Rentals At Fox Haven
Chestnut House is a restored early 19th century farmhouse cradled by beautiful rolling hills on a gravel country road. A creek gurgles in the front yard, woods loaded with birds, and a chestnut orchard are on the other three sides of the house. A big red barn – no animals – and re-purposed dairy parlor also sit on the property. Walking trails and the country road provide breathtaking views, birds of all sorts, and the Catoctin Creek is home to big blue herons, eagles, beaver, and plenty of rich plant life – a feast for the senses! Frederick is only 15 minutes away, with all of the fine dining, fine arts, performing arts, wonderful shops and entertainment you need. Antiques, civil war history, rock climbing, canoeing along the Potomac or Shenandoah Rivers, minor league baseball, outlet shopping, mountain biking and so much more are all within 15-20 minutes of the house. Washington D.C. is about a 50 minute drive, as is Baltimore. So close, yet you feel so far away.
Peaceful countryside surrounds you with woods, streams, and pasture. The house itself is a restored farmhouse with loads of room and porches where you can soak in a sunrise and a sunset. A fire ring with benches awaits. Birders paradise! Harper’s Ferry, Frederick, Shepherdstown offer loads of fun and history. Two other houses, a re-purposed Dairy Parlor, and Big Red Barn are available for retreats too. Due to zoning, we can not hold weddings at the farm. The restored farmhouse is in a tranquil location, surrounded by fields, forests, and trails. Wide-planked wooden floors, found treasures from the farmland and creek, beds piled high with handmade quilts, and porches with views that immediately lower your blood pressure and make you sigh, “aah” create a haven for a weekend getaway, family vacation, working retreat, and learning adventure.
Lovely views of South Mountain and our farm from huge back deck. Perfect for overnight retreats, a family or friends getaway, or even day long business retreats. 3 more farm houses out here to rent too. Country road, creek, bird songs, peace. Appalachian Trail, Harper’s Ferry, C&O bike bath, Catoctin Nature Center, Greenbrier Lake, Rivers, galleries, shops, antiques, and restaurants of Frederick, minor league baseball, Ski Liberty are all within 15 – 50 minutes of Fox Haven Organic Farm.
Big Red Barn & Dairy Parlor
The Big Red Barn is a warm season use structure, as there is no heat. During the warm months the barn is an exceptional place for group meals and gatherings.
Fox Haven’s creatively repurposed Dairy Parlor, where cows were once milked, is an ideal location for meetings, retreats, yoga, speakers, workshops, movie nights, and gatherings of all kinds. (Due to county zoning, we cannot hold weddings or wedding receptions here at this time.) The Dairy Parlor holds up to 99 people, has a kitchen and bathrooms. There are folding rectangular tables, a large handmade wooden table, 5 round tables, and folding chairs.
