Elegance and Serenity

What a beautiful, relaxing stay we had at this secluded private farm! We were all adults in our party, but this place would also be perfect for families sharing a retreat together. There is some much space inside and out, that it is easy to find relaxing privacy on the veranda or strolling around the pond. At the same time, though, there are plenty of gathering spaces for the group – a large kitchen with an adjoining dining room that seats 12 easily, a living room area that seats at least as many, and a huge playroom upstairs for kids. The kitchen was very well appointed, we found everything we needed to fix both breakfasts and large dinners for our group. The property’s management couldn’t have been more helpful! They were all fantastic, but a special thank you to Pam for helping us organize a wine shuttle bus for a tour of local vineyards and the MOST WONDERFUL CHEF’s dinner by Dave! One of our members (who has traveled the world and tasted every kind of delicacy from everywhere) exclaimed that his meal was most definitely in her top 5 meals of all time! He prepared course after course of the best food I’ve ever tasted. His corn fritters and apple butter salsa were to die for. Actually all his sauces were spectacular! The house is appointed with coffee and tea as well as items to get you started such as dish soap and paper towels, but you’ll want to hit a store if you’re staying more than a few days. Again, thanks to Pam! She picked up our food for us at Wegman’s and had it well organized and put away neatly before we even checked in!! There are 5 full bedrooms plus cots to put in the playroom if you have more people, but there are only 3-1/2 bathrooms so plan accordingly! There was not a BBQ at the property as was listed but there was a smoker and pellets which worked for us just fine. We just found the directions online and our burgers were delicious. We had history buffs in our group who set out one day to Winchester, one day to Harper’s Ferry, and one day to Antietam; it’s all within an easy drive. We had wine tasters who found many wonderful vineyards and breweries to sample. And, of course, we had home bodies who stayed back and visited, or walked around the pond, read books on the veranda, or napped. It was a wonderful relaxing Memorial Day weekend. Thank you very much to Luke and to Loudoun Stay for making such a memorable time and a lovely way to process the loss of our patriarch and burial at Arlington. Family and friends together!Manager’s ResponseThank you, Linda!!! We were honored to host such a lovely group of people for such a memorable event! Many many blessings on you all!!!
