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.

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.

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Lexington: I love life in these mountains. So not the rat race of a big city. Slow pace of life.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: 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.
