Just blocks from Washington & Lee University and Virginia Military Institute, historic Middleton House offers privacy and seclusion in the heart of picturesque downtown Lexington. This handsome residence, with extensive fenced gardens, combines period taste--including antiques, art, and original c.1840 colors--with modern comfort. A sunny sitting room, generous dining room, and eat-in kitchen overlooking the garden provide an ideal setting for relaxing and entertaining. Bedrooms have excellent mattresses, high-quality linens, and their own bathrooms.
Without getting in a car, guests enjoy cooking locally grown foods from the Lexington Farmer's Market down the street, shopping in Lexington's vibrant downtown, walking the beautiful Woods Creek Trail nearby, and lounging on the wide screened porch. Middleton House is the perfect place for a get-away vacation, a party, a wedding reception, or a reunion. For comments from the Middleton House guestbook, please see our posted reviews.
The pictures somehow don't do this house justice - the interior is beautiful, clean, and welcoming with plenty of room for our group (4 couples). The house is located right in town with most places within walking distance. Peter was a very welcoming host - check in and check out were seamless. Overall the house is a perfect mix of historic charm and modern amenities where it counts (kitchen, bathrooms). Highly recommend!
This was a fantastic home for our family to celebrate Thanksgiving away from home. We had plenty of space to gather to play games or watch movies, but there was also space to spread out. The kitchen was fantastic, I loved the stove--cooked a perfect turkey! We would love to stay again in the future.
We were in town for a horse show at the Virginia Horse Center -- this house was perfect. Town is so close to the show grounds. House is beautiful. It was so great to come home to and enjoy the quiet backyard. And so many wonderful restaurants within walking distance. I can't wait to come back to the horse show grounds just to stay here.
Our group of 3 couples rented this house for a weekend in Feb and the property was a perfect fit. The bedrooms were all extremely comfortable and offered us the privacy we wanted, while the kitchen, dining room, and other living spaces were great for hanging out. The owner has done a fantastic job restoring the property - tastefully decorated and extremely well equipped. The location of the property was also excellent - we never had to fight for parking when going to dinner or breakfast. Everything, including W&L, was within walking distance. Definitely the best rental in Lex. I look forward to booking again the next time I visit.
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.
We rented for our nephews VMI graduation. This house is everything the listing states and more. Best home we have ever rented in Lexington. So well suited for a family event and so close to everything in town. Home is beautiful inside and out. We so enjoyed all the spacious rooms, the wonderfully decorated bedrooms , the chef's kitchen , the large fenced in yard and the screened in porch which is perfect for celebrating. The owner's did not miss a thing in this home!
