the Miller Barn

The early Millers were successful dairy farmers and apple growers. By the early 1900s, the herd of dairy cows had grown large enough to justify the construction of the Dairy Barn. At 235 feet long, John Clifford Sr.’s barn is a marvel of engineering and one of the largest wooden barns of its era still standing in America today. In 2010, Cliffs III and IV teamed up to renovate the old family home and open the Inn.

Today, the barn event space plays host to weddings, fundraisers, parties and gatherings.


the Farm

The current owners of Mount Vernon Farm are focused on preserving and improving the land. The farm employs best management practices to protect the watershed and soils. In 2012, the Mount Vernon Farm was awarded the Rappahannock River Basin Grand Award, one of many other recognitions it has received for sustainable farming and conservation. The farm includes 840 acres of rolling hills filled with warm and cool season grasses, orchards, forests, and meadows teeming with wildlife. Currently Waterpenny Farm rents portions of the property for their sustainable farming operations.

The modern generation of Millers emphasizes habitat and soil conservation and has placed 604 acres of the farm into a Virginia Conservation easement.
