Lexington Cottage Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

This 200 year old house has been restored and awaits your visit to Historic Lexington Virginia. Whether you are visiting the colleges, vacationing, visiting the Virginia Horse Center or 'whatever' it will be your favorite headquarters for a visit to our area. It is conveniently located on Main Street near the colleges and the Historic District and only 2 miles from the Horse Center. The new park at Jordans Point is down the hill 2 blocks! The Chessie Trail and Woods Creek Trail begin at the park. Access to the Maury River is here as well. The VMI sports facilities are but a short walk up Main Street.

My house is quiet inside its two foot thick walls. I have furnished it with interesting things and it is a special place. Linens are furnished as well as my ecclectic collection of kitchen ware. Come to Lexington and stay a spell at the Historic 1780 Stone House! Thanks, Tom Bradshaw

About The Owner

I have lived here for 35 years and love Lexington. I met Faye while I was a cadet at VMI and we have operated businesses here since I graduated from photography school. We have 3 vacation rental properties and are involved with managing 10 rental properties. I have enjoyed restoring old buildings and especially this 200 year old property. Our focus most recently has been to work on the landscape. Little by little it is improving.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1996

Why The Owner chose Shenandoah Valley

I chose this property while looking for investment property next door. I told the realtor that I sure would like to own the Stone House next door. Several days later he called and said I just Listed it! My answer-'you just sold it'! We had previously built a log cabin as a vacation rental at Natural Bridge and enjoyed the vacation rental business and thought that an in town property might work.

What makes this cottage unique

One of the unique benefits of renting a house instead of a room is space to spread out. Also, uniqueness of the property--not a 'cookie cutter same as everywhere else' accomodation. we had stayed in a house in Williamsburg in the restored area and felt a part of the community even for only a few nights so we thought others might enjoy having a place of their own while visiting might have some appeal. Also, seemed important. the opportunity to bring pets

Great Vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 2 cats very much enjoyed staying at the stone house for a week. The house was perfect and the town of Lexington is great. The people are so friendly and willing to help and everything was just perfect, including the weather!

The fact that our 2 "children" were allowed to be with us made it even more special not having to worry about them being at home alone.

I would most definitely stay at the stone house again!

Vintage Charm

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, cozy home on the edge of town - it was perfect for our weekend in Lexington! The 1780 Stone House is beautifully furnished with assorted antiques and comfortable furniture. The property is set on a dramatic rock face with a second-floor deck with a walkway to the top of the outcropping. The yard is terraced with stone walls and plantings- it's a lovely spot! Although right on the road, it feels private behind a tall wooded fence - inside it is quiet behind the thick stone walls. The gas fireplace added to the ambience.

Thank you!

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our comfortable stay at the Stone House this past weekend. We were in Lexington for the New Market Oath Cadet ceremony. Our two cadets appreciated the opportunity to relax, watch football, and eat a home-cooked meal.

Thank you!

Charming, restful comfort.

  • 5 of 5

My husband, dog, and I had a very restful three days at the stone cottage. It provided a restful return after viewing the sites of Lexington. It isn't hard to fall in love with Lexington. We definitely fell in love with the stone cottage.

Beautiful historic home

  • 4 of 5

The home is comfortable. We enjoyed sitting next to the fireplace in the evening talking and playing cards. There is a deck in the back and a patio with a grill where one can relax, read and breathe in the smell of flowers. Downtown Is a few blocks away and the Virginia Military Institute campus can be reached by walking out the back door and up a hill. We really enjoyed our visit.
