   The Marshall Manor House, cornerstone of the 4200-acre Marriott Ranch, is operated by Marriott International as a bed and breakfast. The Inn at Fairfield Farm (the official name) offers 10 well-appointed guest rooms, each with a fireplace and private bath. The inn boasts a long history of well-known guests, Marshall Manor House including the late President Ronald Reagan and King of the Cowboys, Roy Rogers. Waiting outside is a sprawling, working ranch nestled in Virginia's scenic Shenandoah Valley with spectacular views of the Blue Ridge Mountains where 1500 head of cattle roam the range. Guests can fish in well-stocked ponds, go for long walks past grazing longhorns and even go on a cattle round-up.
   The property was discovered in 1951 by J. Willard Marriott Sr., which had reminded him of his childhood years on a family farm in Utah. The farm continues to serve as a getaway for the Marriott family, their employees, and friends, as well as a popular location for corporate retreats and training events. Located in Hume, Virginia, the ranch is about 55 miles from Washington, D.C., and just a few miles from Front Royal and the north entrance to the Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline Drive.
