  • Wonderful Easter Weekend

    "We just spent a delightful Easter weekend at Fancy Fox farm. The place was perfect for 3 grandparents, 2 parents and one 9 year old boy. The property has many diversions, including exciting playground equipment for little ones & also a trampoline. There are opportunities for campfires, gator rides & hiking trails & of course the horses. For our young man however the only thing that mattered was the fishing lake from which he caught several fish that he fixed for supper. He was very proud of his bass. The property is beautiful & well maintained. All the flowering trees were in bloom including 2 huge old crabapple trees in wonderful pink blossoms. The house was very clean with comfortable beds & quality linens. The kitchen was well equipped with all basic utensils. The owner is very outgoing, friendly & accommodating. This is a place for relaxing. It is also near to enough attractions to keep you busy with day trips if you want to leave the farm for awhile. Highly recommended for multiple age groups. Although the first floor is accessible once you are inside, all entrances have at least one step, so would not work well for wheelchair bound people. Also the property is rolling hills, which if you are out of shape like we are, may cause some shortness of breath when walking."

  • LOVE THE COTTAGE. VERY CHARMING!

    "My wife and fiance loved the warmth and coziness of the Cottage. The neighborhood is definitely upper-class and well-maintained. This is a wonderful 'ROMANTIC' place for two. The convenience of stores; metro and having mostly everything very close is a BIG PLUS! The owner takes great 'care' in maintaining the Cottage (inside and out). CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN! The downstairs kitchen and outside beautiful patio, is a perfect way to begin your day with coffee and a meal before heading out to DC for sightseeing. We HIGHLY recommend the Cottage and we will return!"
