The King Mountain House is a secluded, modern, light-filled mountain retreat with beautiful views of the Virginia Piedmont and the Blue Ridge Mountains. It is located in the heart of Rappahannock County, on the 375 acre Horseshoe Hollow Farm, near the historic village of Little Washington. The King Mountain House is in Rappahannock County which is less than a two hour drive from Washington, DC, but it feels like another world. There are no traffic lights, traffic jams, chain restaurants or department stores. Instead, there are miles and miles of scenic county roads, organic farms, artist studios, wineries, unique shops and a variety of fine restaurants including the 5 star 'The Inn at Little Washington'.

It is located in the heart of Rappahannock County, on the 375 acre Horseshoe Hollow Farm, near the historic village of Little Washington. The King Mountain House is in Rappahannock County which is less than a two hour drive from Washington, DC, but it feels like another world. There are no traffic lights, traffic jams, chain restaurants or department stores. Instead, there are miles and miles of scenic county roads, organic farms, artist studios, wineries, unique shops and a variety of fine restaurants including the 5 star 'The Inn at Little Washington'. And then there's nature. Bright starry night skies and clear views of the Blue Ridge Mountains are the norm, as are the friendly faces. The King Mountain House has 2.5 levels, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 open living areas on 2 levels, 2 dining areas, 2 sunrooms, a sauna, kitchen, libraries and more. The living, dining and bedroom areas are spacious and attractively furnished. The fully equipped galley kitchen, with its updated appliances and ample storage, is a bright space to prepare fresh foods from local farms. There are two outdoor living spaces that include a large sitting and eating deck off the main floor and large a heavy timber pergola with a stone patio off the lower level. A megalthic stone fire pit is off the patio. The King Mountain House is 3-5 miles from rural villages that are known for their restaurants, cafes, vineyards, local theater, music festivals, galleries & shops. It is 15 minutes from the Skyline Drive and in the middle of Rappahannock's fox hunting country. Hiking, fishing, cycling, horseback riding and golfing opportunities abound. The 375 acre Horseshoe Hollow Farm is also available for hunting, when in season, for an extra charge. Small hunting groups are welcome. We invite you to stay at The King Mountain House to enjoy our mountain retreat and all the splendor Rappahannock County has to offer. More

We booked The King Mountain House at the last minute to escape from a rather soulless “mountain retreat” outside Charlottesville that turned out to be too retreated for its own good. The King Mountain House shares some similarity in being ‘modern’, but it’s modernism of...More

Wonderful rental! The house was very comfortable with a great well-equipped kitchen. The location was secluded and quiet with wonderful views. Restaurants and shops were an easy drive.
