The pastures, forests, hills, orchards, lakes, and buildings of our 500 acre farm present a stunning backdrop for a multitude of experiences. Rich with history, this 350+ year old property currently boasts a functioning farm and orchard, a special events venue, a renovated nineteenth-century retreat house, as well as trails, fields, campfire sites, and more.
The Gardens at Historic Valley View Farm provide a floral and fragrant setting to gather for a wedding or picnic. Walkable from the Simpers Retreat House and the Red Barn, and with parking just steps away, this area easily ties in with our other facilities, and offers a gorgeous view of our pond.
The Red Barn has undergone renovation in recent years, but it has retained its traditional, earthy character. The interior is woody and quaint, while the portico sits at an elevation that yields a mesmerizing panorama of northern Fauquier County.
The Simpers Retreat House has a fascinating heritage, and it has evolved over the years to now furnish all of the cozy comforts of home. At one time a stop on the underground railroad, it now has modern kitchen and bathroom amenities. It also boasts a dining room, large den / family room, and bedding for up to 14 guests.
