History

The Raising

Meadow Rock Farm was built in 1994 and served as a residence until 2007.  In 2011 it became an organic farm and is now available as a vacation rental and micro event venue.

Built as a custom timber frame and made of white, red, and pin oak, the beams were harvested in the Mid-Atlantic region.  Since the house is a true timber frame, all of the beams are created with only wood joinery and secured with hardwood pegs.

The beams are a highlight of the house, creating large open spaces and over 3,500 square feet of living space.

The house features a great room and dining area with a fireplace made from Maryland flagstone.  Much of the wood in the house came from the trees on the property: wild cherry kitchen cabinets and library shelves, maple and ash doors, and oak trim.  The kitchen includes a commercial range and a walnut bar top that is 2 inches thick and had been in storage since the Depression.

The house is filled with country antiques and family heirlooms.  There are 6 bedrooms, a third-floor loft, and commercially inspected basement area for HERBAL DELIGHTS.  The cedar exterior of the house compliments the woodland setting. There are extensive gardens which include roses, perennials, a kitchen garden, and guests are encouraged to enjoy the herbs during their stay.
