The Space

"Back Corner Room"

Oldeststone Farm offers up to 4 rooms each with a queen size bed, plus a "kids loft" with bunk beds in it. Each queen room is $125 per night. The kids loft pricing varies on the number of guests.

Built in 1734, Oldeststone Farm is the oldest house in the Shenandoah Valley. Situated on 46 lush acres, we have every animal under the sun! Pigs, sheep, horses, miniature horses, cows, parrots- even peacocks!

Be prepared for a real farm experience. The house is rustic, sometimes muddy, and sometimes has a wayward dog passing through. A chicken has been known to wander in. But the guest rooms - where no animals are allowed- are beautifully appointed with lush linens and antiques. Everything is simple, just like in the "old days." John, the owner, is an interior-designer-turned-farmer, so gorgeous little details abound throughout the house. Beautiful, but rustic. Shabby, but chic!

The house is made of stone, and to that end, it's like sleeping in a's cool in the summer except on the hottest of days. It is not currently air conditioned. In the fall and winter, a fire-effect space heater warms the room quickly.

All rooms are shared bath.

John will be happy to give you a quick tour of the farm and introduce you to some of the resident animals, and you may even be able to pet one or two. The highlight is watching the sun go down as the two male peacocks take their evening strut across the grounds.

The house sleeps around 20, and even has a "kids loft," with a sitting area and 3 bunkbeds. If your party is large, there will be room for you. Ask about whole-house rental or accommodations for your large party. We're also happy to accommodate small groups too.

VERY convenient to all Harpers Ferry and Charles Town has to offer:
Tubing, Canoeing
Whitewater Rafting
Horseback Riding
Charles Town Racing & Casino
Harpers Ferry National Historic Park
Antietam Battlefield

But you may never want to leave the farm!

You are welcome to bring food to cook for any of your meals. We've got an indoor dining room as well as an outdoor eating area, full kitchen and outdoor grill.

ASK US about booking a massage here at the farm, or having us prepare a beautiful meal for you, outside, al fresco.

You may access the kitchen and are welcome to use the pots/pans/dishes, etc.
Indoor communal dining area
Front porch
Back outdoor dining area.
The Living Room MAY OR MAY NOT be accessible depending on our guest situation.

Interaction with Guests

I spend most of my day out working on the farm, but I have made some very good friends by getting to know my guests in the evening. We can spend time together or not, depending on your style. I'll be in and out all day, and we'll probably run into each other in the kitchen at night.
I have kids so you'll see them around, too.

Other Things to Note

Check in times vary and we cannot guarantee an early check-in. Due to work and school schedules, on Fridays check-in time is generally 6pm. On Saturdays and Sundays, we can accommodate guests earlier.

House Rules

In the area where only the guest rooms and living room are: no food allowed and only clear liquids please. Kindly do not bring food or drinks into the living room or guest rooms. There is lots of light colored furniture and we want to keep the upholstery clean. But, you are absolutely welcome to enjoy these things in the enormous communal eating area, the kitchen, or the porches.

Also, no animals allowed in the area where the living room and guest rooms are. There are hundreds of animals on the property, but even they have places that are "off limits." Pets staying with us will be given fine accommodation in our bunk room downstairs. Also, there are farm dogs wandering freely throughout the property, so if your dog does not play well with others, this may not be the place for him.

Please do not wander the farm without asking John first. He'll point out the places you are free to roam. Gates can be left open easily and animals can get loose quickly. Also, not all animals are friendly, so do not just walk up to them. John is happy to make "introductions" to the animals!
