- This is our beloved home, and we\'ve worked incredibly hard to make it warm, clean, cozy, comfortable and modern while retaining everything we love about the charm and age of Luray’s beautiful old houses. We hope you love your experience! We expect everyone who stays here to treat The Farmhouse with respect. We don’t love a long list of rules, but we have to have them anyway just in case there is the rare instance that someone decides to engage in Bad Things: 1. SMOKING. NO SMOKING or FIRE OF ANY SORT INSIDE. If you smoke outside, please dispose of your butts in the outside cans by the back grey shed. Also, smoking causes cancer. Just sayin\\\'. 2. SHOES. Please remove your shoes inside on the slate tile entrance (that’s why it’s there). Our yard and our street is often wet and muddy, and plus it's just more comfortable to be in your socks or slippers. 3. DOORS & WINDOWS. Please make sure the doors and windows are locked when you leave the house. Electronic locks make that super simple, just press the lock button. Since we have central AC & Heat for you to enjoy a comfortable temperature, please don’t keep the doors and windows open. 4. MUSIC. No loud music. Even though our nearest neighbor is a quarter mile over, music easily echos trough the valley and down the road. They will call the law if they hear you blaring music. 5. NO PARTIES. No more then 8 people max are allowed in the house at any time unless prior arrangements have been made with the owners, and written consent is given. 6. FOOD - Lots of cooking stuff is located in the kitchen. Please help yourself to useful spices, oil etc. IF you found you used large amounts of things please replace them. Pay it forward, and all that. Be nice, karma, etc. 7. FOOD CONSUMPTION. We ask that people try to eat in the kitchen/dining room or on the patio/deck. This has mainly to do with people with children. We love kids, but they tend to get messy. Please don’t let the kids eat all over the house. Thanks! 8. BOOKS MAGAZINES. Please enjoy the reading material, but leave them for the next guest. 9. PETS. We love animals. All we ask is that you contact us first so we can discuss what kind of pet you'll be bringing and go over some ground rules. 10. NO DAILY MAID SERVICE – Linens and bath towels (plus extras) are included, daily maid service is not included. 11. STEALING. We are the cleaning service and we take inventory of everything in the house after each guest leaves. If you are caught stealing anything whatsoever, you lose your deposit. 12. FALSIFIED RESERVATIONS – Any reservation obtained under false pretense will be subject to forfeiture of advance payment, deposit and/or rental money, and the party will not be permitted to check-in. This includes false or misleading statements about the age and/or number of guests who will be staying at the property. 14. TRASH – We take the trash and recycling to the transfer station every week. If the trash is piling up because you are here for an extended stay, please let us know.
About Ryan Hodson, Jay Dedman
We are video documentarians. Since we live in a rural area, we travel often for work. We love staying in neighborhoods rather than stuffy hotels while on these work trips. And we like to cook! So our experience staying in other people's rentals has taught us what we expect to have a comfortable time.
Why Ryan Hodson, Jay Dedman chose Luray
We have lovingly rehabbed this 1850s solid brick farmhouse and turned it into a modern home. The bricks were constructed on the property right after the Civil War. The house in on a secluded 2 acres with plenty of trees and views. The remodeled farmhouse has been updated with all the modern conveniences, including central AC, heat and high speed wifi. We spent three years hand picking all the furniture and artwork so you will feel at home. We live ten minutes away so can help you with whatever you need.
What makes this farmhouse unique
Even in rural America, is often difficult to find a property that doesn't have other homes close by. We fell in love with the farmhouse because it's nestled in a secluded two acres. You can sit outside on the long covered porch and watch the different species of birds in the quiet. If you wake up early enough, you can even watch the family of deer that graze in our yard. At night, you're in one of the spots of the county that has almost no light pollution. The stars are as clear as we've seen. We also fell in love with the Post Civil War construction of the farmhouse. The walls are three courses thick with bricks that were made on the property in the 1850s. When we remodeled, we pulled up all the old flooring to discover the original heartwood pine planks still existed. After refinishing the floor, the wood has a gorgeous look that cannot be bought. The master bedroom is our favorite part of the house because it has a huge king size bed plus an entire suite with two leather couches, large flat screen TV, wifi, and a library. You could stay all weekend and never leave this room. But if you do decide to take a stroll, Lake Arrowhead is just a 5 minute walk down the gravel road. You can go swim for free, or use the "beach area" with a lifeguard for a small fee. You can also rent paddle boast or canoes. We like to take a long walk around the lake in the evening. When you need some action, you can drive into town and eat in one of the restaurants. Our movie is a local attraction with it's unique themed rooms.
