Last Minute Luxury
My boyfriend and I (along with his parents) fell upon this wonderful country home by chance (ok, we were forced by circumstance) and I couldn't be more thankful for it! After a windstorm knocked out power all over the state, including in the cottage we had originally rented, we managed to secure five nights here. I don't think things could have worked out any better than they did.
Old Farm Road truly is the best of both worlds; my boyfriend and I loved the secluded hilltop location and spent most of our mornings and nights on the back deck. A great view coupled with complete quiet was exactly what we look for in a getaway. His parents loved being so close to town (they're not so used to the woods) and we often took day trips to Lexington and neighboring areas.
The house itself is clean and incredibly spacious; my boyfriend and I stayed in the master suite while his parents slept downstairs. That too was the best of both worlds; we spent long days and lazy nights together as a family but were able to sleep, shower and getaway (if needed) in complete privacy.
We cooked almost every meal of our trip, thanks to a kitchen stocked with all the utensils you could imagine (bring your own spices, etc.). The outdoor BBQ was used every day. Even the two-car garage came in handy when we arrived home in a downpour.
Lexington is a small town (smaller than I thought)... spend a day walking around Main Street and support the locals, then venture out a bit. Driving Goshen Pass is a must, especially if it's summer (you can swim in the river) and Charlottesville is just an hour away if you're looking for more activity; its outdoor, downtown mall has plenty of options for shopping, casual eating and finer dining.
I feel fortunate to have found, during such a hectic time, the perfect respite in Old Farm Road. I have to mention how generous and accommodating Vicki was; she took all my panicked phone calls, made sure her house was in proper working order after the storm, and greeted us with a smile when we arrived.
Thank you for a great stay!
Owner's Response: I am so happy it all worked out. It was a pleasure having you all visit and I hope you will find your way back to Lexington again.
