Property 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 (check out visitfauquier.com for our local events). Great home-away-from-home for church, special activity groups (scrapbookers, quilters), corporate events, wine tasters (we have unique trolley transportation for more fun, and available for your wine tours/birthday/wedding celebrations, etc.), special interest groups (homesteaders, book clubs), family reunions, 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 $45.00 for each guest) and so much more!

SUMMER MID-WEEK SPECIALS - End of the Summer discounts may be available for last minute rentals from Monday through Thursday nights; 599.00/night (2 night minimum) for up to 24 guests (for new rentals only). Flee the city heat and come enjoy lounging around the pool for a few days.

SMALL GATHERINGS (50 MAX.) Birthday/anniversary parties, weddings, retreats, business meetings with seating for 50 guests ( tables and chairs available - small event fee may be charged) by our newly designed and built "Event Overlook." It is located in the woods but next to the front porch of the Farmhouse and has a beautiful panoramic view of the whole farm; such a gorgeous place for a small, country wedding or birthday party!

Ask us about our CHARMING COUNTRY COTTAGE (VRBO.com #565710) that accomodates an additional 12 guests or the ELEGANT VICTORIAN ( VRBO.com #725730) with a theater room and hot tub to enjoy, for up to 18 guests and all located on our 20 acre farm. When all houses are rented by the same group, we can accommodate up to 56 guests comfortably. The game room and pool at the Farmhouse may be used by guests only when the same group rents 2 or 3 homes.

SHOPPING - We are 45 minutes away from Potomac Mills, one of the largest indoor shopping malls on the East coast. You will enjoy the 1/2 mile adventure of discovering new/unique stores and finding great prices too.

WINE TOURS - Friends of ours have a Trolley Transport Service and would be delighted to suggest some of the favorite vineyards (22 in our area) that you could visit to sample their great wines. Contact www.TrollyForHire.com or 540-349-0035.

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.

We can suggest other amenities such as babysitting, horse boarding, and catering.

Bring your horses. They can graze in the pasture or overnight in the barn. Next day, enjoy riding through the woods along the river or in the riding ring.

Caretaker lives in a separate location on the property for your convenience.

IDEAL LOCATION

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.

SPECIAL ACTIVITIES

We have now added skeet shooting to our activities for bachelor parties, corporate groups, family reunions, etc. here on the Farm for guests age 16 and up. The cost is 45.00/person for 25 rounds (12 gauge shotgun), ear protection and an event coordinator/instructor.

SPECIAL EVENTS

If you would like to have an intimate event on the Farm, we welcome groups of 50 (maximum). We have recently created a country party setting on the bluff of the pine forest that overlooks the pond and the entire Farm. There are picnic tables and additional seating for up to 50 guests. I'm sorry, but we can not accommodate tents or portable toilets on the property, however, this small event will allow guests to comfortably function and flow in the Farmhouse incase of inclement weather. Our fee for your special event is 500.00 for up to 5 hours.

 

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 (9), chickens, and organic vegetables and teach homesteading classes (food/water/fuel storage, gardening, dehydrating food, canning, grinding wheat/baking bread, cheese making, raising chickens, sooo much more!). 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. Blessings to you ~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 (the Cottage), we shouted "this is it!" Pastures, rolling hills, forest, ponds, creek, and barns; every window displayed this glorious creation. We were finally home!

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Delightful amenities include: large private swimming 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 - catch and eat policy and no license needed), hiking along Cedar Run River, fire circle, volleyball, basketball, catering, babysitting, horse boarding available. We are a pet friendly home so bring your furry family members. We now offer skeet shooting for guests age 16 and older. Ask us about it. 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. We also have our VICTORIAN which sleeps 18 guests. This beautiful addition to the Farm, has a theater room and a hot tub to enjoy. It will be available on September 1, 2015. Please see VRBO.com/725730 for more details.
