We are a 15 minute (6 mile) drive from Lexington, Virginia, home to Washington & Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and the Virginia Horse Center. Rockbridge County Virginia is home to the Maury River, the only river in Virginia that begins & ends in the same county. Spring, summer and fall are great times for running the whitewater in Goshen Pass or tubing the flat water into Lexington. Come to the country where you can stay up late, dazzled by the stars and the Milky Way.
In the late fall & winter, enjoy our cozy cabin and a game of pool. After dark in June and July, the lightning-bug display is amazing every night! Later in the summer and fall, the tree frogs and cicadas fill the air with their songs. The cabin is right on a popular (and challenging) biking route.
The School House is located within 300 yards of a river access point locally known as Alone Mill. Upstream is my personal favorite stretch of canoeing on the Maury, it's a peaceful 5 hour ride in slow water and can be as fast as 2 hours when the river is up! You can put in at Goshen or Rockbridge Baths and walk home from the take-out.
If you're more interested in a bubbling stream, Alone Mill Creek passes within 50 feet of the front door!
Rockbridge County also has thousands of acres of National Forest and State-managed land for hunting and hiking in the mountains. The cabin is within about 6 miles of access at Goshen Pass and other spots are equally close.
Other activities at the School House include a pool table, ping pong, basketball goal and badmitton set. The yard is large and flat, perfect for a football game, and the driveway is flat also, good for the little kids to practice bike riding.
A 1 mile walk will take you to weekend wine tasting at Lexington Valley Vineyard, one of several vineyards in the county.

I have lived in Rockbridge County, VA since 1990. While I attended W&L, my friends & I often drove around the county. I always loved driving through Alone Mill when we were going to Goshen Pass; I knew there was special magic in this place. It's peaceful & the stars are brighter than most.
Sarah or Charles purchased this house in 2007
My partner bought a house at Alone Mill in 1998 & when the Schoolhouse became available in 2007, I jumped at the opportunity. The Maury River here is perfect for canoeing, tubing, or just lounging in a chair at the edge of the water! Anyone who likes to spend time outdoors loves Alone Mill.
Fresh water recreation - fishing, canoeing, boating, tubing - and plenty to do inside or in Lexington area if the weather isn't perfect. Ample space in the cabin for a large group to gather and enjoy time together.
Staying here at the schoolhouse was such a wonderful way to relax at the end of a long day. It is so serene here. The creek is mesmerizing. The absolute quiet is such a treat and perfect for a solid night's sleep. I love all the memorabilia of Virginia found all around the house! It was a nice time and I hope I can repeat it. All the comforts of home. Awesome! Thanks!
Our group of friends from college stayed here for our annual reunion weekend, and we spent most of our time sitting around the large kitchen table, rather than sight-seeing, because it was just so cozy. The entire process from booking to checking out was super convenient, and the owners were so gracious to let us arrive early and stay later. We hope to return here for another friends' weekend!
My wife and and I our cat really enjoyed staying at the Alone Mill Schoolhouse. We went to watch Super Bowl LI and the TVs worked fine. The kitchen was great for hors devores and my patented chili. The house was very clean and quite comfortable. We had some Lexington neighbors join us and we all enjoyed the game and playing pool. Our cat enjoyed all the views out the windows and exploring the house. We own property on the Maury River in Lexington where we camp out before we build our own house. The Schoolhouse was very convenient for getting to town and out to our property where we did a few chores and relaxed on a beautiful winter post-super bowl Monday. It was wonderful to get back to the schoolhouse Monday afternoon and relax in comfort. We look forward to staying there again.
The house was comfortable and the hosts were very accommodating. We enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again in the future.
Excellent house and property. The house is very clean! Owners will go above and beyond to help you if you need any assistance. We have stayed here two times and we plan to stay again next year!!! If you like to escape and get away from everything this is the house to stay out. I really feel like I can relax when I stay here. No worries though, if you need a Walmart its not too far away.
Would give a zero if it would let me. The beds were horrible, could not get any sleep at all.
This is perfect if you are looking to stay in a quaint, historical home. Town is only 20 minutes away but the property is so secluded. The stream is within walking distance. The owners went above and beyond to welcome us.
