Front Royal cottage description

Stunningly Designed Cottage on a private corner of a historic 100 acre farm. Situated on a scenic bluff overlooking the legendary Shenandoah River and Blue Ridge Mountains this 'cottage' has a stone fireplace and wood beamed ceilings through the main floor. In addition to three covered porches (including one with a Hot Tub) there is a 34' second floor deck overlooking the river. At river level there is a multi-level deck and 30' floating dock right on the water. Perfect for boating fishing, swimming or just enjoying the sun and water. Less than one hour from the Washington Beltway and Dulles Airport. There are numerous restaurants, shops, golf courses, wineries, National Parks (Skyline Drive, Shenandoah National Park, George Washington National Forest), hiking trails (Appalachian Trail), battlefields etc are literally ten to twenty minutes away. Then, of course- best of all, your own piece the Shenandoah River!
Please Note: Location Map shows gate location and not the house. The Private Driveway is a quarter mile long!

To quote a renter from Texas... ' We have been from Maine to New Mexico and this is the best we property have ever stayed in!

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About: My wife Angelique and I bought this historic property from a family that had owned it for 155 years! This once in a lifetime chance (several lifetimes actually) was simply too much to miss. With such a spectacular riverfront location, our goal was to create the most memorable vacation retreat in the Shenandoah Valley. After years of planning and design for a river cottage, to compliment the existing renovated farmhouse (a ten minute walk away through the woods and rolling fields), the results are yours to enjoy. One of our sons Sean took over online reservations in 2012 but dad Frank is still the 'boots on the ground' and will be on the other end of the phone if you call. Our family never tires of it and it is our joy to share it with you.

                              Why Front Royal:
                              After 30 years of living on the Shenandoah River, enjoying it's beauty and recreational possibilities, we were still awestruck by the sheer magnitude and combination of nature's bounty possessed by this farm...thousands of feet of River Front, sweeping views of the Blue Ridge Mountains, acres of rolling hills and woods, sunrises, sunsets...the list goes on and on.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              'Peacefulness without loneliness' is an old Irish expression that captures the private wooded riverside retreat yet convenience of so many attractions, shops and restaurants nearby to the River Overlook Cottage at Rolling River Farm.
