A real farm stay about an hour outside of DC!

The Space

This listing is for the "Downstairs Room." This room is just off the living room. Queen size bed and lovely view!

Oldeststone Farm offers up to 5 rooms, each with a queen size bed, plus a "kids loft" with bunk beds in it. Each room is $150 per night.

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. But the rooms 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 cave...it's cool in the summer except on the hottest of days. It is not currently air conditioned.

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 play space and 3 bunkbeds. We're currently accommodating single "groups", so 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 have to offer:
Hiking
Tubing, Canoeing
Whitewater Rafting
Horseback Riding
Wineries
Restaurants
Charles Town Racing & Casino
Harpers Ferry National Historic Park
Antietam Battlefield
Antique Stores
Historic towns- Shepherdstown, Harpers Ferry, Charles Town.

But you may never want to leave the farm!

We provide a simple breakfast in the morning with coffee. You are welcome to bring food to cook for any of your meals.

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

  • My kids and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at John's farm. Not only were John and his family (to include the dogs)gracious and friendly hosts who made us feel at home as soon as we pulled in, they have every animal you could think of keeping us busy and laughing all day, with plenty of space to run around or sneak away for a good book, and comfortable accommodations far beyond what you would expect on a farm. Also, his place is close to Harpers Ferry for fun family activities at River Riders. We will definitely go back!

  • We really had a magical time on your farm! My kids (ages 8 and 10) will never forget their time with the animals-- particularly the puppies, but also feeding the baby goats, petting the horses, feeding the pigs, collecting quail eggs (the list goes on and on). We all loved how open John was -- he showed us around and we had free reign to explore as we wished. The fires in the fire pit each night, watching the moon rise and checking out the constellations also were highlights. We felt welcome and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Taking the bunk room (accommodating 6 of us) was perfect for my group.

About
In 2011 I sold everything I owned to finally realize my lifelong dream of owning a farm. I'm a single dad with 3 kids, who split their time between the farm and DC. I always wanted to be surrounded by kids and animals- and now I am! I work probably 14 hours a day getting this place up, running, and sustainable. I'm up with the sun and having a glass of wine on the porch at sunset. This is a working farm: with all the good and the bad. We've got all different types of animals: cows, pigs, sheep, horses, miniature horses, chickens, geese, ducks- even peacocks! Here you can get pretty close to the animals and most are very gentle. We've also got a few rowdy farm dogs, we get muddy and dirty, the roosters crow in the morning and you might find yourself stepping over a "cow patty" or three. Be prepared to get in touch with where our food comes from: its a real as it gets at Oldeststone Farm. I'm trying to run this place like it was in the days it was built. In my "former life" I was an interior decorator, catering to high-end clients in Washington DC. So you'll find plenty of beautiful details in every corner of this home. It's rustic but beautiful.
