My recommendations for the Best Pick Your Owns, Fall and Halloween Events for the Whole Family

The leaves are a changing, football is well underway and pumpkin and apple picking is everywhere. It is Fall again in Northern Virginia.

I have scoured the local news to find the best listings of Pick your Own Farms and Halloween Events for the kiddies. But I wanted to add my own picks.

Ty Pumpkin Patch

My personal recommendation is Great Country Farms in Bluemont, Virginia out in Loudoun County. It might be a drive for some but I would argue well worth it. There are enough activities to please all ages and tire out the little ones. (not to mention Pumpkin Chunkin) We also get a chance to go out to actual fields where the apples are grown and pick them off the tree.

Then I proceed to can the apples for apple sauce.

(Psst: There’s are two breweries and a vineyard nearby as well #vawine #vabeer)

Dirt Farm Brewing

Bear Chase Brewing

Bluemont Vineyard

Also the best part is that Great Country Farms is also open for business in the Spring and Summer as well a real gem.

Want something a little further in and get the sillies out of the kids? The Reston Farm Market off the corner of Barron Cameron and Route 7 is a great choice for bounce houses and buying a couple pumpkins if you live nearby.  There is a great BBQ Food Truck on site. Our kids like it so much we just bought season passes.

Have a blast out there everyone.

Your Luxury Retreat Awaits You

Video of Eagles’ Retreat

We don’t usually feature properties listed by other Realtors, but this is a unique circumstance. Fellow conservative activist and commentator Terry Beatley, who is regularly featured on the Fairfax Free Citizen, is ready to part with her treasured home on the Northern Neck of Virginia. As one of the most unique properties in the Neck, Eagles’ Retreat is a dramatic blend of water, wilderness, and relaxation in a fully modern and beautifully appointed home. Eagles’ Retreat offers a shooting range, water access to a private lake and to the Corrotoman River, and nearly 59 acres of unspoiled wilderness. For $2.25mm you could own this enchanting getaway, a mere 2.5 hours drive from the DC area.

Housing Inventory Snapshot – October 2016

This month the 30 Days Trend column for the Average Days on Market shows a stagnation in a timeframe that is historically active for Loudoun, Fairfax, and Arlington Counties. Probably more interesting is the large number of properties on the market in Fairfax County across all price categories. This supports our anecdotal perception that through October there has been a lot of inventory and the buyers are being very choosey. It does appear that the end of the political season has resolved questions that were keeping buyers on the fence. In the last week listings of ours that were getting virtually no traffic in Great Falls, Fredericksburg, North Reston, Herndon, and Vienna have had a dramatic increase in showing activity, two of the six are now under contract and offers submitted or pending on two more.
