Absolutely LOVED this property and our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Sunny Brook Farm was the perfect weekend getaway for my family. It was incredible walking out onto the back porch to see the wide open fields beyond us and the horses grazing and romping all day long. They would come to the fence and just stand, quietly, as we enjoyed our time on the porch. They were such welcome company. We felt blessed that they gave us their time and attention.

The house was beautiful, clean, and charmingly decorated. The beds were super comfortable and the bedrooms (especially the upstairs blue room looking out on the fields) were warm and inviting and cozy. I could have read a book all day in that blue bedroom looking out on the fields!

Rebecca, our host, was excellent. She is knowledgeable of the area and willing to share recommendations with guests. She even welcomed us to the barn to see the foul and the pregnant mares (2 of them!). The foul just loved the company and wasn't shy at all.

Rebecca is just wonderful and she has created the perfect spot for couples and families like ours -- just looking for a quiet, peaceful, escape from their everyday. This was a gift for us and we'll surely be back. Thank you, Rebecca!

Peace and quiet in the hills

  • 4 of 5

We rented this farm house while attending a family reunion. The host was gracious, welcoming us with a freshly baked sweet bread and being available on site to answer any questions we had. Three couples and 2 singles slept comfortably in this home: good beds, spacious bedrooms and quiet. One full bath and one bedroom on the ground floor worked well for the oldest couple who had trouble with stairs. The second full bath is upstairs. We only ate breakfast in, and the kitchen was well appointed with cookware and condiments to help us enjoy the space. Although the property is situated close to the interstate, we were there in July and did not hear traffic noise from the highway, so we enjoyed sitting on one of the porches in the morning.

Great place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Lexington this past weekend. We were there for our mother’s funeral and family lodging needs exceeded the space we had available. We were so fortunate to find Rebecca’s home, a lovely, spacious farmhouse that accommodated all of us. The house was very comfortable and the peaceful setting allowed us to enjoy watching the horses, dogs and cats; we even saw a red fox in the pasture. Rebecca made us feel so welcome; even had a delicious loaf of banana bread for us on our arrival. We look forward to visiting again, when we have time to enjoy all that the Lexington area has to offer.
