This is a one-of-a-kind, architect-designed, energy-efficient, simple yet luxurious home that offers a solitary and comfortable experience in a beautiful setting, the Shenandoah Mountains.
The house has a great room, two conventional bedrooms (master with en suite bath and kids' room with bunk beds and crib), a den that converts to a semi-private bedroom (queen or two twins), two luxury bathrooms (one with a soaking tub and one with double shower), a gourmet kitchen, and a secret playroom.
The house is filled with books, games, toys, movies, a Steinway piano—everything you'd want for a fun and relaxing getaway. We designed it with our then-baby in mind and it's very safe for kids. There's a secret playhouse with a play kitchen and art supplies. All your needs are taken care of: We've got air conditioning, a laundry room, and speedy internet.
Outside on our four acres there's a pool (open May through September), large deck, comfy screen porch, grill, fire pit (s'mores!), archery equipment, slack line, sand table, delicious wild berries, occasional wildlife sightings, and invigorating walks (if you don't mind hills).
The rolling green hills make the Shenandoah Valley one of the most beautiful areas in the mid-Atlantic. Five minutes away is a farm market with playground, BBQ, bakery, and ice cream; 15 minutes away is Strasburg, with antique stores and casual restaurants; 30 minutes away are Winchester, Front Royal, and the famous Skyline Drive in Shenandoah National Park. In the summer there's semi-pro baseball, drive-in movies, and river activities a short drive away. In the fall, the leaves are amazing, and the pick-your-own farms and markets are great fun. Spring is a great time to hike (including on the Appalachian Trail nearby), shop for antiques, and visit Civil War historical sites and caverns. Wineries have sprouted up all around.
We are 90 minutes from D.C. and 2 hours from Baltimore. Nearest major airports are Dulles (75 miles), Reagan National (90 miles), and BWI (125 miles). The house has an uphill gravel driveway that is accessible with any vehicle, but you may prefer four-wheel drive.
Guests will have to sign a standard rental agreement. Check-in time is 4 p.m. and check-out time is 12 p.m., but there may be some flexibility—just ask ahead of time.
The $60 pool cleaning fee will be refunded upon booking for guests who will not be using the pool. Typically, pool season runs from Memorial Day through Labor Day (longer if weather permits).
We are serious about the 6-person maximum for overnight stays—please respect it. Our caretaker lives next door and will know if you are bringing in extra guests.
