Rockbridge Baths Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 1 Bedroom + Loft, 1 Bath (Sleeps 2)

Come stay in our cozy timber framed guesthouse for a peaceful, serene getaway. The cottage has a large porch that wraps around 2 sides. Two comfy rockers are ideal to enjoy the natural surroundings and abundant wildlife.

We are located on 38 acres off a dirt road and are secluded, yet easily accessible to town. Lexington is a 12 minute drive and Goshen Pass is 15 minutes away for great fly-fishing and other outdoor recreational opportunities.

If you are looking for quiet simplicity or a romantic getaway then this is the place.

The living area has two leather recliners in front of a wood stove (firewood provided if you want to use the stove), a perfect setting for reading and conversation. We have books by local authors and a small collection of art by locals as well.

The kitchen has a small refrigerator, stove, and microwave. There is a table and chairs for meals. The cupboard is stocked with dishes, silverware, glasses, coffee press pot, and a few other pots and pans. Heat and A/C are provided using a wall mounted unit that you control with a remote controller.

The bedroom has a queen bed and the small bathroom has a shower stall, no tub. Linens and towels are provided. There is additional electric baseboard heat in the bedroom and bath.

The loft has a small sofa, table, lamps, and chair. There is also a queen size air mattress for use by those over the age of 10.

There are ceiling fans on the porch and in the living area and bedroom as well.

There is a small washer and dryer for your use in the basement (outside access).

There is no Wi-Fi, TV, or phone service to get in the way of your solitude, but your cell phone will work if you need it.

No pets. No smoking.

About Cindy Mullen

My husband and I came to Lexington 23 years ago. He is a Civil Engineering professor at VMI and I am a self-employed bookkeeper. He is a VMI grad as well so this place is home.

Why Cindy Mullen chose Virginia

I love life in these mountains. So not the rat race of a big city. Slow pace of life.

What makes this cottage unique

We share the peace and quiet with abundant wildlife. There are only 8 families that live on our dirt road so we have very little traffic. We see deer and turkeys on a regular basis.

My husband spent his Christmas vacation painting me 4 barn quilts that are now on 3 of our buildings. They are so bright and pretty.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just want to take a moment and thank you for helping make our vacation time so much fun. The cottage was perfect ... a really delightful place to stay, and your help and information when we needed it made our visit even more delightful. We hope we can come back some time when the weather is cold.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful guest house. Spotless, comfortably and attractively furnished, and set in a lovely and private corner of the owner's property. Cindy was a thoughtful hostess and brought us some home-baked goodies during our stay. Though off the beaten path, the drive back and forth to Lexington was easy and not an issue. Would recommend it to anyone.

The cabin and surrounding property are beautiful!! Nice drive through beautiful mountain scenery to get to the cabin. There were plenty of dishes, utensils, pots and pans. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was a good size. All linens were provided, extra pillows and towels. The Mullens were excellent hosts!! We would definitely stay here again!!!

Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for a one night getaway. We came up to see a VMI football game and see our son. Our adult daughter tagged along and the loft was a perfect place for her to sleep. Very well-stocked, clean and cozy. Wish we could have stayed longer to hang out on the porch and read a good book.

Hoping we can go back in the future. Great overall trip and the guest house was the greatest!!! Loved being secluded from all of the hustle and bustle. Cindy greeted us and was very helpful of any needs that we had............which was almost zero. She had thought of everything and had my favorite flowers, daisies, thru out the house.

A Little Bit of Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

Loved the porch, nature sounds, the incredible star-scape, the seclusion. Cindy welcomed us, with fresh flowers in hand, and got us oriented to Lexington and the W&L campus, where we were spending much of our days. This is a perfect retreat for two introverts with books. Always looked forward to the porch at the beginning and end of the day. The whole guest house experience was wonderful.
