PERFECT FOR A SECLUDED GETAWAY

Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Come stay in our cozy timber framed guesthouse for a peaceful, serene getaway. The cottage has a large porch that wraps around 2 sides. Two comfy rockers are ideal to enjoy the natural surroundings and abundant wildlife.

We are located on 38 acres off a dirt road and are secluded, yet easily accessible to town. Lexington is a 12 minute drive and Goshen Pass is 15 minutes away for great fly-fishing and other outdoor recreational opportunities.

If you are looking for quiet simplicity or a romantic getaway then this is the place.

The living area has two leather recliners in front of a wood stove (firewood provided if you want to use the stove), a perfect setting for reading and conversation. We have books by local authors and a small collection of art by locals as well.

The kitchen has a small refrigerator, stove, and microwave. There is a table and chairs for meals. The cupboard is stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, coffee press pot, and a few other pots and pans. Heat and A/C are provided using a wall mounted unit that you control with a remote controller.

The bedroom has a queen bed and the small bathroom has a shower stall, no tub. Linens and towels are provided. There is additional electric baseboard heat in the bedroom and bath.

The loft has a small sofa, table, lamps, and chair. There is also a queen size air mattress for use by those over the age of 10.

There are ceiling fans on the porch and in the living area and bedroom as well.

There is a small washer and dryer for your use in the basement (outside access).

There is no Wi-Fi, TV, or phone service to get in the way of your solitude, but your cell phone will work if you need it.

No pets. No smoking.

My husband and I came to Lexington 23 years ago. He is a Civil Engineering professor at VMI and I am a self-employed bookkeeper. He is a VMI grad as well so this place is home.

I love life in these mountains. So not the rat race of a big city. Slow pace of life.

We share the peace and quiet with abundant wildlife. There are only 8 families that live on our dirt road so we have very little traffic. We see deer and turkeys on a regular basis.

My husband spent his Christmas vacation painting me 4 barn quilts that are now on 3 of our buildings. They are so bright and pretty.

A PERFECT WEEKEND GETAWAY

  • 5 of 5
The guesthouse was as described and ready for our evening arrival. The owner happened to be awaiting our arrival. Perfect for those that want to skip the multi-unit B&B and the in town hotel. Private and secluded setting within quick striking distance to Lexington and the mountains. The porch rockers are suited for morning coffee and afternoon and evening refreshments. The kitchen, bedroom, and reading loft are very well down. Local walks on the gravel roads are available out the front door and even a bike ride along the Muary river (furrs mill rd) gets you to downtown Lexington - downhill into town. Trail guides, maps and local back-road info is provided. We found lots to do. Summertime would be great swimming in the river although in April we did not try. I will stay in the guesthouse again and would recommend to others.

REALLY LOVELY PLACE

  • 5 of 5
The cottage was great, very well appointed. So were the cookies Cindy made! The area is really beautiful as well. It is in a secluded spot but not isolated - the main house and shops are close by but the arrangement of the buildings makes the cottage feel very private.

BEAUTIFUL ESCAPE, GRACIOUS HOSTS, QUIET NIGHTS

  • 5 of 5
Looking for an escape from the sometimes stifling confines of Washington DC, we spent two nights in this beautiful, secluded cabin in the Shenandoah Valley. The drive time was ideal at three hours - close enough to DC not be prohibitive, but far enough away to count as an actual escape. The cabin was stunning, comfortable and modern, the craftsmanship particularly impeccable. Our nights were quiet, the stars were beautiful and the fire was hot. The cabin is located on grounds surrounded by forest, mountains and farmland, which provide for some amazing views. There are more than a few places hike on nearby mountains and downtown Lexington is close enough if you're in need of supplies or want to explore the area. The campuses of VMI and Washington and Lee University provide other sightseeing opportunities.

The hosts were gracious and trusting. After offering us food on arrival, they pointed out some things to do in the area, and walked us through a local map to help us get our bearings. We definitely plan on coming again. I highly recommend this location to couples looking for a secluded/romantic getway.
