About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Gorgeous fall/winter getaway! A one-hour drive from Washington, D.C. and 45 minutes from Dulles International Airport, Magnolia Hill is a charming and lovingly maintained farmhouse dating back to 1880.

Nestled into the rolling hills of Virginia’s horse, wine and hunt country, the house is a short distance from 18th century village of Middleburg, which CNN recently listed as one of the world's 'Ten Romantic Destinations You Should Know About'.

Highlights include:

- 50 wineries within a ~60 mile radius

- Local farmers markets, county fairs, drive-in movies, twilight polo, pick-your-own, & more

- Easy access to Sky Meadows and Shenandoah State Park

- Summer sports camp for kids at nearby Salamander Resort

- Horseback riding, riding lessons, and guided trails

- Miles of scenic byways perfect for biking, jogging, and/or drives

- Boutiques and antique shopping in area towns

- A stay in a beautiful, bright, and spacious home in historic Rectortown

Soak in the charm of country life from the covered front porch of Magnolia Hill, which gives way to picturesque views of a 40-foot magnolia tree and a rambling creek that crosses the front of the property. In warmer months fire up the barbeque grill and host a garden party in the large backyard, where you can watch the sun set behind an abandoned silo, and both horses and cows that graze across the ridge of the adjacent property. In cooler months, roast marshmallows over an outdoor fire pit or strike up a fire and settle in by the hearth of one of the home’s two indoor working fireplaces.

The 2,176 square foot, sundrenched, yellow stucco home offers three comfortable and inviting bedrooms: a master with a queen bed, a guest room with a queen bed, and a second guest room with two twin beds. There are two and a half bathrooms; spacious kitchen, dining and living rooms; and a cozy den. Random plank hardwood floors dating back to the early-mid 20th century, antique furnishings, and a second staircase built as part of a two-story rear wing extension, lend extra character to the home.

The towns of Middleburg, Upperville and The Plains, which offer a variety of farm-to-table restaurants, high end shops, local butchers, the National Sporting Library & Museum, and a world-class spa facility, all are within and a 15-20 minute drive. Dozens of other area attractions, including Sky Meadows State Park and Shenandoah State Park, are a 20-30 minute driving distance away.

For lovers of the outdoors, the area offers spectacular vistas of rolling farmland and vineyards from meandering country roads—perfect for biking or afternoon drives. Nature enthusiasts can spot one of dozens of bird types, as well as deer, rabbit, fox and other animals; hike some of the region’s best trails in Shenandoah; or enjoy the ever-changing symphony of wild flowers that spring up alongside the road in the spring and summer.

History buffs will enjoy learning about the historic district of Rectortown, in which the house sits. The Manassas Gap Railroad stop that John Rector, after whom Rectortown was named, was influential in creating still carries cargo trains by less than a quarter of a mile down the road. The old Rectortown railroad storehouse, visible from the stone bridge giving access to the property, is one of the many Civil War historic landmarks in the area.

A list of links to area restaurants, attractions and events—including twilight polo matches, horse shows, vineyards offering dinner and wine pairings, and seasonal festivals and fairs—is available to renters upon request.

The house has an HD flat screen TV, satellite TV with 120 channels, a DVD player, and wireless internet suitable for emailing and basic web browsing. The cozy den with working fireplace also offers books available for use at the house. Don't see anything you like there? Take a walk to the Rectortown Post Office where you'll find a Little Free Library with additional books for borrowing.

Rates, security deposit, and cleaning fee information follow. The house can sleep a maximum of six guests. Pets are not allowed without advance permission.

Other area activities include:

- Pev's Paintball (walk-on reservations on Saturdays & Sundays)

- Big Dog Pots Pottery Studio (classes include ceramics and glass)

- Sky Meadows State Park (10 miles bridle trails, 24 miles hiking trails, 9 miles biking trails, freshwater fishing)

- Middleburg Community Farmers Market (daily, 8am-12pm)

- Cooking classes, afternoon tea, & activities for kids at nearby Salamander Resort

- Spa treatments (including 20% off for 'locals' on weekdays) at Salamander Resort

About Adele Waugaman

As native Washingtonians, my husband and I have a deep appreciation for the beauty and serenity of the country surrounding the DC suburbs. We love escaping to this bucolic retreat for fresh air, expansive vistas, delicious local food, and the slower pace of country living.

