Overview

Shenandoah Valley House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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.

Fantastic home! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

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.

Best Rental in Lexington

  • 5 of 5

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!

Second Stay at This Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we've rented this home to visit our son at VMI. The location is perfect for walking downtown to restaurants and shops, you can leave your car parked and enjoy downtown Lexington.

The home itself is beautiful and spotless, the grounds spectacular, the owners did a tremendous job rehabbing this treasure.

We will be back again!

Beautiful historic house- completely restored with full modern amenities in downtown Lexington Va

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for seeing Lexington's historic attractions. Walk to everything. Surrounded by beautiful historic neighborhoods for leisurely strolls. Impressively renovated by local couple who are connoisseurs of authentic period fixtures and furnishings. The beds are first rate something important to us. We enjoyed every minute. I would recommend this property unconditionally. Note it would be excellent for families since it has many bedrooms.
