

The town of Middleburg is very charming to explore. The town itself has some renowned restaurants including Red Fox Inn, Julien's, Oyster Bar, Sushi Bar and 2 Thai restaurants. The world class Salamander Resort and Spa is nearby as are several boutiques, antique stores and a Safeway supermarket. Also the National Sporting Library is here and worth a visit. Within a mile distance you will find a Polo field and a high end horse riding facility and historic Aldie Mill and Oat Lands are nearby . Many trips can be made to explore the hilly rustic country side with lots of beautiful properties where horses are kept. Other attractions are the many wineries, the State Arboretum of Virginia, the Skyline drive, Blue Ridge Mountains, and Luray Caverns.

Washington D.C. is about 45 miles away and Dulles International Airport about 20 miles or less than half an hour drive. Part of the Smithsonian Air and Space Museum (Udvar-Hazy Center) showing the larger planes and space vehicles (including space shuttle Discovery), is located near the airport.

WOW is the only word needed!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a wedding we had in Middleburg. We absolutely loved it. From the welcome drinks to the massive house, I want to move here. The landscaping and gardening makes me want to redo mine.

Stay here, you will love it!

Our stay at the Dutch Barn

  • 5 of 5

Our reason for a place to stay was for my mother’s funeral. While a sad time I was comforted by having my family with me in an incredibly beautiful environment. The home was exquisite. Sitting outside in the early morning catching the scent of the lavender bush; the birds concert, lush landscape and deer in the pasture watching me as the horses nearby spoke was just what my heart needed. Thank you for being such gracious hosts and giving us space yet still to know you were near if needed.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much and we are really pleased that the Dutch barn was for you the right place to be during this emotional event. Hope you will return and enjoy your stay from a different perspective.

Warm, welcoming, accomodating and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

My family had a lovely time this weekend. Jan and Ina were very accommodating, extremely helpful and very welcoming. I wish we had a longer time there to make use of the Jacuzzi and the property as a whole. Thanks for leaving the welcome gifts for us. You two were amazing.

Beautiful Spot Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were in area visiting a daughter and loved the area and the Dutch Barn. We cooked in most nights, used the hot tub, and played cards around the table at night. This home is so spacious with comfortable beds and living areas.

Lovely property and house in horse country.

  • 5 of 5

Our family gathered for a reunion at the Dutch Barn. Everything was in order and clean in the house, the view from the deck just beautiful and the owners nearby in case we had questions.

Would definitely rent again if in the area.
