Perfect location to enjoy Lexington, the surrounding county of Rockbridge and the Shenandoah Valley, which is abundant in natural beauty and Civil War history. Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute are less than 10 minutes away, as well numerous shops and restaurants. Lexington is also rich with historic sites including the Stonewall Jackson House and burial site, George C Marshall Museum, Robert E Lee Chapel and burial site. The Lenfest Center and Lime Kiln Outdoor theater, both provide music and theater performances.The Virginia Horse Center is the crowning jewel of Virginia’s 1 billion dollar equine industry, and is just minutes away.

Rockbridge Country is one of the most picturesque in Virginia-an artist and photographers paradise.

There are thousands of acres of National Forest and Protected land that provide outdoor activities from fishing, biking, hiking, canoeing, and of course rafting down the Maury River through Goshen Pass. Wine tasting can be enjoyed at several wineries and within a 60 mile radius of Lexington you can enjoy the towns of Staunton, Charlottesville and Roanoke. Two 5 star resorts, The Greenbrier in White Sulfur Springs, WV and The Homestead, in Hot Springs, VA , are both less than 45 minutes from Lexington.

What makes this apartment unique

Our carriage house is surrounded by natural beauty, is private and peaceful, a short drive to Lexington. The living space is very unique and has a luxury feel.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The carriage house is beautiful!. The interior is better than that in many 5 star hotels and the views from the balcony are some of the best views we saw driving through the entire Shenandoah Valley. It feels very private, much more so than the typical hotel room. The house is close to town along some very picturesque roads. If you want to feel like you are in the country, but be close enough to downtown, this is the place!

Lovely Carriagehouse apartment with spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Charming carriagehouse apartment with spectacular views! It was extremely comfortable and beautifully appointed. Janet was lovely! So were the dogs and the chickens. It was the perfect stopover on our trip to Asheville - I would definitely stay there again!

Peaceful Countryside

Enjoyed out stay at the carriage house. Very nice. View from the balcony is awesome. Loved seeing the animals especially the chickens wandering around the yard. Plenty to do in the Lexington area. Will need to go back again!

Country Living at its finest

  • 5 of 5

We visited to attend a wedding locally. We were extremely satisfied with the entire experience. Janet the owner is friendly and available without being intrusive. We loved the farm setting and animals. We were greeted by Winston and Blue the two dogs and moved past the chickens to the entrance. Later in our stay we got to know Jasper the horse. He loved to eat our apple slices and we enjoyed how our dogs reacted to him. The property is tucked under two large maple trees and the view from the balcony is picture perfect. The apartment is well appointed with high quality furnishings and a comfy bed. The kitchen contains everything you might need to cook plus some staples (coffee,tea, oatmeal and of course local eggs!) It is a spacious unit and you could easily stay much longer than we did. It is close to Lexington but far enough away that you feel the true country experience. We would certainly stay here again if and when we are in the area. Thank you Janet!
