  • Nice little weekend away

    "The schoolhouse is a nice little home in the middle of the country, but a short (10 minute) drive to the closest town. We enjoyed our time at the schoolhouse, but were on the go most of the time we were in town. We spent most of our time in Natural Bridge enjoying the Safari Park, Zoo and Natural Bridge itself. It appears that a black widow has taken residence in the window outside the AC unit in the living room, so please be careful when you remove. I forgot to leave a note when we left on the counter about this. I will say I am not positive, but I believe there might be a spirit/ghost in the house. The first night, I thought my 16 yrd old daughter walk by the room as I saw a young girl throught the door jam go by, but come to find out she was in the living room still watching tv. The owners were great and answered any questions I had beforehand and were flexible with us arriving early. Thank you!"

  • The best in Lexington!

    "The McDowell House was the perfect place for my family to stay while visiting Lexington for Thanksgiving. The house is incredibly spacious, with 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, and a well-appointed kitchen. It was great to gather in the sitting room or around the dining room table, but was also really easy to sneak off to a secluded comfy chair to read or look at art. The architectural and historical character of the house itself is very impressive, even for Lexington. Finally, the location could not be better for just walking out the front door and taking advantage of all Lexington has to offer--the universities, shops, and restaurants."

  • This house has become our "home-away-from-home"

    "We have stayed at Serene House twice now and can not imagine a more perfect place to spend time in Shenandoah Valley. Although it is in a community, the houses are situated so you really feel completely private as though you are alone in the woods. Sitting on the large deck looking out at the trees and mountains is just beautiful We appreciate the fully equipped kitchen which is set up perfectly to allow any cooking endeavors you may wish. The house is always spotlessly clean and fresh when we arrive, the linens and towels are wonderful quality, the beds are so comfortable, and sitting by the fire after a day of exploring the area with a book or a glass of wine can not be beat. We don't have children, but the bedroom decorated in Winnie the Pooh would be so much fun for kids..we have had adult guests who loved it! Our dog loves the yard...we live in an area she can not be off leash, so the freedom of the huge fenced in yard is a real treat for her. We come for extended stays..three or four weeks, and I can honestly say we have come to love this house as our own and think of it as our second home. Convenient to all local sights and attractions, wonderful restaurants and wineries, do not hesitate to reserve some time here, you will never regret this choice."

  • Great getaway

    "Home is very well equipped for entertainment and relaxing. Hot tub was perfect in the cold weather. Loads of space in this house. Great loaded kitchen for any cooking you may want to do. Convenient to town but far enough to be away from it all too. Very quiet neighbors. Owners were easy to contact and work with. Very good value."
