Lovely house and a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We were happily surprised by how beautiful the property is. All the furnishings and decorations are lovely and the owners have created a very inviting feel. It is quiet and peaceful, wonderful views, and we even saw deer out in the field one morning. Thank you for sharing a lovely place.

If you are looking for a charming place to stay, look no further.

  • 4 of 5

Vine Cottage is a beautifully restored home. It was like stepping back in time with the antique furniture while still maintaining all the modern day conveniences. From the fully stocked kitchen, formal dining room, large family room, two bathrooms, five bedrooms and fire pit, we really enjoyed our stay. There was a brief problem with the well and the owners resolved that issue in a timely manner. If you are looking for a place where you can relax and experience nature at it's best, then this is the place for you.

Stunning Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We were expecting a nice little house, but the "cottage" was very spacious, comfortable, and downright elegant. Amenities like coffee, popcorn, and granola bars were a welcome touch. The beds were tall (probably not ideal for the very young or old) and very comfortable antiques. We are looking forward to booking our next stay!

Wonderful getaway on beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We are so happy that we chose to stay at the Vine Cottage for our weekend getaway with friends! This was the perfect house for 3 families (3 couples and 3 toddlers). The sounds of giggles filled the house from morning to night! No rental house will ever be toddler proof, but the set up of this house was great for giving them enough space to roam around but yet we could all easily keep an eye on them. Only recommendation if traveling with children is to bring outlet covers - they aren't provided and there are SO many outlets in this old house and many of them are higher up on the wall than in newer homes. We will bring some next time if not provided.

The house offers plenty of beds and storage space (we love how there are 3 Queen beds to choose from!). The property is absolutely beautiful and the owners are very gracious and accomodating. We highly recommend the tour of the mansion/b&b so you can learn more of the great history of the property. It's very conveniently located near the Safari Park (so much fun!), the zoo (I don't highly recommend the zoo though....), and natural bridge. Not far from Lexington but we didn't get a chance to venture out.

In sum, we highly recommend this property and will be sure to return! Hoping for a return trip this winter/spring.

Our four-night stay at the Vine Cottage was a wonderful experience.

  • 5 of 5

Our four-night stay at the Vine Cottage was a wonderful experience. We were searching for just the right place to bring our family from England. And boy, did we find the right place! We had beautiful mountain views, excellent accommodations, and fantastic hosts. Chris and Cliff made our stay extra special. The cottage is a spacious five-bedroom house with all the amenities of home. It came with comfortable beds, towels, linens, snacks, and a fully equipped kitchen. Besides the Natural Bridge and the quaint town of Lexington, there is a lot to see and do up and down Interstate 81. As an added treat, Cliff gave us an informative tour of the historic mansion that they are restoring back to the glorious charm of the early 1900’s. They are currently operating it as a B&B and a special event venue. It is worth seeing. So, not only do we recommend you book the Vine cottage for your next family or friends’ gathering, but that you also check into Chris and Cliff’s B&B for your next romantic getaway. The Forest Oaks Estate is a wonderful place to stay for any reason.
