The traditional Virginia stucco farmhouse has been thoughtfully renewed, restored and redecorated to preserve and enhance its charms. To quote a recent visitor from Maryland: 'I can't tell you what a blast we had. We felt like we were in a movie. The house could not have been more perfect, it was warm and cozy and allowed us to spend quality family time together. My family loves history and this farm house and property is loaded with just that. We loved the way you have restored it allowing the history to show through yet updating it at the same time.'
All Season enjoyment--The wrap-around porch is the perfect place to watch sunsets or enjoy porch drinks. The brick terrace with its gas fire-pit is great for stargazing and conversation on cool evenings. Winter nights can be enjoyed by the fire sipping hot cocoa or reading a good book. Surrounded by over one hundred acres of rolling fields and woods with a river on three sides you can soak up the quiet and seclusion.
This is a private vacation retreat, very much family oriented, of a Christian family that contains religious art and images that reflect their faith. They invite you to come and explore or just get away from it all.
Front Royal has major several major national parks and attractions;Skyline Drive, Shenandoah River with local outfitters, Skyline Caverns, Shenandoah National Park, Appalachian Trail...

About Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly
They say that some opportunities are 'once in lifetime' but our family's opportunity to own this magical property was 'once in many lifetimes" as the farm was owned by the previous owners since before the Civil War. Being in construction and real estate for over 35 years I can say that if I had set off to find a property like this it would have been impossible...now it is our family's delight to share it with all of you.
Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly purchased this House in 2005
Why Frank O'Reilly and Sean O'Reilly chose Happy Creek
Ever dream of rolling hills of green surrounded by woodlands washed with ever changing light and cloud... with a river flowing around it all! Rolling River Farm is such a place. Some folks come and find it hard to leave. It is easy to get to (an hour from the Washington Beltway). It is literally within sight of Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest yet with easy access to restaurants, wineries, and shops.
What makes this House unique
Private waterfront destination with over 100 acres to roam and explore. Great for large family reunions with other Rolling River Holiday cottages within walking distance.

Lovely house in a beautiful setting
We spent an early spring weekend here to enjoy the natural beauty. A windstorm caused a water problem in the house but the owners were very attentive and worked hard until it was fixed. It's a comfortable, charming house, well set up for kids. We will be back to explore more in warm weather!
Wonderful getaway spot from the city noise
The house was very clean and had everything that was stated in the property intro. This will definitely be a repeat stay for my family and I. Thank you for making it feel like home and for allowing us to experience such an amazing stay.
Another fantastic weekend!
This house is our favorite spot. This was our third trip to the Farm House and we were pleasantly surprised by the addition of a beautiful new shower upstairs! Really a lovely place to stay. Five stars for sure.
We stayed here with our seven children for a family get away. We had a wonderful time. The house was great, and the kids really enjoyed the rec room and the beautiful grounds. The house was nice and warm (January stay), and very comfortable for a large family. Just wanted to mention the grill is a charcoal grill, so bring some charcoal. House feels away from it all, but is really close to walmart and shopping if you forget anything. Just a lovely place to reconnect with family or friends!
Beautiful setting and wonderful home!
We had two families visiting the area for Thanksgiving and we thoroughly enjoyed this lovely home! It was very well stocked, which was so helpful, since we had to do a bit of cooking for the holiday. The only suggestion I have is that there should be more blankets for the sleeper sofas. We had 3 people sleeping on sofas and only had 2 twin size blankets. The owner Sean was responsive and would have brought more but it was late and it was easier for us to borrow some from our friends nearby. It was a great retreat for 2 families - we never felt crowded and the beds were super comfortable. Great farmhouse feel, cozy, and cute decor. I highly recommend this property!
Lovely farmhouse and getaway
We absolutely loved our stay here - the house and all of the land around it is beautiful! We took lots of long walks, cooked a ton of food and drank up the lovely scenery. Our kids loved the game room which came in handy during the rain. The beds were comfortable, the linens and towels were excellent quality, the kitchen was well-stocked. This was our second time staying at a property owned by this family and they are wonderful to work with - responsive to questions and very kind and welcoming. We will definitely be back! Note for parents with small kids - there isn't a bath tub at this house.
