Description of the Madison vacation home rental
Whippoorwill Manor Farm is a destination by itself. It is very rare that one can rent their own farm for a week or even for a weekend. Many people have the desire to own a second house in the country to enjoy a secluded environment with family and friends, but a farm is both expensive to purchase and maintain. Whippoorwill Manor Farm provides an unique opportunity to rent the experience of having one's own farm. The 110 acres with its miles of trails along with exploring the many restored barns provide the opportunity to enjoy a real connection back to the land and history of our country. The Hop field next to the home adds an additional ambiance to the grounds. The historic but completely modernized home provides a year round setting to enjoy. The original part of the house (log cabin) dates back to the 1700's and is the second oldest structure in Madison County. During the Civil War, the Farm was used as a camp by the Confederacy on several occasions during the campaigns of 1862 and 1863.

The house was completely restored in 2005 adding a new addition that houses a large modern kitchen, and 3 full baths (over 3,800 sq ft). The house has all the modern conveniences including wireless internet (best available in Madison County but not city speed) and direct TV so you can stay connected, but the house has maintained its unique historical charm to include its wide hickory planked floors, log cabin rooms with stone fireplaces, and hand crafted wood work throughout the home. One of Washington's top interior decorators designed the home specifically with the idea of group/family use. All new beds and furniture purchased in early 2010. The house even offers a 'pub' room that's great to enjoy a drink while playing darts or cards after a hard day of outdoor activities such as: climbing Old Rag Mt (the most spectacular hike in VA) or hiking White Oak Canyon to see its impressive upper and lower waterfalls, both parking lots are approximately 7 miles from the house both located in Shenandoah National Park. Also just minutes from Graves Mountain Lodge and both Prince Michel, Sharp Rock and DuCard Vineyards.

For cycling enthusiasts from other parts of the country, the mountain scenery coupled with the quiet, safe, country roads are a national treasure to be experienced. The very popular Tour de Madison Bike Ride (held in mid May every year) , and the ride enjoys national statue. The Tour is not a race, but rather designed as a wonderful way to see the great scenic beauty of the Blue Ridge mountains. They have routes for the entire family; you can choose between 16, 40, and 62 miles along country roads. If you can't make the actual weekend, the owner will provide you with the specific routes of the Tour so can enjoy during your stay. Your group could even do a different 'century' everyday for a week and beyond the initial few miles leaving/returning to the house, you will not have to cover the same ground twice! The owners even have several mountain and road bikes available for your use, both male and female bikes.

It is a wonderful place for family vacations and reunions as well as a quiet retreat for business strategy development and/or executive team building events. An ideal setting for cooking out or even hosting an outdoor/catered event and grounds surrounding the house to include the new Hop field with its vines growing on 12' trestles. Virginia was actually the Hop growing capital during the early colonial period of the country. The property is 15-20 minutes from the historic towns of Culpepper, Madison and Sperryville for shopping and quality restaurants. Additionally, it serves as a perfect home vacation site to explore the many historic landmarks of the Shenandoah Valley and its vast natural beauty.

Area Information
Madison County has been a crossroads of history for over 11,000 years. Paleo-Indians, the royal governor Alexander Spottswood and the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe, as well as Civil War Generals Stonewall Jackson and J. E. B. Stuart along with their men have all been visitors to Madison County. Trails and early roads led through the Piedmont area of Madison and up into the Blue Ridge Mountains enabling 18th and 19th century travelers to enter the Shenandoah Valley. Early settlers included German, English and Scots/Irish families in the 18th century. Descendants of these families still live in Madison.

President Herbert Hoover bought land in the mountain area of Madison and built his summer camp there. His official visit to the town of Madison in August 1929 is commemorated annually. The county has retained its rich agricultural tradition and has maintained the architectural heritage of 18th and 19th century buildings and homes. Museums offer a view to the past for history buffs of all ages and a walking tour of the town of Madison enables visitors to appreciate its beauty. Travel through the county will bring the visitor into the unique blend of country life today amidst the historical evidence of years gone by.
