1780 STONE HOUSE IN HISTORIC LEXINGTON, VA

Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This 200 year old house has been restored and awaits your visit to Historic Lexington Virginia. Whether you are visiting the colleges, vacationing, visiting the Virginia Horse Center or 'whatever' it will be your favorite headquarters for a visit to our area. It is conveniently located on Main Street near the colleges and the Historic District and only 2 miles from the Horse Center. The new park at Jordans Point is down the hill 2 blocks! The Chessie Trail and Woods Creek Trail begin at the park. Access to the Maury River is here as well. The VMI sports facilities are but a short walk up Main Street.

My house is quiet inside its two foot thick walls. I have furnished it with interesting things and it is a special place. Linens are furnished as well as my ecclectic collection of kitchen ware. Come to Lexington and stay a spell at the Historic 1780 Stone House! Thanks, Tom Bradshaw

About The Owner

I have lived here for 35 years and love Lexington. I met Faye while I was a cadet at VMI and we have operated businesses here since I graduated from photography school. We have 3 vacation rental properties and are involved with managing 10 rental properties. I have enjoyed restoring old buildings and especially this 200 year old property. Our focus most recently has been to work on the landscape. Little by little it is improving.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996

Why The Owner chose Lexington

I chose this property while looking for investment property next door. I told the realtor that I sure would like to own the Stone House next door. Several days later he called and said I just Listed it! My answer-'you just sold it'! We had previously built a log cabin as a vacation rental at Natural Bridge and enjoyed the vacation rental business and thought that an in town property might work.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the unique benefits of renting a house instead of a room is space to spread out. Also, uniqueness of the property--not a 'cookie cutter same as everywhere else' accomodation. we had stayed in a house in Williamsburg in the restored area and felt a part of the community even for only a few nights so we thought others might enjoy having a place of their own while visiting might have some appeal. Also, seemed important. the opportunity to bring pets

Great Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our 2 cats very much enjoyed staying at the stone house for a week. The house was perfect and the town of Lexington is great. The people are so friendly and willing to help and everything was just perfect, including the weather!

The fact that our 2 "children" were allowed to be with us made it even more special not having to worry about them being at home alone.

I would most definitely stay at the stone house again!

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5
This is a lovely home on a busy street but that's not much of a big deal. We loved all of the different collectibles in the home. When you enter, the front room just feels welcoming. My 14 year old niece thought the house was "spooky" but I think that faded by day two. It rained for most of our visit, but I would have loved to have enjoyed that balcony off the bedroom. We did get a brief period to use the grill and the stone patio. Thoroughly loved the Virginia Safari Park about 20 minutes away, even with the rain. There are many other shops & restaurants to explore in Lexington. Seems to plenty to do for a long weekend. We skipped Hull's Drive-In because we wanted to get up early for the Hot Air Balloon Rally-----but it rained. Other tidbits, no cellphone service in the house for calling, but there is wi-fi. Not sure if there was free long distance on the landline, so we just used our cellphones outside. This house was really clean. Directions for the tv were great, although we only used it to watch the local weather. If I were to ask for one thing to be different--- I'd like nicer bathroom towels--- but that's just me. Great stay!

Owner's Response: The Safari Park is 11 miles south of Lexington and is very popular. Lexington has many historic sites to visit and the Natural Bridge is another must visit! I am proud of this house and am glad to share it with those who appreciate history and architecture. I have furnished the house with interesting things and original paintings.

Wonderful and Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I brought our two Boston Terriers to the Stone House for a relaxing weekend. We loved the charm of this old house. It is close to the road but the yard is fully fenced so there were no issues for the dogs. We heard some street noise while on the patio but the 22 inch stone walls made the inside of the house sound proof from the outside noises. Fully stocked kitchen and brand new grill were a plus as we chose to grill at the house all but one night. The bed was comfortable and my wife loved the eclectic mix of furnishings. The house is conviently located next to VMI and a few blocks from downtown. We loved Lexington and people were so friendly.

Owner's Response: The patio has been covered with slate and makes a nice place to have a cook out. The location near the park and the trail heads as well as near the sports facilities for VMI make this the perfect place for a football or basketball weekend!

1780 Stone House

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at the 1780 Stone House in Lexington was wonderful! How often can you find a place that has all the comforts of home coupled with a historic building, furnishings and appointments--not to mention Wi-Fi, cable AND a washer and dryer?

Situated on the edge of the historic downtown district very near VMI, it's close enough to leave your vehicle parked and meander through town on foot.

Our host's directions were great, a binder is provided that helps you make local choices for restaurants and activities and the kitchen has most everything needed to call it home. In addition, when we discovered we'd left something behind, every effort was made to help us find it, and we were rewarded with success.

Thank you for a lovely weekend. We'd love to come back some time and visit again.

Owner's Response: We work hard to make our vacation rental special. The park just down the hill is a great place to walk and the trail (Woods Creek Trail) starts in the park and wanders through W&L and through the town. Pets enjoy the park and trail as well. This location across from the VMI football stadium and near the basketball arena (both only a short walk away) makes this a great place for a sports weekend! I added WIFI this summer and just bought a new gas grill for the patio. We keep the house open all year so wintertime visits can be fun. The gas logs in the fireplace make for a cozy environment!
