This property exceeds expectations!

  • Submitted: Jul 23, 2013

Middleton House was all we were hoping and more! The decor with its numerous antiques and original hardwood floors makes you feel like you have stepped back in time to the colonial era, but the modern amenities with a soapstone kitchen & a bathroom for every bed give you the comfort you look for on a vacation in 2013! We loved hanging out on the screened in porch and visiting with friends whom we hadn't seen in 15 years and wandering up the street to walk around the W & L campus. Perfect location! We can't wait (or rather I can't) to come back for my 20th W & L reunion this spring. My other W & L friends staying here this spring are going to love it, and I can't wait to share it with them.

Perfect for a vacation with family & dog

Your house is very comfortable (everything works), spacious, well appointed, and decorated very tastefully--the paintings add color and charm. We all thank you for the wonderful time we have had. My dog and I enjoyed your garden and our walks in the neighborhood where all the gardens were lovely, each in its own way. We liked, too, finding back alley routes from street to street, where Norton could find the smells that he so adores! Indoors, we all slept soundly on the high beds in the comfy rooms.

This amazing house served as our base of operations for my sister's wedding, and truly made the weekend incredible! We cannot express our gratitude for having been able to stay here--after this stay, I think some of us are seriously planning a move to Lexington! Thank you so much for opening your house & making a magical weekend even better.

Spacious and comfortable for a group

We had a wonderful stay in your house celebrating our reunion from W & L Law. The location of the house was ideal and the interior and exterior--both--superb. We were able to enjoy all that Lexington has to offer with ample room to spare in the house. The yard and side porch, too, were beautiful and comfortable to relax in. Thank you!

Valentines Day

  • Submitted: Feb 21, 2013
  • Stayed: Feb 2013
Our second visit to Middleton House and 3rd visit to your "places" (March 12, McDowell Studio). Last August we came for my 61st birthday& this visit, my husband, college sweetheart of 37 years, celebrated Valentines Day--

Just two old "Lovebirds" and our "baby" Chi Buddy now 11 years old. No kids or grand kids just our own escape!! Of course we really love this home! No detail spared! In August we enjoyed the blooming flowers in the gardens& this time loved the wonderful fireplace in the sitting room! Brix was great last nite but tonight we're cozy reading by the fire (thanks for setting it up) on a rainy winter night with take-out from next door. We will be back to celebrate another special time here soon. Thanks!!

We had such a wonderful time! The house is perfectly situated for teenagers . . . they can walk to everything. This was our 2nd visit here, and I'm sure it won't be our last.

Wonderful Stay

We rented this property in July for 5 nights. It was a beautiful house, wonderfully decorated, fully equipped, and the owner has thought of so many thoughtful finishing touches. It had all the comforts of home. When we arrived the home was immaculate, and everything was ready for us. The location was perfect, we could walk into town for dinner or coffee in the morning. When we had a question during our stay, the owner, who we so enjoyed meeting, was very responsive and helpful. We highly recommend this rental and hope to come back to visit.
