The Ridge is the ultimate peaceful getaway with spectacular views

Bedrooms 2
Property type house
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

1 large BR, 1 small BR, 1 full bath, 4 guest maximum

The Ridge is a natural wood, rustic timber-constructed, saltbox design with wide oak floors, a balcony bedroom, cathedral ceiling, and a wrap-around deck. The views are spectacular from the interior and from the deck! There are wooded hiking trails on the property which lead to a picnic table in a forest. Mountain streams, swimming, fishing, golfing, and historic sightseeing are all close by. Quiet and peaceful, the Ridge is the perfect place for a couple to relax and recharge.

Conveniently located near Lexington VA: You would think you were many miles out in the country but in fact The Ridge is less than 3 miles from the city limits of historic Lexington Virginia. Home of Washington and Lee University, Virginia Military Institute, and the Virginia Horse Center, Lexington has many historic and other sites of interest. Two 'must see' sites are Natural Bridge of Virginia, one of the seven natural wonders of the world located 20 miles south, and Goshen Pass, a beautiful mountain river with picnic facilities and swimming holes located 15 miles west. Both Universities have civil war museums. The Virginia Horse Center holds many equestrian competitions and shows throughout the year.

Hiking trails: There are two hiking trails on the property, both leading to a picnic location with table. One leads into a mature forest. The other climbs to a hill top clearing with a breathtaking view.

The Ridge is easily accessible by car over paved county roads and a gentle well maintained gravel driveway.

Perfect place to ring in the new year!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I wanted to get away someplace private and special to ring in 2018. This was PERFECT! It was very cold that weekend, but the cabin was toasty warm and has a spectacular view of the mountains. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking. John was very prompt and helpful when we goofed up with the gas logs pilot light. It was just the ticket for a quiet, romantic getaway.

nice place , great view

  • 5 of 5

Hosts were great and the view was outstanding. Easy to get to and although only 3 miles from town..... like another world. And we visited in January with temps about 5 degrees! Charming house. We would return in a heartbeat.

Such a quaint, cozy place

  • 5 of 5

The Ridge was a perfect, cozy getaway for our family of three. The view was even more spectacular than the VRBO pictures. The cottage is solid and very well built. It was convenient to town, yet felt secluded. We braved the freezing weather and visited Natural Bridge - just a short drive from Lexington on Rt. 11. Had dinner at The Red Hen - highly recommend. We look forward to returning when the weather is warmer.

Charming and relaxing getaway with great views

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely adored this cabin! The owners were extremely kind and easy to get in contact with, and we appreciated their attention to detail, from the cleanliness of the space to the additional commodities located throughout the cabin that made us feel at home. The views from the living room and deck are spectacular, and the proximity to Lexington's shops and restaurants were a plus as well. We have already recommended this cabin to our friends and family and we are planning on coming back in the future.
