Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, Loft + Great room, 2 Baths (Sleeps 6-7)

The Mountain Pond House is a very unique property. It is located on the edge of a stocked, spring fed pond. There are two bedrooms with an additional queen size futon. This cottage is just the right spot to come relax, and enjoy the peace and quite. In the summer you hear the frogs and night creatures. There are deer aplenty and an occasional bear.

There are lots of things to do to help you get reconnected. There are 2 miles of mowed trails on the 125 acre property and walking sticks for hiking. The trail goes down by Walkers Creek. Fishing is really good in the 2 ponds. They have been stocked with bass and bream. If you feel real ambitious, you can go to Goshen Pass and go across the hanging bridge and hike up Jump Mountain. The Maury River and runs thru the pass and it is stocked with trout thru out the year.

The cottage is close enough to Lexington to visit all the historic sites.

Parents of the students at VMI, W&L and Southern University enjoy the Pond House and getting their kids away for a change. We are close enough to Natural Bridge and the Safari Park to make a fun day.

Just come and see for yourself. You will not be disappointed!

VERY NICE PROPERTY. GREAT VIEWS AND TRAILS.

  • 4 of 5
Great place to relax and enjoy the outdoors. Very nice walking trails. Excellent views. House is nicely appointed and equipped (except for no wifi.) Even though the weather was a little cold during our stay we used the deck a lot for bird watching and just hanging out.

From the minute we get there till the second we left we absolutely loved it ! Cabin is very spacious and clean. You can def see that it's taking care of . It offers multiple trails right outside of the cabine . The house has full kitchen, pans, coffee maker and pretty much everything you can find inside of your own kitchen. Scenery is very colorful . I highly recommend it , if you trying to getaway for a couple days, u will def find everything you want there.

EXCEEDED OUR EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
This review is long overdue. My sister and I chose the Pond house as a place for us to "meet in the middle" with our children. She is from North Carolina and I am from New Jersey. We could not have been more pleased with the house and our host.

The entire trip was a surprise to both my children and my sister's kids. The morning of the trip, they were told they were going to see their cousins but had no idea where we were meeting them. They had all kinds of guesses during our trip as to where we were going. They were convinced at one point it was Great Wolf Lodge. I was a bit nervous as my kids love Great Wolf....and in a kids' eyes that is a hard trip to beat. As we pulled up the driveway to the Pond House, the excitement in their eyes and voices told it all. Every part of the property and house caused that same excitement over and over as we took everything in and became familiar with our new surroundings. They were in love with the place and so was I!

Our children range in age from four to nine and everyone of them had a blast. We hiked, fished, relaxed on the deck and just enjoyed each other's company in a perfect setting. Our host, William, checked on us when we came in and asked if it would be ok to give the kids tractor rides the following day. True to his promise, he came back the following day and took turns taking all five of the kids on a tractor ride.

This was an absolutely perfect mini vacation. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone looking to get away. Thank you William for a vacation we will never forget. We hope to be back soon!

WONDERFUL R&R GETAWAY

Wonderful r&r getaway
  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough great things about the Pond House. It was clean, comfy and well stocked. Our host, Bill, was very personable and kind. We loved the views and absolute quiet. If you are looking for a peaceful place, look no further. The kitchen was very well equipped and spacious. The recliner and glider in the living room were super comfy. We spent a lot of time there reading. We enjoyed the trails and out of doors as well. The picture opportunities are endless. The only draw back to the house is the thermostat is not very user friendly. But this would not deter us from returning to this wonderful place. The only thing you need to take is food, clothes, camera and a good book. The house has everything else. Looking forward to a return trip:)

WHAT A PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a lovely time--the peace and quiet, the beauty, the accomodations and the hosts were all spectacular! We relaxed and hiked, and visited the local towns including one who offered a great bluegrass festival. We were lucky with perfect full moon evenings enjoying the romantic firepit high on the hill staring at the stars. Our hosts were so accomodating -- they offered so many amenities, it was hard to enjoy them all in a week.

A wonderful place we intend to return to soon!
