About the property

7 Br; Pool; Game Rm, Great Views; with Victorian/Cottage = 58 guest

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 groups (scrapbookers, quilters), corporate events, wine tasters (22 vineyards close by) (we have unique trolley transportation here in town 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; bring your own worms!), firepit, volleyball, basketball, regulation horseshoe pits, hiking, and so much more!

We have many trails along the river and our guests are raving about the "Riverwalk" - bring your old sneakers or water shoes for a great 1 mile hike up and down "in" the river and through the woods; great for you to enjoy with your friends and family.

SMALL 4 HOUR EVENT- up to 40 total guests - $300.00

Any gathering over the stated occupancy of 26 guests such as birthday parties, anniversaries, rehearsal dinners, reunions, etc. No more than 40 guests total permitted, which includes the 26 guests staying in the Farmhouse. If your event takes place outdoors, loud music must stop at 10:00 PM for the comfort of other guests on the Farm. This fee does not include use of the Event Overlook.

LARGE 6 HOUR EVENT - $2000.00

For gatherings up to 60 guests total, including the guests staying in the Farmhouse (the Victorian and Cottage). This fee includes:

Use of the Event Overlook with 10 rustic benches that seat 60 guests, overhead party lights and 10 picnic tables (30” x 72”) which seat 6+ guests and additional parking. There is plenty of space in the Farmhouse for your invited guests in case of inclement weather. Please contact us if you would like to come visit to view the Event Overlook. Once you have secured a confirmed reservation for the Farmhouse through VRBO or Homeway, you will be able to contact us directly to make arrangements for your event.

Ask us about our ELEGANT VICTORIAN on Hidden Hollow Farm with a theater room and hot tub to enjoy, for up to 18 guests or the COTTAGE for smaller groups of 14. Both are located privately but within walking distance of the Farmhouse. When all houses are rented by the same group, we can accommodate up to 58 guests comfortably. This is a great place for your small event for 60 guests; all staying right here on the Farm together.

SHOPPING - We are 45 minutes away from Potomac Mills Outlet Mall, one of the largest indoor shopping malls on the East coast. You will enjoy the one 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.

ABSOLUTELY NO BUSES allowed on the farm (no place to turn around). Our suggestion would be to drive to the end of our farm and then parking at Giant Food Store where the bus can meet you. The store is about a 1/2 mile away and an easy walk or ride.

Our Caretakers live in a separate/secluded location on the farm for your convenience.

About Wally & Pat Smith

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

Wally & Pat Smith purchased this farmhouse in 1989

Why Wally & Pat Smith 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!

What makes this farmhouse unique

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.

Fabulous house, great owner

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautiful and fully stocked. Our large group rented this house, in addition to one more on the estate. Wally was very attentive to our needs. The pool was perfect for our stay. We hope to return again.

A Great Time!

  • 5 of 5

Our little party was a great time at the Hidden Hollow Farmhouse. We had everything we needed and the house had plenty of space to host everyone comfortably. The location is great, secluded and scenic. Our dog loved running around on the spacious grounds. To top it off, the weather was perfect, so we all had such a great time at the pool. Wally and Pat were also very accommodating and quick to respond to any of our needs. Everyone had nothing but great things to say. We would definitely recommend this stay.

The perfect group getaway spot!

  • 5 of 5

The Hidden Hollow Farmhouse is absolutely gorgeous. It feels like you are in a private retreat center in the forest, but in reality you are so close to town with all of the conveniences that brings. My 13 girlfriends and I stayed there for my bachelorette weekend, and we had the best time. We went to the Pearmund Cellars winery one evening, visited the nearby fantastic Salamander Resort Spa, and went to dinner in Warrenton at Denim and Pearls for our last night. We also just enjoyed cooking, lounging, and catching up in the beautiful farmhouse, as well as exploring the grounds, enjoying the amazing pool, and being outdoors. It was the most picturesque setting for a relaxing weekend. There was more than enough space without it feeling empty with 14 of us there. It was beyond ideal. You can definitely fit up to the max, but I would not discount it as an option if you have fewer people in the party.

Wally and Pat were amazing to work with, too! They answered our questions, gave us recommendations, wrote us a welcome sign, and were available to provide assistance when we needed it. They are so sweet - it could not have been a smoother process to book with them! You can tell they take very good care of the place, and it feels like a cozy spacious home. My local friends and I definitely want to go back! It was even more beautiful than the pictures show, and I would recommend this spot to anyone. So happy we chose the farmhouse - it was perfect. Thanks so much, Wally and Pat!!

Amazing Tribute Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Amazing house. Beautiful game room. Lots of room so that no one felt cramped. If you wanted to cook, there was nothing missing. We needed help they called us back right away. We left something behind and they were gracious enough to mail it back to us. I would definitly recommend this venue to any one with a large party. There is a food store just one mile away. Again amazing place!!!!!!!!

Great spot for a work retreat!

  • 5 of 5

The organization that I work for hosted our work retreat at this location! We had 20+ people and everybody had nothing but kind words about the venue choice. It was spacious, clean, lots of pots and pans, and fit our needs nicely!

Perfect Holiday Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at Hidden Hollow Farm over Thanksgiving. Location was perfect- close to civilization- but once you get on the property- privacy abounds. Wally and Pat were great! Recommended caterers, brought firepit firewood every day, took family photographs- always responsive!

The house was awesome as well. The kids (and adults) loved the rec room- it had everything. The beds were some of the most comfortable ones we have seen at any rental. Too many amenities to list:Keurig, tree swing, fireplace, entertainment system, basketball hoop, etc.

The house was large enough for everyone to spread out- but well-equipped for meal time and after dinner gatherings. The house was clean- it is always a good start to be greeted by a clean house!

The farm is beautiful- we hiked every day- plenty of trails. Our dogs also loved the space to roam and run.

Went to historic Warrenton (a 2 minute drive) which was nice- but we did not venture off the farm- there was just too much to do there.

Even though we came in the fall-and I was a little worried that we would be stuck inside and the kids would be "bored"- there was plenty to do inside the house. We are looking forward to going back during the summer to take advantage of the pool and more outdoor activities.

All of my family members from all over the east coast are still talking about how much fun it was.

I would highly recommend this place- the house and location are great- and there are probably plenty of those on VRBO- but the owners attentiveness and little touches puts this place at the top.

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 (up to 26 GUESTS) & VICTORIAN #725730(up to 18 GUESTS) and COTTAGE #989047 ( up to 14 guests) for up to 58 guests if you rent the three homes. The harmony of ponds, woods, rolling hills, and homestead atmosphere make this a wonderful place to visit. There are great views from every window! Everyone will enjoy the hiking trails along the river and through the woods. Also, here in horse/wine country, we have over 22 wineries to tour, local farm markets to shop at, and Old Town Warrenton to discover.


If you would like to have an intimate event on the Farm, we welcome groups of 60 (maximum). We have recently created a country event 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 60 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 in case of inclement weather. Our fee for your special event is 1800.00 for up to 6 hours up to 10 pm in the evening. Picnic tables, party lights and additional parking are included.

We have a party fee of 250.00 for rehearsal dinners, birthday parties, etc. for any additional guests over the 26 guests staying in the Farmhouse but not to exceed 14 extra people coming from off of the Farm or a total of 40 guests.