Adele Waugaman purchased this farmhouse in 2013

Why Adele Waugaman chose Virginia

Few houses exhibit the unique charm this property has. The home's original details dating back to the turn of the 19th century together with a substantial rear wing expansion make for a beautiful and spacious property. Exposed hardwood beams, random plank hardwood floors, and both a front and a rear staircase add undeniable character. Windows facing north, east, and west mean that there's always a sunny place in the house. Stunning views from the house and its large, covered front port include: a log cabin across the street, a babbling brook at the foot of the property, and horses and cows grazing along the adjacent property.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Area attractions include: wineries, horse shows, hiking trails, pick-your-own farms, stunning Virginia byways perfect for cycling, farm-to-table restaurants, a multi-million dollar hotel & spa in neighboring Middleburg, boutiques, and more.

Family retreat

  • 4 of 5

Adele is a wonderful hostess and her home was just as described. Delaplane was a lovely spot for our Thanksgiving holiday. The kitchen was very functional & dining area was outstanding for entertaining. The fenced yard, quiet neighborhood & seeing a bald eagle in the field behind the home made this a special place. The only downside for our family was the "lack" of lounge space. We enjoy playing games & visiting and the living room had seating for 4 adults on comfy seats, whereas we had 6 of us vying for soft seating:). Adele was very accommodating when we had an issue with the tv.

Charming home!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home! We used this property for a Girls Getaway weekend as we toured some of the local wineries. It was lovely- very cozy and the owners went above and beyond to ensure we had a pleasant visit- they even recommended their favorite local restaurants and wineries which was a big help in our planning. The house is well stocked for guests with nice towels, kitchen items, etc.

I hesitate to write a review, because I want to keep this place to myself.

  • 5 of 5

As happily frenetic New Yorkers, my wife and I rarely take to the country for vacation. And when we find a great place we certainly don't write reviews on VRBO (this is my first time doing so). However, since staying at this wonderful home this summer, we've been telling all our friends about this little secret, and we are already planning to go back.

Gorgeous grounds, a simple yet stylish house with ample room for families (and a great porch), and close proximity to a wonderful village (with really exceptional dining options, even by NYC standards) and wineries make this place a true hidden gem that is unlikely to stay hidden for long. I know the "hidden gem" line sounds cliche, but spots like this are hard to find, and everything about this place from the location to the cool vintage french art on the walls exuded comfortable, informal elegance.

The property owners were extremely easy to deal with and professional, the house was immaculately kept and even more impressive than advertised. An ultra charming, ultra relaxing weekend getaway in a home that really feels like a home.

PS: Do bring an alarm with you. We'd planned to get up and do things each day but ended up sleeping more than 12 hours each night (which was both wonderful and shocking since I rarely sleep more than 5) -- it was the most relaxing getaway we'd had in years.

Gorgeous escape from the city

  • 5 of 5

I came here with my SO for a much-needed little getaway from daily life, and I don't have enough words to describe how much we loved it. The house itself is gorgeous, very spacious with a lot of amenities, and the whole place is warmly decorated with a classic touch. The best part, however, is the land that surrounds it. The entire property and the nearby areas are nothing short of magical, especially at sunset, and offer a perfect opportunity to simultaneously escape and reconnect. There are scenic drives for miles around, as well as wineries, orchards, and farm/ranch properties within driving distance. Adele herself is a gracious and generous hostess who made sure we had everything we needed while there. I can't recommend it enough! Thank you for such a memorable experience, Adele!

Gorgeous getaway

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed here with family & friends over three weekends now -- the house and location are both gorgeous. Set amid rolling hills in horse country, with cows and horses that sidle up to the backyard fence, and a spectacular sunset from the backyard. The house is old-world rustic with modern comforts, spacious bright kitchen for large meal prep, cozy living room with fireplace, huge porch out front for morning coffee and lounging, and picturesque backyard for BBQ'ing and dinners under the stars. Near the charming shops and restaurants of Middleburg. You'll feel much farther than 90 minutes outside of DC. Thank you Adele for all the special touches that make staying here so wonderful!

We loved our time in your home! Plenty of room. Peaceful environment. Great place to reconnect as a family. We had perfect access to wineries and restaurants. I would recommend your home to those who want a lovely place to enjoy the outside & escape the temptations and distractions of technology.

Thank you Adele, for sharing your beautiful home with us!
