This Cottage is NOT our permanent residence. It a true vacation getaway!
Why Katherine Rand chose Lexington
We wanted a view of the Maury River, proximity to town and privacy. The location is perfect for us. One can easily walk to the heart of beautiful Lexington, or just kick back on the screened porch and enjoy seasonal views (late fall, winter, early spring) of the Maury River.
What makes this Cottage unique
The setting is very private , and it is within walking distance to the downtown area. It overlooks the Maury River, which is visible from the Cottage in late fall, winter and early spring. The Virginia Horse Center is 7 minutes (2.4 miles) away, and VMI and W&L are within walking distance from the cottage.

Close to everything
Great little house in a good location. Clean and comfy accommodations. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place in Lexington.
We had a wonderful stay and experience. Home was perfect. Excellent condition and very well cared for. Owner made sure everything was in order and was readily available if we needed anything. We definitely plan to stay here again!
Thank you so much, Mary. We look forward to your return.
The cottage is just a short drive, just over the Maury River, to campus. It was quite convenient for all the activities of the weekend. Thank you for your quick response to our questions.
The perfect little cottage!
3 VMI graduates back in Lexington for our 10 year reunion and this was the perfect spot to enjoy the weekend with each other. We were 4 adults and 1 child, and fit very comfortably. I loved how secluded, yet close it was to everything. The parking was plentiful and the kids could enjoy the gorgeous fall day outside in the yard. Everything described in listing as provided - I also loved the personal photos - it made it seem like I was staying at a friend's house. AC was great as well! Just like some of the other reviews, to be forewarned about the gravel hill up the driveway. It can be a little misleading (esp for this NYer!) but not bad afterall. Also, the no wifi but thankfully we were out of the house a lot. Lastly, the grill was wonderful to have but it sat inside the porch and after a long day of travel, we did not think to move it to the outside porch. I can totally understand why it's there between stays but maybe a sign would help? Just a suggestion. Otherwise 5 STARS! :-)
Thank you, Chelsey, for your nice review. We will definitely instruct future guests to grill outside the screened in porch. We hope you will stay with us again when you return to Lexington.
We had a great stay! The house was exactly what we needed.
The beds were very comfortable. The a/c worked very well. Be aware, there is no wifi, but that wasn't an issue for me. Please note, the driveway is exceptionally steep and rutted. Some drivers may be uncomfortable with this. We would definitely stay again.
Thank you, Mary for your great review. We appreciate your calling attention to the entrance to the driveway, and the problem will be taken care of immediately. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay, and we hope you will return soon.
We had a great time. The rental felt like home.
Thank you for your nice review. The weekend was perfect for a wedding! Please return anytime.
