The space

The Hunt Country Cottage is located in the heart of Upperville Virginia, home to the nation’s oldest and most prestigious horse show. We bought the home as a getaway second home in 2005 and have spent the past year restoring and decorating the hunt box with loving care.

The home has a standing seam metal roof, clapboard style siding, a stone foundation, cozy front porch and second floor dormer windows. The interior is painted with warm colors and accented by antique oak barn wood paneling and trim in the family room. The flooring is the original antique heart pine.

The cottage is decorated as a traditional English Hunt Box, with equine art and memorabilia, lovely antiques, warm carpets on the heart pine floors, and high-end bed linens.

Enjoy the outdoors from covered porches front and rear. Relax in the comfort of a fully-equipped modern house with a touch of our English heritage. The back yard is accented by a small stream where neighborhood song birds and hawks visit frequently.

Enjoy fine dining and an old English pub across the street at the Hunter’s Head Tavern, a favorite destination for locals and visitors. The village of Upperville is peaceful, quiet, and friendly. Broad sidewalks make for an easy stroll through town or visit to the local shops.

Sky meadows state park is a 10 minute drive to the west. The park provides regular events, hiking trails, camp sites, a stocked fishing pond, and access to the Appalachian Trail. Drive a little farther and enjoy nature's harvest at Stribling and Hartland Orchards.

Our home is perfectly situated for equestrian activities. We are within 10 minutes of world class stables, polo fields, and steeple chase grounds. We also enjoy the convenience numerous wineries, excellent restaurants, Olde English pubs, and exquisite shops.

The cottage is conveniently located 6 miles west of Middleburg, 50 miles West of DC, 5 miles from Sky Meadows State Park. A short 10-15 minute drive east or west takes you to a multitide of fine establishments. Located to the west are the Blackthorne Inn and Ashby Inn. To the east is Middleburg with the Fox’s Den, Julien’s, the Red Fox Inn, and the French Hound to name but a few.

Dan's place is, truly, a home away from home. We spent almost a week there sharing a few days with another couple and a fella. Our adventures included golf excursions, experiencing the beautifully classic area and a memorable wedding. As the rating stars show, the accommodations …

Dan's house was perfect for two couples to relax and enjoy a weekend. Prior to arrival, our inquiries were answered promptly and thoroughly. Amenities like a grill and fire pit were appreciated. The house has quality furnishings and a well-equipped kitchen.

The house was so cute, and perfect for our size. Dan was extremely helpful and available when needed, and our only disappointment was that it rained all weekend so we couldn't test out the fire pit!
