Warrenton farmhouse description

This charming and spacious home on our 20 acre wooded homestead has WONDERFUL VIEWS from every window. Hidden from town, yet only a mile stroll to shopping and the heart of Old Town Warrenton. Great home-away-from-home for church, special activity (scrapbookers, quilters), corporate events, special interest (homesteaders, book clubs) groups, family reunions, and bridal parties and out of town wedding guests. Delightful amenities include a large private fenced-in pool, 1200 sq. ft. spacious media/meeting/play room with games galore, ping-pong, air hockey, foos ball & pool. Outdoor fun includes a fully stocked pond for fishing (poles available), firepit, volleyball, basketball, regulation horseshoe pits, hiking, skeet shooting (additional fee of $50.00 for each guest) and so much more!

We can also suggest many other added bonuses such as babysitting, horse boarding, and catering.

Ask us about our ELEGANT COUNTRY COTTAGE on Hidden Hollow Farm that accomodates an additional 12 guests. Take a look at VRBO.com/565710. When both houses are rented by the same group, we can accommodate up to 38 guests comfortably. The game room and pool at the Farmhouse may be used by guests when the same group rents both homes.

Our goal is to insure that your stay on our farm is everything you expected it to be, and we would like to help you create great memories of your visit through family photos. We have owned a wedding/portrait photography studio for 35 years, currently located on Main St. in Old Town, Warrenton. If you would like us to a complimentary portrait sitting for your family, church or corporate group during your visit, you can visit our web site at www.sonshinepictures.com and let us know if you’d like to find an agreed upon time for your groups photo shoot here on the Farm. We will also send you an email just prior to your arrival as a reminder. You might enjoy getting creative and color coordinate your clothes together! Like blue jeans or kackies & white shirts or red plaids! We then place all of the photos on a gallery site for you to view when you arrive home from your visit.

                      Car: Necessary

                      Hidden Hollow Farm is nestled between great sight-seeing of the Nations Capital and the adventures in hiking and backpacking on Skyline Drive. This farm has also been called 'Almost Heaven' due to the ideal home-away-from-home charming FARMHOUSE (24-26 GUESTS) & COTTAGE (12 GUESTS FOR A TOTAL OF 36-38 GUESTS) and the harmony of ponds, woods, rolling hills, and homestead atmosphere. Great views from every window! Here in horse/wine country, we have over 20 wineries to tour, local farm markets to shop at, and Old Town Warrenton to discover.

                      Check out our area website out here in horse/wine country....visitfauquier.com. It will be helpful in planning your visit.

                      We have now added skeet shooting to our activities here on the Farm for guests age 16 and up. The cost is 50.00/person for 25 rounds (12 gauge shotgun), ear protection and an event coordinator/instructor.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1989

                      About the owner: Both originally from Jersey, we headed south to Northern Virginia, where Wally worked as an air traffic controller and together we ministered as youth pastors as we raised our family. After a fire destroyed our home in Alexandria, we moved West to Warrenton in 1989, and used our skills to design our custom built home on this 20 acre farm. What a great place to raise our children. Today, we are raising grandchildren, chickens, and organic vegetables and our homesteading classes (food/water/fuel storage, gardening, dehydrating food, canning, grinding wheat/baking bread, cheese making, raising chickens, sooo much more!) begin in the Spring and continue until Fall. (Invite a group of your friends together and rent the Farmhouse for the weekend, and I'll be glad to teach the day-long class for you) We so enjoy extending our hospitality to folks who visit the area and we know you will be refreshed and restored when you come for a restful stay. A common expression around here is 'it's not Heaven, but it's a good place to wait.' Please let us know how we can serve you better. Wally and Pat Smith

                      Why the Owner Chose Warrenton:
                      We looked at nothing less then 100 country properties over a year. Tired and overwhelmed, this was our last farm to consider. Just coming down the hollow, without even seeing the original house, we shouted 'this is it!' Pastures, rolling hills, forest, pond, creek, and barn; every window displayed this glorious creation. We were finally home.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                      Delightful amenities include: large private pool with towels provided, giganic family play room with HDTV, WIFI, pool, gaming table, ping pong, air hockey, foos ball, board games, toys, etc., fully stocked pond (fishing poles provided), hiking along Cedar Run River, fire circle, volleyball, basketball, catering, babysitting, horse boarding available. We are a pet friendly home. We now offer skeet shooting for guests age 16 and older. If you are planning a retreat, reunion or corporate gathering with more than 24 guests, please remember that we have a elegant country COTTAGE located on the farm that can sleep an additional 12 guests...in classic country style! See VRBO.com/565710 for the description of the COTTAGE.
