Overview

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.

About Cindy Mullen

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.

Why Cindy Mullen chose Lexington

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

What makes this cottage unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just want to take a moment and thank you for helping make our vacation time so much fun. The cottage was perfect ... a really delightful place to stay, and your help and information when we needed it made our visit even more delightful. We hope we can come back some time when the weather is cold.

Great trip!

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our time! The cabin was beautiful and perfect getaway for our 10 year anniversary. We had our 3 month old with us and the cabin was very accommodating. We were close enough to town to visit but far enough away to feel like we were getting away. The warm scones in the morning were a welcome surprise, thank you!

Found: quiet beauty in the country

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to get away from the noise and commotion of our regular weekly schedule, and we definitely found it here. The cottage was perfect for two people who wanted to read, reconnect, play a game or two, and enjoy the outdoors by sitting on the wrap around porch. The cottage is comfortable and convenient to Lexington if you want to stroll in a quaint central Virginia town.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic guest house, modern, beautifully furnished, with everything you need for a quiet relaxing getaway. Very close to the beautiful historic city of Lexington, and close to the Blueridge Parkway. The wrap around porch with a lovely view of woods is great. This guest home is really value for the money, and the location is ideal. Cindy was a good host, who made herself available for any question or need we had. My wife and I will certainly be back.
