Bowyer's Mountain Hill Farm--quiet seclusion in Virginia's beautiful Blue Ridge just an hour and a half from Washington, D.C. Back in the 1790' a man named Engil Bowyer selected the spot where the beautiful view is protected and the water is plentiful to construct his large three story plus attic log home. The house was restored in the 1960's and doubled in size to approximately 4,300 sq. ft.in the mid 1970's. From the foundation stone room up to the living and dining room, library/den, glassed in porch and large family room on the main level to the five upstairs bedrooms, the home at Bowyer's Mountain Hill contains one after another charming and memorable feature. A small cabin with bath is of the same Vintage as the Main House. The Farm is currently operated as a cattle farm. The facilities lend themselves to conversion to a horse operation. Out-buildings include a large hay barn with loafing shed, cinder block granary, four stall machine shed, a vintage two story barn. The hay barn can be easily converted to horses. There are fIve garages. The property was a weekend Bed and Breakfast during the early 1980's.
In the 1880''s there were over 10,000 people in Rappahannock County, Virginia. Today, about 7,600 souls call this Blue Ridge county home. That is the kind of progress Rappahannock people like. No stop lights, no traffic, no shopping malls, no stress. Well over 50% of Rappahannock County's population have been attracted to this land of incomparable beauty from outside the area. Here they have found mountains and foothills dotted with horses, cattle, orchards, vineyards, forests full of wildlife, and quaint villages with spired churches, craft and antique shops and internationally famous dining. They have also found great neighbors who share their interests in keeping Rappahannock as it is. Nearby are the Shenandoah National Park and the Appalachian Trail. The county is home to the Rappahannock Hunt and Old Dominion Hunt Clubs, each of which have annual point-to-point races.
