Absolutely lovely! We enjoyed every moment in this very comfortable farm house with our family.

  • 5 of 5

We came down to Lexington to see family and celebrate Thanksgiving together. I knew from the photos and description that I would love this property and that it would fit our needs and when we arrived i knew i was right! The house was large enough to comfortably fit eight people. There were four large bedrooms, two bathrooms and several cozy sitting areas.We enjoyed the large farm style kitchen and beautiful dining room to share meals. The front, back and upstairs porches were great to enjoy the afternoon sun. The views out of every window were simply gorgeous. Rebecca was on site and a pleasure to meet and speak to! I learned a lot about raising horses and she made us feel right at home. I am an animal lover so seeing the horse grazing in their corals , the pony wondering around the property or just watching Rebecca's three dogs running around made me so happy. We would recommend this property to anyone and hope to come back the next time we are in Lexington.

wonderful setting and gracious host

  • 5 of 5

This house and property was a peaceful, quiet setting with a very well equipped house. Rebecca is a gracious hostess and we loved the house and the views. We especially enjoyed sitting on the front porch and grilling out with our family. Thanks for helping us make some great memories, Rebecca!

Wonderful historic farm house in Lexington

  • 5 of 5

Rebecca and her home are both wonderful! We shared the entire home with another family for VMI Parents' Weekend and had plenty of space. The house and grounds are lovely and comes complete with everything you need for great meals and relaxation. The location is off the beaten path but less than 10 minutes from Post/downtown Lexington, even closer to grocery and restaurants. We look forward to visiting again!
