Overview

About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This stately, 3 bedroom and 3 baths, home rests on the lush 82 acre Whiffletree Farm. The farm and home provide a serene setting rich in history, agriculture, and natural beauty. Guests can enjoy the sense of being far from the busyness of city/suburban life, yet only 2 miles away from Old Town Warrenton, Virginia. Whiffletree Farm also allows guests the opportunity to delve into agro-tourism: gain exposure to sustainable farming, study resources (videos, books, articles) provided in home library, and purchase poultry, milk, eggs etc. from the farm store run by the farmers themselves, Jesse and Liz Straight.

History: For at least 80 years of the 20th century Whiffletree Farm was dedicated to horses and specifically, fox hunting. The Warrenton Hunt still rides the property and the hunting hounds (50-60) are kenneled next door. Celebrities like John and Jacquelin Kennedy and the Duke and Duchess of Windsor attended cocktail parties at Whiffletree as part of the social scene surrounding the 'Hunt.'

Agriculture: The farmers, Jesse and Liz Straight, raise pastured broiler chickens (and turkeys), free-foraging pork, grass-finished beef and pastured laying hens. Their farming method of using intensive rotation grazing creates a happy and healthy environment for the animals, improves the fertility of the land and provides more nutritious food for customers . Their cattle are 100% grass fed and their turkeys, broiler chickens, pigs, and laying hens are raised on fresh pasture, non-GMO feed, no antibiotics, no chemicals on the ground, and no toxic chemical washes when they are processed. All this work, precision and care, not only help keep animals, the earth and people healthier it also results in distinctively rich tasting food.

Natural beauty: There are lovely walks about the farm, near the stream or down by Great Run and bike rides along the lane. And just a stone’s throw away guests will find a variety of the many great things Virginia’s rolling hills and vibrant culture has to offer: the historic town of Warrenton (2 miles), the storied battlefields of Culpeper and Manansas (15 miles), Virginia’s great wine trails- vinards/wineries- (8 miles), the Blue Ridge Mountains and Skyline Drive (24 miles), the Town of Little Washington with it's famous Inn (17 miles), the Ashby Inn in Paris, Va.(20miles) and many more sites.

And lastly, in case hikes, bike rides and walks don’t satisfy your exercise needs, Warrenton has a large aquatic center with a competition pool, hot tub, water park with slides and workout facilities. Golf courses, a tennis club and a yoga studio are also just within a 10 minute drive. But don't overbook yourselves. The house, the farm and the grounds are special.

Peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay at Whiffletree Farm!! The home has so much charm and all the comforts of home. The beds were super comfortable plenty of towels and linens!! The location was everything being on a working farm and meeting Jason and his wonderful family were a bonus! We took full advantage of the farm store and purchased many dozen eggs and sausage and bacon!! Waking up and looking at the cows grazing in the fields and the chickens running around their coop - Perfect! We will definitely try to come back for a stay when in the area!! Loved old town Warrenton. We were celebrating our son’s wedding and we could not have picked a more perfect home base!!

Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home with tons of old charm and modern updates. House is situated on a beautiful lot that's part of a much larger farm and has ample space (inside and out) and all the amenities you'd need for a relaxing getaway. Just bring your toothbrush and you're all set. Chase, the property manager, is quick to respond and easy to work with. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone looking to stay in this area.

Beautiful, cozy & relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house during our wedding weekend over New Year's Eve and are so glad that we did! I stayed there with bridesmaids the night before the wedding and got ready there on the day-of. It was the perfect space to relax and enjoy time with my best friends. We loved the peaceful setting and the space to eat breakfast together in the dining room. The big windows made for great natural lighting for hair and make-up, too :) My husband and I then came back to spend the night at Whiffletree after the wedding. It was so fun to enjoy the house and use the kitchen to make breakfast and relax the next morning. Chase, the property manager, was very helpful and responsive. He even altered us to some gloves we left behind and we were able to get them before leaving town. We highly recommend this beautiful place to anyone looking for a perfect Virginia getaway!

Wonderful house and grounds

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely lovely. There were eggs, bread and sausage in the kitchen, as well as some staples like olive oil. The sunroom and porch off it were the favorite gathering spots. We were in town for a family wedding which took us away when all we wanted to do was sit and enjoy the view. We visited the farm store, walked to see the chickens and turkeys. The property is really lovely. Rooms are large and very comfortably furnished. Everyone commented on how wonderful the house was. Would love to come back when I have more time. Property management was very accommodating and the information sent in advance was perfect.
